Glorious PC Gaming Race just released their first gaming mouse, which is definitely among the best mice you can currently get. Ambidextrous, extremely lightweight, with a high-end sensor, perfect skates and cable—all this at a friendly price tag. This is the first product ever, to get three awards from TPU!

67 grams won't nearly tire out your hand as much as a mouse twice as heavy.
I'm sorry... really.. but if 68 grams tires your arm - or even 115g - then its probably time to stop playing games and join a damn gym?

Playing games for long durations is also not an excuse for needing a lighter mouse; if anything, it sounds like the younger generation need a HEAVIER mouse so they can build some wrist strength... :shadedshu:


On a more 'real' note, I just don't get the hype around this mouse.

There is quite a noticeable difference flicking around a 60gm mouse VS a 120gm mouse in a fast paced FPS. I highly doubt anyone really "tires" from a heavier mouse, but when something is half the weight its hard not to notice.

thanks for the review, i just ordered the mouse from their website based on the review, since i saw it has the same dimensions as the Zowie FK2 which i have, but seems that quality is better.
on the Zowie the shell is very stiff and the wheel squeeks so bad and is also very stiff.

suit up - or better suit the mouse up.
You asked for it )))


How dirty are your hands.....
Look at my G5 teardown in a sig, and then imagine if it had holes. Even if you are some hygiene freak (or illegal citizen of Gattaca), and you wash your hands after every CS/BF/QC or whatever match, you still get sweat and skin flakes on it.

I'm sorry... really.. but if 68 grams tires your arm - or even 115g - then its probably time to stop playing games and join a damn gym?
Back in my days gaming mice[mouses] already came with weights, so you wouldn't need to... :roll:

Weight doesn't much matter to me because I have my mouse set to 800dpi. I buy mice for comfort only. At 800dpi, I can mold a potato to perfectly fit my hand and likely wouldn't notice the difference.

That's also almost a 15 year old mouse that looks like it wasn't well kept to begin with. Nice rebuild though.

It looks like that because it was actually (and actively) used. Not kept in a vacuum-sealed glass jar in a museum. I even wash my oversized mousepads twice a year, and never eat anywhere near my PCs.

Not dirty but realistic about human skin and how it works for everyone.

This isn't even about sweat, its about all the bits you lose and all the dust flying around everywhere. No matter what you do, you will be opening this mouse to dust it out and you will want to wash the shell from time to time. Every time you do this is creating more wear and reducing mouse longevity.

I don't know about you, but that to me is a clear case of too much effort versus the benefit of '68g'.

Regardless, seems like a very solid mouse otherwise. I'll take a closed shell one any day with a slightly higher weight on it though.

There is quite a noticeable difference flicking around a 60gm mouse VS a 120gm mouse in a fast paced FPS. I highly doubt anyone really "tires" from a heavier mouse, but when something is half the weight its hard not to notice.
Absolutely true. I went from a Zowie FK1 to a (currently) Logi G502 and that's very comparable in weight difference.

Yes, higher weight is different. But it usually is also found on different mice. This G502 is more of a palm gripper really, and for those ,weight is beneficial up to a point. That said I would not have been bothered with -20g on this mouse, 120g is on the heavy side. But it never impaired gameplay for me. Its really just what you're used to, and you can get used to weight as well.

For claw grippers low weight is beneficial because of the more sweeping movements you tend to make with them. But even then, there is absolutely no need to fuss about a 80g or 90g mouse. I would have bought this Model O if it didn't have the holes to get to 68g... Its just a very, very stupid kind of tradeoff and not one that is aimed at longevity. That alone is a dealbreaker, I don't buy mice to replace them every year.

I could care less about the weight. I think I will try one when Amazon has them in stock. Maybe it will help with my sweaty hands during long gaming sessions. At $50 for a nice gaming mouse it's hard to say no...

The G502 is 44.99 on Amazon is the best mouse I have ever owned. That said, I have been exclusively using the Logitech 5 series since 2003. It just fits my hand so nice.

Mmm, that's one sexy ass mouse.....

I'll probably just open the mouse and put a thin layer of padding to collect dust and what not to cover the holes undersides
