For Sensei, if you are not especially sensitive to up to 5% variation in your mouse movement, then you will be fine with it. Moreover, its sensor allows you to adjust DPI in smaller steps so you can get closer to 1400DPI (i.e. if you are fine with that variation, you can consider other mice that use the same sensor).
edit: Your grip looks like "Claw Paw" thumb.gif There's a club somewhere around here dedicated to this grip style, but there doesn't seem to be many members redface.gif I have a similar grip and I find Savu to be very good for it. My hand is kinda small though (18.5cm)
Do you mean fingertip grip? That's what it looks like.

Vogs himself says it is close to palm than claw... I doubt it is fingertip.

Note that his palm is placed against the back of his mouse, his fingers are lifted off the mouse, but the "fingerprint" part of his fingers are touching the mouse buttons in a flat position. Fits the definition of "Clawpaw", which is a variation of claw/palm grip.

I already own the Kova+ and love it, and I know these are 3 different price tiers, but out of these 3, which one would be the best?

Kova+, CM Storm Recon or Razer Taipan? I have sort of small hands and I use a palm grip, and I'm mentioning these because I'm a lefty.

The Zowie AM is good for left handed people.
Out of those three, I'd say that the Kova+ is probably the best (it uses an A3090 sensor, right?), but there are better mice out there.

1. What's your grip style? Claw grip (I used to use palm grip but then somehow transitioned to claw grip when I moved from DA 1800 to XAI)

2. What's your sensitivity? 1800dpi - Medium sensitivity?

3. What's your maximum budget? Around 75 bucks, can stretch it though if need be.

4. Do you want additional buttons? Not necessary, but would be nice to have. (Rarely use them)

5. What games do you play? Counterstrike, Battlefield, a little of COD, and DOTA.

6. Do you mind about prediction? Not sure about this one.

7. Other relevant information: My hands are pretty big.

I would like to give some input (side note) about the problem I just had. A few days ago, I purchased the DA black edition expecting it to work really well for me (Like back when I had the DA 1800). It turns out though that I just realized that because of the XAI, I gradually transitioned into a Claw grip user. After doing more researches, I came up with a conclusion that I will sell the DA black edition and get the cash to buy something else. Sad to be honest, the DA black looks really sexy. However claw grip on the DA just wouldn't cut it for me. I am looking at the CMSTORM Spawn, however any recommendations will be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I think so. Also, that new AM-FG looks damn nice as well.

By the way, love the avatar of bloody 8-Bit Mickey from To Boldly Flee biggrin.gif.

An ambidextrious mouse that is suited for claw would probally fit you best then.

What are the reasons you don't like the xai though? If its because of acceleration problems and you have a clothpad, then a sensei/sensei raw will give you a better performance and probally be the most obvious choice if you can live the small amount of acceleration.

The next obvious choice would be the zowie AM. A similar shape to the xai although it feels a bit different because the sides are more / \. Another option could be the cm storm recon. If it doesn't need to be ambidextrious there are other options too, like the roccat sota. Since your hands are big the cm storm spawn would probally be too small

I'd recommend the Logitech G400. I came from trying to do a claw grip on a DA to the G400, and it's much more comfortable. The steeper angle on the back of the G400 is a lot easier to do a claw grip on than the deathadder, if you have large hands.

I only have a few complaints about the XAI, and that is that my pinky kinda hurts when I use it (VERY MINOR problem), and the second one being my left click just started doing double clicks so I guess it's time to change it. (around 1.5-2 yrs old, heavy use.) I'm looking into the sensei raw also, I guess that would be the most logical choice for me.

Thank you very much for both of your inputs, it helped me a lot!
