In a relaxed palm/claw grip, your hand is going to form an arch in that area unless you grip the mouse slightly different than me.


For me it's not a problem since most of the job to get a nice grip is done by the base of my palm so secure the back of the mouse and my fingers on the side, as you'll see in pic bellow, my thumb isn't that curved but relaxed and my little and ring finger are touching each other in a relaxed way as well but firmly holding the side of the mouse.


Now my little finger is weirdly place under my ring finger because my hand is wide and the FK1 narrow, that's why I don't think you could be comfortable with a wider FK1+



Btw apologies for the pics quality

Thanks for the pictures! We seem to have pretty similar grip styles. Do you find yourself accidentally clicking on the right-hand side buttons?

P.S. Sorry for the delay!

I fixed it in five minutes.

I've learned recently when buying these ODM mice, they may require a little modding/adjustment.

Well, at first I was pushing them only when I reacted so fast at shooting and stuff, my hand was tense I guess. Then after a short time of 1 week or so I didn't have this problem anymore, my hand/brain got used to it and adapted very well, it was like I was aware of them without experiencing a change in grip that'd make me feel uncomfortable, maybe the grip modification in that area was so slightly or maybe the way my hand was making much pressure over there changed. Thing is I adapted to it pretty well after a short time

Fk1+ in that case, not Fk1.

Fk1 could work for you since you don't have that wide hands (it definately diden't for me with 19cm/11 cm wide hands). Personally though, i would suggest Fk1+ over Fk1 (better stability, light weigth enough and won't give you hand pain) or Sensei Raw instead of Dm1 Pro S. Personally i do consider the shape of Sensei/Dm1 pro S alot better than the FK models (even fk1+).

I think I'll wait for the G Pro and see how that fits my hand.
