    Cant wait for this to be added to the zSilver catalog. The DA Essential is a good option but this is even better at 50 dollars.

    Hyping what turns out to be just the generic versions of existing products?

    I thought we were getting a new Viper or Death Adder. Sad!

    That's some cool refresh of your devices catalog.

    Can't wait for a new Naga or something equivalent.
    Please make a MMO mouse (10+ buttons) without all under the thumb.

    This is really cool, reading the comparison list between this and the regular Basilisk is what helped me decide between a 2nd quartz pink Lancehead or the quartz pink Basilisk to try it out. I went with the Basilisk, we shall see how it goes! (not this mouse specifically, but the comparisons really did help, plus this specific version wasn't pink. lol)

    Something is telling me that this may be my next mouse. As for the size that's my concern I have bigger hands, I wear XL gloves and they can be snug. Anyone with this have an opinion on how the size would be for my larger hands. Is this a smaller mouse, standard or of the larger form mouse. I can do ok with a normal sized mouse but can't keep the smaller ones under control, LOL they tend to fly across the room.

    • 1 dpi button, instead of 2
    • different grip style (IMO looks better, than in original Basilisk)
    • different sensor (probably an Avago s3988 sensor, instead of Pixart PMW3389)
    • no Chroma in scroll wheel
    • no internal memory for storing configuration

    I don't know why but just looking at the mouse, I feel as the grip will be good..

    So this one has a paddle. On the original Basilisk, it was called a clutch, right? Is it the same thing, or is there different functionality? I couldn't really tell from the video.
