This looks lit, beta xx on that WMOish shape from bottom coming with 3360 and most importantly option for a shell that has no holes for side buttons on it is all a man could ask for. Just drop the ugly transformer logo and a possible DPI button and make it 70g like Aurora and there might be finally a reason to use something else than WMO.

So again, an aurora/G1 like shape with a too high sensor position for fingertip or hybrid grip styles. Can't say im surprised. Unfortunate in this case, as i like the idea with the different shapes. Nothing wrong with that sensor position on well... wmo style shapes.

That's one of the very few things Logitech got right with the g pro. (unlike g100s or g3)

Sorry, its hard to please everyone frown.gif

But, if the weight comes out very low, then I might be able to add an adjustable sensor position smile.gif

I rather have hinged main buttons over adjustable sensor position. Personally, I would place the sensor 1-2mm from the scroll wheel to save weight and give more radius for those who touch the rear of the mouse with their palms.

What material on the sides?

Really wanted to like Venator but I can't. Even when not playing, that textured glossy plastic is on the brink of slipping out of my hand.

This is something you really should focus on. If not now, then later. You would fill a gap here, because no mouse manufacturer has done this before. IMO sensor position is much more important than all this DPI and pollingrate talking. But to be fair, for people who aim with their whole arm and don't use their wrist much its not that much of a deal, so yes. you can't please everyone if you don't want to make the mouse too expensive. Its already a good step to let people use different shapes with your PCB. You still have my support.

Why no old school Logi clone shapes that nobody seems to create? There are a ton of classic Logitech shapes people are constantly asking for. The shapes presented just look like every other shape already available on the market from other companies.
