PCXmods Mouse Grips v2.0

Introduction

Introduction

How many times have you found yourself losing your grip when gaming? Late night sessions with mates; greasy corn chips; pizza and soft drink; sweaty hands - it's a recipe for disaster. Thankfully there is a solution and it comes in the form of stick on pads that provide additional traction between your hand and the surface of your mouse. This is especially important if you happen to own a gaming mouse that lacks grip for your fingers like the Logitech G7 laser mouse for example.

Packaging front

Following the conclusion of my recent XtracPads Ripper XL v2 mouse mat , I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing some of their Mouse Grips. Of course I jumped at the offer and subsequently these will be the subject of todays review. Let's see what Mouse Grips have to say about their product:

All NEW version 2.0
Featuring egrips® Technology


Get an edge over your opponents by keeping your grip sure and steady.
Made from a very special blend of a texturized rubber, MouseGrips are an excellent companion to any computer gamer or power user. Get your game on without loosing control with MouseGrips

So what exactly are Mouse Grips? Essentially Mouse Grips are small shapes of high-traction rubber with a sticky backing that can easily be applied to your gaming mouse, games controllers or even mobile phones. The only real limit to the application is your imagination. Again, let's see what Mouse Grips have to say about their product:

Precision cut shapes to fit most any mouse or trackball. Sporting a very thin profile, Mouse Grips v2.0 are designed to enhance your gameplay and computer usage by providing comfort and super grip. Installation couldn't be easier! Simply peel them off and place them on your mouse wherever they feel the most comfortable to you.

Mouse Grips also have a rather amusing commercial on their website that really sums everything up. You can view it here (Flash Player required)

Anyway, let's get on with the review...

Specification

* Designed for use on Logitech, Razer, Microsoft, Dell, Kensington, Creative and many more computer mice and trackball pointing devices.

Packaging and Contents

The Mouse Grips packaging is fairly simple, but quite eye-catching. Featuring a predominantly red and black theme with a mouse on the front cover that spruiks the fact that Mouse Grips can also be used on trackball devices, joysticks and game pads.

Packaging rear

On the rear of the packaging it provides a simple illustration of how to clean and install Mouse Grips on your mouse as well as a basic run-down on how they can improve mouse control.

For those interested, Mouse Grips have a FAQ section on their website which provides significantly more information that simply couldn't be included on the packaging. Feel free to read their FAQ section here

Opening up the packaging I was greeted by a small sheet of paper housing the Mouse Grips and an included cleaning sachet. (For those of you in the know, check out the re-order code in the top right corner :))

Package contents

Currently, the Mouse Grips v2 are only shipping in this colour - Graphite. But according to the manufacturer if the demand for additional colours grows, then they will look at introducing additional colours. Personally I like the graphite theme as it goes well with my Logitech G7.

The Mouse Grips are incredbly thin...in the vicinity of approximately 1mm in thickness for those who use the metric system. You can see just how thin from the image below.
