Kaptan has one of the best sensors as of today, having the Pixart PMW-3389 which is considered flawless, with no acceleration and prediction/angle-snapping but has smoothing on high DPI. You can manually set the DPI in increments of 50, with the ability to set the DPI for the X and Y axis independently. We don’t recommend to use 3000DPI or more to prevent smoothing. It has a changeable lift-off distance from 3mm down to 1mm (the lower, the better).
As you can see, the Kaptan report rate is near the 1000hz rated polling rate which is a good sign. In addition to this, the mouse’s precision is nearly 100% based on the Enotus Mouse Test. The second graph shows that the Rakk Kaptan has no visible input lag being tested here.
The Rakk Kaptan is a wired FPS gaming mouse with a lightweight paracord cable. Its wire has a 1.8m in length and I still suggest to use a mouse bungee for this even if the cable is already smooth and soft to lessen cable drag.
ERGONOMICS AND COMFORT
Shape is always a matter of preference. There is no perfect shape. Kaptan can be used for both Palm or Claw type users with medium to large hand size. Mine is around 18cm and I get tired easily after around 2 hours of use and I still prefer small lightweight ambidextrous mice for claw type users like me.
The Finetuner is very basic and user-friendly. It has 5 tabs specifically for key assignment, DPI levels, LED, Parameter and Macro. First, you can remap the 8 programmable keys in the Kaptan. Second, the DPI has 7 profiles in which you can change the X and Y axis independently. Rakk fell a little bit short on the mouse lighting modes having only 4 and in which you can’t assign each part (scroll wheel, logo, and tail) separately. On the other hand, when it comes to performance, the Rakk Kaptan is a winner because of the changeable lift-off distance having a 1mm minimum LOD. Lastly, you can record your own macro and the Kaptan’s Finetuner can save up to 5 different profiles.
