I know about the Abyssus. I will check it out but I think its not for me cause I prefer heavier mice. I also use the 2 sidebuttons for internet/win-explorer navigations. If all goes to plan, I will pick up the DA tomorrow cause I really dont like the looks of the G500. M really sorry to say it. And also, I have used the 1800dpi DA before and liked it quite a bit.
My questions now are, should I get the normal DA or DA Black-edition? what are the differences? and are there any major changes in DA v2 from DA v1 ?
The lack of side buttons on the Abyssus is a dealbreaker to me. It's supposed to be a "no-nonsense" mouse, but even the most basic mice have side buttons.

Personally, I find my DA far more comfortable than my G500. Recently I've found the Imperator to be quite comfortable as well, though I prefer the sensor in the DA.

something I just never felt the need for. Plus I find that with the claw grip and resting my forearm on my desk and wrist on the pad I find a lighter mouse is where its at.

Anyways, hope the DA works out for ya!

I just don't know how claw user play FPS

I just cant get a good control of the mouse that way

I need to hold the entire mouse in my hand and feel "secure" all the body of the mouse

It's the same way for claw users. It's almost impossible for them to get a secure palm grip.

I had the G500 and it was good. But I have a Razor mouse now and I love it.

V1-->V2: Pretty much all they did was change out the sensors for a 3500dpi version.

Normal vs Black Edition: Depends on your preference. The differences are pretty straightforward - the normal has a rubber top and slick, glossy sides; the black has a similar top and rubber sides. One thing to note is that the normal has the blue scroll wheel and Razer logo; those don't light up on the black.

i say get a R.A.T 7 if your palm grip...youll love it...it even adjusts to fit your hand and has interchangeable rests on it, along with customizeable weight and 5600DPI....

The deathadder's sleeved cable is pretty tough. must of been a determined cat.

Deathadder for sure, best sensor on the market by far. Just fix the lift off issue with some tape and you're set.

It is not impossible to claw a DA, unless you have baby hands. I do not have big hands but if I wanted to claw grip the deahtadder it would be easy. It is not only for palmers.

I don't see can put the Kinzu into top tier mice either. The shape and weight is close to perfect but they completey ruined the mouse with the sensor. No mouse with those issues will ever be top tier in my book. To each their own..
