Review of the Zowie AM-FG - Page 3

post #21 of 39
Honestly, the switches feel tailored for use in fps games like cs. It's a short travel firm click which is perfect for the kind of firing that the source engine requires. Anyone who is overly concerned about ultra fast clicking probably isn't very good at cs:s. My personal opinion as a low sense gamer with years of previous CAL experience.

I've been using the AM-GS (glossy sides, rubber top) for about a month. Definitely a nice mouse, it feels solid. And it hits all my requirements for light weight, low LOD and enough PCS to not cause me problems. This mouse is definitely a tool built for a specific job. It sacrifices a lot of versatility to get there, but I wasn't looking for a swiss army knife that could fill a lot of roles, just a mouse that could do one thing well.

The firmer switches do take some getting used to. It is great for shooters, intentionally or not, but gave me problems with Diablo3. Took me about a week and either they broke in or I got used to it, not sure.

The new white coating sure gives a good grip. My hand more or less sucks itself to the mouse. I know that I like glossy sides, but I don't know if I can get used to a full-gloss mouse. But for me that has almost no hand sweat the glossy version sure grips a lot better than the rubber one. I found the rubber version to be slippery as hell for a long while before the mouse started to get warm.

Ya, I like glossy.

Don't know if I believe the marketing behind the "special" coating though.

That special coating is just paint with gloss and flake. Yeah curing time could be 24 hours. You have read between the lines.

The flakes could come from minced unicorn. Anyhow, I hope it will last forever.

Dunno what it is but it truely is great, The glossy version the had before didn't provide nearly the same grip, neither does steelseries sensei raw, steelseries kana(white), razer mice glossy sides or any other glossy mouse that I have tried. The glossy metal coating on the sensei is pretty good too but I found that I sweat a lot more on that still the grip wasn't as good
