Semitsu balltop on a JLF shaft


Hi all, I’m looking to swap out the balltop on a pair of Sanwa JLF joysticks, but I can’t seem to find a clear sanwa balltop. Semitsu’s bubbletop looks good, but I don’t know if the threading on the balltop is the same or if it requires an adaptor.

Also, any recommendations on a place to order besides would be appreciated. I love focus attack, I’m just looking for different items.


Yea it’ll fit, all Seimitsu and Sanwa balltops uses a 6mm threading, so it fits on all Japanese joystick shafts in the market, except those that are threaded to a different dimension by default. Personally I do most of my orders from Paradise Arcade Shop and ArcadeShock. Paradise has some of my favorite balltops in the market, also next time ask questions here: Absolute Question and Answer Thread v.3 (ASK YOUR QUESTIONS HERE!)


Arcadeshock has the clear sanwa 35lb balltop in stock. If your interested in battops, focus attack has the clear sanwa battop that needs to threaded adapter
