The 2lb tension spring can be used as a replacement for the existing spring found in the Sanwa JLF series of Joysticks. Modding your Sanwa JLF joystick with this 2lb tension spring, will give you up to 1.1lb more force, compared to the original spring. This results in a stiffer joystick, which is favored among some players who do not like the loose feel of the JLF series of joysticks.

Upgraded spring to the Arcade1Up Xmen vs Street Fighter cabinet

5 stars because I don't doubt this is a true 2lb tension spring. However, the 2lb tension spring provided no improvement to either the stock Arcade1up XMvSF stock stick or the Sanwa JLF. I can't speak to other cabinets.

Upgraded buttons to the Arcade1Up Xmen vs Street Fighter cabinet

Upgraded buttons to the Arcade1Up Xmen vs Street Fighter cabinet. Stock buttons are mushy and loose. These new buttons provide tension and "click" feedback. I wanted to keep the same color scheme and I perceive no difference between them side by side. The actual install is very easy. The bores do not require widening so no tools needed. They fit slightly loose but tighten nicely.

In practice the extra tension made executing moves a bit difficult for me. I played a couple hundred matches with the stock buttons so my fingers need re-training. I'm getting used to it.

tension spring feel

with this installed the joystick is not as loose but it doesn't make it stiff.
