The Zowie FK2 has served me very well for about 5 years now with zero indication of wear. The closest I've gotten to a replacement is the Steelseries Rival 110 but I didn't like the hard plastic sides or side buttons, but this is subjective. This is after trying just about Logitech and Steelseries mouse available.

A FK1(medium)/FK2(small) or Rival 110(medium) may work well for you. As @Klopfer mentioned the Ventus X looks good, I've been tempted to try the Ventus R model in the past since I prefer ambidextrous mice.
+1 for the Zowie FK here. I bought the FK1 but it was too big. I changed it for the FK2 and it was perfect for me. I used the original Razer Diamondback for a very long time and that was a small fingertip mouse and the FK2 comes very close. I found it even more comfortable to play with.

I've been using mine for the past 3.5 years now without any issues.
