FPS Freek Reviews
Not sure if anyone else has been thinking of buying these or not, but I picked them up after seeing them on this site. So, I figured I'd throw in my $.02 on what I think of them. I mainly play R6V2, and a little COD4. First of all, they are a breeze to install. Now onto the playing. I thought for the first hour or so that I was going to end up trashing them because all they did was mess me up. But, as the package said, I gave them 3 hours. By the end of that 3 hours, I was hooked!! They greatly improved my control on those minor adjustments, and even helped in those frantic up close battles where I tend to spray a little. Now, I can be pretty good at times, so I thought "maybe I am just on a roll right now." So, I took them off, and wow it was weird. Even after that short period of time, I had naturally adjusted to them. Just as they promised. In my opinion, for $10 they are more than worth it, as there isn't much risk involved at all. Hope this helps those who are considering them!!!
Grip - NIce feel on thumb rest
Performance - raises the thumbsticks up for better accuracy
Price - $10
- Hard to put on
- Hard to take off
- Feel cheap at the base
I'll give them a 4/5
buy them if you play MW2 or Halo3.
I haven't tried them on Gears2 yet.

Had them in CoD4, but took them off because my local lans didn't understand them and thought they were a way of cheated <.< but im def picking up another pair before cbus
I don't get why people think that FPS Freeks are "cheating".
--Using a modded controller IS CHEATING.
--Using FPS Freeks IS NOT Cheating.

Also, if using them gives a definite advantage over someone that does not have them, people will always view them as cheating. The only one I could see as a real
modification to how the controller functions (and would affect a players abilities to a noticeable amount), would be the Speed Freek one because it actually changes how you put pressure on the joystick when moving in a side to side motion. (Due to the U shape)
For those that will say, adding an FPS Freek is not a modification.
Here is a lesson. Modding is slang expression derived from the verb modify.
here is one definition of modify
a : to make minor changes in
b : to make basic or fundamental changes in often to give a new orientation to or to serve a new end.
So by putting a FPS Freek onto a controller, you are technically making a change in the controller. So basically you are modding the controller.
Modding does not just refer to permanent changes such as people adding switches to give their controllers rapid fire.
