    Found this review. Looks pretty good and I like that it's thinner than the default battop. Where did you find the Sanwa version? I don't see it on their site.

    He mention that he needs to take better pictures before posting on EBay. But He did send that last one.

    I ordered a Sanwa one since my older metal battop has a few dents in it. When I get it, I'll take a few photos of it next to the Toggleme Aluminum Battop and the regular Sanwa one. All blue if y'all want to see the difference in shades.

    I got a Blue Sanwa as well. I want to check the weight difference of it.

    Will you consider making a LS-58 compatible shaft? I'd be interested in one, and the LS-58 is one of the newer, more popular Seimitsu sticks, so I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd buy one.

    Possibly, its looks really similar but i would have to buy one first to test it out. Or have someone that has both to see if they are compatible. For all i know they already fit:)

    If they fit the LS-58, I'd order one for sure.

    Please look into that. Not everyone is all about Sanwa :P

    I have both and the shafts aren't the same. Here is a picture for you.

    Unfortunately, as you can see, there would be no way to fit the actuator and spring washer onto the JLF shaft, and the JLF shaft wouldn't be able to fit into the pivot

    I'm not currently using my LS-58 because the case I want to put it in isn't done yet, I could send you the shaft if that would help you get one and get us some Dragon Shafts fit for the LS-58. The good news is, the shaft would also fit the LS-56 which is another popular stick, and POSSIBLY the LS-33 though I do not have one or a way to test though the shaft's look similar enough.

    If I sent you my shaft, what kind of turn around would we be looking at?

    P.S. How come the Sanwa versions don't have shiny shafts? Is it possible to have it anodized down to the pivot as well?

    P.P.S.S. (or whatever) You know, these would look really, really bad ass in a black nickel color. Check it! If you had a black nickel LS-56 stick, I'd buy it in a heart beat.

    It looks like the LS-58 has a brass adapter on it, mm, i would need to know what type of thread it has. If you want i can get these back to you in a day plus shipping time to make a prototype and i will hook you up with a set of your choice, sure. My bat handle uses a different thread 1/4 20 because i sell aluminum ball tops as well that come with this thread to fit but i think it would be easy to make them for the LS. I think it might be better if you could send me the whole assembly? Or at least the shaft and sleeve for sure.

    How about Korean Stick? I think some folks would like that as well.

    And i will return it the same day with a custom bat handle for you for sure.

    The brass adapter is the Sanwa bat top adapter. They're hard to get off so I just took the picture with it still on. I'll take it off before I send it. It uses the same threads as the JLF, when the adapter isn't on. I'll try to get it out today or tomorrow.

    What is this Korean stick you speak of? If its popular, sure i'll retro fit the Dragon to it.

    Hi Joe. Glad to see you found your way over here. There ought to be plenty of sales from our little group. I imagine it will predominantly be Sanwa orders.

    Ah, I think you should stay with Happ Competition and Sanwa JLF, I fear anything else isn't played enough, but maybe I am wrong. You should include aluminium balltop on Competition shaft.
    Shame that the battop is a little bit more narrow :( , I would order one for my Competition stick, with the same diameters :( .
    Nice project and amazing look of the battops anyway !

    Yeah I don't know how expensive it is for him to make our crazy one-offs. The JLF probably is your best bet for profitability.

    These really do look nice. My only suggestion is, that if these turn up a good profit, to try and widen the color choice; I'd kill for a green or yellow battop.

    Are they all in 1 piece or do the battops/balltops screw on to the shaft? It would be great if you can use the standard sanwa thread. Here's the sanwa battop with screw thread adapter http://www.focusattack.com/sanwa-lb-30-n-s-battop-black/
    and heres the adapter just by itself http://www.focusattack.com/sanwa-lb-30-n-s-battop-adapter/

    Ok awesome. Shouldn't take me but a couple hour's to whip one up. As far as the Nickel color that would need anodizing and thats something i would need a large order for. Like 100 pieces but i might be able to find a smoked powder coat.
    ·
  • MoonchildeMoonchilde Tech Talk Demi-God Joined: Posts: 3,627 ✭✭✭✭✭
    A smoked powder coat would be fine. I'm sure a lot of people would dig that, considering the popularity of Sanwa and Seimitsu smoke buttons.

    No the dragon stick wont work on the that shaft, it uses it own thread and shaft...for now:) I do plan on making them interchangeable but i have to coordinate it with ball top's i make as well. Not sure if i should mix the two yet.

    I think you really should so at least people have options and if you want to leave the threads the same on the bat you can make an adaptor for the threads for all kinda of sticks, and of course charge a small 5.00 amount per each one.
