Logitech G Pro / Grip Texture

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi,

From high rez detailed photos I've seen, it looks like the G Pro has a grippy side texture that is different from the plastic texture on the top of the mouse/buttons.

Is this the same side texture that the old G3 and G9 (with small shell) had?

Thanks!

It's not very grippy whatever it is.

The G9 (with small grip), G3 and G518 all had the same rough feeling texture.


So hard to tell from photos if it is the same or not on the sides of the G PRO. And there's no where I can test this out locally. $70 is a lot to put down on a mouse without knowing the feel. Size I got 100% certainty of, as there's dozens of overhead photos of this mouse compared to others that I have.

You may think that rough textures equals more grip but for me, personally, it makes it harder to grip unless my hands are moist (with sweat tongue.gif). Think about it. A rougher texture (something like this - /\_/\_/\_/\_/\) will have less surface area than a smooth surface (like this - ________) because there will be fewer contact points. Our fingers already have grooves in them for the purpose of gripping things, why decrease the surface area further with rough materials?

I agree 100%. I'm hoping this mouse is relatively smooth. I don't care for the rough texture of the G3, G9 and G518. That texture is one that I've used and is a point of reference for me.


Any owners or reviewers verify this?

The texture is extremely mild on the sides and non-existent on top. It doesn't feel grainy or rough, just like there's a bit more friction.

Would you consider it similar to the sides of the G303?

Pretty close. G303 a tad bit smoother.

The sides on the G Pro are the same coating that is on the top of it, and let me tell you it is not grippy what so ever. It has that semi grainy texture which is aweful for grip, and with dry hands it is very slippery and smooth.

I agree, sides weren't grippy on mine, had to put tape on it to make it more grippy.
