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 ›
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!!!
These snap on securely and do not fall off even during violent usage, my only wish would be that they were a bit 'higher' - they raise the stick height slightly, but not quite as much as I'd prefer.
They are definitely an improvement on the standard thumb sticks though.
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
The only complain is that the concave design included are a little chunky so you really notice that extra height when holding the controller, having to stretch your thumbs a little more to reach on top. but they're definitely worth it if you have troubles with the default designs on either controller.
These make the PS3 controller a bit more bareable to use, the raised grip version aren't obtrusive to use but it means you're not slipping to the edge of the stick. They've not worn through after a couple of months use, although if you remove them, the previously textured grip area of the PS3 stick itself has worn smooth through using these.
The concave ones were a disappointment - I thought I'd prefer using these due to years of experience with the 360 pad but they raise the profile of the sticks too high, the caps rotate too easily and they just feel awkward in use. I'm now stuck with two sets of spare concave as I bought a second set for my other pad, just to get the raised grip version.
