Logitech has announced the availability of even more features for its already highly customizable Logitech G9 Laser Mouse. The tune up options offered for gamers include weight tuning, interchangeable grips, and custom-color LEDs. The company now enables users to make their G9 mouse even more personal with the introduction of the Logitech G9 Laser Mouse ID Grip, through means of printing an image of their choice on the palm area of the grip. Logitech allows them to use game-specific artwork, select images from the company's gallery, or provide an image of their own.

“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 new level of personalization. Whether it's a guild logo or a personal photo, we're delighted to give gamers the ability to make the G9 mouse even more a reflection of their unique personality.”

The company has also announced that it can offer images that won't fade when subjected to intense gaming, as a specially designed custom printing process is used to infuse the rub- and fade-proof image into the surface of the grip. The process results in a high-quality, high-resolution color image meant to personalize the G9 mouse. The process of adding an image to the grip is an easy one, as it implies choosing an image from game-specific artwork, such as Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 from Electronic Arts Inc., or upload a user's personal image. We should mention that there are some restrictions that apply here, as uploads are subject to technical and image-content requirements.

The new Logitech grip also comes with a new shape, besides the personalization options it offers. The broad-shaped grip offers palm and wrist support, and has been developed to withstand extended gameplay, while also being able to offer comfort to gamers with larger hands. In addition, more pleasure during short gaming sessions and epic battles is available through a soft-touch side grip. The new ID Grip also features ease to attach or detach to and from the G9 Laser Mouse, as the moves can be made through the push of a single button.
