Looking for a new mouse for larger hands. :)
« on: 03:30 PM - 11/28/15 »
I am using a Deathadder Chroma and it is pretty darn good.
I have big hands and was wondering if anyone could recommend a xim compatible mouse thats a bit larger, 6 button (inluding wheel button) and can hold macros.
10,000 dpi a plus.
I mainy play Destiny and FPS
Thanks gang.

Happy Holidays.

I have a Rival and I love it, I don't have particularly big hands but I could see it working well for someone with larger hands than mine.  I think its only 5 button though if I remember correctly, I'm not home or I would tell you for sure.  (ps I use it for my PC, I too use a Deathadder with my XIM)

The Rival 300 is the one you should go for, i Have the Cs:Go fade edition.

That's the one I use and I love it! I have large palms, short fingers and this mouse provides amazing comfort, with the side buttons having perfect reach placement for my thumb. I also love the side grips that keep me from having to use a death grip for lift-off.

I recently picked up a G502 (hard to pass it up at $40) and ordered a G303 (should be here this week). I can't say I'm very impressed with the G502- as far as comfort and overall feel. The back mouse button is practically useless for me (can't bring my thumb that far back from my normal grip) and every once in a while it starts to jitter so bad my screen looks like I'm experiencing an earthquake (happened with my PR at both 1k and 500Hz, no acceleration, straight and curved ballistic curves). It will definitely be a back up to my Rival.

The G303 is a claw-grip mouse, but it also feels great in my hand and the side buttons are well placed. It has the same sensor as the G502, so I can't say I'm anxious to get it- but I only paid $25 for it.

Zowie Ec1-A is a great option. Scroll up & down do not work with the xim4, only scroll click does.

What grip do you use?

I found Steelseries Sensei to be overly large and tall for my not so huge hands, mostly because I prefer a fingertip grip rather than palm. I handed it off to a friend who has freakishly large hands and it was a much better fit.

Nice mouse, I would have kept it if it was two thirds the size.

im 6'6 with big hands, the mionix 5000 was the most comfortable mouse ive ever used and it has slots for all your fingers. unfortunately something happened to the cord and it stopped working. then the g502 came out and thought id try it out since everyone here was freaking out about it. mouse is nice but its smaller than the mionix, took me a while to get used to resting my palm on the desk vs the mouse. im going to stick to this mouse till it croaks then ill give the new mionix 7000 a try, roads has been saying nothing but good things about it. hope this helps.
