rubberized coating not as good as expected after a few months?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I've had a sensei raw since last Febuarary.. but lately its getting to the point where it feels sticky & greasy all the time. I know someone will say this is a hygeine problem but I wash my hands, and try to clean the mouse with a damp cloth and dry and it still feels like crap..Anyone else notice this with rubberized coatings?

Depends on you really. I have naturaly dry hands and prefer rubber coating.

The rubber coating on the Sensei RAW is worlds below compared to the old XAI. The build quality on these RAW editions are just bad. frown.gif

Good to know because I was looking into buying a RAW but after seeing your complaints about it's "Razer-style" quality, has me looking at their upper end model the "Sensei Edition".

What is the difference between the lower end sensei raw and higher end in terms of quality then? I thought it was the same mouse just one didnt have the screen.

The rubber coating on my Zowie Evo CL EC2 is cracking and peeling off well before it got to the greasy stage unfortunately. These rubberised coatings don't seem to be all that great for mice in the end by the looks of my mouse.

That's because the CL is plagued by alot of QC issues.

Might buy a glossy sensei.. should i stick with raw or get the better edition? I don't really want to get readjusted to a new mouse..unless there is something similar to the sensei's feel for under $55
