    Important Note

    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.

    The latest addition to the popular Crown/Samducksa 309 MJ family comes from Korean joystick modder Benylisnew-window-icon.png This iteration of the 309 includes an alternative to the well-known Gersung brand microswitch, switch stability using metal plates, a modified Samducksa 303 series actuator, and - most noticeable from a glance, two bright new colors.

    Low Profile Collar

    Crown has released several Korean style models within the 300 numbered series, such as the 303-FK, CWL-307-FJ, and now the 309MJ. Much like the FK and FJ models, the 309MJ ensures installation in popular Japanese style Fightsticks such as the Mad Catz Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick TE2+ PS4/PS3/PC or Qanba Obsidian PS3/PS4/PC Fightstick. The 309MJ series incorporates a 6mm low-profile collar, allowing you to install the lever into Japanese style Fightsticks or cabinets (which often come with s-plate mount points), yet it maintains much of the accuracy and feel that came with use of the high collar.

    ST-35 Blue Silicone with DX Core

    The ST variant uses a blue silicone rubber tension system with a shore A rating of 35. Many consider this the "goldilocks" of tensions for Korean grommets, offering a suitable elasticity to easily reach diagonals, while satisfyingly returning to neutral without much wobble.  3D based games such as Tekken in which wavedashing and consistent movement is required the 35 short grommet provides smooth, corner-less control for QCB, QCF (quarter-circle back/forward) HCB, HBC (half-circle back/forward) and full 360 motions.

    The grommet surrounds a 303/307/309 variation of the DX core first introduced in products such as the Samducksa SDL-301-DX and the updated Samducksa SDL-301-DX-S Joystick Lever (2018 Model). To note, the 301DX and 303/307/309 DX cores are not compatible.

    Something Different: Starion SZM-V16-2FA-83 Microswitches

    Starion SZM-V16-2FA-83 microswitchA departure from the common Gersung GSM-V1623A2 or popular GSM-V1623A3 microswitch is Benylis' preference to the Starion SZM-V16-2FA-83 hinge-lever microswitch.  Enthusiasts within the Korean lever community say that it possesses similar overall characteristics of the A3 and actuation features of the Omron V microswitch, though more economically priced than either model.  If we look at the estimated specs of the Omron V model:

    • Operation force max: 1.23N (125gf)
    • Pre-travel max: 4.0mm
    • Movement differential max: 1.5mm
    • Over-travel min: 1.6mm
    • Operation point: 15.2mm ± 1.2mm
    • Release force max: 0.14N (14.3gf)

    Let's also look at the specs of the Gersung A3

    • Operation force max: rough estimated 1.76N (~180gf)
    • Pre-travel max: 4.0mm
    • Movement differential max: 1.5mm
    • Over-travel min: 1.6mm
    • Operation point: 15.2mm ± 1.2mm

    The Starion provides an approximate ~180gf feel or (300gf for the pin plunger model). The Omron family does not possess a 180gf equivalent microswitch.
