Mad Catz R.A.T. PRO S Gaming Mouse Overview
If you’ve seen a Mad Catz R.A.T. mouse before you know they have their own distinctive look to them and the PRO S is no different. Mad Catz has gone with an all black design with neon yellow accents, which looks really nice. This first thing I noticed when I picked up the mouse for the first time was how lightweight it was. Weighing in at only 77g it is one of the lighter mice out there. This makes it great for long playing hours as you’ll have fatigue-free gaming.
Starting on the top of the mouse we have the palm rest with the Mad Catz logo on it. This palm rest can actually be adjusted. You can bring it out up to 12mm from the mainframe of the mouse. It is a simple design that just pulls out and clicks into place. This allows you to have the perfect fit on your hand.
You can actually remove the palm rest completely from the mouse by pulling it all the way out. This actually allows you to tilt the palm rest at an angle.
You have the ability to tilt the palm rest 15 degrees on either side. This will give you a very unique grip and feel to the mouse, again fitting your hand and playing style the best.
At the front of the mouse you have your two main left and right mouse buttons, scroll wheel and DPI button. The scroll wheel has rubber on it so you have better control and the scroll wheel can be pressed as a button as well. The left mouse button has an angled section on it which helps keep your finger on the mouse.
The left side of the mouse features three buttons, a back and forward button and a larger precision aim button. Keep in mind every button on the mouse can be programmed. The left side of the mouse also has a thumb rest, something I’ve always loved about R.A.T. mice.
The opposite side of the mouse does not have any buttons, but features a section which can be used for a finger rest. All section of the mouse feature a nice rubber-type coating which is very comfortable and has good grip to it.
Flipping the mouse over we can see the base is made of two sections with the sensor positioned in the center. The two sides of the base have mouse feet installed for a smooth glide across your gaming surface. The mouse features a PixArt PMW3310 5000 DPI optical sensor and below it is a profile switch button.
Mad Catz has continued the neon yellow to the USB cable connected to the mouse. This cable is nicely braided and features a gold-plated USB connector.
