So here’s the thing: we’ve been in business since 2009 and some people still don’t understand how KontrolFreek products work – or even if they work.

Don’t get us wrong, we’ve got some ride-or-die fans out there who know exactly what our products do. In fact, a lot of them tell us that once you start playing with KontrolFreek performance thumbsticks™, you’ll never play without them again because they’re comfortable, provide a grip AND your KDR gets a big boost when you use them.

So, how do they increase your KDR?

Here’s a quick rundown: KontrolFreek thumbstick extenders increase the height of your controller’s OEM thumbsticks. This does two things:

1) It increases your range of motion so that you can make more precise movements, which increases your accuracy.

2) It allows you to take advantage of higher sensitivities without losing control, so you can turn on your opponents faster, snap to and aim quicker.

We know that our products work amazingly well, but we wanted to find out how much our performance thumbsticks increase the KDR of an average gamer.

So, last year we hired a third-party research firm, Customer Centric Strategy, to perform a national survey. Customer Centric Strategy questioned 1,000 U.S. gamers in an anonymous survey to find out just how well KontrolFreek performance thumbsticks work.

Spoiler alert: they confirmed that they work exceptionally well!

During the survey, we asked respondents familiar with KontrolFreek about the benefits of playing with our thumbsticks. We were more than pleased to find that the majority saw big KDR increases from KontrolFreek!



75% of those who were familiar with KontrolFreek said they saw a substantial increase in KDR while using KontrolFreek thumbsticks. We asked them how much their KDR increases while using KontrolFreeks, then tallied up their responses.

On average, they reported a 26% increase when playing with KontrolFreek products. And the good news doesn’t stop there. In fact, one user group reported up to 107% increase in KDR since they started using KontrolFreek thumbsticks.

That’s more than double their original KDR! A few of the gamers surveyed said that KontrolFreek only raised their KDR by 21%, but we think that’s still a big boost! All-in-all, the reported KDR increases look like this:
