Question about old school happ


#1

Will old school happ ultimate red bat top \ shaft fit in happ p360?


#2

Looking at the specs on Suzo-Happs website I would lean towards ‘probably’ or at the very least ‘close enough’ (i.e. minor modifications to induce a good fit). Also, just to make sure, when you’re referring to Ultimate you’re referring to an olde time copy of this, yes?


#3

yeah that or i would just buy an old ultimate. either way.

thanks

Next question. I found some information that says a wico ball top shaft will fit in a hap 360 (all though its a little short) has anyone actually done this here? it seems like it would be too short to work in a wood panel although i am planning to throw it in a metal panel if i do it. any confirmation?

thanks in advance!


#5

I have tried this. Here’s the thing. Wico ball tops come in two lengths that I will describe relative to Happy P360s. A bit too short and way too short. You’re also, likely, going to have zero choice in what color you end up with.


#6

Figured. Ty. Red is good for me ty!!!


#7

Usually Red or Black, and I never seen both red and black Wico ball tops sold in the same place at the same time.
I only saw reproduction Ball tops in Red.

I forgot who made custom shafts for the old Wico that accepts standard Japanese ball tops.


#8

Nah, there are lots of colors available and I just remembered where. Tada!!!

@sethian0 while you should probably pick up both lengths it’s more likely than not that the 4" length is going to work best for what I think you’re trying to accomplish in which case enjoy some ugly ass color choices.


#9

thanks I am going to see if Joe has some compatible dragon bat top for the perfect 360


#10

although my other optical stick has a ball top so i may try to fit a red ultimate shaft in it


#11

Bought some stuff off the eBays recently for my build:

Wico Yellow Ball Top Leafswitch Joystick RARE

IL Brand 1 Happ Competition 8 Way Joystick Arcade Jamma Mame TM

Planning to di test fits it in both WICO and HAPP P360’s

Will let you know how it goes @sethian0.


#12

thanks a bunch!!! better hurry up with that optical build. I am working on #2 and have most parts for #3 down the road =) I can’t wait to see yours! #2 will most likely consist of those old school red ones we got with a custom compact happ box from @jasenhicks . #3 will probably be the 8 white ones in a revamped sf anniversary box (but that will be far down the road). the good news about #2 will be if i lose i can smash someone’s skull with the panzer =)

LOL!


#15

well funny turn of events. my cousin wants a stick so i think i will donate the sf case to him (but keep the buttons hehehe)


#16

@Feargus001100 I just bought a Happ ultimate shaft, so I will confirm if it fits with the p360 as well. TTYL!


#17

@Feargus001100 @Nobus3r1 ver. 2.0 Just verified. Happ ultimate shaft is too thin to fit in happ 360. Oh well.


#18

has anyone ever tried sticking ANY happ shaft in a suzo 500 or inductive? ill try when i get my parts but just curious.
