Thinkway CROAD M325 (3325 LMO Clone)

I can't really tell if the sensor position is better than fkmini stuff. It looks like it might be

I took a screen shot of when he flipped the mouse around. Dunno where fingertippers prefer the sensor generally, but looks to be in the middle and lines up with his thumb.

looks pretty similar/same as fkmini2 :^(

it's still another "chance" to maybe not having weird sensor skipping issues etc in this shape, tho

Exactly.

All about selling differing shapes of mice with the 3325 sensor.

Think that the 3325 has now been accepted as the most featured sensor on many Chinese store fronts. The 3050 is slowly being depleted from the supply chain, which should of occurred years ago.

Yay. Forum's eating posts again.

72g. There's also an 18g weight inside.

Looks cheap. However, beggars can't be choosers with niche stuff like this.

got one about a day ago, short review:

I didn't download the software at all, just out of box.

No angle snapping. No sensor skipping yet (tested on g-sr-se and very lightly on artisan zero and otsu). have tried to get it to spin-out with the "moving mouse while placing it onto the pad" thing more than a few times and only got it to happen once. I play with ~70cm/360 all the way down to ~139cm/360 for zoom sens stuff and haven't had it spin out in-game at all. lift-off is as expected a little higher than other stuff since it's a 3325. obviously no z-axis bug as far as I can tell. I think 800 is the lowest default step, only measured it a couple of times and I think it was ~835-845. 500hz by default, seems stable. sensor position actually feels ok

cable is the standard stiff rubber

omron switches are supposedly the extra cheap 5m even tho they're white top, replaced with what I am pretty sure are 20m omegashrug. click actuation force is maybe a little bit stiffer than g303, but they feel good with very little both pre and post-travel. unfortunately only did bump test for click latency, but both left and right are only like ~2.8-4.8ms(more likely on the lower end of that) behind a g303 that was lifted off the pad running on 1000hz + I think newest firmware.
EDIT: just tested against a ventus R running on 1000hz and was still only a few ms behind, so kinda unsure of what the click latency actually is. It might be the actuation force of g303 being lower that caused similar results vs ventus R and g303. tested both after replacing the switches, but it was pretty similar before replacing vs the g303 as well.

idk if the feet are made of something different than what I'm used to or if it's just the small size/thickness, but it feels pretty grippy (no plastic sheet or whatever on the feet to peel off, either). idk what feet would be best to replace them with in the future and I don't know if I dislike the grippy feeling yet. leaning towards liking it I think

scroll wheel is that yucky rubber "wrap" around the plastic so idk how long it'll last, unsure of the encoder that's being used but it isn't super loose for individual steps and I don't ever accidentally scroll. Does not shift side to side, is in place firmly. middle button is pretty stiff

haven't confirmed weight with a scale, but pretty sure it actually is 54g without the weight. I think I got my ventus R down to sub 60g after desoldering the scroll wheel and they feel like they're in the same weight class.

NO RATTLES/LENS WOBBLES ON MY UNIT. if I press on the sides in a very specific way towards the back I can get the top to kinda "rise" a little bit and widen the crack between the bottom and top shell, but that's me trying to be picky and doesn't ever happen in-game. feels pretty alright, I don't feel like it'll crumble in my hand.

EDIT: the top shell was like that because the screw was just barely not in all the way heh

is actually top tier, probably new main

bad lighting + low res pic yeehaw

Sweet! Where’d you buy yours from? I’m in Australia and eBay shipping cost is quite expensive.

The mouse I use is the Nkey G007 Mini. I’ve modded it to 44grams. I love it. But now I’m looking at this Croad M325 and considering getting it.

The Nkey uses a 3336 sensor which feels flawless to me. Would it be pointless to give this a go? The only thing that interests me with the Croad is the potential of getting it lighter than the Nkey.

Opinions would be appreciated 🙂

I found a seller on gmarket that shipped internationally. you might have to try digging around to find one that ships to australia, shipping is a bit of an oof for sure since it's from korea :^)

I haven't used the g007, but I got this instead because of the shape/width and the clicks. how did you manage to get it down to 44g? holes?

Thanks man. Yeah I checked out Gmarket, but it worked out for me on eBay in the end. I’m pretty stoked!

I didn’t cut holes into my G007; I went a bit crazier and cut large bits of plastic and then coated the entire mouse in carbon fibre vinyl wrap to make it look nicer & hide all the cutouts. It surprisingly worked out really well. I’ve had a lot of practice on previous mice before. It really is a great mouse, but I’ve also had some issues with it.
