I don't think that there are better ones available for that kind of switch.

You can solder Omrons no problem, you just have to remove the extra pin. I will try this next week when my WMO arrives.

It's not possible. The right mouse button will not hit the switch because it's in a different position than the WMO PCB. I tried this and sadly it can't be done.

i already knew about different switches location in ie 3.0, but maybe with some hardcore cutting skills...

Has anyone tried putting omron d2f-01fl's into the Kana or AM yet? Will it require sanding down the sticks as thuNDa said they were a few micrometers taller than omron d2fc-7n's?

I think I'm going to do this soon for my g400, I have problems squeezing out one round at a time with my AK in COD4 promod. I never had this issue with my DA 3.5G Black, not sure about the switches used in either though.

Changed the microswitches on my 2nd Zowie AM, getting pretty good at it as it only takes me a minute now.

I notice the D2F-01FLs are a lot nicer to press and are softer compared to the D2FC-7Ns, hard to tell the difference by pressing them with your fingers but once installed, it's a lot nicer.

Applied Steelseries icemat skates aswell as they seem to give a better glide, it's half a mm taller than the proper zowie ones but don't affect tracking at all even with the AM's low LOD.

Nice thumb.gif

Did you have to sand something off of the sticks?
