I have tiny hands and a claw grip, its perfect. It was weird at first but now my hand locks onto this mouse like it it was born with it. It also has a great sensor. Its low profile which it seems many mice developers cannot wrap their heads around anymore. Every mouse, even small has to have a huge hump in the palm area. I hate that! It is way to uncomfortable and destroys any attempt at a claw grip.

Mice I have used in order by best: I'll just list a few since I have over 20

Logitech G303 : my lead mouse. My k/d ratio is very in my favor in CS:GO and other FPSers I play online
Logitech G502: all around great mouse. Even though its long its lower profile allowing small handed gamers to easily grasp it.
Roccat Military: also a great mouse for small handed gamers
Mionix Caster
.......... after that its anything goes....the majority of the rest are either to long or to tall or a composition of both features. Or their sensor/features are not as good.

after 19 years of PC gaming I have come to realize that you can become accustom to any mouse. We are now spoiled. I used to be deadly in online fps with the original Razor death adder and the Logitech MX310. Today I would automatically throw them in the trash.
I honestly don't mind the shape, is the loud ass scroll wheel and button clicks that are gonna make me refund this.

Depending how adventurous you are, you could lubricate the wheel up a bit and limit down the noise

Just had to double quote the hilarity and seriousness of this. Mouse shape isn't working out for me => mouse is at fault. That line of reasoning is top shelf. biggrin.gif

DA shape never really worked out well for me, good to know I can blame the mouse. applaud.gif As opposed to say, my preferences don't favor that shape.

I see what you mean. You were blaming the RSI itself on the user, not necessarily the shape incompatibility. Well, that just makes you a bit of a judgmental jerk then tongue.gif - what if the user just wanted to see if he could get used to it? What if the onset of RSI was sudden?

If you notice, he didn't say he kept using the mouse after he got the pain.

But otherwise, we do both agree, then, that mouse-shape incompatibility itself is not the fault or an issue with the user. Correct?

Some things are incompatible with some people, this mouse is great if it fits you but otherwise it is not. Shape>sensor.
Same here unfortunately. I like pretty much everything on that mouse, but after 2 weeks of using it as my only mouse and no swapping inbetween, I had very ugly pain in the upper area of my hand. Not the wrist or the fingers, but the back of my hand. Ditched it then and for the time used sth big and palm friendly like Rival where I could just slap my hand on top and won't need any pressure. That was the only mouse I could use after that 'accident'. Didn't go to the doctor though. The pain went away after 3-4 days.

I'm pretty sure that saying is meant for people blaming their skill-level on their equipment, not whether or not their equipment is giving them pain. wink.gif

I'd like to share with you my adventures with the G303. Was given one as a gift, was my thoroughly made choice, and at that moment was using the A4tech V3M (a Deathadder copy with anodised aluminum feet). Thought the G303 would be fine for holding it with my fingers only, same as I hold the V3M. The latter is in general a good mouse, except for the fact that when you click the hard blue (or are they red?) Huano switches, the mouse can glide a way a bit due to the metal feet xD Well you can get used to that, but I thought, that the G303 would've been better, and that a "better" sensor would be perceptible, not just a placebo. What it turned out to be: a week or two with pain in the pinky, exchanging in for a G502 (with the goal of getting the same sensor); the G502 was a piece of junk (sorry Logitech) that weighed like a brick, had a really stiff cord and of course no fingertip either! Plus, it had a faulty sensor since I couldn't aim the same pixel-perfect way in BC2 (which is why I buy these for, in the first place) as with the G303. Returned the G502 (hardly returned, since the sales assistant refused to accept my understanding of "this mouse doesn't work the way it should"). Then spent two or three hours at the shop comparing the Abyssus to the G303. And I must tell you, I was probably a fool to buy the G303 once again based on the fact that it has better cursor quality on the desktop! Since in the game, with a low sensitivity, they're all the same, including my old V3M (which uses the PixArt 3305PDK sensor).. And the G303 has a really, really stiff cord that seems to live its own life, and a weird shape that actually induces pain in the pinky. Wish I could just RMA it based on how unhealthy it is!

That said, it does have a very nice sensor and superb clicks. It's the ergonomics where Logitech have shot themselves in the foot.

P.S. How much can you sell a used G710+ for? I'm thinking about refurbing one by installing a few new keys obtained under warranty and get smth nicer, probably tenkeyless, that doesn't take as much space. Or maybe just mod the case and install decent keys?

Regardless of the pad, you'll have to replace the stock feet with the skates, not stack them on, and use surface calibration, or you'll experience skipping.

êsFechar tela cheiaHello people..
I will post my experience using the g303.
Got the mouse in November 2015 and previously owned the abyssus 3500.
At the beginning right away realized that the sensor was too but much higher, but the shape, weight and low lod made me wonder the mouse.
Am player QuakeLive and missed agility muscle memory that it had acquired over the abyssus.
The weight of the mouse on a precision scale was 89 grams, 68 grams abyssus possessed.
Then I open the mouse and cut off some parts of plastic useless without changing the chassis and running.
also I changed the original thick cable with a braided also a taipan razer I had here.
Only these changes the weight of the mouse already decreased to 80 grams.
already I felt a huge difference in speed with the mouse, especially in flyck shots.
later I cut off the feet that are wrapped sensor.
now much already practicing with the mouse feel in ecstasy controlling the mouse.
and so naturally fluent and accurate.
the form already is not a problem for me and already tried to use non-slip tape on the sides of the mouse but found odd.
these days atraz called my old abyssus to compare and the difference is very large.
I love the sensor and now love the way.
not to mention design that is too much.
then my conclusion is that all of them have this mouse do these modifications and take a while to get used to it, because then never will want another!
