    Guys, I was going to buy the Mamba TE. However I found that a few people says that the razer DeathAdder is better than mamba. And now there is Basilisk which seems good in fps game...... Which mouse should i get?

    DeathAdder Elite - the most "universal" mouse, with great shape.

    But I'd also consider Razer Basilisk - the same optical sensor, it also has built-in internal memory for storing configuration and ability to change scroll resistance.

    It also depends, what shape do you personally prefer.

    I'm using the Deathadder. Already said in another post but it's a pretty good mouse for its price. Really like the feel of it and yes, I do agree that it's pretty universal - I play CS:GO, Dota, etc. using this mouse. If you want to focus on FPS games then the basilisk's built-in memory setting is bloody brilliant for it.

    But so far, my mouse is 1 year in and my scroll wheel is a bit loose. It doesn't catch on to the inner mechanism all the time. Also, the rubber grips at the sides are peeling off. I've had to use superglue to get it back but even then it pops out here and there. In addition, when the grips get dirty (dead skin mostly) it looks gross. Wipe it with a cloth and you risk the rubber grip coming off.

    But performance wise the deathadder has been pretty nice to use so far. Personally, I'm looking to buy the Atheris next, because I'm digging the wireless AFT function, and it being very easy to carry around. The Lancehead is a lot more expensive and bulky so I'm gonna use a wireless mouse from Razer first before deciding to commit more money into this.

    Mamba is good if you're just playing MOBA and MMO, I would recommend an optical sensor if you play FPS most of the time.

    I got the lancehead TE recently, and I have to tell you it feels really good on the hand, the clicks are super satisfying, the mouse wheel is superb, and the lighting is beatifull. I don't have a mamba or a deathadder, but i can recomend you this one.

    Honestly it depends on what games you play.

    Also depends how comfortable it feel to you, everyone is different.

    If you have a best buy near you, you can test them or trade them if you dont like it ;) (maybe other stores too)

    I have both the Mamba TE and the Death Adder, I mostly play League of legend and Fortnite battle royal. They are both great mice but I have ended up just using the Mamba I have no problems using it for shooting games.

    I think it would depend on your type of grip. Whether you "claw" grip or "palm". I personally use my mouse with a "claw" grip thus the diamondback, taipan, krait, ouroboros would suit me more. The deathadder, mamba etc feels weird for me. Personally tried MOST mouse before deciding to just stay with my diamondback chroma.
