I love the g303 though it could certainly be improved without taking anything away from what makes it a great shape. TBH, I think they should make more shapes not modify the current ones. Maybe phase some out if they become less popular when they release a new similar shape, but you aren't going to make everyone happy with a small number of shapes. Zowie actually has a fairly large number if you count all the sizes and still has nothing even remotely close to what I would want.
If I were starting a mouse company the first thing I would do is try to have 3 shapes each attempting to cater to a specific grip type. I really don't think a mouse can be great for both claw grip and palm grip at the same time and yet companies seem to claim their mice are good for both which makes me think they are trying to compromise between a shape that is good for one and a shape that is good for the other. Palm grippers seem to consider the mouse filling their hand as a good thing while I get disgusted if the mouse shape makes it so that the arch comes anywhere near my palm. I actually use a pretty flat claw/fingertip weird hybrid grip or something though I guess. The way my hand is positioned looks more like standard pictures of finger tip grip, but the contact points are a claw grip though the base of my palm isn't always touching. A lot of the grips that claim they are good for multiple styles honestly just look like palm grip mice to me though.
Edit: I should have said "Zowie actually has a fairly large number if you count all the sizes and still doesn't currently make anything even remotely close to what I would want." the mico looks like it could be nice.
Human hands are very similar, difference being the size. It's an obvious statement, not an argument. Yet some mouse companies design their products based off how they come across in pictures rather than how they feel in the human hand.
If you can't get good contact with the FK's palm area why make it look like a palm grip mouse? Just make a mouse like the G302/3. A few millimeter changes would be subtle enough not to change the personality of the mouse, whereas a redesign of the G303 would be closer to doing.
Sounds like you want a very small mouse that will never touch your palm. The FK2 wouldn't be that mouse, nor would a ZA13, even a G100S is likely not for you.Edited by popups - 1/26/16 at 4:31pm
