Yes my grip is angled with almost every mouse, even with ambidextrous mice. But it doesn't hinder my gameplay. Because human can easily adjust to it.

Get higher speed memory and manage to run your game at 240+FPS with all kinds of v-sync and buffering turned off before you talk about mouse precision.
Memory speed and efficiency is the KEY factor to improve framerates in ALL multiplayer games (eg. OW, WOW, CSGO, LOL, HOTS). CPU frequency or GPU power is NOT.

As others said here it's your grip.

I've linked to the Deathadder post a few times. It's a "problem" with that style of ergo mice personally speaking.

I wonder if at any point in the Logitech design process they tried to analyze the moment of inertia tensor to see if the sensor is aligned with the shape's principle axes. If not, the sensor can technically be misaligned to how the shape tends to move.

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

I have that same grip with almost all ergo mice. It's just what's most comfortable. My brain just adjusts how to move the mouse to compensate I guess because I have no problem with straight lines.

After a calibration on the surface here I can make straight lines, no problem. With that said, I don't like to where they point the sensor, you really have to play a bit to get used to it. I prefer the G Pro.

If I hold the G403 in the most comfortable way the sensor will be slightly misaligned in my hand. If I hold it with the senor aligned I start to want to use another mouse. I sent the mouse back because the shape wasn't good for me -- I was always fighting to get comfortable while maintaining control.

The Pro was fine as it's a symmetrical shape. Main reason I continue to use symmetrical mice.

Welcome to having a fingertip grip. Either get a mouse that accommodates it (G502, Naos...), or get used to having to compensate for the angle.

The problem with G403 is that the sensor is angled in the wrong direction for how many hold ergo mice... even worse than a normal mouse with a straight sensor. Another reason I gave up on it.

Ring finger on the right click button? Okay, I'll try it.
