    The Fnatic Clutch 2 is the latest gaming mouse from one of the world’s leaders in eSports. Fnatic was founded in 2004 and is best known for its championship League of Legends and Counter-Strike eSports teams. In the past few years Fnatic has begun supplying gear designed specifically for professional gamers. The Fnatic Clutch 2 is a right-handed high performance gaming mouse designed to deliver three key attributes: reliability, comfort and accuracy. It is ergonometric ally-designed to provide both control and comfort during long gaming sessions. The rather tall (43.4mm) central curve fits perfectly in your palm and the 65.7mm width will accommodate even very narrow hands. The very large Teflon pads on the base insure smooth, precise movements over any surface. It is ruggedly built with polycarbonate, ABS and texturized rubber to take all of the punishment that hard-core gamers might inflict. Visually, the Clutch 2 is a restrained but very attractive design with a nice muted black rubberized body with non-slip sides, a touch of changing RGB colors at the scrolling wheel and left-side Fnatic logo and a contrasting yellow-orange base. This is not a mouse that screams, “Look at me, I’m a 14 year-old geek and I need lots of bright colors and angles in every part of my gaming gear!” The Fnatic logo says all you need to tell the world, “I know what I am doing and demand the best in my equipment.” Overall, the impression is very sophisticated, high tech and would be just as much at home in an investment banker’s office as in a college dorm. Here are the key specifications: • Fnatic Clutch 2 Full Size Pro E-Sports Gaming Mouse (Model MS0002001) • Pixart 3360 optical sensor • Omron D2FC-F-K (50M) switches • NXP MCU • 8 MB memory • Max 12000 CPI resolution • 100 CPI /step resolution increments • 250 IPS speed • 50G maximum acceleration • Up to 12,000 frames/second • 1000 Hz polling rate/1 ms response rate • Lift detection options (2mm or 3mm) • RGB control • 6 Mappable buttons • Custom macros • Adjustable CPI/DPI on the fly • Fnatic OP eSports software • Texturized rubber, polycarbonate and ABS • Size: 131.9mm long x 65.7mm wide x 43.4mm height • Cable: 1.8 meters long • Weight: 97 grams • Two year warranty The optical sensor used in the Clutch 2 is the best available. In a top quality gaming mouse you want optical (LED), not laser illumination. The reason for this choice is that optical sensors track much more accurately over all surfaces. Laser mice are fine for uniform, hard, surfaces but begin to show resolution errors of 5-6% on softer surfaces. Optical mice with top quality sensors have resolution errors of much less than 1%. The Clutch 2 optical sensor can process up to 12,000 frames per second and boasts an adjustable CPI (Count per inch) of up to 12,000. That means that you can set the mouse to move up to 12,000 pixels for each inch the mouse moves. In reality, you would probably never set the CPI above 3,000 and most use settings of 1,200 to 2,000. But excellence in two other measures is necessary to achieve greatness in a gaming mouse. IPS (Inches per second) is the effective speed of the mouse – the maximum movement rate at which the mouse can track movement. The Clutch 2 has an outstanding 250 IPS. The final factor is the maximum acceleration at which the mouse can accurately track. 30G (30 times the force of gravity) is considered excellent. But the Clutch 2 can handle a mind-blowing 50G acceleration rate. Put it all together (superb optical sensor, amazing CPI, stellar IPS and king-of-the-hill acceleration) and you can see why pro gamers designed and love this mouse. Finally, the best gaming mice are all wired, not wireless. Why? The tiny lag in processing the signal of a wireless mouse interferes with game play at the highest level and also reduces the all-important accuracy essential to dominating your opponents. The Clutch 2 has a 1.8 meter wire and that wire is carefully coated to minimize friction and insure durability. OK, that’s a lot of numbers and technical jargon but the bottom line is that you will find this gaming mouse very capable of out-performing anything you currently own in any situation. Download the free Fnatic OP software to easily customize the six buttons, x-CPI, y- CPI, lighting effects and other performance options and save your combination in one of three profiles. Fire up a graphics-intensive game, select the profile you have selected for that game and your Clutch 2 gaming mouse will come alive, roaring with power and giving you the satisfaction that you made a great choice. Even if you spend the majority of your computer time doing boring (but money-making) activities like spreadsheets, word processing, coding or just web browsing you will still find the features of this superb mouse a great aid in those endeavors. Plus, you will smile inwardly, knowing that you can instantly turn into the king of gamers at will! When you consider all of its power and functionality you will agree that the price of the Fnatic Clutch 2 is an amazing bargain. I can enthusiastically recommend it for both serious gamers and for power users of all other software!

