SCUF Gaming, the creator of high-performance gaming controllers owned by Corsair, has introduced its new line of Universal Thumbstick Grips, designed for players who are seeking to add additional performance and grip to their gaming controllers. Compatible with what the company says is almost any existing controller, including the PlayStation 5 DualSense and Xbox Wireless, the new thumbstick grips come in three different variants, Tactic, Catalyst, and Pulse, covering various preferences and styles of play. SCUF’s Universal Thumbstick grips range in price from $9.99 to $19.99 and are available immediately for purchase on SCUF’s website and on Amazon, with the Light Gray colors releasing later in early 2023.
“The launch of our Universal Thumbstick Grips is a reflection of our commitment to giving all gamers the ability to experience the SCUF advantage,” said Diego Nunez, Vice President of Gaming Marketing at CORSAIR. “With this new offering, you can gain a functional advantage in movement and gameplay by simply upgrading your existing controller.”
From a SCUF Gaming press release:
SCUF’s Universal Thumbstick Grips will take almost any existing controller to a higher level, giving gamers the feel of precision, accuracy, and movements of a SCUF thumbstick, on their existing controller.
Tactic replicates the shapes found on SCUF controller thumbsticks which have provided professional and competitive gamers around the world additional performance, comfort and grip for many years. Tactic comes in 2 styles (concave and domed) 3 colors (black, red, and blue) and 2 lengths (short and tall). Light Gray Universal Thumbstick Grips will also be available in early 2023.
Catalyst is inspired by previous controller designs to give customers a taste of the controllers of the past. It has a concave design that allows your fingers to rest comfortably in the indent of the thumbstick and extra grip on the sides of the indent, so fingers don’t slip from where you want them.
Pulse offers the SCUF take on a classic thumbstick style. It has a semi-domed design that means fingers rest within the indent of the thumbstick or on the edge where added grip keeps your fingers on the thumbstick.
