Cooler Master’s MM720 will seem quite familiar to quite a lot of gamers. That’s not surprising because it’s quite literally a legendary mouse reborn. The original version of the mouse was released almost a decade ago and was known as the Cooler Master Storm “Spawn”. It became an extremely popular mouse among claw grip users and we’re pretty sure that there’s quite a few still in use out there right now even. Now, Cooler Master have brought it back in the form of a more modernised version, packing some great features into a compact and extremely lightweight casing.

Now that the technical specs are out of the way, let’s delve right into why the MM720 still outshines its competition as a claw grip mouse. First up, the light weight. Now while this is entirely up to personal preference, there are plenty of gamers out there who prefer their mice to be as light as possible. Coming in at an incredibly miniscule 49 grams, the MM720 offers gamers effortless glide with the mouse. If you’re a fan of heavier gaming mice, avert your eyes from this product and look at Cooler Master’s or another manufacturer’s more traditional range of mice. This ain’t for you if you want a chunky brick of a mouse.
The low weight combined with the PTFE mouse feet, located at the bottom of the mouse, ensure that the MM720 can be moved with ease across your gaming surface. In the two weeks of using the device, we experienced zero problems with drag. Using the mouse took some getting used to due to the lighter weight but once we acclimatized to it, it felt great. Almost too good in fact.
The mouse has been optimised for a claw grip with a convenient finger rest on the right hand side for added comfort and control.
The honeycomb design on the mouse surface definitely contributes to its strength...
If you’re looking for a mouse that won’t break the bank, look no further.
