By UndeadBrozWow! These this are just amazing! I use them in NBA 2K15 and boy, Do they ever feel comfortable, Lot's of grip and great look! I actually use these more in Call of Duty than 2K! In Call of Duty ,I annihilate. They really help me with the medium to long range kills because those are the type of kills I don't normally get. Just awesome
Perfect..if it didn't fall off during use
By hee1kickI fond of this product. I got large hands, and this makes the controllers much more comfortable for me. Also, it is useful sometimes for being more accurate. Espec. in shooters. But, I find it also helps with "flashy passes" in Nba2k14, and aiming shots in #IDarb.
The Hoops Freek is my favorite set, because I prefer the convex shape, and I really like the way the grip feels on it (especially compared to the other designs I've tried, which was a few others). These days the Vortex is nice, too. But, i been using the basketball ones for a few years, so i have them on the xb360 and the xb1.
But, there is a big CON on the new xb1 models. The dang things pop off occasionally while I am playing. At least once an hour, and that is just playing Nba 2k against the computer. It happens more often during more intense games. I haven't played any shooters lately, but, i think it would come off a lot on a fast-pace shooter like Halo multiplayer. It pops off pretty frequently during #IDARB online.
On the 360 they never popped off once. Which is good, because taking them off and on is potentially damaging to your controller. I had a little piece break off from the edge of the analog pad one time when removing or fastening a Freek, don't remember which. But, it bugs me every time I use that controller.
So, having to fasten the XB1 Freeks more often, I am worried about damaging those controllers, too.
And even ignoring all that, it is annoying to have them pop off in the middle of a game. I was playing #IDarb online the other day, and this problem caused a key goal against me.
If there wasn't this problem, I would give the product 5 stars, like i did on the 360 models. But, this is a big detraction. Still, it is better than not having Freeks.
I hope the design is improved to eliminate this problem. If it is fixed i'll get another pair.
