Default What mouse do you use?

Hello, I am looking to get a new gaming mouse. What do you all use??

I use fingertip grip so looking for light weight and smaller mouse. Deathadder is no good as I went thru 3 of them.. Clickers and scroll wheel both become unusable with double-click issues. DA is also not designed for fingertip. Before DA, I had diamondback.. Great mouse but both clickers kept double clicking there too. I am done with razer and their shoddy build quality

Mice I am considering:
Logitech G100s
Logitech G402
Logitech G502
Roccat kone
Zowie fk1

Any suggestions??

Default Re: What mouse do you use?

I'm a clawgrip, mx518's were the best mice ever for my hands. Because they're long gone, with the g400x in lesser quality, the dilemma has sent me on a mouse buying spree over the last few years. The Roccat Pure has been the best for my hands and input response has been awesome since the legendary mx518. But I'm still left without a go-to replacement.
There is a wheel issue with the Roccat's, including the Kone and Pure. This is the main reason why I can't suggest either, unless you are very light with wheel-use.
The Zowie's construction and Steelseries are somewhat similar, both good, more center balanced. The Wheels are nice, the pads are nice, and the weight is good. Lag issues exist with both with was my dealbreaker. Steelseries uses a better USB cable, while Zowie fk1's have nicer sensitivity. Neither are terribly durable.

So now I use a Mx510 upper shell from 2002 with the base and switches off the Roccat Pure and the cable and wheel off the Steelseries. It's amazing how interchangeable some parts are, while others just required some trial and error with the 3D printer. I'm not picky about mice because of gaming, but because I do a lot of design and cad work (so I don't expect other to have a 3D printer, nor know how to use one properly).

Of all the mice you suggested, all of them are about the same and you're left deciding on comfort. If you use your right hand and never switch to your left, I would get rid of the ambidextrous mice.


And just FYI, most mice switches are the same or same design. If the switches are doubleclicking or not clicking consistently, just clean the mouse. You likely got dust and armhairs inside the mechanism. Use a can of air, and blow through the mousewheel opening. It might save you a purchase.

I use a Razer. It really depends on what kind of games you want to use it for and how big your hands are.

Good advise.

1) You pretty much helped eliminate ROCCAT and fk1. I need good mouse wheel as I scroll a lot and want durability. Razer DA lacks both.

2) If you don't mind me asking, which 3D printer do you use? I was looking at resin and ABS ones just for fun. Are they worth it for starting a business?

3) I tried cleaning my DA with electronic cleaner and compressed air after opening it up completely. Fixed it for a month but the issue has come right back. I no longer trust razer mice.

As far as the G100s, G402, and G502 goes.. Have you tried any of them? I know Logitech has very good warranty and not as shoddy build quality as Razer mice.

DeuceWallace. I want a mouse for some FPS and general computing. I have average size hands... If it helps you, Deathadder feels bit heavy and large for my fingertip grip. I would say any mouse smaller than DA works

Default Re: What mouse do you use?

I play MMO's and Battlefield; I use a Naga. Got the warranty but never had any problems that some people complain about. Feels a little small, but there were no other 12 side button mice at the time. I probably would have gotten a G600 but they weren't made until at least 2 years after I got this and people have just as many complaints about them.

There's little chance you could use this more than I do, and it's held up.

You do a claw grip? Then picking mouse becomes easy. It comes down to the type of game you play. From your list I think Roccat kone and Zowie fk1 are your best bet for general gaming. The Logitech ones are not comfortable for claw/finger-tip grips.

Razer makes great mice for general claw-grippers too, and they would get my vote. I recommend the Naga if you're an MMO guy, or the DeathAdder for other general gaming.

How is G600 for FPS and finger-tip grip? I see it has braided cable. Good price and warranty too.. hmm, I won't use the macro keys though..

I got the G502 and I'd definitely recommend it.

Been using this for 5+ years now, they don't make the mx518 anymore. Had to open it a few times to clean it out.

Razer Deathadder seems to be the right choice for you.
