    On the topic of bat tops, if theres a way the myoungshin bat top can be reproduced (non matte) but in different colors, (and normal 6mm threading) i think it will be cool for those used to the stock myoungshins but want different aesthetics.

    sanwa bat tops are nice, but i personally dont like the matte feel of it. it doesnt feel "fanta" for me...

    I for one would love to see the return of the red myoungshin/taeyoung bat top :)

    Gotta second this. Return of the red shaft is a must. I think red, blue (like the dark blue on the grommet or sanwa button), yellow, white and (I suppose) green would be great. Tried to order a red one way back right when Laugh ran out of them.

    EDIT: Also

    Is there anyone that can get me a wooden ist make stick case?

    http://istmall.co.kr/shop/goods/goods_view.php?goodsno=9992175&category=013

    Like the aesthetics of it and I'd love to have a wooden case with 30mm native button holes.

    I got mine from their global Gmarket store.

    EDIT: Kaze lever is out of production because he is working on version 3. Looks like the shaft will be taller, will use a softer rubber grommet and will be adjusted to make dashes easier.

    At the risk of sounding retarded.....Is there an option for case only? The price for the whole stick is reasonable enough but I really can't tell exactly what I'm looking at. I can deduce that a PS3 model would be cheaper than a PS4 but it doesn't go much further. I'm still investigating.

    You mean this?

    Just wanted to say thanks for everyones help and advice.

    I finally got a hold of IST, and now they are going to send me the correct parts... Possibly just the 309 actuators, which is the only thing thats different between the 303MJ and 309MJ tested it myself.

    Also, @wazwuz I got my email for my Golden Fanta! I cant wait to receive it!!! I got my red Bat top yesterday and got SUPER excited!

    There is also the switches difference. Normally, the 309MJ had Gersung switches while the 303MJ has a set from Panasonic. I do know that Crown added Panasonic switches to the 309 when there was no stock for Gersungs. Glad they helped and hope to all those who are getting the levers enjoy em.

    Still waiting for my email... :)

    I hope they just send me actuators... Every single one of these 303MJs they sent me had a set of Panasonics and White levers. Theyre beautiful, but that actuator makes all the difference. I tried flipping over the actuators since the fattest part of them have the same diameter, but the taper on the opposite end made it feel notchy, not smooth and cushioned like the 309 actuator. Its clearly made of a different material.

    Btw, I got contacted by Paradise Arcade shop, they also interested to bring Golden Fanta to US market.

    So to expand the compatibility of this Golden Fanta, which Fanta version is most preferable for Sanwa mounting stick? and what is the difference between 309MJ Vs 303MJ? I will try to get one for R&D

    @Call2Arms @phantomnaut let me know if this Golden Fanta mod can fit into 309, if not then what adjustment I should make.

    I don't recall if there's a Fanta stick that can be mounted directly to the Sanwa mounts that are found in all of the current consumer fight sticks that are available (unless we count the IST FLF). Also, I think someone mentioned about using the Kowal Universal Plate on the Fanta stick but I dunno if they modified the neck gate or enlarged the opening of the lever hole. Maybe this weekend I can experiment with using the chopped collar of the 309mj on the Fanta and see how that works out.

    I see 309 plate already have sanwa mounting holes, is the short/chopped collar on 309 doesn't help? if we still need to drill for bigger holes, I would go for full collared Fanta + kowal plate

    @wazwuz If I understand your question correctly, there is no favorable collared Fanta stick for a japanese mounting bracket since all the popular japanese style sticks available only have a hole that is around 24mm. Heavy modification needs to be done for it.

    The only thing that I can see you doing for a new mod for the japanese mounted korean sticks would be a new revision for the Fanta Upgrade Kit. I noticed some flaws in the 303/309 design that could be improved on, and it could help with the sales of a new revision.

