New ID Grip for Logitech G9 Laser Mouse Unveiled

Logitech G9 Laser Mouse ID Grip 

With Logitech G9 Laser Mouse, gamers have the ability to tune their mouse for the way they play - including features such as weight tuning, interchangeable grips and custom-color LEDs. Logitech now introduces G9 Laser Mouse ID Grip to make it even more personal with the image of your choice printed on the palm area of the grip.

You can choose from a gallery of designs created by Logitech, or provide your favorite image. A rub- and fade-proof image is applied with a specially designed custom printing process that infuses it into the surface of the grip. This helps to provide a durable image that won’t fade even after intense gaming.

“In surveying gamers who own a Logitech mouse, we learned that more than 65 percent want to mod their hardware,” said Rory Dooley, Logitech senior vice president and general manager of the Control Devices business unit. “The Logitech G9 Laser Mouse ID Grip provides gamers with a new level of personalization.”

Logitech’s grip also presents a new shape. The broad-shaped grip provides exceptional palm and wrist support during gameplay, and can make even those gamers with large hands feel comfortable. A soft-touch side grip offers a comfortable texture that feels good during short gaming sessions and epic battles. The ID Grip can be attached or detached with the push of a button.

Logitech G9 Laser Mouse ID Grip is available online at Logitech for $20 in the U.S. only.
