    A bit expensive but....

    As the title indicates, Kontrol Freeks are expensive for what they are. They literally are analog stick extenders which allow you to make smaller movements more effectively. Keeping that in mind, the basic idea is that a player should play with a higher sensitivity to get more accuracy from what their fingers are actually doing. For me, it works. At this point, I can't aim without them. I wouldn't say they make you better but some people, like myself, come from PC and feel that aiming with analog sticks can be sluggish and counterintuitive. If you feel that way, these may help. There are various different ones with different lengths. These Snipr ones are probably the longest and ideally are made for long range engagements where small and precise movements are essential. Think of your play style and choose based on length primarily and then on design. I can safely say that using Snipr length sticks on CQB maps and games doesn't cripple me but there are times I feel too responsive. They are expensive for what they are; two little extentions to add to your analog sticks, but I've noticed the difference and can't play the same without them. They will take some getting used to but once you do, you'll struggle to go back.

    I have small hands and short fingers so when i play videogames my thumbs start to hurt really badly. Especially when I'm playing for hours on end. However my bf got the for me for shooting games and I love them. It puts less strain on my fingers and I can now play for a longer period of time without the pain. The support and grip also makes it easier for me to play on the ps4.

    Easy to install (just push them on your joystick). Nice grip, and I feel they improve your gaming than with the shorter joystick you normally use. I just keep them on and use them for everything. I've had this product for about two months now and haven't noticed them doing any damage to the PS4 controller or have had the nubs wear off.

    Glad I bought these joystick extenders. The Freek Snipr Analog Stick extenders help keep my thumbs from getting numb during extended playing and also allow me greater control of the game I am playing. Whether playing NHL 16 or Drake Uncharted or COD, these extenders help me to keep up with my son and improve my proficiency in game-play!!

    I’ve been using kontrol freeks for years now, I’m glad I can go to Best Buy, and purchase them whenever in need. This product increases your aim in games such as call of duty, overwatch, and any other first person shooter. I would definitely recommend especially if you’re a serious gamer.

    I'm mainly an Xbox player so getting used to the ds4 is tricky. I thought these would help since I have big hands and the ds4 thumb sticks are so close. It's taking a bit to get used to them but I'm starting to like them. Good for sniping in fps games like Destiny and Battlefield.

    While I did enjoy the grip, I had trouble keeping the grip connected to analog stick... I don't try to crush my controller, yet with the mild force I put on the analog constantly unclipped the extender... Maybe its because how tall it is. I had to return it.

    Not much to say except that this works great and that it's used every day and night by my husband and a little by me. this was mainly purchased for my husband so that he could have better use of his controller for gaming. Thank you.

    I am new to the PS4 and bought these not knowing what they do. I guess they made using the sticks a little easier, but I put too much pressure and they fell off time to time. Once I wasn't as aggressive they stayed on well.

    I returned these because I didn't like how they were convex... I am more of a fan of the concave sticks but everyone likes what they like. If I did like convex I would have kept them because they are comfy as ever.

    I tend to like the taller KF's so these work well. I didn't think I could adjust to the convex tops, but overall it doesn't bother me. Great all around for improving the throw distance of your sticks.

    I mainly play Destiny, but I dabble in other first person shooters, I was surprised by the effect it had on accuracy. I'd say it's about as close as you get to mouse and keyboard on a console.

    I am a huge fps games fan and I cannot stress it enough how much these extended sticks help me be more accurate when sniping. Will always use these for any fps games I play in the future!

    The Kontrol Freak Analog Stick extenders work great for helping to make movements easier with minimal movement. The textured surface keeps your finger from slipping off as easily as well.

    I purchased there's as a replacement to other Kontrol Freaks I've had for three years. These are great for getting that extra edge in fps games, 3.07 k/d after using these!

    they are really comfortable and are great for shooting games but if you give more that light pressure they come off the controller if they would stay on they would get 5 stars easy

    The right stick extender is way to high, distance between end of stick and buttons might as well be a mile, extenders come off too easily and I really do not feel like they help.

    My son wanted these for Christmas to help his game and swears that it does. Great idea for a gift for a kid whose parents can't bear to spend the price for pieces of rubber.

    These things are awesome at first, until you really get into a game. Too much pressure makes the sticks fly right off while playing and screws you all up. I returned them.
