Definitely a major flaw on an otherwise amazing controller. When that happened to mine, I put on some aftermarket grips that work great. The bumpers need to be made of sterner stuff as well. If you've ever replaced them, it's just a thin bit of plastic inside holding them together.
These after market replacement grips... I'd like to know more please. Thankfully as far as buttons go everything has been perfectly fine, but those stupid grips are bull$#!+.

The biggest problem.

Rubber grip and those crappy bumpers.

I think it was these-

https://www.google.com/search?q=ama...ILQ&biw=1022&bih=554#spd=13331665393666690521

kinda pricey, but better than buying the whole thing. Looks like there are more available than when I changed mine out.

Thanks! I'll check these out after work tonight.

EDIT: Update; picked up the scuf pro grip handle kit. So far I'm likin' it! Hope these hold up better than the elite's genuine grips do! I was a little worried it might feel to foreign, for lack of a better term, but it feels fine, more grippy than the default grip. Using the medium replacement sticks as well which are also extra grippy. Thanks for the recommendation!

I imagine if you never got the original elite this might be more enticing, but I'm not seeing enough reason to get this as a replacement for my current elite.

Almost fully agreed with you, I want one, but if I do I probably won’t use it unless I need to, I’m still using my Project Scorpio controller and the Taco Bell elite has only seen the light of day a handful of times and used maybe twice >.<‘ unless I have some Best Buy bucks then I might jump in :p

$179 is steep, and I totally get if people don't rush out and upgrade if they have the old one.

For me though it is like Sammy Davis Jr and Dean Martin in Cannonball Run driving around in a red Ferrari. Do they need a red Ferrari? Nope. However if the option is available and I can make that happen, I'm in.

Yup, same here. I dropped $200 two months ago for my Astro Gaming C40 TR Controller for my PS4. It has bells, whistles, quality and allowed me to offset the sticks. I am willing to drop coin on things that make me happy and make my experience better.

Sure, there is a limit. I wouldn't spend $500 on a controller. But if you give me a solid controller with accessories, settings and it has great reviews, I would not object to spending upwards of $250 for a controller.

I buy a TV at least once a year, working my away around the house replacing them as tech changes.

Oh, and I love you for mentioning cannonball run.



Miss you Burt!

So, the 1st version is on sale if you have Amazon Prime for $129.99

That's the lowest price I've seen for the elite. If you wanted to try one but the price was a little too steep, check it out. Just be warned that once you get the Elite, all your other controllers will "break". :)
