Looking for a high end mouse.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, im looking for a gaming mouse to replace my run of the mill gateway POS mouse, i have average size hands but i like smaller, shorter mice (like short from a side view, maybe you'd call it thick...) so i can claw them, i like them to feel quite heavy, but to still glide across a nice mousepad, ive looked at a few mice already, like the R.A.T. series and the Gigabyte Aivia m8600, i also want the color scheme to be green/blue/similar to use with my Razer Lycosa, but if its really good and theres nothing else like it, the color's wont bother me too much (the R.A.T.), and a mouse where you can choose the color would be very nice, wired wireless doesnt really matter, especially if its braided cord, but if the wireless seems to work really well and has a long battlery life and good battery system like the M8600, its cool. as far as buttons go, i would want the standard stuff (2 clicks and a scrolly) plus enough customizable to program it to reload, knife, sprint, and maybe zoom also, i dont really like to use the keyboard but for movement and i dont like to move my fingers off wasd because too many times i end up putting them back on esdf or something (even though my lycosa's gaming mode is a help, but then i cant see the other buttons well so its a tradeoff.) also, as i snipe alot, the presicion mode on the R.A.T. 5 and up is an amazing feature and if its on other mice or i can make it a macro thats really good. a sideways scroll weel would be cool for swithcing weapons and adding another programmable thing, as far as profiles go id like 3 or more so i can have a run and gun profile, sniper profile and then one for other games or a free one. it obviously has to have software for programming, and i guess thats about it, my budget is like 80$ but id be willing to go to 100 for something really nice...

Suggestions?

tl;dr: NEEDS MOAR CLICKY BOX!!!!

P.S. looking for a nice mousepad too, should be slidey like ice....

G500, G9X, G700, Xai, Deathadder, and the Mamba are some of the most popular high end mouses on the market and features exactly what you stated in the original (very long) question. Your best bet is to research them on your own time as the best we can possibility do is throw out suggestions and hope you like them.

For a claw grip I recommend the G9X or Xai. If you're looking for tilting scrollwheels then Logitech is one of the only few who offers such features.

Logitech G9 could be a very good choice for you.

SteelSeries 9HD would be also good mousepad for you if you want very low friction.

High end has different meanings here. Some will say its sensor precision, some will say its high dpi, lights, and buttons. You can prob guess which one I belong to. Here are my suggestions though:

Mionix 3200/5000 - Decent sensor, 7 buttons, changeable colours for LED, adjustable polling. 3200 Best used with cloth, while 5000 best used with hard pad.

Kone Plus/Kova Plus- Decent sensor, lots of buttons, changeable colours. Kone best use hard pad. Soft pad for Kova.

CM Storm Spawn-Good Sensor (for 1800, 3200 DPI), 7 buttons, pure fingertip shell, lightweight. Needs soft pad.

Zowie EC2- Good Sensor, 5 buttons, extremely solid mouse. No lights/fancy stuff. Need soft pad.

G9x-Cusomizable shell, changeable weights, custom colour led, two scroll modes, 7 buttons.

As for mouse pads:
Hard Pads: steelseries 9hd or 4hd is all you need.

Soft Pads: Puretrak Talent, Artesian Kai Hard
