Mad Catz B.A.T 6+ Review

When you've seen as many mice as we have then even the slightest change in packaging design comes as a welcome relief. The B.A.T 6+ eschews the idea of a regular cardboard box and vacuum-formed plastic internals and instead has a sturdy outer cardboard sleeve out of which you slide the main container and reveal the mouse itself. Nice.
Within that box we have the mouse itself, a quick start guide and two alternate side plates if you prefer your mice to have a thumb shelf. There is also a much higher palm rest if you're a claw/palm player who likes your wrist a little higher in the air.
Stripping the supplied side plates and palm rest off shows how perfectly symmetrical the B.A.T 6+ is. Often manufacturers claim a mouse is ambidextrous just because the right hand curve is subtle. This is a pure take upon the idea and perfect for lefties.
On the underside we find three large low friction feet and a small eye for the sensor. This view also shows how narrow in the hips the Mad Catz B.A.T 6+ is.
As an ambidextrous mouse there are buttons on both sides. You can also see the main lighting module which we'll show you in a couple of pages time. The prominent screw heads are where the magnets attach that keep it all together.
The parts themselves are easy to swap around, being attached with magnets and requiring nothing more than a gentle pull. You can combine them easily too, if you want just the shelf for one side rather than both, or would rather have the raised palm section. It's a flexible system and one that works beautifully. No matter what combination you choose it looks like it was designed that way.
