TL;DR: The G-Wolves HS-K Plus is the best mouse designed for fingertip grip. The Razer Orochi V2 is the best value fingertip mouse and is available here.
If you’re looking for the best mouse for fingertip grip, you need to look for four main features:
- Shape: you don’t want your palm coming into contact with the mouse.
- Weight: heavy mice are harder to use when gripping with fingertips.
- Side buttons: clicking with a roll of the thumb is essential.
- Grip: a slightly more coarse coating can help with fingertip control.
I’ve included my favorite gaming mice for fingertip grip below, along with reasons for each recommendation so you can work out which one is perfect for you.
|2.4GHz||27 hours||Yes, USB-C||Kailh GM 8.0|
This a right-handed, egg-shaped mouse that works excellently with a fingertip grip. It’s made by Fantech or Teevolution depending on whether you’re in the US or Europe.
The Aria XD7 has the best internal specs of all mice in this list, boasting a PixArt 3395 sensor and Kailh GM 8.0 switches on the mouse 1 and 2 buttons.
If you’re not a fan of holes, the mouse ships with swappable backs which allows you to change to a slightly heavier solid alternative. However, if you’re playing with your fingertips, the holes on the XD7 shouldn’t come into play anyway as they only feature on the top of the shell.
The potential downside of the Aria XD7 for fingertip grippers is buttons that slightly overhang on the sides. If you like to rest your fourth or pinky finger next to the mouse 2 button, this may not be for you.
G-Wolves HSK Plus
|2.4GHz||No official listing||Yes, MicroUSB||Zippy|
The G-Wolves HSK Plus is the only mouse dedicated to fingertip grip that I’ve shortlisted. Other mice are great for gripping with your fingertips but also allow for a claw grip, or a hybrid of claw and fingertip. The HSK Plus does one thing and does it well.
Weighing just 38g and having the ideal shape and side button placement, the G-Wolves HSK Plus is our number one pick for fingertip grip.
It has no overhanging buttons, a feature that multiple mice in this list cannot replicate.
It’s not the perfect mouse; it uses outdated MicroUSB charging, for example. But then again, so does the G Pro X Superlight, our number one recommended gaming mouse for such a long time.
It’s available in a variety of colors – we got it in pink, but you have options if that’s not right for you.
Razer Viper Mini
The Razer Viper Mini is an ambidextrous, small, light and cost-effective mouse.
Its small weight and size, combined with a coarse coating, make the Viper Mini an effective fingertip gaming mouse.
This is a great option if you’re looking for an ergonomic shape rather than an egg shape.
There’s also no need for batteries or recharging because the Razer Viper Mini is a wired mouse, and is the only wired selection in this fingertip round-up.
Razer Orochi V2
The Razer Orochi V2 is the best value for money mouse for fingertip grip in my opinion.
The small, egg-shaped mouse has a grippy coating that feels comfortable to use for hours on end.
The downside to the 18,000 DPI Orochi V2 is the requirement to use batteries – you can choose to use either an AA or AAA battery – but this does give it the benefit of a long battery life compared to a rechargeable wireless mouse.
It doesn’t use optical switches which could put some users off, but it’s a safe, reliable pick for right-handed gamers.
Logitech G305 Lightspeed
The Logitech G305 is a modder’s dream. Ignore this selection if you have no interest in modding and don’t want to customize a mouse to make it work for you, but it has potential.
The G305 is far too heavy to be a good mouse for fingertip grip by default. It also has plastic feet that struggle to glide across any mouse pad.
Despite these obvious negatives, there are lots of simple tweaks you can make to improve it. I attempted similar with my Logitech G703.
You can add PTFE feet, you can swap out the battery, and you can shave 20-30g off the weight overall.
Why would you go to all that effort? Because the shape is great for fingertip grip.
The G305 Lightspeed has an egg shape – a fan favorite for this grip type – but no button overhang. This gives you space to the right of the mouse 2 button to rest your fourth or fifth fingers.
Xtrfy MZ1 Wireless
|2.4GHz||75 hours||Yes, USB-C||Kailh GM 8.0|
The Xtrfy MZ1 Wireless is by far the most intriguing inclusion in this list, and was designed by YouTube reviewer RocketJumpNinja.
The MZ1, and now the MZ1 Wireless, was designed for claw and fingertip grip but approaches shape in a totally different way to other mice in this market.
This mouse is very flat and thin. Its hump at the rear raises sharply but is still on the low side compared to other mice in this review.
It comes with a number of replaceable backs to help change the shape to your liking. Sadly, the holes on the sides might be uncomfortable depending on your hand size and exact grip.
Internally, the Xtrfy MZ1 Wireless is similar to the Aria XD7, with crispy Kailh GM 8.0 switches and a great sensor. It also reaches 75 hours of battery life and charges quickly via USB-C.
This is well worth a try if you can’t find the right fingertip mouse for you, though some of the other choices would probably be wiser if you’ve not tested them yet.
