Do your fingers touch your mousepad?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
As title. If so, are you're doing it out of habit or is there a particular reason for it?

Personally I do everything in my power not to touch the mousepad with my fingers since I feel that they severely limit my movement. That is also the reason why I cannot use shapes that force me to hold my fingers weirdly in order to keep them off the pad. I'd be really interested how others handle this though.

My fingers never touch the pad, my wrist does

Yes, in both claw and palm my fingers touch the mousepad. I feel like it helps with controlling the movement of the mouse and being able to accurately stop and make micro adjustments.

In palm both my pinky and ringfinger touch the pad. In claw mostly only my ringfinger.

But that differs from person to person. Do whatever you feel like you benefit from the most.

For example , my flicks in palmgrip are on point but i am able to track much more accurately in clawgrip. So i keep switching it up (depending on the pace of the game), while others would argue that it hurts consistency.

Whatever floats your boat and get's you across the river.

My wrist, the heel of my hand, the side of my thumb, and the tip of my pinky finger touch the pad. My old hands aren't steady enough anymore to allow me to accurately control the mouse any other way. I clean and wax the pad with furniture polish roughly once a week (it's an el cheapo plastic pad I replace two or three times a year).

I let my fingers and palm touch the pad to increase my control/stability when necessary. When I swipe I don't let my hand touch the mouse pad. I used to have my hand only touching the mouse when I used the DeathAdder and EC1, but I went back to my normal style because having my hand on top of the mouse only puts too much pressure on the mouse pad. I rather have faster movement and nimble control instead of consistently straight lines. Also, I don't waste my mouse feet as quickly and my mouse pad doesn't get as worn.

^damn daniel.

My ring and pinky touch but not my thumb. I hold my hand at an angle so my thumb sits "high" on the left side. This is why I prefer no side-buttons. I'm a FT gripper so I move my mouse in a similar fashion, but I went back to low sens so pivot from the elbow for larger movements.

My thumb, ring finger and pinky touch the pad pretty much with every mouse I use.
