If you’ve played with the Logitech G Pro X Superlight, you know it was always going to be a hard act to follow, being one of the lightest and most precise FPS mice of the last few years. Yet amazingly Logitech G has gone one better producing a lighter and quicker pro gaming mouse — a new weapon of choice for pro gamers.

The proportions haven’t changed a dime, so they’re satisfyingly familiar to users returning to the brand and ready for an upgrade, but the mouse does sport an upgraded sensor that’s even faster and more accurate than before. Indeed, if milliseconds are the difference between you losing or winning, then the Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 is one of your best bets for victory.

All that power comes at a premium cost, though. Be prepared to pay $159, which is serious coin, even for a mouse of this caliber.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 design and build

Measuring 4.92 x 2.5 x 1.57 inches, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 is exactly the same size as its predecessor. The big difference is its weight; At 60 grams (just over 2 ounces) it’s a whole 3 grams lighter than its forebear and really feels it.

Its design is almost identical as before — it shows off a five-button symmetrical body with a medium curve on top that nestles into the back of your palm. It fills up the hand, ideally suiting large paws and palm grippers.

The symmetry really enhanced my pointer accuracy and made it all too easy for me to land on targets…

The two main clicks are housed tightly within the mouse body rendering the whole unit sleek and compact, but the buttons themselves still feel quite spacious. A pair of left-side buttons are positioned high up minimizing accidental clicks. The buttons sport Lightforce Hybrid switches that have both optical and mechanical parts. The optical parts provide the super-fast click speed, while the mechanical parts minimize the power consumption to extend the mouse’s battery life.

The mouse wheel houses the only other click, but to me it feels a little too light and flimsy with only a thin rubber strip around it. It’s obviously been slimmed down to keep weight down, but it could have done with more bulk for stability — like in the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro.

The Superlight 2 works with any Windows 10/11 PC. For connectivity it uses a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi connection. To hook up the device to Wi-Fi you get a small USB-A receiver that you can also use with a USB-A to USB-C adapter included in the box. For battery life, the Logitech Pro X Superlight 2 offers up to 95 hours of continuous play, which is five hours more than the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 gaming performance

While it takes me a while to say the name “Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2,” swinging my pointer from one side of my screen to the other takes just a fraction of a second. That’s thanks to its extremely fine pro-grade sensor, which Logitech G claims offers sub-micron precision.

Getting a measure of the Hero 2 sensor’s specs shows it boasts a few impressive upgrades over its predecessor, the Hero sensor. The upgrades include a jump in maximum resolution from 25,600 DPI to 32,000 DPI and a higher maximum speed of 500 inches per second, instead of 400 previously. The mouse’s maximum acceleration remains the same at 40G.

The Superlight 2’s maximum polling rate is double that of the Logitech G Pro X Superlight: 2,000Hz / 0.5ms instead of 1,000Hz. Just anecdotally, I found this improvement to make a real difference to the mouse’s responsiveness.

But the sensor is just one part of this mouse’s speed equation — a whole bunch of other factors come together to make it lethal in games. It also feels lighter and therefore extremely quick off the mark. The three grams advantage it has over the original Superlight makes it feel noticeably effortless to move. It felt so lightweight, I barely felt a hint of hand fatigue after long gaming sessions.

Indeed, once my hand adapted to the almost imperceptible weight, I found I had much more control than I’ve experienced with some FPS mice. I could even save a few bad shots at the last minute and hit the peripheries of targets when I otherwise would have missed.

Logitech has applied the same configuration of 100 percent PTFE feet in the Superlight 2 and I’m so glad for that. With so much of the mouse’s underside covered, you get a very even movement and therefore a consistency to your aiming. The term “PTFE feet” seems like a misnomer, though, since there’s really a huge chunk of it up front and a horseshoe shape at the back.

After a few rounds of Counter-Strike 2, I was convinced the Superlight 2 has one of the best designs you can get for FPS gaming. The symmetry really enhanced my pointer accuracy and made it all too easy for me to land on targets. Suffice to say, this mouse is as accurate and fast as pro mice come and is just ideal for the quickest competitive play.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 software

If you want to get the most out of your Superlight 2, you’ll need the Logitech G Hub app, which allows you to change settings like the DPI and polling rate, assign commands, and save these settings to the mouse’s onboard memory.

Logitech G Hub has a few advanced features that really show its worth to gamers. The first is the Hero Sensor Calibration feature. This allowed me to copy saved DPI settings from my former go-to FPS mouse to the Superlight 2 so that I didn’t have to go through the lengthy process of inputting them again. I also enjoyed being able to tweak the Superlight 2’s lift-off distance and set individual DPI values for the mouse’s X and Y-axis.

Should you buy the Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2?

The list of reasons why you would want to buy a Logitech G mouse just got a little longer and more convincing with the Superlight 2, with the addition of a quicker, more powerful sensor, and a lighter-weight body than before. If you’re a pro gamer, or aspire to become one, then the Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 is one of the best tools of the trade you can possibly buy.
