Actually, the total opposite is much more likely to be true (at least if we're talking raw physics). In both of the scenarios you described, (less) inertia would favor the lighter object.

"To give the gamer more control and command over so much power there is some sort of a smoothing agent incorporated on the mouse chip that gives that different feel, that edge, that authority over your shots."

78 vs 13 votes should say the same.

When I use a less than 80g mouse on my Shiden Kai I have a little snap back when I try to stop after a flick. It doesn't happen as easily with a 80g mouse and it almost doesn't happen with a 85g mouse. For me, horizontal stability feels easier with the 85g mouse.

I think the horizontal stability could be fixed with symmetrical circular mouse feet and a lighter cable. The snap back can be decreased with training or a higher friction mouse pad.

maybe its because i grew up with heavier mice like mx518, DA etc. but its exactly as i described for me.

when i tried mice like the abyssus, i could flick around like crazy and had better reflexes due to less muscle usage but when it came to small movement corrections i prefer a heavier mouse anytime.

with super light mice i just feel like i need a much better muscle memory and have to pay more attention for small movements than i need on a heavy mouse, which ends up in me drawing more focus on my mouse-movement than i should be doing. may sound weird but thats what i experience

I'm going to take this as cryptic to a yes on 3360 sensor if your one of us. You got a good debate on weight started with the poll.

Please make it 70 grams.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the comfort of a Logitech shape, is inversely proportional to the R&D put into its making.

My Zowie Ec1 evo CL which is 97g. Where does that land under? I also have a DM1 Pro I use 87-88, so 85 -99 for me?

We are going to assume those two choices in the poll have something to do with the specifications of the mouse in production that can be changed to be either / or but not other variations of weights.

too busy to check forums as regularly
pm me if i forget to respond

Well, yeah, depends on a few factors regardless(or especially in regards) of the individual, higher weight but more "contact area"  can give more stability/better control and vice versa, one of the reasons why i tend to like the Edge despite its moderately heavy weight. What makes shaking after a flick imo worse are different shaped feet in the front and back, especially if the back has more drag.

It depends on what the product is and who it is for.
