    Default WTB: NES controller grips

    Hey all,

    I'm looking to buy the two-piece rubber NES Power Grip accessory if someone has it for sale. Can't seem to find any online.

    Still looking to purchase these if someone has them. Haven't heard back from 8bitnes; he hasn't been active since his post.

    Your best bet is really to put a watch ebay and have a decent idea on what you want to pay. A friend of mine picked up 2 pairs with NES controllers for about $20 shipped a couple weeks ago. A bit high, but since I'd seen them going for about $15 for just the grips I felt okay on it and we split them. $10 for each with an extra NES pad wasn't bad.

    Unfortunately though, they will not fit a PCE pad and will go around a SMS pad but are a bit loose. They do make the NES pads much less awful though, I can see why people like them.

    I've still got them. School started up and am teaching new courses this year and am a head varsity coach and have 3 kids age 4 and under at home. I don't really check my e-mail linked to this account very often any more. I'm not interested in digging them out and taking photos unless I have a firm idea of if it is worth my time, which is quite limited right now. I'll give a description. I have 3 sets. One set has been chewed on my dog. The other two sets are nice.
