Sandberg Destroyer Flexweight Mouse: Design And Comfort

A modern design suited to modern setups, the Flexweight mouse isn’t bad in the looks department with curves in all the right places and a pretty sweet looking LED lighting system.

The LED system contains 6 different colors and has been designed to run under the Sandberg logo and a series of clear plastics strips ensuring it isn’t overdone.

A matt black finished has been used all around the mouse body with the exception of a few buttons which make us of a gloss black finish instead.

It’s pretty clear to see that this mouse has been designed with right-handed use in mind thanks to a thumb curve that takes residence on the left-hand side of the mouse.

The main attraction of the Destroyer Flexweight is actually right there in the name. A weight compartment at the bottom of the mouse that is home to five removable weights each weighing 5g each. This allows you to have greater control over your setup for those games where a lighter or heavier mouse could come in handy. Without any of the weights installed the mouse weighs 139g so it isn’t too heavy on its own.

Sandberg Destroyer Flexweight Mouse review

A slight issue I have with the aforementioned weight compartment is that the weights are a pain to remove. I’ve usually had to go and find a small flat edged item to gently pry weights out of this thing when in reality I should be able to just lift them with two fingers.

As for comfort, the Destroyer Flexweight is rather comfortable as you’d expect from a gaming mouse. The main feature that leads to this level of comfort is in my opinion that left-sided thumb curve which allows my thumb to rest easily. There are a few little niggles such as button location, particularly that of the button which sits on the left-hand side of the mouse towards the front meaning that gamers with smaller fingers may have trouble reaching it.

Sandberg Destroyer Flexweight Mouse: In Use

Using the mouse across a different range of games has yielded some decent results that show a fast and smooth experience, coupled with excellent response times as you’d expect from any decent mouse.

The DPI which has six settings ranging from 800 to 4200 DPI is quick and easy to change thanks to the DPI selection buttons located on the top of the mouse which allows you to quickly and effortlessly adjust DPI up or down in the heat of the moment, allowing for swiftness depending on the scenario.

Sandberg Destroyer Flexweight Mouse: Conclusion

With an RRP of £27.99, Sandberg has got a real winner on its hands with the Destroyer Flexweight mouse which offers a few things not always found in lower-priced mice such as a six-level DPI system and adjustable weights. If you’re in the market for a gaming mouse but have a tight budget, I’d seriously recommend this offering over the usual generic rubbish you’d find on Amazon.
