    i find lightweight much better, especially with mouse accel
    Same.

    Also went from Goliathus medium friction to Qck+ lowish friction to Zowie G-TF very low friction. Each time the change has been very positive.

    I'm using a Logitech G3. It's pretty light and small which i prefer and i guess it gives me a bit more precision than the standard microsoft optical mouse as mentioned by someone

    I prefer a heavy mice with high sens and light ones with low sens. Atm I use a mx518 with sens 5 accel 0.5.
    Before I use salmosa with a lower sens but salmosa was just to light for my taste...

If possible, I'd also have as little friction between the mouse and the pad as when moving my hand in the air.
    Yeah exactly. Also there's the drag of the wire across the table for the WMO which has a horrible bulky wire. I have another mouse that has a really light wire with ZERO drag and it's much lighter overall but unfortunately it gets confused at really high speeds so I can't use it. Even if you have the WMO wire perfectly elevated in front of you there's an imbalance in movement that it causes. When you're aiming it's a really precise thing in a short period so the slightest thing like that can hurt it. I can't imagine using a mouse that's even heavier than the WMO which I find heavy. My other mouse that I find much better weighs only 60g, the WMO 125g while I see 245g for a Zowie mouse here? (though it may be super low friction).

    Surely these things are a lot more important than using 1000Hz rather than 250Hz. I even had a look at wireless mice but they seem problematic for a number of reasons.

    The reason I got the WMO (again) is because the pros often use it and have used it. But is it safe to assume that the pros are always doing the optimal thing? Maybe they just got used to it out of habit and don't think about it since it's also what other pros use.

    Yeah I agree the WMO cord is a bit bulky. I don't really know though how reliable cordless mouses are currently for gaming and whether there's noticeable added delay. It'd be great to use a lightweight cordless mouse that didn't have noticeable added instability or lag.

    40% LG and 42% MG )) Nice.

    I'd like to use more arm, but high sens for too long means it's mostly wrist for me too. A few days in and I'm finding the lighter mouse more comfortable and easier to handle. LG tracking seems better, tho not to 40% yet
