Hi I was wondering if I could get some advice on the oversized actuators. Im thinking of ordering one of two, but im leaning towards the paradisearcade one because shipping is a bitch to canada, and costs 3-5x more than the part is worth to get it over here.
I have a wwe brawl stick with the jlf-clone stick, I put in a jlf octo gate. so thats what im working with. I dont think its a bad joystick even though its a clone, I dont have a problem with the responsiveness, just the engage/throw on the diagonals I need shorter (This is purely for arcade SHMUPS) in fighting games it performs very well already. Im just going to get a 2LB spring to match it up a bit more.
So im looking at the Kowal 1mm Oversized actuator from focus attack, its 4.50 US plus 11.50 US shipping.
and the white JLF 1mm oversized actuator from paradise which is 2.50 and 10$ US shipping. (However these say Long-throw, that means this isnt what im looking for?)
Would the Kowal be better for shmups due to a different shape? Or would the white jlf one be pretty much the same?
Or would you recommend a DIY method like shrink wrap?(I read those tear)
