Just applied the tiger gaming feet.
These are great, much better than the hyperglides I had (which admittably were old and designed for the g400, yet they should still be thick enough, but werent).
These have the needed thickness and the rounded edges are a nice touch.

Highly recommended!

Been awhile since I posted, but considering what I and several other people have experienced with this scroll wheel including owners of previous generations of this shape it's pretty safe to say that at minimum a fair number of these has ****ty scroll wheels. You might've been lucky and got one that works just like the older ones I and several others weren't.

I fixed mine by taking the one from my G400 and putting it in my G MX518, and I'm talking just the wheel the rest of the assembly metal clip, spring and all came with the G MX518.

Oh and I got my G MX518 down to about 90g-91g



Picture I took just before reassemblying with all the components and screws I use. (screws are under the top part of the shell)

I don't care for the feel of the click, but it doesn't feel broken by any means...just...underwhelming. What behavior does a broken/crappy one exhibit?

You would need to rearrange the connector.

Yeah it still brings back everything I remember about my original MX518, so I have no plans on hacking it up. I think it is going to be my work mouse very soon, though.

Is that the thing that is sticking out of the mouse or the pins?
