Looking for a good, full size, wireless mouse

My Logitech LX-7 is getting a bit long in the tooth, so I'm in the market for a new mouse. I'm not sure what to get, as there are a gazillion options out there. My requirements are that it's wireless, and that it's full size. Emphasis on that last one - compact mice and I do not get along (they cause my disabled hands to cramp up), so that's non-negotiable. I'd like it to be a Logitech, as that would allow me to share the receiver that came with the K800 I just bought, but that's more a wish than anything else.

The Performance MX looks intriguing, but the shape is concerning without seeing one in person. I'm open to any suggestions, though.

Thanks.

    As a result of my ongoing love affair with my R.A.T. 7, it would be dishonest of me to recommend any mouse other than the R.A.T. 9 to you. They're adjustable in so many ways!

    I have to admit I have always been intrigued by the R.A.T. family.

    The Logitech G700 is I think the dedictaed "gaming mouse" cousin to the MX, you might look at that too. If you go to a Best Buy or Staples they will probably have an MX out on display you can handle if memory serves from the last couple times I've been to those place.

    Razer Mamba is a decent wireless mouse. It's not the biggest moues on the planet but it certainly isn't compact.

    Apologies for not replying until now. I'm holding off on a purchase until I can check my local stores first so I can actually see/handle them in person, but haven't had the time to go out yet. Hopefully this coming weekend.

    I like Logitech. My current LX-7 has been a no-frills workhorse for years, and I'm still enjoying the new K800 keyboard I bought a couple weeks ago. I don't think I've ever encountered a Logitech peripheral that was objectively bad or defective. Some may not be the right size/fit for me, but as a brand I like them.

    Another +1 for the Razer Mamba, I love mine. If you can't find a Mamba to hold, try a Deathadder, it's the same basic chassis, though the Deathadder is a tad thinner because of no lithium ion battery.

    e: Woops, I meant Deathadder. The Lechisis is a different chassis.

    After going to a local store, I settled on a Logitech Marathon Mouse (dumb name) M705. I'm happy I went to a real store, because I was eying the Performance MX, but that thing's a brick IRL. The M705 has a similar shape, but is more reasonably sized.

    Yeah, buying mice is like buying shoes.
