As a Japanese seller of the Sanwa JLF we know how popular the joystick is. For a couple of decades now the joystick has probably been the best that is out there and the standard for Japanese arcade gaming.
If you wanted you could play with it stock but you could also change the main guide to an octagonal one and get a completely different feeling of it.Over the years there have been numerous people/companies developing different parts for the Sanwa JLF to make it more refined; custom actuators, harder springs, round gates et.c. While all these parts changed the feel of the JLF somewhat it never revolutionized anything but that is about to change."OTTO DIY Kit V5 - Japanese Version", made by OTTO DIY, is a very high quality product kit that will transform the normal Sanwa JLF to a joystick that feels extremely smooth, reduces throw and increase the feeling when doing 360 movement. Basically this is what the ultimate JLF would feel like.
