Update: I've been using the Razer Deathadder for a week or so now and it's amazing. The controls is so much smoother than those crappy MS mouses. So I'm also going to try the $80 Taipan. It has 9 buttons and I want more buttons for battlefield. I use gadget 1/2, grenade, knife. Maybe even steady scope.
Many left-handers sell out and just learn to use the computer with the right hand. Well screw that. I just have chosen mice that are generic and can be used by either hand. I've always wanted the better mice, but can never get them to make one for left handers.
I've always used these mice: Microsoft IntelliMouse. I've been using it at least 10-12 years. I bought 3 of them. One at work finally gave out, it still works but disconnects every 1-3 mins. So I discovered they have:
Razer DeathAdder Left Hand Edition - 5-btn Mouse - Wired - USB - I had them buy me one. I do use left button for click and right button for right click. So by default they had that reversed, they also reversed the two extra buttons. But after I fixed it, it's pretty good.
For home I was thinking about: Razer Taipan, for $80. But I really am trying to not spend money right now after all the aquarium stuff added up.
There's also: Steelseries sensie for $80-90 but it seems like it kinda sucks vs the razer ones.

|Most of my lefthand friends really enjoy the trackball. I was really close to switching because you don`t have to move anything, just your thumb. If I didn`t game I would easily use the trackball over a mouse. |

|I've always been impressed with the Razer mice. They are very conscious in how they design them and if you get a left-handed design from them, you'll be happy.|

|I despise track balls. |

|I have the Sensei. I`m not a fan of the glossy chrome finish. Better to wait for the cheaper Raw version that will have a matte finish (or gloss if you like crud accumulating on your mouse). I only got this because my Xai died and I needed similar ASAP.|

|those microsoft mice are the best money can buy imo, i've owned 3 in about the same time you have, and for the last 5 years i've had laptops that i use my mice on to game in a recliner so the mouse is constantly falling on the ground when i'm not using it and still only on my 3rd|

|I refuse to conform myself on everything as a leftie but right-handed mice feel natural to me because your left hand finger dexterity is important on the keyboard. Moving the mouse is more of a function of the arm than the hand. |
This is also why I can't use a numpad and use the number keys on top of the keyboard about as fast as people use a numpad.

|left handers have no soul. neither do gingers. Left handed gingers are literally worse than hitler.|

|Death Adder owner and I love it. I have much less hand pain than I used to when I was using mice for right handers.|