    Not long ago I wrote a review about the Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop, demonstrating my lack of knowledge in the arena of PC gaming. I've spent no small amount of time learning about gaming on PCs--building your own rig, benchmarks and FPS performance indicators and the monitors with the best refresh rate for the highest demand games, but I've never fully understood the obsession with wired mice and keyboards (and specifically, mechanical keyboards). I decided it probably wouldn't be something I could read about and understand, so I did what any reasonable human being would do, and got my hands on some true gaming peripherals from a company called Fnatic to see if the hands-on experience would shed any light on the topic for me. Any time I go to Microcenter, I often find myself amazed at how inexpensive a basic wired optical mouse is. So, at $60 for Fnatic's Clutch 2 gaming mouse, I had my doubts…then again, I'm accustomed to paying upwards of $100 for a good wireless mouse (i.e., the MX Master 2S), so maybe this wouldn't be so far off. I was immediately surprised at how basic the Fnatic Clutch 2 looked…standard curved mouse design, a couple of side buttons, scroll wheel, and a few lights--but that's it. It's also very lightweight, which I imagine is important if you're an avid gamer. The size is perfect for someone with larger hands, and it's very comfortable to hold and use. Inside a gaming session, it's equally and comfortable and understated--which is an interesting juxtaposition for me. When I buy a mouse, something like the MX Master 2S, I want to be reminded constantly that I bought that mouse--I want to love the mouse and recognize that it's always under my hand. That said, I learned soon during a game of Rocket League that the less I'm thinking about the mouse, the better off I'd be…I don't want to be reminded of the mouse I paid $60 for, because in that moment the only thing I should be focused on is the game. The Clutch 2 helped accomplish this goal--with its light and simple design, I didn't have to think about where it was, how it felt, or where the buttons were…it's a basic mouse that is great for being exactly that. Then again, an $8 optical mouse from Microcenter might accomplish the same thing…at least in game. And in some sense, that's true--but what it would be missing are a couple extra touches that make this gaming mouse (and others just like it) special: customization. Because I've spent some time watching folks build gaming PCs, I understand the obsession with RGB lighting. I've seen enough "Office Tour" and "Desk Setup" videos to have purchased my own RGB light strips for the back of my desk…I get it. That's one piece of the customization here--utilizing the OP software to change the lights on the mouse to any color your heart desires. And of course, a fancy light show isn't the only thing that the OP software allows: as expected, CPI and Polling Rate customization options are available there, as well as key binding capabilities…along with the ability to save up to 4 different configurations for the mouse so you can easily swap between fully customized presets. My only real complaint about the OP software was how long the install took on Windows…it is totally possible it was a system performance issue, but the installer hung multiple times during my initial installation attempts, but after a while I finally got it figured out. In tweaking this mouse to my liking, it really got me thinking about how such a highly customizable mouse could make a difference in my standard work, not specifically for gaming. So, I downloaded the OP app for Mac (I was surprised there was a Mac installer in the first place), and applied those same preferred settings for my standard workload…and I have to admit, my opinion on wired gaming mice may have changed; this is certainly a different experience from my standard Logitech choices, better in most ways aside from the cable. So at the end of the day, I sit the fence. The Clutch 2 is a well-built product that is comfortable to use and performs well during a gaming session. It could easily replace my wireless mouse because of its smooth operation and simple design, and for only $60 that's not a bad bargain. As long as you like the looks, and the customization is something you're looking for, I think Fnatic might have a product you'll enjoy, even if you're not a gamer.

