Wii Controller Grip
Manufacturer: PEGA
Site: Buy from Goldenshop (http://www.goldenshop.com.hk/AI-trad/wii/congrip.htm)
Price: $7.00

Overview :
Wii controller grip has a nice appearance and good touch-feeling.
Designed according to controller shape, the two grips are suitable for different kinds of people, and you can play your games freely by holding the two bars.
The controller grip will ease your hands tiredness.

Quality/Usability : The Wii Controller Grip is to give you a better grip and comfort when holding the Wii Remote controller when used horizontal. Like the Wii Steering Wheel (http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=52425) that was reviewed, the Controller Grip also has little foam paddings on all sides to prevent any scratching on the Wii Remote. Access to the B button is not really easily accessible since the hole is fairly small and the button does not stick out of the back of the Controller Grip. The wrist strap situation is the game. There is no opening on the back of the grip to allow the strap to go through. So, you'll either have to take the strap off or it will be somewhat of an annoyance. I noticed that on the back of the grip, there is a small hole with the words "SYNC". How can we sync the controller if there is a battery cover in the way?

Unlike the Steering Wheel, the Controller Grip does have grooves on the bars for better gripping. The comfort of holding the peripheral is pretty comfortable.

Conclusion : Overall, the Wii Controller Grip feels nice in the hands but the small opening for the B button and lack of a hole for wrist strap isnt good. If you purchase this and have access to a dremel, you may want to make the opening bigger allowing your finger to reach the B button easily.
