Yea i got an email from them about it..... Yuck tbh. The boomslang was before my gaming career so it holds no sentimental value as it will for people like INS

Logically, you would think it would have to be a laser. I mean why the hell would you buy a ball based mouse in this day and age...Even if it were for nostalgia.

I'm not too keen on this one either. Still quite happy with my diamond back.

I spot a spelling mistake

I remember the first boomslang 1000's

I had one of the first ltd edition ones back when I was playing quake2. One of the wheels broke in the end tho

I don't think the shape of it is as good as the newer razer mice tho (diamondback etc)
