IST’s own lever. It’s more or less their own take on making their own Myoungshin Fanta lever but for arcade sticks using a Japanese mounting system.
Korean parts company IST took the plunge with their own Korean levers with the Alpha series of levers.
The Alpha 49S lever features a 7.25mm shaft, different from 9mm shafts found on other levers. This makes travel from neutral to the edge of the full cut collar slightly larger. Despite the collar being at a flat level, IST optimized it to allow very similar fluidity found in normal and partially cut collars as well as work on slimmer arcade sticks.
The bottom portion of the 49S, optimized by player feedback in Korea, bears switches with a 15.5mm actuator. The lever also features a 25A tension grommet and a Crown clear bat top.
