Hi,
I had deathadder black for almost 8 months and then it start doing double clicks from a single click so I sent it back and now I am looking for another one. the deathadder was really very good help reduce pain in my wrist from long game sessions and also I noticed my aim improved in FPS games over others I tried before.

I see that there is now new edition called deathadder 2013 but I heard that the double click problem is common in razer mice so do you think they fixed this problem in the new edition ? or should I look for something else ?

Notes:
- old mice I tried are Cyborg Rat 7 and Tt Black but both cause pain in my wrist
- I like big palm grip mice only.
- Games I play are RTS and FPS only.

Thanks for your help

Not sure on your price range but I was coming from a MX518 and I absolutely love my new Roccat Kone XTD.
Another one that seems to be great and surely looks very comfortable is the Naos 8200.

Regards

I thought that the DeathAdder 2013 had had a spinning bug until Razer had released the firmware update that addressed it.
What are the problems with it?

Spinning issue has been resolved with latest firmware update, I dont know of any other major flaws at the moment.
So Makav3li what are the other issues?

No spinning problems on mine and I didn't do the firmware update so it's probably installed on new batches. The buttons do feel better than that of my old DA 3500 but it's too early to tell if I'll get a double click issue. Never bought the Black Edition so I can't compare it. I have been pretty hard on the mouse since I took it out of the box as some games make extreme use of the main buttons along with my usual constant clicking through saved sites.

When I bought BE I message Razer and they replay BE is basically the 3500 but without lighting so from the info you provide I think buttons feel of 2013 will be also better than BE.

Buy a Zowie EC 1 eVo. Almost the same shape as the deathadder (but more comfortable if you ask me), and it weights about 10% less = less strain on the wrist. Also, the side-buttons have a much better placement, I can't use the deathadder without touching the buttons with my thumb.

If you read around on the forums you'll notice people complaining about a "smoothing" feature. The dpi steps they implemented on the new version are probably interpolated so they could win the pointless optical dpi crown. I would stick with the lower native dpi on the old version. That's just my opinion.

Thank you! I see that in bst's gaming mouse thread.

I'm hoping that this will be addressed by Razer because I wanted a D.A. 4G:

was hoping to get DA 2013 because I read on the forum here a review said they upgrade the switches so no double click issues which is good because I am on the move so RMA is very difficult.

To be fair, the DA is more of a middle weight mouse, there are much heavier mice out there. And although I agree that light mice are better in general the DA was always fine for me. It's in the "ok" class in terms of weight IMO.
