    I claw grip all the time no matter what I'm doing. My hands are below average in size and my mice are large. Palming just feels so unnatural to me and it has a lot less fine control.

    Claw grip. I feel comfy using the claw grip for more accuracy.

    I've been using the palm grip on my mx518 since 2005. Lately I've been looking at the G700, as I want a wireless mouse, but I'm a bit uncertain as I've heard some people say it's too tall, and battery life is bad.

    The battery life on the G700 is not long so you will often need to constantly have it recharged at the end of the day via a powered USB port if possible. The grip for a palm mouse is excellent in my opinion if your hands are not large.

    I do a mixture of the two. I use a basic claw grip, but the joints on my ring and little finger rest on the mouse too.

    In all truth, I find that I do vary my grip depending on the scenario. If I'm doing something tricky and precise then I'll quite often end up unconciously switching to a true claw grip.

    Palm with slight hint of claw; G1 mouse. I have the G5 but kind of hate it.

    Also, am I the only one who never actually moves his wrist when maneuvering with the mouse? I use my wrist as the anchor-point instead.

    I dont really care i think.
    I mean if mouse is big my palm have a place to rest but if its small my hand position pretty much doesnt change except for palm is actually hanging in the air.

    maybe dats called "palm grip" but i am really fine if mouse is small as well.

    [edit]
    Ok i just googled this and i was like whaaat?! — do people actually play with their hand forming nice and comfortable triangle in the air, lol
    So i guess i only do palm grip.
