Mouse for heavy fingers?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just got a deathadder 2013 and am noticing more than ever that I regularly accidentally click the right mouse button just by resting my finger on it. I occasionally did this with my old G500 but not as much. It really only seems to be a problem with the right mouse button though.

Can anyone suggest a mouse that the buttons aren't super sensitive.

You're in luck mate.

The ideal mouse for you then will be the Zowie EC1 eVo, which has Huano switches instead of Omrons (Huanos are quite a bit stiffer, they rock for FPS). I used to accidentally click my Mamba's right button a lot as well, never accidentally right clicked on my eVo though. Also, the EC1 has a shape that is very close to the Deathadder and is very easy to adapt to. It's actually better than the Deathadder shape after you get used to it.

Pros:
- Flawless sensor
- Really nice rubber texture that doesn't make my hand sweat like the rubber on my Mamba.
- Very lightweight, which is great for low-sens and FPS gaming (I'm sure this is great for all games really)
- Cable is really lightweight as well, since getting the mouse I am pleasantly surprised that it is not a braided cable (which adds weight/stiffness)
- Huge mousefeet, they glide really well on both my glass mousepad (Icemat) and my cloth mousepad (Qck+).
- Also comes with a spare pair of mouse feet.
- No annoying drivers (I'm looking at you Razer).
- Great for palm gripping.
- "Notchy"/Heavy Scroll wheel - great for FPS games where you intend to only scroll the wheel a specific number of 'steps'.

Cons:
- "Notchy"/Heavy Scroll wheel - not so great for using internet browsers or games where you want to scroll in and out really quickly.
- Can't turn off the LED that illuminates the mousewheel.

$60 well spent.

Dude... you're awesome. My follow up question would be for recommendations for what you call a "notchy" scroll wheel and apparently this is my mouse.

So your Con is actually a HUGE plus for me.

I'm buying this mouse right away.

Thanks so much!

Oh don't get me wrong, I love the notchy scroll wheel while I'm playing games, I just don't like it that much when browsing the net.

One last thing I forgot to mention about this mouse, is make sure you have a solid colored mousepad, apparently the sensor this mouse uses (Avago ADNS 3090) has issues with mousepads that have a bunch of different colors on them. I suggest the all black SteelSeries Qck+ or Qck Heavy.

I just so happened to have just bought a SteelSeries Qck thumb.gif

Just wanted to chip in with another confirmation to go with the Zowie: I really prefer the Huanos over Omron for gaming, never had any mispresses. Happened constantly with say the Abyssus. The scroll wheel is really good for gaming- not so much for desktop work. I also happen to use my Zowie on a QcK, and the tracking is flawless. Dpi are quite off (mine is 488/1220), so if you want to play FPS there's a little testing ahead to find out your models effective dpi to adjust your sensitivity accordingly. Takes 1 minute though.

Uh, yeah, EC1 is my fav mouse too. IMO the wheel is just fine for browsin' n' stuff if you tweak your system settings a bit to scroll extra lines per tick.

But in addition to using a good pad, I recommend using a DPI setting other than 450dpi. There's some input lag on the lowest setting which the higher levels practically fix. You can compensate for that by lowering your game sens settings.

Happy days, Mr post man just dropped off my mouse.

To be honest I can't tell too much of a difference in the sensitivity of the right button compared to the deathadder. It feels very slightly stiffer. I still may have problems with accidentally clicking it but I'll just have to learn to control myself.

The wheel is very nice. I love how defined each click is, just what i was looking for.

I also love the material they used, it has a very soft rubbery feel.

The ergonomic are quite nice too.

I'm also very happy about the lack of software involved, that deathadder with its synapse BS annoyed me... I never even bothered installing it because I wasn't about to make an account for some online cloud storage for settings.

Overall I think I'll be very happy with this mouse. we'll see for sure tonight when I get home and game on it.

Again, thanks for the recommendation thumb.gif
