How about the VENTUS X Optical RGB? Would that be big enough?.

The rest you have mentioned are too expensive for me .

Worth a try, if you have the possibility to return it easily. Seeing your first post, you really haven't tried some essential mice for your hands, like MS Pro Intellimouse, Zowie EC1, Logitech MX518. See if you can try them or something, it will give you a better idea of what's more comfortable, and to figure out your grip against different mouse ergonomics.

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.

I got very used to my abyssus which is ambidextrous. What are some other solid ambidextrous ones? I didn't realize a)how much I liked that and b) how light of a mouse I needed until I got the m65 for Christmas and really wanted to make it work.

I'm in the exact same boat, between claw & palm & finding a mouse that doesn't quickly fatigue my hand when running & gunning online.

I love these new vertical mice coming out, but their tracking is GARBAGE. Would not game 0/10. 5/10 at best for office use.

definitely gonna test some of the old classic recommendations. I think the last mouse I liked was a the RAT series.

i think i'm gonna try the 602 next.

Trust GXT 144 Rexx is a Vertical Mouse ... OK Trust is more a "cheap" Company but it's equiped with a 20G 100ips Sensor , not good but not bad
maybe a pmw3325 , steps from 5000 to 10000 will be interpolated ...
20G 60ips is pmw3050 if Im correct and the GXT 180 Kusan I own from Trust has 20G 100ips too and has a pmw3325 in it ...
maybe it could be a try

I've got some decently sized mitts and I use a Fnatic Flick 2 and it's pretty damn comfortable.
