If anyone here plays any type of game, they should know about Clearly Superior Technologies new laser trackball. Its adjustable CPI goes from 400, 800, and 1600. I'm currently using one of their trackballs now, which is very nice and easy to move. Has anyone heard about it?

I think that I would never feel comfortable with a trackball. I'll stick with my (awesome) G9.

I've said this a long time ago, probably when the first ball mouse boomslangs got popular. Track ball mice over hand guided mice. Your whole hand is way to clumsy to compete with the finesse of a finger. Don't get me wrong with hardwork and discipline you could own using your foot if you chose BUT the path of least resistance is the key. I tried to switch to trackball for gaming in like 03 but 400-800dpi wasn't cutting it. I am what they call a high sensitivity mouser which explains my foundness of razer not because their products are the best but they were there first for me when I first figured out, hey, I need more dpi... Anyway I cant believe that just as I happen to inquire about trackball progression there happens to be some newer products out. Sweet. 2000dpi would be better but I'd give 1600 a try.
The learning curve is something relative to learning a weird mouse shape like say a boomslang. My mousing techniques usually involve having a mouse thats as light as possible, a mouse pad that has the least amount of stiction and friction and when I get into the groove I can tell that my pointer finger is doing the guiding of the mouse. A trackball would exploit the precision of a finger tip.
The only prob has been lack of precision track balls....
The next step, maybe not logical progression will be "mice" that resemble the motor skill use of a writing pencil having some type of optical sensor on its tip to track movement.
I'm ahead of the curve so my notions will go unheard...
