CM spawn or Razer Abyssus

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Ok, my Xai broke, my DA just broke, I'm returning my Valor. This means the only mouse i have left is a crappy logitech g5v2. I'm looking for a claw gripping mouse

These two mice use the same sensors but i heard they both had tracking issues. I will be using the mouse on a QCK heavy or perhaps I'll purchase a artisan g3 mid XXL later on.

The shape of the abyssus appeals to me but the shape of the CM spawn is intrighing, I'm willing to give it a shot. So which one has a better shape for a claw grip.

Price is not a factor but the abyssus is cheaper from where I'm from.

Which of these two mice is lighter?

The abbyssus looks like its got some crappy feet, how are the feet on the spawn?

Anyways, I'm leaning towards the spawn right now because it looks better built and has the 2 side buttons which is always a plus, but i don't necessarily need side-buttons. I live Canada BTW, if i go CM spawn, ill probably order from amazon with the express shipping. I really need your opinion guys. I'm also open to suggestions.

The Abyssus is lighter, but I feel like the shape is made more to look good than feel good.

Neither have tracking issues if you get the abyssus LOL edition

The feet seem to be of the same quality but the spawn have rounded edges and are thicker so they will last longer

ok so if i understand correctly, the only thing the abbyssus has over the spawn is the weight and the price. But is the spawn really living up to the hype? If someone has both mice, can they post a comparaison plz.

I like mine quite a bit, though I haven't compared it to a Spawn.

That's still not guaranteed. For example, I picked up both a standard and League of Legends edition a couple weeks ago and both jittered on my Talent. It's still a gamble.

For those interested in cloth pads and the Abyssus, the Zowie GR-F works.

First impressions on Spawn (just my 2nd day using it):


Some people stated that it requires a bit of time to get used to Spawn's shape but for me this shape was very natural. If your grip is fingertip too, I definetly recommend this mouse. It's odd when you first see in the pictures but when you grip it, it just fits.


I felt the known sharp edges of the feet but after a few minutes I almost couldn't feel them anymore. I guess that in a week that feeling will be 100% gone. BTW, those feet are very nice and glides completely smoothly on Goliathus Speed, much better than Abyssus feet.


Yesterday, MB1 and MB2 was feeling different (MB1 a bit sharper; MB2 a bit lighter to activate) but nothing to be concerned about. For me this is specially good because I play StarCraft II and the easy click of MB2 is very welcomed. But today (2nd day using it), they're feeling pretty much the same.


I had the issue that some people have had with the software. Oddly enough, for me the program freezes only when Google Chrome is opened. In fact, if I let the browser opened and click "Ok" or "Apply", the program remains freezed; whenever I choose to close it, then after a few moments the program unfreezes (sucessfully exits on "Ok" or applies on "Apply").


I'm still testing it right now. In a few days I'll post a review of it, with a bit of comparisons to Abyssus, which was my main mouse until yesterday.

This is not guaranteed. I have owned two LoL edition Abyssus' from Amazon about 3 months apart and both of them jittered on vertical angles on cloth pads.
