For the longest time, ROCCAT has been known for their right-handed ergonomic mice. The Burst Pro not only is ambidextrous, it also comes with a 70 g lightweight design, optical switches for the main buttons, a particularly flexible cable, high quality PTFE mouse feet, and PixArt's PMW3389 sensor.

Can anybody recommend a mouse for people with sweating hands, I mean not to be sweat as it is, some mouse that helps with reducing sweat hands while playing or using the mouse?

Get a coarse coating. The bog standard office mice also tend to have them.

Don't even start on the snake oil with built in fans and all that.

Thanks, I already do that but I thought by this age we had something proper, I mean a proper mouse to help with that, I guess we don't?

Ignoring the flawless sensor performance, that is a great mouse design; Conventional shape, flattish sides for claw/fingertip, and no-nonsense 5-button layout without any guff or cosmetic flair getting in the way.

100% function over form, if you ignore the RGB and are just talking about the shape and ergonomics. (As someone who hates the RGBLED plague I do have very low-level white backlight set on my keyboard and G303, I find it helpful in low-light)

Seeing these types of mice everywhere nowadays (with those cut outs under the palm). Just wandering... don't these gather dust fast? or is the case removal a simple task for a quick clean up?

These aren't cutouts I don't think, it's a clear or semi-transparent cover under the palm with a hex pattern underneath the clear layer that the RGB shines through.

ah, gotcha!

I think some of these types of mice are cut-outs. Seen a few reviews over the last couple of months where I recall something being said along the lines of "great for users with sweaty palms" (presumably a cut-out breather reference...maybe..)

Yes, some are "skeleton mice" with an open body. I wouldn't be surprised to hear that Roccat uses this Burst Pro chassis on another model that is, in fact, open-bodied too.

Now this is a great gaming mouse that can also do very technical artistry work while at the same time being light-weight! ROCCAT has a winner!

Great review BTW!

I have a minor feedback point for build quality. I've seen some reports from users and reviewers of the burst pro having bottom creaking and flex. Which happens when pushing the bottom plate of the mouse or slamming it down hard.

Although I understand that no one actively presses the bottom plate of their mouse when gaming, it would still be a nice extra thing to test when you check build quality related stuff. Just for the sake of completeness. ;)
