So yeah, the original cable is terrible. But even if you lift the bad cable, the original feet seem to be worse than what I managed from some Corepad MS1.1 and a nailclipper. So in case you have MS1.1 feet lying aroung I can recommend to use one of the originals as a reference. Put one of the originals on top of the 1.1 and then just shorten the 1.1 to the right length. Don't worry about the sharp edges. I managed to make mine fit quite well within the grooves on the bottom of the mouse, and the glide is much better than the original feet - tested on a Zowie G-SR.
The feet of the Pro seem to be weird in that on some pads (QCK Heavy, Minox Alioth) they work well, but on others they are really bad (G-SR). Which comes down to a flaw in the feet for me as none other mouse I've had had this problem. For instance, all Zowie mice run smoothly over all pads I own compared to the Pro.
I say this, because Logitech will be the first to offer replacement feet I guess. But seeing as they don't work well with the G-SR (and probably some other pads), I would only consider waiting for them before you paracord this beauty in the case that you are using a pad that is known to be working with the original feet. Otherwise cutting up some hyperglides or whatever will be better, even if the result won't look good
Oh and in terms of M1&M2 inconsistencies: My first one, the one I modded already, has a louder M2, but to me both clicks feel the same. When I am ingame and can't hear the sound difference they feel the same. The second unit I have here, seems to be flawless in this regard (note: I do not consider sound differences to be a real flaw!). M1/M2 are absolutely equal.
Second one came from amazon, first from Logitech directly in case you are wondering.
