What have switches to do with a shell?

I see it like this. You can claw grip, finger tip and palm any mouse, be it ergonomic or ambidextrous. That's what I do all the time, based on different games and Win7 I either palm (resting or more relaxed view turn, also using in Win7) , or claw grip (more tense firefights, short and quick view turn) or finger tip (fine aiming, especially with scopes).
The only problem is size, if the size is to large than finger tip and claw will be less comfortable. That's why I never used the MX or G400, it's too big. AM works perfect for all grip styles for me (I have rather small hands), but I'd prefer a smaller ergonomic design, like the EC2, which why I am interested. Ergonomic allows to have a better palm grip than AM, but due to the small size of the EC2 finger tip and claw grip would work just as good as on the AM (I even use finger tip on Deathadder, only smaller size would be better).
If you have really large hands, than the EC1 would feel to you like the EC2 to me, because of my small hands.

Yes, the EC2 evo might be some form of hybrid but the EC1 version surely is not. Most people should be fine with the G400 in terms of shape and shouldn't have a reason to go for the more expensive evo. Not to say I don't like the fact that they put the AMs sensor in the EC, but in will have a hard time in sales I fear. Which is ultimately a good thing for us. For once, we have 2 (3 if you count EC1 and EC2 seperately) "almost perfect" palm-grip mice on the market.
Hopefully bst will bring as a good G1 replacement to compete with the AM
Is the G400 sensor performance really that better? AM has a lower lift off distance, which I consider some sort of additional luxury, but not a must. I might try the G400, but as an allround grip style user (palm, finger tip, claw) I need an allround ergonomic mouse, the G400 for small hands seems to be only good for palm grip. Ahh, dilemma.
