Actually has there been a completely broken type bad 3310 implementation yet? There were quite a number of 3090 mice with spaghetti code firmware(*cough* rat3 *cough). Just ask LaView and CM Storm about that. The spawn was a complete disaster(don't forget the recon with it's cost down internals that resulted in uneven polling rate when the lights were enabled).

well zowie fk1 looks terrible in mousetester iirc. but yea 3310 firmware is harder to screw up than 3090 since you get 16bit registers, so no need to read motion registers superfast to get higher malfunction speeds, 50dpi steps so no need for mcu scaling to get whatever dpi

aside from firmware, we dont really know whose illumination and stuff is better or worse

this looks interesting
never got any RAT mice but i'm looking forward to a light weight mouse with a good sensor

So has anyone bought this? It weighs 77g, running on 3310, could be nice if that awful sniper button doesn't screw you over.

Some comparison shots would've been nice.

I bought it, but I already put it away and won't be digging it out. For whatever reason the shape doesn't agree with me at all and gives me some pain no matter what adjustment I make. I was actually really surprised about that since I never have actual pain using mice and it seems like a shape I should enjoy (bought it because it has a vaguely G9-esque profile). That and I don't like the build quality/design anyway. I like to keep my middle finger on the top-right edge of mice during general browsing but with this the entire piece is the right mouse button and it clicks really easily so I accidentally press RMB if I don't make sure I'm applying little weight with my middle finger.

The side buttons are also really meh, and the sniper button is in as bad of a location as it seems. If I grip it tightly, like to swipe fast, I have a decent chance of clicking the button not to mention it's just annoying to have that there anyway. Couldn't even unbind it since they didn't even have the software ready for it (also annoying since you're stuck at 800/3000/5000 until that is available).

I've bought a lot of mice and end up storing basically all of them because of one reason or another, but this is the first I actually regret buying. I didn't even try it out in a game since I didn't want to deal with the non-sensor issues. Of course, this is just my experience. My main issue is the shape; the other stuff is a bit annoying but if I liked the shape I could deal with it, so if you think it looks neat then maybe try it. However, based on build quality alone this isn't a $70 mouse. The Aurora felt like a better-made product.

I do like to try it, it's just I want to see either some comparison shots or measurements with mouse at its smallest setup before spending money on it.

looks interesting, good sensor, back can be tilted, i love it, ranging 60 to 70 pounds now, gotta wait for price drop patiently. Rat TE with laser pte 2034 was good for my hands to grip in clutch fragging moments at the time of testing funzies, and is one of aesthetically better looking R.A.T.S

RAT1 + RAT PRO S, could be a nice company for my RAT TE in a drawer and on mousepad

Is there any possible way to grip it without your thumb being on a button? In my experience that makes my hand cramp faster than anything else. Either I put it on the button and I get a cramp because I'm trying to hold the mouse with a weird amount of pressure and weird things happen when I grab harder to flick or something or I have to put my thumb in an extremely awkward position which also cramps it.

Sadly the color aesthetic is ruined when you remove the cable braiding. It's a white rubber cable underneath.

82.5 grams w/cable attached. So it's heavier then my lightened G303. Removing the adjustable rear hand rest takes off like 7 grams though.
