In comparison even my 2 year old Tiger feet grayish white on IE3.0 are smooth, quieter and glide about same.

Can G403 use smaller feet from G102/203/Gpro? I really don't know why they make so many feet on mice gigantic. IE3.0 feet could barely fit from the looks of it and I still have a new pair of those old Tigers. Gpro style feet come with the inner ring though so I might buy those instead of G403 huge feet if it fits but because the edges are not oval like IE3.0 feet they really may not fit :/ G305 again seems to have different feet than Gpro, thinner longer.

I think Corepad, Hotline, Hyperglide, what ever popular brands are kind of overhyped. I got the cheapo Tigers back then and they are more than fine and as it turns out even better than newer Corepads...
The only feet I ever wear down are stock rubbish black feet on newer mice, I could never wear down old gray IE3.0 feet what ever plastic those are from.

Too bad all feet makers take forever to release feet for a specific mouse even though it takes 1 day to make a metal punch for it.

I want feet that are from white PTFE or better effortless glide with as little static friction as possible, rounded edges but flat face otherwise. Corepads aren't that.

IE 3.0 feet fit on the g403 but you need to cut the bottom feet thinner. Cut and sand the edge with grits up to ~1000 if you have more better, start for 400/600

I prefer to put new skates on top of the old ones. Prefer the mouse performance with the taller skate and I have found that when you remove the factory skates, it is hard to get replacement skate to stick perfectly as well as the old skate within the plastic bezel. My EC2 has had Tiger game skates on it for 3 years now stacked over the original skates, they stick really solid and no do not come off.

Have used in the past a special glue that adheres to everything plastic, hence if feet work their way off the mouse shell the glue makes sure they stay there - permanently.

Remembered it was a Selley's product glue, forgot the exact name of it....

2components glue is always a good choice
I prefer Pattex ( Henkel ) , ok a bit of "use german products" makes a role in this decision
