1. What's your grip style?
I'm thinking something in between palm and claw. My palm is completely flat on the mose, but fingers are slightly bent.
2. What's your sensitivity?
Low sens. I use 1800 dpi n my DA with win sens at 6. I usually end up dragging the sensitivity bar on most game to around 1-3 bars.
3. What's your maximum budget?
Not really an issue but i guess $100 would be max for me.
4. Do you want additional buttons?
The thing about extra buttons is i do want to use them, but the buttons on the DA feel flimsy that i can't use them well.
5. What games do you play?
Mostly lots of top down stuff. Big priority on MoBAs and Diablo 3.
6. Do you mind about prediction?
Yes, need it off.
7. Other relevant information:
My biggest priorities would probably be, no pred, zero acceleration, and a high control speed. Wired would be nice as i don't care for wireless anyway. Low LOD would probably be a good thing too since i play ridiculously low sens.
I've been reading some articles on the net and the info i get is that i should stay away from laser sensors. I can' seem to find a good optical mouse with the specs i put up though.
As much as i love my adder the rubberized top is starting to melt, and the flimsy side buttons are really starting to annoy me.

EDIT: Added LOD requirement.

If you play a lot of MOBAs, then you'll probably like the Naga Hex from Razer. My friend just bought the mouse to use with Diablo 3 and GW2, and I use it for League of Legends.

Mostly Palm, sometimes Fingertip. I have fairly large hands. I currently own a Razer DeathAdder 3g, and it is a perfect fit for my hand.
2. What's your sensitivity?
Honestly unsure. I don't really fiddle around with it too much. For example when I firtst booted up my sig rig a few days ago, I just plugged in the DeathAdder, and am happy with where the sensitivity is right now without making adjustments.
3. What's your maximum budget?
None provided the mouse is worth the price.
4. Do you want additional buttons?
5 Buttons have done the job so far, so I cannot think of a reason to increase more. R/L, Scroll, and 2 by the thumb for website navigation work just fine for me.
5. What games do you play?
LoL, some RTS, RPG, and will be spending a large quantity of time on D3 upon release.
6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not really one way or the other.
7. Other relevant information:
Input anything else you want.

Nothing really necessary in the extras department. I have a friend who went from the DeathAdder to the Mamba, and he loves it, but I have had bad luck with wireless mice in the past.
In Summary:
You guys may simply recommend I stick with the DeathAdder, and if so, I am ok with that, but with new mice coming out all the time I wanted to see about other, possibly better options. Thanks for the time and help.

SInce you have large hands the Logitech G9x may work for you as it has two shells for the body, a wider one and a slimmer one. The buttons are a little sensitive so if you like that then this may be up your alley. The Razer Mamba is decent too, and can be hooked up with the charging cable to be used as a wired mouse so you don't need to use the wireless option.

I can't speak to the m60 or the kova, but the g9x is a nice mouse, albeit the right and left mouse button are a little sensitive for me. But I do enjoy using it when not using my Zowie AM or Naga Hex.

I have heard that the G9x is a great mouse ... very small though and it feels cheaply built ... is this true ?

I have big hands to, and have recently bought the Kova+ and Sensei, to replace my aging G9.

Kova+ is pretty nice, however it's too slim for my hands and I have given up using it because it puts too much strain on my palms.

Sensei well I have problems with the profiles and support has been useless so far, they update my ticket once a week with new redundant questions and suggestions, SteelSeries is really getting on my nerves. The mouse is pretty great in shape and form and the sensor is silky smooth really nice for desktop use. I reckon I will ship it back to them though just in spite.

Currently looking at the Naga Hex, I am just afraid that my thumb will 'land' too far ahead of the 6 buttons. I couldn't really use the G700 thumb buttons very well because they where too far back for me.

Anyone here using the Naga hex with big hands?

I feel that it it's pretty well build. The only problems is that Logitech cheaps out on the secondary buttons like the thumb buttons and wheel buttons using cheap membrane switches with poor feedback. The freewheeling wheel is a **** idea because when in non-freewheel mode it's almost impossible to press it without turning the wheel.

If you have large hands the Hex will probably be too small for you, and you'll have the 6-button issue that you mention. Mine rests a little ahead of the rest there, around the 1 and 2 key, but they aren't hard to avoid pressing. But I have small hands, so the extra buttons may be harder for you to press.

The G9x has its pros and cons, like all other mouses.

Yes pardon if I sounded too negative there, the G9 has been my mainstay since its release, and I am pretty picky when it comes to my hardware especially my input devices, so yeah it's overall a great mouse.

Thanks for the heads up on the Naga, too bad though, I really don't know where to turn now except perhaps the RAT7 MMO.

The G9x is my favourite mouse, however, it has one drawback: the middle mouse button.

IMO, the Sensei actually has great buttons, smooth tactile operation on all of them (all of them microswitches). The Kova+ is pretty nice also in that regard, with microswitches on everything except the mousewheel, but it's designed pretty well and still easy to use.

It's a bit funny because my ancient Logitech MX510 has microswitches on every button including the mousewheel, and all of them are tactile and easily pressed. I don't know about the new G400 or even the MX518, but the G9 and G700 is a big step back in that regard. It's just that the G9's shape is absolutely perfect for fingertip grip, perfect width and everything, and it's quite durable.
