    Anyone know of a good palm-grip mouse? And by palm-grip I mean a REALLY palm fitting mouse like a Microsoft 6000.

    Logitech MX Revolution. You won't find any better than it, you could land a plane on it's thumb rest.

    I got one and love it, works great for everything and is beyond comfortable.

    Well see my peeve is the right side of the mouse. I like having my ring finger and pinky elevated, which claw-grip mice do not do well. How well does it fit your hand?

    Fits my hand well and I don't have a small hand. I'm not sure about any mice having a thing to hold up your pinky. But this mouse has a very secure feel to it, I don't even feel like I'm holding a mouse really, very comfortable.

    G5 or G7 would not be suitable. I need a mouse with a palm grip. I hate having no place to put my ring finger and my pinky.

    ... they DO have a place for the pinky? its the same color as the rest of the mouse so it may not be visible, but its there.

    i consider myself a palm grip user, which is why i suggest it. it only has a small lip for your pinky, while your ring finger sits on the edge of the mouse past the right click button

    That looks like it has good support for your fingers, I'll look into it. Thanks.

    The G5 doesn't look like a palm grip mouse?

    i don't get why there is a need for thumb, ring finger, pinky support? I mean the mouse does sit on a surface so maybe that would be a good place for those, unless it's a really tall mouse. No offense or anything it's just that after so many years of using a pc i haven't once felt the need to rest those fingers. :)

    I use the computer for many hours on end, and I have a claw grip mouse. One day I borrowed my friends dad's Microsoft 7000 Wireless Mouse and I love how it supports my hand. I may just in fact get one.

    maybe its just because it looks small in the images, its fairly large in person.

    our definitions of palm grip may be different
