Question Need a more comfortable mouse for a righty

Ya'll helped me before in choosing a new vid card (which I still haven't been able to purchase), so here I am again asking for suggestions.

I have what I guess is a claw-grip on my mouse. I seem to by physically unable to just put the mouse under my hand directly in line with the rest of my arm. I am always angling the mouse inwards towards the keyboard. This is beginning to make my wrist and fingers get stiff and hurt after even an hour or two playing games.

I currently own a Razer Deathadder Elite. Love the mouse, the software is a bit flaky lately though.

i need suggestions on something more comfortable for my grip and positioning. It doesn't need 50 buttons on it, something along the lines of what the DAE has. I am attaching pics so ya'll can see what I'm dealing with.

trackball doesn't seem like a good option for gaming.

Wow, this sub-forum seems really dead. No one has any good recommendations?

I honestly have no idea what would fit your grip, and shape is largely preference anyway. Maybe you need a bigger mouse to make it more natural to grip it normally?

As far as brands go I'd recommend Zowie and Logitech.

One of the great things about Zowie is that they don't require any software. There's a button that lets you toggle between different DPI settings, and polling rate is changed by holding a button combination while plugging the mouse in.
