If you are as excited as we are for Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, then now’s a good time to check your Joy-Cons and Switch Pro controllers to make sure the grip, comfort, and style are prepared for the epic journey we’re about to embark on! Slippery thumbs on a worn-down Switch Pro controller will get you killed by any Bokoblin with a club, and you want to feel just as connected to Link and the Master Sword when you are playing on Joy-Cons on the plane or train to work! Dust off those Joy-Cons and Switch Pro controllers because we have the perfect controller upgrades to maximize grip and comfort during those inevitably long play sessions, while you brighten up your Switch set up with some cool new colors. KontrolFreek No-Slip Thumb Grips are now available for Switch Pro and Joy-Con!
KontrolFreek No-Slip Thumb Grips for Switch Pro controllers come in an 8-pack of extra-grippy thumb grips for only $12.99! These Thumb Grips are super easy to apply to your controller. Just flip the Thumb Grip inside out, place it on the thumbstick with the opening facing up so you can see the logo in the hole, then flip the edges of the Thumb Grip securely around the corners of the joystick. These grips provide all the top-of-the-line grip and control you expect from KontrolFreek, but without the added height that you normally experience with Performance Thumbsticks. If you have larger hands or you are looking for some extra height on your Switch Pro Thumbsticks, check out our Performance Thumbsticks for Switch Pro.
For an adventure game like Legend of Zelda, we normally recommend a set of Low-Rise or Mid-Rise Thumbsticks but we’ve been rocking the No-Slip Thumb Grips on our Switch Pro controller for the last few weeks while we refresh ourselves on Breath of the Wild and they feel so good in our hands. We don’t need the added height from Performance Thumbsticks in Breath of the Wild, but the No-Slip Thumb Grips make our controller feel like it’s always even better than brand new!
KontrolFreek No-Slip Thumb Grips for Joy-Con come in a separate 8-pack with fun colors to mix and match with! We’re proud to share this solution for all of you Switch gamers in FreekNation that don’t use a Pro Controller. The best part about the Switch is it’s portability. You can play your favorite games from anywhere in the world only on the Nintendo Switch, but most gamers utilize the portable features of the console with Joy-Con controllers, attached to the screen or not. Those Joy-Con thumbsticks aren’t the grippiest to start off with, and they can wear down over time. If you’ve been using the same Joy-Cons that came with the console since Breath of the Wild like us, than you can avoid having to buy another pair for close to $100 by buying a pack of KontrolFreek No-Slip Thumb Grips for Joy-Con for just $12.99! KontrolFreek No-Slip Thumb Grips for Joy-Con, upgrading the grip and control of your Joy-Cons is easier than ever.
To apply them to your Joy-Con joytick, flip the Thumb Grip inside out, place it on the joystick with the opening facing up so you can see the logo in the hole, then flip the edges of the Thumb Grip securely around the corners of the joystick. Upgrading the grip, control, and style of your Joy-Cons and Switch Pro controllers has never been easier with KontrolFreek No-Slip Thumb Grips for Switch Pro and Joy-Con!
