    Re: Asus ROG Spatha

    Wish there were gaming mice (with the option of going wireless) suitable for people with smaller hands.

    Re: Asus ROG Spatha

    I wish those big end super quality companies would create a mouse that can last longer than 3 to 6 months for heavy use without the clicky buttons starting to double click on single click... it is a way bigger problem for us more heavy gamers... during the past 10 years I had to replace around 20... and yes I tried different brands and I have to say that Razer fail the most among the ones tried out... currently Roccat seem to be the most sturdy ones and lasting longer than 5 months before starting to malfunction....

    a) What QuorTek said about the buttons.
    b) I want to put my own AA batteries in my mouse so that I can just swap new ones in when the old ones run out.

    I can't remember the name of it now, but the last ASUS ROG mouse released around 12 months ago was designed with that in mind (albeit not wireless).

    AFAIK, ASUS are using replaceable omron switches in their ROG mice now.

    Re: Asus ROG Spatha

    You'd have to be a right spatha to pay that much for a mouse

    Re: Asus ROG Spatha

    Though maybe they'll release a "Sparta" mouse next and probably charge 300 for it?

    Agreed I find a lot of mice are too large for both my small hands and the way I grip the mouse, wish they could offer mice models in 2 sizes
