Get an AAA battery + an adapter, and the weight is already lower. I'm pretty sure if there would be a way to get the weight significantly lower without doubling the price they would have gone that route.
The only thing I really don't understand is the 10M rated buttons... Why? Why not go with the 50M or even the 20M variant?

I'm still using a very old Microsoft IntelliEye Mouse for years and those switches inside it are very old Omrons and they were never rated past 1 million.

So if it lasts till 2018 and still works perfectly, why are you worried about 10 million presses for a single switch?

There is a lot more to worry about besides how long the switch will last, like where it was made and with what internal components where used?

Most importantly having a real small sized mouse with a decent sensor (avoiding using anything with the idiot word of 'Gaming') that can be used by youngsters, should be every company's priority.

If the sensor lasts long enough with support via their LGS system, then this should be a really nice input device to own and use.

Because actually not having a wire is still better than a super flexible one? Paracord was great and all in the past, but considering the current wireless tech doesn't feel any different than a wired mouse, I gladly look forward to any new wireless mice assuming the weight/balance is kept in check. No one will be using paracord cables, or any cables for that matter, within the next few years seeing as weight is getting lower and lower with every new wireless mouse made.

And you get worse buttons, downgraded sensor, heavier mouse, and the need to replace battery.
Sorry I would take a paracord G pro over this crap any day for gaming.

Nice to see logitech is now KILLING another G series by reusing the shell from the 100 series ie. g103/gpro .
G403 is not a successor the the g400/g402 shape wise at all and they got rid of the 600 series by using the 403 shell for the 603, pure stupid

Placed my order for the G305 White version. I've always wanted a wireless G Pro. Wished they flatten the sides a bit similar to the G303, but the sides of the G Pro was never a big problem for me.

Also going to use the Energizer Lithium AA Batteries since they are lighter than normal AA batteries. Around 18g compared to the regular 23g AA battery. Should bring the G305 to around 89-91lbs. That weight for a wireless mouse with an amazing sensor is crazy.

One thing I've noticed about the mouse is that the mouse skates look slightly different compared to the G Pro. They look a bit longer in length on the G305. Will install G Pro Hyperglides right away once I get the mouse. From the pics of the G305, it looks like the Intellimouse mouse 3.0 Hyperglides may actually fit. Will also test that out. The 3.0 Hyperglides were too long to fit into the mouse feet sockets on the G Pro.

RJN's review is up. Confirmed 89g with li-ion. Crazy. Ordering as soon as it's on Amazon.

I don't care if it is wireless. Cord doesn't hinder my play much. It's just the GPRO shape I can't get used to.

I really wish I could replace the battery cover/back of the mouse to have the ZA12 hump.
