You might want to change the mouse in your signature system.

We'll always welcome you back when you get a new one.

I haven't had any tracking issues with my RAT7 that weren't directly related to either an off-center glide pad or dust. The glide pad ring around the laser aperture is occasionally put on slightly off-center, covering part of the hole. If this is the case, carefully removing and re-seating clears up the problem. Dust, especially lint, is a problem as well. You'll need to keep your mousing surface clean, and occasionally blow some fuzzies away from the laser.

I use a palm grip most of the time (I alternate between palm and claw grip, depending on what I'm doing). I have the palm rest extended out as far as it will go; and it still feels rock solid. The tolerances are pretty tight, and the construction is good, so you shouldn't have any issues. (In fact, the tolerances are so tight that replacing the palm rest with one of the alternatives can be a little tricky; but that's not a real problem. I replaced the default palm rest with the textured rubber one, and it feels very comfortable.)

One caveat, prepare to spend at least a week, possibly two, trying out the various optional bits and adjustments before you find a combination that is comfortable for you. It took me about a week and a half of adjusting the various bits before I became really comfortable with it. Most people who find it uncomfortable simply haven't spent enough time tweaking it (although there are a few who it simply won't work for). It helps greatly to think of it as a three-button mouse, instead of the more common two-button style. Use your middle finger on the scroll wheel (which also acts as a button), and your ring finger on the right button. I have quite large hands and long fingers, and it still felt too wide for me until I started doing this.

@defiler: Do they indicate on the box if it's a refreshed version of the rat 7? Maybe like a Rat 7 V2 name or something. I'm really really thinking of getting one, and I don't want to get a rat 7 that has some sort of tracking issues.

@luchog: nice tips on making it work continuously great! I'll take note of that just in case I get a rat of my own.

Thanks for the suggestions guys! Really helpful

That's because I picked my R.A.T. 3 up for £35.00 new and I was not going to turn that down had been looking at getting some kind of R.A.T. for about 6/7 months.
