    Default When is handedism going to be stamped out ??

    Dear Razor,


    Left Handed Mouse

    Hi there,
    Thankyou so much for producing a left handed mouse (Razer DeathAdder Left-Hand Edition) This is awesome for left handed gamers like myself.

    Are you going to produce the Naga in a left handed series as I have been searching for a mouse with this many buttons for years and your naga looks like one fine product. Is there a way to get one produced in left handed variety and how much for a special order of this kind ?

    Thank you for your time.
    Paul.

    Hi Paul,



    Thank you for contacting the Razer Store.

    Unfortunately, there is no plan to make a left-handed version of the Razer Naga at the moment but who knows what might happen in the future =)

    Hi Oliver,

    How much will it cost to have one specially made ?

    Regards
    Paul.

    Hi Paul,



    Unfortunately, we do not provide custom-made mice at the moment =(



    Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    I usually stick with hand neutral mice myself.

    It's just one of the great benefits of being in the minority.

    When I fire my rifle the shells also eject towards my face, yay.

    Either way, left handers are ~10% not sure it would be cost effective for them to make them.

    Tbh I don't think I could ever use that mouse. I would have to imagine that when you try to hit a button, you'll end up hitting either 2-3 at the same time or you'll just hit the wrong one. Anyone have any experience with that mouse to crush my fears for me?

    Things like that are expensive to invest in. Lefties are like 10% of the population, add on high end mouse users and it's likely a far smaller number, way below profit margin.

    Not only that but many leftys cant use a left mouse. I am a lefty and have been using my right arm for so long I cant imagine ever trying to switch. So even if leftys were 10% of the population some of those 10% would not use it either.

    That being said its just a plastic casing that would need to be created. I doubt it would be that expensive to offer. 10% (or 5% even) is a large number no matter how you look at it. And if you could provide a product that 10-5% of your customers would love it seems like it would be a no brainer.

    I would guess they look at the sales of their current lefty products and don't see that type of return

    I'm right handed with a pen, left handed with a mouse.

    Either mouse works fine for me.

    I noticed your problem right off the bat. You are trying to get a RAZER mouse, they are small, too light, and fragile. I tried to use one once, was a piece of garbage.

    I'm not a lefty, but I've had my Deathadder for a long time now and it hasn't failed me once.

    Never had any problems with a Razer mouse tbh. Did you repeatedly smash it against your desk? How much rage does one have to unleash on a mouse before its "fragility" becomes an important issue?

    HAHA at the "who knows what might happen in the future" bs.

    If it's that important why not practice using a mouse with your right hand?