    The new FNATIC Clutch2 is one of two new Fnatic Gear gaming mice. Fnatic Gear is outfitting the Clutch 2 with the best optical sensor on the market, this thing can track any movement your hand can make! The PixArt 3360 optical sensor has a maximum CPI setting of 12,000, and it can be adjusted in 100 CPI increments. The sensor can track movement with up to 50Gs of force and has up to a 12,000 FPS frame rate. The cable is rubberized and comes with a cable tie so you can use the full length (it is long!) or gather it to your desired length. The The main processor is a NXP 32-bit processor an improvement over the old Holoteck unit. Omron D2FC-F-7N’s are used for the main switches rated with a fifty million click lifespan The whole mouse has a two-year warranty very generous for a gaming mouse. There are a load of features such as the ability to adjust lift-off-distance, DPI and RBG color Schemes. The Omron D2FC-F-7N switches have solid clicks and give you great sensory feedback improving game play and reducing missed clicks. There are are two thumb buttons on the left. The scroll button has just the right tension and no extra play, it is also clickable. The button behind the scroll wheel allows you to change profiles and is almost level with the mouse surface to prevent accidental changes during gameplay. The profiles, RGP colors and pattern and the DPI as well as the lift-off are set up inside the FNATIC OP software. The software is early access at the moment and still being developed. I did not have any bugs occur with the latest version. The same software can control the settings of FNATIC keyboards. Tech Specs (From the FNATIC website) Dimensions W: 66.2mm L: 131mm H: 43mm Weight 97g Sensor Pixart 3360 Resolution 12000 CPI Increments 100 CPI/step Acceleration 50G Frame Rate Up to 12000 fps Cord length 1.8m Polling rate 1000hz Response/Speed 1ms / 250ips Processor/Memory NXP / 8mb Switches Omron D2FC-F-7N (50M) Warranty 2 years This mouse just feels good in my hands, if you have a smaller hand the Flick2 may be a better choice. There is just the right amount of RGB lighting without being distracting. The FNATIC OP software is well designed and allows fine tuning of the mouse for any player, in addition once you set up the mouse you can uninstall it if you want or even move the mouse to different systems and it will keep the settings without installing the software. This is a great gaming mouse for at a very good price point, I highly recommend it.

    The Fnatic Clutch 2 is pretty basic compared to some other gaming mice in the fact that it only has the basic buttons. However, using the Fnatic OP software you can map those buttons to do whatever you want, even changing the right and left click to be something else. The software also allows you to adjust the color pattern of the mouse wheel and the Fnatic logo on the side as well as the performance such as the DPI and lift off distance per profile. The button just behind the mouse wheel allows you, by default, to switch between three profiles on the fly. Making it so that you can have one fine tuned profile, one standard profile and one super fast profile if you choose so. The other great thing is that the profiles are saved to the mouse, so that you can easily use it on any computer with your customization without having to have the software installed. The shape of the Clutch 2 is comfortable, but I found the slight difference in the Flick 2 more my style as it has a little ledge on the right side for my other fingers to grip. Though the Flick 2 claims to be so that you could use it with the left hand, the additional buttons are still in the standard location for a right hand, making it a bit awkward even still. They both feel to be the exact same weight and everything else about them is the same, so it really comes down to preference on feel between them. As for weight, they are slightly weighted compared to a basic mouse. However, not adjustable like some other gaming mice. On a standard flat surface I felt that the weight helped keep better control, though on an odd surface like my couch armrest it started to feel like I was exercising. I’m still experimenting with the different profile options and remapping the outside buttons to perform different tasks depending on what game I am playing, but it has definitely upped my game.

