As much as I'd like to say it's just marketing and there's no difference besides color (I agree though, it's a whole lot of marketing nonsense) there are still several people reporting notable differences. I was just hoping someone here could be more descriptive if they had noticed those differences themselves

Meanwhile the new Master feet are marketed as being "treated to ensure a more controlled glide, along with a smooth feel, compared to the Competition and Performance material". They're just straight up confusing me at this point.
I guess everything is subjective...
But I definitely feel the difference between the "Performance" and "Competitive" versions. Competitive DOES feel faster, smoother, less friction-y.

Haven't tried the new "Master" ones yet. But I'm willing to bet its not just all marketing mumbo jumbo and only colour changes. There definitely will be a difference.

I read that too, assuming that means the edges aren't rounded?

nah the other Hotlines have rounded feet and get a lot smoother after a week or two of use, but I think it's just 2-3 weeks to be safe as not everyone uses super low sens and plays Hard as Heck(TM)

actually skates do, if you go take a look at them theyre not smooth and reflective when theyre new, theyre matte and have visible striae (lines) that get worn away over time in about the time frame they list. Thats when you get the consistent glide out of a set otherwise its changing day to day due to the uneven wear of the striae

The feet came in and I've had a chance to slap them on my G403 and try them out. Initial impressions:
They're beige, not white. Weirdest color I've seen for mouse feet, but I guess it sets them apart. Not even light beige- straight up dark beige.
They're effing horrible. Oh my god, they're horrible at first use. Like gliding on low grit sandpaper. VERY control oriented I guess, but rough rough rough.
I filed them down on the rough side of a Razer Vespula with lots of pressure. After filing them down they calmed down a bit- much smoother now but I still need to work them a few more minutes.
Still very high friction and still a bit rough compared to stock feet and especially to Hyperglides. Much rougher than the competition hotlines feet as well. I by far prefer the competition feet at first use.
I'll give them the 2 weeks of usage they say, but it looks like I'll probably be going back to Hyperglides if they don't smooth out. The feel of pure teflon can't be beat IMO. These are not at all what I expected having used and been a fan of Hotlines previous feet.

I will say the packaging is nothing short of epic though. The box they came in made them seem like they were made out of solid gold or something. Just incredible.

Yup, love the competition feet for sure. Perfect combination of smooth glide and control. I use those on all my mice except the G403 which seems to love the Hyperglides.
