As an owner of both the AM and the WMO, I can say that the shapes are not very similar. The AM is quite a bit smaller and the grip feels worse. The sides of the AM slant outwards, making it hard to pick up and just maneuver in general. If I were you, I'd wait for the FK.

Hello!

1. What's your grip style?
Never thought about this previously. I'd say a version of fingertip, even when just browsing the net. I tend to rest my wrist down on the mousemat and grip the mouse from the sides with the tips of my thumb and fingers.

2. What's your sensitivity?
Currently using a 1000dpi (as far as I'm aware) Microsoft Comfort 4500 on default settings. Admittedly it's a tad sluggish and the scroll wheel is unwieldy, but I do like it for general use. I'd probably end up raising the sensitivity a bit for gaming.

3. What's your maximum budget?
Depends on what's available. £30 sounds nice, maybe up to £50-£60 if it's really worth spending that much.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes, although due to the way I grip the mouse (or general incompetence smile.gif) I have difficulty using side buttons. This makes button layouts such as that of the Logitech G300 look more appealing, although I perhaps wouldn't have need for so many buttons. I don't mind side buttons being present if they don't get in the way, but I probably won't use them.

5. What games do you play?
Nothing at the moment as I'm still getting components together, but I'd like to get into Dota 2 and wouldn't mind giving Hawken and Planetside 2 a try. Other than that I could be playing virtually anything that's decent and takes my fancy. RPG, FPS, RTS, whatever.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
No idea, not sure if I've ever experienced it. Does it have a significant effect? Sounds like something that might be annoying.

7. Other relevant information:
Looking for a decent sized mouse, have large-ish hands and long fingers. I have little experience with other mice, but my Microsoft 4500 feels comfortable.
Wired if possible.
Not too keen on the idea of a slippery gloss finish, not bothered about cosmetics otherwise.
I'd much prefer general all round comfortable use and reliability over anything too fancy.

I was thinking of a Logitech G300, but I've heard mixed reports. Is it worth considering?

Thanks.

After some suggestions in this thread I bought a kana. Good mouse doesn't fit my hand. I get a cramp across my knuckles and I tend to click the buttons to far towards the middle of the mouse, not near the end. I also feel it doesn't give the bridge below my knuckles anywhere to rest or grip.
Any suggestions?

Well I finally settled on a 2013 DA and it's kind of what I was scared of in that I really feel like there is no where to put my ring finger and pinky. They are just kinda hanging there. This is after having used an Ikari for 3+ years. Oh well, this is the third mouse I've bought and I'm not returning this one. I'll just get used to it. Aside from that though, everything else feels really nice.

You described your hand being too big for the Kana. Look for a bigger mouse. Like the G400 might work for you then.

KANA
Weight: 72 grams
Height: 37 mm (1.5 in)
Width: 64 mm (2.5 in)
Length: 124 mm (4.9 in)

G400
Weight: 137g
Height: 43mm (1.69 inch)
Width: 73mm (2.87 inch)
Length: 131mm (5.16 inch)

DeathAdder 2013
Weight: 105g
Height: 44mm (1.73 inch)
Width: 70mm (2.76 inch)
Length: 27mm (5.00 inch)

Mionix NAOS 8200 has a shell that accommodates the entire hand laying on the mouse. It might just be you need a few weeks of re-adjusting to a new grip on the DA and you may not even notice soon.

Yeah that is one of the mice I was looking at due to it's form factor. I think I may have chose a bit poorly for my personal tastes. My ring finger and pinky are already feeling fatigued about an hour into use on the DA. Oh well, aside from the form factor everything else feels quite nice. I like the texture quality of the mouse itself and the buttons all feel nice and clicky. The mouse wheel itself when you roll it up and down is much less clicky that I prefer, but it will do. I have noticed one minor thing and it may just be my cloth pad. From time to time it seems the sensor just quits responding to very tiny movements. A quick jerk and it snaps back to attention. Could this be a biproduct of a dirty cloth pad? Or is there something more serious at work. I haven't updated anything either, this is straight from the box.

Thanks dude, yeah i suspect the width is an issue - I wouldn't say I have large hands, my fingers aren't long, but I do have a wide hand I suppose. So now i'm looking at the G400, G9x and the Roccat Savu. 2 of those are quite cheap, so might be just a case of accepting the loss.

Not the Savu it's going to be small I bet. G400 smile.gif

AFAIK, Logitech G400 weighs about 105g without cable.
