Steelseries Glide Dot

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
1. What is in that stuff?
2. Does it cause 'gunk' and 'muck' on the mouse and mousepad? Does it make things worse by making the bottom of the mouse collect dust?

Some sort of oil. Maybe silicone? I used to have it, wore off after couple hours of playing. Really only works on hardpads where the oils don't get absorbed. Didn't really cause muck or dust build up. Made things way too slippery.

Would love to know what it is made of.

Just as I still yearn to know what fUnc Liquid was made of.

You can be sure that they buy whatever is is for a few pennies for gallon, bottle it in tiny containers, then charge the living s**t out of it to gullible gamers like us.

I'm using steelseries sensei on a razer sphex. It's already pretty glide-y but i want extreme glide. Has anyone tried any substitute or tried other cheaper products with the same effect?

Could just buy an I-2 mousepad or aluminium mousepad.

They should make a Teflon mouse pad. With Teflon mouse feet, that thing would fly.

I have googled a bit on the "fUnc liqUid antifriction", it seems more popular then the steelseries glide dot but i would think they are very similar. It seems i cant find anything but good opinions on the usage of this fUnc liqUid, although i have not yet read any in depth opinion/review for it, so it might just be people being really happy with how it feels right after it has been applied.

If these type of liquids really are so good, why arent more peoplg talking about it? Has anyone used it for a longer time and if so, what is your verdict?

I will be getting the fUnc liqUid, it doesnt really cost much anyways so.

If you want superb glide try hurricane mouse feet (google itaktech, dude called Takasta selling them worldwide), the low surface area means the glide is enormously slick.

Combine with an Icemat, or a Shiden Kai for best results.

Thanks for the tip. So its these? http://www.itaktech.com/abyssus-h5.html

And the surface we see on the pics is the surface that will touch the mousepad? And the idea is that since its "stripes" of teflon the low surface area will make for superb glide?