    The things that I did to modify the 303FK series to work properly were extensive, but I found the solutions to actually have the precision of the Fanta would be an actuator that is the same as the 309 or fatter, maybe have a set of silicon crown tension grommets, a matsushita/panasonic switch set, and especially for crowns, a switch support. These things suffer from pretty bad corner inconsistencies so maybe that could tighten them up and make them uniform as possible. It could be a good solution for people who own 303FK or 303ST sticks that dont want to spend so much for an import of a 309MJ (If you have FA sell them)

    The difference between the 303MJ and 309MJ is just the new and improved actuators. They both have the 307 collar, and the 303 bottom portion, but the 309 got an improved actuator made of a softer material and it is a cylinder same diameter from top to bottom. Not a tapered actuator from the previous 303 series. The result was a very comfortable and consistent japanese mount Korean stick. Still doesnt feel like a Fanta, but it was a vast improvement on precision and actually feels comfortable to use. It is a good Korean stick for its own reasons.

    @wazwuz To answer your other question about the chopped collar. It actually does make a difference, it gave the Crown sticks a wider range of motion to hit all their directions, and with the help of their new actuator, when it hits the collar, its not so abrupt in my opinion. If you are trying to see if we can put a real fanta in a japanese stick without modification... I have a crazy idea. But I dont know if the holes on all japanese style sticks are the same size and it would be too big of a project. lol

    thank you for the explanation. for crown Fanta without collar, I still have the crown round grommets Mold and I can provide Silicone grommet in various tension. and some actuator of course :). But since it has no collar, shaft variation won't be needed, CMIIW.
    So, 309MJ is superior than 303MJ? then on sanwa mounting arcade stick, let's say TE1? can we install it? or we still have to make bigger holes for the short collar so it can work properly?
    also is the grommet of 309MJ model is like myungshin grommet (square)?

    @wazwuz There's no need to modify the fight stick case (aka drill a 35mm hole) if you install the 309mj. The collar used in the 309mj is tall enough to have an experience similar to the Fanta sticks but short enough to fit the stick under the fight stick panel.

    2016101800002.png

    309mj mounted in my TE2+ (before I mounted a Fanta with custom K-stick compatible panel from Jasen's Customs)

    Also, the 309mj still use the round grommets. The stock silicone grommet on the 309mj is softer but thicker. However, when I bought it from Makestick in December of last year I bought the 60a grommet since I prefer something a little bit firmer.

    The 309mj and 303mj are the same minus their actuator, I can get some measurements if you'd like. Both can be installed in most Japanese cases that accept a Sanwa JLF, I say most because I've only installed them in my old hrap3. They use the normal circular crown silicon grommets with a lighter 25shore tension. I could see a smaller diameter shaft making them feel closer to a normal fanta, but personally I like the 309mj as is. I find corner inputs really consistent on these sticks, I believe it's because of the smaller radius collar.

    Great, please measure the actuator diameter when you have time. Thank you.

    Wow, 25shore silicone will be super loose. IMO the best way optimize fanta is using the hardest grommet that your hand can bear. Harder gormmet will give faster neutral which is fanta famous for.

    IMO since the collar is shorter, they have to compensate it using smaller collar diameter, or biger shaft, so the joystick throw remain the same.

    In my experience, actuator is the most responsible part to make the diagonal input easier (more sensitive). You can try this using Golden Fanta 17.5mm actuator, but the other hand, it makes cardinal input become super sensitive also. The microswitches also responsible for this, the more sensitive the microswitch, it will make corner input easier.

    Btw, right now I doing some test on omron v152 1c25 switches using cones actuator and sky blue grommet. It feels smooth, barely notice the feel of the microswitch click.

    @DJ-Blitz That new actuator made all the difference for it. I remember flipping my actuator around just to have the damn thing hit the corners somewhat. Now that its fatter, and it doesnt have the taper and that weird choke at the top of the actuator, it extends its reach and made it consistent. they should have used that design since day one. LOL

    The way the Fujin is fastened on there is hard to unscrew without cracking it....you can maybe use a jlf shaft with a sanwa bat top in its place but I'm not sure....

