    Yeah, I haven't seen anyone post about that in months. I would have thought we would have heard more information about it. Didn't @kodee vu use the mod at combo breaker?

    I think I may saw his setup at combo breaker. I also used my golden fanta mod the whole weekend but I'm not at the same league (skill wise) as @kodee vu . Though, I did show the folks at Paradise Arcade the Golden Fanta Mod and they seemed impressed.

    The guy who is developing the Golden fanta told me he's working on getting FocusAttack to carry the mod for USA release. No eta on when that will be though.

    Thanks for the information guys. It sounds like the helpme lever would be better for me then because of the slightly higher tension.

    I don't understand. I was about to purchase a Fujin V2 until I found out it was out of stock on makestick.com. Without Rohan how do we know when its back in stock and if it ever will be back in stock? But more inportantly, why do the older pictures of the stick all show the stick with the dust cover and the newer ones without? did they change the diameter of the shaft?

    Took a few pictures of the fujin v2 insides.
    The lever it self is very tight compared to a normal myoungshin or a airbag.

    So I've discovered that for me my Myoungshin Fanta is better for Tekken 7 than my Hitbox so I'm gonna stick with that. I can already do Korean backdashes on the 1P side fairly consistently. My Crown 309 HelpMe is supposed to deliver tomorrow so I can't wait to try that out. I modded the Fanta into my Hori RAP 4 Kai. That stick is so damn light. What's the best way to "weight down" a fight stick?

    Hello all, hope you can help out a noob here.

    I play a lot of 2d fighters and I'm more than happy with my RAP4 for those.

    But I'd like to get more into 3d fighters, just picked up Tekken 7, and I've always wanted to try a Korean arcade stick.

    Basically I'm ready to buy one, just don't know where to look. I'm not interested in modding, just wondering if there's an arcade stick out there that comes with a quality Korean stick built in.

    Guess I just don't know what I should be looking for. I did find this one though.

    http://www.etokki.com/Omni-Korean-Edition

    Any good? Any better recommendations?

    Thanks.

    The Omni might be the best stock stick out there

    Thanks. Yeah I also came across good reviews and looked into the parts, seems like a winner.

    Just ordered mine. :D

    You can use adhesive wheel weights if you want it to look nice and clean inside. Otherwise anything else works like duct tape and rolls of pennies.

    I've heard of using play dough. I know it's weird but I heard it works. And if you think about it, it should work really well for weights as you can put it anywhere and in any position. They are actually quite heavy too if you buy 2 or more. Watch this,

    So my Crown 309 HelpMe came in today. Wow! That's all I can say. It's even better than the Fanta stick. Execution is amazing on that thing. I'm glad I decided to buy it as it's the best Korean stick I've ever tried. I highly recommend it to anyone on the fence. L8r!

    How do the rest of you guys think about the HelpMe? Do you also think that the 309 HelpMe is better than the Fanta?

    Also, ever notice how the etokki omni has ABXY labeling around the buttons, yet the stick only works on the ps4? It used tobe duel modded if i remember correctly.

    It feels like a fanta but the edges (diagonals they call it?) feel better than a fanta, almost like a japanese stick. The diagonals on my fanta feel spongy and hard to interpret. Focus attack still has the small collar version on their site if you have a japanese mount case. Here's a link to a thread I opened trying to help anyone thinking of modding their japanese mount case to fit a Korean stick. It's rough but I hope it can help someone out there who is thinking to attempt the mod:

    So I just put a crown 309 in my Madcatz TE2+ because my 307 hasn't been performing well since T7 came out. So I have been trying 2 backdash in T7 and I am having serious problems with it. Truthfully T7 movement has been giving me issues since I started which I never had on Tag2 so it may well just b the movement of the game throwing me off but if not I think my crown might b messed up. Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem?

    Take it apart and resamable it to see does it fix the problem

    What do you mean when you say the diagonals are better? Is there more room to hit? Are the micro switches making it easier?

    Yeah I think it may be the microswitches. They take more force to activate it feels like so you can feel them better. I like how that feels I guess.

    Some of us are still using it from what I have seen. Still using mine and I like a couple of combinations. Would love to show it in video form but got some stuff on queue when it comes to content.

