Default help choosing a new mouse

I'm thinking of buying a new mouse. I've narrowed it down to either a Steelseries Ikari laser mouse or the Logitech G9. They seem similar but I'm having trouble deciding between them .

That's good info plus I found the G9 for less than the steelseries.

Personally I find the G9 very uncomfortable. The Ikari is my personal choice, I absolutely love mine. Comes down to comfort every time

Definitely the Ikari. The Ikari is a significant improvement any any Logitech mouse. Once you try it you'll be convinced.

Thanks for the suggestions . I ended up going with the Ikari, it fit my hand better. Way better than my last mouse.
