CM spawn or Razer Abyssus - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
The weight of the abyssus is really attractive right now, but whats the point of having a light mouse if you can't move it fast and smoothly over your mousepad because of the bad mousefeet. I'm still leaning towards the CM spawn, but i need a more indept comparaison from experienced FPS players.

The Spawn is a great little, no-frills, but very solid performing mouse. The feel and build quality is better than any of the Razer mice I've owned or used (DA 3G, DA 3.5G, Mamba, Lachesis, Diamondback), though I've never had an Abyssus. The Spawn's initial firmware had some flaws, but Ver. 32 works extremely well on dark/black mousepads (your QCK Heavy will work great with it), but not so great on white or light-colored mousepads (for that, you can use FW Ver. 30a, but it will have a higher LOD). My Spawn was one of the early ones, which I managed to get on eBay, before they were officially released in the US, and the skates had sharp edges, that took a while to break in, but now they are as smooth as anything else on the market, including Hyperglides. The new Spawns supposedly have rounded edges on the skates, so there shouldn't be much, if any, break-in period. I've had my Spawn 3+ months at this point, and the skates still look and work great. The Spawn doesn't jitter on any pad I've tried, whether hard or cloth. Love this mouse.

Oh yeah, the build quality... far superior than Abyssus (Abyssus with those plastic glossy sides looks like a toy). Great little is a good way to describe it.

I just can second the others who say positive things about the spawn - this mouse is the best for claw-grip users.

I'm gonna be honest here, I thought about it, and i think the abyssus is better suited for me since it'll probably up my game more than the Spawn will. I mean there's no noticable characteristic on the spawn that will make me perform better.

Although the only thing the Abyssus has over the Spawn is the weight, none of the spawns pros: Sidebuttons, Build quality, (shape i don't know) will be better for gaming.

Overall, which mouse do you think will be better for gaming?

The thing is, the abyssus feels really good if you use clawgrip, BUT only until you sweat just a little bit.
So after a few minutes ingame, you find yourself pressing the mouse harder and harder to not lose the grip.

Is it harder to grip than the deathadder, cause I had one and I had no issues with it. Maybe it's the fact that I was palmgripping the DA and the Abyssus is a claw-grip

Spawn:
+ for no jitter on any mousepads I've tried
+ for build quality
+ for side buttons
+ for optical encoder on scroll wheel
+ for DPI buttons
+ for rubber side grips
+ for macro capability
- for weight (though it's not heavy at all, just heavier than Abyssus)

Abyssus:
+ for weight (vs. Spawn and most other mice)
- for sharp edges
- for glossy finish
- for jitter on some mousepads (may or may not apply, it's a gamble)

Pretty easy choice, if you ask me. My $0.02.

Now I will be honest too...

There's no hardware in the earth that will make you a better gamer, I think you should be aware of that. It will at most stop bothering you in very tiny and specific points but by any means it will be a significant part in leveling up your gaming skills.

A nice hardware will help, yes, but only up to a certain point. If you give a crappy mouse and a crappy keyboard to a good player he will still motha****'n pown you with the best mouse and the best keyboard.
