Maybe, I'm getting an RMA hopefully the problems are fixed.

There were also COUNTLESS driver issues I got with it. Hopefully it's rectified, but I can't say yet.

not at all, with dry hands I have some problems to lift my savu. As soon as I sweat a little, the grip is fine again.

I'll be sure to use my thumb lightly, I'm really liking my Savu.

@ ANDMYGUN Happy you like it.

@Haunter driver issues really? Never had a single problem. What was it exactly? (their drivers are the only real argument i stayed with their products while having 5 broken Kone+)

Really wanted to love the savu but my hand is not fond of the shape - cramped thumb / base of palm after an hour or so. Shame, nice piece of hardware otherwise

Are all the recessed thumb areas on roccat mice as sharply defined as savu's?

Only thing I'm not liking so far on the savu is the ridiculous lift off distance. This thing tracks at almost 1/3" high and it's pretty annoying, especially after going from years of EC2 usage which is like 1.5mm lift off.

This is on a goliathus, I don't really have any other soft pads.

If you want lower LOD, use it on a plastic mat like 4HD. Mine has lift off less than 2mm on it.

I am using Goliathus Control pad and for the lift off distance issue, I literally just put scotch tape over the entire sensor and now i have ~1.2mm lift off distance.

I don't know exactly if this affects the Savu, too, but I've read that using the scotch tape trick shrinks the performance of the sensor (max perfect speed).
Someone should test this though, just a hint.
