Looking for a claw/fingertip mouse

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I am in search of the perfect mouse for me but I could greatly benefit from some advice. I am a claw/fingertip user. I started off using the A4Tech Bloody V7 which was a great mouse for my grip but it was too heavy and the mouse feet did not glide on my QcK. I then switched to the logitech g402 which was a great mouse but was too palm oriented, resulting in hand pain. For several months now I have been using the DeathAdder Chroma which is the best so far but by no means my ideal mouse. My thumb aches after hours of aggressively gripping the side, my trigger finger gets worn out and my hand feels like it has been stretched or something after hours of use. Since I do play CS:GO seriously I need a mouse that is not only comfy but allows me to perform at my best.

With that, I have considered many mice and would like to know which would likely suit me as a lightweight and normal sized mouse. I believe my hands are a little under 18 cm.

- The FinalMouse (not sure which of the many releases)
- The Zowie FK ( not sure if the FK 1 or 2)
- The Logitech G302/3, although I am not sure the shape would facilitate my intended mouse movement.
- The SS Rival ( although it appears to be more palm friendly)

I am open to any and all other mice as long as they fit the aforementioned criteria.

Some images of my grip style (apologies for the abysmal photography) :

Thanks in advance!

Good thing you provided pics. I don't think the G303 is good for that style of claw. Actually, I tried the XM300 out (sent it back) and I think it suits that type of claw grip really well.

Might wanna factor mouse weight in too. That grip looks like it needs a lightweight mouse.

Yes! I was afraid my gripping style may be a bit eccentric. Aside from the shape, what would you rate the XM300? Is it a reliable mouse in terms of performance?

Right you are, as I mentioned in the post, I prefer lightweight mice.

Welp, there's always the Logitec Anyhwere MX or the Razer Orochi. But yeah, not exactly ideal for gaming.

I'm in the same department as you. Looking for a light fingertip/claw mouse, for smallish-hands (16-17 cm).

I did actually get the G303 because of how it was smaller than most other mice, but it's useless for that grip style. The butt is much too high, so you're already loosing the 5 or so cm of "length gain" youd'd have over more traditional mice anyways, since you can't actually put the G303's butt at the end of your palm but can only put it into the middle of it.

I was also looking at the EC2-A, which has a butt that goes all the way down in a proper slope (much like the Deathadder) and is some 7cm shorter than the Deathadder, but supply on that one seems to be short, and I don't want to purchase from shoddy retailers abroad, given all the talk there's about the quality of Zowie mice.

This struggle is real, my friend. I agree, I think something with a proper slope is the right way to go. I quite like the DeathAdder but it needs changes to its dimensions, maybe the EC2-A can provide that. I'll check it out.

Only hope I know of is a CM Spawn 3360 refresh, but they're pretty hit or miss on firmware

If by "hit or miss" you meant "miss or miles off target" then yes

What about the Abyssus? Small, light, and the archetype of competitive fingertip/claw mice.
