Sanwa Joystick is a Japan-made joystick built with premium quality, high precision and reliability. It is used in many Japanese made arcade cabinets created by Sega, Namco, Taito, etc. Thanks to the short travel and light spring pressure of the joystick, players can make special moves more quickly and input the correct commands in tight timings. Firm Construction and durable materials make it sturdy with a long life span. Sanwa Joystick is regarded as one of best joysticks among game players.

Sanwa joystick is not only suitable for replacement in most Arcade machines, but is also suitable for home console joystick controllers such as the Mad Catz Street Fighter joystick. More and more home users are modifying their joystick controller and installing Sanwa parts for a better playing experience. In addition, famous video Game accessories factories such as Hori equip many of their joystick controllers with Sanwa joysticks.
