I should be getting some samples quite soon. Just hoping they done everything I asked for. If they did, then the actual mouse itself will be finished. There will still be things to do, but at least I can show the mouse and send some out for reviewers to have a look at.

The thing is the project isn't really stuck, I mean its not like there's some problem that hasn't been solved, its simply that they take ages to adjust the tooling. They work on it at a snails pace, and there's not much I can do about it. That's been the problem for months now. I explain it more in this post.

They said it would be ready last week, so they aren't far away. I'm guessing this week it'll be ready, then they have to post the samples.

@bst Any chance you could publish the click latency figures for the astrum using bloodys software?

I'll do it when the new PCB comes, that'll be the final one so best one to test it on. Should be in a few days. Last time I tested it vs the Venator it was around 8-12ms faster, was surprising. Hope its still the same!

Hey I'm thinking about pre-ordering the luna grey one. Do you by any chance have some pictures of it other than the one on the site?

I should be getting all the colours soon, I've had to get the colours redone because the factory changed suppliers. I will post up photos as soon as I have them.

If you're curious about the shade of grey, it's very similar to Audi Nardo Grey, but more of a matte due to it being rubber.

They haven't told me how many prototypes yet, it should be at least 8, since there are 8 colours. I do have a list of reviewers, but I have been holding off contacting them yet, I'm waiting to see how many I get. If you have any reviewers who you'd like to see, let me know.

I still like RJN, I'm going to ignore the whole FM/Glorious etc thing I think the mouse is probably too large for him, but I do think he'll do a decent job reviewing it.
Also it'd be nice for these people to review it: menismyforte, justnvc, randomfrankp, there was also prosettings.net, for text based review. I kind of want to send a black knight to jayztwocents since he's making a dark knight build PC it'd go well with, I know he's not a mouse reviewer per se, but well I just like him, and its nice to hear from someone who isn't 'really' into mice if you know what I mean, just for another perspective. But idk if he'll be interested. In the same kind of vein, linus tech tips would be nice too. But idk if these larger youtubers like doing crowdfunded stuff until its actually done.

There are others who I'll send out to if I have enough.

They won't really be "proper" reviews, since they'll be pre-production mice, anything that they think should be changed, can be. It'd be nice for them to do a follow up on the final production mouse when it comes out.

Alright I'll wait for the photos before pre-ordering then, thanks for the info. You could also sell shapes that are in high demand on your website in the future (ie if enough people want grippy sides you could sell those on the site).

I think for the reviewers, Brandon Taylor and Badseed Tech would both be really good. Their reviews are good quality and I think they'd do a great job reviewing your mouse.
