Shipping calculated at checkout.
NOTE: These are our standard SAPPHIRESKATES except with minor cosmetic defects and without the full retail packaging (The plastic capsule is still included, as well as additional spare adhesive). We want to reduce waste in addition to giving you the chance to pick up a set at a significant discount.

Key points about B-Stock:
  • Performance is not impacted. We still go through the same strict level of QC to ensure that every set performs well and each piece works optimally together. 
  • For B-Stock products, ALL SALES ARE FINAL. We will not accept returns for these.
  • We think you will be pleased with the quality. These are kitted with our latest most updated quality standards in mind, and come from recent batches out of our factory.
  • Minor defects are things like small chips on the edges or underside of the skate, which is due to the high RPMs used in the initial shaping process. Other examples are color variation, or slightly misshapen pieces. 
  • Will perform 100% as well as our standard non B-stock products as we ensure the skating surface has no issues.

Description of Blue SAPPHIRESKATES:
[Link to standard product listing]

  • Universal Fit, 5 dots per set. 3.25 carats of pure sapphire per set (0.65 carats each). Adds only 0.65g of overall weight total.
  • Diamond-Polished Glide for Lowest Static Friction: each of the mouse feet is individually cut from a single sapphire crystal boule and then polished for hours until reaching its precise final shape.
  • 9 Mohs hardness for consistency that never degrades: on the Mohs scale, only a diamond is harder. Only materials harder than sapphire can scratch it. (Note: this does not mean that sapphire is unbreakable, it can crack under strong pressure but this hasn't yet happened to us). 
  • Optimized dimensions for sensor tracking + compatibility: SAPPHIRESKATES is designed to work with all gaming mice and therefore has a diameter of 7mm, which is large enough to provide support but small enough to fit into almost any mouse channel. The height curves from 0.8mm at the edges to 1.1mm at the center, which is tested to provide the ideal distance-from-sensor length according to Pixart specifications.
  • The Most EZ to Apply: after cleaning the bottom of your mouse, it literally only takes seconds to apply SAPPHIRESKATES since the skates come with a powerful 3M adhesive pre-applied, which sit on top of a disk of virgin-PTFE. (And we aren't using PTFE here just to flex, it actually is a great material that is commonly used as adhesive release-liner). No fussing with having to peel off individual stickers.
