I got an answer:

Question

Hi Whilst I understand the appeal of RGB like in the Proteus Spectrum G502. When making a revision does Logitech consider weight saving, button replacement, switch enhancements because there were none with the G502 Spectrum? Thank You

Answer

We always consider improvements and are constantly innovating on product deign, but we are very careful to not change products people love in a significant way. The G502 is one of (if not the most) popular gaming mice available today and we wanted to provide the same great product with a little bling for the same price.



Now which of you lot love heavy mice and a awkward sniper button placement? mad.gifbiggrin.gif

Most people prefer heavier mice because they feel sturdier.

It's really only until you start researching mice and playing with lighter mice that also have a high build quality that this myth starts to fade. But for the lowest common denominator of gamers, a heavier mouse will feel better.

If you think there are only a few "hardcore" WoW or EVE players, you've clearly never played them much!

Unless this was sarcasm that I missed?

Any mouse with the 3366 you've made is incredible on a technical level. Yet the shape of the 303 leaves much to be desired.

WMO / Sensei / FK1 / MX300 / G100S /...

These shapes are more simple, yet allow a wider group of people to grip them the way they want. The G303 design "forces" a sort of strange clawgrip onto people and the edges on the side and back are to harsh, causing fatigue and even pain after some time.

The only part of its design I can comprehend is the front half.

It would be desirable if you smoothed out the curves or think about designing a more high end pimped up G100S shaped mouse or something new, but without harsh portruding edges.

You can add RGB lightening for all I care, it sells, I don't need it, but I understand the appeal to some.

Also, you could go down the Steelseries route, designing the same mouse twice with the same type of shell but no extra gimmicks on 1.

Per example a G501, no sniper button, same 3366 sensor, no weight system, ... You keep the base internals the same however, which would cut down on costs.

Odds are alot of old MX518 / G400 users would like this.

You currently have NO mouse that actually fits top tier players like it should and your tech isn't at fault, the shapes/weight are.

G303 is up for debate, if the shape so happens to fit the player, well lucky him.
