Thread Starter 
So I have had my current mouse for only about a year now and as much as I like it, I think its time for a change, its just not doing what I want it too. What I currently have is a Razer mamba, the original one. I would love to get the new mamba because the new 4g sensor is meant to be amazing but mamba is quite a heavy mouse, probably because of the battery in it. I play FPS games but usually spend most of my time playing COD online (don't rag on me its not what the poll is about). I have been reading some of the threads on here and trying to learn a little and I think I would like something thats lighter, the mamba is probably too heavy for me and the cause of my problems, I dont have a preference for wired or wireless, as the mamba has both and I use both but I would probably use wired more often as I usually forget to charge it up when I am done. I love build quality of the Razer and the nice matte feel to it and would like something similar. I also like the customizable performance to tweak the DPI of mouse as I tend to change it alot, and having it being 1000Hz ultra fast polling helps aswell. I have probably just described this mouse and no other but I am still pretty new to the gaming periphals and don't know a hell of a lot about it. I also have smaller hands and even the Mamba can be too big sometimes so I don't want a huge mouse. Any help or ideas is appreciated.

If I get enough reccomendations I will add a poll for everyone to vote on. One of the mice I would like to ask what you guys think of is the new 2012 Laichless with also the new 4g sensor.

Does it have to be 1000Hz ultra fast polling or will normal 1000Hz polling do fine?

My top choices would be a Xai or a G400, of course along with a quality mouse pad.

Is there actually a real world difference between so called "ultra fast" and "normal" 1000Hz polling? :O Something new here.

TS, do you use palm or claw grip? Also I don't think any of the new Razer 4G sensors make any difference. redface.gif I always recommend the Mionix Naos 5000 to palm grippers. Most comfortable mouse I have ever used. Also I have small hands and do not find it too big (I am a girl). I have used the Lachesis before and find it supremely uncomfortable. LOL. Now there's a big mouse there.

Lol, no difference at all.

My Xai has 1000Hz but I regularly run it at 600Hz because 1000Hz is too stiff for me.

@ OP

You don't need to have the battery inside the Mamba for it to work wired.

I suggest you try it wired and without a battery, as it adds a big percentage of weight to the mouse.

If you have a good mousepad and you don't mind about the Z-axis, the Mamba offers really good tracking, and a monstruous perfect tracking speed.

I have a Razer destructor mouse pad which seems pretty good for me, its a hard and pretty fast and was a huge step up from my old mouse pad which was an old school foam one lol. I mentioned the 4g sensors because I have heard good things about them. If you think there is a better mouse out there for me that doesnt meet the requirements I listed but will work for me I would be willing to try it. I don't know what grip I use but it seems you use the grip that matches the mouse not the other way around. I just grip the mouse in the way that makes it easiest for me, if I had a different mouse, I would use a different grip.

If you liked the mamba then the deathadder is its superior cousin. That could be a good choice.

I love my sensei. No thills, just kills. It's also 30g lighter and I think it's actually cheaper, looking at my current sources. The only probem I have had is it soemtimes freeze on start-up, but right clicking unfreezes it. I found a fix a while back, but I really cba to fix it. It's not a missive problem.

If it has to be Razer then, personally, this:

-Edit-
The sensei is awesome for customising DPI.

If you want a mouse without acceleration, jitter, or other serious problems, any steelseries mouse is out of the question.

The deathadder is a very good mouse and lighter than the mamba that you said you prefered. I would highly recommend this then, as it is one of the very few mice with a perfect sensor.
