I think their sizes fit in your group quite well
Thanks for this info, I'll use this to help in my selection. I think my main concern with the Savu and the Kone Pure is that the back side where the palm wrests sits very high (and thats what makes it look bulky). This is what makes the spawn a really good shape, the back end is low to the ground so it doesn't run into your palm when you're "boxing units". Much of the mouse action involves moving it forward, and then pulling back towards your palm, and the easier this is to do, the better the mouse for RTS.
But also regarding the other two comments, there most definitely are a lot of mice that I classify as "FPS mice" because they are complete trash for competitive RTS play. You might say "it works fine in sc2" and that can be true but its different at semi-pro and pro level play. The inferno falls into this category, it really is a horrible mouse for competitive play (I had one and could tell immediately).
The kinds of mice that I'm talking about here are small, claw/finger grip mice that have small mouse feet so they don't sit heavy on the pad. Pro RTS players have to move the mouse VERY fast but still with exceptional accuracy, and this can only be achieved with a certain grip style and correspondingly a certain mouse shape. These other mice that are large and palm-grip types with huge teflon feet are much better suited to less actual hand motion (since they are initiated by the wrist and not the fingers), which is the kind of thing you'd find great for aiming in FPS games. If you actually look at your hand when you're playing a FPS game you'll see that it doesn't really move that much. But competitive RTS requires fast and erratic movements.
