Why is it only Zowie that gives extra pairs of mousefeet?

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
For the price most mice are right now, I'm surprised it's only Zowie who gives extra pairs of reserve mousefeet. I'd understand if it was budget mice, but it's also the higher end of things. Razer, Logitech, SteelSeries, neither of them gives any sort of extra mousefeet. They are happy about giving out some random stickers people never use.

Is there not enough demand for this?

Because they feel bad that their stock feet are so terrible. So they give you an extra pair. They're actually so poor in quality the manufacturer of the feet actually has to pay them just for them to use the feet

But in all seriousness the feet are awful, you can warp them if they touch water or press on them too hard with your finger. They also wear down very fast

imo they are great compared to many other mice out there.

My 13€ Sharkoon Shark Force had extra mousefeet included. They are alright

I have literally never seen mouse feet be worn down unusably. How does one even do that, let alone on cloth? My OMB's tiny feet are roughly 10 years old now and as useful as ever.

Not all mousefeet are great, some are easy to get worn, like my deathadder. Plus it mostly depends on how fast and often you move the mouse around in quick speeds, e.g. low sensitivity/8 hours gaming a day, they can get destroyed pretty easily if they are not thick and durable.

Probably to give you an option to use the extra ones on the top of the stock ones. rolleyes.gif You should try it.
Don't forget to change the LOD to the highest level.
