are hyper glides worth it?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
just wondering if they are simply replacement feet for when the originals go bad or you will actually see a nicer glide with them?

Depends on the mouse pad. They may actually make the glide feel too fast (think air hockey)

Or they just feel like a balanced consistent glide. I don't recommend using them on plastic pads. They're alternatives not OEM replacement

If you use normal cloth then I can vouch for them

currently using a black GS-R cloth pad. Before that had the Blue GS-R. I wouldn't say the glide is extremely fast as is

Definitely an improvement over the stock feet for most mice. Although they're admittedly overpriced. But just like w/ a paracord if I'm "maining" a mouse I usually upgrade the feet.

imo yes, in all cases, they're worth it - or rather, any good quality aftermarket feet are worth it. Hyperglide just are my fav. Hotline Games aren't bad either.

I like Slicksurf feet over them. You just have to be lucky, because they cut the feet themselves and one of the guys seem to get parkinson from time to time. So buy at least 5 or 6 feet.

Slicksurf feet are almost identical, but with more, much more durability. My mx518 still has them on, since about 6 or 8 years ago. And that was my main mouse for 4 straight years.

So they are pretty durable, yes.

My main pad is the black GS-R, but without hyperglides i hate it (too sticky).

Durable isn't necessarily ideal for mouse feet. You actually want a very small layer to be lost through friction to offset any resistance felt.

My favorite skates are pure PTFE teflon (white) without added composites for coloring or durability.

Something along the likes of corepad skatez which do come at a premium

This is subjective but there's my two cents anyway thumb.gif
