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.

Overpriced shipping and random tension

Some of the springs felt good, and some of the springs felt very consistency. Shipping to Canada is garbage...way too expensive....there should definitely be cheaper options...especially for little tiny springs that are shipped in a small bubble wrapped envelop.

Sanwa Joystick/ 4lb spring for Arcade1up

I haven't used them for fighter games, but the Sanwa sticks + 4lb spring are a MUST for games like Pac-Man, Ms Pac-man, Super Pac, Dig Dug, etc. I found the stock A1UP sticks to be cheap and clicky with dead zones-Sanwa's make it feel like an authentic experience. Highly recommend A++++ quality+ fast shipping!

Stick with stock 1up controls

Worthless. Springs won't sit flat and make your character slower and hesitant to back or jump away. Mortal Kombat arcade1up plays better with the springs and gates it comes with. Switched back to original spring and gates, but managed to break player 2 joystick trying to install springs and gates

This are manufactured and sold to fit a JLF sanwa which the A1U for sure does not come with so there is no surprise it did not function as it should as it does not fit it.
