Has any1 had any issues with it ? I.e.uncoiling ..kinking etc ? As this is my main concern.
Also ..the MMO 7 ..is the thumb rest adjustable like on the RAT 9 ..would rly like to have that adjustability ..but the RAT 9 only comes in wireless ..which i hate.

The RAT 9 is a wireless version of the RAT 7. If you like the RAT 9, then perhaps you should look into the RAT 7.

FYI, the RAT 9 has a very good range, I have no problems using it 8- 10 feet away from the receiver. Of course, the receiver is on a cable, so you can also move the receiver wherever you like. The LiIon batteries are actually quite light and add almost no weight at all to the mouse. In fact, the RAT mice are heavy mice, so if you don't like heavy mice you may want to skip the RAT mice completely. They have aluminum chassis which makes them fairly heavy. I have removed all the weights from my mouse and it's still quite heavy (which I like). If you like light mice, I would suggest trying a Razer mouse.

Also, the RAT 7 costs quite a bit less than the MMO does. In the post directly above this one, you can see TheDuceCat posted a picture of his RAT 7.

Oh i know they will be weighty due to how well they are made and the material. Im glad ot hear the battery doesnt add all that much.

I really wanted the RAT MMO 7 for the extra thumb buttons .but also wanted the adjustbility of the thumb rest form the RAT 9.

I think in the end the number of buttons will sway it. Ill probably end up getitng the RAT MMO 7..unless ofcourse they bring out a RAT MMO 9 by march next year tongue.gif (which as i said is when ill likely buy a new mouse) ..can always hope.

I didn't know that the R.A.T. 9 added anything but wireless over the 7...

The mmo 7 thumb rest does tilt ouward. Not to the degree that the rat 7 does but not by much less and still enought to make it a "hidden feature". The screw is a philips to angle the thumb rest. I angled mine amost as soon as i recived it and kept it that way as i perfer it to the stock setting.


@Mad Catz Rich

Thanks for the response. I have yet to send the unit away. Obligations and such i just dont have time to send it off. I will still call before sending in the unit to see if advance rma is possible. Sidenote, does my rma ticket number have an expirory date? Its been less than a month but over two weeks since getting my rma email ticket number.





And cause if you dont ask you dont get sooo.... ill ask if they can throw a few new unreleased mousepad in for all the hassle and shipping costs incurred.

It's worth repeating that the aluminium chassis is not the heavy part of the R.A.T. - it's only 18 grams on its own! Possibly the heaviest part is the steel rod that the thumb rest moves along, but really it's a combination of the whole structure that supports all of that adjustability. And really, they're not that heavy!

The G.L.I.D.E.3, 5 & 7 are available on the US store right now and they should be on our European stores within the next two weeks. The 9 should follow around the end of November.

There shouldn't be any expiry on your tickets, cravinmild.

The mice or the Aluminium Chassis? Cause actually R.A.T. 5/7/9 are the heaviest "gaming" mice.

smile.gif My point was that the way some people talk about them, it's as if they're saying that using one is like dragging a 10kg weight on the desk.

Ive never found the mice to be heavy in that it effects my ability to be responsive, I get the feeling of solid build when I handle the mouse.

@ mad cats rich,
Thanks, good to hear.

Honestly the heavy weight of the mouse was one of the biggest selling points with me...

This. Could have been even heavier and I would have been ok.
