    so im spending my s1283 money on a new rat because the microshit one is at the end of its tour of duty to say the least :laugh:

    [​IMG]
    ^here it was a month back i was pissed at it then because it wouldn't shoot when i wanted it to, snapped some of the silver plastic off now... made it worse lol

    anyway i have a choice of two replacements; diamondback (3g) or a lachesis.
    im thinking ill go for the lachesis because the specs are better, larger and its only $20 more!

    what do ya'll think?

    I can't comment on either, never used a Razer mouse before lol. I can vouch for the G9 though, but it's probably not what you're looking for in terms of size and shape.

    From pictures I can see of those 2 Razer's, the Lachesis looks wider.

    Perhaps OCZ's new Dominatrix as an alternative?? Any reason why you're limited to those 2 Razer mice?

    thats what i thought about the lachesis! worth it for just $20 more!
    as for logitech mice, i have tried a g5 and g9 i think but both of them not long enough
    im limited to these two because there the ones i can get with free postage ( with out going logitech) + they do look just right for me particularly the lacesis

    Umart links don't work properly unless you right click on the item and open it in a new tab. Check out www.pccasegear.com.au I buy all my stuff from them and Umart. PC Case Gear has $13 overnight shipping!!! (They get a discount from AAE).

    lachesis and mosr razors seem to be tayored for both left and right handers which makes them, well not the most comfortable, for either.

    my habu has taken a pounding and tbh it the only mouse iv used i would buy again.

    I mean the link you posted dosn't work. To get a umart product (otherwise it just links to the main page) you have to open the item up in a seperate tab, otherwise its just contained within the main page and wont work.

    That listed to the mice section, just do the same thing with products :) I see it all the time where people post a link to a umart item and they dont do it properly, just leading back to the main page lol

    Don't overlook the OCZ Equalizer either. Cheap, and very good. It's a rebadged A4Tech X7.

    Email PC Case Gear and ask, they'll then probably get it in with their next shipment of OCZ gear. They get stuff in pretty quickly when you ask for it (speaking from experience). Or I can do it if you want, since I was thinking of getting one for my GF lol.

    I love the Diamondback as the side buttons are more on the side and not slightly under the mouse.


    When this one dies's i will replace it with the same or the one your talking about which is the newer version of mine as mine is about 3 years old now if not more..

    I find 99% of mice to small for my hands and the more expensive ones the mouse rises into my palm of my hand.
