And the scroll wheel. Oh the scroll wheel.

I had to look at the position of my hand to figure out that even though the contour of the mouse is naturally fitting to my hand, the (G7,G5) forward buttons positioned a bit of distance from the already long backside of the mouse causing me to angle the mouse so that I could comfortably place my thumb directly over/under those buttons instead of just the tip of my thumb. For me, this only occurs using a palm grip and took a mental reminder to hold my hand a specific way to avoid this. Over came this in less than an hours time of use...now everything feels natural.

Hmm, I'm thinking it must be because I came from using the MX1000 to the G700, that I hold the mouse right

Oh, and I swapped out the battery for a 2,650mAh one
Although I did read some bloke saying he hadn't needed to charge his mouse for weeks
So he's obviously playing games in power save mode!
Because all I get with the mouse polling at 1,000 p/s and on full gaming mode is 10 hours or so
Not that it's a problem though, as you can charge and use the mouse with the cable
Although I did have to do a mod for the cable. Because of not having a wired mouse for about ten years. And I could feel it!


Here it is next to the MX1000 it replaced

I noticed this same exact issue.

I soon realized it was because there was no cord tethering the mouse to force your hand to keep it centered on axis. I watched my hand motion and I was rotating the mouse while moving it left and right kind of like opening a large pickle jar. But even if you do move it exactly horizontal, if it is slightly off kilter, the pointer will go diagonally. Just got to retrain the old brain to compensate for it I guess.
