    Hoops-Thanks!

    Keep your eyes on the site guys, we are going to be revamping it and adding many new items! Thank you again for all the support.

    If anyone tries the Zippy LS-32 knockoffs, please post your thoughts.

    MauiWowie, THANKS!

    RoboKrikit, they aren't the same, If the LS-32's are a Porsche the Zippyy's are a nice Toyota. They aren't bad, but the feel is not quite the LS-32. So why both? Well for classics the Zippys are really nice, good feel, nice 4 way action and about 1/2 the cost of the Seimitsu. Both Toyotas and Porsches have their place, it's just what you are looking for, and it's all about avoiding the Yugo's :)

    I did a mod on your Zippy 20gm arcade pushbutton micro switch's and am using them for my JLF arcade stick. There was a ton of play in them so I took 3 tiny squares of electrical tape and stacked them on the bottom side of the switches that stick out and walla! No play. Using them in my JLF gets rid of almost all the noise. It's so smooth that I can't even tell they're in there sometimes. This, combined with an LS-33 spring gives me a floating sensation in the stick. I have VERY weak hands so this helps a lot! I absolutely LOVE those 20gm Zippy's. The mod has worked for about a month now and after inspecting the switch's today, I see almost no wear on the tape. But I replaced the tape anyway. By the way, Have you heard of the 10gm Tonelock micro switches? Those are even lighter than the Zippy's. You should look them up. Pelican used to use a crappy kind in their older PS2 version of their universal sticks and those had to be near over 100gm's of force or harder. I'll be using your Zippy's to replace all my Happ button switches. Can't wait to try them out when I can order some more! I've made 2 orders with you and was happy with both. Thanks for the great service and fast shipping!

    Jebitron, thanks for the props, not sure where you are talking about the play, shoot me a picture by email.

    If you want something really nice on the Happ buttons, they aren't cheap, but check out the leaf switches on the site, super low resistance to activate! http://www.paradisearcadeshop.com/en/36-rollie-leaf-switch-for-pushbutton.html

    I have to post things to sell them... shootz :)
    I wanted to make sure Focusattack had them in hand before we put them up, I'll contact Jaleel today and see what the scoop is. We are pretty stoked about them, now if we only knew someone who built controllers that could add an extra set of pins for the flash :)

    When I get around to ordering those Zippy's for my happ buttons or if I build another custom JLF sooner, I'll show you what I mean. It's actually not that much play at all. I'm just a bit perfection happy. lol

    While on the subject regarding the Zippy LS-32 knockoffs, Do they have the same "Pivot" problems as the Semitsu LS-32s?

    Now come on guys, can you use the proper spelling of Zippyy :) Just like my name, Bryan, always having the "Y" left off...

    I'm just messing around, on a serious note, I truly feel that joysticks are like speakers. They are all about personal preference, which is tough because with mail order it's hard to just "test" something out. However, the Zippyy joysticks are only about 13 and change to ship without ball tops. If you order buttons with them, we should be able to get it all in a flat rate shipping envelope. If it's for a one off thing, then it might not be worth it, but if you are looking for a less expensive alternative that you'll be using a few times, I would suggest you just give it a try.

    Glad you enjoyed, we like to say there is "Aloha" in every box! It can also be used as a bribe for the significant other if you have someone you need to justify buying parts too... "Honey, look, I ordered from here because they send chocolate for you!"

    Happy customer bump!!! :D
    Just placed another order with ParadiseArcade. Bryan and Susan are super nice, helpful, and great at answering questions. You always feel warm and fuzzy after placing an order cause of the whole family run vibe, all the Hawaiian talk, and the cherry on top... they give you yummy chocolate with your order. They also have hands down the largest inventory of ball tops, including their own in house ones only they have, and also their import line up which is my fav. Great price, and seamless. I replaced all my Seimitsu bubble ball tops with their import ball tops cause seamless is where it is at. They also have hands down the best size options. From 45mm all the way down to 30mm!!! I personally heart their 45mm import bubble tops and my kung fu 'eagle claw' grip can't get enough of them! They also have many products that you can only find at their site. If you haven't already, check em out!! ;)

    Hey braddah!...old school Makakilo Boy here. :)

    Do you still have the pearl tops that you mentioned in the OP? I scanned your site for them and I came up empty. If so, could you show a pic with it lit up with a yellow LED? Also, are your led sticks JLF-8Y's? If not, are they the same form factor? Trying to get my parts together for a Kraylix I ordered...thanks!

