    thanks for the info man, ive tried a few surfaces already its defo the mouse, atm im stuck between a zowie ec2, mionix naos 5000, razer deathadder and the Logitech G9x :thumb:

    yes i did have a look at that mouse it looks quite comfortable :)

    Definitely considering the Mionix Naos 5000. Do you personally use one ?

    comfortable and precise? good for graphic work and gaming? :)

    Have thought about it, what do you think? Do you personally use one?

    Tablet as in a Wacom 'graphics pad' as people call them these days? if thats what you mean I have several I use daily.

    My plastic rat 3 was about 100 times better than that rat 7 I received. Also strongly considering this mouse.

    Have tried several :/

    Awesome!

    I'm just wondering, would you prefer a small mouse?

    And linked to that, do you use a fingertip grip?

    well I guess the rat 3 is a happy medium sized mouse? and I am a Palm-Claw hybrid if that makes sense :/ I know im not giving much to go on, Sorry.

    That's what I like to hear.

    Lol no problems! Just wondering, because your shortlist contained two large mice (Mionix Naos and Deathadder), a medium one (Zowie EC2) and a tiny one (G9X) lol. Well I'm sure you're not like me, and will be happy with any of those.

    I would personally say the G9X is the most precise for the design work at a high DPI (it's small, and also has a laser sensor) but less suited to FPS; whereas the optical Deathadder is amazing for FPS but slightly less precise (by perception anyway) if you use the higher sensitivities. It's to do with using the fingertips to control the mouse, compared to largely using your palm/other parts. And also regarding the size and weight, you want a small mouse for more precision, so anyhow IMO the EC2 would be perfect. Medium, light, works fine with fingertip control as well as sweeping action in FPS. It's my favourite anyway.

    But disregard much of what I say as I'm talking about truly tiny differences, any of the mice you are considering will be a real treat for your hand :)

    I use the M60 and find it so much better than other mice I've used in the past. It just screams quality all round

    For pure FPS I would recommend Zowie EC2 or Steelseries Xai - if you have the money.
    Otherwise the G400 is perfect. I have a Xai and it is amazing to use. HOWEVER I would say build
    quality is a little suspect.

    Other than those, the ROCCAT Kone I had was probably THE best mouse I ever had. Until it broke 3
    months later. Then the replacement broke about 5 months in. But as an actual mouse, it was brilliant.

    You don't say what surface you use. But all those mice I tried worked great on QcK Heavy, QcK+, qPad
    and Titan everglide. The Kones "CPU" thingy feature only worked on a solid black icemat I borrowed.
    I don't know if that was just mine or if they're all like that - but that is my experience.

    But um, good luck finding one! :) Takes me months to find a mouse to buy. :D

    WOW you use 3200 for really detailed pixel perfect graphic work? Are you at a crazy high screen resolution?

    I'm just wondering, can you move the cursor one pixel at a time with that resolution?

    Anyhow, I would suggest getting really good mouse feet so that your tiniest movements will register

    Logitech mice fan here too. I would recommend MX518 (or G400 replacement).
    Fantastic shape, great grip, buttons etc. I've had my MX518 for last 8 years and it still going strong.
    Thinking of change too, but cannot see anything better than just getting G400:)
    Is there any brand new Logitech flagship mouse out?

    Well, if you want a mouse for fps, Razor is your best option. They have the excellent mouse. Shape is great. Accuracy is great. Everything about it is great.

    MX518 is the best mouse I've owned. Had it for at least 5 years, never one issue and still going strong.

    Unfortunately is isn't in production anymore but Logitech now do the improved G400 which I've heard is just as good / better.

    mouse feet -> depends on the mouse you get. Just ensure it glides real smooth and it would be easier to make tiny adjustments in cursor movement.

    and that frost32 seems like a bot.

    I use a Corsair M60 and love it.

    Having said that, the BLOOOOOOOO LED does irritate me a little, and will be bodged out in due course.

    Tiny piece of smoke coloured film on the underside of the LED plastic so you can keep the light without it driving you utterly insane during darkened sessions. I hate ostentatious LEDs on tech.

    +1 for the G9x. I have a claw/fingertip grip and its awesome. Mind you it's the only gaming mouse I've owned but FWIW I absolutely love it.
