What is the best claw mouse out of these 4 for comfortability and tracking?

CM Storm Spawn - Perfect Tracking
Roccat Savu - Not in thread
Razer Abyssus - Perfect Tracking
Zowie AM - Yet to be proven perfect

CM Storm Xornet - Not in thread - ELIMINATED FOR NOT BEING TO FULLY TURN OFF ANGLE SNAPPING
Zowie EC1/EC2 EvO - Not in thread - ELIMINATED FOR PREDICTION

I've narrowed my mice down to these 4 (edited for eliminations). What would you guys recommend for being the most comfortable? Also - is the Spawn or Xornet Sensor better?

I'm leaning towards the Spawn to be honest. What is the best sensitivity/polling rate for it?

PS: I use a QcK Heavy.

I play claw myself with the Wheel Mouse Optical 1.1 and the Zowie AM is pretty much identical in shape and its really nice to hold on
The ec1 should also have abort the same shape and the evo version use the same sensor as the AM and they are the same sensor in the CM Storm spawn so they are flawless biggrin.gif

If I have to believe the people and my personal opinions in terms of tracking:

Abyssus (in ideal circumstances aka no jittering) > Savu > Spawn > Zowie Mice > Xornet.

The differences are rather small though. As far as comfort goes, for me personally I prefer the Zowies. Though with a Deathadder lens in the AM, you could argue it's almost as good as a Abyssus (but less chance of jittering).

I wish people would understand that mice in general are really subjective.

 

Perfection is only in the eye of the beholder.

CM Storm Spawn - Perfect Tracking
CM Storm Xornet - Not in thread (Is Xornet or Spawn sensor better?)
Roccat Savu - Not in thread
Razer Abyssus - Perfect Tracking
Zowie AM - Yet to be proven perfect
Zowie EC1/EC2 EvO - Not in thread
The Xornet has angle snapping

the Savu, Zowie AM and Zowie EC Evo all track without angle snapping, significant jitter or acceleration.
The Zowie mice also have lower lift off distances, due to their custom lenses.

I've heard of some jitter issues with the abyssus, as well as the storm spawn.

The Zowie mice seem the best to me, but comfort isn't something you can easily predict. If you want a high angle on the back of the mouse, then the Savu would be good; if you want a shallower angle on the back of the mouse, then the Zowie mice would be good. I'm not sure the storm spawn would be large enough for claw grip.

Here's are some guides on mouse sensors

Xornet utilizes the latest high performance optical engine ensuring extreme stability and reliability. Based on an anti-drift architecture, it delivers stable and precise tracking in mouse lift and drop scenarios. Angle snapping can be enabled or disabled for exact swift crosshair movements enabling amazing skill-shots and incredible aiming accuracy.

Is this inaccurate?

Yes, you cant enable angle snapping on the Xornet.  smile.gif

 

The sensor never had a "angle snapping" alogrithm. I would personally avoid it though. It's quite weak

Also just figered out that the ECs have prediction. So I guess the Zowie AM is the best out of those 3.

I'm down to:
Storm Spawn
Abyssus
Zowie AM
Roccat Savu

What is your opinion on the Spawn then?

Better, though could use some adjustments.

 

Honestly, just pick the mouse you think fits you best.
