    I was searching for a grip for my XL made by Cyber Gadget, because I got one for a friend and really liked it. Then I came across this one. Can't find much about it as far as reviews.

    It says 'スライドパッド' (suraidopaddo) in Japanese, or 'Slidepad' in English.

    Basically, a relocation of the 2nd analog stick on the original Slidepad/Circlepad.

    That actually looks pretty damn comfy. Would like to try it out! Is there a link to buy it anywhere?

    So has anybody tried this cyber grip with left shoulder stick yet? i'm curious for a review, only read that the analog stick is not so good.


    And then there's this behemoth which i dunno if it's selling already or still on preorder... needs a to sacrifice an original cpp xl diy tho... so not cheap...

    I actually bought this a few days after making this thread. The shell is made of durable plastic, however I prefer the soft touch rubbery finish of the non slidepad version. This one seems a little less comfortable to hold for long periods of time than the other one too (maybe the grips aren't out as far). The slidepad placement does take some getting used to. It feels weird controlling both analogs with the same hand, and going from L/R to L2/R2 Is a bit of a strech. The slidepad does not rotate smoothly, as the shaft is inside of a rather plus sign shaped hole. An easy fix with a dremel and a sanding stone. Not really a terrible product, just takes a little effort.

    ...Interesting. Where can I find that one?

    Looks cool but I'm wary how it would feel, 1- you're depending on one hand for the following: grip, circle/d-pad, L, and the 2nd circle. I'm wondering if I could even handle that? 2- would it feel alright to contort your index finger with the accuracy of using your thumbs comfortably? Would that affect the grip?

    EDIT: don't blame me for the necrobump I'm just in it for sloppy seconds
