Well I recently got my Roccat kone replaced, it failed after 8 months, even the weight fell off (never once removed it).

So when I get this "New" mouse it took me over an hour to get it to work, did not work with the software it came with, i.e. the CD.

After one months use the bottom is almost completely worn, obviously this was a used mouse that they cleaned. I was wondering if there's anything I can do to perhaps "Replace" the current plastic in the bottom the keeps it going smooth.

Thanks!

No, just peel off the old skates, clean off any glue residue from the old feet and pop on the new ones. Try not to touch the adhesive on the replacements. It loses stickiness very easily if touched before applying. Oh, not sure about the Kone but the feet I ordered for my G700 came with two sets. So you should have backups if they ever need replacing again.

Oh awesome, that seems very easy to use!

What would you recommend I use to peel it off? Don't want to scratch anything.

Sorry I ask a lot of questions!

I just used a fingernail. The original feet on my 700 were soft enough to be gouged with a fingernail and came up easily. Whatever you use once you get a corner up they come off easily. Any scratches to the actual mouse itself will be covered by the new feet.
