    How Hard do you play?!

    Personally, my only flaw that I can point out about the is the physical grip itself. They don't give much of a "rubber" feel as far as grip goes but they work very well. A lot of people say they pop off a lot but i have never had an issue with them and I am on Destiny for 2-7+hours at a time per day. I have a friend who had issues with them popping off and we came to the conclusion that the original rubber analog was worn down (bout 6months worth) and he plays rough enough to hear over headset. He did superglue them an they work perfect but before that we tested them on my set and didn't have a single issue. They reduce the distance for L3\R3 drastically to a mere "tap" and make for quicker lateral/vertical movements.

    I wouldn't call myself a competitive gamer at all. I play for the fun, but I don't like the inconveniences of slipping off of my control sticks. Something that I didn't notice until I stated reading reviews of the original PS4 controller. I read these help with your precision in FPS games. I will say that is true in Destiny, I have yet to try it out in COD: AW. I've also read that these sticks come off easily, I have had these now for about 2 months, I've have played through some pretty frustrating games and these have still not come off. They are great, but one thing that's odd is that its hard to sprint when the sprinting is mapped to one of the control sticks. I am contemplating trying to play with a stick on R3 and using a kontrol freak cap on the other.

    Comfort yes. Enhanced performance, NO!!

    The fact these extenders provided a nice boost to the comfort level is why i gave it 3 stars. However, the whole "guaranteed improvement to accuracy/performance" is a joke. I tried them out on BF4 and Hardline and while they felt nice, there were several instances where one or both would pop off mid-session or where it feels awkward(mainly in close quarters situations for me). I have read numerous reviews saying the same problem so i know its not just me. The whole thing feels a bit gimmicky to me, basically another way to make money off of us gamers. I returned these after about 15hrs of use, dont recommend based on quality of product and the fact they dont live up to the "guarantees".

    I've been looking for KontrolFreeks for my PS4. I was worried after reading reviews about them slipping, but got them anyway to try them out. I'm SO glad I did! I don't know what people are talking about with the "slipping" thing. Mine never slip! I'm rough on controllers, too. (I stream on Twitch.TV twice a day & game on my own.) Since I started using them, my accuracy has improved A TON! It took just 2 multi-player matches of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare to get used to them. Now I don't know what I'd do without them! They'll help in any game you play; from Minecraft to Battlefield 4. I highly recommend this product!

    Good add-on for FPS gaming

    This is a nice add on for FPS gaming. It doesn't improve your game very much, but over-time you will notice the difference in accuracy. Pros - better grip - more accuracy - different options available Cons - expensive: these are well designed small plastic add on. I feel that these are over-priced. so they could include 2 sets in one box. - once you get used to these, its really tough to play without these attachments - sometimes thumbs hurts, but that could be just due to playing for hours and not because of these add-ons Also, after 10 months of usage, left thumb stick attachment broke off.

    Quick and Cheap Fix, but not the best.

    I had to buy this product because the texture on the analog sticks on my PS4 controller was coming off. I like these analog stick extenders for my PS4 controller because it makes the controller fit better in the hand for FPS games. The only 2 problems I have with this product is the color (white only) and sometimes when playing FPS games the extender popped off when pressing hard the edge of the extender to make precision movements in the game. So it you press hard on you controllers when playing games then I recommend you getting a custom controller with extended analog stick.

    Good grips

    They are great for FPS(First Person Shooters). The extenders provide great grip and range of motion but i do not recommend for people with small hands like myself. Felt a little awkward because my thumbs were extended the entire time while using them. I couldnt find a good resting position but it could be the total opposite for others with bigger hands. Other than that they did what they were supposed to.

    If you compare the extenders with the original analog stick, you will realize it is very smooth and sensitive. It will DEFINITLY improve your accuracy in fps and works well and feels normal with any game, such as madden or fifa,etc. You have to get use to them for a little bit for the improved accuracy to take effect. The only issue is that the grip is not great and the curvature of the extender makes up for the grip by the grooves of the skull, but not amazing and I can see it wearing down in 6 months if you aggressively use them.

