Yeah, my middle finger goes off the end of mouse2 and I bend my index finger for mouse1. Palming the EC2 works for me, may not work for everyone.

The EC2 is very nice. Just the glossy sides are a nightmare.

Can i use some steelseries grips for the glossy sides?

THIS! Insanely much this!

The only way palm grip is REMOTELY viable is with VERY low dpi... And even then I'd prefer claw/finger grip...

Only problem i really have with this mouse is that my hands sweat way too much just like with the DA.

EC2 definitely seems more like a palm grip for people with small hands, like mine.

But it has an annoying liftoff issue where your cursor goes weird when it's ~7mm off the pad, so I'm looking for another mouse now.

Going to be getting myself a EC2 come payday, this thread has confirmed that it will fit my grip style (CLAW!!)
Was wondering though how it performs vs the SS Kinzu ?
was tempted by the Kinzu aswel but the extra side buttons and driverless awesomeness of the EC2 is something I just cant ignore.

2 problems this mouse has. One glossy sides. And 2 you cannot disable prediction.

SS Kinzu has large amounts of positive acceleration.

The glossy sides are quite annoying, however I don't find the prediction to be that bad. The mouse wheel is also slightly crappy compared to others. I had one that had some problems with the left click and one of the side mouse buttons. They would double click about half the time when I pressed them, so I sent it back and I hope it's not a common problem.

The one i had never did any of that. I could of sorted out the side buttons but the mouse didnt suit my grip and i wasnt prepared to get an EC2.

Im getting a CM spawn once they sort the FW out.
