Logitech G Pro X Superlight vs G Pro Wireless – Upgrade? (2021)

Logitech has released the Logitech G Pro X Superlight, but is it really worth the purchase? Every ambitious gamer likes to look at how pro gamers play and asks himself whether it’s just the skill or also the equipment. Especially in the field of mice, there are now many gaming mice of high quality, and most pro gamers have the latest and usually most expensive on the market.

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is a further development of the Logitech G Pro wireless. A better sensor, less weight, and even better gliding capabilities are the most significant changes and promise to improve the own performance by a few percent.

Among many other mice, I have used the Logitech G Pro wireless for a long time and was very enthusiastic about the excellent quality, the low weight, and especially the wireless technology from Logitech, which no longer has a disadvantage to cable mice. So when the new Logitech G Pro X Superlight came out, which is supposed to be a pure further development, I was, of course, curious whether the upgrade is worth it.

Logitech Pro X Superlight vs Pro Wireless

Masakari draws on the experience of over 50,000 hours of gameplay in FPS games. Together with our analysis of the most popular gaming gear from over 1,700 pro gamers, we’d like to give you this hint:

If you want to become a better player, then take your inspiration from the better players aka pro gamers. Here you can see at a glance what equipment is used by the best in the world.

Pro-Tip: I recommend this interesting video as related content on Youtube. The probably best-known FPS player “Shroud” compares the new Superlight with his old G Pro Wireless. So – watch it & read on.

 

What Changes in Design have the Logitech G Pro X Superlight Compared to the Logitech G Pro Wireless?

The size and shape are identical, and I can’t find any difference between the buttons and lightspeed-wireless technology. However, Logitech has managed to undercut the already light 2.8 oz (80g) of the Logitech G Pro wireless. With about 2.2 oz (63g), the Logitech G Pro X Superlight is one of the most lightweight mice on the market and, therefore, absolutely deserves the new name.

An important change, especially for all left-handers, is the thumb buttons. The Logitech G Pro wireless is still universal, the buttons could be mounted on the left or right. With the Logitech G Pro X Superlight, this is no longer possible. This is perhaps the only real shortcoming of this mouse compared to its predecessor, at least if you are left-handed, but I’m not. 😉

For all RGB enthusiasts, perhaps another shortcoming, there are simply no light effects on the Logitech G Pro X Superlight. However, I already deactivated the Logitech G Pro wireless light effects because it extended the battery life from 48 to 60 hours.

The mouse wheel has also been replaced with what I consider an even more stable variant, although I have to say that I already got along very well with the Logitech G Pro Wireless mouse wheel.

The mouse’s underside is equipped with significantly larger glide pads so that the mouse paired with the low weight glides even better than the predecessor.

What Are the Technical Changes of the Logitech G Pro X Superlight?

From a purely technical point of view, it is mainly the sensor that has changed. While the Logitech G Pro wireless uses the 16K Hero sensor, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight uses the new 25K Hero sensor. As far as I know, the Logitech G Pro wireless is now also built with the new 25K Hero sensor. However, I have to say, the 16K Hero sensor was already excellent, and I can’t feel a difference from the new 25K Hero sensor.

The second technical change is the battery, which is supposed to have a bit more power with 70 hours of battery life than the Logitech G Pro wireless, whose battery could offer a runtime of 60 hours (without RGB effects).

Both mice are compatible with the Powerplay technology, which means they can be charged wirelessly via a corresponding Logitech mousepad. I don’t use this technology because the mousepad is too small for me due to my low mouse sensitivity. However, suppose you play with higher sensitivity. In that case, the combination of G Pro (X) and Powerplay mousepad is worth looking at because the annoying charging with the cable is eliminated. The mousepad is available in a fabric or hard plastic version.

By the way, we’ve published an article on how you can restore your used mousepad to its former glory with a simple 5-step procedure. You can find the link at the end of this article.

Are the Accessories of the Logitech G Pro X Superlight Different Compared to the Logitech G Pro Wireless?

A nice bonus is the Grip Tape, which is already cut for the mouse and is very easy to apply and of good quality. Since I tape every mouse with grip tape anyway, this is of course a useful accessory for me since I can save cutting the grip tape.

Another new accessory is the gliding cover for the storage space to transport the mouse’s USB stick (wireless transmitter). This cover can now be replaced with a gliding version for an even better gliding behavior.

How is the Price/Performance Ratio of the Logitech G Pro X Superlight?

The mouse is definitely worth the steep price (currently about $150). Powerful technology, superior design, and top gliding behavior can keep up with any other gaming mouse or even surpass them. Despite heavy daily use, the quality is convincing. For first-person shooters, this mouse is undoubtedly one of the best on the market.

Is Upgrading Worth it?

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is a perfect gaming mouse and absolutely worth its price on its own. Still, if you already own the Logitech G Pro wireless and are considering upgrading, I have to say, unless you have too much money lying around, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend an upgrade.

Technically, the upgrade is minimal and hardly noticeable. The better glide is nice to have, but the Logitech G Pro wireless also glides smoothly. Everything else is more or less cosmetic, which also explains the still very high price of the Logitech G Pro wireless, as this mouse is also worth the money.

So, to conclude, once again the precise recommendation is:

If you already have a Logitech G Pro Wireless and feel comfortable, stick with it.

If you need a new mouse or your Logitech G Pro Wireless still feels too heavy for you, grab a Logitech G Pro X Superlight – you won’t regret the decision.
