How to loosen up my t5 hori joystick

its a bit to stiff, and i think if i can loosen it up, i can do my electrics alot better on the 1p side. does anyone know a way i can break this in quickly. i have been using it for almost a year now, and it still feels about as stiff as when i first got it.

help please. the search tool wasnt working, or else i woiuld have searched to see if anyone has made a thread like this before

thanks for any help

You might be able to take the spring off of the shaft of the stick and compress it down by hand a bit. I did the opposite to tighten a stick I had, so I don’t see why that wouldn’t work…if your stick has a spring in it.

Funny, mine loosened up after about two months of play.

more help please
