Need a gaming mouse : 5K budget

Hi guys!

I need a gaming mouse to play games casually online, like CS:GO.

Dislikes:
1. Logitech : I already have G304 satisfied with the performance but I don't want to buy another mouse with double click issues. At this point, I am avoiding Logitech Keyboards and mouse.
2. Corsair also has known issues which develops within warranty period or just after the warranty expires.
3. Razer : They were good 10 years but now is just costly fancy looking mouse with very cheap quality. They have optical switches in mouse now, so there is still hope.

Need -
Grip : Palm/Claw
Hand Size : Medium
Warranty : More the better. This is very important. Steelseries doesn't have warranty support in India anymore.

I have shorlisted following
Zowie Mouse FK2-B(1 year warranty)
Glorious Model D(2 year warranty)

Considering HyperX brand also but not able to decide which model.

Please let me know if anyone knows about the warranty support of above mentioned models. Warranty is quite important factor for me!

Update on shortlist :
  1. Zowie Mouse FK2-B (1 year warranty)
  2. Razer Death Adder V2 (1 year warranty) - Amazon.in: Buy Razer DeathAdder V2 Wired Gaming Mouse | 8 Programmable Buttons | 20, 000 DPI Optical Sensor - Chroma RGB Lighting - Classic Black - RZ01-03210100-R3M1 Online at Low Prices in India | Razer Reviews & Ratings
  3. Cooler Master MM711 (2-year warranty) - https://www.amazon.in/Cooler-Master-Lightweight-Ultralight-Ultraweave/dp/B07ZGG7GSY
  4. HyperX PulseFire Haste (2-year warranty) - https://www.amazon.in/HyperX-Pulsefire-Haste-Gaming-HMSH1/dp/B08NSJFNSS

I have the G102 and when the double click issue started I got a corsair and before throwing the logi I dipped it in hot water for a few minutes then kept in under the sun for a day.. it worked fine after that. I have to do this every 6 months ... it is again having issues... but this works everytime for me...

I am reading this first time. Tell me you are joking. Anyway I still have warranty left on G304 so I won't do this.

I have done some research on the mouse. I will update the first post in the morning. Shit wasted too much time in this, it's so late.

Once I got the corsair I thought I got nothing to loose as warrantee on logi ended anyway so I did that .. it has by far worked 3 times.. funny thing is I still use the G102 not the corsair.

I will also dip in hot water once my G304 is out of warranty.

@omega44-xt thanks for the suggesting the Razer Viper Mini.
Is this the one you are talking about? Amazon.in: Buy Razer store Viper Mini Ultralight Gaming Mouse: Fastest Gaming Switches - 8500 DPI Optical Sensor - Chroma RGB Underglow Lighting - 6 Programmable Buttons - Drag-Free Cord - Classic Black Online at Low Prices in India | Razer store Reviews & Ratings

Since I have the budget, I am leaning towards Razer DeathAdder V2 cause of optical switches but the warranty is just 1year. Not sure if it is worth the extra cost?
How robust is your Mini?

@aby geek Thanks for the suggestions but I am avoiding omron switches now. Can't deal with double click issues now. Its really irritating to exchange Logitech mouse every 6 months.

Not a fan of honeycomb pattern because my house is very dusty. But seems like only good value for money option.

Anyone has any clue about warranty service of HyperX and Razer?

And maybe try to use pure distilled water(from chemist) instead of tap or ro water. It would prevent any minerals from depositing in the mouse buttons also as it is non conductive, any traces left would not do much harm.

Most probably dust is depositing between the surface of switch buttons which causes these issues and gets fixed once removed by water.

Guys any idea on the warranty support of HyperX or Razer?
As per old reddit comments, it looks like Acro is handling the RMA for Razer. After checking their website, it looks like they are handling RMA for HyperX also.
HyperX RMA is handled by RPTech listed here on official website

Any idea how is their service?

I think I am pretty much finalized on the Death Adder V2 or Pulsefire Haste. Unless someone mentions the negative experience with either of these mouse.

On amazon razer products are rated 2 stars as they are breaking down fast.
If steel series rival 300 doesnt have omron switches go for that instead.
Ask on India gaming reddit for user experiences of all 3.

My biggest con with Viper Mini is that it's wired. A minor annoyance is that there's no memory onboard to save colour profile, you need Razer's software running for your custom light setting to work.

I bought my Viper Mini from a small seller for 3.4k, from here:
Buy Razer Viper Mini Ultralight | Gaming Mouse | EliteHubs

Some small sellers were selling it for 3.2k. These are some others:
Buy Razer DeathAdder V2 Mini | Gaming Mouse at Best Price in India

Thanks for the links! I will decide between Viper Mini and Death Adder V2. I notice the shape and size of Viper Mini is almost like G304 but I also want to but I want to see how does Death Adder V2 feels in hand because of its shape.
How is the return policy of EliteHub in case there is a issue with the mouse. Or should I stick to Amazon for safe return policy?

Viper Mini is a bit smaller & lighter than G304. I had no problem during transition.

Ok so I went with DeathAdder V2. Its BIG. I already compared the size online with G304 but I was still shocked after seeing the size. But its so light in weight!
I am getting used to it. If I can't adjust then I will return this and go for Viper Mini.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions!
