Adds extra leverage and/or grip.
on 2 June 2014
You receive two sets of thumb girps, the larger domed grips are larger, add leverage and are more suited to the PS3 controller. Useful for quick movement, such as shooting in FPS, however the larger leverage can become slippy, and the grip is limited, causing the thumbs to become loose in quick movement, such as quick changes of direction or rotation such as driving or sports games.
The second set of grips are more traction like, small bumps on the grip adds extra traction, and reduces the chance of slip. These fit better on the PS4 controller, as the thumbsticks are smaller, and domed in shape. This grip doesn't add much size, maybe 3-5mm, so leverage is not a benefit, but the quick movement and rotations on this grip is quick and easy, and slipping is unlikely, and control is optimum.
For a very cheap set of thumb grips I can't complain, just a shame that both pairs of thumb grips don't work equally as well on each controller, as the larger grip slips on the PS4 controller, and the traction grip is a little too small to cover the whole PS3 analog stick.
P.S If you are looking for a replacement to cover a broken analog stick these don't work, as they are very specific on the size, they can stretch to a larger stick, but the elastic rubber doesn't mould onto a small stick.
