I may still like the size and shape. How is it size-wise compared to Glorious Model O? The Kana is smaller than the Model O, and it quite good for me.

Just received mine today. Love the shape, weight and feel, I'm surprised this wasn't released worldwide.

Only one small issue with my copy and that's sensor lens rattle. When I shake the mouse, or even move it side to side quickly on my desk I can hear something rattling inside. When I hold the sensor lens in place with my finger and shake it, the rattle is gone.

Anyone else got this too? Got any tips to fix it?

Never mind the above comment, I opened up the mouse and fixed the sensor lens rattle and installed a paracord while I was at it. Had to re-use the stock feet until my tiger arcs arrive.

If anyone else has the lens rattle issue, the way I fixed it was to open up the mouse, remove the PCB and use a very small amount of non-permanent glue (similar to clear silicone adhesive) on the left right and top sides of the lens to hold it to the base of the mouse.

You'll see it in the following pictures. I took quite a few to show the internals of the mouse for anyone interested. Also got a pic of the wire arrangement for anyone who wants to paracord theirs.

Had a go with the mouse in game. Feels good, tracks well. I'd say this is probably my favorite mouse from SteelSeries current lineup in terms of shape, weight, and value. Even the clicks feel really good to me, however when I had the mouse opened up I fixed the slight amount of vertical free-play on M1, and I think that's really contributed to making it feel and sound good.

The one thing that bothers me is the LOD. It's higher than any other mouse I own and non-adjustable. I've had to use the tape trick to bring it down to where I feel comfortable.

If SteelSeries re-released this mouse with the same weight, but with a higher end sensor (Truemove3, Truemove3+ or Truemove Pro) I think it would do well in the worldwide market. I wonder what it would be called, maybe Rival 116 lol

Right side doesn't bother you? I find it digs into my pinky side in my 1-3-1 grip. If they had let it smooth out the higher up the side you do (like the Revel for example), I think this would be a better mouse for me.

Nah not really, my fingers drag on the mouse pad a little bit but I don't find it uncomfortable. I have 19.5x9cm hands (not including thumb) but that said, I don't use 1-3-1 grip.
