I feel your frustration on deciding on mice, been working on buying a new mouse for nearly two weeks.

Im probably going to take advantage of the Razer Store generous returns policy and buy both a Taipan and a Deathadder 2013. Mainly due to wanting to try various grip styles beyond what i usually use as im not sure what I use at the moment is the best for my hand/arm health. Or saying that maybe I should buy an Ouroboros for flexibility ..

well realistically i'd like a Mamba, maybe if they drop under 100 whenever i actually have the money to buy a new mouse (need to sell some stuff first) but the taipan and deathadder are my second choices. Actually my first choice would be a razer copperhead, as that was my favorite mouse of all time, unfortunately they don't make it anymore... (went through 3 of them...)

100% agree and I also went through 3 of them. The Taipan is about as close as it gets but still doesn't compare to the Copperheads rubber side grip rails.

So after further looking around on forums I wonder How durable are the mouse feet on the Taipan ? been hearing hints about them being very thin and I don't want to have a mouse where Im needing to change the feet after 6 months. Will be using on smooth cloth pad and not a hard pad..
post #766 of 840
Wouldn't say that they're thinner than any other feet. They're not soft like Zowie feet either. However, they're very small, increasing friction especially on cloth greatly.

How greatly would be greatly ? Was planning on using a Goliathus Speed. id like a smooth but not slick glide with a touch of friction so the mouse doesn't feel like its on ice skates.

Also judging from what I can see the other Razer mouse I was looking at, the DA2013 may share the same situation on cloth pads as its feet are small to. So I may be In trouble here as I don't want to use a hard pad this time around.

As in it will stop almost immediately on a QcK when you give it a push.

Oh, it is smooth, don't get me wrong! On a Speed it's a bit faster but not slick, I'd say.

The Taipan's feet are definitely thicker than say DA's, but a hard pad would still wipe it out in at most half a year or so.

I'd like to also add something about the razer taipan. I got it about 2 months ago, so far its been pretty good. Ever since i went from my CRT to my LCD for gaming I did find the there was some lag to some degree. Anyway thinking it was the monitor, a few days ago i decided to try my good old copperhead. I was so surprised by the responsiveness compared to the razer taipan. People have claimed for some reason that after a supposed update last year, all the lag seems to be gone. I haven't owned the mouse since then so I can't comment.

But i can definitely guarantee that there is a tiny bit of mouse lag/smoothing on the Taipan, it's not major but its enough to notice and potentially reduce performance within game. I've noticed I did really well with my copperhead as a gunner in a chopper than using the taipan, down to its outright faster responsiveness. However the Taipan wins on the fact it has a much higher DPI. It's accuracy is more superior. This mouse would be perfect if it didn't have this mouse lag.

Any one know of any Razer reps we could talk to about this issue?
