what's a good gaming mouse for small hands?

Sat Jan 05, 2013 11:00 pm

I play a lot of FPS. I use a Razer Krait because it is small-ish but am looking for suggestions.

I guess I go claw style - arching my hand over the mouse body and using fingertips to control it, thumb hard on left side.

Death Adder? G9X?

Logitech mx 518 seemed big. Thanks.

Personally I like the kinzu, small and ambidextrous. If you search for feedback on esreality, you'll see people complaining about +/- acceleration on the pixart sensor, but whatever.

I am a fan of the G9x but I have XXL gorilla paws (almost a 10" span). I find it a good fit for claw grip because of the rough vertical sides (on the rough-grip shell) but it's neither small nor narrow.

If you want a smaller mouse, look at some of the upper end "mobile" mice from Logitech/Microsoft.
This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine. However, my signature is neither my best friend, nor is it my life. I also have no desire to master it and my worth is not signature-dependent.

My VX Nano is a good example. Unfortunately, it's been discontinued.

The NZXT Avatar S is cheap but it works quite well in my experience. It is similar in length to most mice but is much narrower.
I am jaded. I am cynical.

So I bought a corsair M60. It seemed really large - longer, higher and wider than my Razer Krait. Kinzu seemed too small, others had potential - thanks for the info.

That said, the M60 fits my actually exactly medium hands well. I get what others have said about the sniper button being 1/2" or so too far forward. The width is actually a bonus. It has an etched left side which is nice too - and not slippery.

Initial impressions are very good. The feel of the buttons is good.

Instructions, etc, however, are terrible. I got the manual and software online after looking at a silly "start here" handout that basically says plug it into a USB slot in 4 frames. No mention of software at all in the package.

Now to play with weights and software.

Very much worth a look.

Death adder is certainly NOT for small hands, I have fairly big hands and the mx518 always felt small-ish in my hand. The deathadder is bigger and feels better for me.
