Out of the Blue

An interesting thing I learned from my new G9 mouse with the weights is how unnecessary weights are in a mouse, for myself, at least. I assumed at first that heavy would be better, but quickly found loading it with weight actually caused me wrist and hand pain, and further experimentation proved that I was happiest with no weights whatsoever, so maybe I need to look into filling this thing with helium.

I've never understood why people put weights in mice. That just kills your wrists...
Does anyone actually put the weights in? I don't use the weights in my G5. I thought it was just a gimmicky selling point since the Logitech G5 (wired) and the G7 (wireless) share the same body, they needed something to fill the space of the battery compartment on the wired G5.

I wish they would have found a way to seal the hole. After ~2 years of gaming with it, the scroll wheel quit working. I took it apart and the thing was full of lint and stuff that made its way in through that hole. The mouse wheel was caked with so much stuff it was blocking the optical sensor that detects its movement. I cleaned it all out, and it's like a new mouse again. It brought back memories of practically weekly cleanings when I used to use a ball mouse.
