    I have paid way less attention to the competitive scene than I would like, and all the reviews/comparisons seem to stick to the 'usual suspects' of peripherals, Razer, Logitech, Corsair. What is it about them that makes for such a good showing among pros?

    Sponsorship, simple no-frills design (no gazillion buttons, drivers, excessive RGB lighting, removable weights, sniper button, etc.), top sensor, lightweight, excellent shapes comfortable for most people some based on legendary mice of yore that many pros are familiar with.

    Makes sense. They do look pretty subdued and I like that.

    The fact that these mice need no drivers is another huge plus. I've tried Zowie mice but found them uncomfortable for long-term use. I also needed more fine tuning in terms of DPI than the fixed settings coded into the hardware.

    I recently picked up a Corsair Scimitar and am really liking it. I've never so much as installed an MMORPG or MOBA, but the large quantity of extra side buttons comes in really handy for older PC games that have a lot of keyboard controls, like System Shock 2, Crysis, and especially the OG Deus Ex. The function row in the last game is for all your augmentations, and it's reasonably straightforward to bind the ones you use most often to the side buttons on the mouse. I even programmed a macro to take advantage of one of the infinite experience point glitches that happens near the end of the game (I don't consider it a cheat/hack if the game allows it within its own parameters). Corsair has really gotten its act together in terms of software from when I last used it. It's still not as intuitive as Razer Synapse or Logitech's offering, but it's much, much better than it was.

    I have a Sabre, don't know if it's the same on all of their mice but it looks like there's hardware and software dpi settings in the same mouse, which is interesting. Like when you boot but before CUE starts, you can cycle through dpi presets, and then after CUE launches those dpi settings take over. Or at least that's how it seemed to work on the last firmware.

    To each their own. Corsair mice aren't as popular because of their boxy shapes and weight.

    As popular in what context? MLG? Couldn't care less about that.

    I mean I recommend them, but I will admit my hands are pretty big and something that fits me might not be for everyone.

    Exactly. What's fit others hands, maybe not fit me. And as you or (other) said... Corsair is bigger and fits bigger hands.
    Btw. Logitech G900 is coming. Got it for under half price:) And I like the Logitech G502 Proteus(fits well in my hands). Hence I go also for the wireless model.

    Edit. Already home:)
