confused about THE best mice for big hand users.

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Now after reading so many posts here, i was thinking about what mice is good to go.
i came to the following conclusion but im not sure if this is correct.

i filtered out the following mice sensor/built quality wise:
g400
razer deathadder 3g,3.5g (4g?!)
zowie am
zowie ec evo1/2

after that i thought about shape and everything else, which made me kick out the g400.

problem is i am still confused which mice to get finally.
i know zowie has lower LOD but the custom lens has some issues and takes away like 24% of the max m/s.
i know the deathadder 4g has the synapse ****.

i would be so happy if you would recommend me a mother and explain as to why.

the biggest problem in here for new users (atleast for me) is that there is nothing like the ESR Mouse Score for example.
Even in the deathadder thread there is no shortcut information WHICH deathadder model is the best, and what the pros and cons of every version are.
same goes for the zowies. for a newb user it is very hard to compare those mice to each other, and buy the right one.
not everyone wants to dig through 100's of threads and 1000's of posts.

i did, and im still confused.

PLEASE HELP!
i have big hands and use a palm/fingertip grip, low-mid sense. i have a SS xai right now, and love the shape, but hate the sensor,gliding and the weight is a bit too high.


best regards.

I got a fairly big hand and the G400 fits perfectly. It's really nice in the hand.

i dont like the shape of the g400, and it has the same high weight as the xai. furthermore many users are claiming the cable to be **** and low quality.

as i said the decision should be between the rest of the mentioned mice.
would be nice if someone could explain WHY the deatheradder 3g or 3.5g or 4g is better/worse than the other ones.
like : the best deathadder to get is XXX because .....pros and cons of all of them.
same for the zowies. i know they use the same sensor. but also switches and shape matters.

zowie am is very narrow
for big hands better take EC1, ec2 is smaller

I wear 4XL gloves and love the Logitech MX Revolution/Performance MX mouse. It just fits my large hand well. It doesn't feel like it has no weight like other mice, and I pretty much move it around with my finger tips with ease. It also has a nice set of software and buttons that can be programmed to do what I want.

If you can find them, I'd get the MX Revolution over the Performance MX. Even though it is an older mouse, I like the recharging cradle/stand. They did away with that when the MX Revolution was redone and became the Performance MX.

If you like the XAi then you should take a look at the new Zowie FK.

Regarding ESR Mousescore: there are too many variables to conclude which is the best mouse, or even the best Deathadder, because while some models succeed in certain aspect they are worse in others. It's all down to personal preference. That being said I know from first hand experience that DA 3G and 3.5G are fine, didn'T try the 2013 yet as I'm perfectly happy with the Savu.

I have short stubby hands and my MX700 really makes my hand look the part. The wear marks from my fingers are an inch from the end of the buttons. It's a big mouse but considering Logitech has been using this exact same body on their mice for like 10 years - it's gotta say something.
APU what?

Get a rat they are bigger than mice biggrin.gif

found this -

Very well! Here's my suggestion then: Logitech G9x. I bought this a few years back to play games at the time. It has adjustable modes as well as weight to get that perfect "feel" so to speak. I was not able to use the larger mode because it was simply much too big for me. The smaller one did work, though. I can usually use most of the mice I buy from Logitech, but the larger mode for the G9x was just too much. I would watch the video on that page to get an idea of how large it is in real time, then compare it to your hands. smile.gif

I'm not so sure if Xai would be the optimal mouse for palm grip. It's ambidextrous and and lower than any other mice you have mentioned. I have only used it briefly but I found it to be clearly less fitting for my palm than say, Deathadder. AM would be better if you don't palm so much. But if you are sure you are palming the mouse then the DA/EC1 you suggested would most likely be an upgrade for you, while also fitting greatly for occasional fingertipping. G400 is the most different from Xai so maybe you should indeed stay away from that one.

All the mice on your list should have good enough sensors. As for DA, 3G was pretty much flawless (though pretty big LOD), I've heard 3.5G might have some jitter issues on cloth pads (might be fixed with firmware) and still high LOD, 2013 should have low LOD and otherwise great sensor but some people seem to be suffering some spinning issues which might be pretty annoying
