General Thoughts

This may not be obvious at first because of all the bits cut out of the shell, but this is actually a Logitech G305/G203 shape with the hump moved further back and sides slightly widened. The problem is while the Logitech design has the buttons kept away from the sides, the Cougar design has the buttons all the way to the edge and then they've reduced the height of the wall so that the button can fit. This means that where you might usually put your ring finger, there is only about 1.2cm of room. I don't have huge hands but even I struggle to get a comfortable grip because of that. Claw grip does make it slightly easier, but still not by much.

 

The cable is a bit stiff compared to the super flexible cables we have now, but it's not bad, it's kind of like the Razer and old Xtrfy cable, but in a bungee it's fine. The weight is slightly off what they say, as usual, because many factories weigh without the cable or that little plastic bit at the front. Pretty cool mouse over all, played ok with it, but it's not better than its competition overall so doesn't rank high enough to get a recommendation. Worth a look if you want something like the Logitech egg shape, but why you'd choose this over something like a Logitech G203 ... weight? I'd still prefer the G203. They both have the bulging sides I don't really like, so while you get a few improvements on the sensor, polling rate, cable and weight, the better shape on the G203 will still put it ahead of this one in my opinion.
