Best mouse for claw/fingertip grip? - Page 4

post #31 of 39
I would recommend the CM Storm Spawn as well, so long as you don't do very fast swipes.

Hi guys. I'm currently researching the best mouse to use for my playstyle and gripstyle.

What i'm shocked about is that the Razer Lachesis didn't come up.

According to Razer, this is the best mouse they offer for the claw grip style. It has 5600 DPI(not that it matters so much).

I bought the Razer Nastromo a few days ago because I get pains in my wrists and hands from using my Dell keyboard. I'm blown away by the Nastromo, I was very sceptical about buying it but the comfort and ease of use is fantastic. Once configured, I can now access more buttons without looking at the keypad than I could with my Dell keyboard.

I have owned a Logitech G9 for many years now. It is a good mouse, but I am discovering that it is uncomfortable and not suited to my grip style. I need a mouse that is smaller and fits my claw grip better.

So first of all, The CM Spawn mouse. The problem I see with this mouse is that apparently there are only 3 DPI settings you can access. 800, 1800 and 3500.

I've been researching DPI and one thing is true. DPI needs to be in blocks of 400 to be accurate. Otherwise the mouse/computer will start using software to approximate that DPI setting. So setting the mouse to 3500 isn't giving an accurate reading on your movements. I need a mouse that I can select nearly any DPI setting up to the mouse limits and it has to be in blocks of 400.

If you are still looking, you need to consider the Lachesis.

Where have you been researching? Because this only true if your sensor interpolates DPI.

The only time Windows interpolates DPI is when the pointer speed is set somewhere other than 6/11. Games will have software interpolation if game sensitivity is set other than 1.

A sensor that's natively 3500 DPI will be accurate assuming it's paired with a compatible surface.

Xai or Deathadder if the length is to your liking. Xai is laser and Deathadder is optical. If you want a shorter, optical mouse, then get the Mico (I haven't tried it but the size might fit you). If you want an even smaller/shorter mouse, then get the Kinzu (it's optical).

CM Storm Spawn is prediction?
I use claw grip, but will buy a Black Edition Razer DA simply because it has a good sensor, 3500DPI, no prediction.
I'll see if I can get used, if not, do not know which to choose.

1. The Mico is smaller than the Kinzu in length width and height.

2. I can't understand why anyone would ever recommend the Kinzu unless they were buying new teflon feet for it and transplanting a decent sensor in it.

The Mico is smaller? Didn't know that (never tried it really).

As far as the kinzu's performance goes, the one I tested was working really great at 1000hz but it was too small for me so I sold it. The feet do need replacement though.

The Spawn's prediction can be turned on or off, as an option in the driver interface, according to your preference. This setting is stored in the mouse's on-board flash memory, so it will still be effective, if you uninstall the drivers, or use the Spawn on another computer without the software.

My Abyssus also had no jitter (QcK+ cloth pad - one notorious for causing jitter with this mouse). There were a lot of "lemons" manufactured and sold. They work ok on some surfaces but not at all on others AFAIK.

I purchased mine a month ago (LoL edition), and now I have an issue with the buttons getting stuck. I really like the mouse otherwise, but this is hard to overlook so it's back to the WMO for me.
