Is it possible to use the Bubble Top (LB-39), a 35mm ball made by Seimitsu on a Sanwa joystick? Could I exchange the tops, or are they different? I’d be exchanging it with a JLF-TP-8YT-SK joystick top.
As a side note, could anyone explain why the JLF-TP-8YT-SK is basically the JLF-TP-8YT but with a shaft cover, but costs less money?
Thanks for any help on either question! Appreciate it.
Which shop is this. I checked Lizard Lick and their JLFs are all priced at $25.95. Also, I believe that the JLF-TP-8YT-SK does not include the wiring harness, that and last I checked, the ones at Modchipman didn’t come with mounting plates (which could explain their formerly cheaper price there - until they dropped the price on the JLF-TP-8YT).
d3v, our JLF’s are 24.95… Sanwa has a bunch of part numbers for JLF’s, but they’re all the same stick at the core… We’ve got a page that we did before the 8YT-SK was born, it tells you the difference between the various models:
The difference between the 2 on our site is, the 8T has a harness and no shaft cover; the SK has a shaft cover and no harness, and the PCB is turned 90 degrees… Right now, the SK is the more popular model, due to all of the MadCatz SE sticks out there that people are modding…
And yes, the bubbletops will fit all of the Japanese sticks, except for the JLW-UM…
