They have different sensors and different shapes. It's hard to say when the Rival hasn't even been tested.
I hear that the DeathAdder 2013 is great, but feels weird sensor wise. To me the DeathAdder appears to be higher in quality. I don't like the shape overall though. It uses lighter switches and a braided cable.
The Rival could have a better feeling sensor. The shape looks better is areas I don't like on the DeathAdder. Switches are likely stiffer on the Rival because they have a high life rating. There isn't a braided cable. It has a configurable CPI button and "native" steps of 50. Also has configurable color LEDs, not just green.Comment (Click to show)

I suppose most people identify claw grip by the general idea of planting wrist and moving mouse with in a select range, normally raised sensitivity or CPI combination. Low lift off distance is greatly beneficial. - A lot of quake players use this.
I define the grip by the usage of the fingers.
Claw grip bends the fingers; it doesn't matter if your palm touches the mouse or not. Palm grip lays the hand flat; it has the most contact with the mouse. Finger tip uses the fingers to move the mouse in all directions without anything else touching the mouse.
I think that is the best way to define things. Saying you have a "hybrid" grip -- palm touching, with fingers clawing, while wrist is on the table -- is confusing and convoluted.Edited by popups - 10/27/13 at 12:51pm
