Corepad skates getting better and better over time

I've bought corepad skates 4 times as of now writing, 1 time for g403, then g903, then g pro wireless and now again g903.
At first they were not rounded, scratchy and with a lot of friction. (g403,g903)
Then they got better, smooth but still not as smooth as hotline games.
These new ones i've just got for g903 are pearl white color compared to older corepad bluish white skates of g pro wireless (you can notice this if you own both batches and compare one next to each other) and they are very very very smooth, better than hotline games.
Did they update their GPW skates too?

Soon i will compare them with tiger arc sthat are arriving for my GPW.

I guess they did it with all their skatez, but I guess they would sell the older batch first till it is out ... so maybe just asked them via email ( [email protected] )
Edit: new Sensei/Xai skatez are also better as the version I bought ~5years ago ... and also got 2 alcohol prep pads now with the package

i got a batch many months ago that was so awful it was unbelievable. the edges were like knives. they would literally borderline cut into my mousepad and leave huge streaks. i might try some of these new ones in the future and see if they're any good

btw, something i would like to see from one of these feet manufacturers is a line of generic/bulk skates. just small rounded dots of varying thickness and diameter. could be inexpensive cause no need for special molds.
i really don't like most mice's feet shapes, they seem completely random and done for aesthetic/marketing reasons. small dots are best because you can actually brake with them.

Just got them for my razer viper, takes a while to get to australia but they're great.
I had one absolutely terrible batch like a year or two ago for my sensei but ever since they've been perfect.

the new sets for Sensei/Xai/Sensei Ten ...
are coming now with a Sensor/Center Ring and rounded edges & 0,7mm Thickness
I think they changed them because the Ten has a Sensor Ring
and new MS IE3 / G-Wolves Skoll/Hati have now rounded edges & 0,7mm Thickness

I've got an update for comparisons.
I've Installed tiger arc on my gpw, they are better but not exaggerately better than old batch corepad.
new batch g900 corepad i think is better than these. Both are smooth, but new batch corepad is faster. Tiger arc however is quieter than G900.
Both are extremely good mouse skates in the end, just comes down to preference.

I know what batch you're talking about.
I had a G900 batch from them three years ago, that was so completely awful that some of the feet didn't even fit into the recesses (they weren't trimmed properly).
Never had any problems with hotline games' feet, whether their performance, competition or master feet lines.
