the plug on the mouse end of the cable, the white housing has a catch for each crimp where you can see metal through the side of the connector. you can pry that back with a razor blade and take the crimps out, then put them back in in a different order. Though be careful, because it can be easy to tear the wire off of the crimp.

Bought it out of curiosity. For the record, I never used the MX518 back in the day and therefor it took me 2 hours to get used to the ledge on the right (1-3-1 just doesn't feel right to me), but now it doesn't bother me anymore. But as soon I went ingame, I noticed the insane performance. I'm not sure if it's the hero sensor, shape or click latency, but this mouse owns in CS:GO. Making small adjustments when aiming was never easier before. I compared the mx518 and g403(non-hero) multiple times and it felt like the g403 had way higher physical click latency for some reason (hard buttons, idk). The mx518 also gives me more control without the dumb g403 hump and feels rather light for the proclaimed weight. Sure, the mouse wheel, cable and silver material top could be better, but that's a trade off I gladly make. I can only recommend this mouse for competitive FPS accuracy freaks.

nice to hear someone else discovering this mouse.
I'll post up some more pictures of my newly paracorded and slightly more weight reduced version tomorrow.

Ended up ditching my MX518 legendary, to many issues, some small and can be fixed, others not that easy. Buttons to stiff, DPI levels are off compared to other mice, sensor fealing weird, hyperglides dont fit in height etc etc. As i said some of them are pretty easy to fix. After having owned all mice with this shape for god knows how long, mx500-510-518 G400-400S and now the MX518L. Going to step back to the G400s for now and try out glorious model o and maybe the latest zowie EC batch again.



Its just going to be my opinion, but i dont think logitech did that good of a job on the legendary, main reason being the buttons are way to stiff even after being worn in, the D2FC-7N 20m used in this mouse isnt what they used to be.
