The heavier mouses generally have less sensitivity when compared to the ones which are lighter as with a lighter mouse, the users can have more control over it and increased speed. Here we will list out various mouses that are superlight but not that light because being too light isn't any good either.
The Glorious Model O is one of the lightest gaming mice around, which weighs only 67grams, and it comes with a honeycomb pattern design that makes the mice easy to control and gives a lot of breathability to the users. It has six buttons, and all of these buttons are easily programmable by using the companies software. MMO's aren't the strong suit for this mouse, but it shines on FPS games, and you can tell this if you are a big fan of those E-sports matches, especially CSGO, the team who won season 7 used the model O.
The games which are made on older game engines generally have a lower polling rate than those games which are newer and made on today's game engines, and the Model O can easily adapt to these games by lowering its polling rate to as lower as 125Hz and up to a maximum rate of 1000Hz.
A great feature of these mice is that the users can rapidly click away from its switches, which are Omron and highly durable in games that require you to be extra fast and click as many times as possible within few seconds.
The CPI ( Counts per inch and refers to the sensitivity of the mouse ) of the mouse is great and has a wide range. Still, a downside to this is that the users can only adjust the mouse's sensitivity in increments of 100, although the CPI set by default is pretty nice and consistent.
The model O comes with customizable RBG lighting; these are located on the scroll wheel, on each side of the mouse, and inside the mouse, and the honeycomb pattern of the mouse makes it all the better when the mouse RBG light comes on and shines. The RGB is available in four beautiful colours: Glossy Black, Matte White, Glossy White, and Matte Black.
COMFORT AND BUILD QUALITY :
Considering how light the mouse is, it is extremely sturdy and feels pretty solid and doesn't have any squeaky or loose parts. The scrolling wheel feels weird when its wheel doesn't move, but the rubber on it does, causing delays. The mouse has a total number of 6 buttons, including two side buttons which, in my opinion, is adequate enough for many gamers. The buttons can be customized, and users can save their profiles on its software.
The bottom part of the mouse where its feet are also good quality as they made up of PTFE and give the users a very smooth gliding experience, making the overall comfortability of the mouse very good.
CONS AND DISADVANTAGES :
Overall the mouse is great, and its low latency and light body serve the users well. While the mouse is perfect for users with average or bigger hand sizes, we will recommend users who have smaller hands to go for its O- instead of having a smaller design and functions just like this one.
The price of this model is somewhere between $127.
The Superlight from Logitech is a great wireless gaming mouse that can be used for different office purposes; even though it doesn't have the honeycomb design you will see here, it is still one of the lightest mouses we have seen and tried out. It stays in the premium category as the brand's products are highly used by many E-sports players and is a fan favorite, and its performance speaks for it; the users that can go the distance and have the budget should consider and give it a go.
The mouse's weight is around 60g by default configuration, which is almost 20g less than G pro wireless. This reduced weight results from not having any buttons on its right side and losing its truly ambidextrous design.
It also doesn't have the RGB like you would see in G pro wireless and uses a new scroll wheel.
The CPI offered by the mouse is pretty great, as well as it has a minimum CPI of 100 and a maximum of 25600 CPI and can be easily adjusted by increments of 50. The sensor used in this is optical (LED) and performs well whether you move it slow or fast. The users can choose from four polling rates which are 125Hz being the lowest, 250Hz, 500Hz and a maximum of 1000Hz.
The side buttons on the left-hand side of the mouse can be remapped according to the user's needs along with its scroll wheel using the Logitech G-Hub software.
The mouse has very low latency, and the users shouldn't feel any difference using it wirelessly.
It comes with a charging cable which is a little bit grippy because of its rubber texture, but it shouldn't be much of a bother. Its super high-performance speed and low latency isn't the only thing which separates it from its competitors, but also it has a superior PTFE mouse foot that offers a lot more coverage to the users. The things that are included and come with the mouse inside the box are :
COMFORT AND BUILD QUALITY :
It is a superlight mouse, so the users can be sure of having great comfort and control over the mouse, although the users with smaller hands might feel a bit left out as the front side of the mouse can be a bit difficult for them to reach.
The build quality of the mouse is very good as it is made out of lightweight plastic, which will feel light and extra thin but at the same time sturdy enough.
The mouse's ergonomic design is not too great, but it shouldn't make much of a difference to the users as it is comfortable enough around the palms and fits perfectly to almost all hand sizes.
CONS AND DISADVANTAGES :
The mouse is priced around $150, which is $20 more than G pro wireless costs but with almost all the same features and even lighter, which can justify being $20 worth more. So, the fans of Logitech will surely be happy using and giving this a try.
