Mouse for low sensitivity claw grip?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have a G9X and I love it for general use (the smooth scroll and such), but as I've moved to lower and lower sensitivities when playing FPS, I'm disliking its built-in 5% acceleration more and more. I have a Mionix Propus mousepad (380mm wide) and I use every bit of it, so I guess my cm/360 is pretty high.

My criteria for a mouse are as follows:

- designed for claw grip
- no prediction or acceleration, good for low sensitivity
- side buttons


I'd love it if there was something with the on-the-fly DPI and nifty features like that of the G9X, but I'm not holding my breath. I just want something with a top-notch sensor and side buttons since I use them pretty often in games. Price doesn't really matter all that much, as long as it's not a $100 3-button mouse or something.


Thanks for any suggestions, assuming there is anything that actually meets this criteria.

CM Storm Spawn and Roccat Savu are two mice that are very good for claw grip and have side buttons. Their sensors track perfectly well at 400 and 800 dpi without acceleration or prediction (or so i heard here)

Hmm, I initially liked the look of the Spawn, but this review throws me off:

He mentions that it's only suitable for low sensitivity if you can set it to 1800 dpi and lower the in-game value, but I've found that in games like CS: GO such a dpi is too high even with the in-game setting at minimum.


The Savu looks pretty neat with that easy shift feature, but I'm wondering if that's worth the extra $20-30 over the Zowie models.

Its outdated, with newer firmwares the spawn is able to go 4m/s+ on 800dpi.

Ah, thanks a lot, then I'll definitely go with the Spawn. Thanks for the help all.
