The Q1 Pro grips are some of the best ive used. The previous grips I used were the strap grips from Esimem, which, the straps were not good. They were too wide and solid, blocking my access to the triggers.
These grips however do not have that problem. Combined with being attached to the sides of the grips instead of to the controller, they dont get in the way in the slightest. The straps are fully adjustable allowing complete comfort for your playstyle and can even be taken off if you prefer (although I have no idea why you would do so if you buy these). They attach with a buckle which works well. This buckle i feel however is the weakest point. However its also easily the most replaceable piece, its a simple plastic square buckle for the straps to loop through.
The grips themselves do feel slightly on the cheap side however they work. One thing they really should have is more of a 'grippyness' to them, other grips have something like a texture on them which helps me keep the orientation and stuff correct wheras these dont have them as much. The texture is subtle. Id argue for the price there could be better quality material used for this, but it works well nonetheless.
They stay attached through the tightness of the grips on the handles of the controller combined with attaching at 2 spots on the ring around the controller. This part is the second weakest part for me, the material at this section is at its weakest and if you move it wrong I feel it could possibly tear.
A major con for me as someone who plays beatsabre with the sabre handles is having to take the grips on and off, these grips take a few minutes to take on and off each time. If you are more interested in just playing beatsabre, these are really not for you. However in titles like superhot? These are amazing. Being able to let go of the controller and still move it feels great. Doesnt feel like it could slip off at all. The fact these also can use the standard wrist straps too for extra support incase they do somehow slip off is great and feels fine.
Question is..Are these $40AUD worthy? That really comes down to you and how you are going to use them. For me, most definitely. If you are playing games like superhot and other fps and such, these are worth the cost and I really do recommend picking these up. I rate it 4.5 out of 5, these would be 5/5 in my eyes with those few little things fixed.
The default rift touch controller lanyard strap is honestly a bother to fasten and unfasten everytime I have to do anything outside of VR. After buying these, I can say for a fact that my troubles are gone.
Pros- - The build is overall really nice - The new strap design lets you let go of you controllers and have them stay securely on your hand (much like the vive index controller strap) - Seems sturdy, made of really nice feeling material
Cons- - The part where you hand touches the edge of the strap can get alittle irritated over time as it's a tad bit sharp, but overall it didn't bother me much - You have to remove the entire case everytime you change the battery so that can be alittle bit of a hassle.
But otherwise, it's an overall really nice quality grip cover and is well worth the money I spent on it.
Purchased these on a whim as I've heard good things about Kiwi Design. They arrived today and they are a lot better than expected. They feel nice in the palm of your hand with a rubber like texture so easy to clean for those sweaty Beat Saber sessions :D. The design is great as they are so easy to put on & remove for when changing batteries. It fits onto the controller with little effort and then it connects with 2 rubber tabs across the top. The Velcro strap is comfortable and very easy to use. I seriously recommend these and will be ordering another set for my partner and her quest.
They are comfortable and definitely improve immersion, in my opinion; being able to let go fully is really nice. I had a go without them again, just to be sure, and I found myself putting them back on in only minutes. They also help a lot with grip fatigue. They feel like a high quality silicone, reasonably thick, doesn't cause me to sweat, and easy to wash if needed.
Originally brought the AMVR Rift S grips but didn’t receive so tried my luck on these KIWI grips. Was blown away by the quality of these grips. They are comfortable and prevent the Rift S battery cover coming off, which can happen at times. Definitely worth the price 🙂
These are brilliant! I found the original straps that came with the Rift S controllers to be uncomfortable, and the controllers themselves were a little uncomfortable to hold after an hour or two.
With these, that problem is completely gone. The different strap design is way more comfortable while also providing more security. The material is much more comfortable to hold for a long period of time, rather than a hard plastic.
If you're worried about changing the batteries in the controller, don't be. I had a tough time the first couple of times I replaced the batteries, but after doing it a few times I can now get this off and on again in about 15 seconds (not accounting for time taken to change the battery)
