I have dry hands as well, the top is pretty slippery but the rubber sides are actually realy good. I can lift it very easy due to the side grips.

I've been trying to find a new mouse, and I keep getting stuck. Help would be greatly appreciated.
Quote:
1) What's my grip style?
Weird. I have a palm like grip, but I arch my fingers slightly off the mouse, but no where near the degree of "claw grip. I like to feel the back of the mouse in my palm, but have my wrist hit the table. I move the mouse, not by gripping it, but usually by passing it around between my fingers like a puck, or holding it by creasing my palm long ways, and moving it that way (like a pair of meditation balls).

Sorry, but i don't really know a simple way to describe my grip.

2) What's my Sensitivity?
X: 4000 Y: 5600 (I believe I increased the vertical sensitivity due to a failing in my current mouse, a RAT 7, which is falling apart after only 1.5 years.)

3) What's my maximum budget?

Lets say $200. I wouldn't mind saving money, however.

4) Do you want additional buttons?

YES! but not a billion like the Naga, 4-6 spread around the mouse (not on the thumb). Also would not count center buttons below the mouse wheel, or right-side buttons, as I never hit them (pinky is screwy, middle finger is long).

5) What games?
MMOs, RPGs, Action/Adventure.. FPS's only with RPG elements.

6) Prediction?
Rather not, I use a high sensitivity anyway, and can make precise movements on my own.

7) Other..

Favorites, but not necessary: Rubberized Surfaces, Metal Fixtures, Weight, all make a mouse feel nice and solid. 4.5" is as short in length as I want to go, and that's where its already starting to become uncomfortable. The same with width at 2.5". Wider seems better. I use a hardened black leather mouse pad. Wired preferrable, hate changing batteries in game.

Any thoughts? Ideas?

Ones I am currently considering:
Mad Catz MMO 7 (Though, hesitant due somewhat poor experience with Rat 7.)
Genius GX Gila (Buttons spread around is nice, worried might be too small)
Perixx Mx-3200 (one of my favorite mice was similar to the Kensington Slimblade, but not enough buttons)
Corsair Vengeance M95 (not sure I like having so many buttons around my thumb)

MMO 7. Love the mouse to death, but the sensor is so crap its not worth it. Replaced it twice in 3 months.
Genius GX Gila. Not sure, never heard of it til now.
Perixx MX-3200. Looks cool, but also looks as though you should have gotten a Razer Diamondback when they were out. The Thermaltake 10M is similar to this.
Corsair Vengeance M95. If your a palm grip, dont bother with this one, its very much a claw/fingertip mouse.

My suggestion, take a look at the Logitech G602. Dont worry about the sensitivity being lower, its an optical mouse so you need less to get the same amount. I went from using about 4500DPI on my MMO 7 to about 1600 on my G602. All the side buttons are super easy to hit. You wont hit them by accident, so no worries there, but you know exactly which button you do hit when you want to.

1. What's your grip style?
Fingertip in most games, tends to get a little bit closer to palm (but not entirely) in relaxed windows use.

2. What's your sensitivity?
I have a Qpad CT Medium and I try to find a sensitivity where I can move edge to edge on the screen with about 3-4 inches of mouse movement.

3. What's your maximum budget?
100-150$ maybe, could go higher for the perfect mouse.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes. I don't require a crazy amount of extra buttons like on the Naga, but more than two thumbbuttons would be an improvement over my current mouse. The dream mouse also has tilt-clicking on the scroll wheel but dreams might have to stay dreams...

5. What games do you play?
Guild Wars 2, Civ V, HoMM (most versions), Minecraft, Total Wars series, some old school RTS sporadically (SC, WC3, AoE2)

6. Do you mind about prediction?
As long as it's not too much I'm ok.

7. Other relevant information:
Corded is a must, braiding optional. Button activation force is important, I don't like some of Razers flimsy buttons you can accidentally click by looking at it the wrong way, I want medium to heavy activation force. The shape is semi-important, I currently use a Steelseries Ikari Laser and that's the type of shape I prefer.

1. What's your grip style?
Right now as i use the sensei its somewhat between fingertip/palm

2. What's your sensitivity?
1000-1150 no accel (as far as possible with sensei)

3. What's your maximum budget?
doesnt matter i doubt theres alot of mice over 150

4. Do you want additional buttons?
2 side buttons will do

5. What games do you play?
League of Legends, shooters for fun (bf stuff)

6. Do you mind about prediction?
prefer not

7. Other relevant information:
i was looking at the g400s but i read somewhere that the left to right goes farther then right to left (im really OCD)
atm i have the sensei which has a laser, im not sure if optical is better than laser ive seen some people say graphic designers use laser for the higher resolution...

So you refuse to buy g400s because one forum member said there was a weird bug and got proven wrong? If Sensei's sensor doesn't bother you then that said bug definitely shouldn't either, even if it was there.

Anyway, if you are coming from sensei I'd suggest picking up an EC1 or DA 3.5g (preferably not the new model, it sounds all around fishy). The shapes are close to Sensei except suit better palm and still good for fingertip.

i tried to buy the g400s today, but the stores were all out, i want to buy it nearby so i can return it

also had a feel on the DA, feels quite nice too.

also, do you think that those graphic designers were right? that because of the bigger resolution the laser mice where better?

thank you smile.gif

Hmm, well things of course depend on what you are using the mouse for. If you have 2 4k displays lined up then I can see big dpi being not useless tongue.gif Apart from that, you shouldn't look at the dpi numbers much.

nothing to do with how sensitive (accurate) or precice the laser is? like micromovements and such?

How do people like the more inexpensive side of the Coolermaster lineup (Xornet, Spawn, Recon)?
