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.
Just to confirm, you took off the plastic film on the feet first before using them, right?

Yup. Not my first round with these with hotlines. Before I give my final verdict I’m going to use them for a couple weeks to give them a chance. Who knows, I may end up loving them after they break in.

The Master skates have been around for quite a while, just not for every mouse. They cost only several dollars more than the performance and competition skates, and come in a much nicer wooden box packaging. A bit unnecessary imo.

As far as the skates perform, they feel much slower than the competition skates which I find rather fast depending on the mouse pad you use. Those require some break in time. Not sure about the Master skates as im still using them. Im hoping they'll release them for more SteelSeries mice too.

Hmm, thank you very much for the feedback. I love the idea of "very control oriented" but not at the cost of being extremely rough. I'm looking for a slow but smooth glide. Definitely keep us posted on how they wear over the first couple of weeks, and thanks again.

How long have you been using the Master feet for? Would you say they've become less rough over time? I agree that the Competition feet, or any PTFE feet for that matter, are a bit too fast (for my own preference, that is). I love the idea of the slower Master feet, but only if they wear down to being smooth eventually.

Post 1 week impression:

So after using them a bit and filing them down a bit more on the Vespula, I have to say the feet are pretty nice. On my Zowie G-SR-SE they glide pretty smooth and have a lot of control. If you're looking for something to give you that extra bit of control then these feet are the ones you're looking for. Especially if you don't smooth them out first. After getting adjusted my shots seem to line up just a bit quicker in Overwatch. Pretty big difference from my initial impressions! I'm going to give them a couple more weeks of use and give my final verdict on them, but so far I've come around and have to say I'm kinda liking them.

Only used it for a few days on the G403 before moving back to my SteelSeries mice tbh, cos I think they suit me better. But the feet did not seem to change in feel and glide during those few days. They are definitely more durable than the competition skates which start off smooth then reach a sweet spot once broken in. In any case, the master feet are definitely "rougher" but offer more control.

So from what I can gather so far. Competition = speed and Master = control.

The mouse pad you use these skates on can also affect your initial impression on them so keep them in mind.

Has anyone been able to find a single link with all there Master mouse feet? I know you can scroll down pages on Ebay to find different mouse-specific sets. Looking for a circle/oval shaped set (like the IME's feet) that I can fit in most mice.

Nvm. Remembered their website.

https://hotlinegames.world.tmall.com...7fa662cdD8XnTV

Just gotta Google Translate their page or whatever. Tiny, round Master feet. Yay!

These are great feet. In fact if you're looking for decent control I'd go for these over a gsr. Once worn in they offer great control but they're not heavy on static friction making small adjustments easy. Really good product.
