Newly bought fightstick too loose

Hey guys, just bought Mad Catz Arcade Fightstick Tournament Edition “S”, is it normal for it to be super loose? i can barely do akuma’s regular jumping forward drivekick.
i tried searching the forums already some stuff about tension, strings and such iduno what they are, what should i do to make it tighter so i can execute my combos much better i can do all of them on my PS3 controller easily. i dont know anything about modding and such since am fairly new to this.

thanks in advance.

Joystick Controller - Joystick and Button Attributes and Brand Parts

LS-56-01 (with MS plate), or LS-32-01 are your easiest options for changing to a stiffer joystick.

If you are new to using a Joystick, replacing with those parts will still not fix the problem of lack of joystick experience.

This your first Sanwa JLF playing?

yes this my first stick, my friend has the same one can i do combo on them much better.

Normal.

Do this.
