Using KontrolFreek Thumbsticks to Improve Your Game

by Brittany Vincent 07 Jan 2022

KontrolFreek has worked tirelessly since 2009 to bring you the latest advancements and innovation when it comes to our Performance Thumbsticks and Performance Grips. Whether you prefer our newer products like the Icon X or you're more partial to tried-and-true products like the FPS Freek Inferno, there's a little something for everyone. And everything, no matter which thumbsticks you settle on in a bid to improve your game, is engineered to make you better. It's all stuff you'll see for yourself as you play and train with your favorite pair of controller thumb grips. Little by little, you'll notice yourself getting better with each session that passes. That isn't just our opinion. It's science!

Here's the deal. The more you train with our KontrolFreek Performance Thumbsticks, you're benefiting from their added height and, in some cases, height differences. That isn't just a coincidence. That's by design! Our thumbsticks are designed in a way that improves comfort, control, and accuracy. It all comes together by way of science. Thumbsticks on a controller are essentially levers that decrease the amount of force necessary to move in and out of the controller dead zone. In turn, that makes your hand feel less tired during longer play sessions. This happens because there's less force, and less work for the muscles in your hand, wrist, and thumb. That translates to more overall comfort, and you, being happier!

But the added height, as you'll no doubt have noticed if you've been training with KontrolFreek thumbsticks, has an important bearing on how you control your game. Thumbsticks add height, and with some pairs of KontrolFreek options, you can purchase offering different levels of height. The added height lets you benefit from increased arc distance and increased control. Simply put, a higher arc distance means a larger field of movement when it comes to fine tuning your aim. That means it's easier to snap to your targets and you have better precision. So whether you pick up a pair of PS5 thumbsticks or Xbox thumbsticks, you’ll be actively improving your game.

With that in mind, you’ve likely noticed with your pair of KontrolFreek thumbsticks, the height differences make it so even if you have to play without your trusty add-ons, you’re still racking up kills and points because of all the training you did with them attached to your controller. Best of all, you can choose from low, mid, and high KontrolFreek thumbsticks to match your play style. You may even want to choose a different set for each game, since you may want to fine-tune different parts of your gaming prowess for different titles.

But the height of your PS5 thumbstick extenders and Xbox thumbstick extenders is about a lot more than just control and comfort. Our products help improve your accuracy, too. The thumbsticks' added height means you have better precision for maximum shot accuracy, which leads to an improved KD -- and we all want that. You can increase your in-game sensitivity to see quicker, more controlled movements that help level up your game, so you're calm and collected even during crucial moments.

So if you’re looking for real, useful ways to improve the way you game with KontrolFreek products, know that ours are the best way to go about it. Train with our thumbsticks and you’ll start seeing real change. The science is there. Just make it happen for yourself by getting your game on. Everything else will soon start falling into place.
