Thread Starter 
I read a article somewhere where someone was saying that Ambidextrous mice makes it easier for him to handle the recoil in FPS games then a Ergonomic mouse.

What do you guys prefer and why?

I noticed that I do prefer ergonomic mice in cs go.
thats a funny fact because I was unable to use them in cs 1.6.
all the mice I hated while playing cs 1.6, I know prefer in cs go.
for example the intelli 1.1 which was by far my favorite mouse in cs 1.6 is now my worst enemy in cs go biggrin.gif
same for zowie AM, wmo etc.
I guess its because my aim technique totally changed because of the new game and I am propably able to control the "bigger ergonomic" mice easier connected to cs go.
so I am a kind of switcher I guess biggrin.gif

I use ergonomic for desktop usage and for most singleplayer games (ones that don't require to move my mouse a lot), when I feel like playing shooters I switch to an ambidextrous mouse. But if I had to choose one I'd choose ambidextrous.

Really depends. I feel that ambi gives me more control and performance. But if I play a long time my hands would fatigue faster than with an ergonomic mouse.

ergonomic feels good and to me is just good all around, ambidextrous mice are for those who like to **** with their right hand...tongue.gif

I don't even get why ambidextrous mice exist in the first place. Even if you only occasionally rest your hand on the mouse wouldn't you still want it to fit your hand as well as possible? I don't get that thing about ambidextrous mice being more controllable, surely you can fine-tune ergonomic mice just as well if they are well designed?

The few ambidextrous mice I've used tended to cause me fatigue very easily compared to ergonomic

E: Of course, if the user is strictly claw/fingertip gripper, then I get the point. Still, would it cost so much to make slightly different versions with slight ergonomic touch and thumb buttons only on one side?

Both, it depends on the shape itself.

I prefer small light ambidextrous mice for FPS games, they just feel better when doing a lot of fast movements with claw/fingertip grip. I don't like the trend of ambidextrous mice having thumb buttons on both sides since buttons on the right side tend to get in the way of where I want my ring finger :/

For anything except FPS games it doesn't matter to me if the mouse is ambidextrous or ergonomic.

Hard to tell. I've been using ambidextrous mice a lot more than ergonomic, and I feel more confident with ambidex. But in game, I play just as good with both the 3.0 and EC1 as the 1.1, WMO and AM. I'm trying to switch over to ergonomic as it's better for my hand, I don't know if I ever will feel as confident with ergonomic.

^This.There are good shapes in both camps. That being said my DeathAdder is by far the most comfortable and accurate mouse I have ever had so I'm voting ergonomic this time.
