Claw grip (optical) mouse for BIG hand

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I need a recommendation for a claw grip mouse as I have struggled a lot in the past yeaars and have yet to find the perfect one.
I have a big hand with long-skinny fingers and most mouses I have tried are not big enough to make the claw-grip comfortable to me.

The best mouse I have tried shape-wise is the Roccat Kone. However I had a very bad experience with the laser tracking (of the 3200 version) and I have avoided laser mice since then!

The mice that have come most close for my grip are the Logitech G400 and the Razer Deathadder. However I still want something a bit bigger.
The last mouse I tried was the Mionix Naos 7000 however despite the ergonomic shape it is clearly a palm grip mouse and didnt fit me.

I know there is an optical version of the Kone, however its kind of limited/expensive and hard to find in Europe. I dont fancy paying 120 euros for a mouse without local warranty.
So the thing is, is there any other optical mouse you can suggest? Or should I maybe give Laser another shot and try the Kone XTD laser? (still expensive though)

I'd reccomend waiting for the release of the Cougar 400M/450M, the dimensions will be 135(L) X 67(W) X 40(H) mm, which is about as big as it can get i guess. It's ambidextrous, so suited for claw grip, and has a 3090/3310 optical sensor.

There is already a thread a bout it, maybe you wanna take a look =)

Kone Pure Military isn't hard to find in Europe afaik.

Yup. If you like the Kone, than go for the Kone Pure Military. Problem solved. It shouldn't be difficult to find if you have access to amazon. Same with Kone XTD Optical if you wanted a bigger version. Keep searching because this sounds like your optimal mouse.

kone pure is too small for my paw biggrin.gif
the xtd optical can be found in amazon but the price is very high including shipping and considering the warranty wont be local, its not very tempting.

I gotta check the cougar... Any other huge mice like this?

IME 3.0
Dont get the Legends edition because I heard the mouse skates were bad or something.

Maybe look into the Mionix mice? Castor or Avior/Naos 7000. Just make sure it's a 7000 series with either the Avior or Naos. The SS Rival(300) could also be an option since it's larger than all the mice you've listed, is optical and can cater to a palm user and isn't very expensive. Should be no more than $55 US on amazon.

Zowie mice tend to run thin, but a ZA11 or FK1 could work for claw gripping with a bigger hand.
