They must have done some pretty nutty testing considering 3$ dell mice don't have that issue after years of use. Maybe they should have looked at an alternative rubber cable instead.

Or you know; they didn't test anything. I wonder how people would react if Jude had said the same thing they did.

What do these "tests" consist of? How do you shrink down years of abuse into weeks or months?

"Imma rub these two cables on 60 grit sandpaper"

"Good idea, m8"

"Oh, look! The cable that didn't have an extra layer to wear through wore through quicker. We must use these because they're obviously more durable"

"I agree, m8"

If there were actually more quality issues with non-braided cables in the real world, you can be sure Zowie would have switched even if it'd only save them a dollar per year and the new cables performed like trash.

I used an fk1 for more than a year (the original one with all the issues) and not once did the cable give a single issue, in fact I didn't really notice it in the bungee compared to braided.. I think braided is associated in the 'marketing' world as 'quality' but for me personally I think it's just worse. I do know logitech had bad rubber cables on their old g400 series.. or something was bad with the wire idk

I have literally never seen a mouse cable fail because the outside coating came off regardless of the material used. This includes mice that are a decade old.

Also anyone who plays low sens knows that cable bungees can only do so much. You need enough slack when playing low sens that you are going to have cable drag no matter what.

He´s honest saying it costs too much to make a new mold in comparison to what might get gained. I like this. I like this a lot. I will be getting one of these when they release with 3360.

a rubber cable with good strain relief can be way durable than most braided cables...

and if you're treating a rubber/pvc cable badly enough to cause it to be damaged, i don't see how having braiding helps. unless it's kevlar braiding (sennheiser hd800 biggrin.gif)

I read this as: pick up a Nixeus Revel if you want a rubber cable.



Thanks...Will certainly do so.

How would a nylon braid make a cheap cable last significantly longer? The nylon braid can fail within a week if your mouse pad pulls on it (my G303's cable was already coming apart after a few days).

I assume nylon fibers are cheaper/easier to make than a thicker more resilient cable. If a factory defaults to making a 2.5mm cable and you want a 3mm cable, you will likely be forced to pay more; same goes for asking for a different jacket material, shielding, etc.

The braid will hide any splits in the cheap cable and it will add style for those consumers that are into PC fashion. It's an easy choice...
