It depends on how I grip it. I feel like I've got a little freedom on how far up or down the mouse I put my thumb, ring and pinky fingers. The Abyssus is almost shaped like a rectangle with a semicircle on the back end--its width is nearly constant through the part of the mouse you grip the sides. The Mico is more of an egg shape. Near the middle, it's roughly the same width as the Abyssus, so right there doesn't feel so different. However, if you move your fingers up or down a little bit, it does start to feel a bit crampy.

The thing that feels weirdest to me coming from the Abyssus is the length difference. My grip with most ordinary sized mice tends to have a little contact with this point on my hand:



I use it to sort of stabilize the back of the mouse or something, I don't know, but it just feels natural with other mice. The Mico is so short and gets so thin at the back that making that contact is quite difficult. My usual grip doesn't work quite right, so I end up with almost a pure fingertip grip.

If you have large hands, I could easily see you gripping past the end of the mouse. If I move my grip up about half an inch, my fingers are on the very tip ends of the buttons and almost past the end of the mouse and it still doesn't contact the meat of my palm in the back.

If I didn't own a KA, I'd get a Mico soon.

You can say a lot about Zowie. They are overpriced and their products aren't perfect (none are): the EC has prediction and glossy sides and the Mico might not be good at all of its CPI settings...BUT...they both work. Its funny to see that a mouse made for RTS gamers blows almost every other product out of the water @ 400,800 CPI.

I put that part of my hand on the back side of the mouse too, I'm not sure how I will take to using a 100% finger tip grip. In the past I bought the salmosa asian edition and it was WAYYYYY too small, I guess I'm afraid of that happening again .

Ill still order one though, worth a shot. Thanks.

Yeah, while we hunt for flawless mice with enough CPI/DPI the majority are drooling over the 6400DPI Imperator and Mamba 4G dual sensor abominations.

I do the same (not with the Mico).

The mouse is very balanced unlike the salmosa and feels great with clawgrip or fingertip if your hands are small.

Using the cm storm spawn, abyssus LOL edition and the zowie mico for a while I prefer the zowie mico because no other mouse feel better in my hands and no other mouse make me perform as good as i do with it

I recently bought a Mico aswel, the mouse itself is really nice the sensor is amazing and the shape I was getting use to.
But I had a load of issues with this mouse, It seems the one I bought has got sum major polling rate issues to the point where it was saturating the USB bus and slowing down my entire system.
This problem only appaeared after I would restart the pc.
It took over a week, 300 odd quid of new hardware to work out that it was the mouse causing all my issues.

I have never known a mouse to do such a thing and cause so much hassle and money. Especially when its driverless!!
It was even causing these issues after installing the new hardware (motherboard etc)

I would be aware of this issue... I myself shall not be buying anymore Zowie gear as whos to say this would not happen further down the line after several months of gaming with the mouse.

think I shall be getting myself a CM storm Spawn.
