Ultimate Joystick and Button Replacement for Picade 2018


#1

I have seen a few posts of people talking about replacement joysticks and buttons in some of the forums on the net . Can anyone recommend to me the best arcade quality joystick and buttons that are drop in replacements for the current joystick and buttons and provide links if possible? Would I be able to put in a tighter spring and change the ball top to a bat top and get the same results? So far In my brand new picade has button that sticks and a seriously loose joystick with a ball top that turns very easily,

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks guys!

I use the Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT Joystick with a 4lb spring. Easy to change out. Also added a GT-Y Octo Gate.

You can get it from https://www.focusattack.com/sanwa-jlf-tp-8yt-joystick/ and order it customized.

Now my buttons I do not like the clicking. I live good quality silent buttons. I use Gold Leaf Push buttons.

It all depends how much you want to invest to get the feel you want really.
