    Big revival but just thought I would bump this thread up as Kontrol Freek are releasing a new limited edition product - FPS Freek Legendary Edition. I have these on pre order as they look really nice and I already own a pair of the originals and I think that the convex aspect could be better than the originals for accuracy. :smashin:

    I've gone from using both sticks to just one on the right now. I'm a bit fussy so I don't think the ones with the design would be my cup of tea, I needs me a comfortable controller. :D

    Pretty hard to find them around here. Maybe try eBay or LimeXB360. Try Caps4Stix though as most people who I have heard from that own both say they much prefer the Caps4Stix as they last much longer.

    Anyone know if they are "customs friendly" as a few of us were thinking of clubbing together to order some. If they're not, I reckon we would be safe ordering 3 pairs.

    Yeah so ordered some Legendary's the other day. I have tiny hands so I think they might be more comfy for me. I dunno. Will keep you guys posted.

    I know most of you guys won't care but if you do then my FPS Freek Legendary's arrived today and I have had a few hours play with them. I much prefer them to the standard ones. The reason being is that I have small hands and struggle to maintain a comfortable grip on the originals but the convex design on the Legendary's solve this for me.

    Also Kontrol Freek are releasing some new Basketball themed thumbsticks soon. A bit silly IMO but ah well.
    :thumbsup:

    Andori. Id imagine there fine, were do you live?

    Ive bought a lot of stuff overseas and never had problems, other gettin stung for import tax once :(

    I got a pair of freeks Monday, tries a few games of cod and noticed an immediate improvement (for me) in aiming. Just feels more precise.
    Havent had chance to have a prolonged test as I'm trying to finish mafia 2.
    I'll only use for cod etc.

    I have received my Vipr Black FPS Freek yesterday, they took 7 days from the US and there were not customs charges, so they only cost £8.50 all in.

    I have only had a few games of MW2 MP and I have been able to move the sensitivity from 4 up to 8 without noticing it being any harder to control but with the added benefit of being able to look around a lot faster.

    The Freeks are very well made and other then feeling slightly higher they feel like original parts of the control pad.

    I am not sure if they will help with gameplay as time will tell but they do have a bit of the feel of the old N64 analogue stick due to the degree of movement.
