For a mouse that is designed for low weight, any doubts you might have had about exactly how low is dispelled as soon as you pick up the packaging. If we didn't know better we'd have thought ASUS had shipped us an empty box. There is almost zero weight here. The whole package weighs less than many of the mice we review.

Inside we have the usual ASUS warranty card and fold out manual that needs a serious redesign. It's like grabbing an OS map of Wales at 1:1 scale. Just put it in a booklet design instead of testing our origami skills. The mouse itself is extraordinarily light. The cable almost weighs more than the main body. It grabs your attention that's for sure.

On the underside we find three low-friction feet and yet more evidence of the tremendous diet that the M4 Air has gone on. This diet has been so successful we expect to see the TUF M4 Air advertising an Audible book at the beginning of every Youtube video within the week.

The pattern, as well as allowing ASUS to greatly reduce the body weight of the TUF M4 Air, also really allow you to get a good grip on it. It's as heavily textured as anything we've seen, and that, coupled to that low internia, really helps your accuracy.

The right hand side is free from any buttons but still has that texturing we mentioned above.

The cable is the new paracord style, which we prefer to the tight braiding of old. It kinks less, tangles less and generally gives you more freedom of movement even if you're not running with a cable bungee.

Lastly the Air lives up to its name with a measured weight of 50.9g. It's rated at 47g, but even at 50 it's hardly a porker.

I knew my Iwata airbrush would serve another purpose. Now I can use it not only for cooling my bits n bobs with fresh air but also cleaning my mouse

Funny thing is it seems like a copy of the Logitech 3d printed mouse mods you see on thingiverse where the housing is done to look like this.

I don't know, the conclusion makes me think of even more unwanted movement while reading an article

Plus, the holes will leave marks in your palm if your grip is a little strong.Quote

My Logitech g pro wireless is light enough. I don't see the whole dilemma of ultra light mice. Sure heavy ones sucks but I think there is a point of diminishing returns imo. I haven't used anything lighter than the g pro, but I don't see it making me a better gamer for the costs they will surely ask for.Quote