    smooth clutch 2 mouse

    ok, so I first will say, so far I enjoy this mouse and using it currently with my fnatic keyboard. did not think I would like it as I have a Logitech G502 mouse. there are things I liked with the Logitech mouse that this lacks but overall, this mouse glides super smooth on my mousepad making it a lot easier to stay on track on targets. a few things I want to mention first as far as negatives. the software is basic. being software I hope they continue to improve it. but until then, its basic and not as many options. like you cant sync the color scheme with the keyboard. and even if you select the same color settings, like orange is my favorite color, those settings look a lot more yellow on the mouse compared to the keyboard. I would like to have a few more options with the software as well. like maybe select to only have 2 profiles. right now it has 3. I am used to pressing a button and having my mouse go to another dpi setting like a faster and a slow one. so when at menu of games or running around and want to look around, I like to go to the faster dpi. I don't really use 3 profiles so having an option to delete one would be nice. the mouse scroll does not have an unlock to freely allow it to scroll. and again basic software you can only do so much customization on the buttons. but those things are also somewhat due to being spoiled with having a lot more options with Logitech. so have not used a simpler basic mouse in a while. and for the most part, I am getting used to this mouse. I would still like to maybe customize the buttons so that an option is there so if I want to hold down a thumb button it would go to a certain dpi setting and back when released. or again just an option to select and have 2 profiles. that said, those are not my reason for a 4 star as those are just a preference i would like to see. my reason for a 4 star is that it freezes. I play fps games and like is said, I like to at times go from the slower dpi that I like to use when aiming, to a faster one at main menu and when looking around like in a game like pubg. after switching to the different profile a few times, like 20 ish or so. it will freeze up and the mouse wont work at all until I unplug it and replug back in. it does recognize the second I plug back in and works. it does not happen to often but does now and then. usually can play a couple rounds with no issues. if you are not like me and don't change the dpi like I do then great and should not have issues at all. if you do, just something that may or may not happen to you as well. that said, I still prefer this mouse. it glides very smooth on my mouse pad. I love fnatic team and enjoyed watching there csgo team. mouse feels great and responds great as well. in a game like pubg it has helped me out a lot. easier to keep on targets. took a bit to get used to but once there, love it.

    A mouse for gaming and little else

    While I’ve always tended to gravitate towards mice that were known as good gaming mice, the Clutch 2 is the first one that would be considered “tournament quality.” And I have to say I’ve got mixed feelings on it. I have no complaints whatsoever in build quality. They appear to have used excellent materials and the internals are top notch, with high quality clicky Omron switches and what might be the biggest Teflon pads I’ve ever seen on the bottom of a peripheral. There’s an extremely precise programmable sensor which works on a wide variety of surfaces (though there’s no replacing a regular mousepad if you want to really get the best out of it.) I’m also a fan of the size, which fits my hands very well (though it might be a bit much for some. And the RGB effects and branding are a bit more understated than I’d have expected. Where I struggle with it is all the ways in which it differs from the peripherals I’m used to, which place a similar emphasis on the internals but also add in other features for ergonomics and ease of use that you just don’t get with this. You’ve only got four buttons to play with to start (there is another one behind the scroll wheel, but this is dedicated to adjusting the mouse DPI) and the body is very light by design to reduce resistance to movement. These are all features that I can see being ideal for a gaming tournament, where you don’t want to have an abundance of small buttons you can mix up and need to carry out a lot of actions on reflex. But for every day use, I have to say that I kind of struggled with it. It doesn’t help either that the shape of the mouse is pretty much perfectly in line with something you’d expect to be bundled with a new computer, likely a concession to its e-sports pedigree since it’s not always a guarantee that you’ll be able to bring your own peripherals with you into the game. It’s a shape that’s fine if you’re using it an hour at a time, but as a power user I have to say that it didn’t take that long past that before I started to miss a proper thumb rest. In the end, I’d say that I’d recommend the Clutch 2 to anyone with serious aspirations of e-sports play or diehard Fnatic fans, but probably not many people beyond that. As impressive a piece of hardware as it is, I just can’t see this mouse becoming a daily driver for anything outside of gaming.

    I really like this mouse. It's extremely accurate, and fits my large hand well, but I do have a couple issues. The main issue I have can be fixed/addressed with a software update. The issue is with the actual OP software. You can adjust the DPI, The RGB, lift off distance, and even angle snapping, but you can not setup profiles for each game. You are limited to three profiles. They can be accessed via the software or the mouse. Ideally, you would want a particular profile to load when a certain game or application is launched. For example, for everyday desktop use, I have my mouse setup for 5200 DPI, precision on, default buttons, but when I play COD WW2, I play at 5600 DPI and "precision" off, and normally have the buttons programmed actions other that forward/back and scroll. I have to manually select the profile I want, and also manually disable "precision" via the windows mouse settings app. This is not something I care to do each time I play a game. The second thing I don't care much for is the location of the mouse sensor. I normally use a G700s (wired), and the sensor is near the top of the mouse, making my movements quicker, and I don't have to move the mouse as much to make the movement. Upping the DPI helped a little, but this is probably a muscle memory issue, and in time, I will get used my new Clutch 2. Overall it's a very accurate and comfortable mouse. I enjoy using it.

