Out of the two you mentioned, there is a big question to be answered. Does weight bother you? If you like a lighter mouse, then the rival is your pick. It's not all too much heavier than your Savu, but is a REALLY different shape. The G502 does have a great sensor, but you're looking at a mouse that weights 50% more than your current unit. It is really hard for me to deal with the weight in game. I am using the FK1 in a Zowie AM-GS body, which is lighter than the already light FK1, and it's perfect for me. I can go a touch heavier (g402), but that's about as far as I go without having to pay attention to my mouse hand.

the rival is 110grams which is much closer to the g502's 120 ish grams than the savu's 90 grams . we get it the g502 is heavy.. but stop inserting obvious bias when the rival is also heavy and no where near light/ the savu. it's not like the rival is a feather and the g502 is a brick. heck even the savu is on the heavier end of "light" . the rival is also bulkier than the g502 and harder to hold for most people without large hands which he probably doesn't have if he's using the savu.

and when is 30 grams 50% of 90 grams?

that being said i wouldn't recommend the g502 for a palm grip.. but the rival may be too big for you if your hands are small enough to palm the savu.

I suggested the KPM. I said the Rival because he offered TWO OPTIONS. They're both good, but one is lighter and one is heavier... There is no way to dispute that. I then stated that I have a hard time with the weight. If he wants a heavier mouse, then the G502 is the choice.

I try to be neutral with this, and I do use the G502 off and on. I have no reason to throw crap at the mouse that I use... I have no dog in the hunt. I don't care what you use. I can only offer my experience, and that is that the Rival is a bit easier to handle in a FPS game at low DPI levels because it's lighter. I'm perfectly comfortable with the shapes of both mice.

i got the impression from your post that you were making out the rival to be a feather and the g502 a brick.. and the g502 is unusable due to its weight and the rival isn't.. when they're both heavy and about 10 grams difference. not to mention the rival is bulkier/bigger which is a bigger factor for most people. i just wanted to clarify in case others got the same impression from your post. anyone with a small/average hand might argue that the rival is more difficult to handle , not easier. 10 grams isn't going to mean anything when the mouse is pouring out of your hand .


i do like the rival , i was pleasantly surprised when i finally got to try it out . but in tc's case it might be hard to recommend either of the two options, though the g502 might stand a better chance due to its shape and feel compared to the savu
