@PureNick

Are you able to tell if the clicking for this one feels like the G9,G9x?

The G9 requires very little pressure to click and also has a very solid clicking surface so no matter if you click at the very edge or at the middle it feels the same.. the Razer Mamba/Lachesis/DA requires almost double the force to press, Imperator requires tons more!

That's a good question.

Ugh. I was expecting it to be slightly smaller. They are using the same shell as one of Gigabyte's mice. I don't have small hands, but it's made for much larger hands in mind.
The scroll wheel is the same too. It's really gummy and after a while it doesn't scroll smoothly. Dirt builds up really quickly. The rubber grips will also peel after while from the sweat. It also feels really cheap.

From a preliminary stand point it's not looking very good. Hopefully the sensor makes up for it. Though when they had the $5 coupon I did grab some feet and made cut outs for the Gigabyte mouse. Tracked much better. The extra mm higher was surprising.

If they made slight adjustments to shell and scroll wheel it should do well.

I have no comment on the scrolls wheel (cause i just dunno anything about it =(), but the rubberized coating looks 100% different than anything on the gigabyte clone that was built using the same body that puretrak is using. The rubberized parts looks alot more like what I have on my EC2, which is still looking 100% after 7 months of every day use.

I think we need to see this mouse in person first before we chalk it up as another copy that failed. I agree with you that this sensor might make up for any shortcomings with the body though, I cant wait to try it out.

The sensor (if working) AND the low mass (if true) would make up for it, but for $60.00 I don't know.

Totally agree. They are using just using the molds after all. The materials could be different.

We just have to wait and see. The weight system is a big plus for those who use it though.

Me personally I like my mice light and nimble. Since I am a low DPI user.

sound like we have the same style

low dpi and light weight.

Pre-orders still estimated for mid may ?

Hello,

I'm assuming the mouse you're speaking of is the GIGABYTE GM-M6880? While there are similarities to this model, I assure you that the Valor is different in many, many ways. To start with your concern of the size, the Valor is actually a bit smaller than the M6880 (M6880: 127x74.93x41.91mm | Valor: 117x75x45mm) which should help cater to your needs much more than your experience with the M6880.

The mouse wheel itself is that of a gummy-like material but we feel this is the most comfortable as well as functional. As I once stated before, we're using an extremely durable encoder unit from Soundwell. The durability of the these encoders exceed industry standards even for gaming.

In regards to our shell, it is triple-coated to ensure maximum durability and surface life. We understand the concern gamers usually have with the durability of rubber coatings on their mice so this was an item we wanted to ensure would stay solid for the long term.

The rubber grips on the left and right sides are applied with extremely durable 3M glue... very similar to the glue we use for the backing of our PerfectGlide mouse feet. Again, very durable.

Down to the smallest detail, we are ensuring that every part that makes up the Valor is of the best quality. This is one of the main reasons why we feel confident offering an out-of-the box 3 year warranty.

Very good question.

The contact points were made wider to ensure that no matter where you place pressure on the mouse, you receive even feedback from plunger button on the switch.

You will have a light, solid-click feel with the Valor.

Oh wow I didn't know we had a Puretrak rep.

Thanks for clearing up all these issues. I know you guys would improve on that Gigabyte mouse. The Gigabyte is like a $20 retail "gaming" mouse after all. Seems like the Valor will be a great mouse for the price then.
