It's steep but my carpal tunnel was becoming severe which kinda surprised me as I am barely 30 years old :- ). If I want to keep using PC this is little investment to save my health.

Does new logitechs became so bad? I hardly can believe it. I'm using logitech marathon mouse, which is 7+ years old now and it still serves me pretty well. Yes, i had to resolder click microswitchers (originals lasted about two years, replacements even less), and rubberized plastic is worn to the extreme, but appart from that, this rodent endures my abuse remarkably well.

I've found that carpal tunnel seems to be more related to the height of your work surface than the actual grip. Never tried a vertical mouse, but some others, and in the end I came to the conclusion that I held my mouse to high up so now I have a little ledge in front of the screen that holds both the keyboard and the mouse, which made a dramatic difference.

And that is very much the crux of it :- ) Switchers were the bane of MX range for years but I believe it's better for the latest models (still, they went very fast from MX Performance to Master and Master 2S).
I don't think majority of users have patience with fixing the inner hardware.
Still, this stuff is covered by warranty for most part so I wouldn't consider it a deathknell. Logitech is still the absolute creme de la creme.

Would you care to post a picture of that ? I am having hard time imagining it and I am curious.
But in my case, my wrists already rest comfortably on both keyboard and mouse (and I always used bulky mouses), so there isn't much I can do about my wrist position outside of rotating it. And than made brutal difference.

Im 27 and im yet to experience carpal tunnel thankfully but its a concern because my current workspace is very very unergonomic.

Thanks everybody for contributing your mouse experiences and I was surprised by all the different user preferences everybody has. I dug deeper into several types and in the end I decided to go for the Logitech MX Master 2S.

Price wise (I got it for 79 euros) it isn't the cheapest one out there but this device feels very robust and for me it has a perfect grip, smooth buttons and a fantastic customizable scroll wheel so I don't regret getting it. I've been using it for a week now, but after a day or two I even forgot I had a new mouse and I only felt bad that I waited too long for a replacement of my old wobbly Rival gaming mouse.

There are several options (logitech software) to tweak your mouse to your own preferences, but the default already work well enough for me

So if you need a new one I can recommend this one to give it a try.

I was about to quote Juraj's reply and say something similar.
In my case I had some problems many years ago and then the problems stopped when I noticed that pain in wrists have more to do with the height of the table or desk. And maybe the height of the monitor also has something to do with a pain free position for long hours of work.
Unfortunately I can't say a magic number like: make sure the table is always at 1.25879465 meters from the ground, but it's worth trying and switching things up in case of pain, and do some trial and error.
