I know that this is not 4-way-wheel but if you finally decide to buy 2 - way- wheel think on sensei/zowie am. Im looking also for a good mouse since 1year and I know your palm grip problem. I had deathadder&g400 but they are too big to fingertip them for me.
If you want see here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1207321/new-mouse

Kana seems to be not good on +800dpi
Zowie Am has noticeable jittering at maximan dpi

Edit: look at logitech g9x but I am not sure about it. Some of them have sensor issues and are probably heavy.

I'm looking into mice as well, the logitech G9 or G9x might fit the bill for you. Its rubberized with removable grips, shaped for claw style, wired, and 4 way scroll wheel. It also has a dedicated DPI switch and an adjustable weight system, both of which seem to be becoming a standard. It has two thumb buttons and the braided cable.

Also the G700 is wireless, I wouldn't recommend it, or any wireless mouse for that matter. Razer's wireless mice are interesting in that you have to option to go wired, so wireless is really more for convenience/portability, not performance. The G700 isn't like that, as far as I know.

Edit: I believe the G9x has the same sensor as most Razer mice, the cyborg R.A.T. series, and seemingly every other laser mouse out there...if the sensor is a deal breaker, you might want to reconsider, but its hard to find something different these days.

Nope G9x has Avago 9500 in it as does the Xai, G500 whereas the Razer 3.5G and 4G and cyborg R.A.T. mice use the Philips Twin-Eye sensors. These 2 sensors are actually more different than the 9500 and any ordinary optical one for example, even though both being "laser" sensors.

Right, I'll pick up a G9x locally, albeit more expensively. It has a 4 way scroll wheel, at least two side buttons, and nice rubberised grips which are low for the thumb and interchangeable grips for the pinky. If I get any problems with it I can return it locally!


Edit: Thanks for everyone for the information and in helping me make my decision.

The plastic part though frown.gif.
Thanks smile.gif.

I do not think that the plastic really hurts my grip on the mouse. The scroll wheel does tilt left and right and you with the program Microsoft provides you can program a lot of different functions to them.
