The Link EX Groove is an updated version of the original Link released by Phreakmodz back in 2013.
The Link, once installed, replaces the existing Sanwa JLF shaft with a quick release one. This mod allows you to quickly remove the shaft and save space for when travelling with your stick or just keeping in storage at home. The great thing about the Link is that is compatible with ball tops and bat tops from Sanwa, Semitsu, Crown and our own Delrin bat tops.
The EX version that we stock contains a number of improvements over the original 2013 version:
- Internal design of the sleeve and shaft reduces the chance of spring pop out that could (rarely) happen in the older version.
- O-ring at the base of the shaft to retain the dust washer after removing the shaft.
- The diameter of the shaft at the underside of the ball top is now the same size as a stock Sanwa shaft with dust cover. This is great for those players who prefer the wine grip method of holding the stick.
