Control tumbsticks for ps4
« on: September 14, 2014, 03:25:29 PM »
I read some of you have an extra set of controller thumbsticks.

What's your model and how would you rate it?

I seem to get lost as there are tons of them out there.  Also read some damage your ps4 controller edges even.

I'm slowly getting better but the mrs is even trying out destiny as i write this, used my second character slot for her but her aiming is terrible.

Are those extra set of thumbs only for experts or do they also help total new players?

Hi Xin,

I bought a set of kontrol freeks ultra

I found they really improved my fps. But actually improved all my gaming.
They give you a larger axis due to the increased height which means I was able to turn the sensitivity up so smaller movement giving increased turning.

Would highly recommend them.

Have had them since I got my ps4 and use them every day.

I have not had any issues with them damaging my thumbsticks.

Yeah got the ultra too their comfy and worth it if you want to upgrade you god gaming precision. Only thing I found the concurve on the ultra can sometimes be a hindrance when using the run button press as being concurve you get a forward movement in the stick as well as pressing down. If it was concaved your has move downward applied pressure stopping the forward movement in the stick. Might buy another concaved set later and swap the left for concaved to hopefully improve even more. But overall yes definitely worth £8 of eBay.

They really make a difference indeed! I orderf the ultra x. Very happy i got this. I can see the problem with running shadow, i opted to only use the extra thumbstick on the right controller. I don't feel it has a big advantage on the running and strafing.
