Agreed I wish Logitech would make a normal size 50g mouse without holes to show everyone else that holes in shells are pointless and barely save any weight

I guarantee people would whine about bad build quality, because the buttons wiggle a bit.

Thank you. I am going to test this without side holes, as well as top and see the if their are any significant weight differences. I am aiming for a really lightweight mouse because that's always what I have preferred.

There will always be something that someone will complain about you can't please everyone - from what I've noticed the holes do provide a weight reduction while also cooling my hand during gaming sessions which is an added perk for me. With the standard shells my hand tend to sweat quite a bit. If the community here highly disliked the holes and wanted them removed I would obviously do just that. Either way my goal is to actually fund this project via preorders or starting an indiegogo campaign I'm just hoping their is some sort of demand for this type of mouse. If not at least I've tried.

Pretty much, plus the 3 contacts switch hardware based bouncing reduction. The problem with click delays is mostly from crappy firmware adding unnecessary delays instead of doing it proper.

The shapes... not interested. Too tiny meant for small hands and claw grip. Plus it may get into issues with who ever you copy the shape from: Logitech, BenQ, ...

Hexagonal while looking "cool" is not the most structurally stiff or breaking resistant. Plus if the material is thick then what weight saving really is there compared to a thin solid wall material.

Dunno how much a "die" to manufacture the shape costs but it certainly isn't cheap. Most of these projects often go the route of DIY and 3D print instead.

Hard to tell from only rendered pictures how stiff and resistant it will be, one has to hold and use it to know.

Good to see something light finally targeted for peoples with smaller hands and shorter grip styles. I'm signed up if the hardware reach a proper level in quality control (including the scroll wheel). Is hot swap able switches a possibility here?

I'm used to clear my hardware and I sweat a lot too so holes are very interesting to me, unfortunately everything released so far (G Model O..) is still too big.
Reinforcing the shell in few spots by covering the holes could help preserve its integrity.

Please don't give up on the idea, there are similar peoples looking for replacement of their old g100s, Ninox aurora & co without trading dimensions. (not even mentioning girls gamers who tend to have shorter hands too)
