Over 18 years in Quake and more than 75 mouse reviews, and the Rival has always been a bit of a favourite for me. The problems were it being too big and too heavy. Well it’s still a bit too big for my hand, but the weight is now down to 92g. It also has an updated optical, which shouldn’t suffer from the tilt-slam spin outs.
There are some minor build quality concerns, but overall it’s quite good. I’m hoping my sample copies won’t be as good as the retail ones… time will tell. Definitely worthy of being in the Top 10, and it starts its life at #4.
Medium large, large mouse, be sure to check the hand size guide to get an idea of if it’s suited to you.
