Hey sandywind, I don't have the DA V2 as it's not yet available in Australia but I do have the DA Elite which should be very close in size and shape. I just went and dug up my DAE to compare the two. I've also had some more time to compare the Model D and the Skoll so I'll give a couple more thoughts on that too.

Model D vs Deathadder Elite

The DAE is wider at the grip than the Model D, measuring at the base it's about 2-3mm wider, this is noticeable when comparing them in the hand. However I personally prefer the Model D's shape, much like the EC series it's based on it is a shape that fits pretty snugly in your hand, it's more "rounded" where as the DAE has more of a "sharper" hump if that makes sense. On a side note the scroll wheel and the clicks on the Model D are much nicer all round as well.

I've taken some pics of the Model D and the DAE which I've attached below.

Model D vs Skoll

Now that I've had more time switching between these two, I can comment a bit more on the shapes. As stated before they are extremely close in shape and size, with the Model D being ever so slightly longer. However something about the Skoll has felt slightly larger to me, at first I couldn't put my finger on it as I know the Model D is longer and I measured the grip width of both at the base, and it's the same. But upon close inspection the Skoll looks wider at the top. I think this comes down to the downward curve on the right side of the Model D being different to the Skoll. It's not a massive difference but I thought it was worth noting, as I know a few of us (myself included) were originally expecting the Model D to be larger than the Skoll. Other than that they do feel very similar in hand.

The Pook I was given a DHL tracking and it came via USPS. The same thing happens fairly often for me with Amazon, but for them I get a UPS tracking number and it ends up being delivered by USPS.

vagrant Well that was weird. Glorious got back to me with a link to the DHL tracking showing that the shipment was delayed. And I ended up getting it delivered today by USPS. But neither DHL or USPS show any tracking activity between Illinois to Iowa.

No clue what happened and it seems like others on reddit are having similar issues, but I got it and that's all that matters lol.

Ahhh man that sucks :/

Where'd you order yours? Hopefully they will get another one out to you ASAP.
Glorious. About 19 seconds after the page went live lol.

I'm using a Model O now so it's not like I'm rubbing sticks together to move my cursor or anything.

So that's great.

I've been told the bigger the D, the better.

But I've also been told it's not the size of the mouse; it's the flick of the wrist.
