Not sure, seems between the Palm and Fingertip grip
2. What's your sensitivity?
DPI is 3500
3. What's your maximum budget?
4. Do you want additional buttons?
At least 5 buttons, I wouldn't mind more though
5. What games do you play?
Starcraft II, though may get into more FPS's (CS:GO, TF2)
6. Do you mind about prediction?
7. Other relevant information:
I currently use a Razer Abyssus, it was millions of times better than an old logitech laser mouse I used (personal preference, it was a G500?) Though I kinda miss the two extra buttons it had.
I don't mind playing at a DPI that lower than 3500, and so far I am inclined to go with the EC1 or EC2 and the Roccat Kone Pure Optical Core mouse. The second one seems more customizable but the EC1 and EC2 both seem pretty big. I've used the sensei my brother owns and it felt nicer to me than my abyssus (due to size) but I can adapt to the size (though, I am more inclined to get something bigger than the abyssus...).
The main thing that I find interesting about the roccat is that it actually has the option to go to 400-800 DPI or higher which apparently is the best settings to use for most FPS's (though, not sure if that's fact or just preference due to the fact that pros find playing with that DPI more comfortable since it's what they used for the longest time and everyone copies them, though I did notice my shooting accuracy in TF2 and CS:GO improved when I lowered the DPI and modified a few mouse settings?)
The EC1 or 2 eVo (not sure what the difference between the two is) the size and the extra two buttons and the fact that it doesn't seem to require any drivers as well.
I do notice that more people seem to recommend the FK over the EC mice, is there a reason?
If anyone else has any other recommendation that's fine by me since my mind hasn't completely been made up.
Edit: Another thing I want to add, I'm only going with optical mice but if someone can tell me if laser mice are actually as optical mice now I wouldn't mind going for the Sensei either. Though, not sure if this difference is completely noticable or not yet. I just looked at the Sensei and notice the price isn't too different from the EC1 or 2 eVo or the roccat.
