I thought my RAT7 was bad at first, uncomfortable and painful. After I spent a couple of weeks tweaking the various adjustments to fit my hand, and adjusting my hand position to treat it as a 3-button instead of a 2-button like i'm used to, I found it to be one of the most comfortable pointing devices I've ever owned (beaten only by the Logitech Trackman MarbleFX).

The only issue I still have is the weight; but I'm getting used to that.

yea i know what u mean. with a few adjustments to the body and the wrist rest we could have both ergonomics and a custom fit. first thing is the wrist rest, which isnt a wrist rest, more like a palm rest. this should be elevated at the left side. the front part of the mouse could also be raised in the middle to form more of a hump. lastly i think the palm rest should be elongated a bit so i doesnt feel like youve got your hand on a ball. ohhh yea. madcatz.....some numnuts forgot to make the thumb rest textured like the optional pinky rest.gripping this mouse isnt as natural as it should be. and it should be a bit bigger. accidental buttons cliks are happening...wouldnt hurt to make it a bit bigger in the fin also.

i hope version 2 makes this a better thing.

Hi. I am interested in purchasing the R.A.T. 7 for myself but I have a few questions.

How is it for people with small hands? My hands aren't very small, just small. From what I can gather, some people with small hands just adjust it to suit their needs but I'm reading a lot of reviews with people saying it was too big or too wide for them. Can anyone give me a heads up before I buy it? I was really excited about this but I will have no use for it if it is too big for me or if I have to play palm-grip (I am a claw-grip or fingertip-grip, depending on mouse/mouse pad).

Also, is the Sniper feature for real or gimmicky? Is the button hard to reach while in a heated FPS match, like I've read a few places? That was the biggest appeal for me on this besides being able to design it exactly for my hand.

If this mouse is not right for me I will buy a G9X. Please inform me. Thank you. rolleyes.gif

^ IMO, R.A.T. 7 should be fine for people with smaller hands since you can adjust the mouse extensively. I used to own a G9 and have no problem adjusting to the R.A.T. 7 (I'm a claw-grip also).

As for that Sniper feature, to me, it's just a gimmick. I've never used the darn thing and like you said, it is too far to reach comfortably unless you have large hands.

Good luck with whichever you choose and maybe you should just buy both and return the one you don't like.

I've just recently purchased a rat7 and I'm having an problems with the cursor/pointer automatically moving around on the screen when the mouse is still - basically the cursor/pointer will slowly move down/up/sideways on the screen until it hits the edge. Even when using it, it will do this and you have to fight against the direction it is moving.

I initially thought it might have been the mouse pad, so I purchased a SteelSeries QCK+ and it is still doing it?

Does this mouse only work with very specific mouse pads or is this a problem with the sensor or the software?

Any help appreciated, because when it does sit still, it is an awesome mouse.

^ I've had a similar issue on my R.A.T. 7 before (cursor would move erratically). What I found was the laser had some dust on it. I took Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol then cleaned the laser. After that the RAT 7 worked fine so you might wanna try cleaning the laser to see what happens.

Also this was suggested by a Mad Catz rep when I first emailed him about this particular problem.

I've done that. Also tried blowing it and it still does it. So it has to be something else surely?

Try it with a different mouse pad first and if it's still doing it then yours probably has bad sensors or something. PTE are known to have issues.

Wow, he just bought the mouse and it's already giving him problems. I thought they had come out with a new line that had fixed those issues? Bad apple? redface.gif
