4.0 out of 5 stars Overall good product, still using it! Just a couple small quirks., March 17, 2016

This review is from: Foamy Lizard ParticleGrip STUDDED Skin for Steam Controller by Sweat Free 100% Silicone Skin Cover w/Raised Anti-slip StudsCONTROLLER NOT INCLUDED (SKIN, BLACK) (Video Game)
At first touch, it feels pretty good. Others said the studded grips were too sharp and it's not really true; they could be shorter/duller, but they're far from uncomfortable. The material and overall feel (and look) is actually pretty good. The only thing I really noticed is that the middle - between the start/select/Steam buttons, the analog stick and A/B/X/Y buttons - is kind of loose. The rest fits fine, of course, but it could cause a problem for some people.

For those that don't want to read through me babbling about specifics after a couple days, here are some pros and cons:

Pros:
-Great feel, aesthetic
-Maintained a good grip over long periods of play
-Comfortable, not too thick
-Easy to put on/take off

Cons:
-MINOR: Mid-section between the stick/center buttons/ABXY buttons a little loose, though it doesn't really get in the way
-MINOR: Edges around the pads can take a little getting used to
-Can be a little... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Necessary for Any Steam Controller Owner, March 7, 2016

This review is from: Foamy Lizard ParticleGrip STUDDED Skin for Steam Controller by Sweat Free 100% Silicone Skin Cover w/Raised Anti-slip StudsCONTROLLER NOT INCLUDED (SKIN, BLACK) (Video Game)
I ordered this along with the steam controller itself, applying it immediately.

This fixes one of the most common criticisms of the steam controller, which is that it felt like cheap plastic. This skin really and truly makes the Steam controller look more expensive and of higher quality, while making it more pleasant to hold for long periods of time.

My only real qualm are the dotted sides, which I feel protrude into my hands too hard. Thankfully it's easily ignored and even improves grip, though I'd recommend the creators to smooth them out in any future revisions. The start and back buttons also become slightly harder to push down because of an enveloping buffer around them, but otherwise doesn't impact any of the other buttons.

I'm incredibly disappointed that this didn't include a joystick cover like the other foamy lizard products do, though the steam controller joystick was designed in such a way that it doesn't need one as much as the... Read more

This review is from: Foamy Lizard ParticleGrip STUDDED Skin for Steam Controller by Sweat Free 100% Silicone Skin Cover w/Raised Anti-slip StudsCONTROLLER NOT INCLUDED (SKIN, BLACK) (Video Game)
I am going to preface this review with that the skin works great for me now, but out of the bag it, not so much and I am rating it in it's original form.I picked this up because I love the Steam Controller, it's a great controller but the plastic always felt cheap and didn't give me the grip I wanted on the controller. This was the only suitable fix I found for that and grips feel great and after I have modified it a bit, it is ideal, but I have 2 problems with this skin that needed fixing.

The First is I don't think the designer actually uses a steam controller, I had to do some modifications, basically cutting up the front of the skin, The 1st problem areas were around the track pads, I use edge spinning on a lot of my configs and the raised lip around the edge forced me to push skin to the side when I ran my thumbs around the edges of the pad. The other problem was around the buttons, the rise next to the B button wasn't horrible but since I was hacking away I took that... Read more
