Replacement for Cyber Snipa Stinger

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ahoy peeps.

The first gaming mouse I got was the Cyber Snipa Stinger, and I adored it. My only problem with it was the build quality. It was fantastic at first, but after about a year the rubberizing started to come off of the black surfaces and the USB cable stopped working. I loved the shape of it and its clicking response though.

Since then I've had a Microsoft X8, which was rather uncomfortable, and a Razer DeathAdder 3500DPI, which I'm currently using. The DeathAdder is nice, but the shape is starting to get a bit old, and I'd prefer a more contoured or ergonomic mouse.

So, the point of this thread is to help me find a Stinger replacement. I'm not too fussed about DPI or the type of sensor or whatever, my main concern is the shape and the feel of the click. Oh, and I'd prefer one with adjustable weights, or just relatively heavy stock.

Also, remember, I live in South Africa, so I don't have access to some of the brands you guys have in the states or europe.

Thanks! Any and all suggestions and/or comments welcome!

Just for reference, I'm talking about this stinger:

how comfortable was that cyber sniper

i dont know if the mouse can be shipped to you (cant most things be shipped anywhere just depends on the price your willing to pay?)

the puretrak valor is the EXACT same model and even tho you dont care for the sensor type it is the current best sensor there is

To be honest, shipping a mouse from the USA seems like an awful lot of hassle for something so menial, and they don't import the stinger anymore. The Cyber Snipa was a fantastic mouse, and it was uber comfortable. I'm really just interested in the shape. Thanks for the recommendation, but I've never even heard of the Puretrak brand before. lol.

dude lol... the mouse im suggesting is the EXACT SAME SHAPE

they both use the same mouse cover/case/plastic shape whatever you wana call it

on the plus side.... you get the best sensor AND the best shape because its THE EXACT SAME

go to puretraks site they make mouse pads and mouse skates and if you preorder the mouse you get a free pad thats actually really really good

also the mouse is the most important part of the gaming computer. DO NOT DIS THE MOUSE BUD

Yeah, that's the same exact shell as Puretrak's Valor. If you're in love with the shape, you should just preorder one. Should be one of the best mice available sensor-wise as well. You also get a free talent mouse pad if you order before the 10th.

I really liked my stinger too. I got a Xai to replace it just because they were 40% off at the time, and I play a little bit better with the Xai. I miss the macro side buttons though .

Xai is a completely different shape, but it is probably available I would think.

Cyber Snipa Stinger has the same size and sensor of these other companions: Revoltec Fightmouse, MSI gs-502, Trust Red bull racing extreme, OCZ dominatrix and maybe other brands too (They really use the same hardware, I own the MSI and I tried all the mouse-programs of the above mentioned models and they all work with mine, I mean if I use the Stinger or the revoltec's driver my MSI is recognized as it was a stinger or a revoltec by the driver; for example now I'm using the Stinger's driver on my MSI gs-502 as with its own driver you don't have the possibility to change the polling rate) ; same size and form but with different sensor (both optical and laser but the laser one has not the same sensor of the Stinger) You can find Gigabyte gm 6800,8800,6880. Hope it helps

Thanks a bunch Bagongolo, the Gigabyte 6800 looks like the perfect mouse! It's a pity it's an optical mouse limited to 1600DPI, but I actually play on low sensitivity, so it's not a train smash. It's dirt cheap as well, so it's worth checking out!

if you liked that shape, go all the way with Valor!

I would, but we don't have puretrak products in South Africa, never even heard of it.
