Need help in purchasing a new mouse

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi. Can you guys please suggest me a mouse that:

- suits claw-grip users
- has 500hz polling rate out of the box
- is lightweight
- has high perfect control speed
- has no positive accel
- has very slight if not no prediction at all

I'm currently using WMO, which has great shape and weight, and I'm thinking of getting an upgrade. Thanks.

Maybe the CM Storm Spawn.

There's the abyssus, but what you get in CPI you give up in lift off distance and price. The Spawn is currently messed up at 800CPI, but they're saying that they're testing new firmware now and that most of them lower the lift off distance. Dunno when it'll actually be fixed though. Someone in the sticky is claiming that the Spawn is just 85 grams, so it's light weight enough.

I have the WMO as well and am thinking the same thing.

Abyssus fits all of those requirements except 500hz; it's 1000hz by default.

the cm storm spawn fit all that, I got it to 86g(without cord). If you can live with 1800/3500dpi then it would be perfect for you. The 800dpi is drawing squares but they are working on it

I had an abyssus and I found that it was quite uncomfortable. Regarding the Spawn, I'm afraid that I might not be able to cope with 1800/3500 dpi since I prefer to keep my mouse pointer speed at 6/11. Do you guys have any idea regarding Zowie EC2?

I have the black EC1 (big hands) and I love it! it does have prediction but I find it a lot less then other mice with prediction. Its a great mouse and I'd buy again if mine died because the shape is lovely for me....but its not worth the cash for what you get. Its a £30-£35 mouse for £50

If you can get over that its superb. simple and just rock solid.
