I wouldn't know tbh. I'm just basing this on the way people test it with CD's.

Sean your correct, I wasn't figuring in removing the old feet. However, most stock feet are much thinner then 1mm, I believe the mouse feet on my razer are .5mm. Hyperglides are known to be really great and a good thickness and even those are .8mm. So if we figure say you have .5mm stock feet and you add on 1.2mm feet, you have added 7mm which, comes really close.

I think the spawn for example, stops all tracking at 1.2mm, sensors like that usually will have a hard time tracking until they get closer to the surface. So with a permanent 7mm added over your stock feet, you could be in that zone where the sensor tracks but not fully. I mean, I'm not sure, but hopefully there isn't a problem. I absolutely love hyperglides but they only add .3mm from your traditional stock feet.

Could be close though, especially if you factor in some people using white/light colored mousepads as well.

thats right. but... does a 1.2 mm feet increase the overall tallness of the mouse?

You could always sand down the adhesive side of the glide and then lap them smooth to remove a some height from them. It'd be one hell of a job though just to put some new glides on your mouse

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.


-Packaging:




-Contents:




-Close up of skates (Colour like the blue crystal meth in Breaking Bad)




-Thickness



-Installed




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 .



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 ) 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.

To bad they didn't round off the edges like hyperglides. =(

After gaming for a good few hours over the weekend these have broken in beautifully. Very low friction and extremely smooth now.

When is it going to be up for order?
