Best claw grip mouse for FPS games?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I'll be using it on a Steelseries QcK. Preferably a good sensor. Lets keep it at a reasonable price under $100, but under $75 is preferred.

What would you guys recommend?

Edit: I have a Deathadder right now, but I find myself using a claw style grip more often than before. I would prefer a sensor which is just as accurate as the DA's sensor.

Mice seem to be a difficult subject to have an opinion on in these forums, but I'll give you my two cents. The Cooler Master Storm Spawn is Great is you have medium sized hands. Light enough, decent cord, great tracking... It does have a few issues with different firmwares with mouse-pad compatibilities and LOD, but if you play with a claw grip, I doubt you play low sens so it won't really matter. I have a QcK with the spanw I bought and it tracks much better than my G700. http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=MS-20MLON1&title=Cooler-Master-SGM2000-MLON1-Storm-Spawn-Gaming-Mouse

Nice price. Is it a trustworthy website?

Also, do you think my hands would be too large for this mouse? My hand measures 18cm from the tip of my middle finger to the upper most line of my wrist

My hand is longer than yours, and the Spawn is great for me!

The Spawn will be perfect for you if you dont play CSS or Quake and record low sensitivity. I have larger hands and the mouse fits me perfectly. Im not sure hand length will play into the comfort as much as your personal opinion of the shape.

I have somewhat large hand and I find it a little cramped (fatigue faster than my G700), but I have a great amount of control. But yeah, more than anything personal preference. As for superbiiz, it's where I bought the spawn and it seems to be a generally reputable sight, as others have recommended it on here and it regularly comes up in the online deals section.

The G9x is pretty good for the claw.
The smaller the better, when it comes to that, really. Just weigh your options. Generally you can't get super high quality mice that are tiny. I found the G9x to be good middleground, personally.

I was actually going to buy the G9x because I held it at the store and it feels absolutely amazing. However, I heard that the sensor sucks and that it has positive acceleration.

I ordered the Storm Spawn on Amazon just now. Thanks for the suggestions.

I still have a couple of hours to cancel the order if anyone knows a better mouse.

Second this. However, I find that the best "claw" style mice are typically small that fit in your palm. Excessively large mice, such as the G500, Deathadder, are not meant for claw grip. But then again, most people that claim to have a claw grip don't.

A lot of people say they spam. WOT 250+ reviews all in the yellow.
