Hello

I have been reading reviews here and I have recently(2 months ago) purchased my second gaming mouse.
Unfortunately I find myself looking for a new mouse (?) because I feel like the shape of the mouse I purchased is not good for me.
I bought a Zowie FK together with SteelSeries QcK pad and I must say that it is indeed a really good mouse, tracking is good and I love the sensor.
But my hand I use the mouse with, starting to hurt, when I play, I have to put pressure on the mouse so I can hold it well, and I believe it is causing me damage in the long time playing.

The main problem with holding the mouse as I feel, is about the width of the mouse which is 58mm. http://i.imgur.com/lcfl3Xq.jpg

Lately, I have been looking in to some other mouses and testing the size dimensions on the web, and I saw that the Sensei has width size of 68mm.

I was kinda happy that I found a mouse that could fit me well, but then I realized that the QcK pad I use might cause some problems.
I must say that I am low on budget and getting a new pad aswell is not that of an option.

1. What's your grip style? Claw

2. What's your sensitivity? 450 DPI and 2.7 in CS:GO

3. What's your maximum budget? Price is different where I live but somewhere around $60

4. Do you want additional buttons? Basic

5. What games do you play? Counter Strike: Global Offensive

6. Do you mind about prediction? As close to the FK

Thank you in advance.

You should check Sensei [RAW], this mouse has the same shape with Sensei but cheaper.

one discrepancy between the two dimensions you posted is it looks like for the fk its measuring the bottom width, and the sensei is measuring the widest part. The FK is narrowest at the bottom. The width of the fk is actually 64 when not measuring from the bottom so really you're talking about only 4mm difference.

does it need to be ambidextrous? If you like the fk sensor, i'd just go with the ec1, wider and same sensor. the cm storm spawn would also be an obvious choice, same sensor, designed for claw grip, and 75mm wide.

4mm is nothing to shrug at in my opinion.

Thank you guys for your responses,
I have been measuring the narrowest part on the FK indeed, because this is where my hand having a difficult time to hold it.
About the Sensei, I would really like to know how much difference is between the widest to the narrowest, because from pictures it looks on the Sensei the size dimensions is more 'balanced' than the FK.
I would really like an overall bigger mouse than the FK, I thought the Sensei would be in improvement for me regarding to the size, but as I said I use regular QcK so i'm not sure how this will work out. I like my mouse as ambidextrous but I don't think I mind about changes as long as it good, EC1 looks good tbh.

so for me it's kinda between the Sensei and the EC1 I guess. what do you think?

Sensei's shape is pretty perfect for people who love ambidextrous mouse. Plus, the sensor is much better on cloth pad than the old Xai and it work well with QcK. Avago 9500 sensor has a small amount of acceleration (about 5% I think), but if you are a mid to high sensitivity gamer, you will not see it, unless you try to find it. However, I believe you will hate the coating, it wear off so fast. So I suggest that sensei raw ( prefer NaVi edition for LOD adjustment) could fit your need perfectly.

Hi,

i own a sensei raw rubber and also a zowie ec1 evo.
For me the sensei fits better to my Hand as i come from a intelli 1.1a and i like the ambidextrous shape more than the one of the ec1 evo.
The sensei is a little bit smaller than the intelli but u get used to it very easy.

The sensor of the zowie is a little bit better than the one from sensei because sensei got a little bit of positive acceleration but u get used to it after some time and both sensors have perfect tracking and i don't really see a difference when playing csgo or other fps games

Both mice run fluently on my qck+ and also on my zowie g-tf speed, so nothing to worry about
