Okay thanks. This is still a hard choice with the options you've given me. Seems like between the Finalmouse, Rival, and EC2-A, each have their own small quirks or issues. They're also all pretty expensive...so it's not easy to make a choice. The only thing I know is that I got a chance to feel the Rival and I liked how that felt.

I'll give you my honest opinion about these mice, ok? And keep in mind that my hand is 17,5~18cm

Rival: Basically flawless. Good tracking, build quality is good, scrollwheel and buttons are alright. The feet are kinda bad for most people, but I liked it. The only problem was the lateral rubber, it's annoying for me and I put an electrical tape on it.
I just don't use it because there's other mice with a better shape for me (Zowie AM, G100s, Newmen GX1 Pro. And yes, I prefer ambidextrous mice, but I like some 'ergo' mice as well)

EC2-A: It's kinda small for me, idk why, because I do like small mice. But that shape just didn't feel right with that size. The EC1-A would've been better for me, I guess. Build quality is slightly better than the Rival, the scrollwheel is a bit worse but whatever, the clicks are nice (but a bit stiff for me), and the tracking is basically the same as the Rival.

DA2013: The build quality is just alright, the shape isn't for me and it feels kinda unconfortable, especially because of this. The Synapse is really bad IMO, probably one of the worst softwares I've tested, besides the random CM ones and the M60 one.
But the tracking isn't bad, and a lot of people like it's shape. Compared to the other 2, this is the last option for me.

I haven't tested the Finalmouse yet, but it's a good mouse. Overpriced, I know, but 74g is 74g.
The Rival, ECx-A and the Finalmouse share the same sensor (PMW3310), but each company implements it the way they want to. That's why some 3310 mice feel more 'raw' than others, or more 'precise' than others.

I haven't used the EC2-A so I bit the bullet and ordered it. As much as I'd like there to be a mouse that everyone agrees to be the best - that simply isn't the case. But the EC2-A seemed to have the most favorable opinions (even compared to the Finalmouse), so I feel like I have to at least try it. If I don't like it, I will ship it back and just pick up the Rival from my local Best Buy. I'm really surprised how polarizing mice are. Seems very subjective and the build quality appears to be a little shoddy (many people reporting their mice breaking in short periods of time). Even the EC2-A has a few people who weren't big fans of it and had a negative experience with it. Seems like all I can really do is give it a shot.

Makes me curious if I'd like the Mamba if I actually gave it a shot. Though that might be a waste of time if I come across the issues everyone else has been complaining about.

So I'm using the Mamba at the moment and it's OK. I can't help but feel like there's some weird mouse acceleration going on - as if it's not tracking all my movement, specifically when moving the mouse slowly, diagonally. I don't know if that's in my head or actually a problem with the mouse. Also, it's hard for me to do my usual claw grip on it. The big, sharper shape forces me into more of a palm grip.

For $80, how can this be so highly rated? Razer must pay a lot of ad $....
