Opinions on the G9/G9x & a mouse pad. - Page 2

post #11 of 23
i have an almost identical grip to yours and have been using a g9x for about 4 months now. i really like the g9x. i think the sensor and weight are just fine. i don't think you can go wrong with this purchase. if i were you, i would try to pick one up from a local shop. that way, if you end up not liking it, it shouldn't be a big deal to return it.

as for a mouse pad, i have been using a steelseries qck+ and have no problems with it at all.

It is significantly lighter if that is your thing.

Mouse: Abyssus, caveat - no side buttons
Pad: Propus 380, cheap/ looks great/ is really big
Is it comfortable and is it big that's my two biggest things I want a BIG mouse.
Jitter, got it.
The pad is about the same as a steelseries 4hd(price wise). Not sure on performance.

Thanks for your input.
I can't really seem to find any local shops and I have money in Paypal from selling stuff on ebay so I need to use it rather than transfer it and lose money..

That's a first I've heard of that pad.
Do you have any pics?

Cheeze you if you have large hands and wan't a big mouse I can honestly tell you to not buy the G9x or the Abyssus.

If G9x is what you REALLY wan't, get its brother, the g500.

I am claw grip and even though this mouse is not exactly claw It feels better to do so with it over the g9x... it is also much more solid, and has the exact same sensor.

My hands are more than 7 inches long

The Abyssus doesn't seem promising. The mouse I'm currently using is 3 inches long. LMAO
Just measured my hand and it's exactly 7 inches long.
Yay for claw grip.

Lol yes, I am in the same boat.

I have found that besides from good ambidextrous mice(IMO 1.1), the Imperator/G5+400 style works excellent for clawing in FPS games.

Another thing that is nice is the little thumb catch on the left of the G9/G9x and the G5/G500. What is the difference between the two?

With the G9x wide grip it extends horizontally a tad further, the precision grip it doesn't exist at all. The G500 is in between them with more of an indent near the tip of the mouse, also it has a solid textured plastic feel which is also like a mix between the two G9x grips.

My main gripe with the G500 is that the two main buttons definitely feel stiff out of the box, my pointer finger knuckle is swollen lol, it's much harder to press than the g9x for some reason.

Get the G500 or G400 over the G9x, no pain no gain.

Hope I don't get in trouble for hot linking.

I use the Propus 380 that I mentioned earlier.