    @Deyhoob I think if you wait a few months I think Paradise Arcade Store will stock the Golden Fanta Mod. That should include multiple diameter of shafts. This is designed to fit Sanwa LB-30-N bat-tops but not the clear LB-30-N-CW version. Both you can find from paradise arcade.
  • rbuniaorbuniao Joined: Posts: 144
    @ProgressiveBalance So the shafts in the golden fanta mod only accept battops with 10mm threading?

    Sent my info to you as well @wazwuz

    Also quick question if we use a Sanwa bat top will we need the adapter or can we just screw it on the shaft without it? I know the clear one won't need an adapter but the others do.

    it will need adapter. so you could put clear sanwa battop or even balltop, but i'm not sure it will have the correct height.

    The golden fanta shafts have 6mm threading,

    You could use any bat or ball top you want but the shafts height is adjusted to fit the Sanwa LB-30-N. It should sit higher if you use another bat-top or ball-top. @rbuniao Also the Sanwa LB-30-N comes with the adapter.

    @wazwuz so what are the best or most sensitive switches to use on the Golden Fanta? Also are the Omron V152 1C25 from an arcade stick?

    82prhjf.jpg


    I find omron V102 1A4 (japan) is very light and sensitive microswitch I have ever find, and it is very hard to find. I bougt it (couple years a go) at old electronic shop (only 1pcs), and they have none left in stock.

    then V152 1C25 (japan) I also bought it at the same old electronic shop (only 1pcs). it have some resistance but not as hard as Panasonic switch. yet it is also sensitive.
    last week, I try to order this model via online, then I got "made in Indonesia" version, I find Indonesia version is slightly less sensitive as Japan version. but not too much, I can barely notice the difference. I find it par to panasonic switch sensitivity but with less resistance and it feels different, maybe it have something to do with the different placement of the switch actuator point.

    left is Matsushita/Panasonic. right is Omron
    XsrBUCp.jpg

    last is V152 1A5 Indonesia version. this is the least sensitive microswitch that I try. and the resistance is same with 1C25. this work best to compensate 17.5mm golden fanta actuator.

    so. here is what I find, less sensitive switch will make the diagonal input window narrower. and we can compensate big actuator that being too sensitive using less sensitive switch.
    and doing wavedash is easier using small window diagonal input. (now this become make sense why green lever is so good for playing mishimas).
    using sensitive lever will makes more input error on doing wavedash (in my case, double input on diagonal)

    for me, right now I am comfortable using V152 1C25 Indonesia + cones actuator. I can do wavedash with less error (sometimes got double input on corner) and yet still easy to hit diagonals.



    @DJ-Blitz thank you so much for the sketch

    @wazwuz I heard that the Seimitsu LS-300 will have levered Omron ditches that make the stick feel like a JLF. Maybe we could harvest those from the joystick when it releases soon and try them in a Fanta.

    @ProgressiveBalance They actually have them on sale right now.

    Not sure if I want to buy that stick just to swap out the switches. Hmmm......

    @rbuniao Yeah I was looking at the 5 Pin version with soldered switches, my bad, its pre-order. I would buy it just for the switches because I like to Frankenstein parts. It will also mean finally buying a Seimitsu joystick so for me personally its two birds with one stone. My plan was to take an LS-38-SC and add LS-300 switches. More tension, more sensitivity and a nice shaft cover. If I can get my hands on the Golden Fanta when it releases officially, I might try the switches out with that. I heard they feel like the JLF, my favorite joystick so...

    @wazwuz https://arcadeshock.com/collections/frontpage/products/seimitsu-ls-300-joystick-pre-order These switches might work well but they are propitiatory Seimitsu/Omron switches, meaning you have to buy the whole stick itself for the switches. I do suggest trying out these Omrons as well to add help with your build.

    I did Notice that tracing number of this package haven't updated yet. I have call service center about this. I will go to Post office this weekend to investigate about this issue.

    UPDATE:
    I have visit Post Office today regarding this Issue. So, there was special condition that makes our package being delayed. A week ago King Salman (Saudi Arabia) visiting my country, and he bring so much stuff + 1500 Royal members (even he bring his own escalators and cars) that makes shipping overload. and when he back, he + 1500 royal members also bring so much souvenir.
    Apparently it is not just us, there were many complaints in the post office about this delayed shipping.

