Bought a black one of these circle pads to play the latest monster hunter, as I find the new 3ds circle pad slips around under my thumb. I must say I am not dissapointed! I've been using it for about a week now and it feels great, solved my slipping problem and looks awesome too! I must say I haven't experienced any of the 'scratching' issues mentioned below, however I did use a can of compressed air to blow away any dust that may be on the circle pad before I installed it (as suggested below). This is a brillaint product and I would highly recommend to anyone. Thankyou!
