A few comparison pics then. First an overview, left to right: G302, VentusX optical, IME3.0, DA:E, G403. Note that I aligned their bottoms, to get a good idea of the size.
And some side by side comparison between VentusX and IME:
I tried both next to each other and I'm actually surprised as to how similar the feel of the IME is, they're more alike than I expected, not having touched my IME for years and years. The front feels almost the same with my grip, and while the back is also similar, it seems a little longer, so will reach further back towards your wrist. The IME will touch your palm more towards the end of the mouse (both the ball of your thumb and the opposite area below your pink touch the IME, while the VX has more contact area near the thumb, and a little less near the pinky. But in general the feel is not so far apart imo.
To me, the biggest difference in feel between the two, is the very pronounced ring finger (and maybe pinky) rest on the right side. **** now that I know I'm missing that thing, always felt great!Edited by pindle - 3/17/17 at 11:59am
