Looking for a new mouse/pad combo, fast. - Page 3

post #21 of 40
for one its black with a logo on it.. not the biggest fan of it, but looks kinda neat I guess. but its rougher than the talent on the surface, so it has more friction when moving. the talent, while its overall a great pad, was much too fast for me.. the complexity fixes this. its 100% much moire suited for those med-high sens cs players like me I think.

I really enjoy my CM Xornet, i'll continue to recommend them to claw grippers.

Would the Xornet work ok for a finger/claw hybrid style grip, it looks like an interesting shape for me with my smallish hands. Also what pad do you use with yours ?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000TD0QU2/ref=cm_cr_notf_fhv_prd
That mouse pad is probably larger than what you want, but they might make one smaller from the same material. It is a thin mouse pad that I really like. I actually have a keyboard resting on top of part of the pad.

I have used the MX518 which was replaced with the g400 I believe, it is a very good mouse but a bit large for a claw grip mouse imo. I have large hands but I have found that I prefer a smaller/lighter mouse for claw/ finger tip grip. I really like the G9x and the CM Spawn/ Xornet mice for there size. I tend to lean more towards the CM mice because of lower cost, lighter weight, no software needed, and a over nice feel.

Xornet is 500/1000/2000 dpi
Spawn is 800/1800/3500 dpi

I just thought I would quote my earlier post to help answer your question. It is suggested to use a lite colored pad with the CM Spawn/ Xornet. These a great claw grip, optical mice.

I cant get the HandStands Super Mouse Pad in the UK unfortunately. I assume a light coloured QCK may work ok ? like - http://steelseries.com/products/games/guild-wars-2/steelseries-qck-guild-wars-2-logo-edition perhaps ?

From the reading I did before buying mine, I heard that the mice had weird issues with dark color pads. So just to avoid any issues I bought a grey pad because it was cheap. So I suggest getting getting any pad you prefer that is light colored and fits your budget.
I thought I was having tracking issues with my G9x so I bought the Xornet and mouse pad. After using the mouse pad I discovered the problem with the g9x was the lack of mouse pad giving me problems. Now I use the Xornet more because I like the feel of the mouse better than the G9x! Hell I could buy 2 maybe 3 Xornets for the price of the G9x!

i'd consider it kind of a hybrid, you can rest your palm on it and use the whole mouse if needed. But the shape makes for quick movement with the fingers, also to note my hands are fairly normal. Not particularly small but not large by any means. Also I don't use a mouse pad but in the past I used an Alsop with it. But that pad can only be put down once since it's one of those sticker types.

Mouse is between the Zowie EC2 EVO and the CM Xornet/Spawn as of now I think. Still uncertain as to what to do about pad, perhaps get something that will work with both of those mouse options to cover my arse ?

I have heard good things about Zowie, But have not owned one. The main turn off for me was the size. Since I already own a MX518 and wanted something smaller, the Zowie was not for me. The Zowie and MX518 are almost exactly the same size.
