Those looking for further ways to accessorize your fightstick, opting to match colors across buttons and joystick lever, didn't have many options when it came to the joystick shaft.
The Seimitsu LS-32 Aluminum Extended Joystick shaft comes in several anodized colors. The standard length for the Seimitsu LS-32 shaft is 76.8mm. The extended shaft is 91.8 mm in length, adding 15mm to its length. This shaft was designed to assist installing your LS-32 joystick lever into a maximum 3/4" (18mm) MDF wooden control panel. It is compatible with joysticks from the Seimitsu LS-32 series, including the higher tension LS-38.
Compatibility with Sanwa and Seimitsu Accessories
The aluminum shaft matches the threading found in the stock LS-32 shaft. Nearly all balltop and battop accessories that currently fit the standard LS-32 or JLF series shafts are compatible. Exceptions include any LS-32-SC shaft accessories, since the shaft is longer than the standard model, and the dustwasher conforms to the shaft.
An advantage to aluminum is its low weight. With an equally lightweight balltop, you may find that an existing Sanwa or Seimitsu spring allows for proper return to center without bounceback.
