Need a decent mouse for left handed folks

After not even a year my Razer Copperhead is suffering too much from the apparently wellknown left button doubleclick problem to be bearable anymore, I fixed it temporarily using some of the crafting 101 stuff I found on the web, but it's just annoying.

So, I need a decent mouse, price range up to let's say 40 bucks max, that will last me longer than the Razer.
Thing is, it can't be ergonomically shaped for right handed users, since I am a lefty.

I don't need a mouse that is designed for left handed people, unless someone knows of one that is totally awesome, I just want a regular mouse. Please no wireless one.

    I was just about to suggest the left-handed Razer Deathadder, but looks like you don't want anything from them.

    How about the MS Intellimouse Optical? I've used it for years with no problems.

    If anyone knows if the Deathadder has no issues with the mouse buttons I wouldn't mind buying another Razer product. I was very happy with the Copperhead for a while, but the way the buttons wear out is just cheap.

    I've had a deathadder for two years now; it lasted through some significant clickage as I played WoW for a long time (and still do). I have no problems whatsoever with it and like it quite a lot.

    Looking at the Deathadder, but not completely convinced, some people write that the extra buttons are way too sensitive and are often clicked accidentally, any word on that?
    Also I got big hands and long fingers, so anything that would benefit my freakish physique would be great.
    I am currently thinking I might go well over my 40€ limit if it means I get a durable and comfortable mouse.

    There's space for your thumb below the side buttons. I have Xbox "Duke" controller-sized hands, and the Deathadder feels a bit too small, but it's not bad.
