4lb Sanwa JLF Tension Spring for Arcade Joystick

Original price $1.49 - Original price $1.49
Original price
$1.49 - $1.49
Current price $1.49

The 4lb 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 4lb tension spring, will give you up to 3.2lb 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.

Excellent for Ms Pac Man Partycade

Really gives it that precise feel and snap to my Ms. Pac Man Partycade.

Much better than the stock Sanwa spring which is much looser.

Does not work for Arcade1up Mortal Kombat Costco Version

These springs are larger than what the Costco version of Arcade1Up Mortal Kombat arcades use. Very disappointed with the purchase

These are not sold or designed for stock arcade1up joysticks. These are sold to fit a JLF Sanwa joystick.

Perfect feel

Stock springs are very light return is sketchy. However, these four pound springs are perfect for Sanwa sticks feels like original arcade! Upgrade do it now!

Worth it.

Replaced my stock weak baby springs with these. They feel great especially if you get the shaft extensions. The shipping was more than the item.

Did not fit

I think there are so many variables that I may have ordered the wrong springs. I used the online tools, but probably there is still some variability. The spring diameter was simply too large to fit into the nylon cup on the stick. These are so inexpensive that it isn't worth the effort to try to return or get a replacement - opted to just order Sanwa controllers. Those, however are amazing and pretty easy to replace.
