    Analog stick covers

    It's my first time of using them and I think they're awesome. My hands usually get a little slippery and my thumbs or fingers will get sore when using the controller after long periods of playing time. I'm talking like 10, 12 ,14 , 16 hours of playing even 24 hours or more sometimes. And now my thumb's don't get sore or they don't slip off during heated moments in the game like when you're in a long contested fighting 4 your life moments.... LoL I have had absolutely no problems with them. They fit firmly on my analog sticks on my PlayStation 4 remote and have not once slipped off or giving me any problems whatsoever. The only problem I had was getting used to them because they were so soft but after I got used to them they were great. I highly recommend them to anybody that place for long periods of time. The price is great there is nothing I can say bad about them I say get them they are well worth it. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I hope this helps anybody that's never used them before because I've never used anything like these before and I am glad that I have purchased them. It has made my gaming experience a whole lot better. Thank you and good luck on your purchase.

    I waas looking for something that would give me great cushion and grip due to the fact that I am missing part of my thumb bone on my left hand. My cousin had the red COD grips and I loved them so I decided to get a set. When I got to Bestbuy I came across this set of grips and thought that the price was a little less so I will just get those. Sadly to say when I got home and tried them on my controller first thing I noticed was the didnt stay on the joystick well. Secondly, even tho they were textured they were slippery. Almost like an oily substance was on them... even tried wiping them off and still my thumb wouldn't get a good grip. I would had given these no stars but I took into consideration that maybe my thumb could be part of the problems. Went back and bought the COD covers and haven't had a problem since. I guess like they say... you get what you pay for.

    These covers are cheap, but should be cheaper. Like $2 at the most. The covers don't seem to stay on very well, especially after 10 minutes of trying to get them on. The left one keeps coming off, but the right one has stayed on. It's cause of what the left is used for because I usually am pressing and turn it with a good amount of force. I probably over due it, but I bought these hoping they would fix that issue by giving my thumb a better grip. It did help, just not good enough to keep the right cover on. If you have a lighter touch than me I'd say definitely try them.

    I have used several different stick covers and pads. I love these for FPS, JRPGS, and Turn-based games. I listed the genres because some sticks and pads say "use with this style of games." I have hand problems and on one of the pads, I lightly placed hot glue onto the top to create a little bit of height to ease the pain. These just slip onto the sticks already on the controller so they will not damage the controller or leave behind ground plastic like 2 sets of Kontrol Freeks done to me. The downside is there have been instances where the pads slipped completely off, but that was during intense gameplay where the material heated up and expanded while I was playing FPS's.

    As somebody who has had to deal with Dualshock 4 wearing out from the thumb stick plastic peeling off, I finally gave in and got some covers for them. These covers feel nice and I like them more than the uncovered sticks, but I notice that they keep slipping out of place, rotating clockwise as they are used over long periods of time. This isn't much of a problem with the concave sticks as it's hard to feel the difference, but is very annoying with the convex sticks since they only have four prongs. They constantly rotate into diagonal positions, which means I have to constantly check to adjust them back into place. It'd be nice if I didn't have to think about using superglue to keep them in place.

    This was my first time trying thumb sticks since my toddler practically ate the rubber off my Ps4 remote analog sticks. Anyway, I tried the rounded ones with the ridges atop and those simply didn't stay on, also they seemed to hinder functionality as I had trouble moving around in multiple games while these were in use. I thought I'd installed wrong so I removed and tried again but still the same result with both sets. The flatter thumb sticks did seem to work well with my Xbox One controllers though so I guess that's something. In the end I am just gonna replace my Ps4 remote.

    I purchased these to add to the analog sticks on my PS4 controllers after the rubber tore off from repeated years of use. They were easy to put on. There was no need to remove the original ones, just slip them over. It’s been almost a year since I purchased these and they are still holding up great despite using them for a few hours every single day. If you’re looking for an affordable replacement for your thumbsticks look no further!

    So, I bought 2 sets of these because I have a child who became slightly rough with my PS3/PS4 controllers. The indented ones fit the PS4 controllers very nice, but felt odd when first using them. The PS3 ones (textured?) fit loosely and not quite right. I used them for a couple weeks and they started falling off the well used controller. I actually just ended up taking them back off and using the controller without them. I would recommend the indented ones for the PS4, but not the textured ones.

