Description - Sanwa JLW-TM-8 Arcade joystick

The Sanwa JLW-TM-8 Joystick is perhaps not as well-known as its most famous brother, the JLF-TP-8Y. Nonetheless, it is a joystick that stands out on its own and has certain features that differentiate it from the JLF. It is without a doubt a Joystick to keep in mind if you are considering buying a Japanese top quality joystick.

The Sanwa JLW-TM-8 is a larger joystick in terms of dimensions and weight than the JLF-TP-8Y. It has a larger, square-shaped mounting plate and gives us the feeling of being a more sturdy joystick in general. The movements of the joystick bat itself are slightly rounder and less square-type than those of the JLF-TP-8Y, although the length travel is very similar between the 2 joysticks, being both of medium travel. Perhaps the JLW has a slightly shorter travel. In regards to the joystick's tension, the Sanwa JLW is a stiffer joystick than the JLF due to the spring that comes installed by default. Nevertheless is it not a hard Joystick by any means, like most Asian Joysticks.

In our opinion, the Sanwa JLW-TM-8 Joystick is ideal for all types of games although, it stands out in Shoot 'em ups and classic 4-way games such as Galaga, Galaxian, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, etc.

The JLW-TM-8 has a different restrictor to the JLF-TP-8Y which makes it very easy to configure and switch between 4- and 8-way mode. Also, the Joystick is fully compatible with the TOP ball parts and bats available at Arcade Express

The JLW-TM-8 stick is not compatible with the Octagonal and Round restrictors which we sell separately in the Joystick Accessories section and which are compatible with the Sanwa JLF.

This joystick is suitable for both wood and metal panels and if the handle falls short, at Arcade Express we sell a shaft metal extension that you can easily attach to the joystick.
