Two new controller handle colors are coming, one of which has never been tried before. What will they be? Who will get to name them? You can see them in about 10 days.

tie dye?

 

Don't laugh with this suggestion. I consulted with the manufacturer last year about something along those lines but my mold was not set up for it.

Fresh off the boat are my 2 new handle colors. Mike and Brandon guessed the colors correctly of purple and gold, now who can come up with a good name for them? The Gold handle has gold metallic glitter while all my other handles are silver metallic.

 

As usual a free handle to the person who comes up with the name I use. Any clever or funny names may get awarded an extra handle as I see fit.
