After some research, I finally narrowed down my list:

1.) Razer DeathAdder
2.) Logitech G500
3.) Logitech G5 (v.2)
4.) SteelSeries Ikari


Only ONE of those will I consider purchasing.

My necessities: Thumb buttons, not too sophisticated macros, Easy to work with on 64-bit Windows 7, Good for FINGER-TIP Gaming (or Claw-Grip), and comfortable for someone with long fingers.

im very happy with my ikari laser, i have long fingers too.
its sensitive, be careful with that!
on-board settings (adjustable by a little program (no install))

and +1 to arkadi: try it out in a shop to feel it, if its just isn't right, don't buy it.
 
I have been using a G5 for years now and am quite happy with it.
Doesn't mean it will fit the best in your hand though...
The best thing you could do is take a trip to your local big box store or computer shop and lay a hand on the demo model.

Splendid

Today's a slow news day. I hear the only thing that's happened was something to do with a giant iPhone or something... *shrug*

I'm sorry for not including that my previous mouse was a LOGITECH G5 (v.1). I have used it for years but it has taken quite the beating, so I'm looking for something else. The g5 was indeed a GREAT MOUSE, so im hoping to get either the:

DeathAdder, (More of a Palm Grip mouse, but very ergonomic sized.
Ikari Laser, (Not 2 sure about this, heard its for gamers w/ smaller hands)
G5 v.2 (Same as b4)
G500 (Side buttons are small i heard)
XAI (seems a very complex mouse to use)

Steelseries Xai is a fantastic mouse.

I've tried many, many mice over the years (including all on your list) and to me the Xai is by far the best. Its really in a class of its own.

It is very comfortable, tracks impeccably, very smooth glide (esp. on the SS 9HD pad) and has perfect button placement and action.

I feel like a headshot machine with this mouse, far more accurate that with any other mouse I've ever owned, and I've owned a LOT.

Since you're still shopping, be sure to give it a try.
