My hands are decently big, but the XL is still a bit too big for me. The only way I can hold it for long periods of time without feeling discomfort is if I keep my palms off of the system.

Not to mention, the Circle Pad on the XL is far worse than the one on the original. It's much smaller, and very slippery. I can barely keep my thumb on it.

Overall I think the XL is better than the original, but I just want to be able to hold it comfortably. Are there any good accessories for that?

Odd, the circle pad felt the same exact size for me when handling both.

Really? Fits into my hands like a glove. I love holding the thing.

I find myself adjusting my hands more often than I usually have to with my XL, so for me as well, it's a bit awkward to hold. I have been thinking about looking to see if there's any kind of grip case thing out there for the XL that would give it a more comfortable console controller like feeling.

Anyone know of anything out there like I described for the XL?

"It's much smaller, and very slippery. I can barely keep my thumb on it."

Buy rubber gloves and cut the thumb part off. I'm not kidding i have done that trick when i played MHFU because my hands sweat a lot when i get nervous.

If the play the Wii U's giant controller screen thingy, the XL seems downright tiny. Perhaps that would help you adjust?

X: X... you called me X... is that my name?
Dr. Light: That's right. It's a variable. It represents unlimited potential.
