    Just curious...

    Do you hold it with your palm resting on the body of the mouse and having your wrist elevated off the pad?

    Or do you rest your wrist on the pad and control the mouse with just your fingers?

    Or something different?

    Mix between palming and clawing, but leaning more towards palming.

    I always get better control of my mouse when I claw it. My hand is just too big for my mouse to be palmed.

    CM Sentinel Advance, and I claw more than palm. Max DPI and I lower the sensitivity as needed to keep the precision high and speed manageable.

    I think it has a lot to do with several factors for one what mouse you have along with hand comfort. Combine that with what mouse settings your using such as DPI. I am opposite of Mussels. :/