The ninja air 58 is probably the lightest mouse here among all other mouses weighing just 58g and is one of the best performing mice. It comes with only two side buttons on the left side, so only the right-handed users will be able to use those buttons properly. The mouse size is a bit big, and so you might think small-handed users might not feel good, but it isn't the case here as it is still pretty comfortable for small-handed users as well.
The lightness of the mouse will make a big difference in your play style if your switching from those normal heavy mouses to this one as you will be able to have more control, and with its sleek feet, you will be able to drag your mouse very easily.
The shape of the mouse is ambidextrous style and will be suitable for all grip style; it has holes through its body that allow more breathability and is also one reason it's so lightweight. The mouse cord is great as it's highly flexible and is made out of a light braid.
The sensor used in the mouse is Pixart PMW3360 and is one of the best sensors out there, and its polling rate is set to 500Hz. This might be a bit of a downer for some users expecting to have a 1000Hz sensor, but trust me, this isn't any less than that, and you won't notice any difference in its response time.
The DPI of the mouse are :
All of these things and its lightweight combined make it a top tier gaming mouse.
BUILD QUALITY AND COMFORT :
The mouse's top surface is made out of superlight plastic, while the side and bottom part are of more hard black plastic, which is durable enough to protect the mouse in case it falls over a few times. The mouse uses Omron switches for its button, and they are highly durable and feel great too. There are no distracting creeks or any sign of flexing when you grip the mouse, and it feels just as much comfort.
The buttons feel good to use and provide decent feedback, and so does the scroll wheel, but it's a bit more light and could have used a bit more of an upgrade and more definition.
CONS AND DISADVANTAGES :
The Air 58 is a simple plug and play gaming mouse. You don't need anything else, but if you want, you can download Dream Machines DM1 Pro S software, which works for air 58. Using this, the users can bump up their polling rate to 1000Hz and change its sensitivity. Still, users need to be careful when using this software as it might void the warranty of the mouse since Finalmouse doesn't recommend users to use any software to change its original settings.
The price of the mouse is around $90, but it's incredibly hard to get nowadays.
We all know what the brand Razer is and what it specializes in, and they certainly did a great job with this mouse for those who have the budget and can afford its price tag. The viper ultimate performs exceptionally well with FPS games, with great click-latency whether it's being used wirelessly or wired, and therefore is used by many professional E-sports players. Its lightspeed makes it even better and allows for smoother movement and control for the users. It comes with two buttons on each side, and all of its buttons are customizable.
The mouse performs exceptionally well in most FPS shooter games, and its performance is greatly enhanced with a good gaming monitor. It features eight customizable buttons: two macro buttons on each side, two main left and right clickers, and a resolution-switching button on the underside of the mouse and a scroll wheel.
It's not the lightest mouses around, but it certainly is a light gaming mouse. The users won't notice any difference as it's well balanced and easily movable across surfaces. It weighs around 74g. The users can buy a dock for the mouse for an extra $20, which in my opinion, looks cool with the mouse on top of it, completing the wireless experience, and it connects to your pc with a USB and the mouse via copper contacts. The dock magnetically holds the mouse in a tilted upright position. It has a custom enabled RGB ring around the base of the dock as well.
The sensors of the Viper are Focus+ which use Optical (LED) and has a good CPI range. The users can adjust their polling rate to 125Hz, 500Hz, or 1000Hz. The liftoff distance isn't too bad either. It doesn't track your movement when your positioning the mouse, and all of these can be adjusted and customized using the software Razer Synapse 3.
It has a minimum CPI of 100 and a maximum of 20000 CPI with an adjustable rate of 50 CPI.
The cable length of the mouse is 1.8m and is pretty good and feels a lot like that of Glorious Model O's cable.
The things that come along with the mouse and inside the box are :
BUILD QUALITY AND COMFORT :
The Viper is made almost completely out of plastic and has no holes in its body like other Honeycomb designed mouses. Its plastic design doesn't make it feel weak or fragile, but it's highly durable and won't flex or break off easily; one problem being faced by some users is that of squeaky noise when you press and hold down the left and right buttons down, it might be an issue because of its optical switches. Still, it is not a big concern.
The true ambidextrous design having two side buttons on each side of the mouse make it good and comfortable being used by both left and right-handed users. It doesn't have a high back which can be good for fingertip grip but won't be perfect for users with bigger hands using a palm grip.
There is only one lighting element on the mouse, and that is its logo.
CONS AND DISADVANTAGES :
The Viper ultimate is a perfect fit for professional and passionate gamers who don't want to make even seconds second. We know these seconds matter a lot. With this and its high performance and lowest latency rates, you will surely perform to your fullest.
