CM Storm Skorpion Mouse Bungee Continued
As for the iron core it is just rough cut from a bar and de-burred. They only needed to do that for handling purposes while putting these together, as you shouldn't be in here without possibly voiding the warranty.
Since all of the legs come apart at the joints it is also very helpful for travels with the Skorpion that the arm also comes off by sliding it out of the grooves on this leg. This also is needed to help get the wire in the channel when wiring the mouse to the Skorpion.
This is what I mean. It is much easier to take the arm to the mouse wire than to have to work with everything in the air. Once the cable is in at the right place, reinstall the arm on the Skorpion and you are ready for use.
As you can see the Skorpion now works as a weighted point to which the cable is held so that it can't possibly get caught as you move around the mouse pad.
If you do happen to pull the wire a bit too far, the arm is flexible and will allow you a bit of resistance before you would actually pull the Skorpion over and possibly spilling your beer, and we can't have that now, can we?
This shot is just to give you some perspective as I move back to include the Recon we just reviewed. As you can see the Skorpion is aggressive looking, but a cool addition to my desktop.
