Q. Do you want additional buttons?
A. It wouldn't hurt to have any (no preference).

Q. What games do you play?
A. Third-Person Shooters (Twin-Stick Shooters), First-Person Shooters, Action-Adventure, Platform, Puzzle, RPG (trying out Risk of Rain; Great game).

Q. Do you mind about prediction?
A. Yes. I'd prefer having as little prediction as possible or no prediction at all.

Q. Other relevant information:
Input anything else you want.
some examples: LOD, ambidextrous shape, weight, wireless, non-braided cord, glossy finish, button activation force, driverless, onboard memory, etc


I'd prefer no acceleration (positive or negative: this basically screams optical) and the mouse be wired. Adjustable DPI would be nice (not sure what mice don't have that). The mouse should have fairly good build quality.

The most advised fingertip mouse is the Razer abyssus shape wise, but if you prefer sensor over shape and have mid sized hands have a look at the roccat savu.
If you dont mice acceleration you could go for a Logitech 9x and there is awell the CM Storm Xornet or Spawn.
So you need to make some decisions yourself if you want extra side buttons the abyssus has none.
Savu is praised now for its sensor and is shaped for all gripstyles but you hands must be not bigger then mid sized hands.
After that I would advise you the CM Storm Spawn but if you play on higher dpi settings go for the logitech 9x.
Yes with the logitech you will have some acceleration, but you wont have low malfunction speeds as with the cm storm spawn on higher dpi steps then.
Savu behaves well on all dpi steps btw.

okay so im thinking going with the spawn instead of deathadder (i have fingertip grip, or claw (does anyone really 'claw' it?)). They are both the same price at the right place (~$28).

edit: i hear the storm has a ton of sensor issues and problems?

Thanks. I forgot to throw in that I switch between full fingertip and a palm/fingertip hybrid. I'm using a crappy Logitech Click! Optical which seems to be a palm grip mouse and it works fine for me for fingertip and the palm/fingertip hybrid I use, so that might end up opening up a few more options. I'll try to take a photo tomorrow so you can see.

How large would mid-sized be considered?

just go for savu, if youre hand size is medium sized.
If bigger you can have a look at Razer Deathadder.

My hands fall under medium at a diameter of 3.5 inches.

I've seen some inconsistency with build quality of the Deathadder for some reason (although most people seem to say that it's fine around here). That's slightly concerning. Having to use Synapse 2.0 isn't that great to me but there's nothing really that's wrong with it. Also heard some inconsistencies with the Savu's build quality...

Just started looking at the G400 and Zowei's mice.

Edit: here are 2 photos. Sorry for the horrible quality but you should be able to get an idea of my grips.

Fingertip


Fingertp/palm hybrid (fingertip but with the palm in contact)


I often switch between the 2. I use the hybrid if I want to quickly swipe the mouse for just moving the pointer quickly and just fingertip for more precision.

1. What's your grip style?
Claw
2. What's your sensitivity?
My current Logitech MX400 is 800dpi, though I prefer a bit higher.
3. What's your maximum budget?
50-60 dollars
4. Do you want additional buttons?
At least two on side (back/forward)
5. What games do you play?
TF2, CS:GO, other FPSs and Minecraft
6. Do you mind about prediction?
I don't know what this means.
7. Other relevant information:
I really like my current Logitech MX400 shape, so new one should be of similar shape.

Q. What's your grip style?
A: Fingertip in terms of shape, but 6 points of contact like claw (like the second picture HybridCore posted here)

Q. What's your sensitivity?
A: Fairly low, maybe 25cm/360 (usually set DPI to 800 and put in-game sensitivity to low)

Q. What's your maximum budget?
A. Not really an issue, so I guess I'll just say $100

Q. Do you want additional buttons?
A: Must have side buttons, DPI button(s) would be a bonus but not necessary

Q. What games do you play?
A: FPS, third-person action and such

Q. Do you mind about prediction?
A: Yeah, I want an accurate mouse.

Q. Other relevant information:
A: No acceleration would be good due to lower sensitivity. Not a fan of incredibly contoured mice, probably more of an ambidextrous fan. According to the hand size pic posted here I have larger hands (about 4" in diameter). Comfort is pretty important, as I'm switching from a Storm Spawn since I just don't like how short it is (forces me into pure fingertip rather than my hybrid). Same with the G9x. Features like customizable DPI and such would be nice, but comfort and accuracy are my primary concerns.

Sounds like Roccat Savu would fit you, although it is an ergonomic mouse (slightly contoured), otherwise Zowie AM or FK should be good.

The Savu looks interesting, but I kinda feel like it'd be too small. Doing some more research, it's a shame that the Sensei Raw isn't optical since it seems like it'd be great otherwise. I think I'll probably end up going with one of the Zowie mice, though I really wish I could try them out in person.
