I’m loving the new players in after market mouse feet. Before this increased level of activity, Hyperglides were one of the few options available for some if they were out of stock or didn’t make your model of mice, you were out of luck.

Tiger Gaming has come in with the Arc and Arc 2 improving on every generation of their product, if you’re looking for more widely available high-glide mouse feet, this is it.

Tiger Gaming have a great product with a smooth glide, rounded edges and very reasonable prices.

Specs & Compatibility

Tiger Arc and Arc 2 mouse feet are made of a proprietary PTFE blend. They’re not pure virgin PTFE, it looks like there is some dye or lubricant added. Compared to the Hotline Competition skates, they’re definitely faster out of the box.

Tiger Gaming looks like they’re working quickly to provide compatibility for most major brands of gaming mice, see the full list here.

Unboxing & Packaging

Hotline games neatly stuffs their envelopes with individually wrapped packets, in the package you get:

  • 1 or 2 pairs of skates (Arc 2 only have one pair)
  • Alcohol wipes

The Arc 2 has the wipes and feet in one plastic package.

I wouldn’t expect much more than this given the pricing, the packaging came damage free and pretty quickly, within a week from Hong Kong to Toronto.

Installation

Installation was easy, its the standard procedure as with all aftermarket mouse feet: remove, clean, stick and press.

I will say the feet with individual sheets of plastic gave me a little trouble peeling off, but that might be due to my fat, clumsy fingers.

Fit

The fit on the Tiger Skates is great, no issues with fit on a G Pro Wireless and the Model O.

Thickness

Tiger Arc and Arc 2 thickness varies by model, they’re anywhere between 0.2 to 1mm thick. I’ve not had any issues with unevenness or tracking

Glide

The Tiger Gaming skates glide like a dream, while they’re not pure PTFE, their feet get pretty damn close in terms of glide. The Arc and Arc 2 have rounded edges, so there’s no scratchiness if you happen to land your mouse at an angle.

Comparing to the Model O stock pads, the Tiger Gaming Arc mouse feet are significantly smoother. Tiger Gaming skates require a lot less effort to move the Model O around, you can still feel it even at this light weight of a mouse. The Tiger Gaming skates are above average in terms of speed.

Compared to Hyperglides, they’re close, they’re not as extremely fast as Hyperglides are, but the smoothness and speed get close without being pure PTFE.

Compared to any of the Hotline Gaming skates, they’re faster, the edges are rounded compared to the Hotline Gaming skates, I prefer the Tiger Gaming skates.

Durability

As with all mouse feet, the Tiger Gaming skates will take some time to break in for an optimally consistent glide.

Conclusion & Recommendations

This isn’t a very complicated review, if you’re looking to replace warn out skates and don’t need maximum glide, you can trust the Hotline Skates to deliver consistent glide without much worry about compatibility, they support almost all major models of mice.

  1. Is there a thin layer of plastic on the glide side of the mousefeet that needs to be peeled off ? My Tiger Arc where so damn slow but i couldnt get any plastic off

    1. There is! It took quite a while to peel it off. Try testing an edge with something thin and see if you get any separation.
