Got my ls-40, haya, and stuff for my jlf today.
OMG! Just hooked up this ls-40. Omg, I am such in love! This short engage is right up my alley coming from a short engage IL/Happ competition stick. Wow! This is amazing! FADC’ing is now so quick and effortless, wow! This is all me right here.
Hitting the gate feels like shit compared to the JLF though (I wonder if cuz its an old wodden mdf stick) especially hitting the gate at the diagonals cuz I actually feel a minute octagon in the corner, whereas the JLF just feels square. Doesn’t matter much tho, I barely ride the gate, unless crouching etc. Okay time to throw the Kowal in my JLF and see how that shortened engage feels
