Damn my phone lag.. Does the FK1 PCB fit inside AM shell without any modifications? Zowies glossy shell is really good and I have a AM-FG.

Yup. You'll need to use the AM usb cord and the FK1 wheel. Just take the rubber ring off of the AM wheel and put it on the FK1 scroll wheel hub. That way the colors are consistent. That's about it. Everything else is drag and drop.

I had to cut out off the sides of the lens thing to fit it (not the case on FK shell). I had a spare lens though.

I'm pretty disappointed glossy Zowie mice are no longer available for purchase anywhere.

I got a lightly used AM-GS off ebay recently for fairly cheap recently for another FK1 pcb swap. I don't really enjoy gloss coating on top because my index finger tends to slip around on it, but it works perfectly as a side grip for me. I hear the AM-FG has a lighter click feel, which lines up with my observations about the normal matte abyssus vs mirror edition. There is definitely a market for gloss finish mice.

Nah, US. But I was specifically talking about the AM-FG and the EC1/2 eVo white.

How much easier is the AM clicks compared to FK1?
Similar to EC1 or harder?

No difference at all. The only shell that feels any different are the EC shells. Oh... And the Mico shell, but that's just torture.
