[HWC] Southpaws Unite – Razer Develops Unique DeathAdder Gaming Mouse

post #1 of 24

Razer has now taken on the daring task of developing the wildly popular DeathAdder mouse, into a style specifically designed for left-handed gamers and this one in particular couldn’t be more excited.


“Leftie gamers have long been requesting that we develop a gaming grade mouse that is designed exclusively for the left-handed gaming community and we really value the feedback we receive from our fans,” said Robert ‘Razerguy’ Krakoff, president of Razer USA. “Not many gamers know this, but I am a southpaw myself and feel truly excited to have a mouse that fits perfectly in my left hand. There is really no substitute for gaming with your naturally dominant hand.”

Never used a Razer mouse, but I love my G5 and I could see how it would really suck to have to use one with your left hand.

Good news for all the lefties out there though.

Nice and interesting. I'm a lefty but mouse with the right hand thanks to years of forced acceptance that I'd never have a good mouse

get out of here with the Southpaw lol

I fight both depending on my position and Im a Righty, though my mom did tell me i started a lefty hmmmmmm

My left jab is a big faker though, no pop to it only really for hooks and kidney shots, the right I can fly

it is too bad that 90% of the Human race will nto buy this, why? because they all grew up on a computer with the keypad and Mouse being on the Right Hand Side!

Its not like England! just cus in a car the shifter can be left handed or right handed, depending on where you sit, doesnt mean a PC should =)~

I'm faster at knife fighting and wing chun with my left but my right arm is stronger. Just strange how our brains work.

I'm curious. But I'm not sure. Lol. I write with my left hand, but most of my life I found that I do different things with different hands. I throw, dribble, shoot, with my right hand, I drum more comfortably with my left leading, but am right handed on the bass. I've always used a mouse on the right side. I wonder if I'm really left handed...

Too bad I'm not willing to shell out the extra cash for this mouse and find out. Could potentially see an increase in performance... or major decrease. Lol.

DeathAdder is the best palm-grip mouse IMO. Only con is no sensitivity-adjustment buttons like the G5.

Even so, I use it instead of my G5 for gaming.

You can use the side buttons for sensitivity adjustment if you want, nearly every razer mouse comes with on-the-fly sensitivity adjustment.

I'm left handed, but I feel like a retard when I try to move a mouse lol. :|


Then again, I'm very ambidextrous with other activities... lol

I'm left handed and I couldn't imagine using a left handed mouse....

It would have been nice back in 1999 when I first got into gaming but not today.
