Well, since more weight requires more force, it's easier to control the acceleration if the mouse is heavier. Atleast it works for me, but i can agree that a better solution would be to buy a better mousepad. :pQuote:

Also, i have tried to use 0 weights in my mouse many times, and everytime i have to add the weights back in. I just can't keep my aim smooth, especially if i have to move my mouse faster.
That's... just... odd. Have you tried using something lighter for more than a week? Even though I hate the Kana with a passion I still have to admit that the fact that it weighs so little is giving me pretty much perfect control. Theoretically, having a mouse that weighs nothing would give you as much control over your mouse movement as you have control over your hand.
where is the option for medium / in-between ?
I can't stand heavy mice. If I was rich I would make my own mouse with state of the art materials. It would be something like a wmo or kinzu but weigh like 40g, and the weight distribution inside the mouse would be even. The cord would be as light as possible.
It is very frustrating that mice manufacturers don't even try to reduce the weight of the mouse. It's like ~75g is the best they can do without making the mouse so tiny that grip becomes a problem, like the salmosa.
I would even consider BAM for the feet/pad as it is the only known material (afaik) with less friction than teflon.
omg, its embarrassing but this is what i did to my mouse
light mouse ftw, /thread
I'm using a cheap generic mouse (made by Mikomi) just so I can get the lightest mouse and chord possible. I had to laugh when I realized how heavy the WMO is and the way its chord keeps dragging at first. I have small fingers so this mouse suits me perfectly, I wouldn't consider a mobile mouse though.
