CROWN CWL-309M-DX-QR Joystick [QUICK RELEASE]

Japanese sticks have been aplenty in South Korea after the release of Street Fighter IV. Due to Korean joystick levers using different mounting standards than those from its neighbor, there was no affordable solution for some time

Samducksa would later experiment with levers that try to work with Japanese sticks but also feel similar to the real deal. Their MJ sub series of levers would be the end result. These allow for easy installation due to the mounting plates having the same screw points as their Japanese counterparts. They also have plastic collars, albeit reduced in size from the normal models, that allow for fluid action

Parts wise, the CWL-309M-DX-QR lever in particular is to be the more mod friendly version of the 309 ver. Helpme lever. You can expect directional inputs to be balanced like its full-fledged brethren. The 35A silicone tension grommet might be lighter than what the Helpme lever has but it's easier for those new to Korean levers. With the DX designation, it features the more premium transparent bat tops than found on its bigger brother

What's New?

In the past few years, many different companies have followed the initial creation of Phreakmod's The Link which allows you to easily remove the shaft.  Crown's version seems to be closer to Victrix's Link 2, where the shaft is all one smooth surface.  To remove, the shaft is pulled towards the bat top.  Similar to the Victrix variant, there is extra space in their bat top that gives it room to pull and detach from the joystick notch and be removed entirely
