Stock Hori Joystick Uses Omron Microswitches


#1

I bought the Hori HPJ-08 Fighting Stick PC with the intent to mod it with a Sanwa joystick and Sanwa buttons.

When I first laid my hands on the joystick it felt extremely similar to a Sanwa JLF. So I opened it up and lo and behold the joystick used Omron brand microswitches and looked very similar to a JLF. It feels so similar to a JLF that I won’t be modding the joystick but will only but modding the buttons.

Do all Hori stock joysticks use Omron switches or is it just this version that does?

The EX2 uses Omron. I believe the HRAP EX does as well.
