New PureTrak PerfectGlide | HD™

Just saw on their facebook that they are starting to make some hyperglide style skates

PureTrak PerfectGlide | HD™

Someone asked if they are like hyperglide

Same glide feeling yes, but will feature a 1.2mm thickness rather than the 0.8mm thickness of HyperGlide products

***Updated with impressions***

Just got these today. First of all thanks to Puretrak for providing/upgrading me with these HD skates for the Razer Deathadder. Now on to some impressions and pictures.

Once installed I set it down on the Puretrak talent. Instantly I could feel the scrap of the sharp edges of the glides. Now I thought these would have rounded edges like the hyperglide and while they are not quite as bad as steelseries or Corepad glides they were still scratching and IMO this needs sorting.

However I've come across this many times and it needs about 10 mins to sort. So first you need to scrap your nail at a 45 degree angle around the outside of all the skate edges. See picture....sorry for my bad nails tongue.gif.

Now place it on a wooden surface and wax on wax off like Daniel-san for 5 mins. Skates will now be rounded and smooth. Shouldn't have to be done but there it is.

Height wise these are superb for Deathadder 3.5G which does suffer from a high LOD. Fitment is fantastic. The glide feels smooth at the moment. I'd imagine its possible for these to smooth down to hyperglide level of friction but its too early to say, however its certainly not going to be too far off.

So I'm a big fan of cloth pads (man of the cloth biggrin.gif) combined with low level friction skates. I love hyperglides and would say these arent quite there purely because of the sharpish edges.

However given how easy that is to fix, and the lead time on hypers, I'd go for these as my skate of choice from now on. Just need to see how they settle in first but its looking good so far. These are much much better then the high friction Perfect glide skates that puretrak also offers.


OK there we go. Hope that someone finds my ramblings of interest.

About time. The first wave of puretrak glides were horrible.

As long as these just blatantly copy hyperglides they should be perfect.

These should be going up in a few days on their site. I'll grab a set for the deathadder and post up impressions as soon as they arrive.

hmm it might be dangerous to make the feet 1.2mm in thickness. Don't some mice with great LOD stop tracking at 1.2mm (1 CD)?

Good point you bring here, My spawn have hard time to track at 1CD with the lastest firmware, so..Yes, it will not track on the HD glides.
But I'm sure it will on the first fixed firmware.

But I dont really see whats wrong with the stock spawn..they pretty sliperry and have good control, just need to CM Spawn to make a replacement-unites for sale.

I talked with carter earlier and he said they are planning to release replacement feet soon biggrin.gif

Thanks you very much for the update, very nice to hear! :]

Well, most feet(I think) are placed in indentations, if that makes sense. So I guess it would be a little less than 1.2mm.

Isn't the lift-off-distance measured from the original feet of the mouse? It would seem silly to measure the lift-off-distance from the sensor because the sensor is recessed and further from the tracking surface.

If that is the case, then you'd subtract the original mouse-feet thickness from the replacements to find out if they would work. So if the original feet are 1mm thick, and the replacements are 1.5mm thick, then you're only adding .5mm to the mouse. So if the original lift-off-distance was 1.2mm, then the new distance would become .7mm (1.2mm - .5mm).

Someone correct me if this is wrong.
