- Far better stability
- Alot easier to aim with
- Just as fast as the G pro, despite being alot larger (which to me was really surprising. It could be due to the worthless skates provided with the G pro though which really slows it down)
-The shape with the narrowed down sides is very evident after a while, that it's simply not good in certain conditions which makes a much more forced aim than with the G403. You will miss certain shots you normally wouldn't due to this factor alone.

It's beyond me why Logitech decided to angle the sides the way they did instead of keeping it simple like G1 with straight sides or simply a softer incline. Obviously the reason behind it is to keep the buttom of the mouse as small as possible for faster turns but it's beyond me why they diden't follow e.g Abyssus v.1 sollution where they kept the base tiny without impacting the sides at the same time --> http://i66.tinypic.com/2ic1ik5.png

While G pro is good and you can do well, it's not a natural flow when you play with it. Again, for anyone with medium to large hands, G403 is superior. Everything you thought you did well with the G pro, you can do just as good and even better with the G403 and with much less effort in the process. G pro is imo a bit too heavy as well. Such a mouse should not be over 80g, but rather 75. In any case, G pro is indeed good, but not as good as the hype would suggest.

Mice aren't absolute. Some like this, some like that. I ordered both mice and ended up returning the G403 because I aimed better with the G Pro for what it's worth.

I'm going to give this mouse another good go over the weekend!

I'm aware of that. Again i stated my opinion answering a guy who wondered. It might have come out as an absolute statement, but it is indeed my opinion and nothing else.

What are the current issues w/ the G Pro? Is it just the overly light clicks for some people?

We are all different, my opinions about G403 and G pro:
I got 19x10cm hands, and the G403 is 100% vaporware for me, why?
Because its way to bulky/fat.

No matter what I do its just to big, I have a hard time doing swipes with it, even harder doing fast flicks up and down (which is the worst part of it)
Glide is the same for me with G403 and G pro, both suck, both glide equally.
G pro is faster for me since I can flick it much much easier.
I am a fast-mid sens user as well, 30cm/360.
Relaxed claw grip.

I do agree that I would prefer straighter sides rather then the slope, also some better material would be preferable for me because the plastic is slippery for me (this does get better with time usually though but annoying non the less)

I would class my hands as medium, and I cannot do anything better with G403 over G pro, rather its horrible in everything except casual windows work where the G403 is comfortable to rest my palm on.

I play since 15 year with the same mouse shape- I will not switch until the mouse totally break, I put the pmw3366 sensor into my mouse thumb.gif.
my g pro is refunded!

How's the pickup and flick factor of the G Pro and how does it compare to the Nixeus Revel?

Just got my Logitech G Pro in today. Here are my thoughts.

I have owned many mice with the Zowie FK, Zowie FK1, Logitech G9x, Razer Deathadder BE, and CM Storm Spawn being my main drivers over the last 5 years. I have many others but returned most of them. I actually alternate usage between my main mouse and a Roccat Tyon because I need a mouse with more buttons for productivity as well as MMO's. My grip is fingertip/claw. I am coming from a Zowie FK1 as my main driver.

I owned a logitech g303 as a backup mouse for a while but I could never use it for more than 20 minutes because it's harsh edges would cramp my hands. This mouse has almost the exact same feel minus the sharp (IMHO completely nonsensical) kink. I am liking the feel but am not yet in love. The sides of the mouse are convex so the footprint of the mouse is very small. That makes it less stable in terms of click stability. However, the clicks are so soft (yet still tactile) that it compensates for it well. I was using a self-modified Zowie FK1 (with Japanese Omron D2F-01F switches) and like the small size and profile but also the relatively wide base which made the mouse more stable. However, the Zowie needed it because the original switches are super-stiff and even with the Japanese Omrons, require more actuation force than the Logitech G Gaming Pro. Also the weight distribution of the Zowie FK1 is more evenly distributed, making it seem heavier than just the actual 5gram difference between it and the Logitech G Gaming Pro (the Zowie is heavier). The center of gravity of the Zowie FK1 is closer to the mousepad whereas the Logitech G Gaming Pro seems to have a center of gravity higher off the table that is about equidistant from my fingers.

I feel like I went from a BMW in terms of handling to an F1 Car. Movement is very light and precise, but I am not use to the small footprint yet. I think I will probably get use to it and the mouse might become perfect. It takes some acclimation. On a technical level, thise mouse is perfect. The clicks are perfect and light and the sensor is wonderful. I am happy not to have to use 400/800/1600/3200 fixed DPI steps of the Avago 3310 anymore. I got use to 1600 but 2000 fits the DPI of my screen better.

So far the Logitech G Gaming Pro is living up to the hype.

Does the G Pro feel like a lightweight G9x? If it does i'm completely freaking sold.
It looks like it has the shape of a Precision Grip G9x or Shell-Less G9x, does it feel like it?

Not sure if you guys live near a Fry's Electronics store, but if you do, my store had the G Pro on display to try out. So if your worried about the shape and you live near a Fry's store, I recommend going to the store and trying out the mouse yourself.
