Cooler Master Storm Spawn?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So for quite some time now, I've been using a simple mouse that came with my parents Gateway computer. However, since I now play games such as League of Legends and BF3 I would like a proper gaming mouse. I use a fingertip grip which makes things a little more difficult since most mice seem to be made for palm grip. My hand is a little over 6 inches long and 3 inches wide. My current mouse on the other hand is only 3.75 inches long and 1.75 inches wide which leaves my pinkie completely off the mouse and my ring finger barely hanging on. I was hoping that somebody here had experience with this mouse or better yet, currently has it.

The main thing I want to know is it's length and width in inches so I know what the difference is. I also want to know if there are any other mice for claw/fingertip grip that are better for the same price. I really like the Spawn because it sticks with my computers red and black theme as well, so if you recommend others I would like them to be black or red and black. Keep the recommendations under $35 as well please.

1. Grip Style: Fingertip
2. Sensitivity: In the middle of slow and fast on Windows
3. Max Budget: $40
4. Additional Buttons: Yes, at least side buttons needed.
5. Games: LoL, BF3, HL2, Minecraft, Metro 2033, Assassin's Creed

Sorry for the bump, but I was hoping to ask for this for Christmas so I could use feedback ASAP.

Your hands sounds small and is like a kid's hands... Spawn is a very wide mouse and could be too wide for you to grip comfortably.

Let me see.
Your hands: 15cm long, 7.5cm wide
Your mouse: 9.5cm long, 4.5cm wide
Spawn: 10.7cm long, 7.5cm wide

(sorry, I can only work with metric)

My hand is 11cm wide and 19cm long and I can just fingertip a mouse that is about that wide (G500, 7.5cm in width). I doubt with your hand size, you can fingertip Spawn with any comfort or at all (of course you might adopt to it in the end)...

You will probably be better off with a narrow mouse like Tt esports Saphira (6.3cm), Roccat Pyra (6cm), Taipan (6.3cm)... Still wider than your current mouse. Narrow mice with side buttons are not easy to come by.

The Roccat Kova series are very long and not very wide at all. The blue optic sensor isn't ideal, but it works if you can deal with prediction. I believe the first rendition of the Kova actually uses a 3080 or a 3090, so I'd probably take that over the Kova+ if you're going to go for the Kova series.

Actually, the Spawn sounds perfect at that size. Like I said, my current mouse is much too narrow for me so I am looking for a wider mouse. 7.5cm is equal to about 3 inches. I used an online ruler to see how my hand would fit over a 3 inch span and it looked like a perfect size for me. I think you mistook the size of my hand as I measured the width of my hand with fingers together. With my fingers stretched out my hand spans 17 and a quarter centimeters.

I spawn is actually a really nice fingertip mouse. I misread and somehow got that you wanted a longer mouse, but if you're looking for something shorter that fingertips well then Spawn's a good choice.

I did not mistake the size of your hand. When I quoted the size of my hands, I measured the width of my hand with fingers together too. When stretched, my hand spans 23cm.

I don't think a mouse would feel comfortable if you have to stretch your fingers to grip it, instead of having a natural resting position. I know you need a wider mouse, but I am suggesting mice that are wide enough for your hand size but not too wide.

Anyway, get whatever mouse you like and then try, then see if you will agree with me or not as everyone has different preference.

I might be biased but the Xornet is a pretty nice budget mouse. It's 7.5cm wide as well but the grip is very nice and the quality is great at $25 on newegg.ca right now...

I have the feeling that the "online ruler" used by OP may not have been calibrated and he got wrong measurements of his hand sizes. This or he/she is a kid/lady.
