Hori Hayabusa Hollow Shaft?/ Bat top question


#1

Does anyone know if anyone makes/sells them? Ive fallen in love with the Hayabusa but would like to illuminate my balltop.

Also, unrelated, but does anyone make any translucent/bubbletop BATtops? I know it can be done as Ive seen shift knobs like this, but strangely Ive never seen any on fightsticks. I think an illuminated green or red one would be sick!

You can use JLF shafts


#3

And Sanwa now makes a clear Bat top, you need to drill out the base of the metal insert on the bat top to allow for the light.


#4

The JLF shafts wont change the feel or throw of the Busa?


#5

They are almost the same. Hayabusa shafts have a black finish and more of a notch for the e-clip (making the e-clip a little easier to insert.
But that is it. Every measurement is the same, I used a Hallow JLF shaft in a Hayabusa with no change in throw or engage or feel.


#6

Did somebody disagree with a question?


#7

No, it won’t. I currently have a jlf shaft in replace of the Busa shaft. I stripped the shaft tightening on a ball top with a smaller sized flathead.
