If you’re after a controller for your PS5 or PC that has more customization features than the standard DualSense, you might to check out this deal on the Razer Wolverine V2 Pro. Over at eBay, you can get a refurbished Wolverine V2 Pro for only $159. The Wolverine V2 Pro regularly costs $250, so this is a pretty great deal, especially since the controller was refurbished by Razer and guaranteed to look and function like a new controller.

Better yet, the controller comes with a two-year warranty. If the controller doesn’t meet your standards, you can return it for free within 30 days (you also get free shipping).

Each controller has been restored directly by Razer and received eBay’s refurbished stamp of approval. The Wolverine V2 Pro is an interesting alternative to the premium DualSense Edge–that one costs $200 new–as you’re getting a controller with Razer’s mecha-tactile face and shoulder buttons that have shorter actuaction distance, an eight-way microswitch D-pad for more accurate gaming, and trigger locks.

There are also six remappable buttons, interchangeable thumbsticks, and Razer’s trademark flair via chroma RGB lighting that snakes its way across the device. With the Razer controller app, which is available on mobile and PC, you can remap inputs and set up custom profiles.

It’s worth noting you don’t get the adaptive triggers, haptic feedback, or a built-in speaker–so these omissions should be weighed before going the third-party route.

Overall, this is a solid controller to consider for competitive gaming in fighting game and first-person shooter genres. Plus, it has offset analog sticks, so if you favor the Xbox controller layout, that’s a big plus.

The Wolverine V2 Pro isn’t the only third-party, pro-style controller for PS5. Another controller you should consider is the Victrix Pro BFG, a modular wireless controller with the form factor of Xbox controllers. You can reconfigure the sticks to either be parallel or offset. The Pro BFG comes with a six-button fighting game module, too. The modular features plus four remappable back buttons, multiple D-pad styles, and customizable trigger stops make the Victrix Pro BFG the most versatile PS5 controller around. Victrix is releasing a new white colorway for $174 later this month. In March, the Pro BFG will be available for Xbox.
