Take the lead and lose the wire with the top-of-the-range Mad Catz R.A.T. 9 Wireless Gaming Mouse. The power and performance of the R.A.T. 7 combine with next-generation wireless technology for an unsurpassed gaming experience.
How do you hunt? Whether you 'palm' the mouse or 'claw' it, the Mad Catz R.A.T. 9 can quickly and easily adapt by adjusting in length to suit your hand size and grip style. In addition, the Thumb Panel moves forwards, backwards, and pivots outwards, giving you perfect positioning for effortless gaming.
Strong yet nimble, the solid metal frame forms the core of the Mad Catz R.A.T. 9 for enhanced rigidity.
A staggering 1ms response time ensures that your lightning-fast reactions remain lightning fast.
Keeps gaming as long as you do! The Mad Catz R.A.T. 9 is a 24/7 wireless beast, shipping with a pair of custom built lithium-ion battery cells. One powers the R.A.T. while the other one charges in the dock, allowing you to perform a 'hot swap' whenever and wherever needed.
The Mad Catz R.A.T. 9 Gaming Mouse's new-generation 'twin-eye' laser sensor reads each axis separately and tracks up to a stunning six meters per second with pinpoint accuracy. Pro gamers who prefer low sensitivity with high movement speed will always experience correct tracking and precision.
Like it light or heavy? Want to change the weight to suit your game? No matter, the Mad Catz R.A.T. 9 has you covered. Add or subtract up to five 6-gram weights in an instant to obtain the perfect weight for a perfect feel. And when not in use, the weights can be safely stored in the supplied weight storage container.
Hit your target the first time, every time. Use the included Mad Catz Programming Software to set your desired Precision Aim speed (mouse sensitivity), then hold down the Precision Aim button to slow down mouse movement to a level that works for you. You can even use the software to assign programmable features to the Precision Aim button, and then use it to execute keyboard commands like macros and keybindings - a deadly weapon that will hit your enemy exactly where it hurts the most.
With the included programming software, you can create an unlimited number of profiles. For example, create a unique profile for each game and/or characters or for different builds (sniper, tank, healer, and more). Within each profile, you can customize your DPI settings, set Precision Aim sensitivity, create powerful macros and set keybindings. Each profile allows for 18 user-definable commands via six programmable buttons over three modes.
The R.A.T. 9 features six programmable buttons including the scroll wheel. Each button can be easily programmed to perform complex macros or simple key commands. You have the power to customize your R.A.T. for your games.
Four user-definable DPI settings range from 25 to 6400 and the DPI button lets you easily cycle through your custom settings.
Get the R.A.T. that is right for you. The Mad Catz R.A.T. 9 Gaming Mouse is available in both matte and gloss black, racing red, and white.
Pros: Excellent tracking, and great button features. I love the customizable ergonomics of this mouse, and being able to add weight makes this the mouse for me. I applaud having the battery charger act as a 'dock' for the spare battery, as well as a receiver for the wireless mouse signal. Mouse looks great and is always a conversation piece. This mouse just feels good to use. The hardware feels solid and reliable. It's nice to be able to adjust the mouse to the contours of your hand.
Cons: This is barely a con, just being nit-picky and is something that can use improvement. Mediocre battery life, but it's not a deal breaker.
Other Thoughts: One battery charge usually lasts me 4-5 one hour sessions. It's not such a big deal to swap batteries. To other reviewers claiming "nightmare" scenarios changing batteries.......this is not the case. It takes a few seconds to swap the battery and click the new one in place. The second battery is always charged when I need it, so I don't have much issue with this at all. Another word to counter a bad review I've read, wrist support isn't provided by a mouse, you need to get an ergonomically correct wrist rest for wrist support. You've got to be careful when reading reviews because a lot of times you just get the complaining, whiners. I've tech savy and posting the truth. Excellent mouse, I would buy again.

Why Rat? Whyyyyyy???
Pros: - Nice rubberized finish
Cons: - Too Many To List
Other Thoughts: I really, wanted, I REALLY WANTED to keep, own, be proud to own one of these mice. It woke on it's own and convinced me completely otherwise!!! It was a nightmare as soon as I connected this mouse to my pc. Everything installed properly, and I thought, yay, all is well. Until i entered a game and my mouse cursor started lagging!... Not Exeptable!. I lost, left the game, proceeded to troubleshooting all the possibilities. Uninstalled any and all other user interface devices. No Go. As I knew, right from the beginning. I also noticed that the receiver's signal is very weak. 12 centimeters away from the mouse, the cursor would lagg. Receiver right on top of mouse, lagg is still there just not as disturbing. If this can be of any help to the makers of this product. I actually think the laser is fine here, in this model. And what was causing the issues for me was that loss signal type of effect. The mouse would slow down to half the speed I was mooving it at. Constantly.!!! Unacceptable. When I clicked on the desktop, lets say a button, the click would jump up and right or something lilke that and I failed to hit the button I was aiming for... Also Unacceptable....
