Hand Size Guide

These are not exact measurements, only use them as a rough guide:

  • Palm under 18.5cm / 7.3″
  • Claw 16-20cm / 6.3-7.9″
  • Fingertip 18-21cm / 7.1-8.3″

General Thoughts:

This mouse has two new interesting features, the clutch as the sniper button, which is the best in class so far, and the scroll wheel tensioning system, which might suit a lot of CS:GO players.

The shape is new for Razer and it might be their most comfortable yet. With a top optical sensor, Omron switches, durable materials and some extra features, it’s one of the best mice around.

However, while the shape is comfortable, it isn’t going to suit everyone, especially with the thumb rest, and its weight is about 109 grams. Most competitive FPS players seem to prefer mice under 100g.

As I mentioned in the review, the shape is very similar to the G502 from Logitech, so if you want that kind of mouse but a bit lighter and slightly more comfortable, I’d recommend giving this a look!
