Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse for PC and Mac
Play to win with the Mad Catz R.A.T. 7. Uncompromising, unparalleled, and unmatched, the R.A.T. 7 helps you play like the pros, combining state-of-the-art technology with a jaw-dropping array of customizable features to produce the next step in the evolution of the mouse.
Perfect your grip
How do you hunt? Whether you 'palm' the mouse or 'claw' it, the Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 can quickly and easily adapt by adjusting in length to suit your hand size and grip style. In addition, the Thumb Panel moves forwards, backwards, and even pivots outwards to provide a comfortable platform from which all thumb buttons are easily accessible.
Lightweight aluminum chassis
Strong yet nimble, the solid metal frame forms the core of the Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 for enhanced rigidity.
True 6400 DPI laser sensor
The Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse's new-generation 'twin-eye' laser sensor reads each axis separately and tracks up to a stunning six meters per second with pinpoint accuracy. Pro gamers who prefer low sensitivity with high movement speed will always experience correct tracking and precision.
Custom weight system
Like it light or heavy? Maybe you change the weight to suit your game? No matter, the Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 has you covered. Add or subtract up to five 6-gram weights in an instant to obtain the perfect weight for a perfect feel. And when not in use, the weights can be safely stored in the supplied weight storage container.
Precision aim mode
Hit your target the first time every time. Use the included Mad Catz software to set your desired Precision Aim speed (mouse sensitivity), then hold down the Precision Aim button to slow down mouse movement to a level that works for you. You can even use the software to assign programmable features to the Precision Aim button, and then use it to execute keyboard commands like macros and keybindings - - a deadly weapon that will hit your enemy exactly where it hurts the most.
Take control of your games
With the included programming software, you can create an unlimited number of profiles. For example, create a unique profile for each game or character, or for different builds (sniper, tank, healer, and more). Within each profile, you can customize you DPI settings, set Precision Aim sensitivity, create powerful macros and set keybindings. Each profile allows for 18 user-definable commands via six programmable buttons over three modes.
18 user-definable commands via 3 Mad Catz modes
Toggle between three individual Mad Catz R.A.T. modes at the touch of a button. Change sensitivity or programmable button actions in an instant and gain immediate access to a mind-boggling 18 commands!
6 programmable buttons
Combine the programmable buttons with standard left and right mouse buttons and it all adds up to eight buttons with which you can punish your competition. Assign your choice of key gaming actions to programmable buttons to create your own custom profiles.
Customise your DPI settings
Four user-definable DPI settings range from 25 to 6400 and the DPI button lets you easily cycle through your custom settings.
Interchangeable pinkie grips and palm rests
- One Pinkie Grip / One Palm Rest featuring the same soft-touch finish as found on the body of the Mad Catz R.A.T.
- One Pinkie Grip / One Palm Rest with a rubber inlay for enhanced grip
- One Pinkie Grip that offers a 'wing shaped' design, allowing you to rest your pinkie finger during play for increased grip
- One Palm Rest that is 4mm thicker to increase the height of the R.A.T.

The main selling point for the R.A.T range, other than it looking like the Batmobile crashed into a Countach, is that they are so adjustable. Personally, I feel that they've almost made it too adjustable, throwing more bits in the box than you really need. Each to their own there, I guess. I was more than happy to stick with the standard build and adjust them, rather than bolting on all of the other replacement parts.
I've had a bit of RSI in the past, from a mixture of working in IT and gaming, so getting a mouse to fit is a major help with that. I have big hands and most mice are too small for me and mean that my tendons are taught when I hold the mouse, rather than being loose when I naturally drop my hand on it. The advantage for me with the R.A.T is that I can extend out the back of the mouse to fit the palm of my hand, angle out the left side where my thumb sits and add weights to the thing to make it heavy. The only thing I wish it could also do is adjust the angle of the whole top of the mouse by 20 degrees, so the left is higher than the right. The hand naturally sits at an angle and having to make it flat tightens the tendons in your forearm. A number of Microsoft mice have addressed this, but sadly not here. Maybe in a future version...Read more ›
On first arrival, the box is solid and represents the price tag. Inside you'll find a well packaged mouse and the removable palm wrests and pinkie grips. First impressions show a well built, high quality mouse. The surface is a nice soft touch rubber coating which despite not doing anything to cover fingerprints, is pleasant to touch. Mouse buttons 1 & 2 are nicely balanced and the wheel feels robust. The two thumb buttons however feel mushy and do not offer the tactile feedback you'd expect. They are also slightly too far back - I have small hands and if this posed a problem for me, It is likely worse for those of you with normal sized hands!
Onto its selling point. The mouse offers 3 palm grips: One standard, one slightly raised and one with a grippy rubber surface. These are easily removable and slide up and down to adjust the overall length - Very nice. The thumb grip is on a hinge and can swing out to the left but doing so makes the mouse unbearably wide for small hands. The pinkie grips requre an allen key to remove but its a quick job. In stock form it is quite heavy, but there are a series of circle weights attached at the bottom - The petruding silver part you can see in the picture allows these to be removed easily and reduce the weight slightly.
Compared to every other mouse I own (alot) the R.A.T.7 is seriously wide which posed problems for me and others in my family who were interested in it from the appearance.Read more ›
I have large hands so with the back fully extended my palm can comfortably rest and my fingers can click without being curled (so I can use it all day without any discomfort) - the shape looks potentially uncomfortable but with all of that adjust-ability it can fit any shape hand (you aren't in contact with any of the irregular edges)
DPI settings are brilliant and switch instantly - can be adjusted with software so you can set some more and less sensitive options (there are 4).
The quick buttons and sideways scroll are very useful - the red one on the side is perfectly placed, has ideal weighting and does have responsive feedback, same goes for the grey bar buttons (but don't bother setting any functions to the back one as you cannot reach it while in a competitive environment, but for web browsing the sizes mean that you can't accidentally go one way when you want to go the other). The functions can be changed to 1 of 3 settings stored on the mouse - changed by tapping the light to the left of the left mouse button.
The design looks amazing too