    These little things are great for call of duty multiplayer....it requires less muscle input to move the joystick with the kontrol freaks so my hand and wrist don't cramp and I can play long because of that...also there are 3 different lengths these come in, I bought the tallest ones because of the comfort I mentioned...great buy...I play on a ps4 console but these fit my xbox360 controller as well...they do come off if you push them too hard from the sides but after your thumbs get used to them it shouldn't happen...hope this helps future buys

    Great accessory for the avid gamer

    This item actually lives up to the expectation that it advertises and what I hoped for. It provides and nice secure grip to the controller during frantic matches and also provides a nice grip for my thumb which is super important. It's durability is holding up so far , as I've had mine for about month now. The design is great looking and feels in the proper place for a gaming accessory. One issue I have is that they're white, not a good color if you snack while gaming as they will eventually get dirty and show it early. Other than that great product.

    Great Performance and Protection

    I originally purchased these when I got a coupon, but I would buy them again in a heartbeat. These little silicon extenders just snap right on and your ready to go. Nice grip and protection. Some other users mentioned that the knobs come off- and to keep them in place they reccomend super glueing them to the controller, however I have had no problems. They stay in place! As far as gaming performance, it is not a great improvement, but I am getting more sensitivity. They are more comfortable now.

    KontrolFreeks!

    I absolutely love KontrolFreeks for gaming, mainly Call of Duty, and I used to have to order them online, but now Best Buy carries them locally and at a great price! The product is great, and they fit perfectly on my PS4 controller, and if I had to put a number on it, I'd say these things improve my aim about 15-20%, because with the extra length that they put on the joystick, it allows for a lot more in between aiming on high sensitivity, which is great for long shots or sniping!

    I consider my video game skill level to be about average. I'm not a diehard gamer, but my addiction to first-person shooters drove me to purchase these peices of plastic with rubber on top. They allow you to maximize your look sensitivity, but I wouldn't consider them a necessity. Don't get me wrong, they definitely helped me perform at a higher level, but I think a more reasonable price of about five to seven dollars would be a more fitting value.

    Good Grip and Control

    I originally wanted to add more grip for the thumb sticks on my PS4 controller. These thumb stick grips also extend the thumb sticks higher, which I thought was interesting. While they do add comfortable grip, they also add leverage and control on your thumb sticks which help with very technical movement in games. Overall they have helped my gaming performance, which is appreciated, so overall it's a good product.

    I bought these more out of curiosity than anything. The longer stick let's you either crank up the sensitivity on your game and still make small movements, or keep it at a normal level and get quite a but more accuracy. Very comfy to use. And they just snap over your sticks so it's pretty easy to switch them when your controller dies. I wouldn't pay much more for them but I'm glad I got them.

    The grips help aim but falls off

    If you'd like higher accuracy then this is the accessory for your PS4 controller. Unfortunately, the higher accuracy also comes with negative issues such as the grips tearing open the rubber of your PS4 analog buttons. Then the entire thing won't stay on for long because the rubber is ripped and you'll have to purchase a new PS4 controller or do controller surgery to replace the rubber contacts.

    If you are a fan of first person shooters than these are great. They provide more control and better accuracy. I suggest they are only purchased for the hardcore gamer. If you are casual and just having a good time then don't worry about it they will be a waste of money, but if you consider yourself a competitive player trying to do better than you did before than these are the purchase for you.

    If you have small hands and short fingers these are not for you. But if you have average to large hands you will love these. They make playing smoother and to me my fingers do not feel as beat upon because it is easier to punch down the buttons. I have used these with several types of games from first person shooters to MGP role playing games.

    Phantoms have a nice design but dont expect these to work for your controller if the rubber is tearing off. I bought these to replace the rubber but these go over the rubber snuggly. Will not work with out the rubber. Othrwise theyre fps freeks and they do what they advertise, you will need to get used to them if you havent tried them before.
