The ambidextrous mouse has a symmetry in shape making them suitable for left as well right handed people. But if you are not happy with ambidextrous mouse then you should go for ergonomic designs. The best ergonomic designs available in the market for left handed is RAZER DEATHADDER. Right handed gamer should go for ergonomic design

For the best grip , you should know what is grip style to hold your mice. The grip styles are palm grip, finger grip and claw grip. Based on anyone of the styles you should buy the mouse.

3) What is your play style- DPI rules here
Are you a high sensitive gamer or low sensitive gamer. For a low sensitivity your DPI should be 1600 or low. In low sensitivity you move the mouse over long distance , hence require lot of energy. For high sensitive player the DPI can go the high of 3200 , as it requires less movement of mouse. But controlling high DPI is quite challenging to achieve accuracy. With practise you will definitely like a high sensitive mouses. Another thing you need to know how much mouse is sensitive when you lift from mouse pad. If your mouse is high sensitive i.e is when you lift mouse, the cursor follows the mouse direction-It is not desirable as you will miss for your target. The mouse should be low senitive
