The Razer Viper Mini took over my desk and now the Ultimate has taken the mini's place.

1 year update: After a year it is still my favorite mouse and I have acquired many more mice since then. This includes the G Pro Superlight as well as the Aerox 3 Wireless (Model D minus, M42, XM1r and many more). It is still the mouse I perform the best with. I have a non-aggressive claw grip that I use with it that just simply feels better than with any other mouse. On top of the grip, the quality has not degraded on a single component of the mouse or dock. I still wish the M1 and M2 were had 5g more tension and a tiny bit more feedback when depressed. Also with the optical switches I think it would be cool to be able to adjust an artificial debounce time. I regularly outperform my other mice with this mouse in Valorant with the NP-01, GPX and M42 being distant #2, 3 and 4. The Aerox just came in yesterday so I cannot place it especially until I get aftermarket feet because these suck butts, the shape however is similar and could be very good. The RVU still reigns supreme.
Update: About 5 months after owning the Viper Ultimate I have found I play best with it over my whole collection. I initially thought the Mini was better but I am a little less precise with it. Right now I switch between the RVU and the Vaxee Zygen NP 01 fo Valorant (which I play the most) with the mini as my fast mouse for Apex and games like that. With the Viper Ultimate including the dock being 99$ right now for black friday I say jump on it. The mini is 29$! right now which is literally insane. I am having a hard time finding a mouse I play better with.
I play shooters, atm Valorant, CSGO, Destiny 2, Apex Legends (not so much after the wraith nerfs), and a little Overwatch here and there. I come from using a g305 and I love that thing. I bought this and was hitting shots I couldn't hit before. It was hard to get used to the grip at first but now I love it. So much so that I bought a Viper Ultimate and I can safely say I like the mini a lot better. My hands are medium sized- 19cm X 9cm and I switch between claw and fingertip. It is super light and the weight distribution is nice. M1,2,3,4 are really good, no play or issues. The cable is very light and flexible and I use it with a Razer bungie v2 and I honestly forget it's wired sometimes. The skates are some of the best stock I have seen. The sensor is super accurate and the resolution error has to be one of the best (I would have to look it up). Do not let the Razer branding or 40$ price fool you, this thing is top notch. Now i wish I could sell my week old 150$ Ultimate because it doesn't beat its 40$ little brother. Trust me, if you are looking for one of the top 3 mice out there. This is one of them.
