    Important Note

    The CWL-309Helpme-K-JMS-ST35 mounting plate is NOT compatible with Sanwa JLF mount cases such as MadCatz TE or Qanba Q4RAF.  Please select the Crown CWL-309MJ-JMS-ST25 Joystick Clear Black if you require a Sanwa compatible mount. Partial assembly is required; install joystick lever through body, push actuator into bottom of lever stem, and push up against the internal spring to connect the e-clip.  Use needle nose-pliers to fasten the e-clip to the bottom of the joystick lever, pushing it into the lever's bottom groove.

    Crown has released several Korean style models within the 300 numbered series, such as the 303-N, 307-N, and now the 309Helpme-K. In this iteration, Crown carefully reviewed feedback from diehard Tekken players - specifically Helpme, and eschewed select characteristics from earlier models to deliver what many would consider a happy medium for gameplay.

    Meeting in the Middle

    The 303-N main characteristic is longer travel distance, while the 307's larger actuator shortened dead zones. The 309Helpme-K-JMS-ST35 is Crown's closest attempt to mimic the popular Myoungshin Fanta Joystick, narrowing the throw distance and a smaller, durable 16.5mm acetate plastic actuator.

    Silicone rubber grommetThe Difference in Silicone

    The ST variant uses a white silicone rubber tension system with a shore A rating of 35.  This is indeed lighter than the 55 shore A rating in the 307 series.  Tests conducted at Hibal, however, show that the silicone is slightly thicker in the 309.  Executing command input are easier, while returning to neutral is a bit tougher from the reduced tension.

    Still, the benefits of the rubber tension is a faster return to neutral, which is perfect for 3D based games such as Tekken in which wavedashing and consistent movement is required.  The CWL-309HelpmeK-JMS-ST35 continues to share the same characteristics as other Fanta joysticks, with smooth, cornerless control for QCB, QCF (quarter-circle back/forward) HCB, HBC (half-circle back/forward) and full 360 motions.

    Panasonic Microswitches

    The CWL-309Helpme-K-JMS-ST35 currently uses a Panasonic AM51630C69N microswitch.  This model is similar to the one used in the Seimitsu LS-40 Joystick (.187 Fastener Type) with RE Plate and fastener-based LS-32 model, which uses the AM51662C5N microswitch.  It has a lighter touch than the Gersung GSM-V0323A3 .187" Long Straight Hinge Lever Microswitch.  Like the 303 and 307 models, each microswitch can be removed from the joystick and replaced by another.  This opens up potential for customizing the switch sensitivity and performance.  The body of the CWL-307FJ-JMS-ST encloses the microswitches, offering a tighter form factor than the 303-FK. 

    CWL-309HelpmeK-JMS-ST35 Specs

    .187" to 5-Pin Conversion Harness Included with Purchase.

    The CWL-309Helpme-K-JMS-ST35 utilizes a .187" connection for each microswitch - one for directional control signal, and one for ground.  Most commercial and some prebuilt custom joysticks use the Sanwa JLF-H harness. Our .187 to 5-pin Conversion Harness is included with purchase.

    Compatible with Crown Converter Shaft

    The CWL-307F-J-W is compatible with the Crown JLF Conversion Shaft - our solution that allows you to install an interchangeable balltop or battop onto your Crown joystick.  This provides a much greater amount of customization. Bundle with this Crown joystick lever to save $1.70 off retail!

    CWL-309-Helpme-K-ST35 Specifications 

    The bottom construction of the CWL-309-HelpmeK-ST35 joystick lever matches that of the 303-N though colored black.  The microswitches are positioned closer to the actuator than the 307, and are not embedded into the housing as the 307. See specs below for measurements.

    IPW Fight Tech: Crown 309 Helpme, CWL-309MJ, & IST FLF-ST levers video review

    I bought and tried three Korean arcade stick levers! Two of them are from Crown (Samducksa) with help from popular Tekken player Helpme. The other lever is from IST, creators of the Makestick Pro arcade stick case, more in line with selling levers than making them. Whether you are veteran of Korean levers or looking to try it for the first time, check out the video and read the written portion found below too. Order links for these levers can also be found below! ------------- FULL REVIEW: CROWN 309 HELPME LEVER: - CROWN CWL-309MJ LEVER: - IST FLF-ST LEVER: - .185 TO 5-PIN CONVERSION HARNESSES: - (Makestick) - (Paradise Arcade Shop) - (Focus Attack) .185 QUICK DISCONNECT WIRES: - (Paradise Arcade Shop) - (Focus Attack) CROWN SILICONE GROMMETS: - MAKESTICK WEBSTORE: - ------------- IPW TESTS: CROWN CWJ-303FK KOREAN JOYSTICK LEVER: - NICEGAMETV'S VIDEO ON GEONDAE NET ARENA (철권7 FR 제 2회 매장대항전 매장 소개 - 건대 넷아레나): - ADDITIONAL CROWN 309 & 309MJ DEMONSTRATION VIDEOS: - (309) - (309) - (309MJ) - (309MJ) ------------- CREDITS: Carlo Dela Cruz/The Phantomnaut - Director, producer MUSIC: Rukunetsu - TOUCH AND GO T7 [2016] ( *Original composition for Tekken 4 by Satoru Kosaki DOWNLOAD: -------------- web: twitter: facebook:
