I think you should probably make a thread with a really dramatic title that indicates your specific displeasure with the FlipGrip. It would be valuable to the community here to get your precious opinion into the hands of all the users at ResetEra. They definitely need your specific guidance on this $12 piece of plastic that does a great job of allowing you to play vertical arcade and pinball games from ages ago because you find it a little too unbalanced in your hands. The answer to you is NO, I do not sit around with every product I buy and "scrutinize" it's value or function. I purchase it, play with it, enjoy it, and read posts on messageboards from people like yourself who are entirely self-absorbed by the value of their opinion in their head that they can't see the forest for the trees. Then I go ahead and reply to them, because these replies won't write themselves. The FlipGrip is a great product. I like it. You don't. By all means though. You should start a thread. Everyone's waiting for your hot take.
