      Looks like it shares a lot of features as the CM Inferno! Great mouse just the shape and size put me off.

      It's actually very comfortable, what about it's shape and size don't you like?

      given that what i really liked about my Logitech MX-518 was the larger size, if anything, i wish the overall size of the Sentinel series was a little bigger but that's really a preference issue imo. as for the DPI, i don't even use my Z3RO-G to the extent that it will go, as i never set it any higher than 3000.

      Joe is very picky about shape and size

      I had the Inferno for my mouse review, I have quite big hands and I was comparing the comfort to other mice such as the QPAD 5K.

      The Inferno and Sentinel have quite a different shape.

      I have very big hands and the Inferno feels perfect, how much bigger/smaller could the Sentinel be?

      LMAO @ enad

      I have very big hands

      I love that. That line a classic, lmao.

      Sentinel isn't really smaller it about the same size. it's the shape that makes it feel smaller. The indent makes it feel tiny. The semi circle "sphere" shape on the inferno makes it feel bigger.

      To clarify, the Sentinel has an indent on the left side that acts like a thumb rest. The back of the Inferno is also fatter than the Sentinel, but the Sentinel is just overall bigger in dimensions and is better for longer hands.
