Kinzu v2 Pro Up Close

The smaller brother to the Kana is the Kinzu v2 Pro. Here in limited edition silver, but also available in red and black. The standard Kinzu v2 is in yellow, white, orange and black, so you've got a lot of coordination options. Of course the downside to a shiny silver mouse in a plastic cover is you get a reflection of my orange OC3D t-shirt, but don't worry it's purely silver as you'll see in the lower photos.

Although we haven't got the two-tone cable braiding we saw on the Kana the Kinzu still has the same high quality, soft braid on the cable.

The Kinzu is very much a pared down mouse, lacking any side buttons at all. All we have is a soft plastic that nicely inverts the setup of the Kana.

The Sensei is the biggest of the three in this stable, with the Kana a few mm smaller and the Kinzu smaller still. They're by no means tiny with the Kinzu being 117mm long and the Kana 124mm.

Do you think Steelseries will ever do a left-handed mouse?Quote

Being a owner of both Kinzu V1 and V2, i can say the sensor is an improvement over the V1. Glides very smoothly over my mouse mat, allowing me to improve aiming in FPS such as BF3 (slowly improving my aim)Quote

This are both ambidextrous which I think is as close as you'll ever get. I can't think of a single left-handed only mouse off the top of my head.

With the ability to swap the buttons over in the SteelSeries Engine software, it's as left-handed as you could hope for I believe.Quote

A good 90% of left-handed gamers I know have a DeathAdder. Not saying it's a bad mouse but that it has literally zero competition which I find odd!Quote
