Looking for the holy grail of mice.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
1. What's your grip style?
Palm grip

2. What's your sensitivity?
Not sure but I think 2.2 ingame sens @ 400dpi in csgo would qualify as low.

3. What's your maximum budget?
80$ top

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Only side buttons

5. What games do you play?
Counter strike: Global Offensive only.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
No prediction

7. Other relevant information:
- Mice I have owned in the past but I don't like for a reason or another:
o Zowie EC1 eVo: Like everything but the shape. It is just too big. Coating is perfect for me. Side buttons feel mushy and one is broken.
o I have a g400s but I cannot get used to the shape. I don't like the coating because it gets slipery for some reason. Quality is top notch though.
o HATE THE COATING. I have a painted one so it might be the reason. Not a fan of the shape either.
- The mouse has to be small. I have small hands
- The coating has to be similar to the one on the EC1 eVo.
- Sensor has to be perfect with low LOD.
- I would rather not buy something cheap that would break easily.
- Mice I am looking at right now:
o Zowie EC2 eVo (CL or not): That would be the logical choice after using the EC1 for so long.
o Roccat Kone Optical: I'm hearing great things about this mouse. I like the driver it uses and it seems like the shape would be perfect for me.

Are there any other small mice with good sensor and good quality that doesn't use the IM1.1 shape?

mionix avior 7000, zowie ec2 evo, logitech g502 (is very heavy, is decently big, but thinner then ec1 i think), I think roccat is coming out with two new optical mice soonish. q3 of this year.

Love my G600. I don't game much, but I put it to use alongside my G13 for basic desktop functions (refresh a page, closing a tab or window, recalling closed tabs, double & triple clicking, drag-lock...)

And they're cheap enough to nab 2-3 in a batch biggrin.gif
The white ones however are a pita to keep clean.

It's a comfort to use, its side buttons are perhaps the most comfortable imo with placement that doesn't feel awkward. It's mostly just nice to have a mouse with max utility on account of LGS

First of all forget any 3090 sensor mice like the Kone Optical. It's nowhere at low LOD.

Weeell it's rather low sens, not quite sure if you'd hit the malfunction speed while doing 180s with a Zowie mouse. Else i'd recommend the mentioned EC2 eVo (non CL due to peeling coating).
Personally i don't think there are nice mice featuring a decent sensor that do fit a palm grip. There are but no small mice for small hands currently.
As mentioned the Roccat Pure Military which comes later this year might be a good bet with its 3310 sensor.

The Rival seems to big according to your description, else i'd recommend that as #1 for people who search a palm mouse.
My personal shape recommendation for you would be the Deathadder 2013. However it seems to break fast (atleast mine died after 1 year) and people reported smoothing on it. So it's also out of question.

Imo. Can you wait? Get the Roccat Pure Military later. You can't, you don't hit the malfunction speed? Get the EC2 eVo.
Are you able to sacrifice some points you've mentioned above? Get a 3310 mouse like the Rival.

You can always order something from amazon, try and RMA it.

The Roccat Kone Optical has high LOD without the tape mod. I have just ordered the Corsair M45, which is on the smaller side and quite light without the weights (90g). It has the 3110 sensor that's very accurate and has no accel or prediction. It also has adjustable LOD.

I play CS:GO at pretty much the same sense as you.

I've been using the Razer Deathadder for quite some time now, it's great for CS:GO.

You'd probably be able to palm a Corsair M45 with small hands. It's what I do.
