Kinzu v2, Kinzu v2 Pro and Kana

post #1 of 1401
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. I started reading this forum a while back, and a few of you have been really nice in providing suggestions, feedback and testing - thus I feel it's appropriate to give a heads up here first. This week we will soft launch a couple of new mice, initially in Asia (I am writing this from Korea). Some regions will get them sooner than others, depending on logistics and other factors, some maybe even as early as next week. In early January we will turn everything on and they should be available globally.

The new mice being released are;

Kinzu v2
Kinzu v2 Pro
Kana

All the mice are optical. Ambidextrous. Several color spins will be released of all versions.

The Kinzu v2 Pro is pretty much based on requests/demands/complaints/feedback from you guys. It features teflon feet and Omron switches. We listen.

Kana uses the same formfactor as Kinzu, but it is 4% bigger overall. That puts it (literally) right in the middle between Kinzu/Sensei in terms of size, for those of you familiar with those shapes. We have upgraded the feet and switches in Kana, also based on feedback from this forum.

I sent units for testing to Bullveyr, Skylit, Derp and Furuya. Received amazing feedback. Like really amazing. We normally focus our testing on competitive gamers, but I was very impressed with the detailed feedback we got from the 4 gentlemen mentioned above. We even found and corrected bugs that might have slipped thru the "pro's". My deepest thanks to those of the 4 who had time to help test, this is something I would for sure like to do again - both for new products but also for new firmware/software releases.

I don't really visit this forum to sell, but I promised you guys to get feedback from people who are both knowledgeable and trusted.. And that now falls on the 4 gentlemen. smile.gif As of December 14th they are free to answer any questions, that was the deal I made with them back then.

I will try to check in as well to answer questions.


Cheers - and thanks for all the great feedback and suggestions.

Finally some info. I will be checking out the kinzu v2 pro. The kinzu v1 has an amazing shape but I absolutely despise the sensor. I'm glad you you also included the omron switches and telfon feet unlike with the original kinzu. (unless you had the pro edition which wasn't available here in europe)

When you say you upgraded the swtiches in the kana, does that mean it features omron switchen too?
I have to say, the kana being in the middle of the pack seems pretty interesting. I've always had the feeling that the xai was too big for me, but the kinzu was a tad to small, even tho' I love the shape, not really bothersome tho'. The kana could be perfect for me.

Any info on the sensor(s) being used and how they perform or do we have to wait until the 14th for that?
I'm hoping on a; No jitter, no acceleration whatsoever, no prediction and high tracking speeds (pcs).

If that's the case, I'll be purchasing on the day of release.

Anyways back to the thread, I have some questions which I hope you're allowed to answer:

- Which sensors are being used in these mice assuming they're different?
- What will the prices be for all these new mice?
- What will the coating be on these mice?
- Will the Kinzu v2 have the exact same shape as the original?
