There’s a new type of gaming mouse on the market: the ultra-light. These lightweight mice use honeycomb designs and other measures to cut mass wherever possible, making for a more manoeuvrable mouse that’s easier to aim. Following the first releases by specialists like Glorious and Finalmouse, many bigger brands have now made ultra-light mice of their own with new sizes, shapes and features. Some of these mice even forgo the holey look, with internal modifications to bring weight down and an intact outer shell. After extensive testing of every ultra-light mouse in FPS games like Valorant and CSGO, we’re ready to make our recommendations.
Note: for the purposes of this article, we consider an ultra-light mouse as any mouse that weighs 80 grams or below – although the lightest mice often weigh considerably less. Both honeycomb and traditional body gaming mice are eligible for inclusion. For comparison’s sake, most standard mice weigh at least 100 grams; the popular Logitech G502 weighs over 120 grams.
