Sharkoon FiregliderIntroduction

The Sharkoon Fireglider is the most tragically whimsical name I’ve ever heard a mouse being given. When your friends ask you, “So, what mouse are you using?”, the answer “Sharkoon Fireglider” is not one you can give with a straight face. Don’t bring up its slogan either, “Procure the best advantage possible with the SHARKOON FireGlider!” That’s right, “procure” it.

After they’ve stopped laughing and trolling, you can hit them with your riposte: “It’s actually pretty good! It’s got a high DPI sensor, a triple click button and it’s programmable.”

And if they give it a go, they’ll see behind the silly name is a surprisingly competent gaming mouse. Sharkoon’s website has a boatload of features and specifications, so I may as well put them down here as anywhere:
