    ^Like this. My wrist rests on the table/mat and the fingers do all the moving. :)

    Combo of claw and palm when browsing, but when playing an FPS, I will claw grip and really squeeze the mouse between my thumb and ring/pinky fingers. I pivot with my wrist, and usually prefer to have a good portion of my arm resting on the table. I play with high sensitivity, and will pick up my mouse to reposition it if necessary. I use a Deathadder Black Edition and a Destructor mouse pad.
    Altered and casual swift say thanks.

    Almost exactly the same here except I use a medium to slightly lower sensitivity when playing FPS's and will increase DPI for everything else. Using a MX518se. (First one lasted 5 years) I hate laser mice! Opticals FTW :rockout:

    I use 2 DPI settings depending on what I am doing. 1200 or 1400DPI gaming normally.

    I didnt really want to write out how I see it but a quick google and I found a guy had wrote the way I see it pretty much.

    I'm more of a clawer, but I wish I was a palmer. Seems like it would be easier on your wrists, and less prone to carpal tunnel. I just can't do it.

    wrist resting on the pad and just wrist and finger movements for control. I guess theres some palming here and there in fast pace FPS games like BC2 and TF2, but not often.

    all on a Razer Goliathus control edition and Logitech G5.

    I palm it.

    when DPI is over 3000, it only takes a small knudge to take the point or crosshair all the way across the screen
