    Best bang for the buck!

    I really like these thumbstick grips! Getting two sets for $5, you can't really beat that. I've been using mine for a few months now, and they still are as good as when I first bought them (using them on my Xbox One controller). They fit on snugly and don't spin or fall off like other grips I have used before. They help improve my grip for shooting games, and they will help prolong the life of your controller by you not wearing down the thumbsticks themselves. They sell these for the PS4 as well, and the PS4 controller's thumbsticks wear down a lot faster than Xbox's, so I definitely recommend these grips for PS4 owners as well.

    You don't think you need them, but you do

    If you're not using an Elite controller (which has available metal control sticks), you'll need these. The rubber on the regular XBox One controllers wears out over time and becomes brittle, and it's a bit disgusting when it starts falling apart all over your thumbs. Getting these cheap little guys, which just plop right on in a couple seconds, will prevent that from happening.

    Great little caps. I find that the rounded ones with the many nubs are great for shooter games. They don't perform so well for racing games. The caps that look like standard xbox controller sticks I have not tried, but they feel like they would bring the new controller feeling back to worn out sticks. They are a little tough to get on at first, but that's a good thing. They are also not the most stylish or colorful, but they serve their purpose. Worth it for only 5 bucks. Not taking any stars off this

    Bought these for an older controller that the thumbsticks we're very worn out. Slips on fairly easy and made it feel great. Decided to put the second pair on my new controller to prevent it from getting worn off. I wouldn't say it necessarily helped my gaming but it did make the controllers feel better. At the price I got these for you can't go wrong. Will go back and buy more for my future use.

    Given how much these costs, there's nothing to complain about. I will say the concave shaped caps didn't stay on as well, it kept sliding off while I was play but I am one of those people that cannot help continuously using excessive pressure with the joysticks but the other two convex shaped ones with the goosebumps worked really well & stopped my fingers from getting sore.

    I lost the top off of one of my kontrol freek thumb sticks. I bought the insignia covers to replace it because they were similar in size and significantly cheaper. The kontrol freek top that I lost was made of nicer materials and felt more comfortable than the insignia one- but it was also twice as expensive. Although the insignia is not as nice, it is good enough.

    Good Fix for Broken Analog Pads

    I bought these after somehow tearing a seam in the existing xbox controller analog pad playing Madden. The little disc in the middle would pop up literally every time I tried to juke. If you're looking for something to add more control/leverage to your playing this isn't it. This is basically a steering wheel cover for your controller joysticks. Solved my problem easily for like 5 bucks.

    I found no great benefit in using these on my xbox one controllers. They actually did the opposite. They were slippery and not sticky. My thumbs kept sliding off. Like I said earlier, for $5 you can try them out for yourself. I will be returning mine to Best Buy to get my $5.41 credit. Maybe the more expensive ones work better, i don't know. I just wanted to see what a difference they would make in my fps accuracy. I could not get used to them.

    Breathe new life into old controllers

    The rubber coatings on the thumbsticks of my Xbox 360 controller wore out years ago. I was resigned to the discomfort and slipperiness of the bare plastic till I found these replacement rubber covers. They work great, and it is nice to have the option to choose between the dotted texture or the smooth one with dots only in the cardinal directions.

    The only reason I removed a star is not for lack of quality, I just wish that they sold the different styles separately because I like the convex grips with raised bumps a lot better than the concave ones. Besides that one gripe, I really like the feel of these grips and the protection they provide from warm thumbsticks. I've bought several over the past year and would highly recommend them to any gamer.

    It definitely helps with alleviating the thumb fatigue. The grip is pretty good and I like how there are 2 different kinds to choose from. I'm not sure it helps with the accuracy. It's more for racing or other adventure games and not so much for shooting/multiplayer, in my opinion. For the price, it's worth it as it helps with the gaming.

    Nice and grippy

    I like these because it makes the whole stick pad a little bigger and more grippy than normal. If you get crazy though you can peel one off while playing but not often and only if you lose it and play with too much grip strength. One set is in the style of playstation thumb pads and the other set in the style of the Xbox thumb pads.

    Works for PS4 and Switch Pro Controllers

    I bought these for a Nintendo Switch Pro controller and an extra set for a PS4 controller. The concave set actually fits better on the PS4 controller than the ones made for the PS4, and the convex set, while slightly loose, is a suitable substitute for the Switch Pro controller. It's certainly worth the low price point compared to competitors.

    These pads are great! First pack I purchased was for PS4 controllers. I immediately felt a difference in my gameplay. Much more accurate and precise movement, which is crucial in a game like Doom 2016. Loved these pads so much I purchased another set for my XBox One controllers. Same effect. Brilliant!

    This gives you an extra grip for those who have trouble gripping the joy stick. You can mix both of them, I used them on my xbox one and I like them for $2.99 They work for me! In my opinion better than paying $14.99. I'll post another review in a month or so to see how they last.

    Let me clarify, the set that resembles the 360's thumbsticks feel great. Very comfortable for us with bigger fingers who don't particularly like the Xbox One's standard thumbstick size. The other set of covers are poor. My fingers were always slipping off and the design feels really awkward.

    I've been using this regularly for over 2 weeks now, and it has held up well. I've only used the one with bumps on it so far, but I've got the others tucked away in case of need. There is no sliding, no tearing or any other issue at this stage, so if you need a replacement cover, get this one!

    I was very surprised by the quality of these analog stick covers. They feel very good and if your controller has been heavily used and the rubber has been worn out they will make it feel like new. So far they don't seem to slip off easily like other products I have purchased. For the price they were well worth it in my opinion.

    I've always used KontrolFreeks but Best Buy only had one KontrolFreek set in the store and I already owned them, so I decided to give these ones a shot. The plastic/rubber they used provided very little grip at all compared to the KontrolFreek brand. Insignia used a cheap plastic/rubber material that makes them feel extremely cheap.

    A little slick

    Difficult to get on the stick but once on it’s solid. I was hoping the domed cap would work well for me, but unfortunately it’s just a little slick even with the raised texture. I’ll still use them but not quite what I was hoping for.
