ZOWIE FK - Page 16

post #151 of 2197
I have never posted anything before on this forum. I usually just read up on upcoming mice.^^

Anyway I got the Zowie FK for three days now and wanted to let you guys know what i think about it.
I got the FK coming from a Zowie AM. I also have an G5, G400, G9x and sensei raw.

The mouse feels like a combination of the AM and the Sensei. The sides feel just like a Sensei.
It really does help with picking up the mouse and I prefer it to the AM.
Just to be clear, I have no issues at all with the shape of the AM, its a lovely mouse.

The coating material used is different compared to the AM or Sensei. Its slightly more like plastic, less like rubber.
It's not as soft, slippery when dry. It has more grip for me. The colour is less matte though, so it shows fingerprints and such faster.

The buttons are a bit softer than on the AM. I'm the kind of person that liked the AM buttons.
Maybe not as much as the G9x left click but better than the rest of the mice that I have.
The side buttons are easier to press and are smaller as well. They are also positioned slightly lower.

The scroll wheel is slightly looser in a good way. The AM took a while to break in, this one is good right away.
As for the wobble. I could nudge my wheel to left on the AM. On the FK I cant do that.
The rubber used for the wheel is a bit stiffer as well. It's is also really easy to press.

The sensor feels the same as on the AM. There is no way for me to tell if it was improved or not.

All in all I think that the Zowie FK is quite an improvement over the AM.
These changes might look subtle but subtle things can make a mouse feel completely different.

Thanks for the info!

Is the scroll wheel noisy like the EC series or is it more quiet?

The Scroll Wheel is pretty noisy tongue.gif

other than that it's perfect.

mouse clicks feel a tiny bit lighter than the white ec2 evo

also the dpi seems higher on the FK compared to the EC2 evo

to 360 across the pad

Zowie FK - 2.4 sensitivity
Zowie EC2 eVo - 2.6 sensitivity
SS Kana - 3.0 sensitivity

How does the FK's shape feel in comparison to the kana? Are they about the same?

Is it slightly smaller than the AM like these pics say? The side by side pics make them look identical in size.

Very similar to kana, more V shaped I think, just slightly. It's same size as am but feels bigger because of the shape and easier to grip with comfort.

I think if this was released before the AM, the AM would not have been released. The majority would view it being inferior in every aspect of the mouse

Thanks for the update Mitaru.

What do you mean by the buttons are positioned slightly lower? Is this due to the groves shaped into mouse 1 & 2?

Thanks!

I meant the buttons on the side. They sit slightly closer to the thumb and are smaller overall compared to the ones on the AM.
Looking at the AM now and comparing the height on mouse 1 and 2. Not sure, seems about the same. It feels different thought due to the grooves. Kind of like the xbox vs ps3 sticks, concave vs convex.

I can definitely notice the lack of "ass". It sits less high, makes the mouse feel more slender. The front feels slightly bigger though, the curve in the middle is also more dramatic on the FK. So I'ts quite narrow in the middle.
