I Ordered Speed Skatez AM for my FK, as said on the site they sould be 100% teflon this time...

I'll see... So sad that the stock skatez on the FK are not like the EC... 5€ + delivery for skatez...

To speak about the thickness, on some site they say 0.6mm some other (the zowie) they say 0.8mm, crazy that Zowie said to you that is .6mm when its .8mm on the site. They sould work on a better website, or at least update it.

The stock skatez are so thick that there is some hollow on the glide where the mouse's plastic is not perfectly falt.

No feet are really "teflon". (DuPont isn't exactly happy about the marketing even if it depicts Polytetrafluoroethylene or "PTFE").

Brands source specific mixtures of the same or similar material. Cheaper or more expensive variations.

If I change the lens to an Avago I end up with 980 CPI.... I cannot use that! The lower step would be 390, but that step is very weird / not very good. What the hell... Zowie needs to change that firmware.

If you lower the sensor below the standard height does that actually increase CPI? I know increasing the sensor height will lower CPI. My guess is it wouldn't change the CPI from the default value.

Does the yellow FK wheel glow in the dark slightly?

Finally got mine in the mail, I really love the shape of this mouse. This is what the AM should have been to start with. Sensor/performance is pretty much identical to the AM, it's just an easier to grip (and lift) version of the AM. Previously the EC2 was my favorite shape, period, but this one may give it a run for it's money.

Ideally I'd like a better wheel encoder, this is the same exact wheel as the AM which seems a little rough/loud compared to most other modern mice wheels. Something like the Savu's wheel would be tremendous on this mouse.

I am pretty disappointed by Zowie. They haven't released a white FK. They should have released a white version for their second batch. That would have kept the momentum of the FK sales going. Seems like they now have tapered down, we'll see. If so, BIG mistake Zowie...

I am growing more irritated by the day with their CPI steps / firmware. They should have also took the opportunity to change their firmware with the FK release. I would have been fine if they only did that -- even if they didn't change the lens. I could have fit a lens and would have been happy.

I hate this concept of extremely low LOD.

I agree the wheel design can be better. However, I disagree with the idea that Zowie mice should have a 24 detent wheel. That is not to say that it should or shouldn't be a mechanical. Simply, less detents is preferred by some (maybe many) "competitive" FPS gamers.

Have you ever heard of the great river that flows through South America? It is the second longest in the world and accounts for nearly 1/5 of the world's total river flow.
