That was my experience. Took a little while to get used to the extra weight compared to my old crap logitech mouse; but it was very well balanced. Definitely a lot easier to use, despite the weight.

I've read it doesn't work so well on dark surfaces and can be picky even with expensive mats.

lol anyone have any recommendations on a mouse mat for the rat 9. I've never needed a gaming mat so a bit baffled by the razer ones I've picked, look exactly the same. They are all dark so not sure that bodes well.
I'm using the Saitek Cyborg V5:

My RAT7 works just fine on this pad, tracking is very smooth and precise, even at high DPI. Dark colours aren't a problem, as long as the surface has good texture and reflectivity.

The only problem is that you have to keep both the RAT and the pad very clean. It doesn't take much dust to interfere with the sensor. I keep a microfiber cloth handy to brush them off when things start getting twitchy (usually only need to do this once or twice a week). That's why I prefer the hard surface, rather than the softer ones a lot of other pads use. Easier to keep clean.

Just an update after a few solid days of use of a RAT 9, my opinion hasn't changed I love the sniper button to death (of other people) it has already made a noticeable impact on my K/D ratio in BC2 but I still panic and get messed up using a traditional style mouse sometimes.
Now on to something that has been bothering me, the batteries. I understand there is a weight issue in heavy batteries and I understand this mouse probably draws much more power than the avg. mouse but less than 8hrs of gaming per charge isn't what I would have considered a compromise. I would have been happier with a heavier battery and less counter weights if I could at least get a few days out of a charge.
Don't let my mini rant detour you from going wireless they did make a point of giving you two rechargeable batteries and a charger but be prepared to change the battery at least once a day if you use it for more than 4hrs.
Just to put some perspective my previous Logitech M570 would run for 3+ months on a single AA battery and I have never ever turned it off.

Or M705, three years with two AA batteries, more than a year with one.

They should have done what Razer did and allow you to add or detach the cable.

the reason the batteries don't last long is because it uses A LOT more power than those ****ty logitech ones, it needs more to keep the response time and DPI at as good as wired

For your information. M705 is one of the best mouse ever built.

Is likely that when I will finally get a working RAT I will ebay it.

The good Ideas are not enough to balance the idiotic ergonomics, the power drain, the heavy weight, the absurd consumption and the premium price of the RAT 9

Get a RAT 7?? Wireless is probably not the best for competitive gaming in the first place.
