    I was just curious of how many people use their controller wrist straps Because ive been reading threads and read about the wrist straps i personally dont unless my cousins are around (because they threw my controller into a wall thank god no damage to my wii remote only a few scratches) or im by an expensive object like a giant t.v.. Im sorry if some one else brought this, Im pretty new here and im not sure if there is a search function or not and im definetely not going to read through 380 pages of threads to find out.

    I don't ever use mine at all.
    I only did when I started out playing my Wii.

    And now especially with the new Wii Jackets, there is good enough grips there, you could disregard the wrist straps entirely.
    I still make some people use em when I have them over to play etc.

    I use it. Flinging the remote into an open can of catfood wasn't great.

    i don't use mine anymore, i only did when i just got it, or like phillipeno said, when i play w/ other ppl so they don't break it (btw, phillipeno, you must really have a bad relationship w/ ur cousin!). besides, i don't really have any physically demanding games where it would require i fling the remote around.

    I dont have many either a lot of my games i sit down and play and you usually dont have much movement playing those games. if i stand up it is comfortable and your legs get tired fast if your not moving the only game i really stand for is wii sports.

    I use mine simply as a precaution. I know in my mind I'll never accidentally throw the thing but its just a habit I picked up since I was UBER careful when I first got it.

    I use mine every time. I've never actually thrown mine, (I did hit a table and cut my fingers up though :/ ) but I know that I will if I don't wear it. If I hit my TV or one of my consoles (besides the Wii) I would probably go hang myself. Everybody that comes over gets pissed at me because I'm always yelling at them to put the strap on....

    I only wore the wrist-strap for a few days after I bought the console, then I stopped wearing it altogether. To this day, I haven't dropped, thrown or killed someone using my Wiimote.
