Shogun Bros Ballista MK1 8200dpi Pro Gaming mouse review

Rating: 8.0.

In the world of gaming mice brand names such as Steel Series, Logitech, Rocatt and Razer reign supreme. When we were offered a sample from a company called Shogun Bros we immediately thought of a cool new oriental themed Nintendo game.

Wacky company name aside, the new Ballista MK1 has been designed to challenge the big players, at a lower price point. We spent around a week testing this mouse and loaning it out to several competitive UK clan gamers to get other viewpoints. Is this a cheap ‘n’ nasty second choice option or a quality mouse able to stand its ground against the big players?

Shogun Bros have been hiding under the radar now for a while, making a splash at CES this year with a mouse that could be flipped over to double up a gamepad.

The Ballista MK1 however is a serious attempt to target the demanding audience who want the smoothest movement from high grade laser optics.

Can it meet the grade we expect from a high end gaming mouse?

    Looks ok, not much of a design really. quite dull looking. RAT7 looks much nicer!

    I think its a great price point, good for them!

    Have they any other products out like a keyboard? id like to see that if it uses mechanical switches

  • There is a mechanical gaming keyboard coming from Shogun Bros. I will be bringing it to the UK in the next few weeks. It has Cherry switches and is perfect for gaming. This too will also be competitively priced for a quality gamimg product

  • Optical Illusion

    good to know, I think this mouse looks good for the price. look forward to seeing a review of the keyboard.

  • Ben

    good product, i would prefer weights myself, for serious gaming its needed as one weight just dosnt suit everyone. good pricing, but it needs some revisions made IMO.
