    Important Note

    It is recommended that you add the .187 to 5-pin Conversion Harness to your order if are installing into a Japanese Fightstick or model that instead uses a 5-pin connector rather than .187" terminals. You can save $1.25 when you option bundle with this product. 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-FK, CWL-307-FJ, and now the 309MJ. In this iteration, Crown carefully reviewed feedback from diehard Tekken players, and eschewed select characteristics from earlier models to recreate the feel of a Fanta.  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.

    Low Profile Collar

    Comparison (photo by

    The 303-N main characteristic is longer travel distance, while the 307's larger actuator shortened dead zones. The 309MJ-JMS-ST25 is Crown's closest attempt to mimic the popular Myoungshin Fanta Joystick, narrowing the throw distance and a smaller, durable 16.5mm acetal (acetic anhydride + formaldehyde) plastic actuator.

    One of the most prominent feedback from players when trying the earlier model 303-FK and 307-FJ is accuracy issues that arose from lack of a collar.  Crown decided to incorporate a 6mm low-profile collar that offered the best of both worlds.  The short collar allows you to install the lever into Japanese style Fightsticks or cabinets (which often come with s-plate mount points), yet it maintains the accuracy that came with use of the collar.

    Silicone rubber grommetThe Difference in Silicone

    The ST variant uses a white silicone rubber tension system with a shore A rating of 25.  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-309MJ-JMS-ST25 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.

    Korean Gersung GSM-V1623A3 Microswitches

    The CWL-309Helpme-K-KMS-ST35 currently uses a Gersung GSM-V1623A3 .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-309FJ-JMS-ST encloses the microswitches, offering a tighter form factor than the 303-FK. 

    CWL-309MJ-JMS-ST25 Similarities and Differences 

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

    1. Favorite K stick

      Nuff said. If you like Tekken, do yourself a favor and get this lever on Sep 4th 2019

    2. Best Stick

      Absolutely Perfect for Tekken on Sep 1st 2019

    3. Great Stick

      I would say get medium tension for best feel. Also that this with its low collar can fit in my madcatz te round 1 but you have to bend connectors. on Aug 15th 2019

    4. An Amazing Korean Lever

      I have tried and own several Korean levers including the Golden Lever. For the price, the Crown 309MJ is hands down the best Korean lever money can buy. If you are a Tekken player, it's great for wavedashing, KBD, and all movement in general. Also, the 309MJ works well with 2D fighters.

      The build quality is fantastic and the lever can be installed in many arcade/fight sticks out on the market.

    5. Crown Joystick

      I used this to replace my sanwa on my qanba stick. I like how it returns to neutral faster and it feels much more comfortable. on Aug 5th 2019

    6. Throw your JLF in the trash can

      Korean style, even the euro IL is vastly superior to the JLF, that is if you like and need diagonals. 309 mj with 35 grommet works great. on Jun 15th 2019

    7. Very Nice

      Feels nice on May 3rd 2019

    8. Preferred to a JLF

      I’ve spent good time with a JLF. I used an oversized actuator and a stock spring, stretched. I tried heavier springs but thought they were too heavy.
      I then decided to give the 309mj S25 a shot. I prefer it to the JLF overall. I also tried a heavier S35 Grommet. As a Tekken Mishima player I felt it slowed down inputs because of the increased resistance. I’ve gone back to the S25.

    9. Perfect but one small problem.

      The lever works fine, took some time to get used to seeing that it has move deadzone then a JLF. when upgrading the switches the screw hole cracked a little on the top right corner. idk if this is going to effect the stick in the long run. but that's how I got mine. I'd assume it was done during manufacturing, I didnt re scew the unscrews. I was unscrewing them for the first time. on Apr 22nd 2019

    10. Great product, great customer service

      The crown 309mj has without a doubt become my favorite lever. It’s just a totally different feel and you just have to feel it to understand. I feel it helps with faster inputs where you need to get to neutral fast and have precision(tekken).

      Also, I had an issue with a defective part and they responded within 24 hours of me emailing them. John was very helpful and it was a complete no hassle ordeal. Great customer service on top of great parts.

    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.
