post #6001 of 6086
Hello everyone
I'm looking to replace my CM Storm Spawn with a more modern mouse and want to try something new (i.e. not a CM Storm Xornet II).
What's your grip style?
My hand is roughly 17cm long and 10 cm wide and using tiny laptop mice and the Spawn itself over the years has left me with a weird "mostly claw" grip style (mouse 1 and 2 button fingers always curled; sometimes my palm butts up against the back of the mouse, sometimes I look down and notice that I'm only using my fingertips)

What's your sensitivity?
I just got used to using the fastest dpi step on the Spawn. It's always translated motion well enough to my liking that I rarely tinker with sensitivity settings in game unless something is way off.

What's your maximum budget?
Let's say less than $70 USD.

Do you want additional buttons?
I like at least 2 buttons on the side and some kind of button or buttons up top to switch DPI are nice.

What games do you play?
CS:GO, Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1, StarCraft 2

Do you mind about prediction?
Not sure. Never payed attention to whether my Spawn had any or not.

Other relevant information:

I tried a Deathadder, a G502, and a G403 in store; they seemed more like palm mice to me (again, my hand is 17cm/10cm) and I'm not sure I can go back to that at this point after using the Spawn and laptop mice for so long. The Abyssus v2 was the only mouse at the store on display that felt close to right, which leads me to believe I need a shorter mouse, but the Abyssus doesn't have any side buttons.

What's your grip style?
Hybrid claw/palm, I grip my G303 having the base of my hand touching the pad, the part right below the fingers (not sure what it is called) touching a bit above the butt of the mouse (the middle of my hand is not touching anything), while my fingers are arched towards the buttons not too aggressively. I also use my fingers to make adjustements.

What's your sensitivity?
I usually play with around 50cm for a 360° in games, which would translate to around 1.55 to 2.2 sensitivity on CS GO at 400 dpi.
My hand measurements are exactly 18cm in length and 9cm in width.

What's your maximum budget?
I don't care how much I'll spend as long as I'm comfortable.

Do you want additional buttons?
I never use the extra buttons, so I don't care really.

What games do you play?
Shooters in general, some Dota 2 here and there, but mostly CS GO.

Do you mind about prediction?
Don't really know how it works, if it's something like acceleration then I want nothing to do with it.

Other relevant information:

I've used ambidextrous mice the most, I've never tried an ergo shape long enough to make a judgement. The mouse I had most accuracy with was a cheap logitech m100, but it was not particularly comfortable.

My history of mice is the next: Logitech m100 > Logitech G502 (I hated its weight, I disliked its shape, hated its mouse skates, and loved the sensor) > Logitech G303 (I'm very inconsistent with this mouse, sometimes gripping it will cramp me after a while, I also feel I am inconsistent with it due to the lack of a base, that been said when I perform, I'm very accurate.

I'm currently torn between buying a DM1 Pro S which on paper is really good but I've heard constant complaints about the QC. On the other hand there is the Zowie EC2-A which I heard many good things about, but I keep hearing complaints about the coating, but I don't think I would really mind since I care mostly about shape. My hands get sweaty after playing a bit by the way. There's also the doubt in the back of my mind that the Zowie FK1 would work for me too.

Keep in mind that I cannot try any of these mice beforehand, I need to import them since they are not even available where I live.

I know that feeling, bro frown.gif
I have EC2-A benq edition and while my hand was barely having any sweat on Logitech G Pro - with EC2-A it's a rain of sweat, but the shape is quite good. Also I think there is a barely noticeable difference compared to 3360, but it might be placebo. But it's good, the difference is far from being enough to chose a less comfortable shape and 3360, better shape and 3310 is an easy choice.

Is it easily liftable? Every time I flick my mouse I reposition it to the center of my mousepad (sort of what pro player c9 Shroud does) so I do it quite often, but if it falls off my hands it's a no go.

No, I think it's close to impossible to drop it thanks to smart shell design. But I never had such a problem with g pro, razer abyssus or ss sensei, so I'm not sure.

My favourite mouse (now relegated to basic office tasks in work) is the Logitech G9. Had it since release, still going strong.
Recently had a Razer Naga, which was RMA'd after 6 months due to a crap sensor. Its replacement, Mamba TE Chroma, is now doing the same thing with the sensor and completely freezes at random until it is unplugged form the PC...
I need a second mouse to take around with my new laptop, prefer a wireless mouse for this purpose. I'd like something similar to the G9 if at all possible.

Onto something else though, is anything considered a suitable successor to the Logitech G9? I intend to replace this Mamaba TE asap and the retailer I got it from recently started stocking the Logitech G900 Chaos which may fit both roles of wired for home use and wireless with laptop.

palm

CS:GO 800 DPI @ 1.0 Sens. Other games 1600 DPI

Yes

Other relevant information:

Currently running a Mionix Naos 7000 and I love how well it fits my hand. However the sensor is leaving a lot to be desired and I'm currently looking for a replacement. The sensor in this thing will randomly stop responding in multiple directions which is causing issues in competitive games.

Grip: Relaxed-ish Claw Grip: Thumb on side, index finger on LMB, middle and ring finger sit together on RMB, and pinkie rests on side.

Sensitivity: Very slow right now, but I switch very frequently. Don't know my good sensitivity.

Budget: Budget's not really an issue

Buttons: Don't need extra buttons

Games: Quake and Overwatch

Sensor: Perfect sensor - at least a 3310 or equivalent.


My hand is 20 - 21 x 10 - 11cm. I've been having a really hard time finding a mouse I can just sit down and play games with comfortably.

The four shapes I could almost get used to were the FK1, the Kone Pure Military, the ScreaM One, and the G403. FK1 felt very maneuverable but cramped the right edge of my palm. Kone Pure Military can feel pretty nice sometimes and also feels very maneuverable but the right curve tends to slip out of my hand. The ScreaM One felt right at first but it has those stupid DeathAdder finger grooves on LMB and RMB which make claw grip hell, and it also cramped the right edge of my palm. G403 felt awesome at first but it was just a bit small.

I've tried every Zowie, the DeathAdder, all of the 3366 Logitechs, Sensei, Abyssus, Rival 300, and the NAOS 7000. I just wanna play some video games comfortably, man. You average-sized palm grippers seem to have it so easy.

I'm probably going to end up rma'ing my razer deathadder twice now, so im looking for a mouse with similar size/dimensions as it. (i really like the shape)

What's your grip style?
Fingertip apparantly

What's your sensitivity?
800 i guess, i stick around 650 i think

What's your maximum budget?
I live internationally but i have my eyes set on a logitech g403/steelseries rival 300/zowie fk1 (benq)

Do you want additional buttons?
just front and back (the ones u use on webpages to go back and forth)

What games do you play?
Solidworks :^))) I play anything

Do you mind about prediction?
Dunno

Other relevant information:
Nah not much, just would like a mouse similar to the razer deathadder, the three mice i listed above
(logitech g403/steelseries rival 300/zowie fk1 (benq)) are basically what im set on buying. Just would like to know if any have really high failure rates/flimsy build quality etc/similar in size to deathadder
