zowie EC2 or deathadder original?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
hey guys im desperately in need of a new mouse. The things i mainly want are no major flaws( like game breaking) and to fit my blue black color scheme lol.

I know a lot of people are performance over looks but i mean why cant I have both tongue.gif?

So basically out of these two mouse, which would you go for? i obviously have chosen them because of the blue led wheels, but which is actually better. btw im fingertip/claw grip.


Also which mousepad would you suggest with both? im in need of a new mousepad as well, and of course, blue and black theme please tongue.gif although i dont mind any kind of whtie at all, but not like green or red or things like that, thanks smile.gif

I actually like both mice a lot. I'm more partial to the deathadder, but the EC1 is in my opinion a great no-frills mouse. Note that the Zowie has prediction, and the Deathadder doesn't (if you get the 3G deathadder, the first style, you can switch it on and off via firmware). I'd personally get the DA because of that, but if prediction doesn't bother you the EC1 is solid.

For the mousepad I'd probably recommend a Puretrak Talent for either of them. It's huge, comfy, durable, and the tracking with those mice is fantastic with it.

Both are extremely solid mice. Can't go wrong with either. Do notice that there is a size difference between DA and EC2. DA can only be palmed (unless your andre the giant), while EC2 is relatively small.

In short, it helps you draw straight lines. Some people like it, some people don't

I don't have huge hands, and I can claw the deathadder with zero issues. It's more than possible to do with average hands.
