It's all simply preference, especially with something that is so varied like grips because we all have different hands and different ways of holding mice. Especially if you look at just the people that post here (so a rather small group of gamers) you get so many people who change their mice in tiny ways (layers of grip tape, remove edges, change feet) to make them fit that you will always have people liking on shape over the other no matter what. If the sides were straight on the G Pro there would be people saying they want them \__/ or others saying they want (__) etc.
Btw I hate talking about shape in reviews because there is so much bias and preference in it that whatever you do to describe it the result will never be good enough. People need to get a hands on for themselves to judge a shape. Still arguably shape is the most important factor, so you have to try to cover it somehow properly.
It is and i agree with everything you said. I'm fully aware of the personal preference of mice (and it's completely justified when talking mouse shape), but at the same time i feel, even if i do it in an expressful way (saying things straight up that obviously stick in certain people's eyes in here, despite being an opinion of mine), that the sides on Logitech G pro was taken too far in a way that i feel it provides more negative outcome than positive in terms of stability, precision and capability when playing fast paced shooters. In my firm opinion, i believe Logitech did a mistake having \__/ that went too far (instead of taking ideas of e.g Abyssus v.1 if their firm idea was to have a small base frame).
That being said, it is still a very good mouse regardless, but it did not match the hype and that might just be the cause to why a debate about it arose in the first place, and why people are so sensitive when saying certain things are crap/bad from one's own perspective. Despite it's flaws (Sides, too heavy, too low lift off distance, bad skates, a bit too sensitive M1/M2) i would still give it a 3.8-4 out of 5.Edited by Karz - 10/1/16 at 8:17am
