As i said, it's preference.
However i'll inform you about the pros/cons.
First of all, i agree - the mouse looks badass.
But the coating isn't durable. It could wear off after some months.. which would be a big dealbreaker for me.
Some people complained that you can see some light scratches after some days of usage.. don't know if it's true however.
Not cool imo..
Another thing is the glossy finish could make your hand sweat.
Some don't get bothered by it, some do.
Some do like the extra grip, some don't.
Also you would need to clean it from time to time.
If you can live without the features i do recommend the Sensei RAW Rubberized, it's also cheaper ofc
Here is the comparison chart:
