Thumb stick ideas please

Hey all What do y’all recommend on thumb stick padding or something that’s not so hard on the right thumb! I usually play a game or whatever then chill for a few minutes before I play a again but I just had a marathon of a game online 22 innings ugh 😩! I’ve never had this problem before so I’m looking for some suggestions on thumb stick pads I’ve look that the inferno’s but trying to see what else is out there! Thanks

Have you looked into Kontrol Freaks?

I don’t think the problem is the controller. I think the problem is that your thumb sounds like a whiny little girl.

Got that girl thumb hahah

Yea I have! I’ve tried the galaxy but they tend to come off. I thought about the inferno.

I have the lavender ones (not sure which series they are) and I don’t think they have ever come off without being forced. Maybe you just got a crummy set of KF? I think they’re the best option for saving your thumb and you also get significantly more control over the pci.

Thanks I’ll try those!

Question I always have for Kontrol Freeks is the advantages/disadvantages of the low rise/mid rise/high rise or the convex/concave? Or is it just personal preference? I've also seen KF now has this "precision rings." Wonder if those help. Anyone tried those? I used the galaxy ones when I played Show 18. Felt like they helped. The galaxy are the purple ones that have a high rise and a low rise. They're convex. I use the nightfall ones now. They are both tall and concave. I'm wondering if some of my recent hitting issues can be attributed to the taller height and concave.

Don’t put to much pressure on the sticks. Ease up.

I’ve tried them and they really restrict pci movement too much in my opinion and I’m someone who shoves the pci up and down. Also, since you’d need it on the left stick, it effects defense. I’d just stick with the standard KF and not the rings.

Interesting, I have the galaxy as well and haven’t encountered this issue once.
