    I have no clew what these positions are. Is there like a karma sutra for mice, or something like that I could refer to for guidance?

    Razer also has an article on this. If you click on the link to each type you can get more pics and more in-depth paragraphs about the types.

    walls, my pinky drags on the desk. i never noticed till you pointed it out.

    that vid makes me more of a "claw" type, but my mouse is palm-sized for comfort.

    I've been using this mouse for everything for the past 6 or 7 years. Logitech - Trackmanâ„¢ Marbleâ„¢ Trackball

    Yes, I play cs with it lol. Since it's a trackball mouse, I guess you can say I palm my mouse? I rest my entire palm on the mouse with my thumb left clicking and my ring finger right clicking. I move the ball with my index and middle finger. Don't ask me how I do it, I've been playing with it for a long time so I'm just used to it. I never move my arm or hand, just my fingers haha.

    I sorta combo all three but more of a fingertip/palm method but my hands are pretty big so i can't really palm my deathadder without my hand dragging.

    I used to palm grip regular mouses but when i got my deathadder i swapped to a more fingertip/bird claw grip. took me a good year to fully adjust
