I've narrowed it down to G5 and G9. I have decided not to get G7 after all.

Most of you have seen my previous thread with the G5, G7 and G9. I said I was going to get the G7, but changed my mind. Now what I'd like to know - All about how comftorable it is. I'm worried about that the G5's blue grip thing is uncomtrobable and combined with sweaty hands will swell them up, it just 'seems/feels' like it. (never tried it for real though) Can someone tell me if it's good or not? And then the G9... the shape, and I've heard theres a slight hump between the grip and the mouse, which sounds very uncomftorable, tell me about that too. Keep in mind I have medium-on-the-small-side hands. I have been using the Logitech LX3 Optical Mouse up to this point and it's killing me using a non-gaming mouse for gaming. I play CS:S, TF2, Garry's Mod, and L4D. I am a "palm-grip" user. Thanks!

    I'd go with the G9, were I you. But there's no loss here, both mice are fantastic.

    I went from the G5 to the G9. It was hard to first get used to do to my really long fingers and overall hand's size. However after I got used to it, the mouse seemed a lot more accurate. The MOUSE 1 + 2 button sizing has to do with most of it.

    The G5 feels more like you're pushing and sliding the mouse, making it feel inaccurate like most mice (this includes a few Razer mice as well). However with the G9 a good amount of your hand stays on the desk. You cradle it almost in a lesser of words. Meaning it becomes much easier to aim due to the overall control you have over it.

    This is my opinion though. :D
