different mouse feet

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Anybody tried out different brands of mouse feet? I've heard of Puretrak, Hyperglides and Corepad. The problem is they all advertise "reduced friction" like it's a good thing. I want something that gives more friction and control than the stock teflon feet.

Is there any brand worth trying or are they all the same thing?

Get some generic plastic feet if you want more friction. :S

If you want friction don't use teflon feet

otherwise hyperglides are the best teflon feet out there

From what I've been hearing, Puretrak would give you plenty of friction since they aren't actually 100% teflon. Worried me a little bit, but tbh all I want is for something to get my DA off teh mousepad.

I been using qpad glidz mouse feet on my DA for well over a year now. I change them every 6-8 months pending on the use. I do notice the difference with them on and I think is worth the cash spent on it. On my mx518 I did use teflon tape with it but it didnt last as long as qpad glidz.

if you are looking for more friction from those 3, puretrak uses a teflon blend so it isn't as smooth.

I've tried Puretrak feet and hardly noticed a difference from the stock feet.

Does anybody actually make regular plastic replacement feet?

No.


What pad are you using?

I remember wanting this when I first got my Xai. It performed better on a hard pad but the hard pad caused the Xai to slip around like it was on ice. When I had my Kinzu I remembered that its plastic feet were perfect on a hard pad for allowing more friction which resulted in more control. Teflon glides on my Talent cloth pad felt close to the same glide as plastic glides on my 4HD.

Sadly, nobody sells plastic feet.
