    Mikomi? Can you post a link to the mouse you use?

    the plastic is pretty thick, so it was a substantial weight reduction. but i cant tell how much, because i dont lift
    CA with <16 slots is nothing.

    Sorry, they only seem to make them for Argos who have since stopped carrying them. You can find some on ebay (the three button one) if you really want it. I guess the ideal scenario would be to find a large computer store with a large amount of mice on display that you could try out. I'm feeling paranoid now because Argos seem not to be carrying them anymore.
    Aways ensure you are maintaining a high FPS rate in QL. Otherwise you can be at a big disadvantage. To find out your current fps rate, use the command: "set cg_drawfps "1"".

    AM-3055U black. I also put an extra mouse foot on the lower side to make it smoother.

    Try AM-2611U.

    What about the weight of your own hand/wrist bearing down on the mouse, huh? Most hands are big, heavy hunks of meat compared to the mouse.

    Don't want to add to it with a heavy mouse!

    Lorfa can't stand the Xai, not only is 98 grams heavy, but most of the weight is at the back of the mouse. Gives it a very uncomfortable feel.

    I stand by my assertion that the weight of the mouse is not significant compared to the mass of your hand and wrist - unless you are cursed with little monkey paws in lieu of actual human-size hands.
