Dimensions: 120 x 66 x 42mm
Coming in at a mere 59grams, the Pwnage Ultra Custom was the first ever wireless lightweight mouse to take advantage of this small gap in the market. Mouse enthusiasts have been waiting years for a mouse like this. It combines a super light weight and wireless capability with the very successful Zowie EC shape.
I have been using the Zowie EC for years and I was waiting for a lightweight or wireless version. I didn’t expect a mouse to combine all three of those things. It’s an ergonomic mouse which only targets right hand users. For one of the first mice that Pwnage had manufactured, this was a big hit. Lots of companies like Glorious and finalmouse, have also made big success in the lightweight mice niche.
The mouse shape is identical to the Zowie EC2, which has been a fan favorite in the FPS community for over 3 years.
The Pwnage Ultra slants down to the right and flares out providing a giant comfort curve for your hand to tilt down to the right. This curvature naturally follows the anatomy of your hand and wrist. As it is more comfortable to hold a mouse with a slight tilt to the right, instead of having your wrist flat on the desk. The back is 66mm wide, providing a great surface area that fits perfectly into the palm of your hand. Most people find the shape and size of this mouse to be extremely comfortable.
At 120mm long, this mouse is in the perfect middleground for all types of hand shapes and sizes. Nearly everyone will find this shape and size comfortable and natural to them. The height is 42mm which is near identical to the Zowie EC by just a few mm off. This 42mm hump in the center of the mouse provides a stable support for your upper palm and fingers. It almost aims your fingers upward at a comfortable angle, then it’s up to you if you arch or keep your fingers flat on the mouse.
The Pwnage Ultra Custom comes in a wide range of color combinations in a premium coating like most mice. I found this to be very similar to the G wolves Skoll, which is another ergonomic lightweight mouse, just without the wireless feature. Usually I don’t like the premium coating because it is a little slippery, but the combination of a honeycomb shell provides a lot more grip.
You can also purchase grip tape for the sides of this mouse which is really cool. For any other mouse I only like glossy or matte coating. Glossy for when my hands don’t sweat, because my skin will stick to the paint and I will have more grip on the mouse. Matte for when my palms do sweat, because sweaty hands on a glossy surface is like slipping over on wet tiles.
Talking about aesthetics, it looks incredible, you can practically choose any color you want and you can have an individual color for the main 2 buttons, the DPI button, the palm side of the shell and both of the exterior sides. This gives you a lot of freedom in creating your own unique mouse.
Most importantly, how good is the battery? With all wireless mice, the biggest purchase factor is if the battery is reliable and lasts a long time. Pwnage Ultra uses a sensor called the PAW3335, which doesn’t chew up much power. The office battery life is around 66 hours and the gaming battery life is around 40 hours, which is a little shorter than the G PRO by 4 hours.
Although, this mouse charges 50% faster than the G PRO. It will only take you a single hour of recharge before you are at full again. If you are wondering how this mouse is so lightweight, just look at the battery which only weighs 7 grams. You also receive a lightweight paracord USB-C cable in the box to recharge your mouse that is a lengthy 2m/6.5 ft long. It comes in both black or white too.
All you have to do is plug in the USB-C cable into the front of your mouse and then it becomes a paracord wired mouse while recharging. This cable is also extremely lag free, coming in with a 1ms response time, so there will be no difference in performance between wired or wireless.
If you think the mouse didn’t already look good enough, wait til you see the LEDs light up when you turn it on. There are LEDs that trim the outside of your scroll wheel and also light up the Pwnage logo within the shell. To change any of the colors you simply download the Pwnage driver software and you can customize everything.
This mouse is perfect for all types of grip styles. If you play with claw or palm grip, your hand will naturally follow the curvature of the mouse and lay comfortably. The only person who won’t be able to use this mouse is someone who is left handed.
Even if you are a fingertip player you can use this mouse, because the back plate detaches right off and gives you a smaller fingertip mouse. The shape of the Pwnage is similar to the EC2, but it is near impossible to fingertip grip the EC2 because it is a chunky and heavy piece of equipment. However, the Pwnage that has the same shape, is extremely light and has a detachable back piece to reduce the size.
The buttons are quality and have a tactile feedback as you would expect. The DPI button is much larger than any other mouse and is right behind the main 2 clicks. Side buttons are on the left hand side just like any other ergonomic mouse and they are out of the way of your thumb position. Each model comes with a set of button spacers, to allow you to change the travel distance of the buttons to you liking. They range from 0.5mm which is described as soft & subtle, to 0.8mm which is called crisp & tactile. No other mouse has such a user friendly modding experience. Most other mice void the warranty if you pull it apart, this mouse wants you to pull it apart and customize it.
Which one is your endgame? These are the absolute best wireless lightweight mice in the world. Soon a lot of players will be finding their endgame mouse, I believe the mouse industry has just about peaked and has created near perfect mice.
