Why does the quote say I said that tongue.gif I like the g303 shape about as much as the g100s, but while there are things that could be improved on both they are 2 of the best shapes available imo.

i don't often bother with hyperglides anymore though. i use hard pad so it's not really a problem when feet aren't smoothed out like hyperglides are. i mostly just "punch" 5mm teflon circles after i apply double-sided tape. cheapy cheapy!
sometimes i even just cut an ugly rectangle with scissors, works for me!

Yeah, you're right. I bought into the Hyperglide hype once already and I was thinking to myself: "Somebody must've been laughing their asses off when they decided to provide white mouse feet that are of the same material as the stock feet and sell it at a ripoff premium price" thumb.gif

Quite right, so what's wrong with that?

Every Company has a right to sell something "EXCLUSIVE" to it's customers, even though there is nothing different besides the colour.

That is how Cars, Fridges, TVs, Stereos and a million other things are sold these days. Just show me the COLOUR 2cents.gif .

There was a market for hyperglides once. At one time, replacement mouse skates were not available from anyone, unless you built them yourself, and not every person has the tools or time to build one. People on this forum sometimes think that EVERYONE should build their own stuff, just like people think everyone should mod their own custom arcade joysticks and get modified PCBS and solder and padhack everything. This is part of the good old "ego elitist" attitude you get when learning something that other people don't know.

Hyperglides were the ONLY game in town back when the Deathadder and MX518 and Diamondback and Microsoft IME 3.0 were the most common mice. Unless you could convince Razer to send you replacement feet, that was what you had to deal with. How does that make hyperglide an evil, selfish capitalistic pig abusing company? They're a company. if you were running a company you'd do the same thing.

Hyperglide feet are still high quality and well cut. The only real issue is sometimes you might get a set where the glue tape comes off the pad before it's even on the mouse, but that's rare (and you can RMA for that). But they were expensive..

Nowadays, with cheap ($$) and decent quality hotline games feet out there, that are *BETTER* than the stock feet, even if they aren't fully up to the level of hyperglides, for the price you pay, isn't that good enough? (Tiger Gaming feet are garbage Hyperglide clones that are mated to two surfaces that are not even on a firm surface (the white top gets dented, but they're "okay" for hard pads). Hotline games F4 and even performance (original) feet are the only ones people should be buying.

i might try with some putty i bought from amazon, just to make the diamond-shaped butt rounder.

anyone who has debraided the cable? the mouse is light and the cable heavy in comparison so it pulls the mouse when you throw it around.

Don't see much difference on a cloth pad once they break in. Tigers were fine to me, although Hotline seemed more well-polished.

On topic - tried the OP mouse at a store recently. It's so well-built but so poorly shaped. Preference, of course, but it's corners are even more aggressively shaped than those on Abyssus, which is already built for a pure claw grip.

Separate levers for main buttons feel almost too good; the only drawback could be more dirt collected over time. Razer and co. shells feel like a cheap piece of plastic compared to this one. Unsure if it's plain ABS with some coating and/or treatment to it or a more expensive material.

I have removed the braid from the cable. There's no glue between the underlying rubber cable and the braid, so removing it works without problem. The cable that's hidden under the braid is nice. It feels soft and flexible and is still pretty thick.

I can't quite judge how much better the cable got after removing the braid. It's not a lot better, I think, but I can't really remember how it felt with the braid.

At some point I just bought these Teflon-"Plates"
https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00C9IB1Q8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Had to clean them a bit, just put some doublesided tape on it, used a regular office-punch to basically get the same like the MX-2 Hyperglides (IIRC), bent them flat and used some sandpaper on the edges. thumb.gif

Much cheaper and works just fine. And got a looooot more for the money.

EDIT:

Added a picture just to show how much I could get out of one plate.

So I went ahead and got myself the g303 and then ran it thorugh the mousetester used here on OCN and got these weird results (drawing a circle):

N2uDIAo.pngLihQXTN.png

What is that? It looks nothing like the other charts being posted here to OCN

The mouse seems to be working fine (I even went so far as to purchase from Logitech directly, in the hopes of avoiding any models with the sensor rattle), and the issue dissapears when setting the polling rate to 125Hz.

Settings are 3000 cpi (3200 as measured by mousetester), Angle Snapping off, EPP off, Windows sensitivity at 6, and the mouse is on a cloth pad.

I'm not sure. Nothing there looks weird to me other than that you are doing a microscopic circle I guess? If you are doing a large circle then I have no idea, but this just looks like the mouse is hardly moving. You are probably getting some delayed reports that are causing the spikes in the second graph, but according to the first graph you are only moving the mouse like 0.03 m/s.
