  • Product Description

    Players sick of their joystick shaft jutting out from their backpack or messenger bag can rejoice! The Link by SRK's PhreakMods is a fantastic new 2-piece Seimitsu LS-32 shaft design; once installed, removing or attaching the protruding joystick shaft with balltop or battop is incredibly simple and hassle-free.

    The Link comes with a spring-loaded top piece, a bottom shaft piece for install into the joystick housing, and a MadCatz TE-compatible hex key for easy tightening of your accessory balltop or battop. To use, simply pull up on the spring-loaded top piece with your thumb and forefingers, then pull off.  To reattach, again pull on the spring-loaded top piece; while holding this in place, rest it on the bottom piece, and release the top piece.  The Link is made of stainless steel, and ball-bearings inside the top piece make it incredibly sturdy during heated gameplay.

    Space-Saver & Swift Customization

    Let's face it: traveling with a joystick isn't easy. For those with who travel to tournaments, you're aware of the looks and occasional spot check by airport security because you can't place your joystick in a typical messenger or book bag. The Link is ideal for the casual players looking to save some space, and for traveling tournament players who need to cram as much into their bags as possible.

    For those who like to share their joystick with fellow players, you no longer have to worry if your friend wants to use their favorite battop or balltop.  It's very easy to attach their link attachment to your joystick, or to carry around a spare balltop or battop for them to use.

    Finally, The Link also features a hollow shaft.  This feature makes this joystick accessory a fine choice for LED balltop projects!

    What's Included

    You'll receive the following items with your purchase:

    • LS-32 Link base and shaft
    • Hex key for install
    • LS-32 replacement e-clip
    • Phreakmods Link sticker (while supplies last)


    Positive Reviews

    The Link - in Sanwa JLF form - has already received favorable reviews and news from several sites, including Shoryuken.com.  Check out these sites for additional photos, video coverage and player reviews of The Link.  The LS-32 form is likely to receive the same positive feedback, as it is built upon the same design:

    Important

    Please lubricate your LS-32 Link prior to use.  Seimitsu LS-32 Joystick is not included with purchase.  Seimitsu LS-32 shaft and dustwasher sets are incompatible with the LS-32 Link.

    Greasing the LS-32 Link for Optimal Results

    1. Remove the Link and wipe the base clean
    2. Take a small bit of the FA.DAB .20 Ounce Shin-Etsu Silicone Grease on your finger tip and spin the link base to apply it in a thin coat (from underneath the tapered head down to the e-clip), it's easiest to hold the tip of the base between your other hand's fingers and just spin it. You only need a thin coat, just enough to basically make the piece look "wet."
    3. Re-assemble, making sure there's also a thin layer of grease on the pivot bushing as well for good upkeep measure. 

    Phreakmods is providing us with a helpful video to illustrate the procedure.  Stay tuned.

    Dustwasher compatibility 

    The outside diameter of the LS-32 Link is 11.67mm, or .459 inches.  The wider base makes it incompatible with Seimitsu dustwashers.  Sanwa JLF-CD dustwashers are compatible.  If you choose to get a custom dustwasher made for the LS-32 Link, make sure that the inside diameter is at least 12mm or .472 inches.  The LS-Link is incompatible with existing joystick shaft covers.

    Spacing in Shaft When Connected

    When connecting the LS-32 Link's upper and lower pieces, you may notice a very slight space when attempting to lower the upper piece into the buttom pieces.  Please note that the space is normal, as the upper piece is accomodating the lower piece snugly.  There is no affect on its functionality.  The photo diagram at right - taken by SRK's FreedomGundam - shows how the pieces appear when disconnected (top), and later connected (bottom).  You can view this diagram in the product photo gallery.

    Yes, that's normal operation for now. The collar won't go "all" the way down, it will stop a mm or two short. It shouldn't ever come off while playing though. Future iterations will more than likely change that and it will go down further.. for now it should operate just fine even though it doesn't not.

    Full excerpt and details are available in the official JLF/LS-32 Link forum thread on shoryuken.com.

    1. Really great!! but need extra purchases before using

      speaking from experience you need to buy a sanwa dust cover and a seimitsu flat mount!!
      if you use an S mount the stick would protrude higher than usual

      fightstick i use are madcatz te2 and fight stick pro for ps3
