I'm pretty sold on the G9x. Not as many features as that thing, but comfortable and I can change the size and weight plus change the sensitivity on the fly.

I'd like a mouse that reshapes itself to my specific grip and places buttons in the area most ergonomic for my particular hand.

It looks like someone took my G9, hit it with a hammer, then gave it to the local primary school to glue back together again..

I like the idea of being able to change the weight. Though I'll stick with my Razer mouse for now.

Also did this really deserve an entry in the Guinness world record book? -_-
PLAYGUUU AAHHHH!

Customisation is good, but there's a big difference between using default settings and the level of customisation you can find on most mice. Most brand mice offer enough customisation.

It's also not the most important thing. I really like my Razer Lacheis because the glide on it is the best I've found. After using the Lacheis the G9 felt like a paperweight.

I'll take a mouse reknowned for accuracy, reliability and glide over customisation any day.

Interesting because I had the same mouse and didn't do any of that, and it broke.

Interesting because I have it and mines bulletproof too :P 3 years of abuse and its still magic, love it.

A few years back, we couldn't even adjust sensitivity on the fly... now i can't imagine playing my games (BC2 and MWLL in particular) without it. A few years back, if you don't like the mouse weight then you gotta buy a different one end of story... A few years even further back, some of you uses mouse and other hardware on DEFAULT setting and never changed it till they use someone else's mouse and declare it the best **** ever because it has been tailored to handle better.

Some of us don't change settings ever, and try to adapt to the hardware or software instead, others like me says **** that and customize it to what we like to the best extent.

too much variable to think about? not the mouse for you then... but after dealing with saitek sticks in particular i can appreciate customizability after experiencing how much difference a good hand adjustment makes, takes a while to do it but god damn screw those idiots that chose not to and use default.

never tried on the fly sensitivity switching, can't imagine myself liking it though. All I want is the distance traveled to translate to the degrees turned identically in every game I play, with any weapon (without using the sights). If I've got that that's all I need.

The reason why those 2 games in specific benefit from the on the fly sensitivity is because the vehicles do not handle the same way as the infantry part.

none the less, there is a damn good reason why the feature is becoming relatively common these days on gaming mice... if you are fine with your mouse, then that's perfectly A ok, but if they give the option for more then i don't see why the hell not.

You are fine with yours need not translate to "NO ONE ELSE WILL EVER NEED IT BECAUSE I DON'T NEED IT".

technically mouse skates been around for ages along with special mouse pad to fix the glide friction feel just right, mouse internal weight are not rare these days either and for a good reason.

so really, neither of them are a problem that customization can't handle.

accuracy and reliability, now those r different story (though frankly since most gaming mice uses similar grade infrared or laser sensor they are not exactly different)

G5 Rev2. Still pwning suckers after 4 Years. I don't see any reason to change it until it breaks on me.

lol, sorry if I came across like that, didn't mean to :P

using it for hopping into vehicles is interesting, i'd always heard of people using a different sensitivity for sniping and stuff and that sounded like a terrible idea to me.

Really? I lower my sensitivity a touch for sniping in games like BF:BC2, helps with the long distance head shots as you are able to adjust for shots with small movements of your crosshair. For running and gunning I have the higher sensitivity so I can turn and get to my target faster; I generally will be aiming for the upper torso as opposed to the head specifically.

Customising the glide of the mouse skates is impossible to a degree because it's dependent on the profile of the casing.

The G9 sits far too low for my liking, meaning it drags on the thick cloth mats I use to keep my hand comfortable. Adding even more teflon won't fix this. Nor would switching pads, as I hate smoother pads because it leads to hand pain over a prolonged period.

The Logitech G series of mice also suffer from a problem where they fit into the palm rather than the fingertips, which seems to reduce my accuracy.

From the looks of the rat mouse or whatever it's called it would also suffer from these problems. The casing looks extremely top heavy and far too clunky. I can't see any way to change the casing to actually be comfortable.