    I use a fingertip grip when using a mouse. Even though I have this grip, I liker a heavier weight to my mouse. That is where I dropped a star on this mouse. It is a little on the light side. Making the light weight even more pronounced, this mouse glides really well. I like the feel of the glide. I am just afraid I will slide it off the desk in a momentary fit. You have 3 profiles you can save for speed and lighting. Not sure you can expect much more than that. The length of the mouse may be one of the longer mice I have ever used. I have XXL hands and this has a tendency of touching my palm while in use. It just feels elongated. Button placement feels natural. Unlike some mice, you can feel the space between the forward and back side buttons. I am dropping a star here also as I can see some people may have an issue with how far back the back button is. My hand size helps me here. I can see someone with a claw grip not liking how long it is. For as long as the mouse is, it is not very wide. Someone with a palm grip may find the width uncomfortable. It is hard for me to say since my hands are so big. My son agrees with this statement and his hands are a little smaller than mine but uses a palm grip. This mouse really feels like it was designed for a fingertip user with average to slightly large sized hands. Some quick thoughts: -The cord is about 5.5 feel long. -Lights are normal places for a mouse. -Software for settings is done really well. -There is no delay in reaction time. -The scroll has a good resistance to it with just enough feedback for it to be comfortable. -It really feels like this should have a braided cable, but it is a rubber coating. Overall I like the mouse and can recommend it to the right grip type. I would definitely go into a brick and mortar store and test the feel of the mouse to see if you like how it sits in hand. If it feels good in hand, you will love the mouse.

    I have been skeptical of big-name branded gaming gear for a while now. The quality and performance have been inconsistent up to this point. Full disclosure: I follow e-sports and Team Fnatic is among my favorites. However, this does not affect my opinion on this mouse. So, having said that, I do like the look of the mouse. It has a matte plastic shell with orange accents that do not attract a lot of fingerprints or smudging. The RGB lighting is phenomenal. The colors do pop and the Fnatic symbol looks great. But that’s just looks. As far as comfortability, I have medium size hands. The mouse fits comfortably overall and it is on the light side, which I appreciate. I use a light paw grip style and my fingers reach the main buttons just fine. Clicking is satisfying and responsive. The cable is a bit stiff and can affect precision. The cable may pull a bit changing pointer placement, even when using a flexible mouse bungee cord, I still was not able to keep it from snapping back in position. So that means that your hand must always hold or rest on the mouse. It’s a small thing, but it’s there. The mouse wheel feels grippy and responsive. One thing that annoyed me a bit was that the side buttons are placed too close to where my thumb sits, and I click the back button by mistake occasionally. This can change how I grip the mouse therefore affecting the ergonomics, undermining the design. There is a DPI button that can switch between 3 settings while using the mouse on the fly. However, if you do get this mouse, you must absolutely get the OP software from Fnatic to fine tune the performance and RGB lights. This app alone pushed the score by half a star. Although not perfect, I’d still recommend it for the price and even more if you’re a die-hard Fnatic fan.

    Not noticeably superior but still a fine mouse

    I remember a time when there was a huge noticeable difference in responsivity between wired and wireless mice. You just could not depend on wireless mice, which could cut out unpredictably and show lags in responsivity. But these days, wireless mice are so well-made that the difference between them and wired mice has become vanishingly small. I tested the Fnatic Clutch 2 side-by-side with the mouse I usually use, the MX Anywhere Bluetooth mouse. I alternated between them, moving the cursor around at different speeds and in different patterns, and I would be fibbing if I said that I could tell the difference. For gaming, I would probably prefer the security of the Clutch 2 wired mouse, but I am only a once-in-a-while gamer. It is possible that there are other aspects to the mouse, such as sensitivity, that would make it superior for gaming, so I let my son try it for a couple of weeks. He is a huge gamer who uses a different brand of wired gaming mouse. He said that the Clutch 2 is very nice. It has a good feel to it and responds well. But it did not perform better or worse than the wired mouse he usually uses for gaming. The mouse comes with some programmable software, but the limited instructions that came with it did not clearly explain why I might want to change any of the default features of the mouse. So I did not experiment with these. In summary, I have no problems with this mouse. It feels good in my hand and is sensitive and responsive. I can't say that its performance is better than the wireless Bluetooth mouse I normally use, but it would probably be a better choice for gaming.

