The Clutch 2 is designed for the relaxed grip and claw grip gamers out there, and even with various hand sizes to accommodate, the layout is on point enough to be able to say that we do not feel that hand size matters much with this mouse. The shape is ergonomic and comfortable for hours of use, and even though the side grip is tough to feel under your thumb and fingers, it works wet or dry. There was never a time where we lost our grip on the Clutch 2. The scroll wheel is stiffer than most, which ensures weapon selection is accurate, and the placement of the profile button is such that accidental pressing of it is of no concern.
Not only was the exterior redesigned to improve its feel, but the components also play a big part in things too. Upgrading the sensor is the most obvious improvement inside, but it's not the only important one. The PixArt 3360 is a terrific starting point, but the MCU used ensures that everything seen by the sensor and all clicks on the mouse gets to the PC with as low a latency as they can muster, making for a zero-lag experience. Fifty million clicks of the main buttons are a whole lot of clicks and should enable the Clutch 2 to outlive its two-year warranty. The secondary switches, while not as well known, have the same feel, which delivered a unified feeling when in use. Let's be blunt about the Clutch 2. From every angle, in all aspects of design and layout, even the most discerning gamer would be hard-pressed to find fault with this product, and given enough time to use it, would likely swap to this from just about any mouse they currently own.
In all that we were given, everything we covered about the Clutch 2, and all the love we have shown for this product thus far, there is still one more fantastic thing to add. The fact that you will not have to fork out fistfuls of money to get one is undoubtedly appealing too. No matter which side of the pond you are on, you only need 59.99 to get the Clutch 2 into your hands. While most times we see packaging filled with marketing hype and fluff, we do have to concede that Fnatic did not oversell the Clutch 2 in any way.
Our gaming did improve, and we got better for sure. Our daily grind was also cut down with the optional programming of a second profile for image editing and such too. All in all, the Clutch 2 Optical Gaming Mouse from Fanatic Gear is one of the best mice we have had the pleasure to use. If we were in the market for a new gaming partner to go under our right hand, the Fnatic Gear Clutch 2 is more than deserving of contention to likely be the best thing you do for gaming if you are looking to level up your performance, accuracy, and kills.
