Looking for a new mouse (claw grip, MOBA/MMO/FPS). Currently have a G400, simply don't like it.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have had quite a number of gaming mice over the years. MX518, multiple deathadders, NAGA, G400 and a couple other older ones.

Of all the mice I have used, the Naga was by far my favorite. I originally got it for MMO's, but it fit my hand like a glove. I never had a mouse I enjoyed using more. However, like my three previous Deathadders, it broke, and began double clicking randomly. They changed the NAGA and it no longer is the same shape as the original.

I picked up a G400 after reading about the sensor and other features. I have been using it for the past 5 months or so, and have come to the conclusion it's not for me. I like smaller mice, and I use a claw grip. The G400 just doesn't fit my style at all.

So here I am, asking what mouse you guys recommend for someone who enjoys mice on the smaller side, and uses a claw grip. I am open to any suggestions.

Go for a R.A.T 5|7|9, you can customize the mouse depending on what you're playing..

It's hard enough finding a shape you're comfortable with, so if the Naga fits like glove, just get another one. The original shape Naga editions are still being sold just about everywhere except the Razer store, and cheaper too, so by all means go for it. I've had 2 of them break since 2009 and I'm currently on my third. From my point of view, even if you have to get a new one every 2 years, it's still worth it.

Otherwise, you can try the Roccat Savu, which to me felt pretty close in terms of comfort, has better tracking and possibly build quality. Only 2 thumb buttons though.

Whatever you do, don't get a R.A.T. Aside from tracking badly and looking like a cheap toy for toddlers, it didn't feel anywhere close to the Naga's comfort when I tried it, even after customizing it to my "liking". No one who matters (competitive gamers, hardware testers...) takes this mouse seriously.

The FK does appear to have things going for it.

Just listen to my one tip

Don't. Buy. Used.

Just backing this up. Save yourself the trouble and spend the money up front instead of spending more to fix it later...

If you're looking for a mouse with a bunch if thumb buttons the Naga is the only mouse worth bothering with, if not you might try a Mionix Naos or CM spawn. The spawn is much smaller but does have the ring finger rest.
