To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have the same problem many do with the elite controller. The rubber grips started to peel away. Except mine peeled away on the very back of the controller and not on the part where there are replacements for. I dealt with it for a while and finally decided to give these grips a try.
Pros- very comfortable to hold. It did not add any bulk to the controller. I actually believe this grip feels better then the finish on top of the controller and the old grips. I would say that I like the few of the controller much better now. They do not get in the way of the paddles on the back but I did remove the old grips on back. If you leave the grips on back I think it might get in the way of the paddles.
Cons- as others have stated there is a very distinct chemical smell. I can’t smell it when I’m using the controller but man do my hands stick after using it. It goes away though. I am hoping it will fade with time. Well see. I have had the grips for about 2 weeks. It’s still pretty strong. I had to apply and reapply several times to get the grips on correct. I still don’t think it’s on correct but good enough. These are clearly not made for the elite even though it’s listed in the description. I had to cut the grips so it didn’t cover the trigger levers on back.
Overall I am happy with these grips. It has worked in my instance and I would recommend as a cheaper alternative to buying new elite controller. For a regular Xbox controller these would be great for as well. They do lot get in the way of the headset adapter.
I originally bought this to help hold in the grips of the elite controller that were coming off until I got a new elite 2 controller figuring it would do better than electrical tape. But after using these for a day, they are super comfortable and I may end up getting another set of these for my new controller as well. I would definitely recommend these.
