The white zowie ec2, looks really nice. But it kinda looks long. I'm not sure if its just the way the picture is.

For the Rat series, I heard the sensor gets easily dirty

EDIT: I think I'm a mix of palm/claw now.

That's exactly how I grip my G400, that's kind of strange.

Here are the dimensions for the EC1/2:
EC1: 128 x 43 x 62-70 mm / 5 x 1.7 x 2.44-2.76 in
EC2: 120 x 40 x 58-65 mm / 4.72 x 1.57 x 2.28-2.56 in

The EC2 may be more up your alley than the EC1.

You think my finger setup would be best on a G9x? My brother has one, but it felt weird at first, but I might try it once more for a few hours and see how that goes.

Just been through this myself funnily enough...my "needs" list was slightly more extensive, take a look at my topic, but more importantly have a look at reply 19. DeMS gives quite a lot of information in that post.

Mionix Naos 3200. Why? The shape. If you're right-handed, it's the most comfortable mouse you'll ever use (because of little ledges on the right side to rest your pinky & ring fingers and the light weight). Pretty much any gaming mouse will perform at least decently if you set it up right, so it's often best to pick one that will be ergonomic & comfortable to use instead of one that has a particularly marketable statistic.

I'm using my brothers G9x, it feels pretty smooth. I like how the buttons are very light, and easy to click. A con for me is its weight, since I lift off the mouse pad very often.

Don't get a deathadder then... great mouse, but I hear those are fairly weighty. Unfortunately, that kind of rules out the Naos 3200 too. It's lightweight and would be great for you... but the lift-off distance is a little higher than most mice if that bothers you. (My mouse needs to be lifted about 8mm off the surface, where most mice are only 2-5mm I think.) Then again, I don't life my mouse much since I upped the DPI I play at to 1600, so I don't care about that.

Maybe look at a coolermaster Storm Spawn. It's a very short, moderately wide, lightweight mouse. I suggest that mostly because the g9x (which I've never used) also looks like a short and squat mouse. Anyway, I'd suggest going with the "I want a mouse similar to this but with xx changed" approach if you've gotten fairly comfortable with something already.

Good luck.

Looking at your grip style, I'd say you are totally claw grip, but that may actually come from the mouse in the picture being somewhat smallish/shortish, which may hint at a palm grip. What claw and palm grips have in common, is that the palm is layed on the top/back of the mouse, only claw style mice are shorter which allows the hand to have bent (claw) fingers, while the palm style mice allow you to stretch out the fingers.

If you're uncomfortable with the shape of the Deathadder (I think G400 is similar honestly), than the Zowie EC2 (eVo is the upcoming new version, though no white version yet) may be an option, as it has almost an identical shape, but is more compact in comparison to the Deathadder and may be good for a claw/palm grip style (which I have myself).

If you are into claw grip afterall, than the Zowie AM, or maybe better the Steelseries mice may be a good way to go. For smaller hands I think they aren't even all that bad for a palm grip.

Zowie mice cost $60 though, so if you are ready to throw another 10 bucks at them...
But be warned, the Zowie AM switches suck a bit, too stiff, but not impossible.

As a mid to low senser you are good to go with an optical mouse, too (Zowie, G400, optical Steelseries methinks too), if you're ready to use a fitting surface (cloth pads are best).

Yeah, Coolermaster Storm Spawn is a nice optical mouse, but impossible for palm grip, a pure claw grip mouse, which was way to limitted for me.
