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.
