Best Gaming Mouse for Large Hands

Continuing on from our post on the best gaming mouse for 2017, we’ve decided to specifically focus on what is the best gaming mouse for large hands.

Obviously, we will be taking into consideration all of the technical factors such as DPI, features, connectivity and price.

However, we will be placing a great amount of emphasis on which design suits large hands the most.

PLEASE NOTE: We are constantly updating this buyer’s guide so make sure to check back soon.

So without any further delay, let’s get right into it.

1. Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum

Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Review

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum is nearly identical, in terms of features, to the older Proteus Core model.

Coming from someone who has relatively large hands, I can categorically say that having adjustable weights in a mouse is fantastic and improves the experience tenfold.

That’s why when testing out the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum I was pleased to find out that it has an adjustable weight feature and I could modify it with five 3.6 gram weights if I wanted to.

This made the mouse feel very sturdy when using it which in turn allowed me to confidently glide it across my mouse mat when the heat of the moment, during a gaming session, came about.

While this may not be the largest gaming mouse on the market, it definitely feels right when using it with large hands. This comes down to the button layout present.

Logitech has done a great job in making sure that the button layout is absolutely on point, more specifically I want to highlight just how comfortable the side button placement is.

Having textured side grips also help someone with large hands easily hold on to the mouse even when sliding it across the mouse mat at high speeds to get that quick frag on CSGO.

The G502 Proteus Spectrum also comes with two different scroll modes that allow you to either have unhindered scroll functionality or a notched scroll, this is entirely dependant on your personal preference.

A vital part of the design is that you can use it with either a palm or claw style grip. How you can grip a mouse is absolutely essential to users who have large hands as some will only be able to use one style of grip.

Overall, the reason why we have chosen this mouse as the best one for large hands is simply down to how it feels and not just about what functionality it has.

Everything about the G502 just feels right and no button or bump feels like it’s out of place.

2. Mionix Naos 7000

Mionix Naos 7000 Review

The Mionix Naos 7000 is an absolute monster of a gaming mouse, coming in at an inch wider than the average gaming mouse we have reviewed in our top 10 list, it really is the ideal product for gamers with large hands.

While the majority of readers will not be disheartened by the fact that it’s not suited for a claw grip, you will be pleased to know that it was by far the most comfortable palm grip gaming mouse that we have reviewed to date.

It features a rubber coating which allows you to maintain a  firm grip at all times even when gaming sessions start to get a bit intense and your hand becomes sweaty.

Taking a step back from the ergonomics of this mouse, technically speaking it’s just as impressive.

The Mionix Naos 7000 is boasting an ADNS-3310 sensor which is arguably the best mouse sensor on the market.

For the avid gamer that requires an unfeasible amount of customizable lighting, you will be pleased to know that this mouse comes packing with a wide range of options that should easily be adequate.

It’s not even expensive, in fact, it’s an incredibly cheap gaming mouse and will CURRENTLY only set you back a mere $39.99 on Amazon US, however, we expect that this is a sale price and may change back to the RRP of $54.00 anytime.

Overall the only reason why we did not award the Mionix Naos 7000 mouse as the best gaming mouse for large hands is simply because the build quality was not up to the standard which we saw from the Logitech.

Positives
  1. Ergonomic design makes palm grip incredibly comfortable
  2. Highly customizable lighting to suit your aesthetic needs
  3. Huge mouse, absolutely perfect for gamers with large hands
  4. Utilizes one of the best mouse sensors currently on the market
  5. Large amount of grip through the rubber coating present
  6. Great value for money (budget gaming mouse)
Negatives
  1. The mouse wheel at time does feel a bit loose and wobbly when trying to use it
  2. Build quality could be better
  3. Awkward to use if you do not use a palm grip
  4. Can be a bit too large even for users who have large hands

3. Logitech G700s

Logitech G700 Review

Next on our list is a popular wireless gaming mouse, the Logitech G700 Rechargeable mouse.

Let’s mix it up and start off with the weight of the mouse which comes in at an impressive 5.2 ounces. This is largely from the rechargeable battery that it uses.

The technical measurements for this mouse are 1.9 inches (H), 3.3 inches (W) and 5.1 inches (D). The G700 has been ergonomically designed to fit in your hand comfortably, although currently there only is a right handed version available.

While you may have some concerns due to the fact that this mouse is wireless, we can assure you that whilst we were reviewing it across various popular video games such as League of Legends, CSGO, DOTA 2 and Skyrim, we experienced no drop in connectivity or inconsistencies between cursor movements.

If you’re someone who loves to tinker around with their wireless gaming mouse then oh boy do we have a treat for you. Quite simply, the Logitech G700 series comes packing with a whopping 13 different controls, eight programmable G-keys, a toggle switch to adjust your DPI setting and finally another toggle switch that will allow you to change the scroll mode for the scroll wheel.

Never have we quite seen this amount of customizable features on a gaming mouse.

An adjustable DPI range between 200 and 8,200 DPI allows you to personalize your gaming experience to exactly the right setup.

It’s also a very budget friendly gaming mouse so you won’t be breaking the bank for this product.

Overall the size is pretty ideal for gamers with large hands and for the price and the numerous features that you are getting it’s just a no-brainer from us.

Positives
  1. Highly customizable with access to 13 different buttons, 8 of which are programmable G-keys
  2. Sturdy build quality that stands up to long and strenuous gaming sessions
  3. Ergonomic design is ideal for gamers who use a palm or claw grip
  4. Can be used as either a wireless or wired gaming mouse
Negatives
  1. Is quite an expensive mouse when compared to other mice we have reviewed
  2. Quite heavy due to its wireless capabilities, ideal primarily for people with larger hands
  3. Can feel a bit odd sometimes due to the materials used
