It's weird that such a small detail makes a huge difference.
It's not weird at all, they're constant creating unstable grips on their mice, and while they're aesthetically pleasing, and the sensor feels great, I can't actually use the thing for more a few days because of the inward slope on the sides. It means there's a sort of ledge at the top of the mouse that sticks into your ring finger, and draws your pinky towards the bottom of your mouse, which you can't rest it against comfortably because the mouse is narrowest at the bottom point. It's particularly acute on a small mouse because there's not a lot of room to put your fingers on the side, so sloping it inward effectively makes it so you've cut almost half of the grippable space on the side of the mouse. They've simultaneously made it feel wide at the top and too narrow at the bottom, so I feel like I have to constantly adjust my grip, and I'm never quite comfortable in-game. I'm not sure why they cant just COPY shapes that people actually like.
