You're not alone in loving these things...but, alas, they're no longer being made, as I just found out tonight.
I just bought some new ones a few months ago--one of which replaced my 15(?) year old Logitech Trackman Marble (not the same product as a newer trackball with the same name).
I cannot BELIEVE that Logitech would make such an idiotic decision as discontinuing the Trackman Wheel...but they did. Like you, I'm not the least bit interested in cordless versions. This **bleep**.

It's not a smart move to discontinue the wired version and leave only a wireless one. I've just started looking to replace my CC2-9F trackball, and won't be getting a wireless one. The trackman wheel is a perfect replacement for it, but I guess I'll have to buy used.
Fortunately my company has a few spares for the ones they connect to the KVMs in the data center. Wireless isn't allowed in there.

I bought the m570, but have found that the Trackman Wheel was the better product for me. My hand tends to cramp up with the smaller size of the m570, and it does not seem to be as precise as the Wheel.
Please Logitech, bring back the Trackman Wheel!

I'm extremely disappointed to say that BOTH of my [still relatively new] TrackMan Wheels are failing. They're failing in exactly the same way, too, i.e., their scroll wheel isn't making contact with its spoke-based mechanism. (I hope that makes sense. If not, unscrew your TrackMan Wheel and look inside where the scroll wheel turns.) They're still scrolling down, but not up. Coincidence? I don't think so. What are the odds that two trackballs I bought at different times happen to be failing in exactly the same way?
I guess I'd better contact support while there still may be some replacements available...

You know this is just ridiculous that they would discontinue such a great mouse.
I've been using this exact mouse for the last IDK how many years, I’ve owned at least 6 of them over the years because of the simple fact that they have always worked great and work for me even though I have a screwed up arm. My military service left me with an arm that can't work with any other designs and now the only similar model to this one is a **bleep** wireless one that I don't even want to bother with.....
Why can't we get a wired version of that mouse instead of having to blow money on batteries? This garbage with people thinking everyone wants a wireless everything is ridiculous.
This product needs to be re-released, I know me and my family would be truly appreciative if it was. Almost all of us have been using this same mouse for almost as long as it's been available. I know we would be purchasing at least 6 of them as soon as they come available as our units need replacement and I would probably purchase at least 2-3 extra just to make sure that I have enough to hold me for many years to come.
I'm utterly disappointed in Logitech’s decision to discontinue this product! If this product goes back into production I would appreciate immediate notification that it has gone on the market again!

I would really like to see this mouse come back. With the damage done to my arm from my time in the military it would be really nice to have a trackball that I can actually use.
With the damage that was done to my arm this has been the only form of mouse/trackball that I am able to use for extended periods of time.
I can only hope that logitech will bring this item back and hope that it is done in the near future.

Over the years I have owned at least 20 Trackman Wheels. I love them. I am down to repairing them myself
when the swicthes or cord finally fails.
I tried Logitech wireless products and I hate them. Always disconnecting for 30 seconds or more.
I do not understand Logitech Sales and Marketing killing products that sell. I would rather pay $40 for a corded
Trackman Wheel than pay $60 for the wireless one. Actually, I will opt for a competitors corded track ball mouse
before I purchase the Logitech wireless.
Hello!!!! Anyone in Logitech marketing read these forums!
