For those unfamiliar with the three styles:

I think palm grip is most natural for me, but this mouse I'm using now I use the fingertip grip just because it's so small.

I'm personally between a Claw and Fingertip grip. I'll first grab a mouse in a claw fashion, but I will move it around with a fingertip style.

Supposedly, it's the most tiring for gaming, yet I've not experienced that.

I don't consciously think about it, but I tend to do fingertip, but claw when I need to use the navigation buttons (I overwrote their forward/back with shift/ctrl, super handy in games).

Claw makes my hand hurt something fierce after a while though.

Fingertip grip because of, what are those called again? The mouse pads with the rest pads? Because of those, it's easier to use the mouse that way, though I assume most mouses are made with the palm grip in mind.

fingertip but i tend to kinda claw if i'm really actively using the mouse. my middle finger tends to rest closer to the mouse so i can rub the scroll wheel with sort of the "knot" after my digit, but my index finger tends to be a lot more floaty

i will say my hand tends to barely rest on my mouse with only the front of it really coming into contact -- my palm barely touches it if at all

my mouse is relatively small (it's some random cheapo USB logitech) so that's prob influencing the way i hold it. the only time i've really been super huggy with my mice is with big fancy ergonomic mice that my dad occasionally had lying around

I exclusively use a touchscreen! >:]

Somewhere between palm grip and fingertip grip over here. The palm is always touching, but my fingers aren't entirely covering the mouse.

I kinda have bad posture in general. I can't be facing my screen straight forward, I have to be leaned back and turned at an angle with my legs up. I think my mom's the same way at desks.

NANI?

Seriously, claw seems like the most unnatural thing in the world.

I just use palm grip 24/7. My mouse doesn't have a scroll-wheel or even just a middle click, so my fingers never end up moving at all.

I do web design! Check out the stuff I've done here (some of it is unfinished though.)

update: at some point my grip became more claw grippy i guess without me realizing it. i guess ive been transitioning to clawing

clawing doesn't feel that unnatural to me, i used to play super metroid as a speedgame and i've played a lot of dark souls
