flowable silicone


#1

should I put flowable silicone on my m1 or keep it stock


#2

Preference. I’d say try it either way and see what you like best. Some people like pads, some people like silicone.


#3

Do you have the flow groove silicone? If so, then put in silicone. If not, try what you like the best.

i think u should just get the pads. its a hassle getting the silicone out if u end up not liking it. its good though, just make sure u know wat u r doing


#5

lol @ you silicon is super easy to get out bro


#6

i got one with pads and i wish that is was more unresponsive. it is semi-unresponsive but just seems to never break completely in. i siliconed my dm a while back and it turned out really good. can you silicone the pad version of the m1?


#7

I guess, but it will come out quicker, less to grab.


#8

Yes, you can silicone the pad version. They were originally made to take silicone as well. The Flow Groove one is just easier to silicone, I suppose.

i would sili it, but it is all personal prefrence.


#10

I dont know which one I got
I think I got the flow groove.is that the one that is clear or are the pads clear?
mine is clear
im pretty sure its the flow groove just wanted to double check


#11

They both come with pads stock, different sized pads, though.

Left: Flow Groove
Right: Pad

thanks kim-lan
I have the pad response
but the flow groove is less responsive right?


#13

Yeah, it is unresponsive out of the box, but with some breaking in (or cleaning) of the bearing, the pad response M1 will become just as unresponsive as well.


#14

thanks
thats good to know
I like unresponsive play
and the bearing takes a long time to break in so I will have to live with it for now
