    Not all trackballs are created equal..

    On my 8320, the trackball was rough and had a "scratchy" texture to it...grip. When my ring broke, I ordered a combo, and the new trackball was...smooth. I like the originals texuture, but the new one is much quieter.

    On random note...my pearl 8100 had a smooth trackball. The one I ordered was "made for pearl". Is this why?

    So...what do you guys like? This applies to older series that have the "old trackball, not the bold curve 8900 tour etc

    I wish I had a smooth trackball. That way I could sneak and use my bb at work. The one I have now makes much noise whenever I scroll.

    Haha the old trackball would be loud. But it did have good texture.

    Note I did not post this in the accessory forum bc I can't access it via wap

    I like the rouch trackball, I order a trackball that happen to be smooth and it didn't work out so well. Went back my original trackball and it feels so much better

    I like it rough. That sounded bad lol. Anyway, I like the resistance when I roll it. My friend's mom's trackball is slippery.. not fun to use.

    Huh, didn't know there 2 different kinds. I've only had the rough trackball, and it works great.

    Haha after spending a day with the smooth ball, I gotta say the rough one was much better. The smooth one doesn't have enough traction, screwing up brickbreaker. Its much better sound wise, so those sneaky teens out there might want a smooth one :P

    I like the rough trackball. Sometimes I wish it were just slightly smoother for scrolling web pages. Works wonders on brickbreaker, though. Lol

    Uh...are you referring to the sound that comes out of the speaker?? I've never had a trackball make enough noise to disturb people in my proximity.

    I got the G1 trackball and I liked it because it was smooth, but has great grip on it.
