[Official] The Cyborg R.A.T. and M.M.O Owners Club - Page 331

post #3301 of 3822
I'm using an older Saitek Cyborg aluminum pad that is a combo of black and red on one side (low res), and black and blue on the other (high res). It's sort of cool because you can actually change the response of the pointer just by flipping the mat over.

I'm guessing it's probably no longer sold?

I think I'm leaning toward the Corsair aluminum pad, worth a try at least.

Well, I haven't had any issues with my cheapo cloth pads on my RAT 7. Haven't gotten any issues with the laser or any of the parts.

Also, weighting enough to crack your skull if someone throws it, how can you lift it? I can get pretty serious on UT and Doom and I've never lifted it. How do you people manage that?

I don't lift or not very often in gaming, I play at pretty high sensitivity I find that leaving my DPI somewhere between 4k-5k makes it so I don't have to adjust anything in most games. Essentially I rarely move my mouse more than 2 inches in one direction, the only exception comes with certain mounted weapons in ArmA which turn ridiculously slow. But I'm also a dirty heathen and don't play games like UT and Doom....

It's not that heavy. I had mine with all the weights in it.

Yeah, I don't think they sell them anymore. But in case people are wondering about aluminum pads, this one works pretty good.

I don't think about it, I just lift it. I've loved heavy mice for ages. Without weights installed, it's about the same weight as the Corsair M90.

I have played ArmA II, and those mounted weapons could indeed use some grease, like the AA cannons (don't remember the name). I also play at high sensibilities with a 3.5-5.5k DPI so i don't move much either. Hell, even my "desktop" DPI is 2500, so i'm pretty much used to fast cursors.

I also have mine with all weights. I can explain lifting mouses like the DA or even anything wired and under 100g (as most wireless gain weight with the batteries), but not this mouse, or any other comparable ones.

Hmm, if my RAT ever breaks i might consider that one. I'll never use that many buttons but i have a fondness of heavy mouses as i tend to use them rather brusquely, and now even my DA's 3500 DPI seems insufficient now for gaming.

I'm using a steel series 9hd with my Mmo 7.is been working well for me so far. It's a hard plastic with a grippy underside. My mouse glides across it nicely. Also, it comes flat in the packaging which was a huge plus to me. The last razer pad I bought came rolled up and never fully flattened out, years down the road. Anyway the reviews said it holds up pretty well to abuse. The only minor issue I've noticed is that its relatively noisy especially if you're used to cloth mats. Doesn't bother me but I've seen this little detail make or break other people's purchases.

One thing is for sure, after listening to everyone here complain about the MMO, I'm pretty unlikely to ever purchase one...but then again, I'm a wireless kind of guy.
I'm still pi$$ed about the batteries on my RAT 9. I'll never purchase anything more from that company if I am forced to abandon my mouse just because I can't find batteries for it.

Just do as I did. Just bought another RAT 9 in second hand.

One day I was swapping battery, and drop the RAT on the table. It fell on the pinkie side, so, it brooked the plastic chassis, where the pinkie rest screws. When that happens, the only thing to do is to exchange the plastic part, that goes around the mouse. So I needed another RAT.

Just bought a 2nd hand's on eBay. I now have 4 battery's, and spare parts.

I have thought about that, but you don't know what condition those batteries are in before you purchase them. They could be at only 25% life left, and you wouldn't know it until you got them.

If I am forced to, I might have no other choice. However, if Madcatz would just step up and make the batteries available to purchase, this wouldn't be an issue.

Every store that sells the RAT 9 should also have spare batteries for sale.
