No argument there. I'm a big-time claw-grip person, but the G5 is far better for hand-grippers. For what it's worth, Direct Canada has the G9 on for just under $80, which is slightly more bearable.

I really like the mouse. I've used it for a few days and it works awesome. Once I get my PSU back from RMA I'll have my gaming rig up and running and test out the mouse in a gaming environment. You should be very pleased with the mouse.
