Does anyone own a Basilisk yet? If so, can you shed some light on how well it works?

    Hello! I am planning on getting this mouse, possibly around Cyber Monday, or whatever the cyber event is called right around Black Friday. But I am wondering a couple of things concerning both the sensor and the various features of the mouse.

    To start, going to say that I will be using this mainly for Overwatch, and that I will be getting a Gigantus and a Mouse Bungee with it(if anyone can give details on how well it works with those two items, I would greatly appreciate it!).
    My edpi, or mouse dpi multiplied by the ingame sensitivity, is 4800, so relatively low dpi gaming. I have included this in the event that whoever has this mouse knows how it performs with low-dpi gaming and can describe how well it does.

    My first question, is how comfortable is the mouse? I use a palm grip, but wondering how comfortable it is overall for extended periods of using it, for example, 2hr sessions.

    Second question.. Does the mouse perform well with 400/800/1200/1600 dpi? Does it seem to perform better on one setting than the others?

    Question 2.5.. Does it warp/skip any/stop tracking? I occasionally have this problem with my Naga Epic Chroma, although it never happens in Overwatch, with the exception of rarely the tracking will fail.

    Third question.. How well does it perform on the Gigantus or similar mouse pads? Does it track well on that type of surface?

    Fourth question, Have you had any problems with the rubber grips?

    5th Question: how are the buttons on the left side of the mouse? Does the thumb clutch work well? Are the side buttons hard to press mid-combat?

    Thank you for your time in reading this and thanks in advance for taking the time to reply to some of my questions!

    I don't have a Basilisk so I can't give a review, but I have to say you're one of the top current writers on the forums.

    Thanks I think! A lot of questions I have had concerning mice have been answered here, and I've had a few thoughts I've wanted to put down here and there, but where do you see the top writers list?

    There is no list per se. Not that I'm aware of anyway. But I have to have fire in my belly to type out that much. Other then that, I like to keep it simple! :smile_:

    Plus I've seen the other threads you wrote.

    Ahh, would be cool to have a list like that sometime in the future though! :big_grin_:
