-How is the tracking?
-How is the durability?
-How is the mouse wheel?

Thanks in advance.
EDIT: Ignore this thread; didn't realize there were so many Rival reviews below. -facepalm-
This would be my first steelseries mouse and I'm impressed. I was hoping the kana v2 would be my first but I'm not sad at all about that.
First the sensor is damn good. Would even say its much better than the 3090. It's pin point accurate, no accel, no lag that I notice, and just works.
The size and shape of the mouse just works. I have zowie am, zowie ec2 evo, ec1 evo cl(which I'm returning because I love the rival) and had the zowie fk along with g400s. I can play for hours without my hand cramping up like the zowie mice. The side grips help a ton because it's effortless to pick up the mouse or grip.
The mouse feet are small and allow for a smooth glide. This mouse is heavy than the zowie mice but because of the mouse feet it's much smoother on steelseries qck heavy.
The cable is heavy and sometimes gets annoying but I've gotten used to the weight.
If you can order from amazon I would to try it out and if you don't like it send it back. It's why I used amazon instead of newegg now. I'm hoping this mouse will be made for many years because I think it's the best mouse out right now. The sensor, shape, grip, and mouse feet makes this a top tier mouse.
