I've put some miles on this now and thought I'd review. The spring is not too heavy and the dead zone, or neutral movement without input, is smaller than most sticks I've played with, but still present. I like this because the direction inputs are sure to be deliberate, but I'm also not missing inputs.
It resets to neutral very quickly which I was a bit concerned about given the light resistance of the spring. Feels great!Str8Gr8

Up until I built my Japanese arcade controller I had only ever played with Suzo Happ joysticks (which I love)
In comparison to a Suzo Happ this stick is ridiculously smooth and has such a short throw it took some time to get use to it.
I definitely recommend his product.White Kong

My goto stick
I use JLFs in all my cabs. Love the octo even tho fgc has hard-on for stock square gates. Having all my machines using same hardware makes it easy to do on-site repairs. Tony

The standard that all joysticks should aspire to
I've been playing on stick for a good majority of my life, mostly at arcades. The long life of this stick is the main reason why I always prefer sanwa parts in my fightstickGiovanni
