Fingertip grip? abyssus or Orochi or...? - Page 2

All three will function best on a hard pad. The Abyssus would likely suffer from jitter on cloth, while the G9x and Xai will have more inherent positive acceleration if not used on a hard surface.

Of the three the Xai is definitely my favorite, although the Abyssus is pretty close. The G9x wasn't bad, I just hated the scroll wheel and the balance of the weight (its pretty heavy for its size, even without the extra weights)

If you ever want to reprogram the buttons, the G9x is the way to go. The Xai can do it too but Logitech is lightyears ahead of SteelSeries in that regard.

I'm going to be honest with you.

I don't require buttons that can be changed. Or anything special on a mouse. I just want a mouse with excellent left/right buttons....a good scroll wheel and a laser which is very precise smile.gif

the G9x has an adjustable scroll wheel you can either use a ratcheting scroll or a smooth scroll.

I prefer the ratcheting scroll and I have no problems with it.

I'm using an Abyssus, It's far better than anything I've ever used and I find it very comfortable. (And yes I did use a G9x)

A majority (if not all) of them are loaded with the original default SROM and jitter on almost anything cloth :[

Shame, would be the perfect fingertip/claw mouse considering the weight and shape.

The amount of precision you have is based on screen resolution and sensitivity.

Optical tracking tends to be more precise as long as you don't require insane amounts of CPI/DPI.

I'm using a 1920x1080 resolution at the moment.

Hmm, I'm using a small CM Storm mouse surface and it feels pretty accurate, I've never really felt any stuttering or jittering. But I might just not be paying enough attention.

if you use a hard surface then you should love the Abyssus

hyper scrolling was developed for office productivity, not gaming, its garbage for traditional gaming scenarios. The ratchet mode is ok but its definitely far from ideal. The worst part about the wheel is its middle mouse click requires an order of magnitude more force to register. I had to reprogram the left and right scroll function to mirror it to make the mouse passable in that regard.

I think the new Cooler Master Spawn is a good option for fingertip

seems like its more intended for claw grip, but it certainly looks interesting. I love the simplicity of the design as well as the materials - matte plastic and rubber grip sides

the DPI buttons look solid as well and is a feature lacking in most small form-factor / budget-oriented mice

I hate how they try to rice it out with the "SPAWN" label on the side, totally unnecessary (I can forgive the small CM Storm label and logo), it was that close to having an efficient and cleanly professional look to it.
