    Sometimes when I read mouse reviews, I come across the words "small hands" and "big hands." What's the criteria for having a big or small hand?

    The length of my hand (wrist to tip of middle finger) is about 7.5in-8in.
    The palm width is about 3in. The average length of my fingers is 3in as well.
    Stretching my hands, The width from the tip of my thumb to the tip of my pinky is about 9in.
    I'm semi-skinny.

    What category am I in?

    And for the fun of it, what is your hand's size?

    I think those would generally be considered big hands. Mine are almost exactly the same size, and there are not that many people I've met with bigger hands. So, although they seem about medium-sized to me, I guess they could be considered on the big side as far as relates to keyboards.... :rolleyes:

    Actually, that has alot more to do with technique and flexibility than most people give it credit. My little bro has much smaller hands than I do, and more flexible and he can palm a b-ball alot better than I can. I can do it, just not as good as he can.

    I guess i have large hands. But thats why it boggles my mind how people can actually use cell phones and mini notebooks to type effectivly because the keys are so small.

    But oddly enough i like smaller mice. I game and everything with a microsoft travel mouse. I guess i like the "feel" of it, and the knowledge if i get mad at it i can just crush it in my grasp:p
