If anything it will be fulfilled by Amazon for GameJava. GameJava is located very close to Zowie Gear. So they are the ones to sale the Zowie mice to the US. The cheapest way to get the FK will likely be fulfillment by Amazon.

I will try this mouse. don't got many options if I wanna play with my strong left side again.

I really hope it's worth it. the changes seem to be small compared to the am, but maybe I get surprised with the final use experience. XD

Unbelievabe. I searched the whole net for one decent optical ambidextrous that is not made for Sissies and what I did I found? Nothing but mice for Sissies.

Zowie FK is my next but not last hope.

we will see. XD

The Problems I got with the FK are its minor Changes. Ofcourse Shape is a important Point, but you almost can't even call it a real Change compared to the AM.

I mean maybe they will place the Switches better in the FK that it's so good to press like a EC1 evo, but we will see.

You know I understood what they meant with the old A Construction of the AM and the new V Construction of the FK but if you look at the FK for real, it seems to be a bit laughable.

And propably I will invest in this Crap again and again, because of the very few real competitive ambidextrous Options on the market. Especially with Hands which aren't small. ^^

Give me one ambidextrous with Logitech G400 Dimensions or a G400 left Hand Edition and I will buy almost a dozen and play the next twenty years with it.

Also this custom Lens of Zowie known from the AM doesn't seem to be the best Solution trackingwise.

I mean if I look at the Speeds I use it's ok, but I think not for everybody.

Maybe I won't even buy it, invest in a Logitech g710+ keyboard and use it sexy with my g400. I mean i got the option and Ability to do that, even i am still better with my strong left side because of how long i am trained with it, but I could do it.

I will decide tomorrow.

I already bought enough AM's and this isn't more than a AM with one minor Shape Change that hasn't much competitive weight.

The G710+ Keyboard would fit so sexy to my G400 that it would be a pleasure to enjoy it.

G400 also has distortion from custom lens ^_^

g400 tracks better. and this enormous low lod of the am did never match with the shape and grip you gotta have for it.
i was never really convinced with the zowie am.

and the so called fk is nothing more as a AM with a laughable almost non existing shape difference.

that's almsot no improvement at all even if you wanna talk it good and see it positive.

the fk could have been a bomb of a mouse through the right dircetor. i would have done a better job then these guys.

The Zowie-EN would be a bomb of mouse. bad luck for you and me that i am not in the neo position to do that. XD

What I mean in general is switching from a Intellimouse optical 1.1 to a wheelmouse optical would make a higher difference shapewise than in this Zowie AM and FK Case and even that is still a minor Change. I got all these mice here to compare everything.

Quite confident are we? It isn't just a matter of swapping lens and creating a larger tooling mold. There's a bit involved past the basics.


Decisions made while not the best, are at least understandable. Just not the best target audience imho.

Ofcourse I wouldn't be in the Position to care about the specific technical things but I could give the right Directions to create a mouse that's better than this for sure with my basic knowledge.

Give me one week and you get a great shape construction and another one for the internals i would direct to put in.

no question i could do that successful cause I know what I could do and can.

i mean it's like you said, shape haptic is a subjective thing and even internals are to a specific point, but yes I would be confident enough saying my mouse would be a real hit as a director for shape and internals.

maybe i would have to research a lil bit in terms of internals to do the best possible choice but I could for sure.

Even though I've shared personal concerns, you underestimate the knowledge Zowie already has.
