Looking for recommendations to replace my Deathadder, give me your suggestions - I would also appreciate reasoning on why you like/dislike a particular mouse :)

Things I want in my new mouse:
-2 thumb buttons (more is ok, as long as 2 are easily reachable, as I like to use a thumb button for Push-To-Talk)
-I am right handed so must be either a righty or ambidextrous mouse
-Comfortable for my hand size (I am 7.75"/20cm from base of palm to tip of middle finger), this is ofc very subjective
-Wired

Let me know what yall think!

the zowie fk series is my favorite mouse ive ever used, not sure which model you would want to get as its mostly down to hand size and grip style, but ive had the mouse for over a year now with 0 issues, overall a great experience. the main downside is no drivers, so if youre on a very weird dpi that might be a drawback, but it's never been a particular issue for me. the model i use, the fk1, is only 88 grams which i personally prefer to some of the super light mouses like the glorious or finalmouse products. cord isnt woven which kinda sucks, but the quality of everything is very high for the price so cant really complain.

check this, top 20 mice arguably have little to no bad sides, it just depends on your aim style and shape preferences

- Zowie EC1/2-A
- Logitech G303 Daedalus Apex
- Cooler Master MM710 (53g lightweight mouse similar to those of FinalMouse but way more affordable. Initial batch had quality control issues but they should be resolved now and if not they will replace your mouse for free)
- Logitech G403 or G Pro (wired or wireless. Logitech has fantastic wireless gaming mice)

Try the Intellimouse. Shape is really good for palm/relaxed claw. It weighs 108 grams, though, so it takes some getting used to.

on a further note, the deathadder shape was actually inspired by the intellimouse, so it'll feel familiar.

I'd strongly recommend against MM710, I bought the newest batch and the buttons just grind against the shell and have horrendous post travel. No point in buying Zowie FK series, Model O has the same shape and better scroll, buttons, cable and feet. New wireless tech is better than wired. You can't go wrong with either Model O/O- or G Pro Wireless.

I second this. Zy's mouse reviews are solid.

Reflectohow do you grip your mouse?

Short answer: I'll be moving to a full palm grip with my new setup.

Long answer: My old setup had a 1" tall wrist pad on a narrow mousepad (6.5") so I had a weird hybrid of palm and fingertip where I'd mix wrist and arm movement to aim, but I'll be moving to a full size mouse pad and most likely a full palm grip as a result with the new setup.

For the best unmodded experience, it doesn't make sense to go Zowie in 2019. The competition has come so far and Zowie hasn't kept up (Finalmouse too, for that matter)

Model O/D, G Pro Wireless (or other Logitech mice), Razer Viper (Ultimate), G-Wolves Skoll/Hati, MM710, Kone Pure Ultra, Endgame XM1...so many great options.

I'm on a Viper Ultimate and it's great. Since it sounds like you really like side buttons, it might be difficult to get used to it though. They're designed to be more "out of the way", which took me more getting used to. I wish I tried the G Pro wireless...

G-Wolves has latency issues. XM1 is a better Sensei but it has a rubber cable, and it's another 15 bucks to paracord it.

The upcoming model D has pretty large side buttons.

The mouse has so much potential to be one of the best mice on the market but I guess they just can't seem to grip onto high build quality. Sucks
