First i noticed some small changes in LS-32-01 restrictors when i bought one few months ago, i brought some pictures showed in other topic, that’s ok so far. But i recently ordered a LS-40-01 in Paradise Arcade shop which came very rough and grindy, it felt like there is no lubrication at all but actually there is the G-501 on the bearing and a different grease under the spring cover, in a more liquid spec than a silicone grease, and it’s not helping.
I know Seimitsu sticks for a long time, the LS-40-01 is the smoothest Seimitsu stick. Is so hard to believe the company is now building the stick like this, is the first time it happens.
Screws looks cheaper than others LS-40-01 i had contact. I didn’t came to blame the store but i know for sure this feels very different, unless the stick was kept stored for long years, but i think even so is not suppose to feel like this.
