Suggestion: Concerning the Ironclaw's inevitable refresh

So I've caught word that the Ironclaw and Ironclaw Wireless are part of corsair's previous design generation. This gave me an idea, and a glimmer of hope: This is the perfect time to improve on the Ironclaw's design.

 

There are three main things I would like to change about the Ironclaw.

 

One, is to have the same button layout across both wired and wireless models.

 

  • The Wired model needs to have the same buttons as the wireless, if not just phased out entirely.
     
  • The spare button would work much better as a sniper button placed under the thumb, rather than under the index knuckle.
     
  • This one matters a lot to me, the addition of two more buttons on the right hand side of the mouse much like the ones on the top-left side. There is a gap between corsair's 10-button mice, and the scimitar. These two additional buttons will surely fill that gap!

Hi Tomtronic125,

All right, so I did some digging and came up with some notes:

> If the device were to continue having wireless support, it would most definitely need USB Type-C or Qi charging capability. I remember how it was jarring to unplug the cable if you wanted to use it wirelessly. It was a tight fit.

> The Ironclaw Wireless was rife with button sensitivity issues. What with the main buttons having intermittent issues, and the back, forward, and option buttons having sensitivity issues when it came to pressure. Perhaps a different switch type would be in order for the spare buttons? I recall the switches used for the scimitar's side buttons had excellent reliability.

> The rubberized thumb grip is a hand grime magnet and was an immense chore to clean. Perhaps a different texturing pattern?
