Topic: Handheld Grip

Posts 1 to 12 of 12

Does anyone use a grip for the console while playing in handheld mode? If so, what are your recommendations? I find that, for me, playing the Switch in handheld mode can cause a bit of discomfort in my right hand while playing some games. It's even becoming a residual effect throughout the day while at work as well.

@Introspect I use a JETech Switch grip. It's a cheap grip that makes the handheld Switch experience much more comfortable. I found it difficult to put on and take off at first, but I have no issues with it now. You can't dock the Switch with the grip applied, though. It can also make the L/R buttons slightly harder to press, but it hasn't really been an issue for me.

I use the Mumba heavy duty case. The raised rubber behind the joy-cons is enough alleviate the hand cramps I would get prior to owning the grip. The grip doesn't block the shoulder buttons and it's easily removed if you want to play in tabletop mode. The only downside is how the case slightly hinders access to the game cart slot, but that's a non-issue if you play mostly digital.

Thanks for the recommendations!

RDS Go play and Mumba HD. Bought the RDS after the Mumba started hurting my hands. It's the better option except for lack of colors.

@ValhallaOutcast tried that one for a day and sent it back. It's loose, adds virtually no grip, and makes your hands cramp more than no case.

I use that one too.

When I plan to switch from dock to handheld often, I use individual gel grips for the joycons instead.

I don't own one since I'm fine as is, but do these grips still allow the Switch to be placed in the dock easily? Because that's really my main concern with these grips.

Please let me know before you send me a FC request, thanks.

Some do, others don’t.

Those that do are usually way too thin to provide any form of protection, and the handles are usually smaller too.

I mostly use mine when I know I won’t be docking the switch, like on a trip or something.

@EvilLucario the one by Skull and Co does but not many others fit the dock while it’s on
