Recommendations for a Small Normal/Gaming mouse

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Im a hybrid palm/claw gripper and looking for a small normal or gaming mouse. I have 7.25" palm and tried mouse like g400 and didn't like it due to the huge size so please do not recommend mx518/deathadder etc.

Btw, the way i hold the mouse is left side-thumb, right side-ring and pinky while the other 2 fingers on the center for clicking so please recommend a mouse that has space for me to rest my fingers on both sides especially the right.

My requirements:
- The shape must be roughly the same or slightly bigger as the one seen on this picture -> http://www.mobile-gear.com/productimages/265/1.jpg
- Have Forward/Back buttons
- 1000 Dpi (Doesn't matter if there is Dpi switch so long as its at least 1000 dpi)
- Optical wired mouse only
- Smooth scroll wheel which doesn't make clicking noises
- Fully black color

Any recommendations? Thanks

Honestly, I just returned my Logitech G400 today to BestBuy and got my money back. It's a great mouse it is just not for me. I am a fingertipper/claw style and I cant stand palm style mice. They only mouse I keep coming back to is the Logitech G9X. It's a solid mouse with the perfect grip for my style. You will hear a lot of people telling you to shy away from it because of the sensor having 5% positive acceleration, but honestly you get used to it if you even notice it at all.

Razer Orochi seems to meet most of those requirements. My wife (who has small hands) has one. It's marketed as a wireless/bluetooth mouse, but has a cord to hook up for wired mode, which is what she uses. As a bonus, in wired mode you can go with 0, 1, or 2 batteries, which means it effectively has weight adjustment if you provide the weights. Unfortunately it's laser rather than optical. Not sure how much of a deal-breaker that is.

It's small and has forward/back buttons on both sides (total of 4 extra buttons). The scroll wheel is not perfectly smooth. It has tactile feedback, but not audible feedback. The wife likes it a lot - mostly for CS:S and other shooters, but she also used to play WoW with it. It's not a perfect fit for your needs, but there isn't much out there in the small mouse department for gamers who want extra buttons. We spent a couple months looking around, trying things out before my wife finally settled on the Razer.

CM Spawn is small and fits all your needs

Roccat Kova is also somewhat small.

The recommendations here seems pretty good but are there any better alternatives that suit all my requirements? It must fit all the requirements and not just only because it is small or only few other factors.

Btw, my grip is slightly different then palm/claw probably due to the nature of my current mouse. My wrist usually rests on the table all the time except when i lift my mouse up and i only move the mouse using my palm. The front fingers of my hands isn't exactly resting fully like palm grippers and isn't exactly in claw position but more like a hybrid of both.

I would look into the Roccat Pyra, it might fit your needs quite well.

Please also mention if your recommendation did not meet any of my requirements like roccat-no wired, zowie-no side buttons etc... Thanks. Although all of the recommendations seem good, i was hoping to find a mice that fit all my requirements if there is one, dosent matter if its normal or gaming.

Just happen to see logitech mx anywhere mouse and this mouse suits all my need except that its laser and wireless....I don't intend to get wireless as this mouse will be my main desktop mouse so please only recommend a wired mouse. thanks

This mouse seems good but theres a few things that bothers me which is the right side of the mouse have buttons which i won't use it at all and it might affect the comfort of my fingers since i tend to rest both my ring and pinky finger on the right side of the mouse all the way to the front but the main problem is this mouse sensor isn't on the center and uses cheap plastic but no doubt this mouse has the perfect shape for me though.

Any other mouse recommendations probably something like Logitech anywhere mx shape but in wired mode? Dosent have to be a gaming mouse.
