I’ve developed a keen interest for these “elite” controllers over the past year or so. It started with Fortnite and the advantages they provide whilst building.

Today, I own two—a Scuf Infinity 4PS Pro and the Razer Raiju Ultimate. I’ve also owned a Nacon Revolution Pro 2 but swapped it with my cousin as I hated the joystick layout.

I’ve been curious about this one since it was announced as I’m yet to find the perfect fit for my controller needs (Scuf have terrible durability and the weight in the Razer takes some adjusting to).

No idea if and when they’re landing in Australia.

Ordered one of these yesterday from the US along with the new MixAmp (Gen 4). I’ll post my thoughts on both once they arrive.

My friend who lives in Seattle who I normally ask to forward on parcels is away so I had to use ShopMate which is a new service from Australia Post.

I checked their shipping calculator beforehand and it estimated a cost of around $50–60. Got the invoice today and it was over $100 for postage from the US. Found a discount code online which got the price down to $89 but still, outrageous.

Safe to say I won’t be using their service in the future.

Got this today and it shits on every other controller I’ve owned.

Build quality is amazing. The texture is super comfortable. Joysticks feel smooth and have the right amount of resistance and grip. Triggers feel right. Button remapping is easy to do on the fly with some nice haptic feedback to confirm the change.

Might be onto a winner here.

Worth the price you think Vlasta?

Did you find it had adjusting to using the buttons/paddles on the back of the controller?

Once they arrive in Australia, yep. I think so.

Shipping costs blow the price out though, so unless you have a friend in the US who can forward your package on, it’s probably smarter to wait.
