just get isopropyl alcohol or denatured alcohol from guardian and use it to remove the rubber coating. It dissolves the rubber like nothing.
I used it to remove the rubber coating on my old razer DA
this works ..

i use it on the diamondback telfon.. and its all gone.. left the plastic.

but the sides.... can clean up.. also.

Once the rubber coating is gone, the sticky thing also gone as only plastic surface is left.

but isnt doing so even worse?

2 weeks ago, I fished out my old Razer Pro Solutions out of a box of rubble.

The buttons are sticky as hell like the picture here. Actually, mine was even worse. I forgot to take a real picture but I guess you guys know what I mean.



Spent some time working on it and now this is how it looks!



What do you think?

It's not a picture of a 5 year old mouse taken when brand new. Notice the new BlackBerry Bold 9900 in the background. LOL.

-1 for Goo Gone Spray Gel

i used it for my razer mouse, it was a painstaking process... in the end brute force prevailed.
