Is the CM spawn similar size to the MS wheel mouse optical?

My XAI just broke on me so im having to use my wheel mouse optical which actually is a nice size. Is the CM spawn similar size to the wheel mouse optical?

No. CM spawn is rather short mouse and designed for claw-grip.
If you do not have a hate on Razer, take a look at the Razer Deathadder.

If you like the Wheel Mouse Optical shape, just continue using it as no other mouse has as good tracking in the same shape. Only flaw is perfect control speed only 1.55 meters per seconds. Remember to overclock your usb ports above 250 Hz (500 Hz is a good number). Otherwise the perfect control speed is only 1 meter per second.

Derp was the only one to prove he had jitter. All other spawn users did the same test with no jitter. The shapes are completely different. Spawn is only for claw unless u have tiny hands

Its definately a mouse you should try out before using. I personally love it. If you predominately claw then Im sure youd enjoy its shape.

Yea no jitter here on mine either, haven't really tested perfect control speed as I primarily play rts based games right now but it seems fine.

I used to have a WMO and the the spawn is definitely shorter but very comfortable. I like symmetrical mouse because of their size but often times felt they were too narrow and kind of cramped my hands. I also found it awkward on ring finger placement with that mouse (slightly on the RMB or on the side of the mouse, I was always switching). The ring finger has an intended place to go on the spawn which I like. This mouse also gives good agility and comfort, but like others are saying it's not for everyone.

I'm actually still debating on using my abyssus or this at the moment, it's a very tough decision.

An ebay store had them up for $45 and free shipping, so I snagged one, should be here this Thursday or Friday. I'll post another review thread when I get it. I'm interested to see how it fits my hand - I have used the SS grip on my 3.0 forever, so the wider base those create might make me a good fit for this mouse.

In my opinion there's some jitter at 800 CPI: http://www.overclock.net/mice/1037927-review-cm-spawn-xai-microsoft-ime3-6.html#post14311010.

Might be that some have it. Either way I don't play at 800 so it doesnt bother me. Also therman, you shouldn't have bought it at ebay store. It's available for $36 dollars which is likely the best buy in gaming mouse history.
