Mouse from Steelseries - Rival 100 - Page 105

post #1041 of 1497
The mouse actually is quite grippy for me, i have dry hands and it does not glide.
The small plastic bumps works wonders actually, without them the mouse would glide all over the place in my hand.
I even prefer them over the rubber on Rival.

Heh, for me the sides get very slippery after a while and I have to wipe them at least once a day. After that they're very good though. The top coating is almost good as the coating on KPM though.

Yeah I like the side for my dry hands and they don't suffer from that weird feeling you get with the rival that they are indeed separate from the mouse.....I hate that feeling.

I definitely prefer them over rubber on the Rival 300 but I completely hate anything rubber on a mouse, I'll take the Rival 100 sides any day over that. But after trying the Rival 100 I think I prefer texture plastic or just raw plastic sides more.

I'm just surprised how you people can be so picky about something so irrelevant as side grips, as long as it does the job. I wonder how people can not address the elephant in the room - the fact that it's just too low. It's only for claw/finger or for small hands palmgrip. You can't possibly get any kind of support from the palm. I can't understand how people can be so picky about scrollwheels, cables .. even clicks - as long as they don't have a delay and are spammable.
I personally quite like the sidegrips on the Rival 300. Rival 100 are quite slippery.
Just my 2 cents.

I'm all about

Shape > Feel / Weight > Sensor-position > LOD

I can change the cable, change the feet, change switches, even cut plastic out to lower weight. I can't change the side-grips without launching a 3D program for most mice.

But if you know the mouse is small (which you do) then why complain about the fact that its only for claw / finger when you know thats what the shape is made for?

It's too low for you. I have average sized hands and Rival 100 is fine in all grips. ZA however is too high for my taste, it's just impossible to add any minuscule movement with fingers and the mouse feels so 'clumsy' in my claw-grip.

Yes, but most people confirmed, for example, that FK1 was too low and too narrow. Also, many people confirmed that Kana v2 was too low.
Also, being "fine" isn't what I consider as a good performer. Like, if a mouse allows me to play "okay" is not really good enough. I can play "fine" also with office mice. I would've liked it to be 39 or 40mm high. But yeh, can keep dreaming smile.gif

Also, a host of other ambidextrous or (close) mice are high enough -> g100s, g303/g302, savu, kpm(not ambi but small), za series, Zowie AM, Sensei/Xai, Abyssus etc, wmo. Even though they might have the same height or measurement, the way the arc runs is more natural and provides more height. Or the slope is just more steep to provide support for all grips. The only ones that fail here are Kana/FK/Rival100. (not gonna include kinzu because it is that small)

It is not to low for me, it's perfect.
Also why I loved diamondback.

So yeah it fails for you, personal preference nothing more really.
