I fell for Corepad "reinventing" their products like 4 times in total. Every time the edge rounding was still awful.
Tiger arc are even thicker than HG and the exaggerated rounding is just a marketing gimmick playing on the "rounded edges" meme. There is no point for that shape as it will just wear out more quickly and sink in the pad more.
I've had various amounts of old school tigers and hotlines which indeed do not have a rounded edge. That's not the case with with corepad by any means. Totally comparable to HG rounding, though there are people who occasionally get sent old batches, but that's fairly uncommon by now to say the least.
Maybe they are more common with feet for older mouse models?
Rounding on my g pro corepads is very similar to the one on the g400 HG, but yeah they're not as thick so you might notice it less, specially if you deathgrip your mouse into the pad which is just bad practice, specially with a 336x sensor.
Actually with mine you can push the mouse in all you want and you won't feel anything until you start catching on the plastic ridge surrounding the feet.

I don't see what feels better about HG since they are the same material. In my experience they feel very similar, except the g pro (wired) HG which are stupidly hollow on the inside making them slower.
