I have always been a pretty competitive individual, from sports like baseball, skating & racing to gaming on my computer. One of the things that’s really important when competing is not just being good at what you do, but also having the right equipment to help get you there. The right equipment can take you from being a good competitor to a great competitor. This is also true when gaming because without great equipment to assist you, such as your mouse or mechanical keyboard, you’re just another good player.

How many of you remember the the Speed Skating at the last winter Olympics? As a young man during my High School years I did some speed skating of my own... strapping on those skates and racing against others on the clean fresh ice was an exhilarating and rewarding experience, especially when I won. If the conditions of the ice beneath my feet were right, and my skates were sharp it was easier to get in "the zone." The slightest tweak could help me out-maneuver, speed past, and beat my opponents to the finish line. When gaming on a PC you also look for those same slight tweaks that might help you get in the zone and provide that extra edge over your opponents.
