Just got a Redragon Nothosaur - as far as I can see it is not available in USA or EU, but I got it for $12, and I wanted it only for the PIXART PMW3168 sensor for another project. I am really surprized by how much more I like it than my DeathAdder. The fact that the CPI change button is at a sensible position and that it works without installing Spynapse is great. It also feels a lot better in terms of tracking performance. I don't care much for the LEDs and the build quality is a bit lower than the DeathAdder, but overall I think this is amazing value for the money. 10/10 would buy again.

Definitely the Logitech G403 Wireless for me, they managed to pack in a great sensor, wireless that out performs wired, and a long battery life at a low cost. Now I only wish I recieved one of the newer ones without the scroll wheel rattle.

My G903 is double clicking on single click on left. That is why you choose Logitech! They just send you another and do not even have to send back the old one. I urge people not to abuse this and ruin it! Otherwise it is great IMO. I was sure I preferred the G502 until I got used to it. So much lighter is a big deal.

This is a really old post of yours - are you still getting double clicks on the 2nd mouse button?  I'm left handed so MY primary button double clicks occasionally...

In terms of shape, Logitech G Pro Wireless is the absolute safest and most comfortable ambi shape out there. I was very disappointed by the Razer Viper Ultimate, but Logitech QC is also garbage as of late. I've RND-d both, and I'm using a $30 OEM Finalmouse clone called the E-Shark Naginata with super high end internals and weighs 60 grams, which is the best bang-for-buck mouse out there at the moment. You might find the same mouse rebranded by a bunch of different companies.

I just replaced the switches in my G903.  I'm left handed and there aren't a lot of fully-buttoned ambidextrous mice out there...I'm in love with my mouse now.

It's come down to me needing a full on traditional mouse replacement as both my pointer and middle fingers are absolutely destroyed. I switched over to clicking with my middle finger for a while since my mouse finger was so painful and swollen, but instead of the pointer finger healing now I just have two wrecked fingers. I can't click anymore.

Anyone have any suggestions? Wrists are fine, but I cannot use my pointer and middle fingers properly any longer without great pain.

You can't do the 'down click' movement only, or can't use those fingers at all?

If you can still use the fingers for other motions, then something like a CST Trackball might work. The thumb and the ring/pinkie are used to actuate the buttons on those things, and pointer/index/ring are used to push the ball around.

Or... left handed mouse?

yeah I'll probably go with a trackball, they are tried and tested. was looking at the rollermouse too but it seems kinda gimmicky.

I'll second that recommendation for the trackball and the thought about the rollermouse being gimmicky. I had a pointing device back in the day that used a similar concept; having any restrictions on physical movement (side-to-side in this case) will cause frustrations with extended/multiple screens or any time you're in a free-movement environment.

If you absolutely need precision on a pointing device, looking into ultra-light mice and thinking about swapping out or modifying the switches to be mushier might be a good alternative. I'm definitely not a fan of Razer products, but their optical switches on the Viper Mini do feel good to use as they are light and soft on the bottom-out.

I could have sworn I posted here before...

Anyway. Iíve been using a Logitech mx performance for years now.

I have been looking for a suitable replacement, have however yet to find something that matches its button-layout, which I have become very much used to.

The MX Master seems great at first, is however missing 2 buttons to the side, which I always use to mute and open things in new browser tabs. Anyone know of something that fits the bill?

A couple of other ideas occurred to me- doubled trackballs or mice on either side of the keyboard to spread the load of cursor movement?

Tex Yoda or Tex Shinobi with the integrated trackpoint? The mouse buttons are thumb-actuated, and you can use either thumb rather than the same hand each time.

I've been using the latest Microsoft Intellimouse Pro (white shadow) and besides the nostalgia factor, it's an excellent mouse for anyone with larger sized hands.
I only wish they allowed the tail light to not only change colors but also be dimmed as well.

Right now, it's the Logitech G Pro Wireless.

However, I am waiting for my Glorious Model O Wireless to arrive, and it'll be interesting to see if that one surpasses the Logitech.

If I wasn't a gamer, the answer would've been Logitech MX Master 3. ;)

Currently I swap between my G403 Wireless, Model O, Flick G1 (favorite shaped mouse is the G1) at home, I designated my Deathadder w/ Hyperglides to my desk at work.  I'm wanting to snag a Model O Wireless, but might wait to see if they launch the O- or D- as wireless options.  I retired my Scream 1 & 2012 Naga (for now).

The steelseries rival 100 is still my favorite (and one of the cheapest) mice I've owned. It has a normal shape that my semi-claw grip can use for hours on end without fatigue.
It's also insanely responsive, the optical sensor in this thing really is a treat.

That's the UV coating and there's not much you can do about how your body works since everyone is different. If it's become a problem you could clean the mouse after use (an eraser works good for soaking up oil and removing grime, and clean cloth to remove the loose debris after does the trick) or consider wearing a glove, but there's not much you can do about body chemistry.

I'm a long-time G903 user and fan but the G Pro Wireless is making a strong case for me. My gaming accuracy improved in combination with lower sensitivity settings which seem to work best with this mouse.

I do miss the tilt scroll wheel buttons that I map to change tabs on my browser.

Been using the G603 since it was released, my second one right now and I have a third unopened for when this one breaks.

Would love a version with upgraded internals or the MX Master with more side buttons.

