It's one of the best Razer mice imo since the inception of the Deathadder. Though not for me, I don't like how the front flares outwards.
Not sure what you mean. It looks and feels pretty straight to me. Not like the DA's right side curve out at the front which made it unusable to me.
Looking at the RJN video, I see he says it flairs. I don't think that's accurate, but rather it indents at the middle.
I notice his reviews have adopted some of the characteristics of mine
High level competitive gamer (CS 1.6).
In my opinion any "gaming" mouse pad over $10 is a rip off unless you want to spend money on pure aesthetics. The $8 Supermat is better and cheaper than any "gaming" mousepad I've used. Zeus Gear XL is a good alternative.
I will not answer PMs that could/should be asked in threads.
I even have the mouse in a box here lol. It's just Razer its design, they over exaggerate the front, etc. Whereas FK, Sensei, Model O, ... after the indent in the middle they only flare outward a tiny bit.
My main issue with this £150 mouse is the rubber on the sides wearing. Too much of a weak link for such a premium priced mouse.
That should be a non-issue as the sides are injection molded and not simply glued on. Not comparable to anything you might have experienced using the infamous Steelseries Rival or other mice with bad side grip implementation.
You will have a hard time to get them off even if you would try by using excessive force.
