The ones for the XM1 are pretty dope, as were mine for the GPW from last year. I never had any problems with their skates so far...

Both are extremely good mouse skates in the end, just comes down to preference.
you need to spend at least 30 hours using them to break them in. any comparison before that is useless, the initial feel/glide/sound are the most useless.

also, after 1 month of extensive use, my corepads on GPW became a swamp. I replaced them with another batch, and 1 month after it was exactly the same (swamp).

it was never like this with tiger arc on GPW or other mice.

PS I've had 3 different batches of core pads, since the first release that was too thin, to the fixed one (still thin) and then the proper thick one. in long run they are worse than stock GPW feet imo, because of this inconsistency.

Mh did you try the new corepad batch? I'm mostly playing with tiger arc gpw now and i find them slow overtime. Hotline were better than this but they do not produce 0.8mm rounded anymore for some reason

That did not happen with my GPW skatez. Used them for months and after they broke in, they didn't change. Using them only on clothpads.

I bought a set of G305 feet last week directly from Corepad. I'm sad to report Corepads are still pretty ****.

1) For some reason the backmost foot is not rounded whatsoever. It's 100% flat and I see it leaving streaks on my mousepad, so I took it off.
2) Even with this piece taken off, the feet are not rounded properly. They are rounded to a certain point, but past that thickness there's a sheer edge. I can feel them scraping against my pad as soon as I apply any pressure to the mouse.

I think this company is managed incompetently or something. It cannot be this difficult to round mouse feet. I'll just buy Tiger Arcs in the future.
