Gladius III

General Thoughts

ASUS continue to improve their mice, now with a nice new flexible braided cable. There are a lot of features, but I think the Gladius shape, especially the current refined version, isn't actually going to be good for aim. The button height is too high. It is comfortable though, so if you're after a palm grip mouse for about 18-19cm hands, then this can be a good option.

If ASUS go back to something like a Sica shape or the Evolve and get the weight lower, there's no reason they can't get up high on my list too. In the bump test (for latency) the numbers are extremely low, I'm assuming that's because the click strength is really light or maybe they've done something with the latency on the mice, not sure. Either way, very good performance.
