The G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition is has a honeycomb design that makes it lightweight, but it still feels well-built and exhibits almost no flexing or squeaking when being used. It's ambidextrous and can be used with any grip type, though it's a bit on the larger side and may be too big for people with small hands. The performance is excellent, with an adjustable CPI and polling rate, so you can customize the mouse to perfectly suit your preferences.

Our Verdict

6.9 Office/Multimedia

The Hati is a good mouse for office use. It has excellent ergonomics and should be comfortable for everyone except people with small hands. It can be used with any grip type, and feels quite well-built, making it a good choice for all-day use. It also has two programmable side buttons which can help you get extra work done quickly.

Pros
  • Exceptional performance.
  • Well-built and ergonomic design.
  • Ambidextrous fit will be good for all grip types.
Cons
  • Bulky design may be too large for people with small hands.
8.3 Video Games (FPS)

The G-Wolves Hati is a good mouse for FPS games. It has excellent ergonomics, exceptional CPI and polling rate performance, and all its buttons are programmable. Unfortunately, it's quite large, and people with small hands will likely find it hard to reach all the buttons or get a comfortable grip.

Pros
  • Exceptional performance.
  • Well-built and ergonomic design.
  • Ambidextrous fit will be good for all grip types.
Cons
  • Bulky design may be too large for people with small hands.
7.2 Video Games (MMO)

This mouse is good for MMO games. While it doesn't have as many extra buttons as some dedicated MMO mice, all of the buttons it does have are programmable. It also has excellent ergonomics and should be comfortable for most people to use for extended periods. Unfortunately, it's on the larger side, and people with small hands will likely have a tough time reaching all the buttons or getting a comfortable grip.

Pros
  • Exceptional performance.
  • Well-built and ergonomic design.
  • Ambidextrous fit will be good for all grip types.
Cons
  • Bulky design may be too large for people with small hands.
8.7 Ultra-Light Gaming

This mouse is great for ultra-light gaming. While its weight isn't customizable, it's quite lightweight due to its honeycomb design and has excellent ergonomics and CPI performance, making it a good gaming mouse. Unfortunately, it's a fairly large mouse, which likely won't be comfortable for people with small hands.

Pros
  • Exceptional performance.
  • Well-built and ergonomic design.
  • Ambidextrous fit will be good for all grip types.
Cons
  • Bulky design may be too large for people with small hands.

Pros
  • Exceptional performance.
  • Well-built and ergonomic design.
  • Ambidextrous fit will be good for all grip types.
Cons
  • Bulky design may be too large for people with small hands.

Test Results

Lighting Color No Lighting

The G-Wolves Hati mouse looks similar to most other ultra-light gaming mice, with the same honeycomb plastic pattern on top, though it doesn't have it on the side like Finalmouse Ultralight 2 or the Cooler Master MM710. It comes in a variety of colors, including some with gradients, which is a nice touch that makes it stand out a bit. The variant we tested fades from grey to white. The matte finish also feels nice in the hand and gives you a good grip.

Like most gaming mice, this mouse isn't the most portable option. It may not fit in most laptop cases, though this won't be an issue for people looking for a gaming mouse for their desk setup.

The G-Wolves Hati mouse is fairly light, though it's heavier than some other ultra-light mice we've tested, like the Finalmouse Ultralight 2. The weight can't be customized, other than by adding the optional grips or feet that come with the mouse, though this doesn't increase the weight by a noticeable amount. If you want something even lighter, check out the Glorious Model D Minus.

Build Quality

The G-Wolves Hati mouse feels very well-built. It's made of hard plastic and has practically no flex, making it feel very solid, even with the honeycombed plastic. The L/R click buttons have a slight wobble when you shake the mouse, though this likely won't be noticeable in normal use. For a sturdier-feeling ultra-lightweight gaming mouse, check out the Glorious Model O Minus or the Cooler Master MM711.

