Fairly large hands.
Would like a wireless option on the mouse.
Looked into the g900 but feel as though it may be too narrow for my hand.

Thoughts on the G403 prodigy ?
Any other recommendations ?

G403 is almost everything important about the G900 without all the fancy packaging! I actually like the 403 better in feel, but I would try to go to a brick and mortar store and get a feel for a few mice at once, and see what you think then.

i too was in this position, (still am) i am currently using the G502 (the newer type one) and i like it, but it is a bit small for me, however i think im s.o.l in regards to finding a mouse to perfectly fit my hands, theyre just not normal sized... Im a bigger guy and if this helps, ill post my g502 in my hands.it is a decent sized mouse, if its not to your liking, the Steelseries sensei mice are decent size...FWIW

You should also take into consideration what kinds of games you play. If you want a ton of programmable keys etc. based on your game preferences.

Personally I go with simple mice. I've been a fan of the Razer Deathadder, Chroma etc series mice.

I had a Roccat Kone XTD. Really nice mouse. Large and has weights included to make it feel heavier.

Tip: That site^ is great for refurbed products. All come with a 1 year warranty. I have bought numerous items from them (just gaming stuff, keyboards and mice), all were like new.

Okay so I bit the bullet and bought the G403. It appears to be the best mouse for my needs , based on reviews and hand fitment tests. I have had the TORQ X5 by EVGA for over two years and the cable drag and feel is starting to really annoy men. Doesn't help much in overwatch either.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

I bought a G700s that had some issues, so Logitech replaced it with a G900 after three months of waiting. Unfortunately it's one of the worst mice I've ver used. Way to narrow and it gives me RSI after a very short time of use. Managed to get hold of a G500s which is a lot more comfortable.

Did you get the wireless/wired one? The regular wired is only like 50 bucks wireless one is in the 70s I think but that's a pretty regular price for a better gaming mouse

I got the wireless one. The wireless on is 100$, but I got it for 80$. Lasted 20 hours of continuous use, great range, and charges very quickly. Very happy. Use the mouse predominately for overwatch and have noticed an improvement in gaming capabilities.

Ahh, you already bought a mouse :) I was going to suggest Logitech Triathlon M720 . It's the successor of the M705, the best productivity mouse on the cheap side I know. The thumb button is SO convenient for photo-software work or Sketch Up or whatever software you use. From the many many mice I've tried, I just come back to this design for everyday use and work, so good in my opinion.

I have fairly large hands for a gamer (229mm thumbtip to pinky tip-203mm wrist to middle fingertip), and use the G402, which is slightly larger than a 403 except 2mm less height, and IMO it's a small feeling mouse.

The only reason I'm using it is it's what they replaced my prior Logi with that went out before the warranty was up. Plus I use Logi because they're one of the smoothest, and most reliable optical mice, but I would rather have something larger.

The wireless on is 100$
Some stores sell at that expensive price but I've seen it for 60$ - $70 , if I recall correctly it's $80 right now on Amazon(when it was new it was $65 on newegg),personally I don't see that much value in it,for it to be $100 when the G503 is only $50-$60 bucks, but I suppose some people are willing to pay an extra 30 or $40 over a mouses value for wireless technology.

It's definitely a good looking mouse and from what I've heard it's a great performer so u made a good choice

The M705 - yes, it's a good fit for me. The M720 - I haven't tried in person. It looks similar, so I just think it should be alright as well.
