Time for the Re-Spawn ?

Recommended Posts

Dear Cooler-Master,


I'm a long time user of the CM Storm Spawn.  Been using it for a decade.  I even own two of them.  I dread the day they will die on me.

If that day ever came, I thought I'd buy a Xornet, but I see now they've been discontinued too, replaced by the MM520.


We all understand some adjustments are required to make a product evolve.  Attempts to make it better.

However like many, I feel the MM520 is going in the wrong direction with the body changes.  In my opinion, making a longer/bigger evolution doesn't make sense for Claw-Grip.


If the target audience for this product line is indeed the claw-grip types... then I hope the next iteration brings back a design much closer to the Spawn/Xornet.


The CM Storm Spawn remains the unequalled legendary mouse for the following reasons:

- its wide-body is comfortable for claw-grip 

- the ring-finger rest was revolutionary,

- the signature grippy sides are perfect for locking between thumb and pinky

- the buttons were conveniently placed out of the way for the claw-grip, yet close enough for use

- the asymmetric shape made it more ergonomic

- the overall size was medium-small, short enough to move under the claw of most users, even with smaller hands


Is it time for the ReSpawn yet? (credit Hyp0xia)

That would be awesome.  A Spawn remake with newer components is a guaranteed success with claw-grip gamers.


Side note:

- If I may, I would suggest bringing back original names for the products.  Spawn and Xornet sounded great.  MM520 on the other hand is pretty bland / lackluster.

- The best Claw-Grip mouse ever made by humankind deserve a name with more panache!


I hope my feedback can help you with your product development.


Best regards,

Oh wow, I just found this on reddit and the video from CES.




Really, really, really happy.  I can't stress how much the shape of this mouse is A-MA-ZING for claw-grip.

Like many, once I tried it there is no going back to any other mouse.  Like, ever.  Nothing compares to it.


So glad you're making it available again!
