Increasing LOD on a mouse?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
There's a trick where you put tape over a mouse's sensor to decrease LOD. I'm wondering, can something similar be done to increase it instead? I'm using a G100s and the LOD is excessively low; with the way I hold the mouse, it's essentially unusable on cloth pads because it stops tracking often. This is especially true if the mat doesn't lay down flatly.

Has anyone tried doing this before?

The lod on G100s is not low... Maybe its your pad...

The logitech G240 pad increase the lod a bit...

I've tried it on several mousepads, such as the Razer Goliathus Control, Steelseries QCK, Allsop Raindrop, and Zowie GTF-X. The only one that had an acceptable LOD is the Allsop, along with my current hard pad, the ACT LABS Speed by Surface.

I think it's because of the way I hold the mouse. I sort of tilt it to the side a bit, especially when doing fast swipes, and this causes it to lose tracking sometimes. If I lay it down flat and push on it a bit, it tracks well on any pad, but I always revert to holding it the way I'm used to unconsciously when actually playing.

The Logitech G240 appears to be a "control" pad, which is not something I prefer. I favor pads that are as slippery as possible.

Basically the slippier the pad - the lower the lod on it will be, most of the time. Also there is a very similar mouse to G100s, but it uses 3090 sensor instead, which is known for having very high LOD.

Not sure if it's still possible to buy it though.

Hmm, that mouse is also 90 grams which would probably be too heavy for me, especially considering I have the metal weight removed from the G100s.

Is there any way to somehow shift the lens to increase the LOD, maybe?

The Zalman has a weight as well.

MP provides a great overview and direct comparison to the G100s here.

Hmm, that is pretty good... Though I'd still rather not buy another mouse. It is tempting when it's so cheap, however...

Ducky Secret and Ducky Secret M have insane high LODs...
