ZOWIE FK - Page 13

post #121 of 2197
I've used many mice in competitive CS and so far the AM is the one I have used for the last 11 months. It might not be best for everyone. But for me with low sense, claw grip, CS it is the best mouse in my opinion.

That is enough for me to want to try the FK and see if I like the new shape more than the AM.

I am in the same boat. I like the Zowie AM. I also use very low sensitivity, a claw grip, and have really no real complaints about the Zowie AM. I dont mind the "/ \" shape, the low LOD has never bothered me, as I always had the habit of keeping the mouse level on its surface even when flicking it ingame. I also dont mind the switches that are used in the mouse. They are a little harder to press, but at the same time satisfying to use. I dont think it had any negative effects on my playstyle and performance.

So all in all, pretty much perfect for my particular anatomy, grip and playstyle.

Yet I still want to check out the Zowie FK. I mean who knows, it could be better. Then again, larger wider mice (Deathadder for example) were never my preference. Maybe I should just learn to be happy with what I have. It will not improve my skill or playstyle. In fact changing mice too often is actually a disadvantage.

I hate the shape of the AM, it's too narrow to get a decent grip on. FK looks like it has a much better grip, I'd still like to see some reviews before I buy it though.

Wonder if they finally fixed the unstable 500hz setting, performance should be adequate for low sens players when paired with a red pad like artisan hien, i also wonder if the brand new zowie G-TF "rough" makes zowie 3090 mice skip, not that i really care since it has the same crappy base as G-TF "speed"

They seem able to hit 500 for me. Evo can reach 500Hz and the AM is over 500Hz. Remember that the rate is dynamic -- based on the amount of input.

The G-TF should work fine. Any consistent surface (single color) that isn't very reflective should work.

Sucks they are not releasing a white version right now. Maybe in the future. I would have to buy the black rubber... not cool.

I never really looked at the polling rate of the AM/AM-GS or EC2 eVo, they all feel the same.

I use 1000hz, don't feel a difference between 500 or 1000, also some claim that it has higher tracking rate on 500? I personally tested it by swiping it quickly and it doesn't malfunction on the SS NP+ on either settings.
