Nice thread. Maybe some more info about size differences and compatibility. Standard plugs should all be compatible, right? Assuming you match their color. The g9x has the smallest plug i've seen I'm not sure if any other mice use it(besides the g9?) Second smallest I have come across the g5/g500 cable and they can be interchanged.
