Default Time to Replace the Diamondback

So I've had this mouse for close to 6 years now and its starting to wear out. Funny part is its the right mouse button that is pretty much shot.

So time to upgrade and I haven't looked at mice in forever cause I loved this one.

High DPI is awesome for work and play.

I was looking at the Level 10 M mouse from Thermaltake but they're not really know for their mice.

Anyone got a newer mouse and really like it?

I'm mostly a claw grip but sure don't mind palm grip if I have a big enough mouse.

I went from an 1800 DPI Deathadder to RAT 7

I like MY RAT 7

Thumb button that drops DPI is WIN
three profiles
customizable buttons
changeable peaces and bolts to fit grip lengths to better

Palmer myself :)

I've gone through a ton of mice in the past few years.

Now on a G700s from Logitech, and pretty satisfied, I think I'll be sticking with this one for a while.

I've tried a few lately, but I always end up back at the G5/500/500s. The Roccat Kone XTD is a nice mouse as well, but they're quite expensive. They used the same switches as I've found in the G5/500/500s.

As always though, if you have a computer store around that has mice on display, go check them out. Feel is the number one things for a mouse and it's different for everyone.

The thermal take mouse I tried out was garbage. As above, the kone or the logitechs really are the best of the best.

This arrived today (nearly exactly 24 hours after ordering it!) and so far after an hour or so using it, what an awesome difference. Really shouldn't let there be so many years between upgrades haha.

Thanks again for the advice!
