Having used the Corsair Glaive for a number of weeks, I have nothing but praise for its attractive and appropriately sized design. It fits wonderfully in my hand, striking an effective balance between size, weight and overall aesthetic. Coming with a trio of interchangeable thumb grips, you can spend time finding a design that best fits your comfort needs.
I had no issue with the default choice, although others offer a larger surface area upon which you can rest your weary thumbs. It’s worth noting travel speed is diminished slightly using the larger grips, but the difference is so minuscule most gamers won’t care too much.
Regardless, having three distinct grips to fit different play-styles is welcome, and one of many versatile features the Corsair Glaive boasts. Above the magnetic thumb grip you’ll find a duo of buttons used for swiftly switching between web pages and other applications. If I’m honest, they’re a bit bulky – a rare unsightly blemish on an otherwise fantastic mouse design.
