Pack comes with 2 sets of additional buttons. He has now used them both & finds it a lot easier to use the buttons - a bit more like the 360 controller. He does however prefer the rippled grips as he gets a lot more control with those.
So a "thumbs" up for these grips! Not sure how long they will last - if they wear out quickly then I will post up a follow up comment, but looking good so far!!!
I firstly have to state that I only kept one set of the grips and gave the other to a friend, I do not know why I kept the set that I did and not the other, I can only assume it was a subconscious decision but can report in my opinion I kept the right set.
The set that I kept was the domed set with dimples on and gave the concave ones to my friend; both are now around a year and a half old.
With the set I use one has come off 3 times in 18 months. One came off while cleaning the pad and the other two times during game play. While I can not be exact with the figures regarding the concave set, the friend I gave them too I see most Friday nights for some local multiplayer gaming and I can say without doubt his set come loose far more often, at least 4 or 5 times one has come off when we were playing, and I have no idea how frequently that happens to him the rest of the time when he plays at home. Regardless he seems to like them enough to put up with that. Oddly enough neither set are easy to intentionally remove in anyway.
Having used both sets I would concur the following.
The domed grips are best used with the tips of your thumbs, using this method they are accurate and easier to be precise than without, however if you use them with the underside of your thumbs then you are better off not using them, using them in this way your thumbs will quickly just slip off the sticks, the dimples just don't do offer much in terms of grip.Read more ›
fairly easy to get on and off,tho can sometimes be a little bit fidlly but there is no chance that they will fall off when gaming and i cant really see way that they could break at all unless they were actually cut in with a pair of scissors or something
there not going to have a ginormous impact on your gameplay but are still worth getting in my opinion especially as they are so cheap, they do there job amazingly well and you get 2 sets of grips
one pair has loads of little lumps on it (the most effective of the pair in my opinion)
and the other is almost identical to the analogue sticks of a 360 controller
Now we all know that comfort is a must when playing video games, whether that comfort is related to headsets or controllers or in this case, thumb sticks. The Thumb grip Pro from Orb Accessories addresses that comfort as well as much needed grip.
I have issues when it comes to playing games for an extended period of time due to bad hands and wrists so I am always on the lookout for anything that could help improve the amount of time spent playing. When these thumb grips arrived, I was eager to put them through their paces.
The packaging that they came in was pleasant to look at. A transparent plastic with a red and white background along with images of the PS3 controller. You could see the thumb grips clearly through the packaging. There are two sets included - one set of Firm Rubber Grip Caps with extra dots for extra grip and a set of 4 dot D-Pad style Rubber Grip Caps. Size wise I think they add a centimeter to the height of the generic thumbsticks on a PS3 controller.
Fitting the caps on to the controller thumbsticks was an issue for me, but that is because of the hand issues that I have. I managed to get them on after a few minutes, so they didn't take overly long to fit.
Size wise, the thumb grips add roughly a centimeter to the height of the generic thumb sticks on the PS3 controller. My hands aren't the biggest and my thumbs were able to sit comfortably on the caps and move the thumbsticks about with no issues.
When I started up a game, I wanted to focus on the comfort added by the caps.Read more ›

I've always had problems with the DS3 controller. The D-pad is fine (worse than Ninty's, but not borderline unusable like the 360's). Read morePublished 4 months ago by godhelpusall
