    Yes I understand a lot of the mice that razor sell are for gaming but which mice is best for a game like Starcraft 2 as that is pretty much the only game i play at a high level competitively.

    Do you prefer a simple mouse with not many buttons?
    I would say go Deathadder.
    A wireless mouse?
    I would say go Mamba.
    A mouse with many buttons you can add commands to and macros?
    I would say go Naga

    Deathadder seems to be one of the most popular ones, and my favorite. But all the other options are good options for what they do well also.

    I'd say the naga hex v2 should fit you best, it has 7 side buttons for hotkeys and is really comfortable for longer sessions of starcraft

    i use a diamondback at home for gaming bc i like the simplicity and lightness of the feel. all i ever map are two thumb buttons, & i keep the rest on the keyboard, so it's perfect for my style. i also use a fingertip/claw-ish grip, so the ergonomics matter less to me than the lightness. i hear the deathadder may be a better ergonomic option if you prefer closer to a palm grip. i also have a taipan at work, which has a little more raised of a grip, but it doesn't feel as precise as the diamondback, so i'd definitely recommend the db over it.

    of course, if you need more buttons as mentioned above, a naga will probably be your best bet :)

    For Starcraft I might recommend the Naga Hex but ultimately if you're looking to buy an all around I would just get a Naga Classic.

    If yoh think you can utilize all the buttons for the naga then i strongly encourage you to get it. Otherwise if you need a all purpose mouse then a deathadder or something similar will be perfect

    it all depends on these questions
    -what type of grip do you have? fingertip, claw or palm
    -are you left or right handed?
    -do you like them simple(regular buttons) or complex(more buttoms, customizable)??
    -how large is your hand??

    as you seem to play SC2 I'd advice you to get a naga, personally i use the orochi(not anymore i gave it as a gift:frown_:) for on the go and daily asks; and the mionix castor for gaming(hope saying that us not a sin on these forums and that i don't get stoned to death because of that)

    I guess all you need is the minimal Razer Deathadder. You could also look at competing products like the G402 by logitech, since it's not really a demanding game... just mho

    Well I use a Naga 2014 and love it, though I can't speak to any of the others. I've found that the 12 side buttons have very often come in handy, especially on a laptop, but whether it's a laptop or a desktop it's always nice not to have to move your hand to access the numpad functions. Also find it pretty handy for minecraft. I will say however that if you like a FIRM grasp on the mouse you will have unintentional keypresses, and on a side note, I feel like the side button layout was better on the original Naga MMOG (RIP). And while it might not seem it at first, the two buttons behind the scroll wheel are actually very useful for macros and keybind switching.

    I'm more of a fingertip/claw user does that mean I'd have difficulty using it???

    I've heard some say that they've had issues accidentally pressing the side buttons with certain grips, but it's never been an issue for me. I can hold my mouse in my fingertips and move it around, pick it up and have normal usage without ever pressing those side buttons. I guess it all depends on how hard/firmly you try gripping it.

    I also find that sometimes I will dip my thumb below the buttons and just let them rest on my thumb if I need to hold it longer than just a quick pick up, like when I clean my mouse mat or something. Habit I guess. But yeah, I have no issues with it.

    I agree with most of the people here. You really have to try them out, or at least know what you like to get one. If you are a PALM person, then the CLAW mouse won't be for you. I am more of a palm myself, so using a claw mouse feels uncomfortable!
