It is really difficult to get a feel for that wheel. Much like rolling a steel wheel tyre down the road. It just goes.
With a plain plastic scroll wheel attached to an ALPs scroller you can feel your way easily. Its far more precise and you can easily select where you are going on the screen.
Never liked using the Steel Wheel from Logitech, simply too 'Flintstone-like' to use effectively.
