I've spent the last couple of months trying to find a comfortable mouse and mousepad combo for my desk. I've tried all sorts of recommendations from another forum, but I've yet to find anything that feels comfortable for me. I think part of the problem is that the people in the other thread keep recommending gaming mice, so they want it to be super fast and quick with the lightest wrist gesture: I on the other hand prefer something that doesn't feel like the mouse will fly off, as my gestures are a lot smaller and concentrated.
My current attempt is the G403
mouse and this Steel Series mousepad.
Both were recommended to me in this thread.
The main problem I'm having is that the mouse feels too "slippery". I've tried to constantly adjust the DPI through the included software, but the mouse itself keeps feeling too imprecise and sliding, as if it lacks enough resistance on the bottom to make it more to my liking.
I'm not sure if it's the mouse itself or the mousepad. I don't really have anything else to test the mouse on, but I'm thinking I need a more rugged mousepad to give that extra resistance I need.
So I could still use some recommendations while I'm under the Amazon return window. There's got to be something that doesn't make my wrist strain from trying to keep the mouse movements from feeling so slippery.
P.S. I should also mention that the way I sit on my desk, my wrist sits on the table's edge, rather than hovering in the air. I'm not sure if that factors into what works best for me, but having to "fight" the floaty mouse does cause a bit of strain on my wrist as it slides around the table.
To that, I'm honestly considering one of those titty mousepads, as I hear that they actually do work to keep your wrist comfortable. Fortunately they got non-embarrassing variants
