Definitive fingertip / clawhybrid mouse for the smaller handed user (~17.5cm) (fingertip / claw grip / device for work)

Haha. <- and that's all the fun I will have. I will copy / paste a post from the G303 thread here. I doing that because I realized it is a pretty serious request that delves into a lot of brand territory and didn't want to keep it on the G303 thread. I need a comfortable mouse for work, and when or if you make a recommendation I would appreciate it VERY much why you do it (what makes you think the mouse you are recommending is good, what have you used before and why have you given that up). Please understand that this is a device I am using in a work environment, rather stressful, 8 to 10 hrs a day minimum.

Copy / paste:

So hello to everyone.

I've been looking for a new mouse for almost a year now. For work. I repeat: for work.
I think I'm mostly a finger tip user, that's what I feel gives me the most control. The problem I'm having is that I'm lately getting very nasty cramps in my wrist. Something like tendonitis. Next to that I get a sore index finger after a long day of use, mainly from middle clicking. And to top it off because of the combination of grip style and mouse ergonomics I am getting a curbed, deformed ring finger.

What I've tried so far:

Corsair M60: very bad, heavy, would say almost for palm grip, maybe claw. The most disgusting and hard middle click on any mouse.
Razer Orochi: too small, center of gravity weird, has sharp features that are discomforting for the ring finger.
CM Xornet: maybe slightly discomforting, the cable is way too thick and heavy for such a light mouse, drags. Have a weird feeling of tension in the hand while holding. Would say is quite tiring.
And various others. Right now I'm using this: a4Tech weird little guy

This a4Tech is pretty good because of the size, but the middle click is not great at all and it has a sharp feature on the right side that really hurts my ring finger after long periods of use.

I am now looking at these two:

Zowie EC2 A
and
Logitech g303
and
Kinzu V3
and
CAD mouse

Any thoughts? Any other models I should consider?!
Thanks.

Zowie Mico was designed for fingering / clawing. Zowie is a reputable brand too, so it should last a while.

The other is the SS Sensei Wireless; being wireless it's easier to use on the wist (lighter) and gets rid of cables.
It's ambidextrous so you can hold it whatever way you like.
GL!!

Deathadder/Intelli-shaped mice would be good for work, especially if you have cramps in your wrist, as resting a hand on such mice gives the most relaxing position for your hand. They're essentially palm-grip, but if your hands are big you could fingertip it, I believe. But remember that fingertipping a mouse usually means you move your wrist a lot and that could lead to a carpal tunnel syndrome - try add more elbow movement.

And why not try a vertical mouse - you never know what's best for you until you try it.

Thanks for chipping in. The short answer to your proposition would be simply money. I cannot try them all. And very few stores around here keep professional / gaming mice on display to test.

My concern with palm gripping is the following: I do a lot of 3d viz work - so the most common type of movement from the mouse would be this: a lot of clicks and small cursor adjustments in a small screen space, then rapidly moving to another region of my dual-screen setup, doing a lot of clicks and small adjustments, and repeat. The problem with palm gripping for me is in doing vertical movements. With finger tippring I can easily just push / pull the mouse with my finger without adjusting my elbow position. I cannot do the same with a palm grip and that's what I find so hard / frustrating about it.

If you want to try, order 'em off Le Amazon. At least here in the UK / EU there is a laq stating that you can send things back within 15 days ...

Oh my god...
I ordered this over the weekend and it has just arrived - I have to say it's pretty big. Cannot finger tip grip it properly. Will give it a day of testing but if anyone is interested in more details...

I'd recommend something like a G100s (or any of its shell cousins like Rx250) for office comfort. Also cheap.
Fast enough
