Mouse feet replacement questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a G400 mouse, the feet are pretty worn out. I saw these - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14592/pad-253/Corepad_Skatez_Pro_-_Logitech_G400_MX518v2.html?tl=g39c51s418&id=yWorVaqY

Are the original mouse feet that come with the mouse made of teflon? Or are these like aftermarket mouse feet that are superior to the stock ones? Also I was browsing some other forums and I see the word skates thrown around. What exactly are they? I thought I read that they stick over the original feet? Would that be better? And does anyone know if there are mouse feet/skates that are superior than the stock ones or are they all the same thing really?

Some people call them skates; some call them feet. They're the same thing.

I'm not sure about the other questions, but it probably depends on the mouse and what replacements you buy. I don't think that Logitech's feet or Corepads are pure Teflon, but I know that Hyperglides and Puretrak HD are. Note that Puretrak also has feet that aren't pure Teflon, for less money.

Ok thanks. Does anyone know if the G500 feet are the same exact ones on a G400? They look exactly the same but I don't know if there is a miniscule difference between them.

They're different. If you want replacement feet for your G400 then you need to buy some that are for the MX518v2 or well uh the G400 thumb.gif. The ones you linked in the OP will work fine. If you decide to buy from Puretrak then I suggest that you triple check with them before you think about buying G400 feet because they sent me the wrong feet even after I emailed them before making my purchase and they never made things right.
