    I am not left handed myself, but I think it would be good if they bring the Naga and Deathadder back to a left hand edition, I have talked to many people online who are still using the older Razer mice from years ago that are left handed, even if it meant just having them sold on the Razer Store and a couple other retailers, at least then it would give the option to people.

    To be honest i dont think its a good idea to use the mouse with left hand even if you are left handed. Thats why they dont make anymore left-handed mouses. I know many people that are left handed but are using the mouse with right hand. It makes no difference. I am not left-handed but i should be couse i was forced from my stupid teacher when i was on elementary school to be right-handed but even if i was left handed i think i would use mouse with right hand. Learning to play with both hands its easy compared with wrighting and doing other staff. Computers are not desinged for right-handers but to use the mouse with right hand so i think you could give it a try.

    I'm left-handed and never used a mouse with the left hand because like any tool, you just learn to use it and get used to it, and most left-handers are used to be challenged by their tools and master them with no consideration for dominant hand like right-handed peeps.
    The keyboard is made for right-handed people, so having the mouse on the left hand and trying to play with the keyboard on the right hand would just be a nightmare.
    I can guess how it could be nice to have a mouse used by my left hand, I can nearly feel it if I think about it, but actually doing it and believing that I need it is completely different.

    That said, I could understand how some peeps would want more comfort, combine with a right hand orbweaver and operate to the best of their abilities.

    Tried it and hate using a right handed mouse. Not so much on the mouse front but having to use the keyboard with my left hand for movement feels entirely off and I don't feel nearly as dexterous. The 2014 Naga left handed was a massive game changer for me for usability. Was crushed when I couldn't find anymore in stock as I was looking to buy another to have around just in case they stopped being made since they are admittedly a niche market.

    Using the keyboard right handed has never really struck me as all that different, about the only odd use of it that I can think of is that I use the side of my right hand in order to hit the space bar, which can make me extra picky about how raised the keys are (although this new BlackWidow V2 thankfully fits pretty well). Although sometimes I just bind that action to the Naga anyway depending on the game.

    All it needs it practice. learning to use keyboard with the other hand is way easier imo than a mouse. I suggest you to practice a bit, keyboards and mouses is something are supposed to do with both hands so thats why they chosed to make right handed mouses. Dont give up

    Just don't forget that there are people out there who, for physical reasons, CANNOT use a right-handed mouse, and for whom a left-handed Naga, with all the programmable buttons, would be the only way that they can play video games.

    To tell people to learn to use a right-handed mouse, without considering whether or not it might be impossible for them, sounds a bit cold.

    I am talking about people with both hands factioning. You are right there are people that need mouses like naga to play videogames but dont forget that other companies make mice like naga for left handed so there alternatives for people that need mice like but other people that can use both hands dont actually spesific need mouse.

    Thing is though that was when I had a basic ambidextrous mouse. Never tried with a mmo style mouse like the Naga since the left handed version existed and I wasn't about to gamble my money away on thinking I would be able to adapt.

    Also now with the new keyboard it works way better for me to have my right hand on wasd since I'm able to use the side of my hand to access the spacebar and this frees my thumb up to access ctrl and the side macro keys on the BlackWidow which I use as modifiers in conjunction with Naga which has been great for binding those hard to reach abilities (looking at you f1-5 keys). To do the same with my left hand on wasd I would need to move my fingers off at least one or two of the movement keys. About the only thing that might improve my current setup would be if a Tartarus style keypad existed for use with your right hand, but I'm not about to get greedy in asking for absolutely everything to cater to left handed (niche) gamers (even more niche). I just hope that the Naga 2014 continues on in some fashion.

    Yeah my point is that a company like razer cant make models for a few users that have different habits ect, however there are other companies that focus especialy on stuff like dvorak keyboards pointball mice e.g razer will lose way much profit from making mice or keyboards for spesific people when most of people expect disabled can use same mouse. There are always things that some people would like their device to have, for example i would like to have a mouse button for my ring finger but most people would not like it.

    Really all I've got to say in this debate is they created a product that was well received by it's target audience, left handed mouse users either through disabilities or choice, but for no discernible reason the product seems to have disappeared while others like the DeathAdder still have their left handed version available. I'm also scratching my head on the profit point as I recall paying extra for the left handed model over the right so I would assume the company did their homework on what price they needed to put them at to run a profit.

