Have you got this mouse wheel in FREE scroll mode ? sounds like it to me  :-\

There should be a button just above the wheel itself, click that down to lock out free scroll mode,this will return your wheel to the normal notch type scrolling  ;)

Edit : G502 & Rival are both very good mice for Xim/Apex once setup correctly, just a matter what shape you like the best, what fits your hand the best  ;)

Rival 600 is better.

I donít know what it is about it, the censor just feel a lot more accurate.

Rival 600. G502 feels better in my hand tho. Fits perfectly. I still prefer the Rival 600 though. There's something about that second sensor. However, if you're building in Fortnite I've discovered that turning the second sensor down to 100 helps you turn faster.

G502. More buttons, more comfortable in the hand, and you don't need extra long fingers to be able to reach the buttons!

Are you on a nav because if not there are many better options. No need for so many buttons.

As mentioned, you just need to lock the scroll wheel. The button should be right above the dpi profile changing button. Then Rival 600 is a carbon copy of the G502 without as many buttons and a more sensitive sensor. But it depends on which G502 model you're talking about of course. I wouldn't go as far as to say that it's better or worse. Both are good choices. I also have the G502 and wouldn't buy the rival 600 to replace it. I would opt for a more up to date Logitech model.
The Xim is not a magical tool that is going to make you a god. Time, effort and perseverance is what will take your gaming to the next level.

Iíll never go back to a G502, not even for the extra buttons and right now I play with the Somy Nav...

Especially for FPS games, this mouse is just magic. I purchased it before a lot of the newer reviews and got it out of recommendation by another Nav player, who for some reason didnít have every button mapped, so itís notnlike Iím just following peopleís reviews.

The mouse it just really good, Iím not saying itís the best mouse for Xim but over any G502 model? Definitely.
