Deathadder is one of my favorite mice, I used it extensively for a number of years when I was a palm gripper, it has an excellent sensor.
However, I agree with ZareliMan that it is a poor choice for fingertip gripping. I switched to fingertip gripping about a year back and unfortunately had to switch mice because the Deathadder caused me to get cramps in my wrist and top of the hand with that grip. I use a Xornet currently, the Xornet/Spawn shape is very ergonomic for right handed fingertip gripping.

Actually, I used to have a Deathadder, but its left button stopped working, so I gave it to my girlfriend. (yeah, what a boyfriend I am)

It was pretty good, but it was my first 'high end' mice though.

Both of them seem to work pretty fine, but again, all of them seem to work in my hand.

I was really thinking about getting a Razer Set, because it's good and everything would match haha lol

But maybe I'll have to get a Sensei, since it's near impossible to find a Deathadder 2013.

I already bought my Razer Tiamat and Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2013 biggrin.gif

you can't go wrong with the Deathadder 2013. i got mines yesterday and it is...wait for it...LEGENDARY! lol.
i've owned/used my 3500dpi deathadder since 2010 or was it 2011? it served me well until the double click issue. i upgraded to 2013 one so i don't have to deal with the double clicking and that the 2013 one has side grips! thumb.gif

Desperately trying to find a store that sells it in Canada, since I'm just going to be here for another week.

Where did you buy yours?

Sorry for double posting, but...I only got 5 more days and I can't find the Deathadder 2013, so...time to start looking for option B.

Do I get Steelseries Sensei? Or another DA version?

Or do I even try another option? I was considering Taipan or Mamba, I've heard Mamba has some sensor issues and the Taipan has some kind of lag.

Maybe Ouroboros?

Heeeeeeeeelp! (Obs: I wanna play mostly FPS games, and some MOBA games)

Sensei has 3-5% acceleration, Deathadder has a nice sensor but some people report spin issues. Your other option can be a Zowie

How is this Zowie?

Laser or optical? (even though I can't tell what are the differences)

The acceleration in the Sensei is barely noticable, infact SteelSeries have even said them selves that the minor hardware acceleration is on purpose. This isn't really a bad thing seeing as windows acceleration is what you need to worry about, not hardware acceleration, hardware acceleration is controllable and preferred by some gamers.

The Deathadders sensor is the best but for alot of people the shape is uncomfortable compared to other mice and is prone to making peoples hand sweat.

I think both mice are great, I personally prefer the feel of the sensei in-game and the shape of the mouse however I prefer the fact that the deathadder uses a flawless sensor so in the end it comes down to whats more important to you.

I only played with older ADNS 9500 mice like the G500 and NAOS 5000, but the accel there was noticable quite clearly, at least for me. The worst thing was the inconsistency, sometimes it was positive accel, other times negative. If they fixed that and reduced the accel on the newer batch then everyone with mid-high sens should be fine using them.
