Did you read the opening post?

I'm thinking it might be a little difficult for the OP to do that :\\

@Aeonus - Wow, you don't even move your wrist? That sounds hard . You don't move your arm at all either? That seems like a valid option for me. How long would it take for me to get precise accuracy with that grip? I'm assuming I'll have to use pretty high sensitivity too.
Nope, my wrist is practically stationary all the time. I've also rotated the trackball mouse about 30 degrees clockwise, so that it's in a straight line with my arm.
Immediately upon getting my trackball I found it more natural to use than an ordinary mouse, however, double-clicking with my thumb felt difficult. Now I do it without any trouble whatsoever, but it took a month or two.

I've heard of people who game with trackballs and are exceptional with them, but I'm not sure how much practice it takes. Also, I'm not sure the one I have is that great for FPS due to the low DPI. At geekhack.org people usually seem to recommend a CST Lasertrac, which has a DPI of up to 1600 or something like that.

I bet you would really like the tumbroll trackball mouse. If money is no object and you want the best solution out there I would say look for one of these.


It's discontinued but it was and is still the very best of trackball style it's approximately 2000 DPI and is about 1.5 times the size of the logitech version. I used it for many years of gaming but after getting electricians to fix it on 2 separate occasions I had to retire it after about 10 years of use.
I still think you should give the M570 a chance just buy it somewhere you can return it if you don't like it.

Alright, I'll give one of those trackball mice a try. Are there any that don't require you to double click with your thumb? Cause that might take awhile for me to get used to.

For your fingertip grip, do you move your arm or is it completely stationary? I seem to have trouble moving up and down - moving my fingers alone doesn't provide enough movement to cover the entire length of the screen.

The M570 from logitech is your best bet, it's a thumb roll mouse though so you use your pointer and middle finger like normal you just navigate using your tumb. Your hand doesn't move at all just your tumb.

That sounds interesting. In your experience, was using the trackball more natural/efficient than a standard mouse?

I love the trackball mouse, I currently have 3 of them in my house. have owned 4 logitech versions and one microsoft version. The only reason I bought a traditional style mouse was for the higher DPI and the sniper buutton on the R.A.T. 9.
I think thumb roll trackballs are probably the most comfortable mice out there period, it's just hard to get people to try them. They can be used virtually anywhere, I used to surf standing up holding the mouse on my chest.
