mine don't really look like there's a distinct ridge

I don't use a super squishy pad, but there's more to press down into compared to a qck+ or something completely flat. I haven't felt like it's noticeably easier to press down

also as expected after 1 day of use they've come down in slipperiness a lot and feel more standard. still a super smooth feeling when doing a fast swipe and stopping. they're smooth enough to not really provide a fantastic "break" if anyone needs that, but it's more consistent feeling for stopping movement in different directions atm. It could just be because they're new, but my guess is they'll be a little more like hyperglides and not get scratched or peel on the edges as easily :^)

I doubt feet like this won't last for a decent stretch of time, no idea if they'll last for a REALLY long time. IMO people should be changing their feet every like 3-4 months anyway (depending on the feet and usage), but I use lower sens than most so mileage varies I guess

Damn, I've still got functioning HyperGlides on my IE 3.0 from 2011.

Don't know why you youngster's all wear out your mouse feet in a couple of months time, what gives?

Just bought 4 sets of feet for various mouse models off Takasta's webstore. I'll see how truly durable they are and if they will last till 2027 .

I never wore out any feet even on mice I used for 10+ years. Depends what pad you use, on cloth? They smoothen out and that's it.
On hard pads, well what do you expect, it will eat the mouse feet.

Too bad Tiger launched these so late, liked their previous feet on my IE3.0 although their thickness selection was weird at the time and they used a foam to make the feet higher instead of using thicker material.
The rounded edges definitely matter, lose that and most feet scratch until they wear in.

Most feet and pads glide well the first month, give it a year and then make comparisons really. PTFE do help over standard stock who knows what crappy material feet in the long run.

Since you use an IE 3.0, I'm assuming you play on an obscenely high sensitivity. maybe something like 20-25cm/360? I play on ~70cm/360 and for zooming in some games closer to like 135-140cm/360 or sometimes even lower depending on a few things.

If we assume it's just hipfire, it wouldn't be unreasonable to say I move my mouse around probably at least 3 times as much as you do assuming we play for equal amounts of time. How many hours do you play a day on average over large spans of time? Moving a mouse around for like 12-13+ hours a day on 70cm+/360 tends to wear feet out pretty quickly. I was also basing that claim on how often I would change my stock feet on my g303. For something like hyperglides I would say maybe once every 6 months or so (big maybe, idk). depends a lot on the roughness of the pad being used

i wouldent call 20-25cm/360 "obscenely high", its on the higher side of medium sens sure.

i -would- call 70cm/360 obscenely low though, to an absurd point

for reference i use about 45cm/360 with my ime 3.0, which id call usual low sens

buuuut i guess were all different.

Why would an IE3.0 imply high sensitivity anyway?

I am using 41cm/360 in csgo and my hyperglides usually only last me 2-3 months on a clothpad (talent).

I actually haven't used a talent. Does it eat feet faster than other cloth pads?

It has 450 CPI, so either you glide on the mouse like mad man or on the other hand set your ingame sens high and wrist play instead. You don't need to use high in game sensitivity.
Some games it doesn't even matter what you have past 400 CPI really but for 3D games it's better to have 800+ so the ingame angle is small and you get finer control especially at long distances.
