    Instant control boost!

    These things are great! Use any length of Kontrolfreek's and your game will show noticeable improvement in handling of both aim and motion. In particular, this pack is great because it has 2 (two) pairs: Short/convex in green, and high/concave in black. I, as most (but not all) gamers tend to do when using Kontrolfreek's is to place a "short" on the left thumbstick (motion), and a long one on the right thumbstick (aiming). This pack seems to be the best introduction to new Kontrolfreek users and those who are less interested in Feel vs. Function. There are several different versions for feel and customization. Until you know what you want, this is the perfect point to start.

    Good inexpensive way to keep competitive.

    From using these a little over a month I gotta say these things are pretty nice. They're a cheap way to customize your controller to your liking and get that extra edge over your friends. Although from my personal experience they really don't do anything to improve gaming performance. I guess anybody who thinks they have something that makes them play better will feel better about their game anyway. I always say feel good play good and these deff fit that criteria.

    For serious gamers

    I bought these to try them out and not really knowing anything about them. I have larger hands and they actually make the controller feel more natural. I feel like the added length to the thumb sticks improves leverage significantly, which reduces the effort to press them down. I have had less hand strain because of it. I ended up super gluing them to the sticks because I had 1 pop off during game play from time to time, but no issues since gluing. I like the feel of the stickier surface which leads to more precision. So far I am definitely impressed.

    One of the best combo packs from KontrolFreek!

    I absolutely love this combo pack! The domed CQC Signatures are best used on the left analog stick for better overall control and grip. The Classics are best used on the right analog stick for better accuracy and control. This is a combo that can't be beat; I'm an avid player of Destiny and have noticed improvement to my KD ratio in just the first few hours. Highly recommended for serious players and also enthusiasts.

    Gamer Experiment, Mixed Results.

    This was an experiment that my brother and I tried. It got mixed results. My aim is more responsive and sensitive while gaming, but my thumb started to get carpal tunnel. If you have monster sized hands (or ones slightly bigger ones than mine) I would suggest it. But if you have a gamer wife with smaller hands than your own and keeps taking the stick extenders off thereby skewing your controlled scientific data in the process, maybe you should try something else. Yoga maybe? Don't know, but whatever makes you happy. TL;DR Meh.

    Bad review on a used product received only.

    I was very disappointed when I received this controller accessory. It was purchased as a Christmas gift for my nephew and the box it was not only mangled but the clearly already opened and maybe used. It was not damaged from the shipment as it was well protected in a bubble wrapped bag they just sent it that way. I am returning today but again it was purchased as a gift so review is not on the product itself but just so disappointed in this purchase.

    Quality feel and look provide extra space for your thumbs to hold onto the analog sticks of your controller and protects the delicate material of the thumbsticks on your console controller who wants to replace old torn thumbsticks or worse yet buy completely new controllers preserve them with these kontrolfreek thumbstick covers

    Good choice for precision and comfort

    These are awesome, so much more comfortable than the standard joysticks that are short and offer a small range of motion. These thumb pads are great for making small movements more precise and giving you the comfort for longer gaming sessions. Best for adult hand sizes. Only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because it's pricey for what you're really getting- some rubber glued to plastic.

    I was skeptical, but these were on sale for $11 for I figured I'd give them a try. Very uncomfortable for the first hour or so, but once I adjusted they really do help---you should temper your expectations, if you're bad these won't make you better. However, I feel a like my aim has improved and that I'm better able to make more fine adjustments with the sticks.

    I LOVE having covers on my joysticks and these feel amazing! Because they have good grip you don't have to press hard to have good control which is less fatiguing over time. I haven't actually tried the extenders yet but they seem helpful for fps games (improved accuracy). The only problem I could see would be pressing the X and A buttons quickly with it on.

    I've been using these for a few years now, on both XBox 360 and Playstation 4, and can't imagine going back to standard sticks. Although often advertised for use in competitive shooters, they enhance the ergonomics of the controller for all games. Just make sure you get the right ones, as the stick radii are different between 360 and PS4.

    Functionality wise these do exactly what they advertise. I've found (for me) that they're great for racing games where i want smoother motion but for fighting and FPS the extra distance is awkward and i end up moving my hand off the controller. If you play racing games with a standard controller I'd definitely recommend these.

    I wanted something to give a little more height to the xbox ones thumbsticks. I found the green extenders in this pack the perfect height. I wish they sold them by themselves because the black second set are far to long for my comfort. This is the third set I've bought over the years, I always seem to want them on every controller.

    I have large hands and have some trouble with the smaller thumb sticks on both the xbox one and the playstation 4. Since I've had these I haven't been able to go back to using the regular sticks. I love having so much surface space. My aim has improved greatly and the overall feel is very comfortable.

    Takes a while to get used to. The concept is that it makes your thumb sticks longer increasing accuracy. You can turn up sensativity. If you cannot afford an elite controller this may help. However you need to be able to set dead zones to take advantage of this which can only be done on an elite controller.

    Outstanding product not only for the precision gameplay but for the added protection these provide your expensive controllers. If you've ever been turned down for a trade in due to controller wear, you know what I'm talking a bout... Will continue to purchase these over and over!

    Controller Extenders

    I decided to give these a try to see if they help. The extenders have a larger diameter so it feels more comfortable to use. The tacky feel makes it harder for my thumbs to slip off. The extenders help give more precise control when driving or shooting.

    I had bought the white kontrol freaks before and they had become worn out. I bought these as a replacement, but I found that the orange ones don't extend as far. The black ones extend as far as the white ones, but tend to fall off if I push on them too hard.

    These thumbstick extenders are great for comfort and precision and I cannot recommend them more. Whether you're a hardcore gamer or someone who is looking for more comfort, these thumbstick extenders are worth the price!

    They work for some people, they didn't work for me. I didn't care for having an extra inch on my joysticks, it made it harder to do any CQC in CoD. My buddies can wreck some dudes while using these... they just are not for everyone.
