    just got my golden crown kit for my 309mj.

    tried red grommet with the smallest shaft (8mm) and biggest actuator (16mm). it was a little too stiff but not terrible. switched out to the blue grommet, tension was great but i was banging into the collar way too much. switched the shaft to the middle (9mm) and it feels really good. i still hit the collar sometimes, but its only in the corners. i think i can adjust to it. the stiffer grommet does feel like a workout though. when i get the chance sometime over the weekend, ill try the green grommet and the biggest shaft.

    overall i am pretty impressed. thanks to wazwuz, I can't wait to get my golden fanta kit now ;)

    @wazwuz

    I picked up the Golden Crown kit from the post office today, just barely scratching the surface but off first mod with green gromet, 1mm spring, 9mm shaft, and 15.5mm actuator it's already a drastic improvement in feel over the stock 309MJ. The quality of your gromets compared to the stock ones is visually obvious.

    If I can offer any critique, I would suggest bumping the dust washer diameter to 31mm, which would allow it to be used without stacking and still be able to cover the hole when in action.

    I forsee myself taking my HRAP3 apart many times over the next few days...

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Bigger Dust washer indeed will cover more but I'm afraid it will get in a way when using longer throw shaft. so I use default size.

    I need some input regarding the spring, is it good idea to remove the 0.6mm and swap it with 0.9mm or 1.2mm spring?

    I actually ended up using the 0.6mm spring and I'm liking it the most. I'm using it with the green grommet.
    What kind of differences are you noticing versus the 1mm? I wasn't gonna bother attempting using this as part of the combinations but if it's noticeable I'll give it a shot.

    It's not a huge change and you can probably go without it. I used the 1mm spring with the green and clear grommets but I wanted a middle ground between those two tensions. Green grommet with 0.6mm spring helped with this a little. It's a very subtle change and I feel like it only really makes a difference around the center, close to the dead zone.

    Big thanks to @wazwuz for everything he does for us in the thread. Tried out the Fujin 2 lever I got in the mail in my current build with a Panzer 3 Korean Edition for a body, Crown Samducksa SDL buttons, and the Fujin. I'll post some pictures up once I get the art in and finished. Anyone in here ever add LED setups to these new Crown buttons ?

    That's the reason I bought the buttons. I've tested out some setups and it's looking pretty good but the set of LEDs I plan to use hasn't arrived yet so I don't have a finished product to show. I got rekt though.

    309MJ just arrived. With A3 switches to boot. Makestick does seems a bit silent on communicating, but they deliver. Not entirely sure if I wanna repeat that ordeal though.

    How long did it take you to receive your order from Makestick?

    10 days since payment taken. Additional 2 days before that for them to accept payment on Paypal, so a total of 12 days since order submitted. And I'm located in South East Asia with a 5 hours flight distance away.

    Mentioned it earlier, it's not about the period waiting, it's the lack of communicating. Their website doesn't instil confidence, and their "order management" page hasn't change from "Payment Completed", until the order is practically on the delivery truck here.

    Ordered mine Friday, arrived Tuesday. Not too bad from Korea to Canada for me ! I'll let you guys know what switches they decided to put on the Fujin's when I get home from work.

    Ordered mine on friday as well but payment is still "pending" on my paypal account, although on the makestick site it says "payment completed" makes me wonder if they are having problems with paypal as i just created a paypal account to buy that stick.

    Don't worry about it too much, you can't really go off the info their site. They don't complete the transaction until the package arrives at your door, so it will stay pending until then. Just sit tight and give them a few more days.

    Made an order from Makestick yesterday, fingers crossed now. I ordered from them 3 months ago which (I think) was after Rohan left and that went all right, but still praying nonetheless. Why does it feel like such a gamble to order from them lol.

    Also hearing all of the positive feedback about the Crown buttons makes me regret not getting any with my last order. :(

    I ordered from makestick too on Wednesday and sent an email straight after because I forgot the pin converter to sanwa :(

    I really hope they get back to me this week, still eagerly waiting for my stick and just missed the focus attack stock. Payment is still pending and no shipping notice yet :(
    So last time I ordered I didn't get any emails at all, let alone order or shipping confirmation. It basically just arrived at my doorstep a week after I ordered.

    Update: It arrived lol

    I got a minor update on that purple Crown lever that JDCR, Saint and Kkokkoma have been trying out. Someone who was watching Kkokkoma's stream said this might be version 2 of the 309 Help Me lever. Might be in early test phase so we probably haven't heard much.
    So Saint, JDCR and Infiltration are in Australia for BAM9, and what better to do than to get some answers about their levers?

    Confirmed from JDCR that the purple Crown lever they've been using in arcades is a HelpMe hand-made product, but he's not sure if it's supposed to be a version 2 of the 309-HelpMe. He said maybe.

    As for the Crown SDL-301, Infiltration said it's coming out in June some time. Looks like he lived up to his word - it really is coming out in Early 2017. :^)
