A question for fingertip grippers - Page 2

Not the same mouse, but maybe it'll help.

Well, there are a few things that contribute. Yes, it does look like my hand is rolling off to the right in that picture, because, ignoring the mouse completely, it's more comfortable for me to hold my hand that way. The rest of it, the way the mouse is positioned with respect to my hand, is trying to get the best accuracy. Maybe it would be better to come at it from the other angle and change my pivot point and grip style, but right now I'm not too worried about that, because I think I've found a solution:

Basically, I found some sticky tack and putty epoxy, found the most accurate finger position, and added 2 bumps of the sticky tack to cue my thumb and pinky position(I had one for my thumb, with the edge of a button, but was able to play around and find a better one with the sticky tack.) Then I made permanent ones with the putty epoxy, which is curing now.

I'm a fingertip style and my MX series Logitech seems to be designed for this grip style. My fingers always land in the exact same place as does the mouses' orientation in my hand. Maybe try one of these out.
APU what?

I use the spawn as well, and my hand just falls into place. My thumb is right below the closest thumb button, and my first 3 fingers lay across the mouse. My pinky grips the side with the tip. I use a more relaxed fingertip grip, but I rest the heel of my hand against my mousepad, and it doesn't move. I move the mouse around with my fingers, and never lift my palm.

Dynamically adjusting is just a skill after using a mouse a very long time. This is the first time I've heard this complaint. More power to you if it works. Kind of like how flash measures where his keyboard is so it feels the same as in practice.

I think that's less a matter of adjusting, and more a matter of feeling the spots you've worn down the texture of the mouse.

Nah, I literally just use whatever grip and I'm certainly known for my aiming ability. I even switch between many shapes frequently even though I shouldn't.

If you don't have my problem, great. If you're going tell me I've mis-identified what's causing the problem I have, even better. But if you're going to tell me my mouse cursor will behave the same if the mouse is rotated say 10° with respect to my hand, kindly refrain from posting.
Looks like you're not too fond of fingertip gripping. The main idea is to have a very fine grain control over your mouse. If you want the mouse to say the exact position try something like claw. With fingertip the mouse doesn't need to be in the exact same position. However, WHICH position it's in that's best for the current aiming task at hand. That's for you to decide and learn. For example, when clicking a minimap the mouse might be differently placed than for example clicking the top right corner of the screen. Btw I've been using fingertip grip for years with competitive Counter-Strike. If that doesn't require precision then I don't know what does.

My WMO from like 7 years ago doesn't have worn spots so no. You need to just use what's comfortable instead of trying to force it. Try a different mouse if you have to.
