i used to use the Logitech G5 mouse which was really good but after using it for about 5 years i felt like a change so i got a death adder which was also really good but right now im using a steelseries xai (same shape/design as sensei i believe) which is also good. i don't find much difference in how each of them felt and they are all good mice (none of them broke btw).
i think it really comes down to the mouse fitting your hand size, pro players usually end up changing their gear when joining a new team/sponsor and it takes a little getting used to but they aren't better or worse because of it.
You know man there's different mice and stuff man, but it all comes down to personal preference man.
If you can get down to a lan and try out other peoples gear that would be rad. <-My main point
Other people will be pluggin their stuff you know, reppin their hood n sponsobut you just gotta be aware of bias, of course they are gonna plug their hardware sponsors :P
Just factor in size, weight and what grip you are using cause it's different for everyone. I've spent a lot of time using the Razer DeathAdder, Logitech G1, Steelseries Kinzu, Steelseries Sensei, Razer Abyssus, Razer Salmosa, Razer Salmosa Progamer Asia Edition (it's tiny), Razer Mamba with cord/without it, Logitech G9x, Razer StarCraft® II Spectre Gaming Mouse and I'm still not sure what I wanna use.
Try not to concern yourself too much about the price of the gear that you are going to buy because if you put it in perspective, if you are an active personalcomputermobiletron user then you will get a lot of use out of a mouse.
But you know that's just my unbiased opinion man, you can do whatever you want with your life.
Steelseries Kana I highly recommend. Costs about 60 bucks and is probably the best priced mouse there is. I've been using it since the start of the year and things are going very well with it, no issues at all.
But that's a personal opinion, the others are recommending other mice here, and the Sensei is something I can vouch for as I have used a friend's one previously and it is indeed a good mouse; it was just too big for the size of my hand so I use the Kana instead.
It was a decent mouse for a few years when I had mine. Recently started acting up though, and I decided to try the SteelSeries Sensei Raw. Lighter, similar size, and glides a lot smoother than the deathadder. I think it's a pretty big upgrade.
There are so many variables that just going for someone else's favourite mouse with no point of reference is a bad idea, though.
I'm thinking of buying that mouse since the size was almost perfect with the deathadder
Windows Sidewinder. Cheap as crap and is actually REALLY solid. Used it for like 3 years and it cost me 20 dollars.
But most people like brands and so on. So I would say try them all out if possible.
I personally use a Razer Deathadder and love it to bits. However I've also heard really good things about Logitech G1 and Steelseries Sensei.

I don't understand why people say Razer's goods suck mine hasn't spoilt in a long time lol. I don't know if most of your opinions are influenced by people complaining that their products are bad. Perhaps it was just a batch of output that was faulty, ever since then nothing else is faulty already.
I like the Razer Abyssus a lot, since it's ambidextrous. Planning to upgrade to a Razer Taipan soon, it looks quite slick also it's green.. once I get my Blackwiidow Ultimate 2013 everything for my gear will be green o.o

I think the most important thing is that it feels right in your hand, so if you can try a few out that's a good idea. Personally I've been using a Logitech G5/G500 for 5 years now and have no complaints; and the mx518/G400 are a cheaper option that's identical other than having an optical sensor, which actually makes very little difference in reality.
