My darling husband is a video gamer. He has been since he was a kid. Now at 61 he still plays daily. He loves his game systems especially the Xbox so he was very intrigued and excited to try these Gripmax Close Combat Grips, Made Exclusively for Xbox One Controllers; grip upgrades. These little guys fit very snugly over the existing thumbstick grips and can give new life to the worn out (yes, worn out!) controller thumbsticks.
These grips fit perfectly and stay in place during play and if you use these right away they will protect your actual thumbsticks from getting worn out too quickly. These are a MUCH more cost-effective over brand new controller. These grips add just a slight bit of height to the thumbstick, but not enough to really change your playing style except that DH has a little more leverage on the stick. It’s something you can feel when you play, just that added grip.
The Close Combat Grips are made for games that require quick snap aiming and fast reaction times. The grips are concave with 4 precision texture points or for us non-gamers 4 raised dots. You’ll notice a difference in your game while you play games like Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Madden NFL 15, and Dragon Age: Inquisition. AND DH’s favorite (well, this week’s favorite anyway) Skyrim The Elder Scrolls V.
The grips are made of 100% silicone for a very solid grip. The grips take some doing to get them on because the opening is so small; but that also means that once they are on they are not going to slide around and they offer a very snug fit.
Using these grips make using the control much more of a pleasure since these add some cushion to the original thumbpad. The slight increase in size along with the fact they hold better when your thumb gets sweaty makes these a GREAT gaming tool.
The Close Combat grips are great for games where quick snap aiming and fast reaction time is needed.
