I was checking out some mouses, and was thinking of getting a new one since my MX518 (which has been great for a long time) is getting worn out and had some stuff get in the laser making it jittery. I've been looking at the Razer copperhead, and Logitech G5..they also have a G9? I don't know how any of those newer ones compare but opinions would be nice! And what type of surface to use for the mouse you recommend..I'm currently using a Steelpad 4S. Thanks in advance! =)

I'm using a Razer Krait at the moment - the shape took a little getting used to at first, but other than that it's a great little mouse.
I am using a logitech mbj58 wired... And a logitech wireless mx1000.... Both do really great....errrr well ..
I'm currently using a Logitech G9 (Razer Copperhead before) And I can tell you, that the Logitech G9 is alot smoother, faster, and confortable than any Razer mouse I've used.
I haven't tried the newer ones though.
Also, note that a good mouse can perform badly under the surface it's on, I recommend a Razer mouse surface for that, the're fantastic.
Yah I'm thinking about the G9, and if i do I'll probably stick to my steelpad 4S, even though it actually wares down after awhile if you tend to stay in the same area. Its a great surface but best with teflon skates on the bottom of the mouse, ultra smooth.
btw, what are the Razer mouse surfaces made of?
Yeah, I kind of feel the movement of mah mouse to be a little "grainy" at times..
Well... it says you don't need a mouse pad with most, but I tend to use them as the surfaces of the desktops rebound the laser back. So that may be where your " grainy " feeling is coming from...
No, I mean physically, the movement feels grainy, as if there's grain under mah mouse.
EDIT: And there's nothing there..
Try varying pieces of material and see how it feels.
I would, if I actually had anything smooth around mah house >:#
