Skates on mouse getting to thin?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Lately I find my mouse to be catching on stuff. Like I'll be using it and the place where the grip is, this is a G9X, there is no skate, and never was, but it's been catching stuff lately. I assume my other skates have worn off.

10$...

Pretty expensive. I also lost the other grip for my mouse which does have a skate on that side thing. I don't know where I lost it, as I searched my room and nothing.

I hear you can cut up a teflon-coated guitar pick or two for budget mouse skates.

There was a guy selling "mouse tape", I remember it was cheap for the amount of teflon surface you could cover in comparison to those custom skates.
It was pretty simple to use, just cover the skates with strips of the tape and you're done.

And here it is: http://www.mousetape.com/

I'm not really sure how it is but it may be a more cost effective solution than getting some Hyperglides.

Contact Logitech, they maybe send you new ones (they have done tthat often enough).
