Is it reliable?

I had one of the earlier models of this mouse. Can't remember which one exactly. I loved everything about it. Customisation, adjustability, looks.
Sadly it packed up shortly after the warranty ended. I paid a lot of money for it and was extremely happy with my purchase until it died. Should have lasted much longer for the price.
I'm on my second roccat tyon. 1st one didn't die but I had some double clicking. Common issue with this model. Got 2nd one for 29.99 on Black Friday. I wish it was a little bit smaller.

I've had 2 of these older models, both of them were really nice in shape, but the internal hardware was crap, esp the mouse switches which for both of mine went bad and one click ended up in being a double click, which is impossible to work with.

older one

I have the RAT 7 MMO, it's a great mouse but started double clicking; I'd buy the same again if it was still sold.

I'm still on a rat7, about 6 years old now. Nothing I've seen or been able to hold has come close to fitting my hand and awkward grip to replace it with. I had been considering an m65 elite recently as the rat has taken quite a beating the last few months and it's starting to kick off. If I can get one of these in the same matt black I'm sold. I just couldn't do that red, either visually or from my sweaty sweaty hands.

Like. Weighty, excellent sensor and specs. Red? I'll be looking at the screen and my hand will be covering it. Lighting? Ditto.

I'm looking forward to checking this one out. For years I used the Rat7, it was a good fit for my large hands. Regrettably, there is still no sign of the R.A.T 8+ Adv anywhere here in Toronto Canada.
