Maybe they didn't like the mouse chassis scrapping on the pad.

Wish they would ditch the rubber grips from both sides. I have problem gripping the mouse once my hand starts sweating during gaming sessions.

Depends on the esport. Interestingly there was a spreedsheet of what R6S pro league players used recently. Sponsors have almost no influence because the scene is small and new. Anyway logitech was the most popular, followed by razer and I think zowie was third, but it may have been SS. Anyway it defenitely isn't the same in every game.

*this may change if Logitech decides to throw money (aka: sponsor) at some pro teams which would force them to use their gaming mice. But who knows.
Who exactly? Only videos I've seen are Shazam saying he liked it, but it felt "too glidy" or something like that. Unless you are talking about stewie2k being a spastic which says more about him than the mouse.

It occurs in waves. One company will get the focus until another draws attention.

So I wonder if there are some subtle changes to the shape.

The "esports" marketing is great because when they make these lofty claims we can call them out on it. They either have to admit they're BS or actually improve their products to make such claims.

Autimatic said the Pro is good, but he wants to try the G403 intead.

I'd like to have your opinion on it. I just moved from my DA chroma (used an older version of DA for 6+ years) to the G pro. Could consider going back if it turns out to be good.

for people with different tastes*
Hand size doesn't matter
I have small hands, but I'm using deathadders for years
It's all about preference and getting used to it
Also, I can't use small mice comfortably

I've bought (and returned) a ton of mice and the one mouse I keep coming back to is my DA:Chroma. It's the mouse I'd love to hate. Maybe it's because it just gets the job done but I could do slightly better with something else (like the G403 - although, I'm still trying to get used to the oddly different M1/M2 switches). If you dismiss the company's practices and look at the mouse for how it functions for you, then overall, I'd say the DeathAdder is a very good mouse.

Is there any point in getting this DeathAdder Elite? If you have money to spend, sure! I never really had a problem with the 3989 sensor (or 3310 or 336x) because in-game skill is something you don't get by buying an expensive mouse. Over the years, I've learned NOT to fall for Razer's marketing pitches. Their main competitor when it comes to click and motion latency is Logitech. If the Elite passes up my G303 in regards to click and motion latency, then maybe, just maybe (as I reach for my wallet) rolleyes.gif
