The red Mario joycons unfortunately don't match the paint on this which is a real shame, looks nice with black tho

Are you talking about the dark red joy cons from the odyssey console bundle? I have used them on both this and the same colour of red odyssey comfort grip and find the 2 tone shades of red works nicely (see attached pic). But it is just a taste thing I guess?

It should be close to a 100% colour match on the red joy cons like you get with the blue/red joy con console bundle, if your fussy about 100% matching colour. Although I don't think many people have both of the light shade red joy cons yet anyway, most just have 1 x light red joy con.

The black comfort grip you mention surely looks best with yellow joy cons? I can't see how a black grip suits the red joy cons any better than a red Mario themed grip, but each to their own.

Yeah, odyssey bundle. Grip should match that and if the middle was black it would be smart as
Don't get me wrong it's a decent price I just wish it matched
One of Hori or PowerA are soon releasing a new range of new colour/themed grips. Can't remember which one it is as messaged them both and one of them replied to me with this info. I expect it might be Zelda/Mario themed grips, it usually is that sort of stuff.

Thanks for posting. Ordered this along with the Monopoly AND a skylanders set to get the free P&P.

Sorry for confusion, I'm saying the red Mario grip looks nice with the grey joycons as pictured

Does that red match the Mario joycons ?

Not made by Nintendo themselves, third party Power A stuff always feels inferior in quality and as somebody else pointed the red is a slightly different red to the mario joycons

No I don't think so as looks the same shade. Should match the light red joy cons though.

I have been using a black Nintendo made comfort grip, that came with console, and the red Odessy grip, and the red Mario Pipe grip in this deal post since Christmas. I see no noticeable performance difference so far in any of the grips.

To be honest at £5.99, it is pretty good buy right? for a nice themed grip whatever concerns over quality you might have.
