Hyperglide mouseskates for Razer DeathAdders - Questions

post #1 of 10

Hyperglide mouseskates for Razer DeathAdder (3G / 3.5G / 2013 / 4G / Chroma)

» Replacement mouse feet that increases your control and accuracy by providing the smoothest and most consistent glide
» Helps reduce grip tension which improves accuracy and decreases wrist strain for longer and more enjoyable gaming sessions
» Exclusive G-Curve Technology produces rounded edges for a scratch-free glide right out-of-the-box. No break-in period required
» Specially calibrated 0.65 mm thickness: Provides the ideal feet height that eliminates "bottom-scraping" & provides longer life-span
» Made with virgin-grade 100% pure Teflon® for the lowest friction and eco-friendly, no-residue adhesive. Contains 2 sets.



Price: $12.99 / 2 Sets


How do these [Hyperglide mouseskates] compare to the OEM mouseskates that the DeathAdder (2013/Chroma)/ Razer Gaming Mice come with? ($9.99 / 2 Sets + $14.99 shipping & handling wave2.gif)

How do these [Hyperglide mouseskates] compare to Tiger Gaming Deathadder (2013/Chroma) mouse skates, which are said to be very good and made in the same factory as Razer? ($4.99 / 2 Sets)

They're listed as being 0.65mm thick, which I believe is the same specs as OEM Razer mouseskates, but how could it eliminate "bottom-scraping", which is pretty common with OEM mouseskates?

Do these have a shorter or longer lifespan compared to OEM mouseskates / other mouseskate replacements?

I have used hyperglides for a long time on my DA chroma. I stacked the feet on top of the original ones and for the entire 14-15 months I used it, it was perfect.

For me the problem with the deathadder was the stock mouse skates were too thin and would scrape my mouse pad. The hyperglides elevated the mouse and the glide became buttery smooth. I use only cloth mousepads and the hyperglide still glide like day 1 even after 15 months of usage. They were def worth the asking price of 12.99.

I would stay away from tiger gaming feet as I have heard they are extremely bad quality.

I have since moved on to logitech G303 but the deathadder chroma with hyperglide served me extremely well for a long time.

Didn't that affect your Lift off Distance, or did you use the Surface Calibration function? Personally, I wouldn't stack the 0.65mm mousefeet on-top of the stock mousefeet, maybe the 0.28mm thick mousefeet that are generally used for tournaments.

I do agree, the stock Razer mousefeet are a bit thin, but I've had a few DA Chroma's lately where there was little plastic pieces in the crevasses that were impossible to remove without using excessive force and possibly damaging the mouse, and they stuck out enough to scrape the pad pretty badly, and without further inspection I would have just blamed the mousefeet.

So the Hyperglides have zero break-in period, correct?

Need help: Didn't realize that the adhesive on these Hyperglide's is like Gorilla Glue, and 1 or 2 of the mousefeet are not sitting perfectly flat, and I really don't want to rip these off since I only got 2 Sets total. Anyone have any tips on how to nudge the mousefeet into place without damaging them? thumb.gif

You're best off just using a flat, sharp object and removing them completely and putting them back on the right way next time. Attempting to "nudge" or slide them into place cold potentially dis-align the bond to the skates themselves.

You mean remove them and use my second/last set? Not sure if I read that correctly, since I don't see how I could remove them and re-use them without ruining them.

If you take your time and pry around the edges at a "low" angle you can take off most mouse feet w/o damaging/bending them. Hyperglides are somewhat thick, so "ruining" the skate itself should be avoidable. At that point it's just a matter of how sticky the adhesive still is. Obviously these things aren't meant to be put on and taken off repeatedly.

I've noticed on hyperglides in particular the adhesive strip sometimes has a tendency to "curl" into itself upon removal. But if all else fails you'd just have to use the 2nd set.

Yeah, I'm going to use second set. The issue is the adhesive literally grips immediately so putting one corner in, than the other, doesn't really work cause I can't even twist it. So I could technically remove the mousefeet from my DA Chroma I've had for ~2 weeks and slap them on my DA 2013 without ruining them?

I'd suppose it's possible.
