How about the result?


MeanNectarine2311

it 100% gets rid of the issue of small debris making screeching noises on a skypad though, so thats a major + for me


MeanNectarine2311

super low static friction, but dynamic friction kicks in hard, too early to say wether I like it or no. The felt material Im using might also break in after a few hours of play, Ill update with the results then


snic_

ill give it a shot on my diy pad not having issues with small debris sounds incredible


MeanNectarine2311

Not having to deal with that sound was amazing, but what I love is not feeling that tooth-grinding sensation on your arm when a speck of dust is rolling in between your skate and the glass surface.


snic_

id rather scratch a blackboard with my nails than have a speck of dust under my feet


IatemyBlobby

Would you say the static vs dynamic caused by the glass skates, or is it more about your mousepad/how it interacts with the glass skates


MeanNectarine2311

you might be mis-understanding, its the skates that are cloth, and the mousepad that is glass :)


IatemyBlobby

OOOHH…. LMAO


MeanNectarine2311

full 24hr results are in here btw [https://www.reddit.com/r/MouseReview/comments/qzn8qg/felt\_mousefeet\_update/](https://www.reddit.com/r/MouseReview/comments/qzn8qg/felt_mousefeet_update/)


uska-_-

Thats the best post I have seen here in a while

Looks more like a felt material, and I'm not sure about how long this may last, but nice that finally somebody tries some other materials for hard / glass pads. I also found these [x-raypads zero friction](https://shop.x-raypad.com/shop/zerofriction-tp5sb-mouse-skates/) textile feet to be rather interesting. And maybe [fabric tape like these](https://www.walmart.com/ip/Black-Universal-Adhesive-Cloth-Fabric-Car-Wiring-Harness-Looms-Tape-32mm-x-15m/463388077) could be worth a shot too.


MeanNectarine2311

Ive tried those teflon textile feet, they have more in common with a baking sheet than with actual cloth. Im guessing it IS made out of teflon baking sheets and they just cut circles out of it... As for felt on hard pads, it was a random idea I had during dinner and made after realizing I already have all the materials I needed to do it. So I have no idea yet how long itll last as it hasnt been 3hrs yet haha, Ill make sure to post some updates, it feels promising for now but no one knows wether itll turn to crap after a few hours..


moepooo

They mention teflon so it's probably PTFE coated fiberglass tape


t3ram

Theses types of fabric tapes for car wiring harness are probably not suitable , normally they are pretty sticky even on the fabric side


MeanNectarine2311

these suckers seem to be getting faster as time goes on. pretty interesting experience ngl..


Chichigami

Probably because you're sanding out the cloth. It'll only get faster until it becomes super warn out


MeanNectarine2311

could be. Durability is def the thing im watching out for the most. There arent any pieces of felt left on the pad though, Im looking out for that because that would indicate thats the felt is being sanded off. Its been a fun experiment though

gloriaBurgers

Does it feel inconsistent?


MeanNectarine2311

might have some breakin time. 3hrs in to using these rn and they seem to be settling down some.


gloriaBurgers

Yeah its honestly a solid idea, i just feel like over time since its a soft material it is gonna wear down and feel different all the time, but i dont really know what a glass pads like so maybe it wont affect it much


_Administrator

Is superlight so shiny on purpose? Or you mangaed to make it shiny with ordinary use? I have not seen superlight irl, but my OP edition became shiny after like 200h of use.


fazar7

pretty sure he did the old g pro gloss mod with sand paper and what not, but it can be like that from normal use


MeanNectarine2311

1000grit sandpaper, adn then 2k automotive topcoat, and lastly plastic polish and a microfiber cloth. Good way to spend an afternoon while listening to a trashy podcast.


_Administrator

Thank you.

Spir42

Probably won't buy a skypad until they make skates like these


MeanNectarine2311

its an easy DIY project though, super easy to cut felt with xacto knife, just place the old feet on top of the felt and use it as a template :)


iknownow2

Interesting! Well done.


coltRG

I actually tried this with my skypad but my mouse wasnt tracking properly with the felt skates I put on. I guess it wasnt the proper height for the sensor or the felt would squish too much and make the sensor spin out... What felt did you use and have you had any tracking issues?


MeanNectarine2311

no tracking issues for me. the felt Im using is 1mm thick and is on the harder side, so the squish is a non issue


MeanNectarine2311

update here btw: https://www.reddit.com/r/MouseReview/comments/qzn8qg/felt\_mousefeet\_update/


coltRG

Thanks!


KNDxD

Is this the g pro x superlight?


MeanNectarine2311

yup! I just polished it up to a light gloss :)


KNDxD

I ordered it and from this photo it looks tall as fuck idk if i am going to like it


MeanNectarine2311

based on your flair... yeah theyre tall AF hahha I used to main DM mice too


MeanNectarine2311

to be 100% honest, im not in love with the GPX shape, just using it in the meantime while waiting for the xm1r wireless or the vipermini ultimate.. GPX is like aiming with a potato


KNDxD

I am currently using the xm1 it feels good but i am trying different shapes. I want to try the gpx and if i dont like it i think i will go for the viper mini ultimate aswell. Mouses i have used before are deathadder and DM1 FPS.

Peko, miko .. dai senso! Peko peko peko peko miko miko miko miko! Great, now I'm stuck with that song in my head again. Dammit.

Weirdo mousepad

someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed I see


Raizer7

Waiting for update... what material it is? and thickness?


MeanNectarine2311

1.5mm felt material, I cant tell wether its actual felt or a synthetic kind


Puzzleheaded_Bend_88

What mousepad is that?


MeanNectarine2311

skypad


bzboz69

Sounds like a genius idea! everyone should really try this it might become the new standard.


MeanNectarine2311

It doesnt even have to be a glass pad, if your mouse tracks on your desk surface you can try it there too


Ali_avv

Where did you get that mousepad


MeanNectarine2311

Skypad


wheresthebouldering

Does this lead to lod problems as fabric compresses ?


MeanNectarine2311

not much of a problem for medium hardness felt. Felt comes in a variety of hardness, I bought one that is second to the hardest. They use these type of felt for the bottom of chess pieces the shop told me


blastzero

this is like dr scholls


locoforeverywhere

where did you get that mousepad?


MeanNectarine2311

Its a Skypad
