Joystick movement is very smooth. NOTE: Mine came with the plug facing right. Simple fix to change it to the correct position.

Can't keep my hand off it!

I'm too old and too new to give any feedback on playability, but I like it better than what came in the Super Pac-Man PartyCade. Shipping was fast, and a much needed cable that i didn't order came included; because DIYretro knows what they're doing. Thanks a bunch!!! (I put the stock A1UP in a homemade laptop hybrid thingy, made form an old printer desk)

Upgraded joystick to the Arcade1up Xmen vs Street Fighter cabinet

I felt only two minor differences between this Sanwa and the stock joystick in the Arcade1up XMvSF cabinet: The "click" feedback and tension. Slightly better feedback. The tension in the stock stick has slightly MORE tension than the Sanwa. Even replacing with a 2lb spring made no difference to me. I'm probably a more aggressive player and put muscle into my wrist actions so maybe some subtleties are lost on me.

Sanwa joystick

I ordered a Sanwa joystick with wire harness and a blue transparent bat style handle and 4 pound spring for it. The joystick works great, especially with the 4 pound spring. Th only issue I had was everything came loose in a bag and my joystick handle smashed into something along the so it had a crack and a blemish on it. I'm not sending it back as it was only a $5 item but it was basically for looks and it doesn't look that good.

A step above the rest

Very satisfied with the action and stiffness of the joystick. A must have for enthusiasts. Joystick does make clicking sounds with movement (like others do). Other than that itโ€™s a must have for cabinets. Will purchase SANWA again
