I have a G5 right now I like it great build quality, nice dpi, awesome feel, but I don't like using palm grip. I can use palm grip but i prefer fingertip. It's very hard with this mouse though (if you have it or the mx518 or G500 you probably know what I mean).

What mice are good for fingertip? I'm open to any brand. I'm really interested in razor mice. I would like it to have a high dpi at least 2000 but more would be better.

Any suggestions?

I felt the same way when I had my old MX 1000 and hated palm grip too. I bought a Razer Diamondback 3G and my hand couldn't be happier.

finger mice from Razer:

Abyssus

Spectre

TRON

The Orochi is another option but I wouldn't recommend you consider that mouse unless you really might use the wireless functionality from time to time.

There's also the discontinued Salmosa, Diamondback 3G and Copperhead that you might still be able to find, although both are old enough that they might not meet your demands.


The Abyssus was my favorite finger mouse for the longest time but I've since moved on to a SteelSeries Xai and absolutely love it. Although I'm definitely eyeballing the Spectre and especially the TRON mouse, I don't really care for the SC2 branding on the Spectre though.

Some things to add. It has to have at least two thumb buttons like the g5 and the on the fly dpi is a must! Those mice don't really spark an interest.

I think the lachesis may be more up my alley. Anything more like that?

I'm not a WoW player... Nor do I play any game that would require 12 thumb buttons.

My Lachesis experience wasn't the best, it felt too awkward for my strict finger grip.

The Imperator's ergonomics should be flexible enough for a finger grip but it wasn't made specifically for finger grip like the other models I pointed out.

It's too bad you didn't post this sooner, the Steelseries Xai was on sale for $50 over black friday weekend and would be right up your alley.

I actually use my G500 primarily with a "finger tip" grip. I like it because it gives a wider area so my fingers dont get cramped while playing like they do with smaller mice.
