I used some Microsoft optical mouse for a while and then jumped on the RAT5. First one lasted a few years and this current one lasted 1 year and now occasionally the mouse cant do both X/Y planes.

Ive a tried a couple of mice maybe a couple of years ago and really didnt like anything besides the RAT5.

Is there anything in the market that feels like a RAT5? I really dont need much in terms of feature set besides maybe adjustable DPI and front / back buttons

Would like to keep the budget at 50 or under

Thanks guys

What is your cm/360? If you don't know use mouse-sensitivity.com
Also your hand size?
Drivers or no drivers?

I have no idea what that even is, or how to fulfill that information. As no game I play is within that list for conversion. I click on anything and it wants a subscription.

I don't have any tools to measure my hand.

And really doesn't matter driver or not

After looking around, I have determined that I am a claw type user

Lastly I do not support Razer products

Some suggestions for a claw type user and ill go from there, thanks!

I use a claw grip and the Logitech G502 Proteus Core. Love this mouse. If you live near a Best Buy, they usually have one out to test on display. They can be found for $55-60 on sale if you're patient.

I saw that one, it looked like a candidate for claw but the mouse is angled instead of flat like the RAT5

Was there a learning curve on it? Ive been using RAT5 since 2009 maybe? lol

I have used the Rat 5, 7 and a few different logitechs since than. I now use a 502 and like it a lot, not sure what you mean by a learning curve as it is a mouse for the most part it's button in the same place as others. The wheel is a bit odd with the free spin and notchy when spinning. It's DPI is stupidly high.

When you look at the mouse from the front/center, it looks as the right click sits lower than the right, which is what I meant.

Im not used to mouse shopping, sorry lol

Thanks, but no thanks
Mionix makes another version of that mouse with a lower DPI sensor that's cheaper. I've got their 7000 DPI model, I think I paid $90 for it. They also have a 3200 dpi for about 60. It's a really good mouse if you want to go a bit over budget. I love mine.

Your right its cheaper and I dont think I ever really set my DPI super high anyways

Though I also dont like design of the right half of the mouse. I claw the right and left ends of the mouse too if that makes any sense.

I know what you mean. Mouse shopping online would be a pain because the grip is so suggestive. The only reason I got this one was that I found it at Frys and was able to try it out.

I could always just get another RAT5 but I'd like to try something else for a change lol

It works well when it works, but lately its losing either X or Y planes and that kind of kills the mouse.

Angled, EC2-A although the CM-Storm Spawn would be more similiar. The G303 is nice if you like the shape. Finalmouse is nice if you can get one in stock. I agree with you, not buying Razer

By CM/360, I meant how many centimetres do you move on your desk to do a 360 turn in game.

MIONIX has a great rubbery grip and several models like you say software kicks ass but has not changed much since begin reminds me of oakley grips
ihave to mention the original logitech G9 Classic claw mouse

Final Mouse is the only thing that comes close to what I desire in form factor.

Never though I would miss the Microsoft Optical white/red mouse from walmart...

Was it the Intellimouse optical 1.1a, WMO or IE3.0? If it was the IO 1.1 then you're in luck because the Zowie Za12 is the exact same shape.

Its been some time, but the one that strikes me with the most familiarity is the WMO. I remember I used to hate the mouse because it didnt have forward/back buttons on the mouse
