The problem are the low profile mouse feet.
The mouse starts to drag because the plastic that is around the lens gets in contact with my cloth pad.

Put another set of mouse feet on it? Costs like $10 to get some new mouse feet. (Or IIRC my FK came with another set already, I just stuck it on there on top of the other ones)

I contacted them last week about why they don't support the kana v2.
That It was not listed and hassle with support in drivers.

Got replied that this should be fixed "soon", guess they actually did something then biggrin.gif Good stuff.
Hope driver support gets fixed aswell.

My FK won't work on my black cloth Corepad Deskpad anymore if I do that.

Anyway, I acknowledge it's a concern for you, but I'm happy for low LOD as it is very beneficial for anyone who does not accidentally lift/tilt while swiping.
1.2mm on Qck? damn... I must have had a bad serie :-/
Well it doesnt matter anymore, it had gone to the trash since my cat pee on it -_-

This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.

Even different mouse feet make more of a difference than a different mousepad. However, I'm talking about cloth pads only. I don't consider hard pads to be valid options. But even if you're saying that the difference between a hard pad and cloth pad is more significant than the difference between mice, you're still ridiculously incorrect. My god man...

I'd like to apologize for this rant. I assume you're either a casual gamer who's never played a game that required a top mouse, or all you've used are **** mice that have been labled as "gaming" mice.

Stick in the washing machine with your clothes?? I've had a mantis control for years and it's no harder than another cloth pad to clean.

Whatever the grip may be, one should be able to hold the mouse on the mousepad, even with fingertip or claw.
Why should the mouse keep tracking when not in contact with the mousepad, so just some people won't need to adapt to it? Wrong way imo.

Zowie is doing it (but not completely) right.
Agreed. Some people have just gotten used to this flaw.

that's my oppinion from my experience.
and playing on clothpad or hard pad is like night and day, while playing with not optimal mice(which mice are so awful nowadays that they are like unusable?) is still the same game.
