I'm satisfied. The ps4 controller thumb sticks are hard plastic. After a couple games of Fifa they get sweaty and slippery. My thumbs start to hurt from gripping them harder.

The kelex grips are soft and rubbery, so grip is much improved. No slipperiness issues in a game session. Improves my precision too.

The pack comes with a 4 pair of grips in low and high height and convex or concave curve. I like the concave low, but ymmv.

A little tricky to put on. What worked for me was to roll back the rubber lip, then once the grip is positioned on the stick, roll the lip down, like putting on a... umm never mind. There's no adhesive or anything, so you can remove them at any time with no damage to the controller.

These grips were a couple bucks more than other options, but worth is as they are exactly what I was looking for.

My PS4 analog sticks were pealing off and I need to prevent further damage so I bought these. The are great! My main concern before buying them was if they were going to be loose and slippery, but they aren't. When the grips are on the controller they don't move and you have to deliberately try to spin the grips to make them move, and even then there is a lot of resistance preventing that. The tall ones are nice, my first game of CoD Ghosts I went 25 in 1 lol. But for the tall ones the bottom part of the grips hit the rim of the plastic part of the controller causing the analog to not move as far as it should. That is my only complaint, other then that it is worth your money.

I normally never order thumb grips for my controllers. This has been my first exception. While the stock grips are OK they rub and peel off very easily. I am not a hardcore gamer by any means. The most I've played my PS4 is probably a TOTAL of 24 hours since I received it launch day and the right thumb stick was peeling off. I bought these to put a new one over it. I am using the short bumpy one on the right stick and it works great!

These feel great! Been playing Watch Dogs with these and I like them a lot. I use the concave ones - one short and one raised. The raised ones work like FPS Freeks but feel better because they are rubber instead of hard plastic, and also won't make small scratches on the D-pad/face button areas like FPS Freeks do. Recommended.

I just got these thumb grips today and I have been messing around with them for a few hours, seeing which ones I like best. All I can say is that this variety pack of thumb grips KILLS KontrolFreaks grips. You get 5 different sets for cheaper than one set of KontrolFreaks. Also, the KontrolFreaks grips clip on to the joysticks, causing the material to wear down where the clips have been placed, ruining the original joysticks. Each one of these grips seems perfect for different situations and different games. I will never go back to using stock joysticks with no thumb attachments. I recommend this product to anyone browsing for the best buy. 5 stars

Edit: The big ones are indeed difficult to put on so make sure not to break your analog stick. On a positive note, even the big ones do not interfere whatsoever with the range of motion and do not hit the bumpers holding the analog stick in place.
THE BEST WAY TO PUT THEM ON is to get one side on and then twist the grip around and it will cover all sides. Trust me :) Good buy

Really nice, but I just noticed that the texture is wearing off. Like the tread on a tire, I mean. The grips have some raised lines that surrounds the circumference, and a raised triangular patters in the center that resembles a fall out shelter symbol but has 4 triangles. Anyway they are good but it hasn't been too long and one set is about spent. I took a 2 month vacation and only took one controller,and that thumb directional stick is wore out pretty much. well they were still the best feeling thumb stick grips going, I just thought it was a one time purchase.

I would not recommend. They are very hard to get on. Then when you do, they do not feel good at all. The tall ones are just dumb, as I don't see why anyone would use them. The short and med are ok height. But the design on the tops are not good. They are rough and hurt my thumb. Also, I could not get as precise movement as I needed, or can without the grips.

I own a PS4 so since I'm used to the PS3 sensitive joysticks I had trouble getting a precise aim in PS4 first person shooter games. I bought Advanced Warfare & I was getting high score streaks nearly every match & I'm terrible lol. There are pairs of large,medium & small grips. My favorites are the medium grips because they are so comfortable but yeah overall these I highly recommend to any gamer looking to improve their accuracy. 5 stars!

These come in s variety of sizes from minimal to about an inch raise from the joystick. The fit is VERY snug, so it can be mildly tricky to get on. Once you do they feel great, and are cheaper than Kontrol Freeks. Not only that, but KF scratched up my controller bc of the hard plastic, and these won't.

Comfort and efficiency are important to me when I'm playing competitively, these are a great buy: An easy 5 stars for the variety and quality for your money, but I'll explain in depth how each of these feel to help you all decide if these are for you.

First off, I favor the feel of the Dualshock 3 thumbsticks over the DS4 thumbsticks: with the ds3, regardless of my thumb orientation, I have the same grip at all times and never had to worry about slipping or the stick wearing down. I often use the palm-side knuckle of my thumb in addition to the tip of my thumb.

There is one pair of short, convex thumbgrips that are the closest out of the bunch to the DS3 thumbsticks, but still a bit different: they are a few mm larger in diameter, and exhibit a flatter top-most surface with a sharper curve near the edges (when I place my thumb on top, I touch more surface area of this thumbgrip compared to a ds3 thumbstick). The texture on this thumbgrip is like that of the back of some toothbrushes that have a textured surface for scrubbing your tongue. I installed this pair easiest by sort of stretching it over the top like you would put a water balloon on a faucet to fill it. I'll probably be using these most often.

There are 2 pairs of medium-height, concave thumbgrips that are about the same shape with a difference in texture on top. These 2 pairs and the larger ones are made with more material, and are harder. The bottom lip is harder, and the easiest way to install these 2 pairs is to put one side of the lip over the edge of the ds4 thumbstick, and begin to rotate the grip over the stick, applying a bit of downward pressure. They feel very sturdy and have a nice surface, but a bit too cylindrical for my taste, as I like to use more than just the tip of my thumb.

Finally, the 2 pairs of tall, concave thumbgrips: they are quite thick and massive enough to affect the centering force of the thumbstick. These might function well for any games that could benefit by using the thumbstick as an arcade-style joystick, using two or three fingers to hold a single stick. These go on and come off the same way as the medium size ones. If I ever used these in a fps or 3rd person shooter situation, it would probably only be on the left stick, for a different aiming feel (would be interesting with sniping I bet). The bottom lip of these appear to be the same as the mediums, but they are ever-so-slightly different: these larger thumbgips touch the controller surface before the sticks do, but only by a little bit; hitting the joystick constraint just feels a bit softer, it doesn't totally inhibit the sticks full range of motion.

I would recommend these to those that are looking for quite a variety of quality grips at a low price. I haven't had time to get into really heavy gameplay yet, I may alter my review to reflect their durability and what not in the future.
