Need a new FPS mouse, Suggestions?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I play a lot of FPS games, and I have tried quite a few mice but I have not found the perfect one for me.

I currently own a Logitech G9X, I really like this mouse but there are some limitations with the macros it can do.

I have also tried the Cybrog R.A.T. 7, it was a really nice mouse but it would randomly stop tracking and that was annoying. I tried the Razer Ouroboros but did not like that it was ambidextrous and did not fit the right hand as well.

I am currently considering the Thermaltake Level 10M, the Cybrog MMO 7, the Razer Mamba, and the Corsair Vengeance M60. I would like to know if anyone have tried these and what your thoughts are, I basically want something that can do macros, tracks well, right-hand comfortable, and preferably either heavy or has weight adjustments like the G9X or the RAT 7.

Thanks in advance.

Death adder. Feels great in the hand, got 2 buttons for knifing / pitch up pitch down in flight and has a nice blue glow.. good DPI settings as well! It's not exactly a heavy mouse though...

Naga's are heavier, and have plenty of keys on it for you to add macros, they're smaller and may fit funny if you have big hands.

I just bought the mamba which is essentially a heavier, wireless, and higher dpi version of the death adder. but the macro software would not f#$*ing recognize it....

Hmm I'm personally not a fan of wireless mice for FPS - I feel that there almost a v'sync like delay in response time. I've also never used the mamba =\ I'm unable to give you any advice on that one..sorry man!
