The CoolMaster CM Spawn Looks like a pretty good mouse, was thinking about ordering one myself.

Although I'm on the Razer hate bandwagon (I really only hate them for their keyboards but I don't like their mice for some reason. Probably because they decided to use the Philips twin eye sensor. It seems that their mice have gotten exceptionally good), I would say the razer mice you listed, all of the current logitech G series mice (all use the ADNS9500 sensor except the G400. Also, don't get the G700. Too many problems), Mionix Naos 5000, Steelseries Xai, Roccat Kone +, Puretrak Valor, and CM Storm Spawn.

I'm a G700 owner.

I can't feel a difference in terms responsiveness between this and my Deathadder, in wired or wireless modes. As for your best option, tell us more about how you hold your mouse, and what DPI you typically play at and we'll be in a better place to make recommendations.

Avoid any Razer mice with the 5600 DPI sensor. That's the Philips Twin Eye, which has a few issues that are well documented around here.

I play with a palm/claw grip and I can adapt to pretty much any mouse. Is the Roccat Kone+ any good? It appeals to me quite a bit but I can't seem to find any in Canada

I'm not too familiar with Roccat's products, but that mouse uses the Avago ADNS-9500 sensor, which apparently has a bit of acceleration, but I'll be damned if I can feel it, even coming from my Deathadder, which has none.

Aside from that, it seems like a top little sensor.

Going for Roccat, I can definitely recommend the sensors and build quality.

Definitely got for the + version of their mice, the mouse surface is a lot better and the drivers/software is a lot better.

I love the look, feel and features of mine (although be sure to turn off the announcement when using the on the fly DPI switching, that guy can get annoying!!!).

The Kone+ looks so sexy. It's really expensive though
