I fully understand the reason that the marketing people thought up the idea and why it sells, but I really think that serious users be much better served if the marketers inserted these neat little weights up their neat little @$$es and knocked another fifteen dollars off the MSRP. ok done.
I was of the same opinion as regards the weights; "Yeah, Right... weights, meh".

But after a while I got used to the heft of a weightier than average mouse, at least to what i was used to up till then and now I'm sold

I like the weight of 4 x 4.5g and 4 x 1.7g weights and my G5 is the best mouse I've used.
