What kind of a grip do I have?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to get a new mouse but I can't figure out my grip style. My top half of the fingers is touching the mouse and my palm touches the back of the mouse. The fingers are a nice small arch (not as extreme as the claw grip ones). Any good mouse suggestions?

You're probably using the palm-fingertip-mix that 80% of people are using. There are only a few people actually only using one "type" of mouse grip. My advice to you would be to try out the different kinds of mice in real life and get a feel of them. I personally like my Corsair M90. I've loved my Razer Imperator and Lachesis too, but I've been unlucky with the durability of Razer mice, even though I've loved them while they've been working.

This here, I'm with the palm/fingertip master race too biggrin.gif Usually palm the mouse but sometimes switch the grip

I'd guess mice shaped after the old IME3.0 (Razer Deathadder, Zowie EC1/EC2) would suit you pretty well if you have average sized hands. Then there is Logitech G400 (and other similar shaped mice), but I don't think it's quite as comfortable when you are halfway-fingertipping.
