I wanna replace my TE round 2 stock stick with a sanwa balltop. Which one should i get? Thanks guys.
You just want a different balltop?
Just pick the color you think will look nice…
I like bubble tops, they look nice even though they’re not sanwa.
Um, no. I was looking for a sanwa balltop stick. Y’know, not bat top? To replace my TE.
Like, the whole stick, not just the top.
Y’know what, let me be very specific as i should have in the first place. A Sanwa brand joystick to replace my TE stock stick. And it has to a ball top not a bat top. there we go. :3
TE’s already come with Sanwa JLF. Unless your TE’s JLF is acting up then makes sense to replace it.
Jlfs’ are balltop by default. The TE’s default joystick is a jlf. The specific model of the jlf that TE uses is the jlf-tp-8yt-sk, if I recall correctly.
Y’know what, let me be very specific as well. I should have been in the first place.
The Tournament Edition arcade stick (stock), includes:
[*]Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT-SK, which is a ball top arcade stick, NOT BAT.
So if you want to replace the original stick, AGAIN, with what you should already have, if it is a stock stick… Just get a Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT-SK and pick the ball top color you like.
I think all major sticks today come with a JLF, and possiblySanwa/semistu buttons.
Hori’s TE’s Qanba’s all come with JLF’s and Sanwas by default these days. The only real replacing you need to do is just get different button colors, and a new balltop color.
Btw, off topic, but does anyone know where to get just plain old sanwa push buttons without the switches inside?
Well, i was looking for a stick that would be better if there is one. :3
The JLF is arguably the best stick in the sub $30 range.
Sanwa only makes two models of joystick suitable for fighting games, and the JLF is the only one plug and Play with the TE.
Define better. Other good options are:
Seimitsu LS-32-01 can go in TE with stock SS mounting plate
Seimitsu LS-56-01 with an MS mounting plate
Seimitsu LS-40-01 With SS mounting plate
None are definably “better” in terms of quality, they are just unique in feel and comes down to preference.
There also exists a Sanwa Flash, an optical stick, but if you can even find one from some random person on the internet, you will be lucky if someone will even accept $220 to part with that model discontinued in 2004. 2 or 3 of them pop up on the trading forum each year and $200 is the lowest i’ve seen it go for.
That or a gut an Ascii Optical stick which is a clone of the Flash, but it will probably set you back $100+. If you can wait in some undisclosed time Toodles will make a replacement board that is another clone of the Flash.
When you’re already driving a ferrarri, there is no better car.
I’d go this route with an octo gate if you’re just looking for something different. It has a decidedly different feel from the JLF that many people enjoy.
I believe the better move would be to ask “what exactly is the OP looking for in a stick?”
He may not know. It reminds me of the posters asking how to add a JLF to their TE.
Agreed. I’ve got a half finished stick with this setup and I’m finding myself using it more than my JLF/LS-32 sticks
