We weren’t sure why Sanwa was charging so much so we had our own harnesses made, got the same micros used and put a ball top on it… But since these are “special” sticks, we figured they were worth a bit more so we included 2lb springs and three restriction options square/octagon/circle.
What are these?
JLF’s with modified micros that are reed switches and massively reduce the sound.
Why are you selling these instead of Sanwa’s official stick?
People are retailing these sticks for over 60 each… Sanwa is charging a boat load to swap the micros and provide a harness. We used our suppliers to source out the same switches used in the official brand and used a custom harness manufacturing facility to make harnesses with hard plastic insulation almost identical to Sanwa… We didn’t think it was right to gouge the players for these simple mods so we are selling them for 50 each and including some goodies to boot.
What about kits?
D2RV-G micros are tough to come by and we are almost sold out of the sticks. We will make kits available 9/4 for 35 each, this way you can mod your own JLF to be silent.
Why are you under cutting everyone, are these just a cheap knock off?
We really just figured out how to do this in a way that saves everyone money. We know the wholesale pricing and we are not going to make as much per stick as retailers selling the official stick… We are selling this cheap because we think it’s a great idea that should not be so damn expensive. These are not a cheap knock off at all, these are actual Sanwa JLF’s with real D2RV-G micros. The harnesses are all cut designed to wrap around a JLF with the correct patter for the pin out so down, left, up, and right are all in the correct place!
What is this vacation thing?
Yes, we are taking two weeks… this is the first vacation I’ve had in two years (I don’t count the 2 weeks I took off last year to work on the store ) We will be in MN, if anyone is in Minneapolis and wants to come over for some fresh Ahi on Saturday, let me know, bbq at my dad’s. We will also have Tekken 5, DKJr., Space Invaders and a sick looking Journey arcade machine running… Sorry no street fighter cabinets at his place.
