Good Fingertip Mouse and Mouse Pad

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I know there are a lot of mouse recommendation threads out there, but even after reading them all and going to the store to see them in person, I'm still not quite sure which mouse and mouse pad to get. My problem mainly lies with my current mouse, the Logitech G7. While I have loved this mouse over the years, I feel like I have out grown it. The reason I say this is because I have been transitioning to fingertip grip over the past 6 months, and feel as though I am at the point where the mouse no longer fits me well. Since I have small hands, the G7 is a little heavy for me, and the fact that it is not designed for fingertip make it difficult for me to handle it properly. In addition to the mouse not fitting my hand well, I have also outgrown the 2000 dpi sensor. I am able handle battlefield 3 beta on the highest sensitivity setting possible for my mouse. The only problem is that I am unable to have the precision that I desire because the combination of the low dpi, and my static friction problem which I will elaborate on next.

The second half of my problem lies within the fact that I don't have a mouse pad. The biggest frustration I have right now is the fact that I like such a sensitive mouse setting, that I am unable to aim accurately due to the static friction on my desk. Thus I will need a very low friction pad to go with my mouse.

Here are my requirements in desending order of importance.

-Good for fingertip grip with smallish hands
-Good, on the fly adjustable dpi
-Very light
-Lowest friction possible
-Extra Buttons
-Preferably wireless
-lowest price possible

I have friends with different mice, and after trying a few, the following is my absolute do not pick list:

-Razer Mamba
-Razer Deathadder
-Razer Imperator
-Logitech G100, G300, G400, G5, G518, G500 -the last 3 are way too similar to my G7

I have tried a R.A.T. 5, and I do like the way it fits in my hand, my only concern being that it is a little too wide. A few other mice that I like in my hand, based on feeling them on the outside of the plastic mold on the box are: g9x, razer lachesis, and orochi. I like the orochi because it is bluetooth and I take my mouse with me for gaming on my laptop. Let me also stress that I REALLY like the sniper button the R.A.T. Also, wireless is preferred becuase I keep my mouse and keyboard in the rollout drawer in my desk, and I also take my mouse with me for gaming and CAD as I said earlier. Finally, I know nothing about mouse pads, so if you guys could recommend me one depending on the mouse I choose, that would be awesome. Also keep in mind that I would like the lowest static friction possible.

Thanks in advance everyone.

Zowie Mico or CM Storm Spawn/Xornet

None of the above are wireless though. I think wired mice are usually lighter than wireless.

Steelseries Sensei might fit your bill, but it's not cheap.

As far as pads go, I like the Artisan Hayate for cloth. I heard the Mionix Propus 380 is good for hard pads.

Definitely not the Mico. I forgot to add this, but need extra buttons and on the fly dpi switching.
