… the muscle ache is gone.

And the AMVR controller straps arrived!

Full disclosure – after my last post a Facebook friend from AMVR contacted me and offered to pay for the straps in return for a review, so I got the straps for free.
That won’t influence my review … but the fact that the very first round of beat saber I played with them was 195/195 hits for the first time might.
And given that I now saved almost 25€ I bought Beat Saber as my first Quest game.

So how did the controller straps do? Actually quite nicely! I can completely open my hands and the controllers stay in place and don’t feel like they drop at any moment. That they are lightweight without a strong force feedback motor certainly helps.

I especially like that they have different straps you can pick from when assembling everything. So you get 2 white, 1 red and 1 blue strap and I went for the Beat Saber color scheme. So now I can see which controller goes where by color.

The one thing I am doubtful about is the spring clasp, it seemed a bit simple and I am in wait and see mode if it still holds the strap well 6 months from now.
And obviously the extra grip does make the whole controller a bit thicker, but at least for my big hands that doesn’t hurt at all. It was certainly a lot more comfortable than the one that is on the way back to Amazon!

I am quite happy with it!

Now there is more in the package! A nose piece that I didn’t bother with and that I am not entirely sure how to use. I already have the silicon cover that I am happy with.

And then there is the lens cover … and I failed to get it in properly. Seems too big. Maybe I need to cut something or just fold it. No clue. I put it back into the package together with the remaining straps and the nose piece – got a Quest carry case in the mail from China anyway and hope that will make any lens protection obsolete.
