    Doesn't stay on

    Good quality product, unfortunately comes off far too often. I bought this in hopes of protecting the left stick of my new controller from being damaged as the rubber coating is notorious for falling apart. I figured the 2nd set could be used for an older PS4 controller where the rubber coating has come off. The extra height of the extended stick takes a bit getting used to. Used playing Uncharted 4. The promise is that extra height gives you more leverage and great accuracy with your aiming. Not sure if it made any difference. What's troubling is during close quarter battles where you are thrashing the stick the Kontrol Freek simply doesn't stay attached. Also, with my older controller with the damaged left stick, it has an even more difficult time staying on - it really needs the rubber in tact to have enough surface area to stay on. If you're thinking about covering the damaged rubber sticks it won't stay on to be effective. You may be able to get away with it if the game you're playing isn't very action-packed. But for games where quick movement is necessary, these just won't cut it. I bought Gel Tabs and they stick on better, they do come off every once in a while but better than these.

    From reading many reviews before using my playstation and its controllers i have learned the quality of the controls joysticks were bad. I did not want to chance it and so i went on a bought this pack to get a better bang for my buck. PEOPLE BUYING THESE HAVE TO REALIZE IF YOUR CONTROLLERS JOYSTICKSARE WORN DOWN THESE WILL NOT WORK. That is why i bought them and put them on before i even played it the first time. Even with that though one of the green pad seem to not have such a great grip on the joystick so it will spin as you play. Not a big deal and doesnt pop off the joystick as i have read others do but still quality should be better. If these tend to pop off your joystick you must be a rough player im definitely not one and still enjoy my call of duty online play. It does help out too.

    Pay attention to pads! QC needs to be improved, it took 3 returns to finally find a good set of green pads. The first set had a flatspot in the middle of one pad, the second set had a lump off-center on one pad, and my fingertips could feel the imperfections immediately. I like the height, shape, and material, but not the "KF" design on the pad (would prefer symmetry) . I ended up turning them so the F faces up, but I also had to sand down some of the clips because they were contacting the controller at extreme movements. +Never had them pop-off the controller. Larger diameter feels nicer on my thumbs over the original sticks. Material on the greens feel durable. A symmetrical design in this height, material, and color sold as an individual set would be 4-5 stars.

    These are quite the accessory popped them on and felt a huge difference. My thumbs didn't hurt after hours of gaming. My aim on Black Ops 3 got better. I was able to use a higher sensitivity since these give you much more control of the analog stick.. I don't give them 5 starts because the design is slightly weak. If you game a lot and get in intense situations on the game these move around at times they don't stay perfectly still on the stick your able to twist them around just by grabbing it with small force. The design should be perfect to where they are still and non-twist-able. Has only happened twice though not a major problem... Try getting them on sale like I did they are worth it.

    Great for FPS games, still useful for others.

    What's great about this is that it gives you two pairs of extenders, one long and one short, so you can customize your setup for the way you play. When I play an FPS like Destiny, I tend to favor longer range weapons that benefit from more precision aiming, but less precision when moving my character. Short extender on the left stick, long one on the right, and I'm good to go. If you prefer more close-quarters type stuff, slap on two short extenders, and you get a smaller sensitivity increase better for face-to-face engagements. It's gotten to the point where I hate using my controller without them. :)

    First off I'd like to say that these will not automatically turn you into a pro CoD player. BUT I'd highly recommend getting these for a few reasons. 1. They prevent the rubber on your thumbsticks from wearing down, so instead of having to buy a whole new controller when the rubber is gone, you can just buy some new Kontrol Freeks for much cheaper. 2. They are a lot more grippy then the normal thumbsticks. 3. They are bigger than the normal thumbsticks. 4. They are more comfy than the normal thumbsticks. The Signature (green) ones are great because they're low profile so they don't take a lot of time to get used to.

    Good way to preserve your PS4 controller

    These external knobs fit snuggly on the PS4 controller analog sticks. They are great for a couple of reasons... 1) They will preserve the rubber on the analogs. These analogs have a factory rubber coating on the them, but they peel away from regular usage. By applying these knobs, it prevents the problem, in turn saving your PS4 controller. 2) These knobs provide a more responsive action in terms of your gameplay (in my opinion). Crosshairs seem to move more precisely, racing cars seem to turn a little bettter etc. As a hardcore gamer, I would definitely recommend KontrolFreak knobs.

