CM's budget friendly mouse, with brand name features. Quite a creative and different take from other popular mice.

You will first notice the ring-finger holder of this mouse.
This is the part that is most different from most mice. While I feel like this isn't for everyone, it's still pretty darn comfortable after you give some time.
The shape naturally encourages variations of the claw grip- maybe because it's a pretty flat and short mouse.

*If you don't like restricted freedom of your ring finger, please think again before purchasing this mouse!!*

'Primary keys'
Hey look, they're shaped like Deathadder keys... need I say more? Haha... it's like a miniature version. This and Omron switches are awesome. But it doesn't stop. Slight-rubber matte finish on those left-right clicks! great design choice, really. These two buttons are my favorite part. I love them.
The feel and touch of these keys, very easy to click and VERY smooth surface... it's ideal! I wouldn't mind having these keys in all my mice.

'Mouse wheel'(Rubberized)
I think this uses the same wheel as the Spawn. These wheels are some of the better feeling, no doubt. Just the right 'weight' of increments when you scroll. Great tactile feedback.
Think IE explorer 3.0 scroll wheels, but better & smoother

Rubbery excellent side grips.
Back/Foward buttons are quite pointed, lovely feedback and sound.
Dpi increments buttons are mushy and cilcky (yeah, only 500, 1000, 2000 increments allowed. 2000dpi is great).
Base material of mouse is basically anti-sweat plastic.

'Final Feelings'
I feel like this is a very fresh take, and it really make you wonder why no one had made one quite like this yet.

I have been a long time user of the legendary Logitech mx518 mouse, and decided it was about time for an upgrade. After doing some browsing, I came across the CM Storm line of products. Truth be told, I found a good deal on the CM Storm Inferno first. To make a long story short, the Inferno was a cool mouse but very uncomfortable for me. Being a claw grip user, I needed something that fit my style - enter the Spawn. I ordered up one of these bad boys, returned the Inferno and the rest was history. It felt immediately comfortable for my claw/fingertip style grip, and the only thing that took a bit of getting used to was the higher DPI. When I say higher DPI, I mean the 1800 setting. I NEVER use the 3500 setting as it is just waaay too much, as on my old mx518 I would use around 1400-1500 tops. Once adapted, I immediately started noticing improvements in my game. Most notably, I used to be horrible with the "rail gun" in Quake multi-player games. If you are familiar with Quake, you know the rail gun to be a high precision, sniper type shot that requires dead on accuracy. Before writing this review, I just completely owned a server, with 14 impressive medals for what they consider to be impressive shots. I was never this accurate with the Logitech mx518 people, so this is tangible proof the Spawn can improve your game in FPS! The tracking quality with the latest firmware is top notch and feels smooth and deadly accurate. I loved my 518 folks, but it is now retired and I am a fan of the Spawn. You may be wondering, with such a glowing review, why the 4 stars instead of 5? Well, this mouses biggest shortcoming is its lack of custom DPI settings. You can switch between 800, 1800 and 3500 - period.Read more ›

I had been looking for a replacement for my trusted Logitech G3 for some time. Tried many mice including the popular Logitech G9, but wasn't satisfied with them. This one I'm keeping.

I use a grip that's in between a claw grip and a fingertip grip, sort of a "relaxed claw".
This mouse is perfect for that. Fingers slightly bent, with the heel of the mouse just touching the lower palm of my hand.
Just to give you an idea of the size of the mouse, my hand is about 7.75" from the tip of my middle finger to where my hand meets the wrist. My palm is about is about 4.25" long.
Using my relaxed claw grip, my fingers come to the very end of the mouse but they don't hang over the ends of the left/right buttons.
Using a normal fingertip grip (fingers almost fully extended), my middle finger does extend past the left button about 1/2".
I've read that some have needed time to adjust to the ring finger rest, but it feels completely natural to me. My ring finger just fell into place as soon as I gripped the mouse.

The buttons all have a definitive click to them, with just the right pressure; this includes the middle (wheel) button. I've found on some mice that the wheel needs so much pressure to click, that you often end up spinning the wheel while trying to press the button. This one has just the right tension and a solid click at the end. The scroll wheel itself is not a free spinning wheel, which I did not want. Each "click" or line of the scroll wheel is very precise as it ratchets forward and backward. There's no audible click as you scroll the wheel, it's more of a "thump" that you feel.

The thumb buttons are in just the right place for me, of course your thumb may vary.
