I might hate it
whereas Rival700 has the shape, but it has the weight and the premium price ..
anyone here tried Rival 100 ? did you hate the shape/grip ? is it in any way similar to Rival 300 or completely different experience ?
although Rival 100 is probably also too small for me .. I tried the Kone Pure Military in a store once and it was so small and light it was unusable for my large hand .. Rival 100 looks to be only slighty longer and a bit heavier so its probably still too small
I can shine some light on the Rival 100. I like others here have become a mouse snob. If it doesnt have a 3310, 3988, or 3360 I immediately have no respect for the mouse. However i bought the rival 100 because it was on sale for 25 bucks on amazon, and I just needed to buy another mouse to get my fix for the week. I was using the Gigabyte xm300 for a few weeks, and I generally lean towards larger ergo mice with my 21 cm hand. Without writing you a 5 page love letter of why I love the rival 100, I will just say that I have found my spirit mouse. Its honestly crazy, like its my soulmate. Everytime I talk myself out of using it and pick up any other of my 12 mice I always go back to it. Here is the facts brother.
1 The mouse is light
2 It's shape was apparently crafted by the gods to fit my 21 cm hand perfectly in a fingertip grip. Yes.. Thats a fact
3 Its affordable
I play at 500 dpi and the sensor is flawless. People can knock the 3050, and I usually would too, but they did a great job with the 3059 variant. I hate the fact I love this mouse honestly. Its like finding your soulmate and realizing she is 300 lbs and not that pretty. You try dating hotter dream like women that just play hard to get, and when you get them you just arnt that satisfied. Then you call up your big girl and she flies over to your house and you just have sloppy amazing sex, and you just love every minute of it. So yea, I love the rival 100, even with its plastic side grips, 'inferior sensor' and 250 incremented cpi stages.
