[Competitive FPS gaming] Transitioning from fingertip to palm/claw..

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I've been using fingertip grip for 6 years.. 26cm/360 and I play COD competitive

I believe I learnt how to use this grip because my palms sweat when using palmgrip. Seems to be ok on rubbery surfaces like DA though.

I've been thinking of transitioning to palm grip\claw, was wondering if anyone has done this transition and how long did it take to get on the same level you were at before..

I can win games with palm grip but nowhere near as consistent as fingertip.. find my hand sweats more than usual also..

Main reason being most mice with flawless sensors seem to be palm oriented (DA, G400,) and my forward and back range of motion is nerfed when using these bigger/longer mice with fingertip grip. The Abyssus is ok for fingertip, I find the center of balance to be too forward, resulting in the front of the mouse dragging when I lift.

I have slightly bigger than medium hands. I can barely grip a properly inflated basketball

I wish I had the skills to frankenmouse a DA sensor inside a WMO, I'd be set....

I would try the Zowie AM/GS had the shape of the sides been \_/ instead of /_\ which would make my fingers slip when lifting the mouse.

I recently gutted an Abyssus to fix my DA3.5, I might go out and buy another abyssus and g400

Hm, staying with Fingertip and checking out Spawn comes to mind.

Can close topic, picked up a non prediction G400 and I can fingertip grip it perfectly. The mouse is perfect for my needs, I am VERY impressed with the sensor and quite like the shape.
