Sorry for the late reply. I have the V2, it's nice, but not my favorite mouse due to the larger size. If it fits your hand, it's a much better mouse than the Elite, clicks are nice, optical switches are nice. I'm not a fan of Razer at all though, and much rather use a Roccat Kone Pure Ultra, Xtrfy M4, or the Xtrfy M42 (if you like Ambi mice).

Thanks for your input. The write on the Reddit link I mentioned says this:

"The scroll wheel is worse. Specifically the surface. The scroll wheel on both the V2 and the Elite has a rubber surface. On the V2 the rubber surface is smoother and for me it doesn't feel nice at all. The Elite has these circular "bumps" and it felt nicer, because of the indentation. The scrolling itself hasn't changed a lot, but the scroll wheel on the Elite was better for me."

What's your take on that?

I can't compare it to the elite, as I never used one. I can say that the scroll wheel is the least offensive thing about the mouse, but I wouldn't say it's "good". It just... is. Now, you take the scroll wheel on the Roccat KPU or the Burst Pro? THAT is a scroll wheel you can fall in love with.

I had an original deathadder I liked, but it developed the double click issue after a few years. I tried a Logitech g403 instead and love it. It has very similar ergonomics. I’ve been using it for 3 or 4 years now.
