Not everyone would like the hassle of having to replace the teflon tape. I have used stuff like this before and I'm not so sure if technology has improved it over the years but my experience with these is that it comes off relatively easier than mousefeet. It's either going to come off or slide out of place. Mice are designed to have shallow 'grooves' where the mousefeet rest and that kinda prevents and helps the adhesive from moving laterally. Not unless you cut the tape to the exact specific shape of those grooves.... which is quite a hassle already... plus I doubt that would be thick enough to rest inside the groove.
If this kind of tape is something you stick OVER the current mousefeet then I'm guessing you're going to have a hard time maintaining it there. Plus you'll also have to maintain that no sticky gunk and adhesive residue goes astray in the bottom of the mouse. Nothing feels worse than a mouse with some adhesive gunk at the bottom.
If it doesn't move around that would really be perfect. I just think people specially those with sweaty palms and wrists would have a problem maintaining the tape from moving. Moisture is always the enemy of these adhesives.Edited by shogrran - 11/11/12 at 12:57pm
