Replacing Mamba - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I would stay away from Razer or Logitech. All the Logitech mice I had over the past years felt like crap (in terms of build quality).

Recently I bought a Steelserise Xai and I was very much impressed by the build quality. A Xai and a decent hard pad is amazing, the mouse slides around like it was on air.

You can also take a look at the Ikari Optical or the Ikari Lazer which are also nice mice with different ergonomics.

The only razer mouse I would consider would probably be the Deathadder because of its low price tag compared to others.

Also don't listen to those stupid razer grip diagrams. I went from a palm grip with my G5 to a Finger grip on my Xai and even now I use different grips for different games. The best mouse is the mouse you are used to and any time you buy a new mouse you will have to get used to it all over again. Just look for a mouse with high build quality and a decent price.

Now that I forced myself to learn all the grips, I can play with each one, but I could not before. I used to do fingertip only. PERIOD. I couldn't handle any other grip at ALL. Some people are used to their favourite grip and giving that up is difficult.

Ya I don't mean to say people don't use those grips just that its not that big of a deal to learn a new grip, depending on the mouse you might prefer a different grip than another one.

The main reason I like the shape of my Xai is that it doesn't force me into any one grip. I can just as easily finger grip it when I play SC2 or palm grip it when I'm playing bad company 2 or another shooter.

Well it's not exactly like that. Although I can do every grip, fingertip grip is by far the best one for me. Even though my mouse does all of them as well. Maybe even fingertip grip the worst. (Imperator)

However, it is the style I have used since I was 6. I am a fair bit older now and fingertip grip is deeply ingrained in my gaming. Everything else feels unnatural, although I can do on them fine.

ok, I would have to say I am a claw gripper and with the Mamba being a palm gripper explains the incompatibility.

I think if the mamba/deathadder is too small, then the Imperator would be perfect for you.

the g700 has the worst battery life ive ever seen. it pretty much is a corded mouse that you can use for a few hours without the cord. on top of that the body feels and looks cheap as hell.....costs way too much for what you get imo.
