The long-awaited announcement of the first third-party PlayStation 5 controller has finally arrived. Scuf has announced the release of its new Reflex, Reflex Pro, and Reflex FPS controllers, all of which are developed particularly for the PlayStation 5.

Despite the fact that the Scuf Reflex appears nearly identical to the standard DualSense on the surface, there are numerous tiny upgrades to be discovered. What distinguishes the Reflex line is a set of removable rear control paddles, which are the most significant addition. These rear paddles operate in a similar manner to those found on the Xbox Elite Series 2, but you have the option of reprogramming or disabling them at any time by pressing a small rubber button on the back of the console.

The Reflex and Reflex Pro retain Sony’s adaptive triggers, but the Reflex FPS replaces them with immediate triggers that may be activated with a single tap, much like a mouse button, in order to improve performance.

A second feature of the Reflex is its swappable thumbsticks, which can be changed out for different lengths and shapes such as long, short, domed, and concave. The faceplate trim around the thumbsticks is also detachable in case you want to change the color of the thumbsticks themselves.

The Reflex series will be available in a variety of hues including white and gray. It will also be available in black, orange, navy blue, and red. Although only the black version will be available at launch, additional colours will be made available over the course of the next weeks and months.

It’s worth mentioning that the Scuf Reflex isn’t the first non-Sony PlayStation 5 controller to enter the market — custom companies have been making controllers for years. Despite the fact that HexGaming and AimControllers have both released customized DualSense controllers in the past, this is the first major firm to release its own PS5 controller to far. Let’s hope that other manufacturers, such as Astro, would follow suit and expand the number of possibilities available on the market.

The Scuf Reflex line is currently in stock, with the baseline controller retailing for $199 USD. The Scuf Reflex Pro and Scuf Reflex FPS are available for purchase for $229 and $259.
