Compared to the Force Feedback Pro and the Precision 2, nothing new was added to the Force Feedback 2 that wasn’t added to the Precision 2, in fact the shift button was taken away. The grip is slightly unbalanced, and there might be room to put some lead counterweight in the base, but it works fine with the power on.

Along with this keyboard a new mouse was released dubbed the SideWinder X5. Thank you for your patience.
