Best Mouse in the Market for Larger Hands

by Vaibhav

Recently getting into gaming made me come to a realization. I may qualify for NBA but finding the right mouse to fit in my humungous palm, is damn hard. So if you’re confused and if you’ve huge hands like mine, filtering through all those options can be exhausting.  Here is a list of the best mice you can buy if you’ve huge hands on Amazon.

How do you measure your hands?

  1. Take a measuring tape or scale.
  2. Measure from the tip of your middle finger to the base of your palms.
  3. Now simply use the outcome and compare it to the chart.

I tried the same and my hands measure 21(length) x 11(width) Inches, which falls in the extra-large category. Let me know yours!

Length Size
Under 6.7 Inches Small
6.7 to 7.5 Inches Medium
7.5 to 8.3 Inches Large
8.26 Inches and above Extra Large

Note: Mouses are made for left-handed and right-handed users. If you want a mouse that can work regardless of that, go for an ambidextrous mouse like the Logitech G pro

1. CORSAIR Glaive

A lot of gamers have felt the need for a big gaming mouse and with Corsair Glaive, you get excellent ergonomics which can further be customized. If you’ve gigantic hands, fearing the mouse will be too small for your palm should be the least of your worries. It measures, 4.95 x 3.6 x 1.75 Inches which is awesome (at least for me). It comes with RGB lighting, which is ribbon-like on each side. This really helps to figure out which profile I’m working on in a glance.

The Glave features three removable side panels for more grip styles. The side panels enlarge the thumb grip. As you move to the bigger side panel, you get a better-textured thumb grip for more support. While most of the features contribute to its success, the weight might put you off a bit. The mouse without any extra side panel weighs at 120 grams which might be heavy for some users. Nonetheless, it comes with a 100 DPI to 16,000 DPI settings, so you won’t be missing any headshots.

2. Microsoft Pro Intellimouse

It’s the only gaming mouse in the entire list that doesn’t exactly look like a gaming mouse. On contrary to the small size, it packs a lot under the hood. It comes with a PixArt PAW 3389 PRO-MS sensor, which is customized just for this specific mouse. In terms of dimensions, it’s fairly large at 5.19 x 2.9 x 1.7 inches which is great for extra large-sized hands.

Microsft Intellimouse

This mouse doesn’t pack a lot of buttons. There are only 2 side buttons that can be customized.  The DPI can be set at as low as 200 and can go up to 16,000 (overkill). It also supports RGB which is like a tail-light and quite unnecessary. I’ve already lost a few mouses due to non-functional mouse cables over time. I’m thankful to see that the Microsoft ones comes with a braided cable. If you are into traditional gaming mouse feel and look, this is not something for you. You should only go for it is because it is a workhorse and as Microsoft pointed out, it sure is the return of the classic!

3. Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed

Razer Basilisk is a toned-down version of the Basilisk Ultimate which is a far more expensive alternative. This version eliminates certain aspects to cut down the price. For example, there is no RGB lighting support and it runs on a single AA battery. Whereas, the Ultimate version is rechargeable and can run up to 100 hours. Another key difference is that the Ultimate one comes with a sleek charging dock, fancy right? Similar to every mouse in this list, even the Basilisk comes with 16,000 DPI. It’s fully configurable using the Razer Synapse tool and each of the 6 programmable buttons can be customized.

The most appreciating fact is that the Razer Basilisk comes with onboard storage. So, all the configurations are stored on the mouse and you don’t have to configure it with every new connection. Moreover, there are 2 modes that can be used to connect the mouse. You can either connect via Bluetooth which gives up to 450 hours of usage or via Wi-Fi which provides a decent 250 hours.

4. Steel Series Rival 600

The first thing that you’ll notice about the Steel Series Rival 600 is its looks. Although the main body is made up of plastic, it has a textured rubberized top for better grip. The RGB strips come out from the top buttons and are recessed to the sides. This mouse also has removable side-grips like the CORSAIR Glave to provide a narrower mouse size. What’s peculiar is that the mouse has two sensors rather than one. First is a TrueMove3 optical sensor for accurate tracking and the second is dedicated to depth.

There’s another treat for anyone who wants to change the weight of the mouse. It comes with eight small bars of 4g weights which go at the sides giving you a better range for customization. It also has an impressive Steel Series Engine Software that not only lets you customize the mouse but also set up chat notification from Discord.

5. Logitech G Pro Wireless

Another wireless gaming mouse in the list, but what it offers sure doesn’t let me take it for granted. It is specially designed for gamers from ground-up.  It’s been made by taking in suggestions from tons of gamers. For example, the DPI toggle switch has been pushed to the bottom to eliminate accidental taps. It is ambidextrous so it doesn’t matter whether you’re left or right-handed.

The team who won the inaugural Overwatch League Championship used the Logitech G Pro even before it was launched.

Coming to the specs, it measured at 1.57 x 2.5 x 4.92 inches and weighs about 2.8 ounces. Although it comes with side buttons, they are removable and can be swapped with flat magnetic covers, to get a simpler feel. There are three lights on the top to let you know which DPI settings you’re currently at and the USB receiver is nicely hidden at the bottom of the mouse. Last but not the least, the battery life. It is rated at 40 hours which can be extended to 60 hours without any RGB light.

6. Logitech  MX Master 2

The MX Master 2 is a different take on a mouse. Unlike other mouses that have a flat form-factor, the MX Master has an ergonomic design and a large thumb rest. it comes with a 4,000 DPI which is enough for normal usage but there is a slight bit of latency when you move, so it is not the best fit for hardcore gamers.

Logitech MX Master 3

What exciting is the ability of Logitech MX Master 2 to connect to three computers at once, regardless of the OS. It also works with Logitech flow which I feel is the most interesting feature out of all. You can simply copy and paste files from one computer to another by using just sliding the cursor to the other PC. There is an option to program the buttons as well with pre-defined user profiles for Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, etc. So it’s great if you’re a power user of any of this editing software.

7.  Anker Vertical Mouse

The hand always rests with the thumbs facing up. If you observe a normal mouse closely, you’ll realize it twists your arms, resulting in increased pressure on the wrist over time. To tackle this problem and make the mouse mimic the natural position, we have a weird-looking verticle mouse – the Anker mouse. The mouse is precise for normal usage but if you are a gamer, 1,600 DPI will sure to let you down. There are also scroll buttons on the side, so if you browse the internet often, it’ll ramp up your efficiency. It works with a USB receiver and you need two AAA batteries(not included) to power it.

Anker Vertical Mouse

There are 6 buttons in total and none of them are programmable. There is also no software with the mouse, so it’s simply a plug and play setup. If you’re looking for a cheap vertical mouse, try this one. Else if you are ready to spend more, you can also look at the Logitech MX Vertical which comes with rechargeable batteries and can connect up to three computers at once.

Closing Remarks

There are always specific markets that aren’t served well by manufacturers. Someone with big hands wanting to play some games shouldn’t be left disappointed. While the offering is few in comparison to others, all the products listed above are great and wouldn’t disappoint you. However, if you’re planning to shift to a wireless option, Logitech G Pro is a great option. In terms of wired, I’d choose the Microsoft Pro IntelliMouse for almost any type of gaming and it’s a simple design. If you’re looking for a cheap, Corsair Glaive is a perfect fit for large hands with extra thumb grips. I hope you find a good fit for your hand and if you come across something I should add to the list, do leave a comment!
