I have used both these and the competing Grip-It covers and these are WAY better, they have a firmer design and really give you the thumb traction you need. They are like sneakers, a little stiff at first but once they are broken in, its a beautiful thing.
these are very ugly and uncomfortable like one other viewer said GO grip its i agree these are HORRIBLE
so far so good
I have only had these for a few days now but they seem pretty good. I like the feel of them and they also add a little bit more comfort to my analog sticks.
Get the 3 Pack
I love GelTabz. I've been purchasing them for my systems for years. I extremely recommend getting the 3 pack (that includes the wii nunchuck tab) even if you don't need it. GelTabz has improved itself in my opinion with this batch. The 2 pack of black/green/pink has a slightly bigger opening on the bottom to go around the stick and make it easier to apply, but this does have the negative effect of it falling off after a year or so of use! (I've owned all variations) I currently am using them on 4 360 controllers 1 ps3 controller 1 ps2 controller and 2 wii nunchucks. I still have a pink set 2 green sets and 3 black sets. (2 of the black sets are from the 3 pack). The 3 pack black set with blue nunchuck tab is the best yet.
Only problem that comes to mind is a slight discoloration to the white portion of the tab after long term use (after a couple years) Which is why I have replaced a few with the newer black ones, which after having had for quite awhile have yet to discolor.
(Only reason for 9's is because there is always room for improvement.)
gel tabz are weak.
gel tabz have been around for a long time. and i still hate them. go grip its all day!! GRIP IT FTW!!!!!!!
A Great Product!!
I dont know what that picky gamer guy is talking about. I purchased my Geltabs about 2 months ago and i have not had a problem yet with them. I never have to clean them or make them grippy again, and I play video games all the time. They are comfortable and they wont let you down. I just purchased 3 more sets so I have one on each of my ps3 controllers. These are cheap and well worth the money. They dont make your gameplay better, I dont think they are ment to. They are just made for comfort, so when your playing for a couple hours your thumbs wont hurt. I also use those real triggers, which work really well and are a reasonable price. So if your looking for a something to comfort your thumbs, go ahead and buy a set of these. But you might need to order now because I had to wait until they had them in stock, because I couldnt find them anywhere.
This product is really great! I bought it beacuse my original grip on my controller was chipping off. So instead of buying a new controller I decided to just order some of these amazing Universal GelTabz. They work very well. And they were at a reasonable price also. They give you a very firm grip on your thumpsticks. I would recommend this product to any one who wants to experience better gameplay and get a better grip on there controller's. Although saying all these positive things about this product I did find some faults about it, like the plastic seems very cheap and a bit too thin around the bottom edges that wraps around the thumpstick, so im a little worried that it will tear easy. Overall this is a great product and it is a most have to any serious gamer who wants to improve there gameing skills just a little more.
Two weeks after my first review.
Sorry readers for my first review i cant delete it. Ok i thought they were pretty good at first but after a month i discovered that they are worthless pieces of junk. They serve absolutely no purpose but only to make matters bad.First off when you spin around your analog sticks the rubber makes contact with the controller only slowing it down. Second they wear out and get loose on the sticks. Third you will spend all day cleaning them with rubbing alcohol trying to keep them grippy, the natural oil from your skin make them slippery worse than anything. I took them off and back to good old trusty analog sticks. The geltabz don't help your game at all. If you want to be good at a game practice it. Save you money. By the way my geltabz are on my broken controller my 2 year old son plays with he thinks there are pretty nifty toys.
GelTabz are ok
They do what they were made to do. They help your fingers from slipping off of the thumb sticks. They do not improve your game in any of the first person shooters and those who think that it's psychological. Yes it is more comfortable and keeps your fingers from slipping. They are well worth the price. As far as installation you turn them inside out and flip them right on. One guy said it was a pain that is not true at all took me 20 seconds to put them on. I will buy a few more sets on back up they are nice to have and feel alot better than the stock analog sticks. Hopefully Microsoft will redesign the controller with the tabs built in or use a different material. I actually use mine on a Gamestop brand controller and they fit that as well as the real Microsoft controller. I will end it on this note they are well worth the price and do what they were designed to do, but they will not improve you first person shooter skill enough to notice. Buy them still they are comfy.
A Great Buy at Twice the Price!!!
My initial reason for picking the Geltabz up was because the thumbstick on my Wii Nunchuck had become discolored & I just wanted to cover it up. After searching a number of Gamestop locations near my home, I found one set of them in stock at one store and two sets in another. I ended up purchasing a set which contained two black Geltabz & one smaller, blue one. The other two sets I'd found in-stock contained only two Geltabz (all pink, not that that mattered). Luckily I picked up the set of three, because the normal, universal sized ones that come in the two pack ended up too large to fit the Nunchuck properly (I later went back and purchased them too). Since I also own a 360 & PS3 (and have a Wife), the pink ones were put to use. What I'm getting at is this... If you're looking to use them on a Wii Nunchuck controller, MAKE SURE YOU GET THE THREE PACK rather than the "universal" two pack.Anyway, if not for my discolored Wii thumbstick, I would have never discovered these great products. Forget what anyone else has said, they go on extremely easily. They are very comfortable & really prevent your thumb from sliding off. The silicone material allows for a much better grip than the 360's smoother sticks, and is much easier on the thumbs than the Wii's somewhat harsh rubbery material. I haven't tried them on my PS3 yet, as I'm looking for another set. I still need another smaller Wii fitting cover, so I want to pick them up in-store (rather than online) to assure I get the three pack. To sum up, if you're looking for better grip, better comfort (less blisters) or just a cool, custom look, Geltabz are the way to go.
