Default i need a bigger mouse

I have large hands and my right one begins to ache after a long duration of graphic designing from hanging over the edge of my mouse and manuvering it around.

Does anyone know of an 'over sized' mouse? Does anyone else get this problem?

why dont you try one of those pads where you can just draw on them instead of using the mouse to do the drawing. dont remember what they are called, but they might be worth a shot

A decent Tablet woudl run ya at least $200, more depending on exactly how big you wanted it, sensativity and number of interface options (buttons).

I googled it and got pretty much one relevant result (http://www.harrietcarter.com/Detail....prod=6326&sr=1)

Maybe try a trackball or a mousepad with the built-in wrist support

You could try for something like this >

Or yeh, get those USB tablet things you just plug in. That might be beneficial for your graphic work?

But yeah, I've noticed a lot of pephirial companies are releasing smaller mice and laptop-like keyboards. I'm seeing a lot of mini-mouse stuff... I wonder if PC is trying to copy the first iMac's mouse (hockey-puck). :O

From a review on NewEgg:

WIDEGRIP - great for big hands FLAWLESS DESIGN - allows you to use your fingers instead of your wrist which improves acuracy ON THE FLY SENSITIVITY - with this mouse you won't need more then 1600dpi trust me ADJUSTABLE WEIGHTS - love the heavier weights for more control
