I didn't have an issue w/ button placement. That was quite nice actually.

How grips vary! It's flared rears (WMO & co.) that ruin my grip...

Actually it's more on the larg side.
The dimensions show the Taipan being pretty similar to the Steelseries Kana, which I've found to be on the small side. It's just difficult for me to envision it somehow being too large based on that.

Out of the mice I've tried, the most comfortable I've used have all been MS mice with other issues I didn't like:

IMO 1.1 = very comfy, love the texture, but the dpi is just too low for me (I tend to use high sensitivity)
MS laser mouse 6000 = great shape, but they put the L/R side buttons way too much to the front
MS comfort mouse 6000 = only tried in store, very comfy feeling, but no right side button + I read it had bad wheel button and prediction issues

In general, the more gradual the slope in the back of the mouse or the more it fits my hand, the more I'm likely to like it. I don't like flared rears either.

Can we agree on G1 shape? biggrin.gif

Don't have the same issue with kana, but the limited coverage area around buttons was beyond silly.

Otherwise, didn't mind it. Design "revisions" compared to Xai molds (Sensei, Kinzu) make the mouse a bit worse than it needed to be.


Flared rears can be situational to benefiting a design. I feel it allows for larger hands to grip a smaller mouse in certain cases. Though grip is very very subjective~

Not for me. If they had side buttons like the G3, that would be something, but their main buttons are also too small. Can't claw are fingertip these mice, because their main buttons are too short.
