Go to your local pc shop and wrap your hand around a few its the only way to do it really.

MX 518.... PERIOD!!! I personally own the Deathadder, lachesis, copperhead and some $70 Logitech wireless... by far the 518 is the best considering you have the two buttons easily placed at your convience... I am a veteran of every battlefield, rainbox six through rogue spear..... and a diehard maniac of CS-S... I have been very competitive and accurate with kills. The 518 will incorporate an easy feel to the game if your a righty, if you are a lefty I highly suggest you go with the Copperhead. As for all the Lachesis it has potential but still lacks the easy feel of the 518. As well surfing on the internet using this mouse is great but use this alongside firefox as the addons are awesome for firefox. Another thing you must invest in is a great mousepad and with that I leave you with the RocketFish metal mousepad for great accuracy. Logitech - MX 518 Gaming-Grade Optical Mouse - 931352-0403

this is my setup

i use a G7.
the G5 has a click scroll i think...the G7 does and i believe they are the same with the exception of course that the G7 is wireless.
if you want a wireless gaming mouse, G7 is by far the best IMO.
wired mouse, i agree with poster above me (who obviously works for logitech lol jk) mx 518 or a G5. i have tried the G9 and didnt like it at all.
salty's idea is the best. go hold one.