    Before I bought these guards, I was dubious they'd deliver. Would they hold or slip and slide all over the place during everyday play? Would they be solid or fall apart after a couple weeks? Still, the rubber guards on the left sticks on two of myPS4 controllers were shredded and if I didn't do something, they'd be unusable. Simply put, these covers stunned me. Rugged, a perfect fit and totally beyond expectations. They've extended the useful life of two controllers, saving me at least $115. A must buy at Best Buy!

    As many heavy gamers know, the analog stick portion of PlayStation controllers can be easily worn down. This can leave them feeling sticky and difficult to use. These analog stick covers are a great solution. While they can be a tad difficult to get into position (they need to stay in place so it's a tight fit), once in place they work perfectly. It is also worth noting that they even work with PS2 controllers, so they are a great solution for three generations of Sony consoles!

    Too Loose

    I bought these to use as PS4 and Nintendo Switch Joy-Con covers. I can't fault the convex covers being too loose on the Joy-Cons since they weren't made for that, but the concave covers are way too loose on the PS4 sticks, and they constantly slide and twist. Do yourself a favor and buy the Xbox One version of these analog covers as they fit the PS4 sticks much better. If you don't do that, buy a more expensive brand because these aren't worth the cheap cost.

    These covers fit pretty snug on my Dualshock 4 control sticks, but can take a little work fitting them on - I like to slip the lip on one side of the stick first, then work one side in little by little until the cover is completely in. There are two sets included, one which I really like. The other set feels a little more raised than I really like, and I've just saved that one aside - at this price, I can't really complain. Each set also fits the PS3 controller, Dualshock 3, as I've tested.

    I bought these for my PS4 Controller. I wore out the left stick coating that comes on the controller and the hard plastic underneath was hurting my thumb, but not any more! These go on fairly easily but don't slide off when pushing on the stick to run etc in game. It does take a bit of getting used to because they make the stick feel cushioned and sometimes too soft, like you're not pushing hard enough to run. I'm hoping this will extend the life of my new controller without damaged sticks too. Happy with the purchase, very affordable fix.

    Okay so you've had your ps4 for a while now and everything is great except your dualshock remotes thumb sticks have gotten worn and the grippy rubber stuff is peeling off. These are a good alternative to buying a new remote. They feel nice and grippy although I wish they would go on a little tighter. If you apply to much pressure they can come off a little and mess up your aim. Make sure you cut off any hanging pieces of rubber from your worn out thumb sticks before you put these over them and you should have no problems

    I was a bit hesitant on purchasing these because I wasn't sure if they would fit onto the controller arms. However, once I got them out of the package I was even more skeptical. In my opinion they didn't seem to fit tightly over the arms. I was thinking, "well, my boys are gonna remove these in no time." But I'm happy to say that the makers have proven me wrong. These really hold their own and stay put on the arms. So it's a well-worth buy.

    Replace torn thumb pads, or improve existing ones

    My kid used to chew on the thumbtacks of my PS4 controllers when she was a younger gamer, and the rubber covering finally came off. I found these at Best Buy and they work great! It's not a perfect fit if the original rubber is gone, but they stay on and they're a whole lot cheaper than a new controller. They work even better if your thumb pads are in good shape. They have nice texture and contours to hold your thumbs in place while gaming.

    Got these only because I didn't want my analogue sticks to wear down and get junky. After using them though they actually help keep better grip while playing fast paced FPSs. Didn't think these would add any value minus just being protective covers but they do what they advertise. Great price too. If you play a lot of FPSs or faster paced games I highly recommend picking them up. Some people complain about them coming off but the only time mine do is when my 2 year old pulls them off.

    I have two PS4 controllers, so this set was perfect. Fairly simple installation. They feel nice, and add a greater sense of control when moving the L3 and R3 sticks. Takes a little effort for the pair that has the grouped bumps, because of being "thinner". May be obvious, but I'd recommended to not have your controller(s) 'ON' when installing, since you'll likely be moving the L3 and R3 sticks around to install each set. Packaging is pretty secure, so have a pair of scissors handy to open.

    After almost 2 years with the original dualshock, the rubbers were done. I was about to buy a new one because it bother me not having a good grip on the analogs. I saw this item on sale for 3.99 the day before purchasing a new controller and decided to give it a try. Glad I did the analogs have much better grip and in my opinion it feels better than the original rubber. I recommend this item even if your analog cover are not completely destroyed, you not really losing much just to try it.

    You can get something similar to this on eBay or Amazon all day long but this is also not a bad deal particularly if you don't want to wait for shipping. I personally like the thumb grips for more stability and to keep my actual grips clean. Note:if you like to press down really hard on your joysticks while playing, these can come off but it's not a big deal because you can put them back on.
