Talon720 Even if they are using the Japanese microswitches which do feel good they are still gonna have the same issue as every other mouse out there concerning debounce and double click, unless of course they used optical switches. I would want ducky to try to make a mouse with their pbt shell still but light id think a pbt shell could benefit from having holes like some others. Personally, Id like to see optical switches on the mouse I know they wouldn't be the first to do it, but at least one of the few. The benefits of optical switches getting rid of debounce/double click issues plus low latency seems like a win. An actual competitive combining optical switches weight at least under 100g top sensor would get more hype than a lcd screen. I could be wrong but i know a4 tech bloody mice sorta fit this mold but I haven't heard the greatest things about them. Heres to hoping that maybe they will take their head out of where ever they have it and actually try.

Elrick The ONLY 3 main concerns for any mouse user are these;

Ducky Secret 2's Micro Switch uses Japanese-made Omron Switch with more than 50 million micro-motions.  

The ALPS encoder used.
  
Upgraded Pixart PMW3389 optical sensor provides accurate control and good touching feeling wheel with Maximum 16000DPI.

That are the ONLY issues that give us a potentially Great Mouse to play with. Also having all over PBT shell is another winner here.

This shall be another Great Model released to those that appreciate Quality and Finish.

-1nf1n1ty- I thought there wasnt going to be an LCD screen...Well, I guess its best to wait and see what happens, but this isn't looking too great to me. Maybe they can surprise me?

-1nf1n1ty- I'm not hype for it, but I really do think it looks cool. Hoping for the best, I'll probably get one down the line. I guess it will be ready by computex 2019?

Hopefully this one will be good out of the box because you can rest assured that they will never put out a firmware update once it's in the wild.


Can you tell I'm a little bitter about the Secret/Secret M?
I've been using a tape modded Secret M for 3 months now.

You should tape mod it. LoD is the same as my GPro.

I LOVE their shape and their high quality Omrons and Alps Scroll Wheel, so it isn't a BAD mouse by any means but it isn't a 'Gaming Device' at all.

The PBT shell is still being used by me and I am refusing to get rid of it, simply because it's the best OFFICE mouse yet in my collection.
Totally agreed. The PBT shell is amazing on the secret/m and the shape is so comfortable for me. Honestly the only issues I have are the sensor issue (which is pretty big) and the cable comes out of the mouse at an odd angle and drags on the mousepad about 2" in front of the mouse. I have 3 of them and all of them do it in the same spot. Kinda weird.

Hopefully the ergonomics feel the same with the 2, because in that regard, they are up there with zowie. Quality wise (sensor implementation aside) they blow zowie out of the water.
