    Playing FPS games like Titanfall and COD, I wanted to improve my game. Read about this from the gaming community. I was looking for the new COD, but they were out, fount this instead and decided to give them a try since I have never used KontrolFreeks before. First, both thumb stick are the same height, they aren't like the new COD version, that the left side is smaller than the right side. Now, I don't know if it's me or what, It does seems crazy, but this things does improve your FPS gaming. Precision and accuracy are improved, they really are, it feel more confortable to play to, since your thumb travel is more easy. I'm not a hardcore gamer, and I feel they have improved my FPS gaming. A little wired at first, but definitely they will improve any gamer's game. A must have for any xbox one user.

    Not bad will help accuracy when aiming

    I recently found out about these and thought I would try them. I was disappointed in that they still lacked a true range of motion feeling for fighting games like Killer Instinct hands down nothing beats a good old fight stick. For any game involving aiming at a target such as FPS etc these help out drastically with more accurate range since you have better control overran gw of motion. Games like Farcry 4, COD etc this will definitely help your aim.... The only downside is eventually they loosen up and will continually pop off the controller.which can make for an annoying gaming experience I guess they could be glued on but only if you want them permanently attached

    PS4 implementation YES. XBOX ONE? So So

    I'm admittedly a Playstation fanboy who caved for the XBox One because of Forza 6 and the Tomb Raider sequel. These 'buttons' are superb when matched with a DualShock4; I will never again pick up a PS controller w/o them. With the XBox One contoller? It's a different story. While the ergonomics of the X1 controller are rather comfortable on their own, these buttons create an unnatural reach that become tiresome and somewhat painful. Do they offer superior precision? Absolutely. But when you game for at least a couple hours on end, you contemplate removing them for longevity's sake

    People either love these or they hate them. I'm on the fence, really. If you've never used these before, they will take some getting use to. They do exactly what they are marketed to do but it all comes down to your personal preference. I found myself taking them off from time to time then decided I was fine with a couple grip covers over the controller's sticks. Best thing to do is buy a set, try them out then either keep em if you like them or return them if you don't. It's that simple. Then come back here to write a review for 25 rewards points.

    Not as good as I thought...

    let me start off by saying that i've been gaming for over 10 years. I love the additional grip that these add to the controller, they feel incredible. Wish all controllers had that grip. What i didn't like about it is how much they stick out, made the controller a bit awkward to have at hand. Makes it harder to hit the buttons quick (reload or switching weapons) which can cost you in close fights. in the end it just comes down the personal preference. It just didn't fit me.

    Pops off. Feels fine.

    Would have given this product a 1 star (poor) rating had I not actually liked the product when they would stay on. I mainly play Halo 5, and found when I was either turning or aiming to hard, the extenders would pop off, and roll onto the ground while playing. Ended up returning them. If you want a cheaper alternative (i.e. provides grip and slight height increase), I recommend "Insignia™ - Analog Stick Covers for Xbox One and Xbox 360 - Black" for $4.99

    Increases overall control and accuracy

    I was skeptical about these at first. They took a little bit to get used to during the first week but now I wouldn't play without them. I only use 1 on the right stick so I was able to put the other one on the second controller for my wife, son, or friends to use when they play. My accuracy improved and blasted my record high 36 kills - 12 deaths in a round of TDM after 3 weeks of using the product. Precise aiming is simply better and easier to maintain.

    So at first I thought these couldn't possibly make a big difference. So I took them home to be proved completely wrong! After getting used to the extended sticks. I found that they do make a big difference as your aim is not flying from one side of the screen to the other. Greatly increases control and accuracy making aiming a lot smoother and a lot easier to pick off moving targets. I lose these I'll cry I can't play without them lol.

    Takes some getting used to

    Nice thumb stick extensions, I'm using them for my Xbox One controller. The length took a bit to get used to and I'm starting to get a small amount of wear on one of them. Maybe white wasn't the best choice since they seem to get dirty pretty easy. I haven't measured my KD to see if it has really improved my accuracy. A good tip is to dial down your sensitivity in the beginning to get used to them, then slowly bring it back up.

    I have used these with the 360 and now use with the one, I was hesitant on the design not being as grippy but they turned out to be just as good as the originals. I am able to play on 8-10 sensitivity on Halo Aniversary and bang out consistent 4 shots. I am 6'2 with big hands and these help me to be more precise and I only use it on right thumb stick.

    White Caps for My Xbox One Control Sticks. Good.

    I got these in white because I have the White Xbox One and Controller. I never have a problem with my sticks breaking but I tend to wear away the rubber grips on top. These help alleviate that wear while giving me tighter controls depending on the game. Putting them on was easy. I need to get another pair if I somehow find another white controller in the wild.

    These were set a little high for my part, unless you have paddle controls to press the Jump or reload buttons, it's a bit of a jump to go from the analog sitick, to the button, and back to the stick. The height does add a nice amount of precision to your aiming, so even without paddles, there's an advantage to having this.

    bought these because it was the first time I had seen a KontrolFreek item at Best Buy. sadly, they were for the Xbox One, but with a little help, I got them to fit my Xbox360 controller. They work great for FPS games and some RPG games I have. but i'm just not feeling comfortable using them for driving games like NFS or Blur.

    I really didnt think adjusting my stick length would help my gaming at all, but I figured Id give it a try. Initially it was a little difficult to make the adjustment because the feel and movement is different. However once you get used to it, it really does make you more accurate and comfortable.

    I bought these to try out on a FPS and the difference is amazing! I really enjoy playing with these since not only do they increase your accuracy, they also provide a better grip on the joystick itself. I have found that if you put one on the left joystick, it helps you with racing games also, like Forza.

    Not very comfortable

    I have fairly large hands and felt that these thumbstick extenders caused me more discomfort than when I didn't use any. Ultimately, I ended up keeping one on the left thumbstick because that felt like a happy middle ground. But I didn't notice much improvement in my ability to play or react faster in COD.

    I never quite understood how a little plastic cap would affect the overall game play ... holy cow does it make a difference for FPS games! at least it has helped me a lot. The only downside is that now the fingers are not in a natural position and my thumbs hurt after playing couple of hours.

    If you play video games and are looking for any kind of edge, here it is! The science is simple... Taller analog stick = less hand movement to move quicker with a wider range of movement enabled. I personally only use one on my right controller stick and leave the left stick small in most fps I play.

    These things are pretty cool. Great for when I'm playing Call of Duty. Take a bit of getting used to, but the extra height increases speed and accuracy of the thumbsticks. The extra grip is nice as well. Snap easily on the analog sticks, and can be removed as well, without falling off while playing.

    For the $15 I paid for them, they are worth a shot. I got them because I have big hands that basically swallow the standard Xbox One controller. I didn't notice any improvements in my gameplay like accuracy or maneuverability, but the controller did become more comfortable to hold than without them.
