I bought this to replace my Hayabusa because I didn't like how loose it was. The JLF has a tighter feel even with it's stock spring. It mounted without any issues in my Hori RAP4 Kai using the same screws that held the Hayabusa in place. If you aren't a fan of the Hayabusa this is a great alternative. ben the bear

High Quality, High Accuracy Joystick
Equipped with the octagonal restrictor plate, the Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT Joystick is the standard joystick in all Super 78, Super Twin 78, Super CV, and Super Arcade controllers. We've installed literally hundreds of them and never had a complaint or a problem. The quick-disconnect harness makes wiring a snap, while the threaded shaft invites endless knob customization. Also enjoyed every transaction with the Focus Attack team. Very grateful to have them as collaborators.

It's the Standard for Joysticks
The standard is not a bad thing. By that I mean that this joystick is perfect for almost any setup. If I'm not mistaken, the majority of fightsticks bough already assembled come with this. Easy to mod as well. I use a 2lb spring for added resistance in the stick and I installed the octagonal gate. I really like the feel. If this is your first build, or even if you consistently build fightsticks, I highly recommend it.Unknown

Arrived with a bent pin
One of the 5 pins that connects to the harness was bent out of shape. It took me a while to re-adjust it back since it couldn't fit into the 5-pin harness. I had to use a toothpick that bent the pin to its intended position, insert the harness half-way and take the toothpick out. Seeing how stiff it was, I can only assume it was accidentally manufactured this way.
The stick itself is great - responsive and fast. A loud and satisfying clicking sound can be heard when using it.Lukas
