    Extends sticks to a nice length

    These helped to extend the analog sticks on my controller to a nice length for my hands. The top rubberized grips are very comfortable for extended use and help to get good precision control on some games. The main problem is that the just snap on the original joystick so if you push too hard they will come of, but to be fair that is the same issue with any other stick extender in the market. So it helps if you have a very light touch like professional gamers do, so it may not be ideal for some casual gamer or those who apply a lot of force to the stick, like one tends to do when playing an intense game.

    Great, not perfect

    I have large hands so these really appealed to me. I love the way they feel, but for some reason my left thumb pushes harder I guess because the stick pops off during gameplay. I even switched them and same result. This happened with Apex Legends and UFC 3. I only use it on right stick now, which I'm totally ok with since that's my aiming stick. The extended stick smooths my aim out during combat it's definitely worth it. I don't know if everyone will have that problem, but I still recommend them regardless.

    I play a lot of Overwatch and these stick extenders really make a difference. They take a little bit to get used to so don't get discouraged after a few games. "Stick" with it and once you are accustomed to them, you will notice a great improvement to your accuracy. Also, rememeber that you don't need to use both of them. I use mine only on the right stick for aiming and keep the default on the left for movement. They pop off easy enough to switch when you're playing games you don't need them on but they are secure enough that your rage won't cause then to come off in the heat of battle.

    Decent product, but didn't work that well.

    I bought these for my son to use, as I thought they'd make it better for him to play Fortnite and Apex. I think they were a little taller on the pad than I thought and it took a little time for him to get used to them. After a few days, we actually took them off of his controller and now I use them instead. If you son/daughter is younger or has smaller hands, you might want to check to see the height first.

    Lengthens your Dualshock 4 analog sticks

    All of the KontrolFreek thumbsticks lengthen your analog sticks a certain length to theoretically give you more precise control to bridge the gap between controller and keyboard and mouse. They all do exactly that. The only thing I'm not fond of with their design is the top of their thumbsticks. I would rather have a uniform concave top with just a simple dotted grip rather than a different design for every game.

    It says it helps with First person shooters and you'll be able to aim better, now everybody is different in how they aim with a controller. I gave it about 2 weeks of use and feel like they didnt work for me. For 15 dollars maybe try looking for something cheaper first.

    These actually work and are needed for any FPS game. The help you aim faster with more control. I found little benefit having them on my left stick as most games, the left stick is for running/moving. I actually bought one package and put one knob on one controller and then the other knob on my second controller for friends/backup.

    My son has been in the Fortnite crazed world and said he needed a new controller or something to put on top of his buttons. We came to Best Buy and this is what we left with. They attached easily to his existing controller and he says his fingers don’t slip which make him feel like he can move faster. More affordable than buying a new controller!

    i tried using both sticks at the same time, but playing games that require a lot of movement tend to cause my thumbs to touch when i bring the sticks close together. not a fault of the product, but just to know in case you have big thumbs. if u do have big thumbs get the model with a shorter left analog stick or just rock this one with only the right stick.

    So I bought these thumb sticks and they are great our use one on the left side of the analog controller because I have big hands so my thumbs never touch so I’ve got to thumb sticks two controllers and one on each controller really works for me I tried it with both but they get in the way so I just use one thumb stick on each

    Just not what I was looking for

    I bought these to play MLB THe Show '19, and well, just not the best thing to use on the PS4 controller. First, I was not aware there are different thumb-sticks for different games. That is on me. Once I got them on, they felt too tall. Then, once they came off, they kept coming off, over and over again.

    I'd read a lot of positive reviews of these, and questioned if they were really all that helpful. I gave them a shot though, and I'm so glad I did! I was really surprised at how much extending the length of the joysticks could improve my accuracy in a FPS. I had to mess with the sensitivity settings a bit to dial it in, but I certainly noticed an improvement.

    Adding KontrolFreeks to my PS4 controller has really helped my game! It’s not going to give you extra skill and KontrolFreek never claims to do so. It does however give you better accuracy and precision when using them, which is what they’re made for. If you want some extra accuracy in your game then I definitely recommend getting a set.

    Purchased these on sale to give them a try. They do help make your joystick movements a bit more precise but they do take some getting used to. The ones I got were almost too tall so if I buy another set i'll probably get the medium height. Super easy install and they stay in place with no issues.

    At first, these felt a bit uncomfortable, but after getting used to them, my aim in some FPS games has improved. Sometimes I just use one, depending on the game, since it can be easier to move my character at times. Overall, I definitely recommend these!

    Bought these just to try out because I mainly play sports games and these did not disappoint! They also work great on games like Days Gone! Super happy with this purchase & needless to say I’m glad I purchased them because I never knew how much of a difference they would make!

    Horrible grips

    Bought them and will be returning them. I really don’t like that they are big plastic grips that clip onto your thumb sticks. Prefer the original grips that are actual gel grips you put directly onto your thumb stick. I work in the gaming industry and these grips will not protect your controller thumb sticks but rather will ruin them faster.

    These are amazing thumbsticks. At first i did not know how to use them and i almost tore them up trying to figure out how to appropriately apply them to the controller analog stick but i figured out how to do it by just putting them on the top of the analog stick. Thanks best buy for having those available to buy.

    I saw videos online on how this product can help you a lot with shooting games and i decided to give it a shot. Super easy to install and you can swap it to any controller in seconds. It's a little weird to get use to it at the beginning, but after you do; it's amazing.! Overall, I highly recommend this product!

    If you are an active gamer like me, these have changed my gaming life for the better. I am going to buy another one for my other controller. The only issue is if you press too hard on the sides it will come off, my solution was to super glue it as I do not intend to resell my controllers anyways.
