Some sellers really need to write their descriptions better.
All Sanwa JLF will go into Mad Catz Street Fighter IV Arcade FightStick?.
[SK] notation does not mean it will go into a Mad Catz Arcade FightStick?.
All Sanwa JLF are the same; some just have different prefixes to show what is added on.
Here the six variations listed in Sanwa Catalog:
JLF-TP-8 is Base JLF.
JLF-TP-8Y is Base JLF with the TP-MA (PCB) rotated 90.
JLF-TP-8T is Base JLF with JLF-P-1 (Flat Mounting Plate).
JLF-TP-8YT is Base JLF with the TP-MA (PCB) rotated 90 with JLF-P-1 (Flat Mounting Plate).
JLF-TP-8S is Base JLF with the TP-MA (PCB) rotated 90 with JLF-P-1S (S Mounting Plate).
JLF-TP-8Y-SK is Base JLF with the TP-MA (PCB) rotated 90 with JLF-CD (Shaft Cover).
Of course other variations can be done too:
JLF-TP-8-SK, JLF-TP-8T-SK, JLF-TP-8S-SK, JLF-TP-8YT-SK.
I’ll just add this for completeness, since it is JLF:
JLF-TM-8 can do; JLF-TM-8T, JLF-TM-8T-SK, JLF-TM-8S, JLF-TM-8S-SK.
If you want the exact Sanwa counterpart of the stock Mad Catz Joystick, it is Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT-W.
The exact Joystick in Mad Catz Street Fighter IV Arcade FightStick? Tournament Edition is Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT-SK-W.
And then you say, "Oh no, I can’t find JLF-TP-8YT-W or JLF-TP-8YT-SK-W. Where can I buy one?"
The [W] is there to designate Ball Top color.
I did say it will be exact.
So get whatever you want.
You will not need to by a Sanwa JLF-H (Wire Harness).
The Wire Harness inside the Mad Catz Case will be used.
If you get a JLF without Mounting Plate, you will use the stock Mad Catz Mounting Plate.
So remove from the stock Mad Catz Joystick.
You’re the person with the stuck Ball Top.
Mad Catz Joystick is such a bad clone of the Sanwa JLF.
You will have super easier time removing Ball Top or Restrictor Gate on a JLF.
