Then get a G400.

Yea, both mice I've used have prediction. Don't care about it since I've been fine with it. I'd actually argue that it helps aiming since people walk in straight lines on a map (on battlements or a platform, they usually strafe or move towards one end or the other. No jittering like we're in 3dspace haha

Gonna hold off on the G400 recommendation by Art Vanely. I'm reading mixed reviews the more I search and here's a PM, I'm thinking of waiting for BST's or ... finding a zowie even though everyone is trying to dump them... >_>

I have yet to try the zowie. G400 sucks for fingertip, its sort of mutated my grip into a claw/palm over time. It's a long, heavy mouse, but the sensor is flawless at 400 and 800 dpi.

The Abyssus I had was really good for claw grip actually. The \_/ shape makes it easy to lift, and it's extremely light. Cheap too. Same sensor as Deathadder 3.5g but different firmware (bout 4 m/s perfect control but high liftoff, maybe 3 cd's or 3 1/2). I might switch back to that one if nothing else good comes out before next year. I gutted mine to repair my deathadder which I use at work.

Wheel mouse optical is the best for fingertip shape and weight wise, but the sensor has neg accel past 1.5m/s which is relatively easy to hit for most competitive low sens fps players. I can use it fine in terms of perfect control, but the switches are not as responsive as omrons, i think they are huano switches.

Hope this helps, if I come across something better I'll let you know

I've tried gaming with prediction both on and off, and I honestly can't tell a difference. It make such a small difference when your mouse is tracking properly that it really doesn't matter; it does make a massive difference when your mouse is jittering, though.

The only problem I have found with the G400 is that it has a high LOD and the scroll wheel isn't great; other than that it works perfectly.

Can't remember if I have posted in here, but I already have a list of mice to choose from just would like more opinions before I order.

I use a fingertip/ palm hybrid, play at around 4500DPI, my max budget is around £90, I play mostly FPS and I'd prefer at least two buttons on the side but not a crazy amount.

I have a list of:

G9X £49.99
CM Storm Spawn £39.99
M60 £48.35
CM Inferno £35.52
G500 £47.40
Sensei RAW £59.98
Roccat Savu £47.62
Naos 5000 £59.00
Razer Mamba 2012 £99.47
Razer Imperator £59.94
Razer Taipan £74.87

Any ones I should particularly avoid?

Cheers guys.

Why exactly are you using 4500DPI? I can't imagine anyone needing more than 1800 DPI.

I've heard good things about the G9x.
The CM storm spawn only goes up to 3600DPI, and I've heard it has some problems. It should only be used up to 1800 DPI.
The M60 is a bit heavy.
the G500 is awesome; I have a G400, and it has a very comfortable shape, but it's not the easiest to fingertip grip.
I've heard a lot of good things about the Sensei.
The Savu also only goes up to 3600 DPI, and should really only be used up to 1800 DPI. It's a good mouse though
All of the Razer mice you quoted have phillips twin eye sensors, which have trouble on some cloth surfaces, so I'd recommend them only for a hard pad.
The mamba is wireless, and I don't recommend a wireless mouse

I've only used an ADSN 3095, S3888 and PTE sensor, so I can't really comment on how the ADSN 9500/9800 mice will perform.
The PTE sensor mouse I had seemed to track well on hard surfaces, even at very high DPI settings.

I just don't like moving my arm around all that much to play a fast paced FPS, at 4500 I only have to move around 1cm to do 360 degrees. biggrin.gif

Cheers for the info, I've whittled down the list a bit now. +rep.

How are you still able to aim?

I don't know, I've just got used to it, I might see if I can move up to 5000 soon.

You're going the wrong direction.

If someone shoots me in the back, half the time I can spin around and go prone before they can kill me.
