this article is sponsored by Liam our table has been made possible by Fayetteville grapes what’s up Tech fans off mini and today we good to be taking a look our company called fatal grapes basically fatal grips is a gaming company that provides a lot of gaming accessories for the controller such as grapes skins etc. no problem is da boss t-shirt that they send me up they also sent me out 5 type of foam grips which I’m going to be taking a look at in this article so the 5 type of fun grips that they would actually sell all the concave designs the doom design the poor grip design the limited edition concave design as well as the glow-in-the-dark designs so yeah that’s all the five versions that fail grips actually sell and the ones that they sent out to me however they may all look the same and kind of do the same thing but they actually all work quite differently and don’t get me twisted I do have my favorite one and that’s what kind of want to break down this review which one I like the most and which one is actually reasonably best for which game and for what console so first of all let’s look at the elephant in the room and that’s the pricing for these thumb grips one set of these foam grips actually will cost you 245 on the fatal grips website but obviously fear grips being a wiki company they’ve hooked me up with a 10% discount code just use the discount code Othman 10 and you can get 10% of your next purchase for anything on their website but with that out of the way let’s go in the room so if you’re still bad for what these thumb grips are they’re basically around to make a comfortable gaming experience the middle of high-quality silicon and its objective is to improve control as well as handling and overall boosting your gaming performance but on the side note they actually did a pretty top on your controller so obviously I just have each single one to see which one gave me the best performance and for which game but before getting into that I want to clarify don’t get this mixed up with control freaks control freaks are a different category of gaming thumb grips are only around to improve your grip on the controllers thumb stick so yeah if you’re an extinct starts to rip apart the best option is to go with the thumb grip of course for better aiming that’s a control freak category and don’t get it wrong these won’t help with your aiming they’re all about giving a better comfortable gaming experience through the grip that they provide our own booze yes Omar good enough that dabbing let’s get back on with the review these thumb grips are compatible with all your gaming controllers Xbox 360, Xbox one, ps4 ,PlayStation 3 competitor with everything they do for some packaging say ps4 and at the bottom it does say for ps4 and Xbox one but don’t let that thing’s still works on the older generation consoles so yeah currently the ps4 controller that I have is starting to give away the analog stick as you can see it’s fine to rip apart so that the foam grips could have come out bad time .
so first and foremost I actually use the doomed versions to test out I grab the red ones and I try to put them onto the controller and let me tell you this is a very fiddly process it did take some time initially but at the end I figured out it’s not really easy to put on I’ll be honest if you’re someone that get stressed out easily and agitated take your time relax they’ll come on eventually think of it as a actually don’t think about that yeah but yeah once they were on I gave them a whirl they seemed alright they look pretty nice the red versions actually did stand out on the controller there is kind of like a swirly thing going on on the doomed versions and it gives a different kind of grip and I like it added a lot of circumstance onto the thumb pad so when I was actually playing Call of Duty it did feel really nice to be honest it thought there was more area of control on the farm pad but then using the original ps4 foam grips it just just add it to a better experience I’ll be honest it did what it said on the box the swirling us on the doom grips kind of felt a bit weird but I kind of got used to them they nice the rocket if you can use them for fps you can but I really wouldn’t they were kind of the most Vegas ones to kind of figure out and pinpoint it which version type of game you should use it on but they did a working quarter of June honestly if I was me I wouldn’t go with the doomed versions there is one that I will go for I’ll get back to that at the end .
The pork ribs
next one the poor grip edition the pork ribs actually recognized I thought there would be one of the best and the kind of work and she when I tried to put them on the controller it was very fiddly I will be honest they were probably the one of the most Phidias ones to put on it they felt the cheapest in fact they feel very small and petite compared to the other versions such as the doom one especially which had the biggest circumference but when I put the poor grips version on and started juicing yet they by far had the best grip on it I thought the way that the poor versions were built allowed for better grip because there’s the center piece and then when there’s kind of lure 3por extensions which added to a better grip experience yeah they worked on Call of Duty they actually feel a bit more comfortable to use I even use it for a game of injustice gods among us and it works it works even though a button bash unlike game like hell it actually added to a better grip because I don’t use the d-pad I use dialogue sticks the only down thing that how did the pool grips is the fact that they felt like they were the most cheapest built versions of all the other fun grips but so far they were winning.
next up I use the special edition concave design ones okay just to clarify I also did use the concave ones but they actually work exactly the same so there’s no point of me doing it separately the only difference you’ll get between the concave design and the special concave design is just the looks the special one it just looks a bit more funkier which is nice because you kind of can mix and match which is what I really like about the foam grips so you can have one color so you can have get you two different color schemes working on your controller which is again the whole point I didn’t customization to your controller but overall the whole concave design kind of works has the skill input which allows you to keep you kind of thumb in the middle it also has its outer layer of spikes kind of which if you were to move your thumb away then you kind of grip it and you can go back to the center which I kind of like so it worked very well for FPS games because it kind of kept your forms on the center of the analog sticks they are pretty much like the concave designs on the ps4 controller but it just added for a bit more bigger sir confronts I like to do merge which were kind of out earlier these ones were inside so they were kind of collapsing in on themselves but the whole kind of spikes are on the edges really help to the fact to keep your thumb center.
Glow in the dark version
finally last but not least I use the glow-in-the-dark version yes they all go with the dock before you ask it’s not the best glow-in-the-dark in the world so if you think that if you put this on your control arm in your room and you can keep you awake at night due to all the light emitting from it no it’s a very kind of relaxed low light kind of thing it doesn’t glow a lot it goes just a minimum amount it looks really cool in the naked eye but on the camera it going to come out really well obviously once a chest to my controller and I started using them yeah they didn’t feel right the grip I just couldn’t make it work with any game it felt too grippe it’s that thing in fact they were kind of a pain to use because when I was using them on my thumbs they felt like something was pricking my pharmacy started feeling like this the main part my thumb had pins and needles and I didn’t like that feeling it made gaming kind of uncomfortable I’m not going to lie so by far these ones mainly the coolest because they glow up in the dark and stuff but in fact they were actually the most uncomfortable to use so yeah that’s pretty much all the different fun grips and by far I would say either the pole grips but due to that cheap booth which kind of brings it down I would have to say the concave designs I like the fact that it’s all centered and the fact that even though you’re going to go off the thumb bit you could still go back into the center because of those little spikes surrounding it they really work well for FPS games before someone that likes playing maybe RPG games those fighting games be like more fun bar or injustice then I would go with the doomed Edition ones because they are kind of outer layer but FPS wise you should really go with the concave designs I think they work the best for grips are kind of in the middle they just work with everything and the glow-in-the-dark Edition just I don’t know I wasn’t feeling that version it may look cool and all but they were really the most pain to use but yeah I think this pretty much concludes the whole review so the thumb grip essentially you either need it or you dog the only time I was saying you ever need it is in fact if the analog stick is – it started – the period and all the robots time to come off dice play the only time I would say neither fun grip apart from that if you’re playing FPS and you need to increase your aim control free but if you need a bit more grip thumb grip simple right yeah nevertheless that pretty much brings the review to an end.
