Do you own a FightStick, but have trouble storing it or traveling with it? Then you’re in luck as a quick release JLF shaft called The Link by PhreakMods has been re-released and is better than ever.

Do you own a FightStick, but have trouble storing it or traveling with it? Then you’re in luck as a quick release JLF shaft called The Link by PhreakMods has been re-released and is better than ever. What exactly is The Link? The Link is a redesign of the Sanwa JLF shaft, which is the standard in a good majority of FightSticks on the market. It’s been designed so that once you stop gaming and need to store or travel with your FightStick you can remove the shaft that is sticking out and in the way.

Why this device is such a good product is because of how easy it is to install and use. The Link comes in three parts: the base, the top and the collar operation piece. All you need to do to use it after installation is to simply pull up on the spring loaded collar to release the shaft from the base. The same is done when putting it back on. Included with The Link is a 3mm hex key which allows you to tighten or loosen the ball top if need be without the need to open up the entire FightStick.

Installation of The Link is a breeze if you’ve got the tools to open up your FightStick. All you do is open up the FightStick to access the JLF assembly, remove the e-clip over original JLF base and swap it for The Link base, then replace the e-clip. It’s really that easy and only takes 10 to 15 minutes.

 I’ve use The Link now for 2 weeks and have had absolutely no issues while using it. This device is amazingly simple and practical. I used to travel for work and it was always a hassle to bring my FightStick with me due to not having room for the stick with shaft and ball top connected. I’ve also had the unfortunate mishap of my FightStick dropping ball top down and breaking. The Link alleviates those issues and I love it.

Another thing to note is that The Link doesn’t come off during normal play unless you absolutely want it off. It’s designed so well that it feels like using the basic Sanwa JLF shaft and doesn’t affect play at all. It took less than 10 minutes to get used to it and most users won’t even notice a difference while using it. It’s also worth noting that when The Link isn’t in the FightStick there is a hole where it was. I highly advice purchasing the extra dust washer and black cover cap to keep everything protected.

The link is available for purchase at FocusAttack.com for $35 RRP. I highly recommend this product to anyone and everyone that owns a FightStick, you won’t regret owning one!

Zhi the always entertaining tour guide of the FGC made some commercial spots for Mad Catz. Check them out & let me know what you think. I've left my comments.

Mad Catz has been posting these unused commercial spots from Zhi. They're pretty good.

You can't market something with out having pooping involved.

I remember when I first saw this clip & I thot Zhi felt let down that he wasn't buff enough for Kayo Police. 

The punchline in this 1 is classic.

Blinging out the EVO fightstick

By: BatRastered Aug 9, 2012 | 4 Comments

I recently purchased a limited edition EVO fightstick from MadCatz and decided to get it dual modded and blinged out with some LED buttons. Check out the results here!

Check out my new fightstick. I bought the limited EVO edition of the MadCatz PRO fightstick for the XBox 360. I'm a fan of the Pro model for it's shape and lack of screws on the top plate, but I didn't want a SFxT stick, so I jumped on that EVO stick when it went up for sale on line! Here it is before it was modded:

Fightstick Before Modding

Not a bad looking stick, I dig the clear case and clean artwork. The PS3 version looks better though with its all white buttons on the face. I can't believe MS forces the rainbow colors on the manufacturers. I wanted my new fightstick to work with both the XBox and PS3, so I had the stick modded by local Vegas pro Vicko, check out his site at VickoMods.com. He also talked me into getting a fancy LED board. Well, at the very least I wanted to get rid of those rainbow buttons and have them all the same color, so might as well replace them with the clear buttons. But, yeah let's do the LED too! The stick works great on both systems now, no switches either, it auto-detects and just works!

Here's some of the circuitry under construction:

After the stick was finished (unpowered) note the new wiring:
After modding, unlit
 
And finally all lit up:
Fight stick after mod, lit up
 
As an extra bonus, check out this video of the stick in action:
 
Yeah, it's pretty badass, there are dozens of effects you can program into it, I've only played with half of them.
 
I highly recommend getting your stick dual modded... at $80 done by a professional, you can't go wrong. Way cheaper than buying a second stick and tons more convenient too! The LED mod is totally unnecessary, but if you can swing it, it will certainly make your fightstick stand out. Of course, you could accomplish that with some custom artwork too for a lot cheaper if that's your thing.