    Hi,

    I see that Paradise Shop stocks a lot of the Seimitsu hardware that I like to buy.
    Questions --
    1) Are you going to carry the new LS-58-01 joystick? Both versions -- clear and solid shaft?
    2) I don't see Seimitsu SS Mounting plates available as individual parts to buy on your site. Unfortunately, Seimitsu has this habit of making LS-40's with a mounting plate that isn't useful for Mad Catz TE's and the Hori HRAP's. Would you carry SS Mounting plates or is that something to special order or buy elsewhere?
    3) Any plans for Paradise Shop to carry the new clear (24mm and 30mm) Sanwa pushbuttons?

    4) How much could an order of say two joysticks (LS-40-01's) and 6-12 pushbuttons (Skeleton PS-14-K's) run shipping wise to the Midwest US? I'm in the Columbus area of Ohio. I'll give a generic zip code since I don't want to give out my address zip in public. The test zip (valid, for OSU) is 43210.

    Thanks in advance for answers and advice!

    You'll get an email notification when your items are shipped. Or at least for me I did.

    Anyway, how long does it take something to be shipped from Hawaii to Utah? My order was shipped on 11/2 and it's been about 5 business days from that and the USPS tracking still at "Electronic Shipping Notification Received". It doesn't give me any Estimate delivery date at all. I wish you guys use UPS. USPS sucks with tracking info.

    If you get clear ones in I would def buy one! And if you could get a red one I would even pay extra for it! I want to switch to 45mm balltops on all my sticks and have a red themed resident evil stick that I would kill to have a red 45mm bubbletop on.

    Please don't make me ugly up my stick with a clear or blue bubbletop. = [ hahah

    Great thread!

    I stumbled into Paradise from Google Searching for screw in type buttons, and I really liked the looks of the dark blue Paradise balltop. So my first stick and button order ever goes through them.

    I'm eagerly awaiting arrival of my parts, then I go on to prototyping and building my first hardwood stick!

    Wow, I came across this store via a search for JLWs, as this is the only active store that still carries them. Then as I was about to buy a JLW, I curiously clicked around the site until I found the LS-32 upgrade kit. Lighter microswitches that dramatically reduce the clicking sound, it's like my dream mod! That sound annoys me to no end...So I had to pick that up :) plus a 15g sounds interesting, I'm currently using a Taeyoung Fanta, so this will be quite different!

    the Emerald balltop looks too good to pass up, so I will get that too. Awesome store! great inventory.



    pretty neat if I do say so myself :)

    Hey, I just got a LS-40-01 from here. Really great service and selection so far! Also, my Mom lives in Kona. The macadamia kisses are a nice bonus!

    I originally got the joystick to mod a Hori EX2 case, but it doesn't fit unfortunately, even if I take the mounting off. Would you or anyone else know if I could make it fit with a different mounting plate, perhaps? Also, if I get it fitted, is the LS-40-01 a common ground PCB? I definitely don't want to return it because it's for sure the stick I want to use.

    I also wanted a tighter spring so I got both a Sanwa JLW and Seimitsu LS56 spring but neither of them fit without being too tight. Is there perhaps an alternate tighter spring replacement for the LS-40-01 that would work, or a workaround to get one of the previously mentioned springs to fit? No big if not, just wondering.

    Perhaps I should just scrap the EX2 altogether and just use it as a backup stick? I need to wait for a couple months or so before I can purchase a new case though.

    Right now my EX2 has some cherry switches and Sanwa buttons in it, so it's a decent play until I can find something that works.

    Edit: Nvm, just got an HRAP shell for a nice price right here on SRK! Just gotta sit and wait now. This EX2 case has been such the pain, lol.
