I finally found Elecom/Deft they are in Japan and make a good mouse actually they make several trackball mice .  I have been using their cordless pro and what they call Huge.  Both are very nice  and not bad price either.

trackball mice

If you like trackballs, take a look at Trackball Mouse .org reviews (if you haven't already).  One caveat; amongst others, he likes the Kensington Expert Mouse.  It's a big device.  You need quite big hands to be really comfortable with it.

I have seen where Elecom has both large and small sizes.  I have the Huge and it is a stretch for me.  Thank you for the link to the trackball site ,  that is a wonderful place to visit.  I have used trackballs for years after elbow surgery.

My Logitech MX Master series mouse is amazing. I used to be a huge advocate for trackballs, and likely still would be, if it weren't for the multi-system support of the MX series.

I am trying the Logitech Mx Master 2 and 3.. Both are good enough.
I've been using a 2s for years. The only thing I don't like about it (still) is the angle of my hand while using it. Coming from using a vertical mouse, it took some getting used to and still causes me some discomfort.
The back and forward buttons on the Mx Master 2 are much worse than they were in pervious models -- they are tiny and on top of (overlapping even) each other.  The MX Master 3 are much more reasonable.  For that reason alone the MX Master 3 gets my vote by a mile.
Those are my copy/paste buttons.  :D
The wheel is very strange how once you start rolling it it just goes on forever.. I'm still getting used to it, but I could take it or leave it.
I like how it has 2 of them. I use the side wheel as volume control.
If the battery life holds up I'll be satisfied.

I get pretty good batter life on mine, and I like how you can still use it while it's charging.
