    Tt eSPORTS, the leading expert in professional e-Sports gaming peripherals, is releasing a refresh to their original SAPHIRA gaming mouse; This time in colors of Combat White, Blazing Red, and Metallic Yellow. The coating of the mouse body on SAPHIRA Combat White, Blazing Red, and Metallic Yellow is a glossy surface one, different from the matte finish of the original SAPHIRA. Recognizing that gamers' preferences are diverse, users who prefer a different color or a glossy surface mouse body can now rejoice with the 3 new additions to the SAPHIRA gaming mouse line up.

    The SAPHIRA gaming mouse was designed in collaboration with famous professional StarCraft 2 player Aleksey "White-Ra" Krupnyk. Featuring a 3500 DPI optical sensor, configurable weight system, and red LED lighting on the scroll wheel and battle dragon logo, the SAPHIRA gaming mouse is amazing for RTS/FPS games. Additionally, with its onboard memory users can store a total of 25 macros across 5 profiles, each with 5 programmable buttons.

    in my experience the glossy-surface mouse are not ideal to hold on to - no grip
     
    Crunching for Team TPU

    Sweat fest, but durable and easy to clean. Rubber is more grippy but difficult to clean and sooner or later it'll be eroded.

    I think the best kind of material is in Razer Deathadder black edition. It use non glossy plastic layered with thin rubber. After years, it's still good to grip although the rubber layer wears off already.

    That depends how fast you wear away the rubberized coating on a non glossy mouse. Also what you like the feel of more.

    Between my MX500 and 518 I noticed the 518 tended to collect more dead skin on the glossy part. Dunno why but it just did. But I couldn't tell the difference in the grip. I did finally swap the 500's shell onto the 518's body but it was mostly due to the dead skin issue and I figured I'd do it when I was swapping the 500's weight to the 518.
