Shape and Dimensions

Shape



The shape of the Sabre RGB Pro Wireless is quite unusual in more ways than one. For one, the raised left side typically characterizing right-handed ergonomic designs is almost entirely absent. Instead, when looked at from the back, the top curve appears more reminiscent of an ambidextrous design, employing a markedly rounded and almost fully symmetrical hump. Across its length, the hump is centered and tapers down gradually towards both ends. This makes the right and left sides very similar in terms of height, only differentiated by the former curving inward, whereas the latter curves outward. There is more to say about the curve on the left side. On most right-handed ergonomic designs, said curve extends across the entire vertical plane. Not so on the Sabre RGB Pro Wireless, where the bottom is wider, creating a slight slant towards the top, which may feel alien when placing the thumb towards the bottom. Additionally, simply picking the mouse up is complicated by this design choice, too. Neither front nor back flare out much, which is another design trait usually seen on ambidextrous mice. The main buttons feature subtle comfort grooves. Conceptually, the approach of the Sabre RGB Pro Wireless is not unlike that of the VAXEE ZYGEN NP-01, melding right-handed ergonomic and ambidextrous design elements together, though the shapes themselves are distinctly different.

Another point worth further scrutiny is the sensor position. Relative to one's thumb, the sensor on the Sabre RGB Pro is placed more towards the front. Compared to the more common centered position, a more forward sensor allows for a wider wrist motion arc. At the same time, those coming from a mouse with a more centered sensor may need some time to fully adjust.


As for grip styles, I'd say the Sabre RGB Pro Wireless is mostly suited for palm and claw grip. It is a large and wide mouse with a moderately pronounced hump, which makes it suitable for larger hands. For reference, my hands are 19 cm long and 10 cm wide, and I found the Sabre RGB Pro Wireless fairly comfortable in claw grip.



Dimensions

This table includes the dimensions of the Corsair Sabre RGB Pro Wireless and several other right-handed ergonomic mice. "Front height" denotes the distance between the base and main buttons. Measurements with two decimals have been taken with a caliper, while those with one decimal have been taken with a ruler.
