Also, if I "shake" the mouse, the scroll wheel "rattles".

*YouTube-link

I'm sorry if I posted this the wrong place. It's just I've seen the pictures of the scroll wheel on both AM and FK. Maybe you guys could help me out.

Thanks.

Seems normal to me too. Scroll works fine like that in game too, just a noise.

Alright, thanks...

But I'm going to RMA it. Making me insane.

*EDIT*

What's up with this? My AM have these "holes" too. Zowie AM "holes"

The stiff buttons, the horrible wheel and sides not perfect for lifting the mouse are the negatives for me with the AM. The positives are a good general shape, awesome cord and good performance. FK seems to have improved on these elements, but I will probably still wait for BST...

AM is still a solid mouse in my opinion. I kind of tolerate the flaws.

The stiffer switches are for the Pros. Casual player cannot handle them -- their hands are too girly.

But you're telling me that the sound is normal? I'm not sure, but my scroll wheel feels weird.

I love the stiff buttons, the mouse feels too small for me, but let's see. If I get a refund, I might order another AM - might order the FK. thumb.gif

By the way, what's a "BST"?

You could try to get another AM, but I wouldn't bet on it to be different than what you have experienced, because it is by design. I would choose to wait for the FK, as it seems an improvement overall.


BST is the guy who is producing a mouse (link) on his own. It's in development currently. No idea if it will be good, but I put all my bets on it at the moment. Should it fail, than I'll come back to FK or whatever will be available by then.

BST's mouse is to small for me. The length is way below what I have ever used. The side's taper seems like an issue for my grip style too. Also the scroll wheel is so far back and not that exposed. All that leads me to think I will hate it.

I will likely favor the Zowie FK or DeathAdder BE over every other mouse after some user mods.

What kind of mod did you have in mind for the FK? Just out of curiosity.

Adding a highly modified Avago lens, changing the switches and taller mouse feet.

Don't you think that maybe the feet are so thin on purpose?
It can go slightly higher but i wonder if it's bad to get too close to the point where it doesn't track anymore.
Otherwise I don't see why the skates are so thin. I's not because Zowie is cheap. You get an extra pair.
