Ducky's new mouse - Secret - Page 23

post #221 of 477
120g is definitely a no-go, it will be the heaviest mouse with this kind of shape, and all possible positive aspects are not even close to overcome this issue, if you aim for maximum gaming performance.

And like the DA chroma, the Rival is also 105g btw.

Because the kone pure military actually weight's alot more than 90g:

Interesting. In hindsight I guess that makes sense since the 90g number came from Roccat IIRC, so they probably got that weight by completely removing the cable i.e. getting rid of the part inside the mouse too. Though either way my point still stands, mice at the same weight will feel different due to shape/size. Even if the Rival was 120g, the Ducky would feel quite a bit heavier since it's smaller. But since the Rival actually weighs 10-15g less the Ducky will feel like a brick in comparison.

I consider 100g to be heavy, anything above 100g is very heavy. I don't want to use a mouse that is 10*g. I'm okay with 85-90g, but I would like a mouse to be lighter than that.

The G100S has a ~15g weight inside.




The G402 has a ferrite and retainer inside the mouse. The cable connects at the rear of the PCB.

They wanted to make a "high quality" mouse and of course, as always, first sign of quality is absurd amounts of weight.

I've heard that PBT is heavier, but only by a few grams.
post #226 of 477
Yeah, I'm a bit surprised by how heavy it is. It was my understanding that PBT should have added maybe 10g at most and given the size of this mouse that'd probably put it at DA/Rival weight, maybe a touch more. And looking at the pics from that one review posted earlier, it doesn't seem like they put a bunch of excessive plastic inside like Logitech is fond of doing. So where does all that weight come from, did they just go thicker than usual with the shell or something?

Maybe the cable its self is super heavy, so the cable inside the mouse itself could give a few grams.It also could be the LED display if you can call it that.

Cable not likely.
LED "display" , plausible imo

Let's see how it goes, I couldn't handle the G502 because of its large size. Weight wasn't as big of an issue because I use a very low friction surface but I would prefer it to be lighter.

The Ducky is ~10mm shorter than the Rival and G502 and also has a thinner profile (~6mm less) so the weight should be easier to deal with.

I'm not really sure I follow your logic. The mouse should actually feel worse specifically because it's smaller but heavier. Bigger mice can get away with higher weight. The Ducky is gonna be heavy by default and feel even heavier due to the size. If you end up being fine with it, it'd be in spite of the weight and not because of it, or maybe you actually just like heavy mice.

I asked mechanicalkeyboards.com for an update on their shipment, this was their response:

"Ducky has told us that we should have them by the end of the month."

Still a long wait. frown.gif
