Joystick for SF2 - Advice needed
« on: September 07, 2017, 11:21:58 pm »
I'm down to these 2 options, has anyone had experience with either?

https://www.arcadeworlduk.com/products/Sanwa-JLW-UM-8-Bat-Top-Joystick.html

https://www.arcadeworlduk.com/products/il-eurostyle-joystick-with-cherry-microswitches.html

Might give the IL ones a try. This is for a dedicated Street Fighter Cabinet, metal control panel

Looking for accurate short-medium throw sticks with bat tops.

Thanks  :)

I have the sanwa and with that restricter plate being square and not circle I have trouble hitting some diagonals. You can bend the micro switch a bit to help with that. Throw is great I have the ultimarc version. It's the same. I put back in my happ comps 8 way I feel for fighting games I like them a bit more. You just sacrifice the 4/8 way function.

I would go for a Sanwa JLF with octagonal gate for a dedicated fighter cab personally.

This!

paradise arcade modded sanwa jlf. Sooooo wicked fast. You will never even hit the restrictor to do specials. :notworthy:

Before that I used only happs comps and the switch is a big difference in speed
They treated me like an animal and that's what I became.
