    well, i think its rubber and if u were to change it to a glass ball of the same size, it may give u more trouble than the rubber one. judgung by the look and feel of it, it seems that rubber is the only thing that would work properly, as it has alot more of a grip than glass...for glass to have any type of grip u would probably have to make verry small grooves on it to grip the little spinny thingies inside of the trackball mechanism...

    but if anyone knows otherwise, please post...i would also like to know...

    I always wanted a stainless steel ball bearing. Never looked into it or tried. Don't know how well it would work, but it would look damn cool. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    i want to make some...i was also thinking of just snatching the ones out of the "test phones" at the best buys and t-mobile stores lol...


    and a BB may fit...the trackball looks about the same size as a .177mm bb...but then again, it might be bigger...its been a while since ive seen a bb...ive been using pellets for my rifle and others in my co2 powered airsoft collection...

    The diameter looks to be about 2-2.5mm. I can get out some calipers and check.

    If anybody has a micrometer you could mesure the size and see what fits.

    There's one at the shop I work at, but I'm on the road and won't be back till late this afternoon. If no one else has one, I'll check and post later today.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~tried the ones from display phones...no dice. That is an awesome idea. I'm pretty sure a bb is too small. I like where this is going
