For some reason, Xai grinding against mousepad.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a Xai and 9HD and for some reason after gaming for a good while today, my feet are grinding against the mouse pad, both are obviously clean and have been wiped but it won't stop... Seems to effect the top half of the mouse more.

I only got these new feet a month ago so I shouldnt need new ones. It just feels as if I have bits of sand on my mouse glides, when they are perfectly clean and so is the mouse pad... :/

Check the plastic gliders on the mouse. Are they perfectly flat?

Has to be the edges of the feets. They aren't rounded are they?

have same issue with both my mice. i replaced the aging feet on my logitech mx revolution with some Slick Surf pads. they were great for a little while, then they got all scratched up and are noisy as hell.
bought a brand new mamba last week and i can already feel and hear a difference in the pads. no where near as bad as the other mouse but they arent as quiet as they were when i first got the mamba. ive cleaned my func f10s daily before usage and even double check with a quick wipedown now and then in between. i really dont know why they cant make feet that dont get trashed so easily on hard mouse mats.

Yeah, the mouse glides even though I bought them just a month or two ago have scratches alllll over, thats probably the problem.

Can anyone suggest what to do? I only got these glides a month ago and they have this grinding feeling, making noise, have tons of scratches, and I haven't mishandled it at all. Any other glides on the market besides Steelseries and PureTrak ones?

PureTrak glides are terrible. Just get some hyperglides.

The MS-2 version fits Xai better.

If the stock feet are good, then stick with those for a while. Scratches shouldn't effect the feel of a mouse that much, and as far as I know, the Xai's feet are pretty good as they are.

To my knowledge, PureTrak are only good at making pads.
