  • Product Description

    Sanwa's retains their line of popular quiet levers such as the JLF-TPRG-8AYT-SK Silent Microswitch Joystick.  Their latest model - JLF-TPRG-8BYT-SK - instead gives players a bit more tension during play.

    Higher tension springs such as the 2lb Tension Spring for Sanwa JLF or 4lb Tension Spring for Sanwa JLF have remained quite popular since their debut. The JLF-TPRG-8BYT-SK instead offers crisp tension directly from its new microswitch - the Omron D2RV-G-SD3.

    Omron D2RV-G-SD3 microswitch

    The D2RV-G-SD3 microswitch features a spring with a stronger repulsive force.  This means that the joystick lever shaft can return to neutral faster than the 8AYT.  That said, the feeling does not stray far from Sanwa's renowned JLF-TP-8YT joystick lever, meaning there is little to no learning curve.

    Familiar Light Versus New Heavy: A Subjective Approach

    In a competitive environment such as Fighting games, players are always looking for that slight edge to improve their gameplay.  But there also exists those who want to tailor the gameplay to their preferences.  Sanwa plans to support both the lighter-tension JLF-TPRG-8AYT-SK and JLF-TPRG-8BYT-SK models together.

    Also important to note is that aside from the new D2RV-G-SD3 microswitch, the JLF-TPRG-8BYT-SK has the same functionality and cosmetic appearance as the older 8AYT model.

    Single Mold Restrictor Plate

    Familiarity was the direction Sanwa took with the JLF-TPRG-8AYT-SK, and the updated 8BYT model.  Installing the lever is as simple as the reliable Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT Joystick.  

    Sanwa's blue restrictor plate is designed to as a single piece for precise control.  The restrictor plate can eliminate the slight wobble present in the original GT-8F's separate pieces - the insert and gate itself.  Please note that because of the single mold design, this gate is not compatible with the JLF GT-Y Octagonal Restrictor Plate Insert. That said, those looking for octagonal control can still install the Sanwa GT-Y Octagonal Restrictor Gate onto this joystick.

    1. Trusted Name

      Since starting my new custom stick project I had wanted to experiment with different sticks.However, in the end I decided to stick with sanwa because they're a trusted name. This stick is works very well just like previous iterations. I did knock off 1-star because all the way it is advertised as silent. The sound of the stick rubbing against the sides is just as loud as clickier sanwa sticks.

      Overall, it is still a very good stick and would recommend it to anyone needing a replacement or building new.

    2. A silent must !

      Was tired of clicking noises filling the room. This suits me perfectly. Super silent and efficient. Ive added the 4lb spring. Works like a charm. Totally recommend it. on Apr 18th 2019

    3. Pleasant Surprise

      I was really worried about the "silence". Thru years with arcade sticks, I've come tor really enjoy the "click" of standard switches.
      Once I got over the silence, I found the stick exceeded my expectations and feels amazing.

    4. Precise and Silent

      This joy stick is the best ive played on. The response and feel of the stick is exactly what I was hopeing for. The microswitches are silent but still have that feeling and reaction of click switches. I added a different tension spring to the stick to make it feel sturdier and take a beating. on May 23rd 2017

    5. Worth the price for a replacement stick.

      Very quiet, easy to install. I put an octa-gate instead of the square gate, and still works very well! on May 22nd 2017
