    Palm grip.

    Something that will last several years as my 2nd FUNC MS3r2 has begun to show signs of failure. It's seen my through BF3, BF4 and several friends were almost as heart broken as me that the mouse is dying. Lots of good times on this mouse, but I got to move on...no stores have got this any more. The brand was bought by Fnatic, and their current range is too small and weedy-looking.

    The bigger the better, but wired is what I use...

    Logitech G502. It's really enjoyable to use. I bought one on sale and I used to be a diehard Deathadder person, but after the 900th one broke I switched sides. Was not disappointed.

    G502, but it prefers finger grip.

    G400s or Deathadder is more designed for palm grip.

    The 502 does look good, if a little small. The side lip is interesting, like the picture I linked.

    Any others? I'll consider anything if it's Palm grip. Claw is just too painful over long periods.

    I palm my 502 like I did my DeathAdder with no complaints. It would only be an issue if you had huge hands.

    G502, pretty happy with it. Using a mix of palm and figer grip, I quite enjoy the mouse and it's quality.

    That girl in the OP would need one for finger grip, look at those tiny hands and fingers :D :banana:

    G502 user here, bought it on release from America before it released in the UK. Best mouse I've ever used. If it breaks I'll buy another G502. Best sensor on the market, enough buttons, built like a tank, scroll wheel might take a bit of getting used to (from what I remember when I first used it) but now it feels absolutely normal.

    Free scrolling is a godsend in games like Diablo 3.

    It's looking like being one of the following:

    Corsair Sabre Optical Gaming Mouse

    [​IMG]

    Sharkoon Sharkforce

    [​IMG]

    Cooler master Xornet ii (this is apparently a comfortable claw grip)

    [​IMG]

    Corsair M65 PRO

    Hi there

    I have went via few mouses, Razer DeathAdder which has not been bad, but I hate this mouse, because has been too light for me, then Corsair M65 which is has been my biggest disappointment, SW is buggy causing high clocks on GPU and several times has happened GPU stayed at low clocks during the gaming or rendering and then I've went with G502 which has been and is best mouse which I owned to the date, first mouse brother has stolen from me and bought second one

    My brother tried my M65 which he hated, my girlfriend hated M65 mouse and still sits in my closet

    Personally I would go with Logitech G502, its great mouse for money, I will be getting G900 as well just want to see how good or bad is it

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Like... Why start a thread asking "which mouse to get", then get like 80%+ people recommending the G502 just for you to completely ignore them? Next time just buy whatever you want, no need to ask if you're not going to listen.

    Eclap, that's very easy to answer: because it is not a palm grip mouse. The mices I have listed apparently are, other than the finger grip mouse, which is the other end of the spectrum of palm.

    Eclap, I could also easily say the same thing "Why reply to a thread asking for a new palm grip mouse with the 502?" but I didn't because that would be kinda antagonistic. If people wanted to reply to the thread with their favourite mouse, that's up to them, even if it went against my question and request. I didn't mock them, I didn't berate them; I accepted this would happen but hoped someone would point me in the direction of a Palm Grip.

    I am probably going to add the Mionix NAOS 7000/8000 to my list of preferences, thanks to mbk1969; but their website is down and has been for a while, so it's hard to comment and gauge in too much depth.

    I did already comment on the 502 "The 502 does look good, if a little small. The side lip is interesting, like the picture I linked." I'm sorry if you missed that.

    jura11 put forth some awesome feedback on the mices I listed, and I do thank them for that! I was tempted by the design and sizes mostly, not the brand (I am replacing a mouse by FUNC, a company which is now defunct) but yah, I do need a big mouse for palm grip, as that is my style of use for the last 5-6 years and I don't want to go back. Finger grip/stub might work, as I can scrunch-up my palm a little bit hence why I am considering the Xornet ii

    sverek put forward an interesting point about corsair, and I have to say I did find it surprising they had any products in this area, as I always had them pegged for more cases, cooling, memory; not mices.

    Look eclap, I respect all the responses here and deeply respect that something personal like a mouse is a very difficult thing for people to comment on. I also know it will bring forth a lot of passion, due to it's use. I think that people being passionate about technology is cool, I really do!

    I hope you do, too.

    Another point of choice - included software. Some companies utilize internet-based solutions to store parameters, and some (which I prefer) - mouse memory solutions. I prefer to run mouse software from time to time when I want something to change/check. I disapprove of mouse software to run all the time for mouse to work with configured parameters.

    Agree 100%

    The FUNC has got on board memory and eprom, and does run independently of it's software. This, I really could not like more and you are so right.

    Unfortunately when you browse sites it is not always obvious which route mouse software takes.
    Mionix equips their mouses with onboard memory, so the software can be launched only when you need it.
    With Corsair I am not sure because some their models work with such standalone software and some - with internet-based one. And some are stated to work with internet-based software but actually work with standalone as well. (This could be outdated info because I did not browse their site for a long time.)

    Hey, no hard feelings, it's just that you see threads pop up where the OP is asking for advice just to completely ignore it in the end and buy some dud product.

    My advice is this. Go to a store and try out the G502. See if it fits in your hand. Alternatively, buy one from Amazon, try it and if you don't like it, send it back, no questions asked.

    Imo the G502 is too good to be ignored. Excellent sensor, well built, enough buttons, just overall a top product. Good luck whatever you end up getting.

    If you want to have comfortable experience with mouse and grabbing it with palm you need to look for this points:
    1) Big
    2) Ergonomic
    3) Preferably Heavy

    Thing is, Corsair are not big, nor ergonomic nor have much weight. So you looking totally into wrong direction. You gonna end up having corsair mouse sitting in upper side of your palm and your back side on the table, which is wrong.

    People recommending G502 because its hard to go wrong with it. But you can select better mouse if you actually try to learn and read reviews and understanding what mouse suits palm grip.

    And to add more hate toward corsair mouses, there no communities I know that recommend corsair mouses for competitive fps gaming. Corsair might do something right, but their gaming apparel is anything but disaster, which they try to cover with customer service and shiny RGB. Oh, by customer service I mean staff that hangs out with braindead PCMR community.

    I'm pretty sure PC World have in stores G502 and would recommend at least try this mouse, how it feels in hand etc

    Corsair mouses not sure if I would get another one

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura
