Best finish on a mouse?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So I hear a lot of talk about soft touch rubber finish, the grainy finish on the FK, Glossy finish you see on the sides of old Deathadders.

I just wanna know what is the best all around finish for mice, and where could you possibly get the resources to apply it?

Dry hands? Glossy is great
Sweaty hands? Smooth coating is nice
Inconsistent hands? Grainy coating is nice.

Just from my experience.

Dry hands = glossy...The EC1-Evo White and rival White stuck to my hand like glue which is great !
Sweaty hands = rubberized...I have dry hands and cannot lift the deathadder black edition or the EC2-A

My most favouriite finish was Logitech g5, g3 g500 g700 side finish that felt a bit like sandpaper.

Felt good with dry cold hands. Felt good with moist hands as well

Same here man.

I have dry hands and a preference for non-rubberized everything. I absolutely love the EC-A mice (and even the DA), but the coating/grips are horrible for me. I was actually thinking about trying this mod some guy on reddit did. At this point I'm content with the coating of the FM TP but honestly it looks like it would benefit any mouse I applied it to. Plus it looks kinda cool imo.

As others have stated, glossy works well for dry hands as far as grip, I just don't like how it feels.
