There was a bit of soreness for the first 3 hours of deathmatch but I was coming from a different mouse using a different grip so that's to be expected. No soreness at all now but I also don't let my fingers float with a tight grip. I let them slide or drag on the mousepad with a sort of loose grip.

I picked one of these up at a local Best Buy (southwest suburbs of Chicago).

Initial impression is extremely good. I'm one of the people who really likes the DA shape, and the last DA I had was a 2013.

Shape: If you like the DA shape, it's the same shape. So, pretty safe for me. I like the soft plastic and rubberized grips, and the DA shape is one of my two favorite ergo shapes along with the IE 3.0.

Cord: Probably the best braided cable I've ever used. Thin and flexible. Definitely superior to Logitech's.

Clicks: left and right click feel satisfying and very consistent between sides. A slightly spongy quality. I like them fine.

Sensor: Feels extremely snappy/responsive, as others have said. I'm curious to know the stats of the 3389 vs. the other 3360/6 variants.

One thing I noticed is that the default LOD is higher than other 3360/6 mice, similar to the previous DA's. This actually surprised me if it's based off of the 3366 architecture, as I thought that was just native to that architecture. If any of the resident mouse experts have thoughts on this I'd be curious to see them.

Nitpicks: Quality control feels good, but the sticker is ever so slightly misplaced on the bottom of the mouse such that the right side just barely overlaps along the ridge for the bottom half. This has zero effect on tracking as it's essentially flush with the bottom of the mouse, with the feet clearly above this. It bothers my OCD, however.

I tried the mouse with and without drivers (without first), which I'm able to do as I default to 800 dpi. Noticed no negative difference whatsoever with Synapse. As others have said, it defaults to 500 hz for some reason. Not a dealbreaker for me, but a little weird.

Actually wish someone would repeat these tests with 4G and 5G Razer mice. Perhaps they optimized it for their newer mice, but forgot to make it work properly with older tech.

How is the coating? Is it the same as the chroma?

I think so? I never actually had the Chroma, as I said previous DA was a 2013.

Hey guys,

So I've been using the Zowie FX (2014 model) for a while now. Mouse is precise and works fine beside the scroll wheel which sometimes simply doesn't register or miss a "click" so I think it's time for a new one.

However I need something bigger than the Zowie. I don't even know what kind of grip I'm using (Fingertip?) but I have large hands and was wondering if the Deathadder would help me cause I get cramps after an hour or so.

Some pics to show you how I'm holding the mouse...

Someone did it with the Abyssus 2016 and said it adds 1-2ms of motion lag. That is not the same sensor, but it is a newer mouse by them.

That mouse is way too tiny for your hands. Deathadder is way bigger than the FK but the shape is hit or miss. Try it at a Best Buy if you're in the U.S.
