1. What's your grip style?
I can adapt to anything but i prefer palm.

2. What's your sensitivity?
800-1200 dpi 6/11 Ws

3. What's your maximum budget?
60€

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes 2 on the side

5. What games do you play?
LOL and BF3 mostly

6. Do you mind about prediction?
No

7. Other relevant information:
I had g400, great mouse , switches tend to soften over time, somehow i didnt find as precise at fps as my avago 3090 mices(deathadder,rat3).
Currently i have Savu, really impressive build quality, only some tear at the left side grip, buttons construction is top notch , both require the same pressure, THIS is crucial, on my da 2013 the left button was much stifer than the right one(the button conects to the switches at diferent hights).

Savu after 8 months has 700k clicks on the left switch , and 7 million on the right, and they are still working properly with no major diference in feel.
Im getting tired of savu because its a really small mouse, and i can only claw it .

I loved the deathadder grip, the precision , but, i felt it was poor built, and the interface between the buttons and the switches were crap, making them double click after some time .

I want the precision and the shape of the deathader (or similiar), a little bit smaller, and with the construction quality of the savu(buttons mostly).

Zowie am seems like a solid choice , but i would love a second opinion.
Thanks in advance.

^ You liked DA shape, why not go Zowie EC1 instead of AM? It's got great build quality (if you get one with good scroll wheel, those apparently tend to skip) and it's same shape as DA

Having a higher sensitivity gives you more options in mice because you won't be limited by certain mice or dpi steps.

If you like the ergonomic feel of the kone you could enjoy the DA or g400, I recommend those first because they have very good performance for the larger mice category.

I see, there is EC1 evo also, do you still recomend the EC1 over the latest one?

Evo definitely, the older one has prediction and other problems.

...should you be interested, the white one has plastic coating which works better if you don't sweat much, black is rubbery which only sticks when your hands are sweaty

1. What's your grip style?
Fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity?
400, 800, 1200 with 6/11

3. What's your maximum budget?
50 dollars

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Doesn't matter, although back button is nice

5. What games do you play?
Starcraft brood war, any interesting games that come out

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I would rather not have it

7. Other relevant information:
I need about 400 dpi for brood war in fullscreen mode (640 x 480). 800-1200 is enough for me at 1080p. I have read threads saying 6/11 is the only windows sensitivity that should be used. Other threads say any is fine as long as it is not above 6/11. Others say any even number up to 6 is fine. Can someone clear this up for me? If I don't have to use 6/11, it opens up a lot of possible high dpi mice like the spawn that I could use by compensating with less than 6/11 sensitivity.

1. What's your grip style?
it rests in my palm
2. What's your sensitivity?
800-1600 mostly i can go higher but never try it to often
3. What's your maximum budget?
trying to get a mouse and new pad for around 100 USD
4. Do you want additional buttons?
maybe two on the side
5. What games do you play?
Battlefield and FPS
6. Do you mind about prediction?
never knew much about it but heard its bad for fps


My Microsoft sidewinder sensor failed on me so a new mouse is needed fast.

I prefer mice that are intended specifically for right hands. I think i typically use a hybrid of a finger tip and a palm grip, where my thumb, index, and middle fingers make contact solely through the tips, but then on the right side, the length of my ring finger along with part of my palm contacts the mouse. I often change my sensitivity based on the game i'm currently playing a lot of, typically playing around the 9-13 inches per 360 mark, but could easily see myself lowering it a bit more. Have used as low as 24 inches per 360 in the past 800-1200 dpi is cool. Want 2 buttons on the side, along with scroll wheel and 2 main buttons. I hate prediction.

With steam starting to support games in Linux, i've started toying with Linux but most companies don't support linux, which is a problem considering most games don't allow you to lower the sensitivity in game enough if your mouse has the default highest dpi setting.

I appreciate light mice. I currently am using a deathadder that i won, and hate the slick sides. Currently using a steelseries Qck+ pad, like the size, but its too thin, i can feel bumps through it too easily. I prefer soft pads because from my experience hard ones tend to noticeably warp. Also soft pads are easier to pack for LANs.

I was thinking of the Zowie EC2 because i read it can change sensitivities and polling rate physically on the mouse with no drivers. A little concerned because i heard they are pretty picky on the type of mouspad you use. For mouspads i was thinking something from either Artisan or CM storm, but was thinking i'd probably want to decide on a mouse first.

Also durability is a concern, i game a lot and use relatively low sensitivities so wear and tear on both the mouse and mousepad takes place at a fairly rapid pace.
