Following the success of their Flick G1, it’s no surprise to see how the Fnatic Gear Clutch G1 came to being.
The Clutch G1 is a right-handed mouse, with the usual buttons placed near the thumbs and just below the scroll wheel.
With the soft touch surface, the Fnatic Gear Clutch G1 is comfortable for anyone’s grip. The mouse seems to be medium in size so it should work for the general public.
The Fnatic Gear Clutch G1 is claimed to work well for both claw and palm grip players, the mouse comes with Omron switches for the main buttons, it has rubberized scroll wheel that’s RGB backlit.
The Fnatic Gear Clutch G1 comes also with Pixart 3310 optical sensor, a Holtek HT68FB560 processor and 256KB of onboard memory. With such impressive specs, the Clutch G1 is able to track between 50 and 5,000 CPI (Counts Per Inch) and has 30g max acceleration and a polling rate of up to 1,000Hz.
What I found disappointing about this mouse is that the default CPI is at only 400, 600 and 800 which is insufficient for me. At the time of this writing the software for the mouse doesn’t seem to be in the packaging and neither is it on the website, nevertheless I managed to get hold of a copy of the software and I must say that the mouse is impressive once you get it to work to your liking.
The software is great, the interface is simple and easy to use and once you get the CPI settings to your liking then it’s time to frag away! Don’t expect much from the customization part either because there’s really nothing much to customize about the RGB colored scroll wheel.
What’s more important is that the mouse is well designed and feels right to the grip, though I must say that it felt a tad too big for my small hands but even so it worked like a charm and I had no problem getting accustomed to it, in fact I didn’t suffer any form of performance drop at all!
The Fnatic Gear Clutch G1 Gaming Mouse retails at RM 249, you get a mouse with good build quality, great specs and a neat software to enhance the user experience.