I would recommend the users to go for its full version, which comes with the charging dock as well, and it costs somewhere around $150.
The G502 Hero, in my opinion, is probably one of the best-looking gaming mice out there right now, with incredible features at an affordable price. It is wired and has a lot of programmable buttons with good CPI and ultra-low latency. It's a little bit heavy compared to other gaming mouses, but the users can make it lighter as it comes with five removable weights. Although it was released a few years ago, this mouse just won't quit and still performs exceptionally well and is also one of the best selling gaming mouses loved by most gamers.
The G502 Hero is a big mouse, and therefore, I won't recommend this to users who have small hands. The weight of the mouse is around 120g, making it a good solid all-around mouse; the wheel of the G502 is made from metal which feels extraordinary good and has a smooth, satisfying feeling to it while scrolling and after using it will be hard to go back to any other mouse wheel which doesn't have this. The users can press the wheel to enable smooth scrolling, and you can even press it left or right for even more button inputs which not every mouse has these days.
Even though the mouse's weight is quite big, it never feels bad or drags the users down while you move it at fast speeds while gaming.
The sensor technology used in the mouse is Optical (LED) of the model HERO25K having a minimum CPI of 100 and a maximum of 25600 CPI in increments of 50 CPI. The polling rate is 1000Hz, which is quite good as well.
It has a total number of 12 buttons, of which three buttons are on the side of the mouse, and every button is easily programmable with the exception of a wheel scroll. It has a CPI switching button, which makes it easier for users to switch their profiles while gaming.
The RBG lighting of the mouse is present for its CPI indicators and the Logitech logo.
The overall build quality of G502 Hero is great and is made up of plastic which is dense, and its primary buttons and grips have a matte black plastic finish. The matte black plastic does a good job of hiding hand dust and other particles. The buttons on the left side of the mouse are easily misclicked as they are very easy to click, and they are by default used to switch CPI. This can be easily fixed by going on to the G-Hub software and rebinding the keys functions.
The mouse design is a good fit for right-hand users and is rather large, so users with small hands won't feel too comfortable using it.
The users who love the brand Logitech will surely love the G502 Hero for its high-speed performance despite being heavy and ultra-low latency and its batmobile type look. If you compare it to the Razer Basilisk V2, I would suggest going for the latter as it is lighter and doesn't create as much drag as G502 Hero does and is also more comfortable. The price for this model is around $80.
The Razer Basilisk V2 is a sure upgrade from its previous model as this one comes with improved side buttons and a customizable scroll wheel; its low click latency and high performance make it perfect for FPS games. The mouse fits perfectly well with the palm and the claw grip but isn't that perfect for users with smaller hands as some buttons like the sniper button might be a bit hard to reach. The mouse weighs somewhere around 96g and is not lightweight, but it still performs perfectly despite being a bit heavy and doesn't create any drag when moving the mouse at a fast or normal speed.
The Basilisk V2 is wired only, and its cable is lightweight and highly flexible too. The sensor model of the mouse is Focus+ and has a minimum CPI of 100 and a maximum of 20000 CPI which can be saved on a profile and switched between easily using the CPI switch.
These features can be set and changed using the Razer Synapse 3 software along with controlling the polling rate and can be set to 125, 500, or 1000 MHz. The Basilisk has 11 programmable buttons on it, which can also be programmed using the software and not only this, its scroll wheel functions like going up and down can also be customized. The button by which you can easily switch the profile of the mouse is located on the bottom side of the mouse, and there are two buttons located on top by which you can either lower or raise the mouse's CPI. The sniper button on the mouse is magnetic and can be removed easily if the users don't want it.
It comes with Razer chroma RGB, which has two lighting zones, one being the scroll wheel. The second is its logo, and you can customize its colours according to your preference. A cool additional feature is that if the users have other Razer gadgets, their RGB can be matched and be in sync with all their Razer devices.
The mouse is built for right-handed users and targets especially claw and palm grips. The basilisk V2 is slightly shorter than the DeathAdder V2. The former has gentler textures, whereas the latter has more rough textures and all this comes down to the users taste and which one he or she likes to use; there no right or wrong choice here.
The feet of the V2 glide well and are PTFE along with the plastic from which most of the mouse is build.
The overall design of the mouse is pretty good and ergonomic, which makes it very comfortable to use. Its buttons are easy to reach for all the normal and big handed users, but users with small hands might not feel the same. There is a thumb finger rest on the side of the mouse as well.
Overall the basilisk V2 triumphs over the DeathAdder V2 and the Logitech G502 Hero, but it all comes down to the user's preferences. After all, the customer is the king. The price for Basilisk is set around $80.
