Right now is up to pretty much any company to nail this, I'm looking at finalmouse specifically because they were extremely close
Zowie QC is going down the drain - I mean not only did I receive defective mice from zowie so did my friends (benQ) where the sensor was having all sorts of tracking problems.
If finalmouse can just get their TP shell (or s1 shell, whichever you call it) to be like before just without QC problems (nobody cares if it weighs a little more if that means a more solid construction) and get rid of the braid, also make those 2x2 mouse feet a little more rounded/not so sharp it will in my honest opinion be one of the TOP ambi mice on the market. I'd even argue a lot of pro players would willingly use it. Heck even I would have used the S1 if they weren't so quick to break and felt kind of 'meh' to use (not shape wise)
Also while steelseries did a good job with their 'refresh' they changed their shapes for no reason (unless they actually had a reason?) because I'm pretty sure everyone who wanted a better sensei didn't want the shape to change - and myself I liked the old rival shape better than the new, personally I found even the G403 more comfortable than the new rival 310. The hump feels awkward but the rest of the mouse is actually very solid.. I think steelseries did everything right besides shape - which makes no sense what so ever considering all they had to do was mimic their old shape.. guess they saw the clones and figured 'lets be different' even though they would have had the highest quality version of those and it was their own product to begin with
Idk I just feel like product management or whoever is in charge of mice for companies just make mistakes - or they intentionally always butcher at least one part of the mouse to ensure that users will want to buy another in the future
