ASUS has teamed up with popular aim trainer Aim Lab to create a gaming mouse and mouse pad duo aimed at esports pros and aspiring professional gamers.

The ROG Harpe Ace gaming mouse and Hone Ace mouse pad are looking to appeal to FPS players and fans of games like Valorant. The Harpe mouse features an Aim Lab settings optimiser that analyses your performance to provide customised mouse settings that are supposed to help you get the most out of your strengths and individual playstyle.

The settings optimiser guides players through a series of tasks in Aim Lab, then looks at player performance, traits, and strengths to suggest the best mouse settings, including the ideal DPI, angle tuning, and life-off distance.

ASUS has also clearly been paying attention to what gamers want. The Harpe is feather-light at 54g, and is equipped with the 36,000 DPI ROG AimPoint optical sensor and low latency ROG SpeedNova 2.4GHz wireless technology.

The flexible ROG Paracord cable reduces cable drag significantly, so the mouse should glide smoothly across your pad even while charging.

It features an ambidextrous shape that ASUS says has been tested by esports pros. The company designed 15 different versions of the mouse, before settling on the final variant. There is ample support for the palm area, for better comfort over long hours.

Meanwhile, the Hone Ace Aim Lab Edition gaming mouse pad is designed to work in tandem with the Harpe mouse. It features measurement markings that serve as a training space within Aim Lab, helping you improve your aim. The markings quantify wrist and forearm movements, so you can look at the numbers and adjust your sensitivity accordingly while practicing your flicking and tracking.

The Hone has a hybrid cloth surface that is textured, designed for fast glides and ample stopping power for more accurate control. Tracking is uniform on both the X and Y axes for greater consistency, particularly in games with vertical movement like Apex Legends and Overwatch.

A military-grade nano-coating protects against oil, water, and dust, making the Hone easy to clean and maintain. However, it remains to be seen whether this coating will degrade over time and alter the glide of the pad.

Both the Harpe mouse and Hone mouse pad will be available at the end of January for S$219 and S$49 respectively.
