Anyone know if the Hayate is consistent in all directions? Unlike the Hien. To bad it doesn't come in white or red.

I think a FK, Hayate and Avago lens will be the setup I use until BST let's me get one of his... in 2015. Ouch!

I will back you up smile.gif going to be asking them the same thing.

That way I also get to enjoy my AM a little bit more before I switch to the FK and it wont feel like such a waste. Popups, have you used the white version of the AM/EC before? How is the coating? I am not a fan of the rubberized coating on the Zowie mice (have not tried the FK), do you have any experience with the glossy white coating that they use? It looks like I would prefer it over the rubberized coating of the AM.

This is the 1st review I have seen of the mouse. It is not really all that usefull

The rubber on it doesn't feel like the AM's, feels more like the kana, maybe even less rubberized coating

I was under the impression that it didn't have a rubber finish, I thought it was just a new texture for the plastic? I may have misinterpreted their product documentation though.

I had an EC1 white and I use an EC2 and AM in white.

The coating is basically white paint with flake (some call it glitter). It is glossy. It's best for dryer hands. Once you get a little moister on your hands it will really grip. You can just blow hot air from your mouth onto your hands like you do when it's cold. When your hands are completely dry there isn't any grip. If you don't have clean hands there can be some build up that you can just wipe off.

I prefer glossy mice. I cannot hold on to a DeathAdder BE. So I removed the coating. I would only buy mice that are glossy if I can.

It wasn't the huano switches that made AM hard to press, but the mold.

So are FK buttons hard to press anymore? What about the scroll wheel is it hard to press/scroll like AM too?

That's funny.
I experienced the exact opposite with my AM-FG.

When my hands were dry I could grab the mouse and it sticks to it.
But when gaming for some time it became more and more a problem to properly grab it without applying pressure.

I will try the hayate fk combo when I get home, I'm currently on a business trip. I will also test for any inconsistencies with the mouse, but will RMA it regardless. I bought two so I can let one go for a bit.

The buttons are not hard to press at all, just like the EC mice. The scroll wheel is also lighter. Although, the scroll button seems the same in terms of pressure needed.

The middle and rear are the same. The middle width is generally an area of complaint, as it is 58mm. Sometimes the height is an issue for people. The AM is 38mm high and the FK is said to be 36mm.

I personally do not like mice that are 38mm or under in height. They tend not to give you enough space for your fingers with the typical two fingers on the right side grip. I don't like my hand rubbing the mouse pad. I rather have 40mm or higher in height. I also like longer mice so I can use more of my palm on the mouse than on the mouse pad. So a mouse that is 127mm or longer.
Thanks, man.

Yeah, I ordered the AM; might get the FK later this year.

Thanks for the description of the coating. Very useful. Unlike most people I tend to dislike rubberized coatings. I dont exactly hate them, but I have not used a mouse yet where I felt the rubberized coating provided more grip than a simple plastic coating. I have dry hands, and find it to be more slippery most of the time.

Another AM or FK person here.
Currently using the G500 and MX518, enjoy the sizes of those mice. Which would everyone here recommend, the FK or AM?
