Before this product arrived at my door I had given little thought to using any sort of wire tending device for my mouse. I have seen the various versions of this basic concept, but since I have used large desks for years, wires tend to have room to lie around, and not causing me too much issue. There was a time however when I was on a smaller desk, and I can remember buying a new mouse and being excited to use it. Shredding the box open to get the mouse on the desk, I didn't take any time to re-bend the wiring; I just plugged it in and started up my favorite game. After a bit of moving around and changing games to use the mouse in more aspects, I did find the cabling, as it bends, would get hooked on the back of the desk, and sometimes the weight of the cord would even try to take my mouse off the back on occasion.
This new device from Cooler Master will not only rid you of those sort of issues, there is the fact that this weighted cord tender will also act as a line of defense of accidentally dropping the mouse on the floor off the front of the desk, or even worse, yanking out the USB cord as the weight of the mouse yanks on the cable.
While a large rock placed on a cable may do the same thing (just kidding), the device we are about to see offers a unique styling that lends to its name, and this device is able to be broken down into smaller components very easily so that you can transport this along with your mouse and keyboard when at a LAN or a buddies house.
Cooler Master, well more specifically the CM Storm line has delivered the Skorpion mouse bungee system for us to have a look into and see if the features and benefits are there to be had. I for one really don't know what to expect up front, as I have never used such a device, but the Skorpion, just looking at it, I like the design and would have no issues with it on my desk.
Let's see if the Skorpion delivers on what is supposed to do and see if the features and the Skorpion are worth purchasing to help keep you mouse on point in the heat of a battle.
