What kind of mouse grip do you need?
We game a lot here at Wireless 1. It’s important everyone gets familiar with the way they hold their mouse, also known as your “mouse grip”. Here are some example of what different grips there are:
- Palm Grip - The base of your palm rests on the back of the mouse, with your fingers laying on top of it. This is the most common/basic grip that people have.
- Claw Grip – When your finger tips are touching the buttons and edges of the mouse and your wrist is resting on your mouse mat while your palm is disconnected from the mouse.
- Fingertip Grip – This is when you grip the mouse with only your fingertips. Your palm and wrist are elevated. It’s a very good grip for those who prefer to play precision games like League of Legends or DOTA 2. While not exclusive to those games, each to their own on how they prefer to handle their mouse.
Recognizing your grip style is important. In most cases, it depends on the size of your hands. A mouse designed for fingertip grip would generally be larger than a mouse designed for palm grip. So it may be something to consider when purchasing a mouse.
