Since I have been feeling so indecisive about some of the stuff I have looked at lately, might as well post in this thread.1. What's your grip style?
100% claw.2. What's your sensitivity?
I keep my current mouse around 1000 dpi. Occasionally I switch to 2000 dpi.3. What's your maximum budget?
$75 (before tax, ship) is absolute max but would prefer something a bit cheaper. I don't really see the point in mice over that price considering what can all be found for $70 and cheaper.4. Do you want additional buttons?
Two left side buttons minimum. I'm ok with more but no MMO mouse.5. What games do you play?
FPS, RTS, MMO, RPG, everything pretty equally.6. Do you mind about prediction?
Preferably not but I know I've gotten used to mice who have had it in the past so I'll leave this open.7. Other relevant information:
Right handed or ambi is fine.
Since I like to claw, big mice have generally been kind of uncomfortable to me in the past even though I don't have small hands.
Do not recommend a Razer mouse. I will never buy anything from them again. That brand is dead to me.

See below for more info that may be relevant.....8. Current mice I have shopped and reasons why:
Zowie Gear EC2 eVo = Very "standard" looking setup. No bull****. Not sure though. Saw some people talk about build quality being suspect?
9. Gaming Mouse Ownership History:
Cooler Master Storm Spawn = Shape looks good. Sounds like firmware is a mixed bag. Most people seem to say with the right firmware performance is fine?
Cooler Master Recon = Seems like an evolution of the above for the most part. Worried about the shape being too ergo curved. Wondering if the sides are vertical enough for a good claw grip.
Steelseries Sensei Raw = Seems decent enough. Near the limit of my budget.
Roccat Savu = I've seen a few posts here say that this mouse has a very good hardware setup; high tracking speed, etc. Shape looks ok-ish. Left side buttons look strangely placed on the "corner" as opposed to the side? Near the limit of my budget.
Razer Boomslang 2000, Razer Viper, Razer Copperhead, Razer Deathadder (3 of the early models), Razer Lachesis.
