Best Tracking Claw Mouse?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi OCN,

I've been using the Naga Hex and recently I've begun to get frustrated with the glossy grip. It is terrible when your hands are sweaty. I do however like the ring finger rest that the Naga has. I feel that it increases my comfort level. I've recently begun searching for a new mouse with a metal/rubber grip. I've mainly been looking at Steelseries and Razer Mice, but I am welcome to other suggestions. Here is what I've got so far (keep in mind I've got small hands):

Razer:
Deathadder 2013 - More suited for Palm Grip unless you have big hands?
Naga 2013 - with Claw Grip ring finger rest.
Imperator

Steelseries:
Kinzu
Kana
Sensei
Ikari

Which of these mice has the best tracking and comfort for someone with small hands who uses the claw grip?

Recon's shape seems universal for all types of grips, but is optimal for none. You may or may not have luck with it (different people need different shape anyway).

Krait seems a bit too narrow and too low for clawing, but I can be wrong as I have not held one myself. It still depends on its shape.

Other mice that work for claw grip with side buttons: CM Storm Spawn, Roccat Savu, Steelseries Kana (if you use 800DPI or lower - but check its grip's material, i'm not sure), Tt eSports Saphira...

I've narroed it down to ROCCAT Savu, CM Storm Spawn, and Abyssus.

I like the CM Storm Spawn's ring finger. Does the Savu have one? It doesn't seem very big if there is one.

What would you go with out of these 3 mice on a Qck Heavy along with small hands?

All 3 have a similar sensor that should work well on QcK, but it has been reported that Abyssus malfunctions on QcK (I can't verify this).

Savu does not has a ring finger rest like Spawn, but there is a brief space to the right of the right button that you can rest (but not grip with) the ring finger on.
