ZOWIE FK - Page 35

post #341 of 2198
They adjusted where the side buttons are compared to the AM correct? I'm curious if they'll be as noticeable on the right side for someone that grips the mouse with two fingers on that side as they are on the AM, one of the reasons I couldn't use the AM.

After two days of using I have to say I'm really happy with this mouse. After total disappointment after buying AM, I was extremely skeptical towards FK. I'm EX DA and G400 user. I always felt a need for smaller mouse and took a shot for FK.

Shape is very good for claw and palm with medium size hands. Buttons are similar to G400 (noticalbly harder compared to Deathadder 3.5G). Scrollwheel is ok, not good, not bad. Precise but I don't like sound it makes. Side buttons are placed in pretty good spot, You can reach them without much effort. Tracking is beast, not much to say. I play non fps games also and I have no problem with Huano switches so people who are affraid of this should know that new placement of swtiches made massive difference in comparsion to AM. Great mouse overall, I only hope it won't break.

The coating is the best I laid my hands on for sweaty hands.
I usually don't have sweaty hands, because it's nasty. rolleyes.gif
But in game .. yep, my hands get more warm. rolleyes.gif
The grip then is fantastic.



After using the FK for a bit longer now, I can say that it is a really good fingertip mouse.
Palming works quite well too.
And claw-grip too.
But with both those grips I tend to dislike the lip on the right side that goes down in the front. It should be higher. But it's kinda nitpicking. No real trouble with any grip. But I tend to use the fingertip grip the most with this mouse.

The location of the switches is the same as the AM. Same board and firmware.

You mean the tapered sides of the shell?

That is one problem with claw grip focused mice. They tend to be 38mm or under. I wish the FK was 40mm like the EC2. Although with the apex change I think 38mm would be fine. It would help with the 2 fingers on the side palm grip.

What do you mean by apex change?



Sometimes I have the feeling that my ring finger presses 'against' the lip. It's not a real problem as it isn't as pronounced as the lip on say the G400/MX518.
But it would have been even better with this slightly more space for the ring finger.[





Actually .... when the descriptions of the grips are correct on the Razer website, then the FK is pretty much the best claw-grip mouse where the palm only ever so slightly touches the back/base of the mouse. That's why I said I mostly use finger-tip grip. In reality though it should be called a hybrid between claw and fingertip. Which I like! smile.gif

When I say "apex", I'm referring to the arch of the mouse compared to the arch of the AM.

Would you agree it would have been better if it was taller? So you would have room for your fingers.

I have the FK and mostly really like it, but I've noticed I can't click nearly as fast as I can on most of my other mice. A little hard to explain, but when I try to click very fast, it's like mouse1 doesn't come back up fast enough and stays pressed down. So when I'm in game, my gun fires kind of stuttery. Does that make any sense?

Is there a mouse like the FK but with better switches, or is this really in its own category right now?

Looking for a mouse with the same kind of \_/ shape, no correction/accel, and side buttons. I really love my old Diamondback and wish they'd make a new one (to give you an idea of where I'm coming from/what I'm looking for). redface.gif

It's still huano switches which are terrible. High actuation force, more stiff clicks. I modded my EC2 evo with some Omrons 01F's from Japan and they are divine. I'm in the market for another mouse (because why not). I will probably buy an EK and then mod it again.

Zowie could probably double its sales if it just used quality switches and none of this Huano crap. FPS' are barely staying alive on PC wheras MOBA and RTS is exploding. In these latter games, APM is everything and quality switches matter.
