As some of you know, I've recently built a new computer with an old friend of mine.


He also gave me his old gaming mouse (Zowie) which replaced my old non-gaming mouse (Kensington).

The Kensington was much smaller and lighter than the Zowie, and it was actually perfect for the grip that I use, a hybrid between Claw and Fingertip. My hands to get sweaty while I'm gaming, so I think I naturally defaulted into a grip that lessens the palm-contact with my mouse. Since the Zowie is slightly bigger and heavier, the palm-contact increased but it's not too bad. Having small hands and a Claw/Fingertip grip means I like my mice small and light. XD


Anyway, what grip are you?




I know there was a similar thread before, but it's been a very long time!

EDIT: palm rhymes with calm or something

I alternate between a claw grip and a palm grip for TF2 (claw for scout and palm for sniper and solider) but in general for most other games I use a palm grip.

I had more of a fingertip grip, but transitioned to palm recently. I just feels a lot more stable/controlled.

My mouse is pretty short, so in order to have a palm grip my fingertips would literally be off the mouse. As such, I have fingertip grip.

I think I hold it in a palm grip because I've always played N64 and PS2 as a kid. /shrug

Somewhere between Palm and Fingertip. I can't fully palm, because my fingers would go off the mouse, but my hand is mostly flat.

Palm all the way. My fingers are pretty long, which is why I buy longer mouses. Claw grip looks painful as hell and the fastest way to develop arthritis.

I use palm but I don't exactly rest my hand on it, it's more like a death grip around it. It gives me control but I tend to break the buttons on the side of them (mouse4/5) except on nagas where I just randomly press stuff by accident.

I'm somewhere between fingertip and claw. I have a bit more contact on the mouse than would probably be considered fingertip, but definitely not as much as clawing it.

With my MASSIVE 6'6 ARCTIC GIANT BODY my mouse disappears if I try to palm grip most mice, and I've always been pretty naturally inclined to the fingertip grip.

I'm a mixture of claw and fingertip.

My hand will have the claw fingers but fingertip palm.
