I would say Rival 100 feels more premium than Kinzu but Sensei/Xai is more premium than Rival 100.

So it means that in a few months we'll be seeing it for less than 30$?

I still think there's no need to use a custom version of the 3050 (or a public AM010? can't remember) in this mouse. Could you explain to me, marketing wise, why would you do that? And also release a new shape?
I know a lot of people that loves the Sensei/Xai, but instead they use a FK1/2 or even a Newmen GX1 Pro because of the sensor in the Sensei/Xai. I still don't know why Steelseries has been against the idea of an Optical Sensei/XAI for such a long time...

I hope it's nice and light weight, anything under 90g

I have one in my hands at work right now, haven't played anything with it yet, only used it at work for about an hour. The shape is really nice but it's just too small, I'm 99% sure this will cramp my hand like crazy when I start playing, just like the FK1 does.

- Clicks are really nice, pretty similar to the Rival
- Sides are not rubber but hard plastic
- Personally I like the scroll wheel a lot
- DPI steps are 250 > 500 > 1000... didn't really check where it went from there

It's a pity this isn't bigger, it could've been really good for me.

To hell with you Steelseries, you stupid bastards...

It being small is just the thing I am after, but it does not seem to small.
It's the size of Kana v2 which is almost to big for me ;O

Shame if it lacks 800dpi step since that is what I prefer to use.

Can you measure the mouse size dimensions.

It's smooth inbetween the knobs but the tops of the knobs are more rough, IE like they'd been sanded.

EDIT: It's still hard plastic though, in other words not good for sweaty hands. Personally I like a more rubberized coating all over since I tend to sweat a lot.
