Around ~$35 USD on GMarket. Really brings to light the overpriced nature of Zowie mice.
Purchased the White Version BUT too lazy to break it out of it's box, when I was last in my home town for a visit.

One of these days I need to stop by and break open a lot of boxes that were received, which are now clogging one room of the house.

Only bought it due to looking like a Zowie Model using a 3389 sensor, nothing else.

Apparently there is a pad on the stems to aid with clicking. Clicks can't be worse than the Revel I had to overmod to get clicks feeling passable.

Tempting to buy though. I've been on an import spree.

Sometimes companies like this are brands of a factory, you know, like Dare-U is a brand of Togran, Motospeed is a brand of Mototech, etc.

These brands usually exist as the default branding of their products, and as a kind of showcase. Usually, whatever they have in their brand can be ordered ODM. But there isn't anything stopping them from making a brand and just selling it for themselves. Maybe its not a factory, its just that it could be, because it'd be quite easy for them.

Anyway it depends on what someone thinks is a risk, some people would think little of spending $100k on making a mouse brand, if they thought it would be popular enough, and its easy to make a clone, because in this case all you'd have to do is get an FM and an EC, then just send it to a designer and tell them to make an EC design with the same holes as the FM. Because the mice already exist, its a lot easier than trying to come up with something new. Whether it's good or not depends on the designer and the person who owns the brands experience.

senileoldman Looks really nice, but I think it's a bit far fetched. The structural integrity of the mouse would be severily affected if they actually put that many holes on the sides.
