What is the Classic-grip Range?


The Classic-grip range is all about maximizing your efficiency and productivity. This article highlights some of their key features and covers all the differences between the three models, Swiftpoint Z, Tracer, and Creator.


The features that come with all Classic-grip range mice include:
  1. Unique button placement which gives lightning fast access to 13 buttons action without shifting your grip.
  2. Main buttons are flat relative to the desk surface for ‘nudge reduction’ and higher precision.
  3. Force sensors on left click and the left fingertip button allow you to trigger actions depending on how hard you press. 
  4. Pro-gaming grade optical sensor Pixart PWM3360. 12,000 DPI, 50G.
  5. Interchangeable caps for Triggers and Fingertip buttons to suit your grip.
  6. Configuration software that comes with pre-configured profiles for popular applications within their intended use-case.
  7. Pre-configured profiles include "Action Libraries" with all shortcuts for that application. So if you want to customize them you can directly select the action you want, rather than having to find the shortcut keys for it.
  8. Pre-configured profiles are also linked to the application they are used for. So they will be automatically activated on your mouse as soon as you start using that application.
  9. Advanced configuration options provided by "Expert Mode" in the X1 Control Panel.
  10. Custom profiles can be created for any application, and linked to it so they will also switch automatically.
  11. Link your custom profiles to their intended application and our software will automatically switch to that profile when the application is in use.
  12. Braided cable.
Each model also has a different set of features which make it ideal for specific users. Check below for a brief summary of what each mouse brings to the table.
