Geltabz Performance Thumb Gripz
Get's the job done.
While I don't mind the thumbs sticks on my DS4 controller, after about 30 mins. of gaming, my thumbs start slipping off the sticks cause of sweaty hands. I have the Pelican brand grips for my PS3 controllers which include the extended triggers for the L2 and R2 buttons and the grips made a big difference to the thumb sticks and I don't have problems with my thumbs slipping off cause of sweaty hands. So now that I have a PS4 and having the same issue like I did with the PS3 controller thumb sticks, I already knew that I needed some thumb grips for my DS4 controller.
These Geltabz thumb stick grips were the first ones I saw that say they are compatible with the PS4 controller so I decided to give them a try. They go on as easy as the Pelican brand grips in which you turn them inside out, place the inside middle over the thumb stick, and then slide/push down on the outer part of the grip so that it goes over the thumb stick and your done.
After a few multiplayer matches on Killzone Shadow Fall, I must say that my aiming was much improved because of how much more control I had with the grips on the thumb sticks. The grips get's the job done as far as adding more grip to your thumbs and no slippage of your thumbs. Like many others have said though, the only negative thing about them is the price. I think maybe $4.99 is a better price point.
not bad, does what it says
I bought these because I wore out my stock thumb pads on my DS4. They work pretty well and give some extra height. However, they do slip off easily. I suggest putting a drop of superglue on the analog stick before placing new grips on.
does what it says
I mainly got these after reading some reviews on line saying the rubber on the thumb sicks for the ps4 can rub off. These do add some protection and they do fit on snugg and do not move or slide around. They are kind of a pain the get on but not to bad. If you roll the sides up almost turning it inside out put on the stick then roll the sides down around the stick was much easier for me. I think they could have been a little cheaper for four pieces of rubber but if it will protect my $60 controllers I guess it is worth it
Looks nice, preforms better.
I bought this accessory because my PS4 controller was caught in the analog rubber epidemic along with others. I was pleased with the product so much I literally made an account to review this. Not only do the Geltabz feel great with the bumpy surface, but they also are a fine piece of eye-candy. The only thing is that it may take a while for you to feel comfortable with them, but when you do, you're in heaven. Also they raise up from the analog a little bit, so it helps just a tad with accuracy in games like Call of Duty or Battlefield.
Highly recommend for both PS4 & XONE!
For PS4: These add to both comfort and accuracy/precision by adding some thickness and larger, grippy surface area to the top of the stick. However, if you play FPS on PS4, then I recommend not using one on the left movement stick, or using a lower profile, firmer grip (Grip iT) for the left or movement stick because its simply hard to click the left stick (L3) with it pushed all the way forward (sprinting in Battlefield or most FPS) since these are a bit too soft and the L3 stick isn't as clicky as, say the XBOX ONE controller, where these grips work best. Just a matter of personal preference but these really are great! I highly recommend using these in combination with SQUIDGRIPS!
the grips suck
you can't even get a good grip with them. if anything gets on your fingers its impossible to play. these grip sticks are the farthest thing from grip sticks. do not buy please.
Theres not much to review here. The gel on the PS4 control thumb sticks is very slippery and it is very weak. Within a month of having my PS4 the rubber broke. I purchased these from GS and I couldn't be any more happy with my purchase. These gel tabs have great gripping performance and they are extremely comfortable and you can just keep playing for hours upon hours with no discomfort at all. Im sure it has a lot to do with the design of the dual shock 4 but the elevated rubber on the gel tabs work really well. To stop this random rant I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this product to anyone. To prevent tear on the rubber of the controls or for performance and comfort. 10/10 excellent I mean theres no reason not to buy these and the price is ALOT better then buying a new control.
I REALLY LIKE THEM THEY ARE VERY GOOD FOR THE PLAYSTATION 4 CONTROLLER.THE GRIP OF THE THUMB GRIPS IS REALLY GOOD . AND THEY NEVER COME OFF.
Good for DS4
Got these since the DS4 has problems with excessive wear n tear. Wanted a bit of added height too. These work real good, better than I expected. The design is perfect. Kind of pricey, but compared to FPSFreeks its a decent price. Would recommend for regular gamers.
Exactly what I was looking for!
I'm typically used to the Xbox system's controllers. When I played with the PS4 controller, it was fine, until I started playing FPS. I was mashing buttons and hold that L3 button like it was no tomorrow (because of sprint), and I was slipping all over the place. Sooooo.....either 1) my sweat was more due to the hottness of the PS4 (so sexy) or 2) the stick just sucked......reading reviews, I just decided to add a little protection to my investment and bought myself some gel tabs. BAMMMMM! good enough...... Yes, it worked. Worked enough to keep my greasy fingers from sliding all over the place and better than paying a physicist to create a contraption that would adequately keep my manly digits from creating a horrible k/d ratio!! RECOMMENDED!!!!
