Hyperglides round feet for G Pro positioning.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all,
I'm curious how you've positioned your mouse feet on the G Pro?
I seem to recall people using small, round ones but i can't for the life of me find the thread. I make my own mouse feet and recently got a hole puncher in different sizes, so i'm eager to try them out.
The first time i made the round ones i luckily managed to position them perfectly but this time not so much... had to use a whole lot of mouse feet just to combat that scratchy feeling. I should be fine just using two upper and two lower, right?
Anyways, interested in seeing some pictures how you've done it, or if you can, point me to the direction where there's better info/pictures.
I should mention that i also am trying to keep the screws visible so i don't have to remove the feet every time. I've had some stability issues and right now kind of a scratchy feel to it.


Thanks!

Why not just get the feet specifically for the G Pro? ;P

the scratchy feel is not likely to completely disappear if you use punched feet on a cloth surface.

why hyperglides for example work well and feel smooth isn't just because of the material, but also because of the machining. they're rounded and polished very well.

rounding and polishing your own DYI feet is no joke unless you have some cool tools to do it with. imo you'd be better off buying a stack of hyperglides and working your job an extra hour, if you catch my drift.

how many and how big (feet) is subjective, some like a few tiny ones while others prefer 2 bigger ones. just try out a few different things and keep tweaking until you think it feels right.

personally i only use DYI on glass or aluminium, for plastic or cloth it's hyperglides.

Those cost about the same as the sheet of HDPE i got like 3 years ago. Still nowhere near needing to buy another one yet. Will probably last ~2-3 years more.
It's ridiculously cheap making your own.

I know. I'm using a aluminium pad. It's the positioning that's fubared. It was working beautifully with the earlier feet. I had to remove them because one fell off so i decided to replace everything.
Well rather, i believe the issue is because of the ridges in the plastic where the original mouse feet should fit. I might sand paper it down but i did so on my g303, and while the performance never seemed to take any hit, it wasn't very straight. Although i might've overdone it and used sand paper that was too coarse.

Yea i know, heh. Rounding and polishing could easily take a whole day. I started using the hole punching method instead, and yea, they're scratchy on cloth. Not going back to cloth ever again (now that glass mats are making a resurgance). Besides, i like DIY'ing so it's no trouble for me. I find making mouse feet rather soothing tbh ;p
Anyways... Y'all got any pictures? Or is there a better thread for looking at how people have positioned their feet?
