i bought some metal ones once but the grip around the edges dug in after a while. My launch pad sticks have started degrading after fishing in rdr2 of all things. Always wondered what people were doing to make the rubber flake off, now i know.

My launch PS4 pad had quite soft sticks which after a couple years were showing some very light wear.
I bought a PS4 pro at launch and noticed the sticks were a lot firmer, felt like plastic rather than rubber. They still aren't showing any sign of wear at all

I liked the feel of the original ones but the left stick wore through badly on both of mine. I don't even really play that much. I guess it must be intense when I do!
Not going for metal, I can't imagine they'll feel as nice,or be as grippy.
