The red kinzu uses an auto-quality paint and it really feels nice to the touch. While it's slick it does NOT attract grime like the white version or the sides of a deathadder. It's really has a quality feel to it.
The white kinzu uses the standard, slick plastic. Think of the surface on the MX518 or the sides of the deathadder. IMO, in terms of feel I'd rank the Kinzus:
YMMV, some may like the rubberized feel over the feel of the red kinzu.
I'm not really worried about the grime, I just think a slick surface would slip with sweat.
Really is too bad, a unique colour and upgraded switches sounded nice.
EDIT: After digging a little deeper, the white version does not have the upgraded switches. I'll just stick with retail w/o the glossy surface.
