Well as I asked before about how they round the feet, it's same same crappy way Corepad does it, except corepad ones have the center falldown giving them the 2 peaks and center will stay glued on. Again these look as if they are punched out on some soft material, meaning yes the edges are curved but the whole pad is warped/curved, the edges aren't crushed down by force much they are bent down. Seems like they don't use a metal bed with a high pressure press to cut these, at least to me, as that should result in the edges getting cut and crushed without pads bending like this.

Feet have nothing to do with mouse weight. Actually the more force from gravity there is the more important contact surface/feet are. If you want to nitpick.

I just put both into a packet, do I gotta take a caliper out and measure them? Guess I do... They seemed same thickness to my eyes.

Tigers come separated with a light brown backing/glue on them and a thin clear foil.
Corepads come stuck together on a "3M" paper.

Both are around 0.9mm with their curve and backing.
Without curve around 0.8mm with backing.
Corepad pure glide material thickness, no backing, no glue, no curve, 0.525mm.

As almost all feet they are the same thickness and that's what you want anyway as altering height alters sensor distance from pad.

I would say the Tiger's glide a little better but I have to wait before installing them on my mouse. It's too bad they didn't round the edges proper, guess it costs too much to use a proper press/cut machine.

It literally does not matter how the edges are rounded, you will break them in within days, nullifying any sort of preexisting shape or rounding for the most part.
its just pointless nitpicking as seems to be common decency around here.

Does break in happen faster on softer pads or something? My first set of aftermarket mouse feet was the Hotline Competition feet on my Rival 600 and I used that for a while on my ASUS Scabbard pad and the edges are still pretty square and they still sound scratchy. The Tiger feet on my G403 are much quieter and while I didn't mind the Hotlines, I prefer the feel and quietness of the tigers over them.

its not that soft pads break in mouse feet faster, more that they're more forgiving of scratchy feet and do not make as much noise or as easily

Cloth pads don't really wear out mouse feet unless you have the Logitech stock supersoft black feet, those I did manage to wear a bit. Where as over many many years the "plastic" IE3.0 feet didn't wear a bit really, neither did grayish older Tigers on IE3.0.

If you have a hard pad such as glass or table (RIP table), etc. you're gonna wear the feet down. The edges? Nah, not really, you will strip the cutting edge a bit but grinding them down flat will keep the edge sharp anyway.

You can sand edges of feet round with sandpaper, I used 2000 grit but it takes a while. I did it on Corepad round punch outs. Noise of friction for mouse feet is mostly from edges. If it sounds scratchy, then edges aren't rounded.

Is there a trick to remove the thin plastic film on the adhesive side of the feet?

The set I used for my GPW, the plastic film on the adhesive side was a pain to get off.

Normal rubbing the edges gently with you finger tip or nail ended up bringing up the adhesive off the ptfe material and the plastic film would not separate easily unlike other mouse feet.

Just used by ever reliable Finger Nail, on my Thumb. That baby can strip paint of metal when used viciously, but can be gentle and kind on this plastic film.

Wasn't hard to remove at all but my thumb is huge compared to the thin tiny pieces, of the G Pro W mouse feet.
