Splitfish Dual SFX Frag Pro Review

This post is syndicated with permission from GamerFront.net

Earlier this week we received in the Dual SFX Frag Pro from Splitfish. This time instead of having two separate “chucks” (like the Evolution) we have a left hand “chuck” and a mouse. Honestly you cant get me to play a FPS game on the console or on the PC. I always got frustrated having to use the keyboard for moving around while enjoying the mouse for its precision and control, and the other way around for the console.

The real selling point for me is the precision and control offered by the mouse. This controller delivers the best of both worlds. If you are a fan of the FPS genre it’s a hard one to pass up. This is the controller console FPS gamers have needed for years. PC gamers can also decide to ditch the keyboard and give the Pro a go as well. I can’t wait to use it in one of our GamerFront office GTA IV sessions.

The Pro comes featured with many of the options of the Evolution including rapid fire, programmable macros, and pMo. One extra you’ll find here is the addition of a rigid mouse pad, which is great for gaming just about anywhere. Like the Evolution it does take a second to get used to calling up the necessary button configuration to use these options. Users of the Evolution will be familiar with the required finger contortions. While neither the Pro or Evolution require batteries to be used. The attempt will cost you 6 AAA batteries. Thankfully it has a built-in recharging system, if you spring for the right kind of batteries.

Overall, the Dual SFX Frag Pro is the best PS3 controller I’ve used for a FPS. You’ve got all of the precision you need, plus the ability to set macros and re-map your buttons. It doesn’t get much better than this. The $90 price tag is a little salty, but if you want to keep pace with the best, sometimes you need the best gear.

    Seems like aim precision is mostly mentioned, how about mouse look speed? I tried playing UT on the PS3 using a bluetooth keyboard and mouse but when you try to do a quick turn with your mouse, it still feels as if you're using an analog stick with the dash aim turned on (or whatever it's called). Basically it feels like you're controlling the right analog stick with a mouse, and not a real mouse look kind of control. Does this have the same thing?

    The mouse sensitivity is adjustable, so you can tune it to your liking. Playing Borderlands I definitely noticed being able to do a full 180 much quicker than I ever could with the analog stick.

    Just like the other posters commented, you can adjust the sensitivity on the chuck, on just about every shooter I play I max out the in game sensitivity then adjust it or fine tune it on the chuck. Also, don't forget to remap you're buttons to exactly where you want them, I reposition the prone button from the circle to right mouse button which is r2, that way when i'm playing mw2 i can perform the “drop shot” quite easily which will win you the vast majority of your gunfights specially if your opponent isn't doing the same.
