New Hotline Games "Master" Feet

A few weeks / months ago Hotline Games came out with their new "Master" feet (alongside their preexisting "Performance" and "Competition" feet). I currently use a G403 as my main, while I anxiously await the Ninox Astrum. Until then though, I'm looking to optimize my G403 as best as possible. I prefer a very slow glide and therefore use a G-SR with stock feet on most mice. However, I do find the G403's stock feet to be rather quick. I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with Hotline's Master feet, and if not, might anyone be able to recommend slower third party feet? Thanks in advance for any help!

Link to Hotline's Master feet (from what I can tell, they might offer more control than the Performance / Competition feet):

nice - as much as I like Hyperglides, Hotline have a lot wider range of compatibility, and have never actually disappointed me (nor have Hyperglide of course, but can't get them for every mouse).
tempted to try, but I just got a new set of feet for my mouse.

honestly doubt it would be slower than the Competition hotlines though, I think they might be faster actually - which is what I prefer

I can let you know when mine get in. Ordered them a week or so ago. Currently use a G403 on a Zowie G-SR with Hyperglides (the IME 3.0 ones). Supposed to be here Saturday. I preferred the Hyperglides to the Hotlines for this mouse because I felt they were a bit smoother in the glide even though I liked the control of the Hotlines Competition feet.

Aren't the competition feet even faster than their performance feet? o.o

That's awesome - thank you! Do you happen to remember if the Hotlines were any slower than the stock G403 feet?

The Competition feet are actually slower than the Performance ones, but last longer. These new "Master" feet, I'm assuming, will be the fastest. Looks closer to pure, un-dyed PTFE to me.

Oh, and iirc, the stock G403 feet were faster than the Competition feet, about the same as the Performance ones, though. Logitech's stock feet are faster than most, actually, because the edges are more rounded. Whether the edges on mouse feet are straight or beveled has more of an affect on the glide speed of them than the material they're made out of does, I've found.

Everything I own or have used extensively in an alphabetical list. Ask me anything! ^-^

Interesting. Thank you for clarifying. It gets confusing because the Performance feet are marketed as "the original PTFE glide that gamers are used to" and the Competition feet are marketed as "F4-Silver treated PTFE for a faster, smoother, and more durable glide"... so I had assumed Competition would be quicker? 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.

That's the point. Marketing mumbo jumbo "proprietary material". Pretty sure the only thing what's different from your usual hotline set is colour. I would make a snarky remark why it's called master but that joke is off-colour.

Imagine if they did just change the color, though. .-.

Even if it's just a color change, as long as it's the same price I would prefer these. Those transparent feet make me uneasy.

CeeSA paracorded Kone Pure Owl Eye with custom skates on a 16 x 20 glass cutting board: that's my daily driver, long live the king.

You can aim well with any mouse, it just takes practice. This theory has been tested and verified. So when shopping, just look for the mouse with all the whistles you want and with minimal amount of deal breakers.
