The Cougar Dualblader Is Indeed A Gaming Mouse
Swap Buttons, Palmrests And Even Change The Height
At first glance it is hard to tell that the Cougar Dualblader is a mouse, however as you read through the review at Modders-Inc the shape begins to make sense. The sides of the mouse feature removable side grips, in two different sizes so you can choose wide, narrow or even go without them. The same goes for the mouse’s butt, with two different palm rests to chose from depending on which feels better for you. The orange strut on the back allows you to raise and lower the profile of the mouse, apparently it can take a while to finally dial it in as you can make minute changes to the height.
The customization doesn’t stop there, as there are even buttons which can be swapped in and out. There are two Sniper buttons that can be attached on the left and right side of the mouse, as you so chose. There are also two metal wings, which act as trigger buttons that you can add and remove as you like. If that isn’t enough, Cougar also includes STL files for you to be able to print your own Dualblader compatible add ons.
Inside is a PMW3389 optical gaming sensor which can handle up to 16,000 DPI, with four savable steps using Cougar’s UIX software, as well as setting the sensitivity for the Sniper buttons. It might look like it would come apart under a heavy gaming session, but as you can read in the fulll review, that does not seem to be the case.
When it comes to mice, it is a very personal piece of hardware. Everyone has different needs and preferences. For me, a simple mouse with 6 buttons and an adjustable DPI does fine. However, Cougar's Dualblader mouse has me re-thinking a few things.
