    What about the circle pad pro xl used as a grip?

    CPP isn't very suitable as a grip due to the new L/R only being active in CPP titles.

    hori wheel is by FAR the 3ds grip, i stuck with the OG model as the XL has nothing comparable. ergonomics is a big deal and i find both models uncomfortable in vanilla form. heard the cyber one was as good as it gets for the XL...

    IMO the 3DS XL is already comfortable to play it, with or without grip.

    Plus the only way to get one now is to import it from Japan. They never made it to stores and NOA's online store doesn't even stock them anymore.

    I remember someone posting an xl grip that had game cart storage inside it (good if you have 3ds+ds flashcarts) cant seem to find it now though

    yeah I thought at least the triggers would work as regular L/R triggers on games that dont support the second circle pad (what was nintendo thinking when they made that thing?)

    This THIS is interesting.

    I bet it can be found cheaper, most of what they want is probably for that CPP addon that comes with it.

    I use the nerf armor on my XL and it definitely makes it a lot easier to grip.
