Help! Mouse Dilemma

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I noticed this thing about my mouse (razer deathadder), where if you have a palm grip your index finger pushes down at the end of the button causing a slight delay over pressing at the middle of the button, this is because your index finger bends the material and then the material ends up pressing the button underneath the cover. But if you press in the middle of the button it presses directly on the actual button underneath. But when I configure my hand to press directly on the button for a faster click, the grip is loose and i make mistakes or I dont get my aim perfectly. I play FPS shooters and timing is everything, i know I click faster when i click towards the actual button. Does anybody know about any mouse where this is not an issue? or is designed for speedier clicks?

this may help explain what im talking about:

This shouldn't bother you all that much, if I am correct the hz on your screen will probably be around 60 hz or so and will cause more delay than plastic bending over a microswitch.

actually I play with 120hz and it does bother me a lot

I can't see how that 0.001 second will ever help you, because the plastic shell is almost moved immediatly, then I would rather practice on reflexes. In this regard, playing with 500 hz would be a horrible idea and almost impossible. So I guess this just bothers you, because you think that it is making you a worse player, but actually it's all in your head and you need to train more at your game than trying to blame the little things. And a faster internet connection would also be nice to reduce that reaction time, because that would save you more times than the plastic in your Deathadder pressing the micro switch.


If you really have to fix anything, you can put something really tiny right above the microswitch tip or the shell that actually hits the microswitch, I would say something the size of 0.5-1mm in height.

I'm not sure if there really is a difference cause at the edge of the button you need less actuaction force cause of the lever.

I don't think it makes me a worse player, in fact I know I'm a great player with or with out it. I just clearly notice a difference when I click at the end of the mouse versus right over the switch. Just looking to improve anyway I can. Maybe its just that my mouse is 2 years old, but I can notice a clear difference.

Then it's probably the actuation force difference that is bothering you. Because that is the only major difference.
