Should I pickup a Roccat Savu since it's such a great deal right now?

I've kinda wanted to get one for a while, but figured I was going to let my current mouse live out it's lifetime (I've noticed the lifetime for these RAT3s isn't very long... I don't feel like getting it replaced again). So I wanted some final opinions before I make the dive and order it.

Here's a CM Storm Spawn at a better deal.

Is it functionally a better mouse?

I got my Savu for $30, so that isn't that great of a deal. More importantly, you want to buy a mouse that fits your hand. I'd recommend trying everything you're considering before buying it. I have the Savu and I don't like the shape.

no

they're approximately the same as far as we can test mice as of now

however I don't recommend only buying a mouse because of price unless you're strapped for money

The Savu is a pretty good mouse, but it has a unique shape. I actually have one and I use it for StarCraft because it has my favorite thumb-buttons I've ever tried

Well this is the lowest I've seen it in a very long time, so it seemed like a pretty good deal to me.

As for the shape, I don't really know of anywhere I could possibly go to try one, so I'll have to trust all the people who claim it's a good fit for fingertip grip.
