    I'm sure the lefties will like it. Probably the other manufacturers will follow suit now. Assuming that it sells well.

    "I am a southpaw myself and feel truly excited to have a mouse that fits perfectly in my left hand. There is really no substitute for gaming with your naturally dominant hand."

    Well its a bit late,I'm a leftie and have used a standard right handed mouse for years and i dont think i can be ars£d to learn everything over again.This is about as much use as a c()&k in a convent.

    Aren't most Razer mice ambidextrous? Most lefties that I know use a right-handed mouse anyway...

    As a lefthanded person living in a righthanded world for >50yrs and over 20 yrs gaming I've never had any problems with any mouse.

    Well, the Mamba, and DeathAdder (and etc, like Naga) aren't.

    And I guess that the DeathAdder drives quite a lot of sales.

    Providing not many companies make one, they could be onto a winner here. If people copy them and they get lots of competition, then the sales won't make it worth it.
    What is is? Only one in ten are lefties?

    I'm a lefty and its about time, currently I use a bog standard ambidextrous mouse, it will be nice to have a bit of premium in my left paw for a change.

    Jolly good show Razer!

    "Leftie gamers have long been requesting that we develop a gaming grade mouse that is designed exclusively for the left-handed gaming community and we really value the feedback we receive from our fans,"

    Way to respond to consumer demand in a timely manner....how much feedback does a company need? :)

    Im a leftie but have always used my mouse with my right hand from day 1 of using a computer. Ive got a Logitech MX Revolution that's very right hand specific. Using any mouse with my left hand just feels wrong?

    Sufficient volume to ensure that they have economic gains.

    Well, it's about time. I've been using a MX 610 lefty since they launched, and have exactly zero desire to switch back to right-handed mice. I can't claim to be a fan of the razer shape, but hopefully this will serve as yet another push for more left-handed mice.

    What a great mouse to give the left hand treatment to.

    For the record...the Razer Copperhead has been designed to fit both left and right handed people. :)

    i can see the point, but i can't say i'm too interested. i'm left-handed and i've over the years i've ended up getting used to using a right-handed mouse. the thought of anything different kind of puzzles me, haha.

    I almost forgot that... it feels so comfortable in my right hand... with ambidextrous mice of this quality already out there I can't really see a need for a left mouse. Especially not one so similar to the Copperhead. Maybe a lefty Naga or something...
