An Introduction to Hyperglide Mouse Skates
What are Mouse skates?
Mouse skates are strips of
smooth (usually teflon) tape stuck to mice feet
to make them smoother and thus increasing accuracy
ingame. How mouse skates work is that they reduce
the amount of friction between the mouse and the
mousepad. As a side benefit, mouse skates also protect
the original mouse feet and mousepad from wear.
This helps gamers save mouse and mousepad replacement
Why are Hyperglide Mouse skates different from
Hyperglide started in 2003 with the mission to provide
gamers an alternative to the fast-wearing mouse
skates in the market. You know what I'm talking
about. Afterall, how many of us are fortunate enough
to be sponsored with unlimited supply of mouse skates?
These skates are developed for gamers by a real
gamer and this is no lie. I have put Hyperglide
skates through serious field testing using avid
gamers like yourself and firmly believe that Hyperglide
mouse skates are the best. In fact, I started Research & Development during the Australian winter of 2002 to produce a better mouse skate before the Hyperglide name was even created.
Hyperglide skates are built around three main strengths.
- Because Hyperglide skates are made from
pure untextured teflon, it delivers premium glide
across any surface.
Durability - Other brands of mouse skates are so thin
that the material wears out quickly (roughly 2 weeks
of heavy use). However Hyperglide skates are 0.50mm
of pure untextured teflon (see specifications).
This results in skates that lasts for months1. Take a look at tested durability results here.
- This refers to Hyperglide skates being
able to provide the same "feel" from the
first day you use it till when its worn thin months
down the road. As a very picky gamer myself, I understand
the need to have a constant feeling of the mouse
when gaming. I believe that only through consistency
can gamers truely improve on their playing skills.
results were obtained via feedback from various
gamers who have adhered strictly to application
and maintenance instructions given on this site.
Results vary in response to unmeasurable and unstandardised
factors like pressure exerted and surface used on.
Please refer to disclaimer.
This is why we all invest in mousepads and mouseskates.
We all know that tape based skates lose their original glide and feel after a week of usage.
After a couple of weeks they become sticky.
This is why Hyperglide mouse skates are the best.
