With the look of an executive high-end office chair but the comfort, sophistication and the uniqueness of a gaming chair, the Ferrino Line Black on Black Diamond Patterned Gaming and Lifestyle Chair by RapidX is a head turner in the gaming community. First, we examined the price tag to see if our chains were being yanked and if the chair is worth as much as it costs. The price really isn’t that high and it seems like a pretty ordinary gaming chair from the outside. It comes with a lot of the simplistic features we’ve come to expect from a gaming chair.
The leather texture feels pretty good to the touch and we love leather textures because they’re far easier to clean than silk or cotton. The design and embroidery aren’t really that impressive overall but it serves its primary purpose and we really liked the groovy edges along the sides of the back of the chair. It stood out and it’s pretty unique. It doesn’t add much in terms of comfort, but it’s a nice touch to the flow of the chair.
The overall design of the RapidX Chair has a lot of the simple things that are essential for gamers and the color scheme is pretty bland but what it lacks in artistic vision, it makes up for in the comfort of the chair. You have the logo embodied where the headrest is and the overall stitching of the design on the backrest is pretty nicely done. It’s even all the way across and it feels nice to the touch. The base of the chair is pretty large so the design aspect here allows the arms of the chair to extend out to larger gamers. The base looks relatively tall in the pictures but it’s not that tall and can be easily adjusted.
We were a little concerned about the RapidX Gaming Chair's comfort level when we first noticed it because the cushion doesn’t look as thick as some of the gaming chairs we’re used to seeing on the market. We were a little surprised though because when we sat down on the cushion, it’s made of a high-quality polyurethane foam that’s resistant to the negative effects of long term use and it has a great bounce back. So, after prolonged use, you won’t have to worry about the chair going soft on you or losing that cushioning. The back of the chair is nicely adjusted for your own comfort level and it’s comfortable enough to sleep in (more so than my bed at least).
Putting the chair together is quite easy as the instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Where it may prove difficult for some is the fact that the backrest may be too heavy to lift and gently place over the post. It isn't too heavy to lift, it's just that you have to be able to see where you are placing it and could be tough to negotiate by yourself. If you have a friend to help with that part, then set up is a breeze.

Also, there’s a tilt lock mechanism on the chair that will prevent it from coming out of your preferred position.

FAQ ( Frequently Asked Question
Why does one of the pictures of this product show it inside of a skate park?
It’s a highly versatile gaming chair that can be used in a wide variety of locations. Why the manufacturers took a picture of the chair inside of a skate park, we don’t know. We however don’t recommend you try doing any kind of activity other than sitting in this chair as it could be dangerous.

With most gaming chairs, a high-quality steel is used in the production of the base of the chair. The frame of this chair is just the same, made with pure high-quality steel.
How long can I sit in this chair and remain seated comfortably?
While we recommend you get up and stretch your legs every once in a while, to prevent blood clots from forming, every user experiences a different level of comfort but this chair was designed as a gaming chair that can withstand hours of usage without wearing out. You can sit in this chair and remain comfortably for as long as you like.
Is there a weight limit on the chair?
While the chair is relatively versatile and build with solid steel for the base, the weight limit is a little above 265 pounds but we recommend you be under 265 pounds to use this chair comfortably.
There’s no target market of gamers for this chair as this can be used by beginners or novices and you’ll get the same level of comfort. As went over, the design of the chair is pretty unique but the overall color scheme is a bit bland, which doesn’t bother too many people.

The budget was overall, pretty friendly and not too steep. We’ve seen chairs that offer less comfort out there for double, triple or even more the cost of this chair. The developer of the chair seems to be very passionate about his chairs and the company RapidX as a whole. The best gaming chairs are built by gamers themselves and you won’t be disappointed with this one.
