Looking for fingetip/claw fps mouse

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey there, need some advice on a new mouse. I'm somewhere between a fingertip and claw grip - if I were to look at razer's chart thing and other people's talk, I don't bend my fingers enough and my palm isn't over the mouse like a claw grip (about 7 3/4" of hand) but i bend my fingers a little more than a fingertip grip. I'm currently on a cloth pad my girlfriend made to cover one of those generic mousepads retailers hand out, but I'd consider buying a new one, although I am just a casual gamer. Usually play FPSs using low-sensitivity settings with the g500 and mk700, but maybe a tiny mouse would change those settings...

I had been waiting on a g9x for awhile but am thinking it might be a little too small for my style... any suggestions? I've read a bunch of reviews here and elsewhere and these are my current choices:

Zowie EC2 - seems like there's manufacturing issues/poor build quality
Mionix 5000 - sounds great, can't find a lot of reviews outside of amazon
Logitech g9x - sounds great but concerned about smallness
CM Storm Spawn - heard about sensor issues, hear not so good for low sensitivity gamers (thick cable and tracking?), not so keen on the gamer look but don't mind painting

If you could help me choose which porridge is right for me I'd appreciate it. Any thoughts or other suggestions would be appreciated, thanks!

I currently use a White Kinzu and I really like the small shape of it and I use a claw grip, and its small enough for fingertip as well. The only thing is the acceleration which you might not like. I dont really know the other mice other than the EC2, which I also have and in terms of quality it seems pretty solid, better switches and body over Steelseries. The CM Spawn I have heard some mixed reviews. Sorry I couldn't help you out on the other mice though.

I claw grip a DeathAdder, and my hands are not huge. It's phenomenal, and hands down my favorite mouse ever. It also has one of the most highly regarded sensors.
