[VTZ] CM Storm Spawn Review - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Could be a nice mouse if it's not too heavy.

Allthough I don't need them I find the CPI buttons stupid (as usual) because you can't simply switch between 2 settings, only up, down or cycle.
At least those 2 buttons seem to be fully bindable.

Not sure if the sensor really lets you turn Angle Snapping on/off (not mentioned in the Data Sheet), could be loading 2 different sroms or even MCU based like SteelSeries FreeMove, not that it matters. biggrin.gif

I do.

The point is that people use the grip that fits them best which must not be related to their preferred sensitivity.

Just because I have to move my arm doesn't mean I can't use my wrist/fingers for smaller adjustments.

That doesn't fit to the rest of your post.

I see I see

I used to claw too, but I'm naturally left handed using a right handed setup.. eventually forced myself to palm around 3 years ago, but I'm wondering if I should go back since I hardly play anymore.

Precision: there's a reason you write with your fingers and not your entire arm.

Speed: claw grip utilizes arm movement for rough motor movements (traversing long angles) and finger movements for fine adjustments. Combine these, and you can shift the mouse very quickly and accurately.

Btw using claw grip does not mean you will use a certain sensitivity either, and that would definitely affect your raw aiming speed.

This is all coming from a deathadder/medium sens user who doesn't even use a purely claw grip.
Hey !IF you could , advise me on this claw grip style --- I find that when assaulting ( Cs 1.6 lol , m4/ak) I tend to go claw-ish and when turning massive angles-- 400mm-180Degrees I switch to somewhat of a palm grip . .

This is all on a DA 3.5G ,, had the 3g before.. I see all my friends playing ( seriously high levels) of cs w/ Xai's and w/ claw grips (OBv-- palming a xai isFAIL) and wonder if its time to make the switch --
My settings are : 450dpi = 200Odd degrees to every full sweep of the mousepad ~ 440mm win 6/11 ingame 1.3 (cs1.6 @ 1024x786)

I doubt i could go PURE claw every --- so will the CM Spawn work for me ?
Gonna pick one up the day after 2mrw if u say so Dnt wrry - I'll give it a month or so before I decide to dunk it

BTW, i have a firm grip on the DA sideways but honestly i feel the design always lacked what the imperator has..AND NOT buying raazer again -- blue gives me headaches- glasses :/

What is the point of using the claw grip with a low sensitivity? You take away the advantage it has because it gets to the point that you need to move your arm anyway.

Im moving slowly from a palm to a claw BUT @ low sensi :/ 400 mm to a 180 degree turn :"/

Is that bad
Prolly buying a CM spawn ( claw mouse) in 2 day's time x-I )
So rrly .. is it a step backward? never gonna go high sensi to the point where i'm not moving my arm :/
I came dorn from 10.1 to 1.3 at 450 dpi
Not going back up ... I just though the claw gives a faster reaction response on the actuation of the buttons?
