Can't find a good fingertip grip mouse. Help!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone as the title says I'm having trouble finding a fingertip grip style mouse that works for me. The reason I'm looking for a new mouse is because the rubber material of the scroll wheel on my Microsoft Sidewinder X5 has all but completely shred off. Leaving just the plastic structure of the scroll wheel left in it's place.

So I went looking for a suitable mouse on new egg and I found the Cooler Master Storm Spawn. So I purchased it and I just received it yesterday it is a great mouse for claw grip but it's not really working for my fingertip grip style.

So my question to OCN is what is a mouse that is very good for the use of fingertip grip. I have found some saying the Steelseries Xai (which I can't find anywhere) and some saying the G9x with precession grip.

Now since I can't find the Steelseries Xai on the internet anywhere and I already knew that the Steelseries Sensei having the same exact shape. So I looked it up asking Google if it was good for fingertip grip and across the board everyone said no. So I don't know what to do and I'm about to buy another Sidewinder X5 that I will just have to replace in another year after the same thing happens to the scroll wheel. Please help and thank you for your time.

On another note, as I wrote the first part today I found that I can use a mouse in the sort of shape of the M-UK DEL3 pretty well with my grip. I tried it in Cs 1.6 and actually kept a positive K/D even though it's a ball mouse. So I suppose something of that shape would be ok. I also used another stock HP mouse of about the same size a few weeks ago over Christmas at my brother in laws house and I could also use it just as well.

The G500 is a good fingertip grip style mouse, and I've used it for a while now. It's a precision laser gaming mouse by logitech that comes with weights, etc. It's also over a year old so the price has come down alot.

Really? I wouldn't have thought of that mouse as a fingertip grip capable mouse. Hmm, maybe I will look into it thanks.

G500 is mostly a palm style mouse. My personal favorite fingertip mouse right now is the abyssus, g9x is also a good fingertip mouse.

Ya, I thought the same thing I think I'm just going to go to some stores and see if I can test some out because I can use finger tip grip with some mice that weren't made for it specifically.
