No coupon codes at this stage, Brandon Taylor said on his Twitch stream 4 days ago that he has asked x-raypad if they can give him a coupon code for his followers and that he'd let us know in a video or stream.

Haven't heard anything yet but I wouldn't count on it, x-raypad seem pretty firm on their prices, they even have an FAQ section that's about justifying why the stuff they sell out of China is kind of expensive lol. Something to do with handling fees, having to re-package items, PayPal fees etc.

If BT does provide a coupon code I'll post it in here as soon as I know.

Just a quick update with a little bit of new information.

First of all, I haven't seen any new posts from Brandon Taylor in regards to a discount code for the mouse, so it's not looking like there will be one at this stage.

The release of the Skoll has also been delayed a little bit, being pushed back to the 30th of July. Only 5 days later than the last given date so no biggie.

A couple more video reviews have popped up on YouTube too.

In this one at 5:32 you can get a decent idea of what the included paracord cable is like compared to the Ascended Cord on the Model O as well as a custom paracord. It looks better than the cable on the Model O and incredibly impressive for a stock cable, although I still don't know why they give you two of them (one on the mouse, one loose in the box).


In this next video, while it's in Japanese, I discovered that the mouse seems to come with not only replacement feet, but additional/optional feet too. I'm not quite sure the reason why, but you'll see them at 3:50. They go in between the left and right feet and the top and bottom. He appears to have a production sample too, looking at the graphics and writing underneath the mouse, which the beta samples sent to other reviewers didn't have. This might explain why his came with the optional feet and the others didn't.


x-raypad also released a video showing the alpha sample of the upcoming G-Wolves Hati ambidextrous mouse. It's 60g and basically looks like a copy of the Model O or Finalmouse Ultralight, and it has a PMW3389. Not sure if this one will be super popular given we already have the Model O and the difference in weight is only 7g at this point, but I thought it was worth posting anyway. Here's the link:


I'll post any more new information as I find it.

Secondary System Specs: Fractal Design Define S2 - ROG Maximus X Code - Watercooled Intel 8700k (5Ghz) - Watercooled Strix GTX 1080Ti OC - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 3200Mhz CL16 16GB - Seasonic X-1050W PSU - Intel 600P NVME SSD

G-Wolves Skoll

I ordered one and got it today. Love the mouse itself. the chord has a capacitor or something about 4" from the end of the usb cable and when i tried to change it out with a custom paraflex cable it didnt turn on so thats a bummer. also i cant seem to find a driver i can actually download to customize the rgb. Other than that I love this thing. Its super solid and a decent price point considering the other ultralight mouses. Hope this helps.

Another review popped up today, this time from a more well known YouTuber from here in Australia.

I don't hate the EC shape but the travel on the clicks and the travel in the wide buttons make it a no go for me. If this fixes both of those, which it looks like it will, this will be a winner for me

The Skoll has Omron D2CF-F-K(50M) switches for the primary buttons which are I think the same ones found in the GPW? As opposed to the Huano switches found in most Zowie mice. Not sure what switches are in the side buttons but from what I've heard in some of the reviews, the reviewers seem to like them better then the EC.

Nice! Yeah I can't wait to try it out as well. The release date got pushed back again the other day until 1 August. Hopefully it doesn't keep getting pushed back, since the delivery time is already going to be at least 3 weeks for me lol
