Corepad's glue is also hard to take off the bottom of the mouse. It leaves a very sticky residue on wherever you place it. So, if you take them off, you will probably ruin the mousefeet.

Hyperglides are much better in that department. You can even place them on top of some sticky tape and leave them there for later use, if you want to.

1. They are not thicker.
2. The corepad have very rounded edges in their latest feet, not the old sharp they had way before.

"The last corepad I bought made my g9x" so you bought mousefeet made years ago, you know manufacturing change during those years.
Hyperglide as well, their old feet are not the same as the ones made for newer mice.

You are correct regarding the glue however, re using them is not really an option, well you can but you need to glue them back on.
Not really a problem imo, rather not re use feet anyway, and I open my mouse 1 time to put in a paracord.

I might try corepads skatez again. They were really really bad when I tried them back when I needed skates for my EC1 and my regrettable g500. They were definitely cut badly, the glide was terrible, they were always warped so that they were curling the card plank they arrived on, and the adhesive was a joke but boy did it make a mess when you inevitably remove the skates.

Hyperglides did indeed have some uneven edges around the same time for their larger skates. That's why everyone was into Hotlines and Tigers and Hyperglides only for the smaller Microsoft/Logitech skates which had pretty nicely rounded edges.

Puretrak had started to produce a pure teflon premium skate line around this time, and they take the cake for the worst skates ever made. Bricks. "Enthusiasts" had long posts on here about how great the skates were, how you were using them wrong, and how to properly file or dremel the edges before applying. Someone dig those up again, it's priceless...

I'm not too sure if this is a marketing campagn for Corepads or not.
Well, at least they ship REALLY really fast. I've ordered yesterday, today they arrived (Munich).

Anyway, I feel like they glide less smooth than the Hyperglides, even if the Corepads include the middle one. Not sure if I like the glide of the Corepads yet; but I wanted to state my first impression.

Too be more accurate, Hyperglides make the mouse fly above the mousepad (in my case the QcK) - using the Corepads I feel a resistance when dragging over the pad. It also makes a little "rub" noise while dragging.

I use hyperglides on my G Pro and just kept the old center ring on. No problems.

I prefer the Core Pads G Pro skates vs the Hyperglides.
Like the fact the mouse isn't as far off the mouse pad, and the center ring is a plus.

So I just put on hyperglides yesterday on my G pro.

Didnt even think of the middle feet. I just kept the old one on and swapped the other 4.

How can i really check if this causes a tracking issue?

But overall after reading, the new corepad feets are 0,6 and include a middle and should be better overall, right?

Can anyone compare the glide from the corepad and the hyperglide, cause why I always played with hyperglide is because its the best glide.

Having a SS heavy.

After a few days of gaming with the CorePads I can't really find a difference. It might be that the CorePads offer slightly more grip and flicks are more accurate. The "resistance" I felt got less, but is still slightly there. I wonder if it wears away at some point.

yeah running it on a cloth pad for a while will make it feel smoother. Hyperglides are the same when new.

you also tried both?

corepad is better or cause the 0.6 and the mid feet?

I haven't tried the ones for G Pro, only G403, and a bunch of others, but they need to be worn in a bit before getting to their optimal smoothness (IMO/IME).

I actually think the slightly thicker Hyperglides are better. and I've never had any scraping issues from the center foot.
