4 Mouse wheels broken in xornet 2 :O
Hello, i've owned 4 xornet mouses since 2017 and last one with the working scroll gave up, i'm looking for a replacement mouse with similiar shape, i've already bought MM 520 and g102 but they are terrible for my hands, i need a small lightweight mouse that is short and wide preferably, every mouse of that criteria i find is too weighty though (more than 90/95g is too much for me)
Ironically enough tho my hands are very large, i barely move my hand i only aim with my wrist so it has to be short/low lenght and preferably wide for my fingers to rest

Is the wheel itself, or the encoder broken? You can simply replace the encoder with some soldering, there are tons of options on AliExpress, just make sure to get the right height.

I don't have a mouse recommendation, but if you're interested in repairing your old mice:

Did the encoder fail(doesn't scroll right), the switch fail(click problems), or the wheel physically break? If you aren't afraid of a soldering iron those first two issues are pretty easy fixes.

Assuming it uses the same encoder as the Spawn, it would be ALPS EC10E1220501

Switches would be D2F-01 or D2F-01F, depending on if you prefer heaver or lighter click force.

Mouse wheel is physically broken like pic related,
the tiny plastic bit cracked in all 4 of them, same issue
i've found a pic how it looks like https://i.gyazo.com/51d1a3e6258096d2...d165bb1fe9.jpg

ah, so it's like the finalmouse issue. I guess assuming you can't source a wheel the only fix is to use an allen key as a replacement hex shaft 5/64 size or 1/16. It's tricky to pull off, you need to spin the wheel in a drill chuck while holding a drill bit still in a pliers.