    Must have for all Sony PS4 controllers

    The factory controller for the PS4 is a great design and VERY comfortable to hold, except for the shoddy quality of the 2 joysticks, which many people have reported the rubber coating starts falling apart very quickly after only a few dozen hours of use. Not only does this prevent that from happening, but it also allows for more precise movements with each joystick since it allows for slower and longer movement of each stick. Highly recommend this for anyone that owns a PS4 and plans to use it more than 20 hours during the course of owning the system.

    waste of money

    Do not waste your money on this. Even though they help my fingers from slipping off the analog sticks they pop right off while in use. This product is garbage and your better off buying the xbox one analog sticks and putting them in your ps4 controller. The xbox one analog sticks are longer then ps4 sticks and fit perfectly in the ps4 controller. Yes you have to take the controller apart and be careful not to break it but its worth it if your tired of tour fingers slipping off the ps4 sticks.

    Nice Option

    Nice option to get you through deteriorating controller controls. The only thing that could be better would be a clearer set of directions. If the control buttons would actually sit flush on the removed control joysticks that would be an even better option too. But other than that, the current product offered is nice to help you get to one point without having to buy new controllers until you're ready or have saved enough money(child) or conned mom and dad into buying you a new controller.

    I was skeptical but these stick extenders do help me to be more precise and accurate in my aiming and movement. I have had the taller one of them snap off a couple of times when I was in the midst of a frantic situation - I wish there was a better way of attaching them. Also, these are designed to fit over the silicon grip caps the PS4 controller comes with. If those have torn off (a known problem with the PS4 controller) you will have to replace them before the KontrolFreaks will fit.

    Great grip to your game

    I mainly play FPS such as Call of Duty and I thought at first that these would not improve my game at all. I bought the PS4 edition since I knew that they would fit on my Xbox 360 thumb sticks. It took me one match to get used to these. I did have to lower my sensitivity by one but overall, a great accessory, I definitely reccomend the CQC Signatures (green ones) for fps and the classics (black ones) for people that want more height and grip in serious gunfights.

    These are great, i experimented with the different heights of both of the sticks and i like the shorter greeen one, i primary got these to improve aiming on call of duty, so i just have a kontrol freek on the right stick only. i got these for FPS but i just leave them on as i am soo use to them and i can control alot better, you should def try them out if you want to improve your aiming skills on first person shooter, pros use these

    I bought these to see if they would help with my gameplay. I play mostly FPS shooters (destiny, call of duty, etcetera). It took about a day to get accustomed to how they feel but once I got the feel of them, my gameplay improved greatly. If you want to become a better shooter in FPS games, you need every advantage you can get. These definitely help those who want a competitive edge. I'm happy I purchased this product.

    I was skeptical at first but after using these I wish I had bought them sooner. They work exactly as advertised. I am always one of the top 3 players every match I play online and my K/D ratio has seen a significant increase. Aiming is super precise now with my look sensitivity maxed. I use the shorter green one on the left joystick and the taller black one on the right as I have found that to be the best combo for moving/aiming/comfort.

    Overall I'm very happy with my purchase. Sure they could be a little cheaper because they are a little on the pricy side. But they do work well for an FPS game. The extended black ones are great, the short green ones are not though. But it's all good, I bought them for the extended ones anyways and I think it is a great product. I'm not going to say that my KD improved or anything, but it does allow you to target faster which is nice.

    I was very excited about these extenders, as I read many reviews about the increase in gaming performance. I am an avid destiny player and was hoping these would help my sniping. Long story short, they are very comfortable, they do help a little but not a ton. Not worth $25 dollars but if you don't mind over paying by 10 bucks and you want more comfortable thumb sticks with a minor gaming improvement, these are for you.

    Does not work on damaged analog johsticks

    • My Best Buy® Elite Member

    All ps4 controllers are very bad on their analog joysticks. The material used to cover those is broken in a few months. so i bought this to put on those damaged joysticks but it doesn fit on the analog joystick if it is already damaged, this is something designers should think about to improve this accessory. otherwise it is useless...see the picture. I cannot plug the accessory on the left analog stick.

    First time trying anything like this! After hearing that it helps with precision I looked more into them. But in reality I bought them because I have big hands and the extended analogs helps me better grab the controller. Also because I hear the analog sticks on the ps4 wear out I didn't want that to happen and these are a good way of keeping them good. They're worth the price!

    Originally bought the product because my son bit through the rubber on one of my joysticks. But after using the product for a month or so I've become so used to having them that when I bought my new controller earlier this month I wound up using the control freaks on that controller as well. Great product gives excellent grip and doesn't seem to wear down cretin ally not as fast as the ps4 rubber.
