Mamba Elite


General Thoughts

I've always preferred the Mamba over the DeathAdder because of the shape, but the DeathAdder always had the better sensor. Thankfully no more! They have the same top optical sensor. So now the Mamba, with its extra features and gorgeous lighting go above the DeathAdder in the Top 40. The most important reason is the shape though, because it's a flattened out version of the DeathAdder, making it more suitable to more people and generally more comfortable (DeathAdder curves are usually a bit too extreme). Still not a perfect mouse and the weight is more than most competitive players want these days, but given the popularity of the DeathAdder, the Mamba should replace it as the go-to mouse for many in my opinion. Well, it's what I would use anyway. It's up to you what you think is best, of course! Laser VS Optical is in the Lancehead Review: https://youtu.be/96ZF1OZEfS8
