Hello everyone,

First off all if my english is not the best I´m sorry, I´ll try.

So I´m looking for a new mouse, and here are the things I´m looking for in it:

- Small / Medium size (my hands are about 17.5cm / 6.88 inch middle finger to wirst and 9cm / 3.54inch from thumb to the other side of the hand.

- Claw grip (maybe a hybrid between claw and fingertip not sure)

- For mostly FPS games

- Not a complicated design

- Budget isn´t really a big deal, I wouldn´t like to spend more than 80 euros.

So throught research (I saw a lot of review from a channel called "Rocket Jump Ninja", who does excelent reviews) I think these are the best options, but im not sure which (or maybe other mouse that is not listed here) is the best option.

--» Zowie FK2

--» Zowie EC2-A

--» Logitech g403 (i think thats quite large tho)

--» Logitech G Pro

--» Logitech g303 (can´t find it anywhere so I don´t know if this is a vaible choice)

I hope i can get either nice suggestions or opinions about the mice listed so I can buy the best mouse for me.

Thanks a lot.

Yeah rocket jump ninja is great. I am looking for a new mouse too. I am currently favouring either the mionix caster or roccat kone emp, although the pure 2017 may be a better fit for you. Just thought I would add in a couple of options although RJN seems to swear by his zowie I just couldn't live with its looks.

Yes he does really like zowies but im not quite sure about the roccat, because idk if the sensor is good (probably is) but i dont know why i cant decide. Between my options and the roccat, what would you choose and why?

I am asking myself the same questions. The sensor on the Roccat is the new owl eye which is a 3361, a variation of the 3360 (corsair have the 3367 which is their variation on that sensor but its not really anything 99.99% of people will notice) which is one of the more modern and better sensors out there so I wouldn't worry about that.

For me it will come down to how they feel in my hand. I have a logitech G400 at the moment and the Kone is closer in shape to that but lighter, but then the G400 is a very heavy mouse (136g I think compared to 116g of the Kone, the Pure is 88g, thats why I suggested it to you as you said you play FPS games)

I am favouring the Mionix for price but the Kone for looks, but as I say it will probably come down to comfort.

The Logitech G403 didn't feel large to me at all when I tried it, fwiw. Very familiar shape and feel, similar to that of the Razer Deathadder in that respect.

The Deathadder was the first real mouse I ever owned; it felt great then, and it still does now. I've switched to Logitech products since, but I don't get how sometimes these online review websites knock a mouse for feeling "too familiar". Its like, if it worked back then and felt good... how is it a bad thing that they kept those good aspects? As if the shape of human hands is evolving every decade and mouse shapes are expected to keep up... lmao.

Exactly, i agree with you. I personally think that the deathadder shape is pretty nice and althought my hands are "not supposed"" to be the same size of it i could actually aim nicely when i tested it so the deathadder elite might be my choice for that
