Sensei was pretty much the flagship of Steelseries and Sensei Raw Rubberized is actually on par with Rival 300. You probably just havent tried rubberized version at all.
I haven't tried it, but it shouldn't be that different from the Orange Heat and the Frost Blue. I also had friends having the same scroll wheel problem as I did with the Sensei, but luckily their mice are still working.
IMO there's no point on buying a Sensei RAW right now, there's way better options out there.
I have a DA3,5G that I used for 2 years straight, and I have it for 5 or 6 years now. Still working fine, and the build quality feels better than the Sensei RAW for me. But I tested the 2013 one and it didn't feel as good. Never had a problem with Logitech mice, the G100s doesn't have a great build quality, but it's understandable for 20$, and I've been using it for 2 years on and off and I never had a problem with it.
The only mice that I actually had trouble was the Sensei RAW and the FK1 (Scroll wheel would randomly activate sometimes, and it developed double click on the scroll wheel after 1 year or so)
