Get out of here with that 1/2/2 crap. 1/3/1 dead ring lip rest 4 life.

G Pro is still a fantastic mouse though.

exact the same thing for me. im going back and forward, the only problem really i have with the g pro atm is misslicking rmb after fast 180 movement

ec2-a got to slow clicks and g pro to fast tongue.gif

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.

After playing with it for a while, I am still highly ambivalent. If you grip the sides, the mouse is uncomfortable for me when using at length. I think a lot of people's issues can be somewhat mitigated by the fact that you can press the 2 main mouse buttons without having to stabilize the mouse by holding it on its sides. The buttons require so little actuation force that this is doable without the mouse moving, it just takes some training. This has helped me with both improving control and also with cramping with using the mouse at length.

At this point, I may try out the g403 and see if it's better. I prefer a shape slightly smaller than the EC2 (which is why I own the Zowie FK1) so the G403 being a little large is putting me off.

Fk1 is a large mouse and ec2-a is a medium mouse..

It might be the sides of the mouse. I have bigger hands and when my hands are dry it is hard to grip it, so i tense up (since the mouse is really narrow) . This then ends up in my forearm and hands starting to hurt. Since everything other than the shape is perfect(apart from the cable, but that one is tolerable ) i will order the G403 to see if it fits my big hands better (and works for my clawgrip).

Kinda sucks since i really like ambi mice more than ergonomic and i like small mice. But being comfortable is the most important factor for me when it comes to performing at my absolute best. Worst part scenario is, i will have to use the g403 over the G Pro in a palmgrip, while having a good as new G pro in the closet(8 days already and no one answered my ticked at logitech).

Got my second pro from Amazon because my first had a weird loose/gritty feeling when scrolling. Main buttons feel the same, but the side buttons have huge travel again like my original one from Logitech. Scrollwheel feels better, though (I still consider the scroll button to be unusable for gaming purposes, though). I can press the side buttons almost completely inside the shell whereas on my other one with the good no-travel buttons, they always stick out. Out of three mice, they all feel different. How can Logitech's build quality be this bad? Got so frustrated I dug out my old first-gen FK1 and am using that since I'm currently playing something where I need to be using the scroll button a lot.

Patiently waiting for Hyperglide to make G Pro mouse feet. Hopefully the glide becomes really smooth.

My recent experience with Logitech took 2 weeks to finally get a response. I was able to return my G Pro and G403 right away once they acknowledged my ticket. Have you tried using the Live Chat feature?

So we had a G Pro come into our Best Buy today, I decided to grab it and give it a try. For reference, I'm currently using a Nixeus Revel, I've previously used a Roccat KPM, Logitech g303, and Zowie EC2-A.

Of all those mice, the G Pro is objectively the best I've ever used. It feels exactly how a mouse should feel. Clicks are perfect, side buttons are perfect, scroll wheel is perfect, sensor is perfect, glide is perfect, and it looks good. The rounded sides are a bit off-putting at first, but didn't bother me in actual use.

This mouse is objectively flawless. Subjectively though, I prefer the way the Revel fills my hand a bit more.