The Hati's ergonomics are outstanding and it has a fairly straightforward, ambidextrous design. Unfortunately, it's a fairly large mouse which likely won't be suitable for people with smaller hands. On the upside, its design makes it suitable for any grip type for people with medium to extra-large hands. It also comes with additional latex grips for the sides and L/R buttons if you prefer having extra grip. There is also a more ergonomic shaped model, called the G-Wolves Skoll, but we haven't reviewed it yet. For a similar lightweight gaming mouse with a right-slanted design, check out the Glorious Model D or the ROCCAT Kone Pro.

Update 06/22/2020: For consistency, we've retested the comfort of using a palm grip for small hands. The review has been updated, though no scores changed.

The G-Wolves Hati works well for everyone when using a palm grip. However, it's a big large so some with small hands might be better off with a smaller mouse like Finalmouse Ultralight 2 or the Glorious Model O-.

The Hati we tested uses the Pixart PMW3360 sensor. There's also another model available with the 3389 sensor, though we aren't sure of the difference in performance. If you're interested in a similar gaming mouse that lets you adjust the CPI more precisely by increments of 50, check out the ROCCAT Kone Pure Ultra.

The Hati has six buttons, all of which are programmable, which is good. It has an L/R click, two buttons on the left side, the CPI switching button on top, and the scroll wheel is also clickable. If you're interested in a gaming mouse with hot-swappable left and right-click switches, check out the SteelSeries Prime.

Update 01/10/2020: We previously stated this mouse had mediocre click latency. After updating its firmware, we have updated the review to reflect its greatly improved click latency performance.

The Hati's click latency is great. It's low enough that even more serious gamers shouldn't notice any latency issues.

If you want a similar mouse with lower click latency, check out the Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury.

The G-Wolves Hati 3360 software is great, though it isn't the easiest to use. This Windows-only software allows you to adjust the mouse's CPI and polling rate, as well as customize all six buttons. The customization can also be saved to the mouse's onboard memory so it'll carry over to other PCs, though unfortunately not Macs. If you want a mouse that has software support for macOS, check out the SteelSeries Aerox 3.

While the Hati is compatible with both Windows and Mac, you can't reprogram any of the buttons on Mac and will be stuck using the default assignments. Even if you customize the buttons on a Windows machine and switch to a Mac, you'll lose your customization.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

This mouse is available in many different color combinations and in a small or medium size. Also, it's available with two different sensors. We tested the model with the PMW 3360 sensor and don't know how this would compare to the PMW 3389, but we don't expect the results to be significantly different.

Compared To Other Mice

The G-Wolves Hati mouse is one of the biggest ultra-light gaming mice we've reviewed. It isn't recommended for people with small hands, unless you use a palm grip. Its performance is quite amazing, although there's a model variant with a newer sensor too. This mouse has an amazing lightweight cable. See our recommendations for the best mouse, the best wired mouse, and the best gaming mouse.

Glorious Model O

The Glorious Model O and the G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition are similar ultra-light gaming mice. They weigh about the same and have the same sensor. The G-Wolves' body is a bit shorter, and the Glorious features RGB lighting.

Glorious Model D

The Glorious Model D and the G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition are excellent ultra-light gaming mice. They're similarly sized, but the Glorious will be better for a claw or palm grip due to its ergonomic slanted design, while the ambidextrous design of the G-Wolves is better for fingertip grip users. The Glorious' cable is slightly better, but the G-Wolves doesn't seem to have any flex to its body like the Glorious has.

G-Wolves Hati HT-S ACE Edition

The G-Wolves Hati HT-S ACE Edition is a smaller version of the G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition, but the specific versions we tested also have several noteworthy differences. The Small is significantly lighter and has better quality mouse feet. It has a better sensor that allows you to more precisely adjust the CPI within a broader range, has LED lights within the honeycomb body that display what CPI setting you're using, and a polling rate button on the underside; these are two features that the Medium lacks. On the other hand, the Medium has lower click latency.

Glorious Model O-

The Glorious Model O- is slightly better for ultra-light gaming than the G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition. The Glorious is much lighter, feels better-built, and glides around more smoothly. However, the G-Wolves feels more comfortable and has an extra programmable input.

