Default Razer DeathAdder Respawn Weight

Hi guys. This is a quick question because Razer's own page and alle the rewievs I've read seem to be in a disagreement on this.

Razerzone.com states that the DeathAdder has a weight of 148g which is like my mouse now (I really like that) but I've seen reviews stating that it weighs all the way down to about 107g which I think is very light. So anyone who has the mouse or knows exactly how heavy or light it is?

Thanks

I weighted my DeathAdder Black Edition, and I came up with 148~149g including the cable, and just under 110ish without the cable.



I guess reviewers were just weighing it without the cable.

Great, thanks a lot.

The reason I ask is that I need a new mouse and can get the Deathadder Respawn for 50% off. And as I said I like that my current mouse is a bit heavy but that might just be because it's the only mouse I've had.

So do you think it's light or can you recommend it?

Gaming mice can't get a lot lighter than the Deathadder. Between the pcb/switches/sensors/wheel/etc, it's pretty difficult to get the total weight under 100g without the cable. You'd have to cheap out too much on the build, and even if you did it won't save you much weight.

I use the deathadder and I have never even noticed the weight. Seems light enough to me.

Oh, what I meant was that I like it if the mouse is a bit heavy. But as you said, the DeathAdder is a light model. However, I've only had one mouse before so can you recommend it anyway?
