Was there actually a uni-45g topre on elitekeyboards?!?!

Thats a mechanical rotary encoder (ALPS EC10E1220503), not optical, and probably the best out there. I spare you comments regarding the mechanical design of that wheel structure. lets just say it is a common design.

I know that everybody loves the omron switches, mainly due to the long lifecycle, crisp feeling and good sound - but the tolerance for OF and RF is huge and you can get lucky and unlucky with them.

the inside picture makes me assume that the mouse could just maybe jitter if you hold still and simply click. Somebody has a sample in hand and can verify that?

No it's still, no movement at all.

I'm thinking about buying the Spawn, but I'm really not sure if the shape will work for me. I'm currently using an Abyssus with claw grip. I'm really torned, because as much as it is uncomfortable (sharp edge, glossy side) and flawed (jitter, high LOD, instability because of the ridiculously small mouse feet) my aim just became truly amazing with it (in high level competitive gaming). Picking up the mouse and repositioning it is a real treat compared to the DeathAdder.
I'm hoping that the Spawn can provide the same performance but without the disadvantages.
I'm posting a few pics about my grip in hope, that a Spawn user might used a small mice with this grip (on the right side) and can give some info, how well it works with the Spawn, or at least, how well it can be picked up, without that much support from the ring finger.

Thank you in advance!

P.s.: sorry for the large pics, I can edit them if needed.

It's easier to lift a mouse with two fingers on the right side and Abyssus is lighter than Spawn. Rubber grips help a bit though and it's still quite light.

2shellbonus: that would be awesome!
In my opinion, I hold the Abyssus the way I do, because if I straighten out my ring finger, than I can't move the mouse back and forward at all (and it's harder to pick up), but the Spawn is shorter, so I will get that ~2 cm movement I need vertically for fine adjustments. Also, without the support of the ring finger, I lose a huge amount of control (grip) with the Abyssus.
Also, I think I play weirdly, because I always reposition my mouse after a few cm even though I play(ed) with low sens (33 cm/360 now, but I used to play with 52 cm/360, no accel). With the high LOD this made my movement quite jerky. I guess the reason for this is that the tiny feet and the edgy bottom is annoying for low sens, as it is digging into the cloth mousepad quite often if you are not keeping the mouse absolutely flat.
