That could also be very well related to the right side of the axis, not the one in the encoder but the one in the U groove.

Is there a standard size for encoders? I'm seeing 9, 10 and 11mm. How do I know the size of the one I want to swap out? The one I'm swapping is a TTC green, I think.

You need to measure the height shown here in the red:

Also 11mm seems to be the most common. But still you need to check.

Brilliant! Thanks

After 4 months in transit(lol) my encoders arrived.










Overview:
TTC:
TTC have very similar designs, though the wheel is bigger than on the Alps and Huano encoders. They are really easy to get stuck in between notches and wear quite quickly inside. But the notches last a long time. Can't recommend these as they are the worse of the bunch.
Huano(TF):
They tried copying Alps. Works well, but notches wear fast (soft plastic wheel). Can get stuck in between notches.
Alps:
Undisputed king. Beefy brushes, harder plastic on the wheel than it's competitors. Provides very distinct steps but it's the loudest one of the bunch. Now I see why these are the most favorite encoders.




This is how it was supposed to be Mionix:

Soooooooo which is the best one????
post #97 of 104
how about you read his post. or just scan it. (it's Alps.)

where did you order these @Soo8 ?
post #98 of 104
So the question then is, could I in theory use a different mouse wheel, but still keep the same feedback the Encoder provides?

Aliexpress. From this Chinese seller

If using a specific encoder across a few different mice then yes. But if the mouse wheel assembly (holder) is too loose it will hinder the experience somewhat. I put Alps EC10Es in a Mionix Castor, Hori Edge and a DA 2013 and the feedback is almost the same across all of them.

if the wheel fits the shell and is compatible with the encoder, i don't see why not.

@Soo8 thanks man. i guess i'll start opening up mice and measuring the height of their encoders (sigh).
i should probably check aliexpress more often for parts like this, i'm digging those prices!
