The Deathadder Megathread - Page 22

post #211 of 2478
Thread Starter 
There's no doubt about the fact that you can fingertip grip or clawgrip a Deathadder. However smaller mice, especially kinzuadders, are much more comfortable to fingertip grip and a smaller mouse allows more room for fingertip control. Keep in mind i have big ass, 8.5" hands.

Make a massive difference, don't they.

Are there better mice on the market at a DA's price point for RTS games (plan to also use it to play some FPS games later)? I have avg sized hands and use fingertip-claw grip

Try out the Abyssus.

Hello Deathadder owners. I have a question for you, especially for the BE owners. That portion around the sensor (it says: 3.5G Infrared sensor . precision 3500 DPI [hope u got it]) started to peel off. I read all this thread and i noticed that this happens with most BE cos of the very thin feet, so the bottom is scratching my goliathus control edition which isn't good for that written part around the sensor(aesthetic wise) nor for my gliding experience. In my country (Romania) i can only find the Corepad ones, hope they're OK cos i just ordered them(2 sets). Now i'm asking you: Should i put both of the sets onto the default ones? so that i have 3 layers (lowering the LOD as effect would be also good)? or one set onto the default is enough? or remove the default and put both new sets? Appreciate the upcoming help from u guys! Cheers.
post #214 of 2478
I think 1 set on top of default should be enough. putting 2 sets might be too high. If 1 set isn't enough, tape fix it. Don't bother wasting the second set, save it in case.

And yes corepad are great skates.

I once tried stacking mouse feet on a Deathadder and it gave me weird sensor behavior. The mouse seemed to be running at a lower CPI and it was really easy to make it skip, keep in mind I did this with a tape fix in place so it may behave differently if you just stack the feet without using a tape fix.
post #216 of 2478
Corepads are really good plus you get 2 sets which is really great. But the best skates i have ever used glidewise are still the GlidePro http://www.alugraphics.de/shop/accessories/glidePRO-mouseglides--241.html (even though they dont offer customized glides). Just a sidenote, if some of you guys are low sense gamers who prefer hardpads this one http://www.alugraphics.de/shop/gaming/gamerPRO/gamerPRO-XXL-ESL--227.html is the best pad with the best tracking i have ever owned (and it comes with a 10 years warranty as well).
post #217 of 2478
Coprepads are fine. ANY pure Teflon pas will work. They don't even necessarily have to be the right shape (although it's much more aesthetically pleasing and ensures a uniform height with the originals, for stacking purposes)


At any rate, I've got 2 sets of hyperhlides on my original v2 3G DA WITHOUT tape fix, and a set of corepads on top of the original feet on my BE WITH tape fix(technically its a V3 3G in the shell of a BE).

Both setups work flawlessly (perfect tracking, no drag) on my Black Goliathus Speed and Green/Black Mantis Control pads.

Doubling feet will slightly lower the DPI/CPI. It will not degrade performance even with tape (unless you are using a v2 3G DA. in other words the black edition is safe) so once you get used to it and compensate it is no problem.

I would not triple the feet. I see no reason to as doubling will fix glide issues and tripling is a waste of feet and will SIGNIFICANTLY lower DPI and may cause issues with the tape fix.

Alright, thank you all for help. I'll put one set over default feet and save the other for days which won't come cos im playing on soft pad and always will ;d.
Now about that tape fix, i've never done that, is it really good to do for the tracking and overall performance of the mouse? I would try, but i dont really know which type to use and where exactly to place it..
post #219 of 2478
Place some tape in the red area. Careful not to cover the sensor 'cause that will affect tracking. Try some scotch tape.

i only have transparent scotch frown.gif i suppose its useless, right?
