With the Xai on the other hand I have my thumb and pinkie touch the sides of the mouse, the rest of the fingers simply sit on top of the buttons and if I wanna palm the mouse my palm just touches the back of it. There are no awkward shapes which force my fingers into certain positions, no uncomfortable edges that touch my hand and it also happens to be that the length, width and height of the Xai fit my hand rather well. With most ergonomic mice you have to somehow align your hand to fit on the mouse and keep it like that all the time you use the mouse, while with the Xai I can simply forget it's even there. Sucks it has that A-9500 sensor but hey... that's a different story.
The rotation on DA is more about a not-so-good shape than it being ergonomic, IMO. I dunno why the ring finger area can't go like \ instead of /
Ambidextrous mice sure allow you to align the sensor more freely... That might be important or not depending on a bunch of things, mainly how the mouse is designed. DA isn't even very far from an ambidextrous mouse in the sense that you can grip it very variedly.
Uh, and are you saying only the back of your palm touches Xai? That's claw grip
