Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2015-12-16

The small weights have a rubberized layer around them and are marked with their weight value:




If we look on the insides of the side grips, we will discover that these feature magnets for mounting:




The RIPJAWS MX780 mouse does feature both black and metallic paint plastic on the top and laterals, while the inner core is made of aluminum; a first look might fool you a little that the top and laterals are made of aluminum too because of the high quality finish:
