I don't want to get into an argument about this. I wasn't trying to be condescending or anything. So if you felt that way, I apologize. My main complaint is that I think you should have been clear that it's just your opinion that the scroll wheel is the only good thing about the mouse. Our whole discussion and my previous comment is predicated on that statement. What you should have said is, "It's the only thing I
like about the mouse." Therein lies my main issue with your blanket statement about the G502. Which, by the way, is objectively the best selling Logitech gaming mouse. See CPate quote below.

Also, I've explained many times in the past what I think the pros and cons of the G502 are. I seem to disagree with many people in this forum about the topic. If you really want the full story you can look at my post history.
Here's my timeline with mice: Logitech MX700, MX518, G5, G500, G500S, G502, G403, G Pro. I suspect there are many people that have a lineage similar to that. I LOVE that shape of mice, as you can see from my purchase history. I certainly agree with you that the G502 shape is not similar in shape to the MX5xx and G5xxx shapes. However, it still fits my hand very
well. In my experience, that always seems to have alleviated the weight problem others have. I use it with no weights added. The clicks on the G502 are fkin awesome. They aren't pretensioned like the G303, G403, G Pro, etc. Logitech used a pretty ingenious technique to get them to feel they way they do. I have a post describing that in my post history if you're curious. Both right click and left click sound the same on my G502, feel the same, actuate quickly, etc. Pretty awesome for having no pretension on them. Obviously, you can't forget that it has the PWM3366. I mean, how could you? It was the first mouse to have that sensor, and it's awesome.
I'll tell you this, some G502 owners are
insane. I mean have you seen the subreddit, /r/G502MasterRace/? There are people who have ALL the weights in this thing, and still want more! Now THAT blows my mind.
I use the G Pro at home now to game. I love it. The low weight IS awesome. Perfect for playing Tracer and having to do 180s after blinking behind someone. That just didn't feel as nice or as easy using the G502. For CS:GO, I never really had that problem. Holding angles and pivoting 90 degrees either way is pretty much the norm. If you have to 180 in CS you are usually already dead unless the person behind you flat out just didn't hit their shots.
All that being said, I will buy the Roccat Kone Pure 2017. It's shape looks very similar to the MX518 and it has a low weight with a PWM3360 variant. Quite exciting.
