I received my Mamba Hyperflux the day before yesterday and I wanted to give ya'll my first impressions. A little background on me. I'm an old tech who has been building PCs since 1998. My first online shooter addiction was Unreal Tournament back in 1999. So I've been playing online shooters for quite some time. Here is what I can tell you about the Mamba Hyperflux. Its light. Its responsive. It has lots of customization options. I feel that most gaming mice manufacturers make gaming mice specifically for shooter games, and then they make gaming mice for other types of games. The Mamba Hyperflux is the best of both worlds. It has the lightweight feel and agility of a mouse made for shooters, but it also has enough buttons that it can easily be used for MMOs, MOBAs, and RTS games. So think of this mouse as the best of both worlds. If you are a cross-genre gamer, you owe it to yourself to check out the Mamba Hyperflux. I use 800 dpi for most shooter games and I find that the Hyperflux Firefly mouse pad has more than enough space. I have yet to run out of room on the mouse pad. Those who use 400 dpi might require a larger surface. This is a very comfortable mouse. I have very large hands (22 cm long), and the Mamba Hyperflux is wide enough that I can easily use it with my fingertip grip. I'd also like to dispel the rumor that using the Mamba Hyperflux in the proximity of anything metal causes issues. I have a Corsair desk mat that I use because I hate the feel of glass under my skin. As you can see from this photo, I have a metal support rod running directly under the glass desktop and I have no issues with interference or tracking. All in all, I think its great. As Razer's flagship mouse, the Mamba Hyperflux has the quality and feel of a high end mouse. Yes, its expensive. But if you have large hands or you need more than just a basic button layout for gaming...you've gotta give the Mamba Hyperflux a try.
