rival cable drag

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
so im new to the forum so i hope i post this in the right section
im long time rival user now but i always had this one issue with the cable
it drags over the table/ mousepad like crazy and it feels so weird while playing
so i finally want to fix it
im using the zowie mouse bungee but this didnt fix it
hope anyone can help me with the problem

and my second question is: which mouse except for the rival/ec1/deathadder is perfect for big hands ( claw/fingertip grip / a mix of both kinda )
my hand is 20cm from middlefinger to wrist
i bought the dreammachines dm1 pro lately ( same size as the sensei) i like it but its a little bit too small so i thought about the fk1 + ?
sorry for my bad english
regards

The problem is the stress reliever, it makes contact with the mousepad and creates this heavier drag. Basically you can either deal with it, go through the process of changing the cable, or go for another mouse

It's very annoying though.. as for big hands you could try the fk1+ (I haven't) but I'm not a fan of zowie clicks.

The problem is the cable material, the type of rubber and texture, I solved it by opening the mouse and changing the cable from another mice.

Many professionals loved it and some still use it, give it a try if you can find one. I believe it's palm suited but I haven't used a g400 since... 2010ish

yes, like c0dy said.

 

I also use thinner inner cables, because the original inner cables are stiff and not very flexible.

Rival 300 is special, because of the JST 1.5 connector (white internal plug). This one is smaller and make it very hard to crimp the cables with the right connectors.

I have a ceesa cable on my FM ergo and it was worth the upgrade.
