I read that the switches felt tactile yet not stiff like the AM's switches, I read that they're like slightly heavier G400 switches, is that about right?
Thanks

I only have the EC1, so I can't verify if you could palm the EC2 comfortably - but just referencing dimensions, you will be able to palm it if you can palm the AM. Switches definitely feel meatier than the G400. But if you didn't know they were Huanos, it wouldn't raise your suspicions. They feel great. Probably my favorite click so far.

One thing I noticed about the sensor is that it's very precise. Occasionally I'll notice that I'll lift the mouse and the cursor is jittering, when this happens there's usually a tiny fiber from my mousepad stuck next to the sensor, when I clean it the jitter is gone. I might have to get a new mousepad. Any suggestions? Currently using a really beat up QCK Heavy.

the ec2 is perfect if you liked to palm the am (I do myself for LG in ql) but thought the 3.0 had a big arse when going for low flick shots (say with rails). Clicks feel the same as the 1.1/3.0 and sound quite similar

so This mouse performs good at all dpi right ? because most of the time there native dpi on optical so is it safe to use any dpi lv when i get his one? Thinking about changing my death adder since its about 3 years old

if you play low sens ( like 50cm/360 ) your best bet is the 450dpi seting, 1150 will give you neg accel if you push it, and 2300 needs raw input / direct input or else you're screwed
2300 is 1800dpi ( avago 3090 native ) with 1.25x magnification due to the custom lens, zowie AM had quite a bit of cursor jitter on this setting, no idea how they managed to get away with jitter this time

what combination of dpi and hz has the highest perfect control speed/malfunction speed and how much is it?

For me it was 500hz and any of the dpi levels

So does that mean that the 1150 DPI step is also magnified or is it native??
