Lots of exciting mouse developments these days and lots of mouse talk on the forum so lets see whether we can consolidate it a little.

Lets perhaps kick things off with a kind of poll (No, I won't make a proper one).

Which upcoming or freshly released mouse are you most exited about (might edit links in later)? Also feel free to tell me which any of them don't excite you at all. Or why you don't care about any or whatever. It's perpetual discussion guys, let's get things rolling.

1. Glorious Model O

2. Glorious Model O-

3. CoolerMaster MM710

4. CoolerMaster MM711

5. Finalmouse Ultralight 2

6. G-Wolves Sköll

7. Roccat Kain Aimo 120

8. Roccat Kain Aimo 100

9. Logitech G502 Lightspeed

10. End Game Gear XM1

11. Whatever Razer is cooking up (teased by RocketJumpNinja)

12. Something I haven't heard of?

13. What a fitting spot for it, do we still care about the Finalmouse Air58?

14. Logitech MX518 refresh

Discuss people! Discuss!

Dammit. We have sorted this our already. The heavier the mouse the better it makes you! Weight is like the new RGB

So for me personally the one out of that list I most want is the Roccat Kain 120. It's not gonna be the lightest but Roccat traditionally have amazing shapes (for me at least). And the idea of more visceral click also sounds super appealing.

However I can only say that because I already have the Glorious Model O, otherwise it would grab top spot.

Most of the others look too shallow for me and eventhough the Kain also makes this mistake, I'm not a fan of shell buttons.

In that case we apparently out to find out how bad we can get cuz the race is on for the lightest mouse, not the heaviest (which is easily won by the CoolerMaster MM830).

Is Roccat support back in SA?
Best mouse I have used ever was the Roccat Kone XTD

As a kid I was very happy with the Roccat Kave 5.1 headset! They were a decent set, akin to an up and coming Huawei of those days

Thankfully there's import options. My gray Kone Aimo is already imported since SA only had black and white.

No you!
If you want to discuss audio this is the wrong thread.

As often as there's money for a fresh new one that looks interesting.
Nei... I like to get familiar and comfy and get that muscle memory well formed around the shape and weight.

Roccat has pulled out of sa , I love my cm master mouse s but willing to try new ones as when the first hype of final mouse started a couple of months ago it was simply amazing to watch

There many here who are avid gamers hearing their journeys makes me smile

Sucks not to have the support though.

Since Roccat is not on my list as a resort, I will stick to my Zowie, love it to bits

I prefer finding a new one that matches and surpasses the old. The hunt goes on for a mouse I'm as happy with as I was with my Stinger. (Cyber Snipa trash, MSI also had it callled it Interceptor I think, but the shape was soooo good)

Now if only they would hurry up getting the Divina models to SA. They've already got decently coloured ones again, no more pink and baby blue, but still no SA love.

Ah, the excitement of a new toy, unstained and yet to be tainted...

I want Skoll or Model O. I shall dream away.
Why dream when Evetech's pricing (for Model O mice) is stupid reasonable?
