post #1481 of 2101
literally just received mine 30 seconds ago, these clicks fell exactly like my deathadder 3.5g but with a bit more travel(which i like). Been playing LOL for a very long time Before just now getting into cs go, it's most likely the reason I may have higher finger endurance then the majority of fps players. Huanos being to hard to use in moba is bull**** from what i've just seen, I just spammed the **** out of it and i still felt nothing after around 200 fast clicks.

ive played hours of sc2 and dota2 with with an FK and my FK1 and i can say very confidently that id rather play with a much easier to click mouse like my G400.
theres nothing "hard" about it, more like, after long sessions its just more comfortable (and sensible, imo) to use a mouse with less stiff switches for games where you click alot.

also its not really the huanos fault, i read they require the same actuation force of omrons and that its the way the shell is constructed on the fk/fk1 that makes them feel so stiff.
i believe the design is more for "tapping" FPS players.

theres huanos in my ec2 evo cl and i play rts/moba with that very comfortable, easy clicks. nothing like the fk at all.

Guess I'm not as hardcore as you. i notice the fatigue easily, but at the same time I never have felt the need to spam clicks as much as I did in my 'tests' in an actual game.

Furthermore, the mouse feel arn't too thin and the mouse wheel up doesnt seem to skip at all. Either i'm lucky or the new batch of mice from amazon have fixed the mouse wheel issue.

Mine are thin too but they don't scrape on the Talent.

My AM/FK1 hybrid did scrape at first, but that was totally my fault. If you don't line those damn feet up perfectly it leaves a hard edge. My FK1 never scraped on the Talent.

Just got my Fk1 and I am very pleased with it so far. Very comfortable, using it with a Qck+ surface and it feels great. I love not having any software or drivers! I do seem to have the scroll wheel issue mine seems to miss going up one in every ten but I can live with that, that's the only downside I have found so far.

My last two mice were a Razer Naga (nice for MMO's but nothing else), and the Deathadder 2013 (good mouse, much more comfortable for me as I have a hybrid palm claw grip, but I got very sick of razer synapse, and now that I have the FK1 the DA2013 feels kind of cheap however I did like the feel of the scroll wheels a bit better and the side buttons).

Overall so far I am very pleased so far and will be sticking with the FK1!

I could feel the area around the lens scraping...

Stacked skates (2 on top of eachother) solved it.

I had some extra IME 3.0 hyperglides, stuck em on my FK1. Pure bliss.
post #1490 of 2101
Discovered something interesting. Due to being an indecisive twit, I decided to put the FK1 guts back into my FK1 shell and all of a sudden, I have the mouse wheel issues others have reported (had no such issues with the hybrid after quite a bit of testing). So I am guessing I got some dust or whatever mixed up in the scroll wheel mechanism when I put it back together which is causing the issue. It's late here so I won't do it tonight, but tomorrow I'll open it up again and clean it out and see if that helps.
