    Works But....

    These do work, I am a PC gamer and did not grow up with an xbox controller in my mouth so I got this and it works ok, game performance improved tremendously however if you move the "hat" too far or push on it too hard to the side they pop off and then you are in a pickle. I have since upgraded to the xbox elite controller and it comes with taller "hats" and is a god send! If you can afford it skip these and get the elite controller, if not these will work for you but be careful no to push them too hard to the side or they pop off.

    Better control with higher sensitivity

    I wouldn’t say this improves accuracy necessarily. The increase of the stick height does allow me to play on a higher sensitivity though without losing control. A higher sensitivity helps to turn faster in those situations where someone’s behind you and you need to snap on-target faster. I also find my thumb sliding off much less than the stock controller stick, so it helps that I don’t have to reposition it all the time. Overall, I don’t think it’s worth the price unless you get it on-sale.

    I use one of these on my right thumb stick, increase sensitivity, and my aim is greatly improved. My sniping game is now on point. I use a shorter extender on the left stick (from same company); with both I can play marathon FN sessions without any discomfort from the concave thumbstick tops of the base controller. They clip on and off easily. Get yourself a couple of pairs and earn more kills!

    Never play shooters without these

    These thumbsticks will help with your game especially with shooters which is what I mainly play. Other games you don't necessarily need them, but I leave them on because I'm so used to them. The only problem for me is that I only want the right stick to be longer so I bought the classic cqc thumbsticks for the left one. That's fine though because they don't last forever so I have an extra set for later.

    Ive been searching for a great headset that had great sound and bass for my xbox one X. Im use the elite 800 for my ps4pro and was looking for something with same quality of sound. I was blown away by how much better it sounded compared to the 800p. The bass bumps and the highs are great. Add the fact you get Dolby Atmos free with the set. And man let me tell you, the dolby atmos sound is insane. So worth it!

    I bought these because i wanted some extra control when playing NHL 19. Aside from adding a huge grip surface, these extend the stick / angle so you have more control. I haven't taken them off since, and it actually feels weird to use a controller with out them. The only reason i gave these 4 stars is if u rage and push up hard on the stick they sometimes pop off.

    Infernos are OK, but CqC are better.

    These grips do give you accurate aiming I have to say that. The thing is, if you have to make a quick 180 or 90 degree turn and you shoot someone quickly, I guarantee you your shot will be off. I am returning these this weekend because of that. If your aiming at long ranges, these thumb grips are good. These are not good for quick turn around shots in battlefield. These grips are also comfortable. Thats why I gave it a 3 star.

    I wasn't sure if these would work or would feel comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised. I have large hands so the added height to the thumb sticks makes it feel more comfortable to play. But the adverse is that if you play first person shooters that also means that your right thumb is further from the buttons. Just something to consider.

    I was skeptical of these at first but for $15 I figured I wouldn't be missing out on much if they were a gimmick. They sit on top of the joysticks and pretty much double their height, which was weird at first. After a couple of days playing with them I was able to hone in my fps precision aiming to a level I hadn't thought possible. I highly recommend these.

    To be honest I had a different design from KontrolFreek and they worked great. So great that I wore the grip/tackiness off them. These suck. They don't feel as good, aren't as grippy, and they come off at random times during play. They were on sale and I still feel like I overpaid. Stay away from this design.

    I bought this as a semi-impulse item. I needed new grips on my controller but figured I would give these a shot instead. It took a little getting used to but now it would be weird to play without them. The rubber seems to wear fast but they've held up nicely so it may just be wear from breaking in, rather than an overall flaw in the product.

    Ever wanted to control your Xbox without having to pick a controller up everytime ? We this is the product for you. I purchased online it arrived early the next day, just in time to do some major Netflix binge watching. Thank you Best Buy.

    Bought this for call of duty black ops 4. I was new to call of duty and struggled with my aim. These kontrolfreeks took my gaming to another level. Not only did my kd ratio increase, my overall control over the analog is amazing.

    Control freaks are the best and a set for each of my controllers and some extra cause you know I have animals that like to chew on them. But in a seriousness they are amazing allows for more comfortable game play and accuracy.

    This was my first time trying out KontrolFreeks, and I must say I am very impressed! They definitely do help with accuracy and control in First Person Shooters. However I do wish this set included: 1 high rise & 1 mid rise (instead of 2 high rise)

    Thumbsticks for better game play

    The product was meh. I felt like I played the same to be honest. If anything, I got a cramp in my thumbs. I don't use it often, I keep it on my backup controller and use it when my primary controller needs charging. I will say it was rather easy to put on and take off.

    Pushing to hard on analog sticks causes “Thumbsticks” to come off during game play. Very annoying. Tried multiple times to use this product and it failed continuously. On the bright side it did make my controller feel much more comfortable on my hands.

    I've owned different models of the FPS Freaks and these are one of my favorites so far. IMO, these stick extenders make the controller more comfortable and also seem to improve my aim/accuracy. I'd recommend them to anyone who loves FPS games.

    These thumbsticks didn't require any effort at all to put on. Just push down, click and we are good to go.My sticks were wearing down a bit from heavy use so I needed a quick resolve. Not only do they work great, they are very affordable.
