That claw grip is wrong
The clawing should be touching the edge of the mouse, like your fingers are in front of the mouse and on the edge. (Of course on a lot of mice you can't actually do this, the abyssus you can)

i claw grip

I do fingertip but still use my palm a bit, basically fingertip without using a stupidly small mouse.

I'm forced to use Fingertip Grip. When I do the Palm Grip, my fingers stick too far out in front of the mouse.

Jiggly is exactly right. That diagram is wrong (which didn't come as a surprise to me, it is Razer afterall) but I use the G700 and you can claw grip superbly with that mouse. I prefer the fingertip style though.

I was going to say the same. No one really claw-grips with a Razer mouse. More so with Logitech mouse like G9/9x.

I have a RAT 7 and none of those diagrams really apply. I guess finger tips would be closest.

Oops, accidentally voted for fingertip. I meant to vote for palm. My fingers are short which equals to "small" hands. So I have no problem with my fingers shooting over the two buttons.

Fingertip, although sometimes my palm rests on the mouse too.

palm, I just noticed my fingers are longer than the buttons, i press them down with my finger joint, not my finger tip. Feels comfortable anyway.

The Lachesis depresses in middle of the mouse buttons so it is kind of clawy depending on how you hold it.

I use Claw. Don't understand palm/tip grip, they seem bad for aiming.

Palm and Logitech mice are perfect for that.

Palm Grip. although imo since theres not much movement my had gets stiff really quick :p

Fingertip, gives me faster control when I need it. Palm means too much arm movement and makes your arm tired fast. I would imagine most use fingertip if they play FPS games at all

o_0 ? with a palm grip you pretty much never use your arm, just wrist.

Depends on your sensitivity, mine is pretty low so to move fast with a palm it's easier to use my whole arm. Meh, I dunno, I switch in and out depending on the game

I use a palm grip and 360 in a game with a flick of the wrist. I never move my arm.

Fingertip, feels more tactile.

I use my testicles.

fingertip with a little bit of palm for rest or lazy movement.

I use a Logitech G500 so I'm forced to go palm. Most of my hand's contact with the mouse is emphasized on the index finger bone, that has the most weight on the upper part of the mouse. The rest of the mouse, the bottom, is weighted by the bottom part of my palm, which efficiently stabilizes it and helps me move the mouse where I want it to go.
