Mice without big butts

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I know I'm not the only one to feel this way, and I apologize if there have been threads on this in the past (not exactly sure what to search for), but what are viable/modern(ish) mice that don't have big butts? I'm not just talking about specifically a g100s shape, but really anything that doesn't have a huge butt. All of the mice that have been coming out cater to a lazy boy palm grip and fill the hand. After switching to a g303 from a zowie mouse, my eyes have been opened; I don't like big butts.

Off the top of my head, here's a list of mice that don't have big butts.

G302/303
G100s (low malfunction speed = rip)
Torq X5
SUPER SECRET MLG LOGITECH G200 (spooky)
Ninox Aurora
ZM-M600R/Nmouse 4k (something about the sensor being questionable?)

I'm not necessarily searching for mice that are of a convex shape like the G100s, but anything that doesn't "fill the hand". I just couldn't think of anything that isn't a convex shape that doesn't fill the hand.

Hopefully I'm missing some decent mice, because it would be nice to know if people like me have options other than waiting for the new Logitech mouse.

Thanks.

Here is a semi recent thread on the topic.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1597644/best-egg-shaped-mice-currently-available

Apparently there is a way to get the sica to decently low click latency now so that may actually be a decent option, but at the time I didn't consider it one because it had something like 16ms click latency which is just too much imo. I think you can get it down to like 8ms or lower now. Uaokk would know and I'm sure it is in the thread for the sica or another Asus mouse.

Anyway I think the best options are the g303, nmouse 4k, evga x5, g100s, sica, or wait for the new logitech. I haven't tried all of those so I can't say for sure which is the best, but I love my g303. I consider the x5 and g100s pretty good mice though.

I'm currently on a g303 with the lens taped down, and I can agree that it's pretty neato. I'm returning my X5 because of the materials etc, but it's a pretty good mouse. My g303's sides have worn out and the braided cable is starting to fray, so I've been looking to either buy something else or more g303s. I used a g100s before my zowie mouse, and I was unsatisfied with the malfunction speed, even when not using it in FPS games. Haven't really looked into the Sica, definitely will do that. Thanks.

MLT04 mice suffer from the same problem as the g100s (low malfunction speed). Also that 400 dpi is a little yucky tbh, but that's less important. It also still has a little bit of a butt. I wouldn't consider something like this a "viable" option, but I guess it's worth mentioning if it fits someone else's criteria.
