ZOWIE FK - Page 67

post #661 of 2197
Sure, it's an AM, because he described what he was after when picking up the AM. Could also be a prototype looking like an AM with modified shape that we don't see because of his hand. After all, naturally they settled on the colour at the end of R&D. Still, reading how he describes his grip I think the pics do show how he wants a mouse to hold, and explains what his ideas (e.g. concave sides to put both ring finger and pinky on the side of the mouse) for the design team were to allow for this style of gripping the mouse. I'm not native English, so maybe I misunderstood it. Then again neither is Neo, thus making it hard to communicate minute details when both have to resort to a third language.

So the FK has the same issues as the EC does with its scroll wheel?

Never tried the EC. If its got the same as the AM than the FK's wheel is an improvement over it. Still got issues rhough

EC eVo's don't have any scroll wheel issues, unless you received a mouse from a bad batch or something...

- "Pinch" (as in grab its sides between thumb and another finger) the scroll wheel, pull it upward, then scroll the wheel.
- scroll from the very front of the wheel
- scroll from the left side of the wheel

and it will not register the downscroll. Up works from any position.

Read the Ec2 review thread from pages 24-27 for an extensive coverage (and suggested solution) of the problem.

My Ec2 Evo has the scroll wheel issue. I've literally put in 10+ RMA requests and they message me finally after my year warranty just passed. I've never had such a horrible experience with a company. I've waited months for a reply, and get one May 27, when my yr warranty was up May 16.

that just sounds wierd. the issue you describe sounds like it would not be of hinderance with regular use. I only use my mousewheel to switch weapons.

Depends on what you call regular use.
But you're right, it's not make or break for a mouse, and it's something you quickly get accustomed to and just grab the wheel from the top, which I guess most do most of the time anyway.
However, seeing it's advertised towards gamers that play with claw grip (thus grab the wheel from the front), and even has a dent in front of the wheel that invites to use the wheel from there (doesn't work though), leaves a bad taste in my opinion. Also, if you're used to scrolling with the side of your index finger (don't put it on the wheel, but apply pressure to its side and scroll), you'll have to get used to a more "conventional" or regular type of using a scroll wheel.
It's just a nuisance for those that care about those kind of things.

In Quake or CS, players may bind scroll wheel down as jump to strafe jump (b-hop), then it is a major problem.

I use bind "mwheeldown" "+jump" for CS, Source and GO. For example, it helps me to jump onto silo, on Nuke, in GO. You have to time the second jump perfectly in GO to increase your unit speed. To use the EC to do that is hard, as the EC tends to miss the second scroll often, makes me miss the jump. Could you use space bar to make the jump? Probably, but I use space as walk.

I guess I will have to stick with the Zowie AM and DeathAdder BE. I have to stock up. Is BST still going to release a mouse?
