Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Skorpion does as the name suggest resemble nature's gift, the scorpion. Using an iron weighted core as its center, CM uses a synthetic plastic material for what I will call the base of the unit. This base is triangular in shape, black in color, and feels a bit heavy in the hand. Attached to the center of each of the three sides are jointed legs that go away from the base, and then down to widen its stance for added support. At the end of these three detachable legs you will find soft rubber feet to give the Skorpion bite on any surface. To pretty things up on the top of the base there is a sticker with a red CM Storm logo. At the top of that logo, attached to the leg on that side it the tail of the scorpion, or in this case a soft rubber arm that will allow for a bit of movement, but the main goal is to run the wire through it for the benefits we already discussed.
To cover what CM has to say, after the introduction where they describe an instance similar to those I explained, and why this device will come in handy for some users. They also point out the flexible arm, adaptive groves for multiple sizes of cords, durable legs with super-grip feet, the heavy iron core, and that it can be disassembled. The only thing from the specifications that I didn't really cover yet is the 150mm by 130mm footprint it needs on the desktop, and that it stands 85mm off the desktop.
The CM Storm Skorpion mouse bungee may not be on your "OMG, I got to have this"ť list, but as you will soon read, I really think the cost may widen your view for the need for something like the Skorpion. While supplies in the US are currently split between Newegg's stock and EBay listings, I was impressed when I saw the listing price. For $19.99 plus $5.99 for the shipping, you can have the Skorpion delivered and on your desk in no time at all.
Let's be honest here. $25 can easily be blown in a single day, whether dinner, a bottle of booze, or a failed attempt to fill your gas tank, $25 is really an acceptable enough price for potential customers to just try it and see if they like it. I have to give them credit for that.