    As oodk said, try reassembling it if there is something weird in the hardware. Maybe there are some nuanced changes in T7's movement where maybe you might have some trouble. I have been sort of having that concern and I am just taking my time to get used to it.

    Is it the full collar version or the short collar? Not sure if your TE2 is modded or not. I had a 307 and it sucked for me. It was this stick: Crown CWL-307FJ-JMS-ST Joystick Clear Red . I didn't like that stick and it soured my opinion on Korean Crown sticks. But the collared 309 HelpMe is really awesome. I hope to get the chance to try out the short collared version, but I think that collar must add some stability or something to the stick that makes it perform better than the shorter version. Also I know the grommet in the long collar is 35 while the short is only 25 shore rating. Maybe consider modding your TE2 to fit the 35mm version. I posted a link in a post above and it's pretty easy to do. Or you could wait until Jasen Hicks of jasenscustoms.com gets back from deployment in the fall and order a TE2 Korean panel for the TE2. But yeah disassemble and clean it and I wish you the best of luck my friend. Take it easy!1

    I'm so sorry about the delay. my workshop is overload with orders, So I have to find time to make the golden parts. But the grommets is almost finished. While waiting for it, I have doing some testing to find the best parts to include for the next batch.
    So I have contact focus attack that the gromets is almost ready, and we can ship it to make it available to US market, but I haven't got any orders from them now.

    Then if there are still many from you interested in Golden Fanta. I will run the second batch.
    MOQ for each batch is 20 set. So I want to know, how many of you still want the Golden Fanta?

    Ok I figured it out it was a combination of me not being used to both movement in T7 and adjusting to the new 309. Thanks for the advice everyone

    @wazwuz, how much is the second batch going to cost, and what are the changes from the first to second batch? Will it include the shaft cover and plexiglass for the micro switches?

    Also, with the rise in popularity of the 309 HelpMe and the new infiltration lever, do you think you would ever make a Golden HelpMe or a Golden Infiltration Lever? I think that would be a great way to follow on if this is successful.

    Yes I have Dark Blue (55) 50pcs and Red (60) 50pcs in stock, but the shipping to US is 18USD/250gram.

    From what I have test and from beta tester feedback, next batch I will include:
    Actuators : 15.5mm ; 16mm ; and 16.5mm
    Shaft : 8mm ; 9mm ; 10mm
    Sil Grmt : Green 40, Blue 50, and Red 60
    Acrylic switch support (upon request only), you don't need this if using Airbag.

    Yes I was planing to get 309 Crown and Infiltration Crown, and learn how I can enhance the experience of that stick.

    This is going to be a noob question, but will these silicone grommets fit inside a myoungshin fanta stick? And where can I purchase these grommets? I would love 2 red grommets, and perhaps one blue

    Yeah, that 's why it's called the Golden "Fanta" mod. We're waiting to here from @wazwuz when/where we can all get it from.

    Received my sdb201 buttons today.
    Got to say I'm really like them better than seimitsus I usually use. I finished Tekken 7's story mode with them.
    Things to note. Screws are interchangeable between Seimitsu and these. The sdb201 screws have teeth for grip on mounting surface so if screws were available separately could be slight upgrade on Seimitsu screwin buttons.


    So I guess now I have an almost full Korean stick?

    I do not know if I said anything on this thread before or not but which Korean joystick is best to start with? I wanted to try one for years now and never got around to it and have a spare stick to experiment with. I would like a Fanta but do not think it will fit the model without serious modifications I do not fully understand how to implement. That said I will take any of them based on the best recommendations I can get as someone newer to modding and changing stuff.

    Can't go wrong with a Helpme lever it's good for beginners, I do feel like it doesn't have much potential for you to grow in the long run. The stick I like the most is Myoungshin Fanta but I would say it's for intermediate users since you need a lot of precision to use it, in my opinion this one has the highest potential once you master using it. The Kaze Lever would be my 2nd pick if you can even find one. The Airbag would be my third pick it's almost the same as the Kaze lever but isn't as stiff.

    I actually wanted to be a part of the first batch of Golden Fanta kits, but missed out. Would like to get in on the next batch. Did the Fanta kits come with the acrylic switch plate or was that a limited test?

    Golden Fanta Is in Production now. I only make about 10-20 sets, deepens on the time I got at my workshop. I will update when it is ready
