Can't palm any mouse

Hey,

I can't palm any of the mice i have. It always gets uncomfortable in the phalange/metacarpus area because of the mouse hump. This zone:

So i end up using fingertrip in windows and something like this ingame (this isnt my photo) so it doesn't touch.

My hand size is 19'5x9.

and the mouses that i have and tried: Razer Deathadder, CM Alcor, Razer Abyssus and Sharkoon Fireglider.

Any ideas?

The Abyssus didn't work for you?

Check out the CM "Xornet II". It's a really strange shape and very short and I remember I thought the mouse was unusually flat. I don't know if it's still sold.

You could try to find a really small mouse so that only fingertip grip works. There are a clones of the "Logitech Mini" shape from Chinese and Korean brands, but I don't know what names to search for and where to get them.

Im using the Abyssus at the momment. Great for web broswing, but makes my fingers clenched when playing, i guess because of tension when claw gripping. So im not sure of using this smaller mouse.

It's the very first Abyssus, so the dimensions are smaller than the Abyssus released after.



Checked the CM Xornet II, but the thread here in OCN didn't had good opinions about this mouse:

You have some big hands man. Have you tried looking at the new MX518 or G400 series from logitech? They usually work well with palm grips.

I have similar hands and I just claw everything.
I actually claw with my wrist on the pad so that I can rest the part of the hand shown in your picture.
Deathadders are unusable for me because of the hump location, the only mouse I can palm is the Intellimouse 3.0, you should try the new one.
Anyway I find it faster to click with the harder point of the finger rather than the softer digit pads.

You need something like the MX518 to force a palm grip...

I have been a long time claw gripper. I had the abyssus for years, probably 6, and claw on a narrow mouse is the way to go for me. I tried that corsair m65 recently but gotdang it was not working for me and I wanted to like it so bad! Ended up going with a harpoon wired, and its been great for claw grip. FPS, browsing, you name it. I like it a lot.

I have fairly big hands and so far the only mouse that is comfortable to me is the Mionix Naos. It is a simple mouse, wired and kinda light.
