It may be officially safe to say that the Nintendo Switch is currently one of the most sought after and purchased video game consoles of the past year. While the $300 device is met with hardly any major complaints from owners, one gripe many seem to have is the lack of grip that’s encountered when the handheld device is “switched” into multiplayer mode with its detachable Joy-Con controllers.
Amazon shoppers have seemingly found the perfect solution to this problem with the FastSnail Grips for Nintendo Switch Joy-Con. The kit, which is described as “wear-resistant,” comes with two grips made of premium non-slip matte rubber.

While there are tons of items similar to these from the online retailer, this one claims to soar above them all thanks to its scratch-free, sleek appearance and comfortable form factor. The grips’ ergonomic design and smooth-yet-sturdy surface makes them comfortable to hold for extended periods of time. The difference in hand-pressure is even demonstrated in the following graphic:
Amazon shoppers have arguably served as the sole selling-point for this accessory, with a whopping 88 percent of the total shopping pool giving it a five-star rating.
One shopper gushed that the product is “top notch,” before stressing that he has received “no more multiplayer complaints.”
“Do yourself a favor and pick these up for your Switch ASAP,” the customer wrote. “I bought two sets of the red-blue to match the neon console and extra controllers I have… Before I had this set, my family would complain that the controllers were hard to hold. After I ordered these, I had a party with my friends and NONE OF THEM mentioned that the controllers were uncomfortable. That makes this a top notch product to me.”
Another shopper, providing photographic evidence to prove just how necessary these are for Switch users, sang its praises when detailing his “final verdict.”
“This is a quality product with a friendly price point and a must for Switch Owners trying to get the most out of their Joy-Cons,” he wrote. “The FastSnail Grips gives the Joy-Cons that much-needed heft that make them more comfortable for long gaming sessions and sharing with others.”
These grips are available in five color options/pairings (black, green and pink, green and yellow, red and blue, and yellow). If you own a Nintendo Switch console and would like to get the most out of your multiplayer experience, it sounds like these are a no-brainer — The gaming aficionados have spoken!
