Got my Kova+ this morning and am extremely pleased with it. The grip is ideal for me and that is more important than some ideal of a 'perfect' sensor, I can get used to a mouses quirks if it is comfortable to use for a long gaming session.

It has a nice rubber coating on the sides instead of just on the top, top coating is useless to me as I dont palm a mouse. The side button placement will get a bit of getting used to but I dont see any major problems with it. Only negative I found is that it wont track on my old exactmat where it has worn smooth with age but works fine on the rougher side but that is too grippy so I have ordered a steelseries 4HD, looks like it will sit nicely on the wristrest from the old pad. Liftoff seems fairly high but that is not a problem as I stated in a previous post.

So I guess I have found an ideal mouse for me and cannot recommend it enough for someone who is looking for narrow fingertip grip mouse.

The majority of sensors out there are fine for gaming. You don't need a specific sensor made for "gaming". I mean even the PTE with its lift off issue, isn't all that bad. Just depends if your a low sense player that has to adjust a lot then sure its a problem. But the PTE still has good tracking otherwise. Comes close to the 1800DPI DA.

The most important thing is how comfortable the mouse is for you. You can adjust to whatever sensor by playing with it a lot. The majority of them have some issue.


Thats Guardian, pro CS player using a Mamba. Which most would consider garbage. lol I mean I agree the lift off issue can suck but, you can get used to it and adjust. The tracking it has while on the pad is very good. I myself own a Xai, 1800DPi DA, G9x, and picked up a Mamba (known to have the most ifnerior sensor out of the 4). I find myself using the Mamba the most now, I just find it very comfortable, and I do just as well with any of them.

^^This. If the mouse works for you then use it. Who cares if it has a "crappy" sensor, unless it makes the mouse unusable. I use a microsoft mobile mouse 3000 and I really like it. The only thing I wish it had was more buttons. I've been trying to find the CM Storm Spawn in the US but no luck.

Forgetting about the ****ty sensor, a Mamba is wireless, which means it is remarkably heavy, and it has an identical shape to a Deathadder. I can't think of one single reason why a person would use it over a Deathadder.

I personally don't find it "remarkably heavy." Kind of a funny thing to say, when you figure we are talking about a mouse. lol I agree in regards to I guess a DA, it does have more weight to it. I personally, like the weight it has.

Also if you really look at a mamba up close the grip you have on the sides is different then the DA. The thumb area for example, has this rubber groove that slopes inward, the DA just goes down flat. On the pinky side of the Mamba, you have another rubber coated groove that cuts in-ward. Makes it a bit more narrow at the base. Those slight adjustments make the mouse really comfortable for me.

The overall feel of the mouse seems to be made of higher quality materials. You also notice the base of the Mamba has this thick see-through smoke tinted type plastic. Where the DA base just has that piano gloss plastic.

Then you have the fact that its Wireless. Which I have really started to like a ton. its something you think isn't a big deal. But after you spend sometime with it, its def nice. So basically your getting a DA with a slightly varied shape, wireless, and has more weight. The con you give up is when you lift off, the cursor jumps more then it does with a DA. On pad tracking though, they don't differ all that much.

If you prefer a lighter mouse and want to keep wired then the DA is def one of the top mice around. I feel that with the extra features the mamba has it works great for me on a personal level. However, I will say my 1800DPI DA has the best tracking performance out of any of the mice I own and if I where to play professional gaming, I would go with that. But I just sit at home and play for fun, so I can sacrifice on pure performance and gain in the areas that I see fit. I feel people stress over mouse and keyboard way to much. Unless your getting paid to play the majority of stuff out there is fine. And even in the case where you are a pro, they usually get stuck using products from whoever sponsors them. So it just goes to show, you can make whatever work.

I also use a fingertip grip. Stay away from the Deathadder's glossy sides that slip when you try to lift it unless you're prepared to sandpaper the sides down like I did. I can fingertip this mouse easily, and my hands aren't huge, maybe above average at best. I lift my mouse alot. The Microsoft Intellimouse 1.1a fits your needs however it's 400 dpi, not sure if that's too low for you but the shape is excellent for fingertip grip and has side button on each side.
