Fingertip Grip Mice.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I play rts games competetively and i move along the y axis with my finers so the mouse has to be short enough, unfortunately Roccat has long forsaken the pyra and i can't find it cheap or anything like it. Can you guys suggest anything? I'm gonna pick up a xornet 2, maybe a katar and g102 when it's out, but they all look a little to big rolleyes.gif hands are 17.5cm .If anyone one has a collection of small mice pictures to show how they compare would help biggrin.gif

Also i want to keep this thread updated in the future(for any new mice i try) hopefully reps see this and logitech etc. acknowledge a starving market.

Roccat Lua is finger tip style mouse, good sensor and wheel. Very tiny. I wanted to like the mouse but it was too flat for me but I am not a pure fingertip person. thumb.gif You can even get these for $15 new on eBay if you hunt or are patient.

Agreed. The Lua is tiny. It uses an ALPS encoder and the wheel feels great but my copy had a lot of noise when scrolling up. Left and right clicks felt a bit mushy, though, but middle click and the CPI changer were great.

Zowie MiCO still the best to me. Considering that 3366 pcb can be mounted pretty much on any chassis due to its size, if you could acquire a MiCO shell and experiment with modding it, it'll definitely be the best mouse you'd ever have if you succeed.

I for one who uses an RTS fingertip grip am currently satisfied with the shape of the G Pro. Even though it is still longer than optimal, it didn't matter as much thanks to the shape of the hump. You will be holding the mouse slightly further back than you normally would for a mouse of that length.

if only i could find a mico, i think ill get a clone from china like the team wolf rts mouse etc. I tried putting my g303 pcb into a smaller mouse called the tech air (cheap mass produced trash) but it was too small biggrin.gif

I would try the Logitech "small mouse" G100s/G Pro shape. I find that when fingertip gripping the mouse, I hold my outside fingers on the balance point of the mouse where it neither tips forward or backwards. On the G100s (mine has the weight removed), this is slightly behind the sensitivity button, so there is only about 6 cm of mouse behind your fingers to interfere with your fingertip grip. I would never call the G100s is too long or tall.

Lately I have also been liking the FK2 for fingertip grip, however I would say that it has a longer backside which is compensated for by having a flat back instead of a bubble shaped back.

Might not be the best comparison though because my hands are about 18.5-19 cm.

Here are some photos to confirm that small mice are in fact small. Sorry I don't have a Katar for comparison. I have aligned the backs of each of the mice in the first pic. Keep in mind that you don't hold the front of the mouse, and look how far back the G100s scroll wheel is compared to the others. Left to right in each is the Logitech G400, Logitech G100s, Zowie FK2 and Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0.