    Fnatic - Clutch 2 Wired Optical Gaming Mouse - Black I have been using the Fnatic Clutch 2 mouse for around a week now. Like any review you have to compare products and although I don’t have anything really bad to say about the Clutch 2 I also haven’t come away thinking it was unique in a way that would stand out. The mouse is built well and the RGB lighting is suttle and works on the mouse without being over the top. Probably a nice balance for what is mostly a simple mouse. I found the mouse to be a bit bigger than I like. Its feels wide so I spent more time with it to get better used to it. When I unboxed it the first thing I thought was maybe this wouldn’t be a fingerprint magnet, but it is. This was not my experience with the Fnatic Mini Streak Professional Esports Wired Gaming Mechanical Switch Keyboard I was also reviewing. The main mouse buttons have a nice predictable click that is done well. The button to change the dpi settings is dead simple to use and doesn’t get in the way. The pad at the bottom on the mouse almost covers the whole bottom. Certainly one of the larger pads I have seen but even still its didn’t have any faster movement over my mouse pad as I hoped. The side buttons are also within easy reach and fell just fine. This is a well done gaming mouse. And although Fnatic touts their esports credentials. The mouse that lets you be a better gamer is ultimately any mouse regardless of their esports branding. In the final analysis this is a mouse worth giving a try especially if you're looking for a simple solutions without features you won’t use this is worth taking a look at.

    I'm not really a corded mouse user, but I can see how one would be better for gamers. Reducing any chance for lag is probably needed for online shooters. The mouse looks great and it functions wonderfully. I attached it to a backup Windows 10 machine with no issues. I didn't have a mouse pad available so I just used the clean desk. It's an old military steel tanker desk and the mouse performed as expected. It was easy to use, glided smoothly and the settings out of the box were perfect for me. The software I have downloaded for the Fnatic Streak keyboard also allows for mouse adjustments. You can adjust the lighting just like the keyboard, but honestly I left it stock because unlike the keyboard, I can't see the mouse, my hand is covering it up. There is a performance tab that allows you to adjust a few sensor positions, but again I just left it stock. For Gamers, I'm sure as suggestion are sent the software will be updated. I didn't look but I need to see how to adjust the scroll wheel. It clicks, which I like over the Logitech G603 I use on my main desktop. Unlike the G603, it seems to take forever to scroll a page with the Clutch 2. I'm sure there must be a setting that can pick how many lines to scroll with each click...at least I hope so. The mouse is made for right-handed people with the buttons on the left side. Other than that, it's a great wired mouse right out of the box and even though I don't game much anymore, I think gamers would be very happy with the performance. I'd recommend this to a friend.

    Excellent Performance - Not Designed For All Hands

    Fnatic's new Clutch 2 wired mouse is an ergonomically designed mouse for right hand use only - there is no left-hand version. I found it to be very comfortable but it is not the best ergonomic design out there. And even though the mouse fits comfortably in my hand, people with smaller hands might find the mouse to be too large - I recommend testing the dimensions and weight of the mouse in the store before buying it (it's kinda heavy too - something I prefer but I think I'm in the minority there). The sides and scroll wheel of the mouse are rubberized - and that might be the best feature here. It makes the mouse easy to hold securely without having to get clutch-y or grippy - that goes a long way in keeping my hand from cramping over time and I feel like I have better control with reduced strain. As you would expect, the mouse is lightening fast and is very responsive. It has selectable resolution and lift detection. The illumination colors and brightness and the assignment of button functions can be controlled by Fnatic's software, but the installation program set-off my antivirus so I left those controls off for the time being. It will take me some time to adapt to using a wired mouse again, but I'm really happy with the design and performance of this one.

