post #1711 of 6207
Looking for a fingertip grip mouse, these are my priorities:
  • Small & light
  • Good sensor
  • Optical with 800 DPI step
  • Short (wide is fine, I just don't want it to be long like, say, G400)

Don't mind prediction either way. Side buttons would be preferred, but not crucial. Price doesn't matter, but I don't expect non-laser mice to be very expensive.

Feel free to suggest a mouse even if it doesn't match all that stuff I listed thumb.gif

I've been using a Roccat Pyra for the past year. I like the shape, size, and the sensor is OK, but it has terrible build quality and is no longer usable. I'd buy a new one, but it's discontinued... So now I'm using CM Xornet. It's also OK in most regards, but I don't like the DPI steps (500 is too low, 1,000 is too high). I'd get a CM Spawn for different DPI steps, but it's apparently discontinued as well.

Hello, Could you recomend me something? Please.

details:
current mouse: MS WMO 1.1. 400dpi @500Hz (previous DA 3G 1800dpi)
resolutions in game: 1920x1200
grip: mostly finger grip (can I change it maybe?)
My hand is about 20cm lenght, from the middle about 13cm
sensitivity: 3.4 quake live, accel about 0.06
~30cm/360
windows: 6/11 or raw input
fps games
mousepad: SS Qck+ (previous Goliathus Speed was better)
amount of buttons: don't care
sensor: need to be perfect, no prediction, no angle snapping, no jittering etc.
only wired and optical
prefered light than heavy
LoD, WMO got low, DA high I can handle both
budget: would like to know all possibilities

I liked WMO and DA shape, but would like to have lighter mouse.
In my office O have Logitech M-BT58

seems to be comfortable too for me. Maybe g100s could be good for me too?

I was considering SS Kana v2, Zowie EC1 evo, Zowie AM, Zowie FK, Logitech g100s...

Which will be best for me?

Still looking for additional input from the rest of the community too.

SS Kana or Kinzu might be something for you.

There are lots of mice that fit your needs, since essentially all your asking for is a light mouse with a good sensor.
FK is a option but might be to thin for you . Kana V2 should be the closest to the WMO shape you are used to.
G100s has the same shape as your office mouse and is light once you removed the weight.
Only problem with G100s is it doesnt have a 3090 sensor, but the only problem with the sensor it uses is relatively low max control speed which shouldn't be a problem with 30/360cm.
Abyssus has the same sensor as the DA and is much lighter. Just need to find a jitter free version wink.gif
Don't know how light the EC1 is, but EC2 should be lighter but might be to small for you.
AM is heavier than the others but still on the lighter side. It's also quite close to the WMO in terms of shape.
BIG Salmosa maybe? Basically a jitter free Abyssus I guess.

But yeah, all the mice you suggested are solid choices, so it all comes down to what shape you like the most.
post #1715 of 6207
Damnit... the problem is the best will be to try some of them at shop, but don't know where wink.gif
But problem is my hands are not that small and I have fingergrip, so small mice are not good, but for finger grip should be light mouse. ;p so should be guite big and light ;]

yea I know DA and WMO shape... so its hard to say if other shape... for eg. G400 will be comfortable, I think not, looks weird for me.

here is comparison of Zowie mice:

Forgot to mention about AM, it seems to be lighter.

SS kana 2 was my first thought... also is cheaper than Zowies, so maybe i will get one. And takasta got similiar hands and like it xD
http://www.overclock.net/t/1419598/steelseries-kana-v2-review-by-takasta-updated-white-version

WMO got low max speed too wink.gif Abyssus could be too short.

Thanks. Will try to check somewhere some of tchem in real ;p

1. What's your grip style?

Mainly palm, but that's more a function of the mouse than anything. I have pretty small hands, so it's hard to do anything else on most mice. In other words, I'm not married to it.

2. What's your sensitivity?

Generally low (400-800), though I do use as high as 3k on occasion

3. What's your maximum budget?

$100

4. Do you want additional buttons?

Yes. Dpi switches and at least 3 additional buttons (I use everything on my current G500)

5. What games do you play?

Mainly FPS, but a bit of everything else.

6. Do you mind about prediction?

I'd prefer not to have it, but it's not a deal breaker.

7. Other relevant information:

I have lady hands; the G500 is a bit bigger than I'd like. Mice I'm considering at the moment: G500 (bigger than I like, but great otherwise), CM Storm Havoc (same issues as G500), G602. I'm leaning towards the 602.

1. What's your grip style?
Palm and sometimes claw.

2. What's your sensitivity?
400/800 DPI, Generally 1.5 in game.

3. What's your maximum budget?
$75.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Whatever.

5. What games do you play?
Mainly RTS and osu!, but sometimes I play FPS.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I'd rather not have.

7. Other relevant information:
I prefer an optical mouse and I have medium/small hands, and because of that I would need a mouse that is not large or heavy.

Roccat Kone Pure Optical or G400s, perhaps?
post #1719 of 6207
I've been thinking about getting a new mouse for a while now, since the tracking speeds on my IME1.1a and G400 don't feel like they're enough. Although seeing people praise the G400 control speed makes me believe that my G400 is broken.


1. What's your grip style?
Claw.

2. What's your sensitivity?
Low. 50+cm/360 low.

3. What's your maximum budget?
About 100€

4. Do you want additional buttons?
2 extra buttons would be nice, but not absolutely necessary.

5. What games do you play?
Mostly FPS and Osu!

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Slight prediction doesn't matter as long as it doesn't get in the way too much.

7. Other relevant information:
Control speed. My sensitivity is really low which leads to long swipes and high speeds, so I need to mouse to keep up with it without going ape****.
Also I've always liked small lightweight ambidextrous mice, which is one of the biggest reasons I'm really held back from buying the Deathadder 2013 or a new G400.
Weight is really one thing that I have a problem with, especially with mice like the G400 that weight well over 120 grams.
As a guideline to what I'm looking for, Kinzu is a really nice mouse, but with it's fair share of tracking problems it's not really an option itself.

EDIT: added a bit more preferences

You dont like them because they are both palm / palm hybrid grip mice. Try something like the Corsiar M90/M95 or see if you can find an old Razer Diamondback.
