Thanks! I might do that on another mouse

That's not it. They already have the Zowie Mico, which is smaller than even the Kinzu, but it doesn't have the great sensor of the FK and the AM.

Also, is there anyway to make the scroll wheel require less force to scroll? I absolutely cannot stand the FK mouse wheel, makes b-hopping in counter-strike almost impossible.
I mainly used a pretty short (200mm) double-cut flat file with a cut number of 1 after DIN 8349 (the system Germans use). I don't know what system is used in other countries, it looks like the Swiss cut numbers are also used in English-speaking countries. A 1 in Germany is a 0 in the Swiss cut system. I then used a smoother file (cut 3 after DIN 8349) and in the end, I used fine sandpaper (1000 grit) to make it really smooth.
The other advice I could give you is don't file away the screw threads and take care you don't touch the grey cable thingy, it can hang around in the back:
The safest way would be to open it and put it in the front before you start filing. I just filed away lol.
I'd love to see how yours turn out if you decide to do it.
I don't know a way to make the scroll wheel looser, but I discovered that you can make the clicks stiffer or less stiff by adjusting the screws in the front.
