You could go with a g400. It has a perfect sensor, fits a palm/claw grip, and is fairly heavy. You might have to get used to a lower dpi, but that's easily remedied by bumping up in-game sensitivity.

1. What's your grip style?

Claw / Palm hybrid. I grip with my fingers but part of my fingers / palm rest on the G500. More would rest if it was larger and didn't have as much of a drop on it's backside.


2. What's your sensitivity?

5600 DPI w/ minimum in-game sensitivity.


3. What's your maximum budget?

Doesn't matter


4. Do you want additional buttons?

I would like them, 3 at least; but they can be dropped if needed.


5. What games do you play?

CS:GO, Planetside 2, Tribes Ascend, and many single player games.


6. Do you mind about prediction?

Hate it


7. Other relevant information:
I don't like ambidextrous mice
I like heavy mice
I don't think you will find much larger. The SS sensei doesn't have as much of a drop on the backside, so it might be worth getting.
Also, why are you playing at incredibly high DPI with the lowest possible sensitivity? You only need as much DPI as will prevent skipping, otherwise it adds unneeded jitter.

Exactly why I am.

 

The surface I'm using is also incredibly old, the higher DPI tends to work better because some games don't feel right with the higher sensitivity.

 

The best way I can put it, is that with high sensitivity; a flick of the wrist feels less controlled vs high DPI & low sensitivity.

It may be, because of the mat I have.

It could be the mouse; don't really know enough to make a judgement on that one.

 

The mat is a very old Playstation cloth mat I got with FF11 back in the day. I'm going to replace it with a quick mini since I need something that's small (mat wise) due to limited desk space.

and all of that is gone after i got the Kinzu V2

I was going to get the 2013 Deathadder when it comes out, but am having second thoughts after reading your post here about the size and feel of it. I'm currently using a Logitech G5 and am finding it uncomfortable after a few years worth of use. I was thinking the Deathadder might be more comfortable?

Is the Deathadder suited more for people with bigger hands?

actually i read that the new Deathadder will be lighter but same size as the one that i had. it may be good for you, but i just love my new kinzu v2 that even if i break it, i will get another one right away.

I have large hands and found the deathadder to be poorly shaped for my hands.

Anyone got a good suggest for a mouse similar in shape and feel to a G9 without any grips on?

I was wondering if anybody had some suggestions? My only real requirement is a durable middle click durable micro-switch...

Maybe I'll start a new thread to get more people to see my post. redface.gif

Thanks!

Maybe my usage patterns are especially hard on that button, but to me, t looks like a lot of manufacturers put cheaper micro-switches for the middle click.

So, I'm looking for a mouse with a long lasting middle click micro-switch.

Preferably, this mouse would be wireless (with long battery life), under 60 $, somewhat small (claw grip) with an ambidextrous shape, and driverless. Everything else doesn't really matter... I just want a well-made, reliable mouse, with really durable micro-switches.
Any Ideas?

Right now I've got a Steel Series WoW Mouse (the first one) and I really like it (not love, but like) that is hooked up to my desktop. And I've got a couple of MX 518s that are wonderful--one for my laptop and another that I've got at work.

The thing I like about my WoW mouse is that it has so many buttons that are all programmable. I love that it's huge. I love the thumb rest. What I hate about it is that the metallic paint has worn off of where my pointer and index finger and now it's just the ugly bare white plastic. Also, the right mouse button randomly quit working from normal wear and tear 360 days (I don't get mad and beat on my peripherals and think it's just absurd that some people react that way (sorry if that offends anyone)). Luckily, it was still covered in the 1 year warranty. So the paint on the first one wore through within that 1 year, I've had the new replacement ever since and it looks much worse now (between the two I've had it since it first came out, I don't recall the specifiic date). I also don't like the d-pad for the thumb, I usually have all four directions programmed to the same thing since it's hard to get to the right one quickly when they're all attached. In that regard, I really like how the Steel Series Wow Cataclysm mouse has separate buttons for the thumb, but it's ridiculously expensive now as it's not manufactured and I don't want to buy it because I'm wary of the paint being super bad quality again.

I love my mx 518s, when I use them, I usually don't realize that I don't have all of the bonus buttons on it (though I refuse to use any mouse now with less than 5 buttons). Though I do notice it when I play WoW on my laptop. For the most part, I play more casual games when I'm on my laptop. Also, I haven't worn through the material on either of them and the I've had one for almost 10 years.

So that's my background, I'm looking into replacing my WoW mouse with something that still has extra buttons and doesn't have crappy (said mildly) paint. More info, the Razor Naga isn't an option because I don't want a num-pad under my thumb, I want the buttons laid out, and I like having buttons 4 and 5 at the top of the side--not up next to my index finger like the naga (I'm assuming those are button 4 and 5, I've only seen pictures).

So there's a bunch of information, let's see if you mouse gurus know of a solution that can satisfy my specific tastes.

1. What's your grip style? No idea. As I'm sitting here at my work on my mx 518 it feels like claw, but I doubt that's how I grip my wow mouse since it's so huge.

2. What's your sensitivity? 1600 dpi on my mx518 (its max) 3200 on wow mouse (its max) and I switch to min dpi when shooting at long range (but only for single player games, don't play shooter games online on my pc)

3. What's your maximum budget? negligible

4. Do you want additional buttons? most definitely

5. What games do you play? all kinds. for what the mouse matters for, mostly MMOs, RPGs, and uh, idk, a variety of FPS

6. Do you mind about prediction? don't even know what that is.

1. What's your grip style?
Id say a hybrid of fingertip and palm, more fingertip though.

2. What's your sensitivity?
I play with medium sensitivity.

3. What's your maximum budget?
100$

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Id like at least 2 buttons on the side

5. What games do you play?
Mostly Dota2 and some FPS

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Id like to have the option to turn on/off since i dont know if i would like it or not.

7. Other relevant information:
Input anything else you want.
must be wired. Drivers are OK, but must be solid.
