[Sponsored] Roccat Kone Pure Owl-Eye Gaming Mouse Review - by Ino - Page 2

post #11 of 160
thanks for the good review ino. you are right: i have slightly smaller hands than you, and can indeed not reproduce the grip issues. that might be cause i am able to have my pinky a little more pointing downward than horizontally aligned to the right side of the mouse. so to me, this is actually the perfect mouse.

Nice review, exactly what i wanted to see, the switches/scroll wheel and lot's of pics compared to popular mice(ec2-a/g403/g-pro). thumb.gif Honestly it looks so small even compared to small mice like g pro/ec2-a, i thought it was bigger.. tongue.gif

Maybe i'll look into lancehead TE.

Great review Ino, a great job reviewing as always.
Being a person with medium hands (18x10cm),i don't get it why Roccat still does this mouse... From what i see their design is for palm grip since it's ergonomic, but with that size, who's target are they aiming to? Women or children? I tried before Roccat pure optical and it was small even for my hand size... From what i remember the building quality was top notch, but size was meh..
They should consider doing a kone version 1.5, a few millimeters longer but of course smaller, lighter than Emp,which is too big for medium hands..

Who says it is designed purely for palm though? If so all ergonomic mice are designed for palm, which is not really true biggrin.gif
I got 18.5cmx10cm isch and I claw+fingertip hybrid grip all my mice, kpm is no different, and size is not to small.

I had the same experience, trying to use it in palm doesn't work with my 20cm hands. The right side of the mouse is the weakpoint that makes it unsuitable for palmgrip players, i would assume that is even the case for smaller hands. However in clawgrip it is usable although only barely and only after applying oliver racket grip tape so the sides.

Personally i would expect people with hands from 17-19cm to be able to comfortably clawgrip the mouse. 18-20cm for fingertip grip.

I have the kpm (same size as the kp2017 owl eye) and I do palm grip it, i have 17.5cms hand and have no issues at all.

Mind providing a picture for reference , so people that are interested can compare it? Since with Ino's style it doesn't work. And with my handsize it is only usable in clawgrip. That would help out some people with smaller hands being interested in the mouse.

After opening it up do you anticipate any issues installing a ceesa paracord

Well, even if my hands are ~ 19,5 x 11, I'll give this mouse a try.
I felt the GPro shape great for quick aiming but I was not able to track comfortably.

Just curious about how the KPOE will feel.
Thank you Ino