Can't live without six side buttons now. Forward, back, refresh, close window, view desktop and a macrokey - for normal use and other functions for like Photoshop, Illustrator etc that just switches seamlessly using Logitechs Software.

Out of mice that I can actually use currently? GPX Superlight. Stock feet are really bad, so aftermarket ones are the imo mandatory. If we include mice from all time? The WMO is still my favourite mouse shape.

So far my Steelseries Sensei 310.  Weight is reasonable, shape is what I like, ambidextrous, and the sensor does not glitch due to my weird tilt slams.  Glossy in the same shape would be nice in the future.

Deathadder for me, though I do love my trackballs every once in a while, used them all the time when I was younger. Still own a wireless Logitech trackball as a backup mouse. The Deathadder V2 is the third one I've owned, used the Deathadder Elite for 6-7 years before the usb connection finally started randomly dissipating for whatever reason. And of course I used the original Deathadder as a hand-me-down from my dad at one point. He still uses it to this day I believe.

Currently, a Logitech G Pro (wired) with a CeeSA paracord, Corepad Skatez and Kailh GM 8.0 switches. It's been serving me for over four years at this point, with the only thing failing being the Omron microswitches that ship with it.

However, I've recently started considering getting a new mouse, looking at the Pwnage Ultra Custom Wireless Symmetrical (long name lol). Anyone using this mouse? People say it's basically the Zowie S2, just with wireless capabilities. Personally liked the Zowie S2 that one time I tried it at a friend's place, but I'm wondering how the Pwnage holds up against it.

So I tried the Pro X Superlight but I still prefer the GPW since that weighs just right for me. Neither to light nor too heavy and easier to control for more precise shots.

The Superlight feels hollow because of its size to weight ratio. When I got it, the left mouse button felt loose so I decided to upgrade the switches to GM 8.0s. Since I ruined the stock mouse feet in the process, I installed Corepad skates as well. In the end, I still prefer my GPW overall. I also like the feel and sound of the stock Omrons over the Kailhs.

After years with Logitech and couple of months with Razer Baselisk I just recently found Cooler Master MM720.
It is not best one, it doesn't have super features but... the unique shape is amazingly ergonomic for me. It beats all ergo mouses like G502.

I do not like the G502, the middle click is a disaster and the wheel is not great at all, I don't understand why people love it?

I think the model o is the one that has a similar shape to the deathadder, which is 15 dollars brand new in the essential form. Its okay to try if you like that shape then purchase the model o and keep the essential as a backup mouse.

I apologize for cross posting this. I use a G502 Lightspeed or G903 Lightspeed currently. The update to 25,600DPI was a very nice gift indeed. The Viper 8K does not impress me. The reason being, for one I do not enjoy their lack of quality. YMMV. More importantly, No display currently on the market can refresh that fast. Certainly not the high end graphics editing displays that I am using. I do not game at all. I code. A lot. So here comes the cross post. I am hearing that many coders now prefer the MX Master 3. I have been the Track Ball route as well. They seem to prefer it over the MX Ergo too. Anyone have any experience with it?

That would be the Model D that would share forms w/ the Deathadder (i have a Black Ops 3 edition Deathadder Chroma, decent mouse but about 3-5mm's too big), the model O shares similarities to Zowie's FK & S series mice.  I like the shape but I want it a mouse at 118-121mm length for my comfort/accuracy for hand placement.  The Superlight is closer but I can't be sure unless I try one out (of course I'd rather spend $150 on a GMK cap set but yeah, lol), and I know the Model O-/D- are nearly perfect in size but they need wireless versions (which I'm sure they're in process to being made - I would hope). 
I own too many mice as it is - I have a hardware hoarding issue - DA BO3 Chroma, 2012 Naga,  Zowie EC1-A SE white & Standard, FinalMouse Sream1, Rival 110, MM711, Model O, G403 Wireless, Flick G1 (best shape and size, just needs to be lighter), G502 Proteus Spectrum, Gigabyte DA clone, and my collector piece MSFT Intellimouse v1.1 (this mouse stays packed up in a box in storage).

I would love to find a good work/play trackball, I learned to play the original UnReal on a trackball/KB combo and imo it was amazing that way.  I can understand why many move to a track for productivity/workflow purposes as you're not straining your mouse hand w/ constant movement away from your board/workspace.  Also alot of programs work exceptionally well with them (AutoDesk and Adobe Suite - from my experience). 
I'm sure they could help in coding due to the ability to stick close to your board etc.

Re: What your fav mouse?

I mean if you like your old deathadder but find it too big, the Deathadder v2 Pro exists. And I would say it meets the criteria precisely.

I should have a ploopy coming soon from Canada, but who knows what kind of customs hell it is lying within that I have yet to be notified of. In the mean time I am using the L-trac as my casual mouse with my Deathadder v2 as backup/gaming mouse. I have only ever learned RTS's with a trackball though so it is nice to have one again so I can replay some of my childhood favorites like Maelstrom, Mech Commander, Lord of the Rings BFME, and of course Warcraft III.

From my experience with an old M570 I do have to say the only real benefit that I have felt ergonomically is the better allowance for larger keyboards on smaller desks, as both less space is needed for your hand to move and you don't have to stretch your arms like a hunchback. That and the fact most trackballs these days are wireless and don't need to be positioned in a particular way.
