The Finalmouse Ultralight 2 is a great gaming mouse that's ultra-lightweight like its name suggests. This honeycomb-patterned mouse is one of the lightest we've measured and has great performance. Unfortunately, you need to download third-party software to customize the DPI and the overall performance of the mouse. The default four DPI settings might not be ideal for everyone. This mouse is also very small, which isn't suited for larger hands, but it does come with 'infinityskins', which are latex grips that you can stick on the mouse to modify its size and shape.
Note: Finalmouse produces one mouse at a time and then proceeds to make a drop sale, meaning it's only available for a certain amount of time, or until stock runs out. At the time of publishing, the Ultralight 2 drop is over. This means that any model found online is coming from a third-party reseller, and not the company itself. We also had to purchase our unit via this method.
Just okay for office. The mouse is pretty small and doesn't offer great ergonomics for larger hands. However, you can customize its size using the included infinityskin. You also can't customize its programmable buttons, unless you get third-party software.
Very good for games like FPS. It's a very light mouse with excellent click latency. This mouse has pretty good performance, although you can't customize its DPI to your liking without third-party software. It's also quite small and larger hands can have some issues holding the mouse, although you can use the included infinityskin to mod the shape and form of the mouse.
Bad for MMOs. This mouse doesn't have dedicated software to let you program its buttons. Its size might also be an issue for larger hands unless you use the included infinityskin to mod the form of the mouse.
Excellent for ultra-light gaming. This mouse is one of the lightest we've tested so far and has great performance too. It's suitable for smaller hands, but people with large hands can use the infinityskin to modify the size and shape of the mouse, making it easier to use.
Poor for traveling. Although the mouse is small, it's always wired, which takes extra space and makes it a bit harder to pack.
The Finalmouse Ultralight 2 is a pretty sleek looking ultra-light gaming mouse. It has a honeycomb pattern that covers most of the design to reduce weight. It comes in a cream color with orange accents on the mouse wheel and cord. It's a pretty small mouse. If you want a very lightweight mouse that doesn't have a honey-comb pattern, check out the Razer Viper Mini.
Although it's a fairly small mouse, the Ultralight 2 is a wired-only mouse, and the cable makes it a bit harder to store it while traveling. However, this won't matter to people who are looking for a gaming mouse to use at home.
The Finalmouse Ultralight 2 is one of the lightest mice we've tested. It can get a bit heavier when using the 'infinityskin' grips, which are additional grip patterns that you can stick on your mouse. We've tested the maximum weight using the thickest ones.
The build quality is great. The material feels solid and doesn't allow for much flexibility like the Glorious Model O. Clicks feel responsive, and the mouse doesn't feel cheap and doesn't have any loose parts. The feet allow smooth and precise gliding.
The Finalmouse Ultralight 2 Cape Town has great ergonomics. It's an ambidextrous design, other than the two side buttons on the left side. The mouse is quite small, so it might not be suited for larger hands, but it does come with optional latex grips that you can put on the mouse, which helps to customize the mouse's size to your preference. If you would prefer a right-slanted ultra-light gaming mouse, check out the Glorious Model D.
Due to its small size, this mouse is better suited for medium or small hands when using the palm grip. However, note that you may still get great control if you customize the size of the mouse with the 'infinityskin'.
Small and medium hands will find the Finalmouse Ultralight 2 to be great when using the claw grip. However, larger hands might need to use the provided 'infinityskin' to customize the size of the mouse.
Without the 'infinityskin', only extra large hands feel too big for the fingertip grip. Your hand might feel too long for this smaller-sized mouse.
This mouse is wired-only.
The cable is great. It's very light, moves around easily, and is very flexible. You shouldn't feel any drag when using it, although using a bungee is still recommended to reduce the weight of the mouse.
There's no dedicated software for the Ultralight 2, so you can't program its buttons to different commands. The DPI switching button is on the top of the mouse. If having programmable buttons is important to you, then check out the Cooler Master MM720.
The Finalmouse Ultralight 2's mouse wheel is pretty standard for gaming mice. It's incremented, although you don't feel the different notches as much as other mice we've reviewed so far.
The Finalmouse Ultralight 2's click latency is great, and you shouldn't notice any delay when playing competitive video games.
Unfortunately, there's no native software from Finalmouse. However, there is a popular third-party software that allows some performance customization like DPI adjustments, polling rate adjustment, and even profile configuration. Since this isn't a dedicated software for this specific mouse, we didn't consider it.
Out-of-the-box, the Finalmouse Ultralight 2 works fully on both Windows and macOS and all buttons have a function. However, note that the third-party software we mentioned earlier in this review isn't available on macOS, so you won't be able to customize the mouse's performance.
The Finalmouse Ultralight 2 - Cape Town is a great ultra-light gaming mouse. It's noticeably smaller than some other mice and feels quite well-built. It's also a unique mouse that has 'infinityskins', which are sticky grips that you can put on the mouse to modify its shape and size, making it more suited for your grip. However, it lacks a dedicated software, which means you can't really reprogram its buttons. See our recommendations for the best wired mouse, the best gaming mouse, and the best mouse.
The Glorious Model O and the Finalmouse Ultralight 2 Cape Town are very similar performing mice, but the Cape Town is noticeably smaller and lighter. However, you can get the Model O minus, which is a smaller variant of the mouse and is more comparable to the size of the Cape Town. Also, the Glorious mice have compatible software that allows control over the performance and RGB settings, which the Finalmouse lacks, as you'll need to use third-party software.
The Razer Viper Mini is a better wired gaming mouse than the Finalmouse Ultralight 2 - Cape Town. The Mini is better for people with extra-large hands when using a fingertip grip, has a lower click latency, RGB lighting, a wider CPI range, and has software available to customize the mouse and remap the buttons. On the other hand, the Ultralight 2 is even lighter, making it a better option for fans of the lightest possible gaming experience.
The Finalmouse Ultralight 2 Cape Town is a better ultra-light gaming mouse than the Cooler Master MM710. While the MM710 is much more customizable, as it has dedicated companion software, which the Finalmouse doesn't have, the Ultralight 2 is lighter and feels better built. Both mice are on the smaller side and aren't recommended for people with larger hands.
The Finalmouse Ultralight 2 - Cape Town and the Glorious Model D are two amazing lightweight gaming mice, but for different reasons. If you want the lightest option, go for the Finalmouse, but if you prefer an ergo-shaped design with a right slant, then the Model D will be a better option.
The SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless is better than the Finalmouse Ultralight 2 - Cape Town for most uses. The SteelSeries is wireless and allows you to connect to two devices simultaneously for multitasking. Also, the SteelSeries is more customizable because it has software support for Windows and macOS, which the Finalmouse lacks. However, the Finalmouse has a better build quality, it's lighter, and its smaller size makes it better suited for small to medium-size hands regardless of grip type.
