Need a new Mouse

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi,

So my current mouse is the Logitech MX700. Its wireless, which sucks (batteries). I also palm grip and the MX700 is slightly too small to comfortably do that in my ogre hands. I tried out a Steelseries Ikari, and it feels great, but slightly over my budget unless I find a good deal. I'm not sure what to get. I'd like to try a DeathAdder, but none of the stores around here have them on display. Is it bigger than the MX700 (MX700 looks and I think feels identical to the G500/MX518).

Also...any recommendations on mouse pads? I am new to this area, so I have no idea what is good. My current mouse is ~5-6yrs old and I have an old Belkin mousepad. Thanks!

Do your see yourself preferring a symmetrical mouse? Or a mouse specified by hand preference?

I'm not sure what that means...I am right handed and I don't see myself using my left hand.

He's asking what's your "kung fu" style.

Do you palm the mouse or claw grip it?

Some mouses are symmetrical. Was wondering if you had a preference. I'd go with weighted mouses. I like Logitech.

You can check out the PureTrak Valor, shipping next week, brand new mouse developed by PureTrak shaped for right handed gamers like yourself and I, and it's made for palm grip gaming.

Also a great mouse, the Razer Deathadder known as one of the most comfortable mice on the market (According to a letter I read from Razer regarding the release of their Black edition of the Deathadder, which removes the glossy sides because some people complained it caused sweat, but it sadly also loses LED's).
