Right now I am using a blue Hien to slightly raise the LOD on the Zowie mice. When I want maximum LOD and performance I will use the red Hien for the Zowie mice. I will not use black pads with the Zowie mice.
For the DeathAdder 3.5G I use the red Hien (due to texture
) to decrease the LOD. I didn't find the blue Hien to lower LOD enough for me to want to use it over the red. I don't want to use black cloth for the DeathAdder. Which means I will not use black cloth for the Kana v2 as well.Comment (Click to show)

the more important thing is not the HIGH LOD, it's the way you appreciate it. If you can easily adapt your liftin' when repositionning or not. Plus, it doesnt hurt your wrist like low LOD adaptation did.
Lots of players go more than 3cd when repositionning their mice, without any effect on speed or accuracy.
but damn, 4.5 is high. why Steelseries? why so much? at this level of nonsense, I think they made it on purpose... they dont want to release the perfect mouse qo that customers will still researching and buying other SS mouses....
if you want to keep selling, never do it perfect
I doubt SteelSeries does bad things to their mice to make you want to buy another/different one later. That would do the opposite of what they want. You want to build a following for your products. When someone asks, "what is the best mouse to buy", it should be their product that is mentioned first.
I think a LOD of 2.5mm is the maximum, anything above that is bothersome. With the standard lens lift off on black cloth should be tuned for 2-2.5mm, that way when used on a certain texture it doesn't go below 1.25mm.
As you tilt the mouse the angle increases/decreases with the LOD before it stops tracking. So with a 2.5mm LOD it's ~5mm for one side to be tilted before it stops tracking. With the Zowie mice the tilt angle can be very low on certain mouse pads, which causes issues when you swipe the mouse. I think the absolute lowest LOD on red cloth would be 1.25-1.5mm. I prefer to use a LOD of ~2mm, this is why I use my blue mouse pad with some mice.
3 CDs is about 3.6-3.9mm. Which is close to what Takasta is saying. That is about what the 3.5G does. I cannot use such a high LOD with my very low sensitivity. It ruins my accuracy and reaction time.
It's funny! I was thinking the Kana v2 would rival the DeathAdder 3.5G in performance -- forgot about the LOD necessary for that. Edited by popups - 8/23/13 at 9:02am
