I'm a Logitech man, but at this point, I'm willing to look at other options. I used to be a very competitive gamer, and I'm looking to start getting back into that. I used an MX518 for a long time, and really liked it. I tried out a Logitech G5 (version 1), and couldn't stand that it only had a back button rather than a back and forward (as I use those for leaning in FPS games), so I stuck with my MX518. Once the G9 came out, I took the plunge, and aside from it being slightly uncomfortable (as I have big hands and LONG fingers), I liked it overall. I liked the "Wide Load" grip for the extra mouse foot, thumb rest, and the grippy feeling. The coating came off, so I threw it out, and have been using the other grip. Now, the mouse wheel kinda catches at one point every revolution, so the hyper scroll wheel really doesn't work, and that's driving me NUTS, not to mention it skipping a mouse wheel click while gaming. Should I try to get a hold of a new G9 or grab a G5 v2 (the blue version, which has a back and forward button)? Or is there another mouse that would suit me nicely?