    I'm apologize to all of you guys because not aware about this. Trust me, this issue makes me upset too. If only there were no issue, you will be receiving your package this weekend and can start reviewing it.
    I will keep monitoring this shipment. thank you for your patience.

    here is the news

    this the type of stuff you can't make up lol
    on other note

    JLFsanwa, crown, nor myoungshin black/green shaft fits into
    FujjinV2 grommet center piece, it is too thin/tight. Thus
    you would have to change grommet and shaft to alter the lever,
    reversing the mod you paid for. Making it a myoungshin with a stability plate aka a plain airbag.
    I don't have the math cause I don't care, just don't do it.

    I have a Fujin v 2 and I didn't have an issue with using a Fanta bat top instead of clear one though it was a bit snug but I haven't tried a jlf shaft either

    Great, finally good news about the package. Btw, I send this package one day latter on march 10 at local/branch post office. But it can manage comes firts.
    The other packages I was sending directlly to the head post office (for faster process, because they have custom inside, where they check the package and can release the package instantly .Maybe the head post office get special instruction to hold their packages, and this branch post office somehow manage to slip some package.


    Update
    I try to contact post office by phone today. The officer said that the package is handled by DHL. And they said usually DHL update the tracking log after the package delivered. This makes nonsense, why would we have tracking number if we can't track it.
    So please let me know if any of you have received the package.

    I've been using the 16mm shaft extenders on my ls-56, and I like my Fanta a lot, but I would just like to make the shaft a tad bit longer. Is there a longer shaft I could purchase? Or are there shaft extenders available for the Fanta as well?

    @Clandestine a JLF shaft will work with the Myoungshin Fanta, you could then add a JLF shaft extender plus a battop or balltop. I don't recommend doing this, but it is a possible option.
    Another option is using one of PAS longer JLF shafts.

    Cool, I didn't know a JLF shaft would work. Why would this not be recommended though? As long as the actuator fits, then it should feel the same, right?

    I would worry about a shaft extender getting loose. It might be totally fine, haven't tried it myself.

    Shaft extender doesn't "get" loose unless it wasn't tight to begin with

    Never had any problem with a shaft extender getting loose. Ive actually had to take a pair of pliers to them a couple times to remove them because you cant grip them as well as the ball and bat tops.

    Me too, If I knew this will happend, I would rather spend my own money and send it with DHL. I check tracking every couple hours and hope there was some update. I blame no one, shit happend sometimes.

    The standart package is consist of 3 grommets (green darkblue red), 3 actuators ( 14,5 15,5 and 17,5 mm) and 3 shaft (7 8 and 10 mm). But I give a bonus part in every package until I have none left in stock. And there are some add on parts that ordered by participants individually.
    Since I also don't have stock left for my own (only the one that installed on my stick), I can't do any experiment by doing more combination on golden fanta setup.

    Awesome, video review will be more informative fo us.

    UPDATE
    Good news, Finally we start getting update on tracking. hope all the package will be arrived on next week before weekend.

    @wazwuz There's no need to modify the fight stick case (aka drill a 35mm hole) if you install the 309mj. The collar used in the 309mj is tall enough to have an experience similar to the Fanta sticks but short enough to fit the stick under the fight stick panel.

    309mj mounted in my TE2+ (before I mounted a Fanta with custom K-stick compatible panel from Jasen's Customs)

    Also, the 309mj still use the round grommets. The stock silicone grommet on the 309mj is softer but thicker. However, when I bought it from Makestick in December of last year I bought the 60a grommet since I prefer something a little bit firmer.

    Sorry, a bit off-topic, but how did your order from Makestick go? They seem pretty dodgy. I ordered from them a few days ago but I haven't received a confirmation email or anything, and payment still seems to be processing. All of my emails haven't been responded to either. Anyone else have any experience with them? A lot of people here seem to have successfully bought from them, but how does the process usually go?
