I play all kinds of games. I'm not a single game type of person. That said, even in shooters I like tight quick movement. Basically, I never want to need to lift my mouse. It's the way I have been playing since the first high DPI mice came out. I am just not comfortable at all with big movements. It just does not feel right to me at all. If I am not at or near the top in a game I am well practiced at, it's not the fault of my mouse. I am just playing like crap. lol Or flat out skilled.

well for PC games I have two types of mice, one is a track ball style mouse that I use on RPG games, or slow paced games.
for all hack n slash, FPS, 3rdperson shooters, and all other fast paced games, I use a RAT 9 mouse. it is wireless, and has flawless response. it is a little higher than your price range though, at around $100.

Get a mouse with large housing. I thought I had small hands so I got the FK2 - I felt like I had less precise control and would angle my wrist more when turning - that's bad for accuracy.

I loved my FK2 because it was from the era where Zowie's QC was fantastic and they were producing great quality products. Now that they're owned by BenQ, I've seen changes in the quality of some of their mice.

Having recieved an EC series mouse that wasn't up to scratch due to a mouse wheel rattle, I was hesitant to recommend Zowie to my friends. However, on switching to the FK1+, I've changed my mind again. I received a good quality product, and due to the larger size of the mouse, my aim and comfort has improved.

There's several reasons why I'd suggest Zowie - they only sell mice with good sensors, they're driverless so you don't have to worry about driver versioning bull**** potentially introducing poor mouse behaviour (and they've been quick to correct firmware issues), or worry about downloading loads of crap if you ever attend non-BYOC LANs (compare that against 1hr tech pauses because a pro couldn't download the version of Razer Synapse he wanted). Their branding and frills aren't overstated like a lot of other products too. You get a nice mouse with a nice finish, high quality switches, high quality sensors with good implementation, and that's it. You really can't go wrong with their products outside of potential QC issues which I've found have improved again recently.

I still swear by my Zowie mousepad too, the G-SR, not sure if they still sell it.

As for this argument about gaming mice being some sort of placebo, and that people were capable of being competitive in the past, you have to remember that most people WERE using good mice at the time, such as the WMO, that still held the title of one of the best mice until relatively recently, and which now can't be used on the ESEA platform due to test mode incompatibility iirc. The thing about sensors isn't performance, really, either - a mouse that's 1:1 60% of the time will still allow you to perform at the highest level 60% of the time, so you'll still get great clips. Its the other 40% of the time that you'll lose out because you have a poor sensor. New sensors are all about precision COMBINED with reliability. Precise, reliable sensors with good implementations in good housing with good switches is definitely the way to go, and that's why I always recommend Zowie.

Do yourself a favor and buy a mousepad. Also just to let others know his sens seems to be at around 62cm/360 in Warface.

I would suggest you to try out these,


- EC-2A - picky with some surfaces

- FK2 - picky with some surfaces

- G403

- Ninox Venator Black - not as expensive as the others, yet still amazing performance, so you will have some money leftover for a mousepad.

- Nixeus Revel - not as expensive as the others, yet still amazing performance, so you will have some money leftover for a mousepad.

- Roccat Kone Pure Owl Eye (this one might be a perfect match or it doesn't work at all.)

- Razer Abyssus V2 - No Thumb buttons - picky with some surfaces

- ZA-12/13 - picky with some surfaces


If you plan on not getting a mousepad then i would avoid the Abyssus and the Zowie mice ,as it can be the case that they are not compatible with your surface. The rest should work just fine.

Look them up online to see if there are some shapes or things you dislike. Order them on Amazon and return the ones you don't like or ideally try them at a local shop if possible.

Seconding the Revel here:
Best sensor, nice coating, very neutral shape and size and adequate buttons, scroll and cord. A good price tag and covering a broad range of DPI settings and grips.

Should be the #1 for anyone not sure about their micing preferences. Still my favourite as well out of my 6 3360 mice.

I am checking Revel mouse and honestly I am liking Zowie EC2-A also (something about shape is so good IMO). Checking also some mouse pads. Zowie GSR SE I can buy from shop in my country (the blue one). In my country it is around 30 euros. I never payed mouse pad that much but I am considering it. Now it is desk surface only, before I had some cheap small mouse pads, but I need XL mouse pad for my low sensitivity play. If I decide for EC2-A mouse, I think it will need mouse pad to track good as James N said up.

I appreciate that you took time to read and respond. Thanks.
