Cyborg R.A.Ts

Title obvious, I currently have the Razer Naga and it's pretty sweet in both performance and look but I've heard tell of another sweet set of mice that offer something more for the FPS player. I've recently got more into FPS and am considering it. The fabric on my lapdesk which I use for my mouse has become agitating when pinky or thumb gets caught and I miss my shot because of it. The RATs seem to have a thumb rest, useful or not?

The RAT9 MMO seems like an awesome choice but I don't know a lot about it, does anyone have it? Recommend for a lap desk using gamer?
Should I go for the slightly cheaper, wire RAT 7 with the AIM button? Does the left button on the MMO version work as an aim button or no?

GD on the RAT's please =)

I only have a R.A.T 3 but I am pretty impressed. After using this one I am thinking I may have to go for the 7 or 9 soon. I say go striaght for the top and get the 9! The thumb rest feels pretty good actually. I had forgotten it was even there until you reminded me but now I couldnt imagine not having it.

The 3 is perfectly comfortable. I dont know about the 7 or 9 though. I would imagine they would be pretty similar. Mine isnt size adjustable but I believe the better ones are. The cable is extremely long which can be a little irritating.
 
So I bought the R.A.T 7 and so far my opinion is that it's smaller than expected. Unlike the Razer Naga I usually use, this one feels quite flat, not AS flat as the Alienware Tactx but close. It's not at all uncomfortable though and the customization is a god sent, worked it down to exactly what I want. Loving the thumb and additional pinky rest, Much easier to keep my fingers off the mat when having to move quickly. The software is short and to the point, not issues yet, still playing around with it a bit to make the Aim button work best for my needs. 6400 DPI is waaayyy too sensitive for me, I had to turn it down to 5000 as my preferred. Any questions please ask, don't buy it till you're sold lol...
