I play a lot of games where it is an advantage to use a controller, especially the Rocket League. I used Xbox One Controller and Xbox One S Controller earlier, I wiped out 3 items of the first model and of the latter model I chewed through 4 pieces. I may be hard-working with my use, but the Elite Controller I have had for 6 months now has held on to everything and shows no signs of breaking. Several details are made of metal which really affects the durability, so for me it is clearly more affordable with such a model than any of the others that are made exclusively with plastic cover and plastic details.
The feeling of holding and using it is also better. It is heavier and lies better in the hands of it in my opinion, it is grooved in the handles which helps, in addition it comes with interchangeable parts so you can have a more customized experience than with other controllers. It also has various settings that can be made to adjust the inertia and resistance of different buttons. Add to that the possibility of using four metal levers on the underside of the controller if you feel it (P1-P4). The controller can also be customized with software for those who want and have three "modes" that can be quickly selected, in addition to a default mode.
The four buttons on the right of the controller feel like the other Xbox controllers, but they have no color code but all are black. It may take a little while to adjust to when it comes to games that show the color code, but it's something that I quickly came across. In addition, the RT and LT buttons have ruffles and the RB / LB feels more durable than the Xbox One S controller.
The joysticks and cross are interchangeable and the metal levers on the underside can be removed. These details are held in place magnetically which works just fine, as they are kept in place without any problems, while simply removing them when you want to replace them. The joysticks have 6 different variants to choose from as well, so there are plenty of opportunities to find the combination that fits best, where there is a difference in the length of the lever but also in how the top of the lever is designed. Some tops are a little bigger, most are grooved on the edges, but there are also rounded tops that work very well for me on the main lever. In addition, all peaks are rubberized, which increases friction with the thumbs and makes it much easier to control the levers.
Finally, I would like to mention a few words about the sensitivity of the control levers. I myself feel that I have more control and more sensitivity in fast games such as Rocket League, and I think I have better control over what it is I'm trying to do. When I had the game available on the Xbox and tried with the controllers that belong to the console (Obox One S), it felt cumbersome and like the controller gave a little overhead.
So, in summary, I am extremely pleased with this controller. It has a much higher price than other Xbox controllers, but I really got what I paid for, both in terms of quality and performance. The controller still feels like when I removed it from the packaging and I expect it to last a good while based on my experience so far.
