I’ve got the basic Wii Fighting Stick, which is presumably the same as all the low end Hori sticks.
Now I originally intended on replacing everything - the buttons, microswitches, stick, top, restrictor gate, with quick disconnects…the works.
But I decided against it because this is my first attempt at it, the Wii doesn’t have many games for this stuff anyway, and it’s quite costly to do it, seeing as though I don’t have any of the requisite tools:)
So to cut to the chase, I’ve decided to do this in stages, starting with replacing the stick itself - not the microswitches or anything like that, literally just the metal stick, as it’s starting to rust all over…
Now the problem I have is that all the tutorials I’ve come across only cover replacing everything. I want to know if I buy the “Sanwa JL-S9F Shaft” (http://www.lizardlickamusements.com/pages/joysticks.shtml), would this be compatible? Would I be able to just switch it out with this? Are all the metal rods built to a common industry standard?