XTRFY M42

The XTRFY M42 and the G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition are both excellent wired ultra-light gaming mice with ambidextrous shapes. The XTRFY is lighter, and it has modular back panels, but unfortunately, it only has eight preset CPI options. On the other hand, the G-Wolves has companion software, which the XTRFY lacks, and you can set the CPI by increments of 100.

HK Gaming Mira-M

The G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition and the HK Gaming Mira-M are excellent ultra-lightweight gaming mice. The G-Wolves is marginally lighter and has a lower lift-off distance. It also has a slightly lower click latency. On the other hand, the HK Gaming feels sturdier and has better quality mouse feet. It also has a higher maximum CPI and RGB lighting, which the G-Wolves lacks. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types and most hand sizes. However, neither mouse is very well-suited for small hands, though the HK Gaming is slightly more accomodating for small hands using a claw grip.

Glorious Model D-

The Glorious Model D- is a better ultra-light gaming mouse than the G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition. The Glorious is lighter, suitable for small hands using the claw grip, has lower click latency, and glides around better. However, the G-Wolves has a lower lift-off distance and a wider CPI range.

Cooler Master MM710

The Cooler Master MM710 is a better mouse for ultra-light gaming than the G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition. The Cooler Master is lighter and has a higher CPI. On the other hand, the G-Wolves feels better built and has lower click latency. While the G-Wolves can be used with any grip type for anyone except those with small hands, the Cooler Master isn't for people with larger hands.

SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless

The SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless and the G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition are very similar. They're both ultra-lightweight mice with an ambidextrous shape and honeycomb body, except the SteelSeries is wireless. The SteelSeries' wireless connectivity, multi-device pairing feature, and macOS compatibility make it better for productivity. The G-Wolves has a better build quality, and its longer body makes it more suitable for those with large hands using a palm grip.

XTRFY M4 RGB

The G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition is marginally better than the XTRFY M4 RGB. The G-Wolves is lighter and much more customizable because it has software support. However, the XTRFY has a better build quality, and its high-quality feet provide a smoother glide.

HK Gaming Mira-S

The G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition and the HK Gaming Mira-S are both excellent ultra-lightweight gaming mice with honeycomb shells and nearly identical weights. The HK Gaming feels sturdier and has better quality mouse feet. It also has a higher CPI range and a more consistent sensor. On the other hand, the G-Wolves has a lower lift-off distance and lower click latency. Both mice are suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes, but the HK Gaming is more suitable for smaller hands, while the G-Wolves is more accommodating to larger hands.

SteelSeries Aerox 3

The SteelSeries Aerox 3 and the G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition are very much alike. They're both wired mice with an ambidextrous design and a right-handed button layout. However, the G-Wolves' slightly longer body and taller back make it more comfortable for those with large hands using a palm grip. The G-Wolves is lighter and has a higher-quality cable, but its feet aren't as smooth as the SteelSeries'. It also has a wider sensitivity range and a lower lift-off distance. The SteelSeries has more programmable inputs and software support for macOS.

Marsback Zephyr RGB

The G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition and the Marsback Zephyr RGB are wired gaming mice with comparable performance. The G-Wolves is lighter and has somewhat lower click latency. It also has customization software, which the Marsback lacks. On the other hand, the Marsback feels sturdier and has a more flexible cable and better-quality mouse feet. It also has a higher maximum CPI, but it only has six preset CPI settings. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes.

XTRFY MZ1 – Zy’s Rail

The G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition and the XTRFY MZ1 – Zy’s Rail are both impressive ultra-light gaming mice. The G-Wolves has a more precisely adjustable CPI, a much lower click latency, and software for customization and button remapping compatible with Windows. It's well-suited for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes. On the other hand, the XTRFY has a somewhat higher maximum CPI, a more flexible cable, and better mouse feet. It's ideal for all hand sizes using a fingertip grip and suitable for small hands using a palm grip.