    Good feeling FPS mouse for medium to large hands

    I bought the Fnatic Clutch 2 for playing FPS games because I wasn't satisfied with the Logitech G300 or Razer Abyssus that I had previously bought. The main reason I bought the Clutch is because it has two extra buttons on the side which don't get in the way when aiming. For RTS and MOBA games, the G300's extra top buttons were much more useful, but for FPS games I really just wanted a couple buttons that could be reached without taking a finger off the fire button. I also enjoyed the feeling of the Clutch 2 in my hand. Your mileage will vary depending on how large your hands are and how you hold the mouse, but for my moderately sized hands it feels better than most other mice I've held because it fills up my palm and doesn't move around at all in my grip. The sensor quality, polling rate, DPI, etc. are all clearly designed for FPS gaming as well. You can adjust the DPI in increments of 100, and the polling rate is 1000 which seems to be the gold standard nowadays. The sensor is a 3360 too which makes this a very good mouse for the price. It's got a few less doodads than other, more expensive mice, but the features that it does have are all top quality so if you only need two extra mouse buttons then this could be the mouse for you.

    Comfy, Responsive, Heavy

    The FNATIC CLUTCH 2 wired gaming mouse is a very comfy and responsive mouse. I never feel like I am hunting for the mouse to do what I want and I it feels really good doing it. The sides have a really soft feel that work great for long gaming sessions. Unlike the mini streak keyboard, this mouse is also right at home in an office. I originally picked up this mouse to be a travel mouse to use with a gaming laptop that I have, but I will be keeping this one on full duty in the home office where I do my gaming and transitioning my current full time mouse to backup and travel duty. The only gripe that I have is that this mouse feels heavy, but not too heavy. I have a wireless gaming mouse and even with batteries in the wireless mouse it is far lighter than this mouse. That being said, the mouse stays down on the mouse pad and you dont have to worry about accidentally picking it up and screwing up your movements. If you want a wired gaming mouse that feels great in hand and performs well, look into this mouse.

    A mouse that compliments the Fnatic keyboard

    I'm a guy who like pairing things from the same companies, when possible. I had tried the Fnatic keyboard that just came out the Mini Streak, and love it! This mouse is a purpose designed mouse that will make you realize this mouse was made for gaming. It works as a gaming mouse should with features you didn't realize were a thing if you were not a serious gamer. Lift detection, reprogrammable buttons, weight, types of materials used, etc. all are things considered when making this mouse. Fnatic is a name that I hadn't really paid attention to but shows you that I'm not always in the loop - this company makes stuff that serious gamers use. And I'm not a pro or anything, but enjoy having the right tools to improve my gaming odds and experience. Buy this, you will like it I'm sure. And if you don't, Best Buy has a great return policy - and while you are at it, get their keyboard. It will give you a sense of how much fun gaming can be, and the right tools makes it even better.

    Fantastic mouse, not just for gaming

    This is a great all around mouse. It fits well in the hand, has easy to reach "extra" buttons, and glides smoothly across my gigantic mousepad. The two thumb buttons are positioned just barely above where I rest my thumb, so it is easy to click either one without worrying about losing your grip. The button under the wheel is the DPI toggle, with 3 settings. It's a little harder to press, but that keeps you from accidentally hitting it in the heat of the moment, causing you to turn really slowly when you need to do some quick moves. At first I was upset that there was no toggle to allow a freewheel instead of a clicky wheel, but then I realized that I never go freewheeling on the mouse that does have the toggle, so no huge loss. The lighting options are also nice and understated (and what I mistook for some lightbleed in a manufacturing defect was actually the DPI indicator), though I wish it would pair and pulse in sync with my Fnatic keyboard.

    This is a very comfortable mouse and lightning fast! I have small hands and find it very easy to use, bare in mind, this mouse is intended for right handed people. If you would like one ambidextrous, you can check Fnatics other mouse, the Flick2 which is for both hands. Upon installing the OP software, firmware updates were applied and you can use it to customize the DPI settings, which the mouse can store 3 profiles on it. Also RGB lighting is configurable via the software. The mouse uses the best switches/sensors out on the market right now so it is lightning fast. Oh, remember to disable mouse acceleration in Windows for better gaming!!

    Love the mouse, completely beautiful, well made solid mouse. The RGB effects are awesome and it just feels really strong. The wire hasn't given me any issues but it doesn't have any fancy breaded features so I will attempt to keep it from kinks as that has been an issue with other brands. I still have not downoaded any apps or programs to control mouse speed setup buttons and such but plan to do so in the future, not sure how easy that is gonna be. Overall though very pleased with this company and how responsive, awesome looking this mouse is. It comes with some fancy stickers too lol.
