Reducing the 'gloss' from white Zowie mice?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
tried searching but couldn't find anything about this.. basically can't use this mouse because i can't stand the gloss, but i'm not able to refund it.

has anyone had any success in removing most of the glossy paint from a white zowie mouse? if so, what method did you use? i'm guessing sanding it down might help, but i'm not too sure. i just wish these came in the same crappy plastic as the wmo.

thanks.

yep, pretty much all i can think of is highly fine sand paper, maybe 1000 grit , then 2000 grit, then 4000 grit.

I sanded down the sides of my deathadder and that worked out great. YMMV and I take no responsibility smile.gif

I sanded my glossy Abyssus with okay results, but ultimately I ended up putting some chunky textured spraypaint on it for even more grip.

Buy a black Zowie. Problem solved.

I don't understand why you bought a glossy mouse to remove the gloss. There is nothing wrong with the white Zowie mice to do that.

I sanded a mouse before and regretted it immensely. I couldn't maintain a grip on it.