    I would understand / hope it's because they're prepping up to announce a redesign of the 2014 Naga to the Trinity design, (also since getting that BlackWidow keyboard I'll admit the whole RGB thing has kind of grown on me, at least for peripherals). I've been unable to find a mouse for the left hand that comes even close to what the Naga offered. I'm concerned my options in the future will be to take a look at taking a huge step back to those ambidextrous or two thumb button design mice, or gamble with the few remaining third party sellers of the Naga that have upped their prices to ~$170 at this point. I'm mostly just kicking myself that I didn't grab an extra mouse when I had the chance when I had a brief scare of the mouse double clicking for a bit.

    Also in regards to the take my voice to twitter in the OP was that directed at a particular spot? Sorry up until this point I've never even bothered with twitter so when you mentioned to go to twitter I hastily made an account then spent way too much time trying to find where they were actually asking left handed users for feedback.

    Sorry about that - I thought that I had gone back and added the link already. First week back at work; apparently I missed it.

    Here it is.

    Another lefty here, and I love the fact that these guys make products which cater to our (relatively speaking) small demographic. For my part, I really don't mind if I have to pay a little bit more, if it means I get to do the things I want to do in comfort - for day to day, I do agree with some of the posts up here that yes, if possible, and a person is able to, do try to learn to use a mouse in your right hand, but when it comes down to gaming, I would prefer being able to comfortably smash my enemies into so much pixellated dust, thanks :smile_:

    After all, it's meant to be something we can all enjoy, so why not let everyone have a chance to have that same level of relaxation and comfort... Imagine, right-handed forumites, if all mice were left-handed, and we lived in a left-handed world... You'd be able to use a mouse, and many of you would probably get the hang of it really well, but for some, it just wouldn't feel natural, and you'd never be quite as chilled and comfortable as everyone else...

    honestly I just went through their customer service today about this mouse. I got my left handed naga from an ex and I have used it for years. It has made a world of difference to me as a competitive mmo player. I hadn't even realized it was discontinued until a friend of mine, whom was also left handed and looking for a solution, had taken my recommendation for your product and couldn't find it anywhere in stores. I searched everywhere for it and, as I said, found out from the wonderful people at your help desk that it is discontinued. I would dearly love it if you brought it back. As would my friend who was more than eager to purchase this product from you. And for those who have said its simply a tool and you should be able to manipulate it with either hand, I get that and to some degree I agree. However, just as a mouse is a tool so are a lot of other things. would you ask a surgeon to swap hands? how about a musician? a line cook? see where I'm going with this? While the use of a mouse may not be as important as the ability for a musician to play the guitar, or a chef to wield a knife, or a surgeon his scalpel its all relative and I think they would prefer to do it with their dominant hand. So in that regard I'd like to be able to play at the same level as I am used to without spending months of time relearning everything. Btw Razer is the only company who has bothered to attempt to put forth a 19 button left handed mouse of quality construction. If you can prove otherwise I'd love a link. Anyways that's my peace, and I hope to see a they lefty naga back before mine breaks ha. Peace.

    As far as I know, Razer are the only ones who created a left handed edition of an MMO mouse. My own experience has been that, at best, other manufacturers' nod to lefties is an ambidextrous model, and typically falls in the entry-level/my-first-gaming-mouse kind of category.

    That said, I do have a Lancehead TE, and it is an absolutely superb rodent in my opinion, and well worth considering as a replacement!

    What I figured based on my searches. My biggest problem is I've gotten so used to that 12 key number pad for my thumb. I use it for everything and at the moment my half busted left/right click are still worth using over losing that. Honestly it will prolly get to the point where I'll disassemble and try to fix it myself, fail, and then be forced to get something else lol. Wish they would continue making the left handed edition on a per order basis. I'd wait a couple months if I had to.

  20. As someone who can't physically use his right hand this mouse soon became one of the best items I ever bought. Just being able to compete with everyone else made gaming fun again. Unless anyone knows a good alternative then I guess it looks like my gaming days will soon be over... :frown_:
