Rediscovering Rival 300

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have been comparing all of my mice lately by playing different aim games. One by one I eliminated less performing mice until I had a TOP 5 which is:

EC2-A
Finalmouse 2015
Rival
ZA12
KPM

From these I eliminated following mice:

KPM: too small and weird shape.
ZA12: I couldnt figure out a proper grip style which would feel natural 100%.
Finalmouse: Squeaky mousubutton 2 and ergo shape not natural enough.

Finally I had 2 mice left. Reigning champion Zowie EC2-A and Rival. I compared these two for a long time and I noticed how similar they were. EC1-A could probably be even more identical than EC2. Anyways here is the final thoughts comparing these two:

EC2-A is winner as the most natural feeling mouse. But I really noticed how sharp Rival was. It was just a little too big for me. And buttons a little too stiff but in practice it performed almost as good as EC2-A. Rival felt 90% natural. And the most important thing:

Rival felt more "raw" and I felt like I had in some situations better aim. But in general EC2-A performed better. Because of these results I am now giving Rival a new chance and I will try it out again couple of weeks.

sounds like the Rival 700 would have been perfect if not for the gimmicky stuff they added and increased weight

It's a really great mouse and makes the 3310 feel amazing, literally my only reason for not using it was the stupid stress reliever is so low out the front of the mouse that it drags on the mousepad, it's literally the same thing as having a braided cable and defeats having the rubber one.. I hope they fix it in the future and I'd probably use the mouse again, the long/wide shape helps you keep the mouse straight or at least that's why I think it feels so accurate/easier to control

Trim the strain relief?

@ncck - exchange the cable to the right one ;)

Most agree that the 700 without that SS bs would be a very very solid mouse. Pour one in hopes that they actually listen some time soon.

Something about it does feel easy to control, I agree with that.
