Good mouse with sensor in the FRONT?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I need a small, lightweight mouse with the sensor being DIRECTLY under my fingertips if I play with claw grip. Most mice have the sensor in the middle of the mouse which means when I claw the mouse the sensor will be "behind" my fingers, more towards my palm area.

I can solve this by gripping the mouse more towards the back but then I can't shoot because no mouse has the click buttons this far back on the mouse. And also its very uncomfortable.

Doesn't exist. The closest thing I've used is the Zealot Jr., which checks the boxes of being a lightweight ambi mouse that's actually "designed" for fingertip. It has a standard sensor position, but the clicks are light and can easily be actuated further back.

I'm lazy. Is the sensor good? Optical? Is the sensor as good as the sensor on the new Zowie mice? I like that sensor. I also like low lift off distance.

Revel sensor is a bit more forward but nothing like the G500. That is heavy so your options are slim to none for decent new releases.

I've had the G500. Very comfortable mouse to palm but sucks **** for serious gaming.

There aren't really that many mice with such a sensor position. Mad Catz RAT 1 is the only mouse with a relatively high sensor position that comes to my mind right now. It has a very wonky shell otherwise though.

It's ok if the sensor is in the middle but then I must be able to comfortably grab the mouse claw grip and have the sensor right under my fingers.

3090, decent sensor but LOD is high compared to newer ones.

I thought I was the only one with this problem. I usually hold my mouse around the rear because aiming feels more natural with the sensor further up. I also feel I can move and do swipes and twitch shots faster and better this way.

LOD can be manually lowered by just adding multiple layers of teflon tape or gliders on top of each other, right?

I too thought I was very alone about thinking this way. If you start to investigate in how to improve your aim this is probably one of the first things you will notice. Most people don't care about investigating the roots of how aiming really works. They just put their hand on the mouse and if it is comfortable they think everything's good and they will try to improve their aim by playing DM and other gamemodes for aim improvement. But it's not enough.

It's a sensor that you move, okay. How should I grip it? Well, probably with your fingertips as those are the most accurate part of your body that can do very fine adjustments. Where should I place my fingers? Probably as close to the sensor as possible. I even went so far that I glued a pencil exactly on top of the sensor of a DA and the idea was to hold the pencil, shoot with the S key on the keyboard or some other key (I never had time to test this). Everything failed because the mouse stopped working after I glued the damn pencil to it... Actually the mouse works but the sensor is completely dead. No I didn't put glue on the sensor, I'm not a ******* retard. I think the hot glue might have burned some components which made the sensor die. Not sure though.
