I am currently using a "Mototech v8"

I use it with 800DPI and with a "Palm" grip. I am looking for something better. This mouse is extremely comfortable so preferably something with similar design.
I am buying in UK and the price range is up to £60... £80 if really worth it but I would like to save as much money as possible, so the cheaper the better.
I mostly play League of Legends, so that is what the mouse would be used for.

Thanks.

You should check the Roccat Kone Pure Laser (8200DPI):


Or Roccat Kone Pure Optical (4000DPI) - same body, different sensor:

Death Adder 3.5G?
Really cheap, its light and fits in the hand perfectly.
Also it depends what grip you use while gaming

As I said in the original post, I use the "Palm" grip.
Also I am not a fan of all those large amounts of buttons on the mouse, I will not use them.
Those Roccat Kone's you suggested look very nice, I will have a look in to those. What are your opinions on the Roccat Kone XTD? I see it is a bit bigger so would be better for my hand.

I'm not sure these Roccat mice suit palm grips really well since they are quite small. Compare dimensions with your current mouse to have a better idea.

You should also take a look at the G400 / G500 from Logitech, they look rather comfortable!

If the pures are too small, look at the XTD, it's bigger.

Oh sorry was rushing while reading, that's a good reason to get the death adder. The thumb buttons are useful, and if you want you can turn it off completely, I use a palm grip too and I went through 2 mice after the death adder and went back to them.

My current mouse is : L128*W75*D42mm
The Roccat Pure XTD is : L135*W78*D40mm
Razer Deathadder : L127*W70*D44mm
Can't find the dimensions for the Logitechs, however I have seen them before and they do look comfortable indeed, the G500s is on sale on Amazon for only 40GBP so that is good.

What about the Roccat Lua, any good?

I've heard Logitech's mice are pretty decent at £40 it's a steal. To be honest, the mouse is a personal thing. It's like asking someone else to buy you clothes. Only you know what you want.
