Mouse cable list?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Which mouse has the worst cable and which one has the best? Can somone compile a list? People keep saying Zowie cables are great. Is it really true?

I love Zowie cables. They are very thin and flexible. Also not braided.

Zowie cables are pretty good. Stripped DA cable is good too. Logitech cables are terrible though, stiff as a morning boner.

Logitech braided cables are bad. G102/G203 cable is great. Nixeus Revel cable is even better than the G102 imo.

I remember having a logitech G5, the one with a weight casette that would let you add 8 small weights that where either 1.7 or 4.5. letting you increase the weight by 36 grams if you wanted to. That one had a especially bad braided cable that was very prone to fraying.

the new logitech cables are pretty bad as they come, im thinking its a production/spec oversight. Because neither the inner cable nor the braided jacket is especially bad on its own, the parts of the cable are golden. The sum of them however is not... Due to the jacket being too SHORT, logitech get your **** together! basically what logitech is doing is giving you a top notch rubber cable inside a equally long top notch Chinese fingertrap! the reason the original cable is percived as stiff is that there is no slack in the braid so when you bend it it bunches up on the inside of the bend, causing the outside of the bend to be pulled tightly around the cable, gripping it firmer than a virgins a**!madsmiley.png the number one secret to a flexable cable is not the softness of the material, its the ability of the different layers of materials(conductor, insulation, sheilding, more insulation), to not bind with eachother! thats why when you see a pro grade highly flexible audio cable with a rubber jacket it does not have soft silicone insulated wires inside, it has... guess what? PTFE insulated wires inside the rubber jacket so that it wont bind, cus guess what? PTFE is slippery as F! A rubber insulated wire is much more flexable than a PTFE insulated wire but a rubber jacketed cable with PTFE insulated wires is much more flexible than a rubber jacketed cable with rubber insulated wires inside! Okay, done ranting for now biggrin.gif

I still have that model with the single side click button.

It is still working and it actually is one of my favourite mice of all time. The cable is of course, stiff as a dead dingo's donger yet it hasn't lost it's braiding as of yet, considering I have only really used that mouse maybe for about a total of 26 hours all up.

Overall a very nice mouse model that happens to use a very decent laser sensor.
