ZOWIE FK - Page 63

The wobbly scroll wheel in not preference.

The squeaking is from the plastic parts rubbing against each other. A simple shave with a file will do away with that.

Best mouse ever, i had DA 2013, Xai, G400 and more cant remember. Better sensor performance than Xai, and smaller then Xai, i just have more feel when aiming,. better head shots.

Meh, not really crazy. Button stiffness doesn't depend only on the switches used, and I can tell my EC1 here feels just the same compared to G400 for example (note that it should use omrons). I dunno why nobody complains about G400.

EC series has quite a bit of travel, less could be better, but on the other hand it doesn't bother me much either, it's not even a rare thing on mice

Do people who own the FK actually find it very good to grip? Is it non slippery? I just can't control the FK without too much effort, the rubber coating is like covered with a layer of dust that makes the hand not get a stable grip at any time. I hate it so much.
The AM has such a good shape and the rubber coating is like a glue to my hand, best design, but the stiff buttons and the wheel catastrophe can't make me go back to that nightmare. FK has bit better buttons and a much better wheel, but is so uncomfortable.

I hate you Zowie, you make me want to rip out my hair. Both good mice that fail where the other succeeds.

I am not finding any of these issues with my EC1 eVo...

When you talk about stiff buttons and "wheel catastrophe"...are you referring to the Huano switches being stiffer than Omrons and that the scroll wheel is heavy and "notchy"?

I haven't had any problems moving to Huanos from Omrons w/ FPS games. Also, the rubber coating is amazing. But I am guessing that you didn't go with the right-handed mouse for a reason.

I very much liked FK's rubber coating compared to AM/EC, it's grippable all the time unlike rubbery AM/EC that takes a while to warm up. The glossy one is initially very good but after 30 minutes or so it gets extremely slippery, I'd rather have normal ABS plastic touching my hand then.

But I found the FK impossible to grip shape-wise. It's so flat and narrow so it just cramps my hand so much, I can't use it for longer than an hour. Too heavy (especially in the back) for fingertip, too narrow and flat to claw and just plain pain to palm (well, I can't really palm it because there's no support for the actual palm area without twisting my wrist in an unnatural position). And it's not like I have massive hands or anything. frown.gif
