What customers say about "Size & Weight"
HyperX Pulsefire Core RGB Gaming Mouse
  • HyperX never fails to amaze me. This mouse has a great combination of fit, weight, and responsiveness.
  • It weighs like a small mouse and the size of it makes it so my hand doesn't cramp up.
  • The size is great and the ergonomics are just what I look for.
  • I have medium sized hands and play palm style and love it.
  • This mouse is on the larger size and is great for palm grip. It has soft, textured grips on the sides that actually yield a bit if you squeeze them.

  • It's still fairly comfortable in a palm grip, but you may have to hold on somewhat tightly so that it doesn't slide out of your hand.
