lo0ks AWESOME !

Thanks for the feedback guys : ] appreciate it.

This may be a silly question but do larger mouse feet have less friction than smaller feet? I've got a WMO with some tiger gaming mouse feet and it glides really easily while the kana with the stock feet feels kinda sticky, so was wondering if I should just use the WMO feet I have or buy the larger steelseries feet.

Bigger feet means more contact between mouse and mousepad. More contact results in more friction.

Well the stock mouse feet on the kana v2 are horrible. I'm going to order new mouse skatez soon.

Imo material used is more important than the actual size.

Just got my Kana v2, so far very pleased. Almost as good as a 3310 Avior but a shape similar to the Zowie AM/FK.

Only downside for some people might indeed be the lift off distance but I actually like it rather high biggrin.gif

By the standard laws of physics, friction is actually completely unrelated to surface area, only the normal force and coefficient.

Thanks for the replies. I went ahead and replaced the feet with some tiger gaming WMO feet and they are definitely smoother.
