4.0 out of 5 stars These Thumb Grips get the Big Thumbs up!!! 2 Dec. 2011
By smartyPants TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this for my son as a filler for his advent calendar.

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!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, solid product 10 April 2013
By Zachary

Ordered these to provide better grip for my thumb sticks and they do exactly that. Great for games that require close control like FPS games or FIFA. Fairly tricky to get on but you get there in the end with a bit of effort, made of durable material and the sets of concave and convex covers provide a nice variety if you don't like either or.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product 18 April 2013

I have recently just purchased my second set of these. I can say they are useful and they feel comfortable. They also give your thumbs grip for them gaming sessions that make your hands sweaty. The only reason i made a second purchase was because i got myself a new Dualshock 3.

4.0 out of 5 stars thumb grips, worth it for the small price 25 Nov. 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
another nice little extra you can buy for your controller
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

After 10 or 15 FIFA 12 games, orbs started wearing and my thumbs started to slip. I do not recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Flawed by design but useful. 25 Mar. 2015
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
I received this item free bundled with my PS3 purchased from Amazon on Sept 2013; date of review is 25th March 2015.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice addition 30 May 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I recently received a nice bundle from the kind folk over at Orb Accessories. Today I am going to be dipping into that bundle and giving you my thoughts on their Thumb Grip Pro for the PS3.

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.
