Advice for New Mouse

I am looking for some recommendations for a new gaming mouse. A while ago I bought a Razer Deathadder 2013 because it is very popular and well reviewed, but TBH I detest it; the shape is not right for a fingertip hold and the damn rubber grips are the most slippery surface I ever expierienced in a mouse.

So as I mentioned, I hold the mouse with my fingertips and use a dpi of 2000, and I move the mouse with my fingers and wrist, and play mouse only. So here's the traits I'm looking for in a mouse, in rough order of importance~


-Flawless grip and traction

-Good shape for a fingertip hold

-Very Easily Clickable buttons

-2000 dpi or more optical sensor (I've only heard bad things about laser so I see no reason for it)

-Lightweight, and with low traction feet

-Mouse buttons on side (for other games, preffered but not 100% neccesary)

-At least 500hz polling rate

-must be wired

-Looks good, preferably black

-No amount of money is too much for Osu!

So recommendations thankyou please~

Wired? Care to explain why you prefer wired mouses instead of wireless?

I grip and move the mouse similarly, (using 750DPI though) and have been happy with a Logitech G300.
It's pretty light and small and can do up to 2500DPI. It's got some grippy-rubbery-thingy-stuff on the sides so it doesn't slip off your hand too easily, and enough programmable buttons. I've heard people say the shape's weird though, but look into it.

Edit: the rubbery stuff on the sides is a tad slippery for the first few months before it wears off a bit.

Doesn't die on you and no lag.

Intellimouse, Steelseries Rival , Zowie FK.

Intellimouse is only 400 dpi, but i dont think u need more than that.

Leave it up to me to decide what DPI I need.

+1, and plus the battery adds weight.

This is the mouse I've been considering. Though the Zowie FK only has 3 dpi settings, would there be any issues with using the 2300 setting and putting the Osu sen. at 0.87 for 2001 effective dpi?
I've looked into the other suggestions, but they all have that rubber side grip I'm dubious about. Still more suggestions would be welcome

Wait for more information about logitech's G502 Proteus Core. I hear it's brilliant for all types of grips and logitech claims it to use a completely new sensor which makes all others inferior, apparently.

I'm actually looking forward to the Logitech G502 Proteus Core myself. It supposedly has one of the more comfortable shapes, features customizable weight and balance, and has been reported to have an optical sensor that outperforms just about every mouse currently on the market. No guarantees about the sensor though, but I'm really hoping that it's true.

Yes it looks quite interesting; I might wait till it comes out, some time this month? read the reviews and I might buy it.

there's also the mionix avior 7000, it looks very fingertip grippyish

but damn that g502 looks so good

Mionix Avior 7000 because zowie AM and FK are harder to click

No batteries
Cheaper
Less latency
Most of the best mouses are wired

The ONLY reason I see wanting wireless is so that a cord doesn't bother you, but for desktop use the cord shouldn't be getting in the way of anything, and if it is snagging on things or something like that, it should be a really easy fix.

dont forget when you have multiple wireless devices at once and they cause interference with one another

Is that so? What is your source?

zowie AM and FK use huano switches instead of omrons, they're slightly heavier (probably to reduce misclicks in fps games)

pretty sure mionix mice use omrons

Yep, only "downside" to Zowie mice if used to play RTS and other games with constant fast clicking needed\
