ZOWIE FK - Page 119

Not so hard, but you're going to need a dremel and lens from a PAW3305DK-H.

CPI will be cut in half or close to it. I can't guarantee stable functionality.

@ above comment for diameter. I meant magnification, but also relevant to height. Diameter of specific magnification gets larger or smaller vs actual position.

Not sure if I'd really want to risk bricking my $60 mouse. I was hoping it was just going to be a matter of screwing a new one on.

I haven't compared them side by side, but they both seem to have that WMO kind of shape. They both probably have some differences though. The FK and AM are thinner than the WMO, so they might also be thinner than the AM.

Hi Art Vanelay, thanks for your fast reply smile.gif
Is the wmo the same as intellimouse?
Some mates from my work are still using it, and i think it's higher and fatter than xai. I tested it and i could palm it and claw it comfortably smile.gif
The problem with xai for me was, it was too long for claw, for palming it felt uncomfortable, the back of the mouse rest in my palm and i didn't like it:( also the mouse felt lower profile so my hand kind have to make a shell... i'm affraid of buying this mouse and then i don't like it (return polices are bad... they only accept if i buy it online)...

WMO is slightly smaller, IMO feels a bit taller. Neither of them feel anything like the FK and AM imo, they're much more "palm grip" friendly than the Zowie mice in question.

The Xai is larger than the FK, the FK is notably thinner and sits a bit lower than the Xai.
If you didn't like how low and skinny the Xai felt then I don't think you'll like the FK.

Should just get an IMO if you liked the feel of it, nothing on the market really feels like the IMO 1.1.

No. There's the Wheel Mouse Optical (3 buttons), the Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 (5 buttons), and Intellimouse Optical 1.1 (5 buttons).

Yes, I had the same issues with the xai. The contours on the right side of the mouse made it difficult for me to palm grip and would cramp my hand. Overall the FK is a better mouse than the xai, but it still cramps my hand in palm grip due to it's thinness.

They have the wmo at my work smile.gif (3 buttons only) I once tested Am but i didn't like the switches and also the lod, the size, wheight and shape were good, not perfect but good smile.gif... i read red mousepads increase lod and fk's switches are easier to press.. that's why i'm havning some curiosity on testing fk..
Also i keep my eye on roccat kone pure optical but it think it's a little small for my hand... sorry for offtopic..
I tend to claw when i work but for gaming, especially fps i palm tongue.gif

Why wouldn't you want a low LOD? I've found no negatives to it, personally.

The buttons on the AM are definitely a preference thing. I personally like huano switches.
