    For non-serious gaming, any mouse that you find comfortable is good enough.

    G500 sucks, IMO. Uncomfortable, heavy, clumsy. Check out G400 instead, $34. A lot of people find it very comfortable.

    What mouse mat do you have? I find that having a good mat is one half, a good mouse the other half, when talking about comfort of use. I prefer large, thick cloth mats.

    I actually don't use a mat. I just use the top of my desk in my apartment which is plastic.

    You will see a massive improvement with a decent cloth mat. The resistance gives you lots of additional control for small movements. As to the mouse I would go relatively simple. The g400 has a near flawless sensor and a classically comfortable shape. Or a zowie AM if you like a flatter more Microsoft optical sort of shape.

    What grip do you use?

    I'm not quite sure.

    I have small hands so I believe a "claw" mouse would let me palm it. I have been using the Diamondback for the past 6 years too.

    I would also suggest that you have a look at the G400. It is very comfortable.

    Any good large thick cloth mat for pairing with the G400?

    Don't bother with the cobra one. I bought one of those and it was 100% complete crap.
