Mad Catz Cyborg Premium Gaming Mice

Taking the well-known Saitek brand to the next level, Mad Catz have finally demonstrated their embodiment of the very spirit of Saitek battleship-build gaming peripherals with the Cyborg R.A.T. series. These are truly groundbreaking mice, but their responsiveness could make or break them no matter how good the adjustable technology is.

There are 4 models in total, the high-end one comes in both a wired and wireless version and the two low-end models are wired-only.

The R.A.T. 7 and 9 both feature full adjustability with a variety of thumbscrews making the whole device resemble a medieval hand torture instrument. It also includes a weight system for good measure, although I’ve never personally believed in those.

The low-end R.A.T. 5 is length adjustable and also includes adjustable weighting features, however it drops the laser dpi to 4000.
