Well, I still say the Mamba. The drivers are great for me. Beautiful mouse, very functional and comfortable.

I'd say if Razer have failed you once don't let that happen again. You don't want to spend £100 on a product which your not 100% sure about, plus the Sensei is only £53 at eBuyer. But at the end of the day its your choice.

I'm not 100%sure about Sensei as well. I know that steelseries have great drivers, but it my be to small and to light

I was also thinking about the Rat7contagion, but there is not to many reviews about that mouse, so I dont know how its perform.

Turn windows sensitivity to minimum and you'll see why people buy ridiculous DPI mice

At the end of the day its all about preference. Seeing as your previous mouse was a Lachesis i'm going to guess you use a palm grip to hold a mouse. So i'd say shop around for something with similar weight and size to a Lachesis and one which has been designed around the same grip style too.

EDIT: Just saw Protocol's post after posting this and the Sentinel Z3RO-G has potential. It weighs 160g out of the box but you can add more weights if need be, so it may just be the mouse for you.

That's what warranty is for. You can always return it.

Right, the best thing for you to do would be to run to your local shop and try out several mice there. That's really the best way to go about buying a new mouse, because you'll know it suits you when you buy it. I'd do that over buying a mouse online just because some random guys you don't even know recommend it any day

I would vouch for the Razer Deathadder any day. I have the 3.5G edition and it's fantastic. Low cost, great performance and very comfortable. The Mamba's wired, much less expensive brother. I would say that the Sensei is also a good consideration, but when I tried it hands-on (pun intended) it was a little low-down, flat and big for me. I am only 16 though, small hands!
