Space on my gaming desk is very limited and I'm currently struggling with the thick logitech g303 cable, so I would appreciate if anyone could suggest a mouse that performs somewhat equal to the g303 and has a cable that is super light and flexible. Thanks in advance.

I wasn't really thinking about swapping the cable. I want to try out a new mouse since I have been sticking with g302/303 since they came out and I got kinda tired of the shape and mainly the cable. So thanks for the answers, but I would like to see your recommendation (since you all seem to have a lot of experience with mice) for a new mouse that features comparable performance and a good cable out of the box.

For your Mouse porn pleasure, I present the Logitech Pro w/ a CeeSA cable (that matches my McCree olympic skin):





The CeeSA cable honestly makes the Pro feel like a wireless mouse. Can't recommend it highly enough - great upgrade from the cable that comes with the mouse.

There aren't really any mice with as good performance and similar shape to those with a good cable. Partially because performance wise the g303 is basically the best you can get unless you make something custom like qsxcv has. All you can look for is something that doesn't perform much worse. Your best bet is replacing or de-braiding the cable.

Did you just remove the top mouse feet or put a hole in them?

Carefully removed, set aside, and put back on afterwards. Worked great. Requires patience.

relative to the original cable, probably.
but try the g pro without any cable in it to see how it feels in the hand

Not at all. It plugs into something. Literally. You remove three screws, pull the mouse apart, unplug the existing cord, plug in the new one, screw the mouse back together. Done. CeeSA will make sure you have the right plug already on his cord if you tell him what mouse you are buying the cord for when you order it from him.

To be honest, the hardest part by far is carefully removing two of the mouse skates that cover two of the screws and then putting them back on. Once hyperglide and other companies make replacement skates for the pro, you can skip this step and just rip off the skates and replace them with new skates. For now, I wanted to put the old skates back on so had to spend about 15 minutes carefully removing them. Replacing the cord took about two to three minutes not counting the time it took to remove the skates.

Edit: make sure you have a tiny screw driver for the pro - even a "0" is too large - need 00 or 000.

Awesome, that is good to know. I will probably hold off until aftermarket skates are available as I know I will most likely mess up the stock ones

I've been looking at CeeSA cables for a while and can't find the price + where to buy for the life of me.

I'll PM you since I don't think I'm allowed to link it here. I found his post on geekhack, another site I frequent, and just filled out his form. He contacted me the next day and shipped it out within a week.

Thanks.
