Logitech G-MX518 aftermarket hyperglide mouse skates?

hey there,

I was wondering if there are any hyperglides available for g-mx518 that I'm waiting for to come in the mail. I use hyperglides on my G Pro Hero and used them on my ec2-a and original g pro with a glorious pad or g-sr SE pad. if anyone knows where I could get them that would be awesome. thanks! preferably not the actual hyperglides site lol

What's wrong with the HG store, it's more often than not the "cheapest" solution.. lol?
Anyway, everybody is using corepads or tiger arc nowadays.

I sincerely got sick of HG for the following reasons:
-they take too much time to update their already limited selection
-they cost more than same quality competition
-the g pro ones are slow, they tried to get a depressed center with the edges raised due to the inner ring, but it just doesn't work like that.
-no sensor foot for 336x mice. Let us decide if to use it or not depending on pad and "grip weight".
-MOST IMPORTANT being thicker than stock skates, if the cpi of the mouse is on spec, they will off spec-it. I'd only use them if the mouse has higher cpi than nominal value.

That said I just started using my g403 with old wmo tigers again (brown packet, black feet) and I'm surprised of how much better the glide is compared to g pro HG,
on top of that many users are reporting that mx-5 HG are too thin for the new mx518 and they scratch.
