Given that people are able to get tremendous improvements in reaction speed by doing extremely ghetto mods, I can imagine that those gains can be made much more significant by using microswitches that trigger with less force.

For reference, the poster above me ended up with an almost 20% gain on the fastest end of the spectrum, and roughly a 10% gain (probably more on average noting what he said) on the slower end. That difference is massive. Yet, it's completely ignored on almost all levels. Why?
Because that would call for a more scientific test to be really taken seriously. The average person doesn't care about milliseconds of delay when playing games. They will use 60Hz monitors, wireless keyboards and mice.

The switches are "leaf" springs; so variance will be there. Trying to reduce the actuation force will increase the fail rate during production and thereby increase costs. Can also reduce the life of the switch. Even if you did do this -- not everyone wants such sensitive switches -- they would be to unforgiving.

Additionally the shell of the mouse would have to be made with tighter tolerances to make use of such switches. The DeathAdder has a little take up before it starts to actuate the switch, that reduces your response time.

In short, too much effort for very little reward, that will go unseen by the masses. Easier to just bend the pole (reduce total travel) closer to the contact yourself.

Yes, but I only faintly remember the stock feet...They got overlapped by the hyperglides so quickly after purchasing the mouse...

They are noticeably faster. Though my originals were worn.

I put some Diamondback Hyper-Glide feet on my DeathAdder to decrease the LOD by 0.5-0.8mm. They are louder on my Artisan Shiden Kai than the originals. That could be because of a few reasons. At least the bottom of the mouse doesn't hit the pad anymore.

Look at Hot Line games mouse feet on Ebay. Cheaper and seem just as good. You can get them in 0.18mm or 0.5mm. If you are using a black cloth pad you might want to look at Puretrak 1.2mm feet. I like the 0.5mm for my pad as it gives me about 2mm LOD, which I find to be a good in between.

I will soon get the hyperglides(probably monday), when I do I can compare it to Razers own aftermarket black skatez. The original skatez sucks, and so does corepads skatez. Razers own black aftermarket skatez are really nice, they are rounded and comes nicely packaged with alcoholswabs. They feel a lot more exclusive than the hyperglides. I've used hyperglides in the past, but when they were out of stock I took the chance and tried corepads and razers.

On a hard mat, maybe. On soft? nope.

I haven't noticed any real performance difference between the Hyperglides and Razers own aftermarket skatez. Razer comes in a more exclusive package, but the hyperglides looks to be better made as the corners are rounded. It's hard for me to tell if there is any real difference as I've been using my G400 (with corepad skatez) as primary mouse during the time of the swap, and that mouse glides better than the DA with both skatez. So even if the Hyperglides are better than the Razers, the glide still doesn't feel perfect. I always "break in" my skatez by pressing the mouse down on my ultimat (smooth alupad) and run the mouse in circles for a longer time, and then I push the mouse really hard on a QcK to make the glides even smoother. Otherwise it's common that the skatez doesn't feel as good as they could, if there is a corner or something that's getting stuck on the mousepad the feeling won't be optimal. I also bought the Puretraks perfectglide HD, but I only got the 2 skatez for the front of the mouse :S, and I haven't bother dealing with it. If they can't count to three, fcuk it wheee.gif but if they read this and want to show how awesome their customer support is whistle.gif, they can happily PM me. Doesn't matter what company it is, or what you are buying, there's always a chance that the product is faulty, it's just how it is.

Does the tape fix for the DeathAdder affect tracking at all? I put a piece of opaque scotch tape over the sensor of my 3.5G DA and it's LOD is now less than 1 CD.
