I’m modding my x-arcade with a sanwa stick and convex buttons for a ‘Japanese’ config stick to go with my ‘american’ Modded x-arcade (Happ Competition stick and Happ concave buttons).
I used cherry switches in the ‘American’ stick as i read that they are the best for Happ joysticks and are what is used in American cabinets, will cherry switches fit on a sanwa stick? also what is the make of micrositches that are used on actual japanese arcade cabs using sanwa sticks?, or is there a make that is considered the best for sanwa sticks?
ps. the easiest sanwa to put in the x-arcade because of the MDF thickness is the Sanwa Joystick JLW-TM-8, does anyone have any thoughts on this stick or used it? i know it’s not meant to be as good as a JLF but would an amateur and not a pro-competition player notice any problems? i love my Happ competition butwanted a good ball top for a different ‘feel’.
