I mostly play LoL and Rust. I will eventually start to play more FPS games when I have a good computer and I will continue to play LoL.

What's your recommendation?

Hello dear community

I’ve recently purchased the zowie za13 to give it a try, i’ve been using it for the past 2 days and i noticed that the mouse feels warm to hot, i mean you can feel that your hands are recieving a significant amount of heat that feels uncomfortable

Worth mentioning i did not feel that while using any of my other mice, g203-gpro-g403 ..

Is that a common problem? Or it has to do with the kind of material used in the mouse?

Note: The room tempreture is farely cool since i use an AC

I tryed with this:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Anti-Slip-Racket-Over-Grip-Roll-Tennis-Badminton-Squash-Handle-Tape-New/401350587544?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=670967839209&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

But is is something like slippery rubber, I wasn t impressed.

So I need recommendation for Wilson overgrip that doesn t feel like rubber and that is good for sweaty hands. ANd don t recommend me pistol grip because they are not legal in my country.

I've heard quite a bit of negative feedback on its release, but with the new batches out and a couple of issues fixed, is this mouse now worth the buy ?

I play alot shooter games and use scroll wheel for swapping weapons. Every single mouse i used ended up with loose scroll-wheel with its teeth worn out, few had senstivity issues. Any ideas?
edit: preferably low budget

First of all, i would like to greet everyone from this sub reddit. I've been lurking for some time now and I found an imense love for mice's here and seeing all the mods and news about gaming mice. Since the announcement of the new logitech g pro with the fk-ish shape, I've been looking foward to get it as many of you certainly are.

Now I'm gonna give you some insight about my gaming career, I'm a highly competitive cs:go player where I live, and I also used to play with and scrim with pro's (of the owl) in overwatch from season 1-2 (yes, i did quit playing ow when there was no owleague, stupid me since i could be getting something in return for playing something i mildly liked).

Anyways, back then I felt an amazing control over my aim, while hitting insane flickshots and tracking to almost 100% accuracy, over and over for large periods of time.

Right now I feel something's off, I really dont know if it's me or what but I find it extremely difficult to do flicks and track (on csgo), I mean nothing has changed since then, the settings are all the same, the gear is all the same. Could it be the gtf-x that has worn down? I can feel that when I glide in the center of the mousepad, the g403 slightly slow's down, and when I used the outter edges the mousepads feels "faster", but still looks like something is wrong and off while I'm playing.

I've been using this for over 2 years, and I would like to know If any of you had a similar problem with the g403 or with the gtf-x. Thanks in advance :)

What are opinions here on this brand? I am interested in Ventus Z:

Good reliable software?

I got a new Tecware Vector with a Pixart 3325 sensor and the tracking is flawless on hard surfaces but doesn't work at all on my mousepad, a SteelSeries QCK. I made sure to disable acceleration, tried all of the DPI options, and the pad's been washed but still no dice. It DOES track somewhat if I hold it slightly off of the pad. Is this a sign of a faulty sensor? I was reading about LOD but there doesn't seem to be an option to change that with this mouse. Even weirder yet my old mouse, a Cougar 400M with an Avago 3090, works perfectly on the QCK but not at all on my desk. I wasn't sure where to ask about this but this seemed like the most likely place. Any insight would be appreciated!

I hope this is the correct place to ask this question.

I have the Logitech G402 and I am also using the Logitech Gaming software for most of the mouse config.

I want to remap the function of a key once the key (or any other set key) is pressed. [This is similar to what we can already do in CS:GO with binding aliases to change the function of the same alias.]

For example, I bind my middle mouse button to the keyboard key 1 and set it up in such a way that after 1 is pressed the mapping for the key is changed to press 2 rather than 1 (and so on...).

If not, I would also like to know, if there are any alternatives software which can accomplish this.

I recently bought a finalmouse ultralight pro and it arrived broken so they sent a replacement. It was broken as in the lmb didn't activate the clicks at all which was an issue with the plungers under the mouse clicks above the switches. I attempted to fix the broken one, even added a paracord and hotline games mouse feet. I fixed everything up and the clicks were fine the first day but ever since then they've been terrible.

Here is a video I took [1:12] : https://youtu.be/V3E2zjVziFo

The LMB is getting stuck if I press it down too hard which just started happening right now, and the RMB is loose / creaky which seems to be unfixable after the many times I've tried bending the plastic clicks which has always been a problem. The scroll wheel seems to be getting tighter and tighter the more I use it and sometimes even refuses to move at all. The mouse 5 button is no longer crisp and has a ton of pretravel now

Does anyone know how I can go about fixing these two mouse buttons and the scroll wheel? I don't even care about the mouse 5 issues because I never use it. I don't mind the scroll wheel being tighter but I can't have it completely freezing as I use it to jump in most of my games.

If anything I'm probably gonna end up just selling it as is, such a shame because I really like the shape and weight but this thing has so many problems and inconsistencies that it upsets me

Any help at all would be appreciated. Thanks so much

EDIT: Fixed the scroll wheel and side buttons by reseating them, still facing issues with the LMB getting stuck when pressed down (pops up delayed) and the RMB is creaky and has extra distance / popping noise / grinding sideways after switch actuation

EDIT 2: Fixed the LMB stickyness with isopropyl alcohol by cleaning reseating the plunger, FYI this is the one I didn't touch when the mouse originally broke. Now there is a ton of pretravel on it so I'm gonna have to open it up tomorrow and try to fix it again. The RMB seems unfixable.

I would really like it as close as possible to the M95, after 5 years of using this GLORIOUS piece of equipment I don’t think I’ll be able to use anything else.

I am currently am using a sensei on 3200 dpi, this lets me easily navigate my desktop and game menus, and I just lower my in game sensitivity under 1 using console commands for games like csgo that require precise aim. I've ordered a razer lancehead after not liking how the rival 600 or DA felt. I've read that the sensor in it has "dpi smoothing" over 1800 dpi. If I understand this right it means that it no longer has 1:1 track if you go over that? If so that's pretty disappointing since I can't return it and am stuck with it if it sucks.

Does this only mean the dpi that I have it set to in the razer software or can I set the dpi to 1800 then increase the in game sensitivity to make it go higher than that and work optimally? I'd assume that I'd be fine in csgo with 3200 dpi and 0.4375 in game sens because it makes my dpi exactly 1400. I'm more concerned about league of legends because I'm in the top 1% of the North American server in ranked and actually play with true 3200 dpi. Will whatever "smoothing" or non 1:1 tracking noticeably effect playing competitively?

thanks for reading.

I was just wondering if I upgrade my mouse skates, will I have to replace them much faster than stock skates? I’m mostly asking about my logitech mice. Because I have never replaced mouse feet before and I’ve never detected a need to but I want to try out better ones. But I hear they need to be replaced every so often. Do the nice ones need to be replaced more often because of the material or no?

Not a mouse but I'll give it a shot.

Looking for a good external touchpad, that is similar to a laptop touchpad with physical buttons. It does not have to be wireless.

This is because I acually perfer touchpads for certain tasks, since I'm left handed.

Please suggest wireless, silent (both clicks and scroll wheel), business looking and reliable mouse.
Couple of extra buttons under thumb would be nice. Up to $150.
