In the image section the guy has a picture of the cable w/ his rival. If I took that same picture you'd see cables spilling out the front from that same angle. There's basically no room to bend them under the pcb - so I put the excess cable on the top part of the pcb and bent them into a corner but still spills u.u

Can you make some sort of cable stop around that part so when you put the excess wires inside the mouse it can no longer spill out?

hmm, I never face such kind of problem. I always put as many as necessary cable and fix it somehow. Sometimes with the heatshrink, sometimes with the pcb screwed to the shell, or a screw holds the cable... I have no G303, but I have a G302 w/o any problem.

Yeah I could try to wrap around a lot of electrical tape until it's so large on the inside that it can't fit outside the exit hole

I'm not really sure what would fix it

Like in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VP8mUAnLW7s

You can see the sleeve seems to fit perfectly fine - at no point is there any spill. If I just begin using the mouse the extra cable will just begin to push out. I'll try and get some screenshots when I open it up again later if you want - but even with both heat shrinks I still ran into the issue :PP I probably should have had you purchase the mouse and install it instead of try to do it myself - since you have the extra tools to make changes to the wires and what not



By the way does anyone know why they don't use these type of sleeves on regular gaming mice? Are they too fragile for careless gamers?

I was wondering the other day that if someone on ebay sells those rubber stops that you find on most mice Link.... however it seems like its molded directly to the cable itself... if its possible to cut it out and place it on the paracord with a few drops of superglue it should work better than electrical tape.

I'll take a look, yeah that's exactly what's inside the g303 by default. I bet if the cable it came with didn't have that stop it'd probably fall out too(maybe?)

It is molded and most of the time plastic support doesn't match mouse housing so you need to cut it very carefully to fit the mouse (you can see my modified DA cable - it had same support as that Naga cable)

@dzivoder

Yes its what I did to my deathadder with a cutter in order to make it fit in G303 housing

My cable from CeeSA arrived today and I'm pretty stoked. This thing is amazing. Currently "testing" it on my G100s (wires were already color-coded correctly, plus I have spare G100s feet) just to make sure everything is good. I've had plenty of mice, some with cables far superior to others...this is another league. Nothing on the market could compare, literally. Yet another tweak that will undoubtedly spoil me.

Highly recommended to anyone who's on the fence thumb.gif

Where did you get the stock logitech feet? Their part store only seems to ship to US ...
