Help recommend me my new mouse?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all, well a long story short, I've used the logitech mx518 series for a hell of a long time, gone from the mx500 - 518 - g400, over a period of like 7 years or something. I'm making the change from a very low sensitivity player to a high one, and I dont find my g400 very easy to do this with, I find it a bit too big and heavy for this kind of thing. I've used my friends death adder and it just seems to feel so much smoother and more accurate. In all honesty the ideal mouse for me would be the razer imperator but im scared to try it in case i waste my money since it has the dodgy sensor and Z axis lift off issue - is it worth a shot?

so what im after is:
-Smaller and lighter than the g400
-2 thumb buttons
-Dont want any buttons on the right side of the mouse, ei some ambidextrous mice (annoys my ring finger)

mice i have tried and ruled out:
Death Adder, bit too big, fits awkwardly in my hand
roccat savu, dunno just didnt like it, felt cheap
steele series sensai, had ring finger buttons
steelseries ikari optical, hated the right side of the mouse, ring and pinky finger annoyance
logitech g9x, too flat and ring finger issues

So i think that kind of rules out the mionix and cm spawn type mice, where it controls the ring and pinky finger


That about wraps if up, i'll edit this if i think of any other reasons,
thanks

You could try a Zowie Ec2 evo. It has a similar shape like the deathadder but is a bit smaller.

Note: there is an ec1 evo that is approximately as big as the DA. And the ec2 evo is a bit smaller

#2 was right the ec2 will fit you but those zowie mice has a really low lift off distance and it will makes the mouse lose track if you swing too fast on certain colorful mouse pads (like qck team series) , I emailed zowie's staff and they say it is normal...

anyway

try roccat kone pure :]

thanks for the replies, ive actually looked at the zowie ec2 and put some thought into it.
I also looked at the roccat cone pure but I thought i read somewhere on this board that its really similar in shape to the Savu, so i was hesitant to look into it any further
