Do you know how to solder/desolder stuff? That's all there is to it, but if you don't have experience it might be challenging.

Well it's not that common. You have to dig through some massive forum posts.

It's a little hard to take them at their word though when they have so many QC issues though.
Who the heck releases a mouse that starts peeling.
I mean this happened on the CL AND the FK 2014.

Now you have the FK1 with a scroll wheel bug.

Ahhhh the beauty of Zowie, knowing about their cheapo scroll wheel problem BUT still failing to fix it thumb.gif.

Can you imagine them, now trying to beat Razer for overall disgusting Q&A issues.....

I think you'll have cut out that bit that covers up the lens and you're good to go. I've got the FK and I didn't have to cut anything to swap contents.

Btw. the FK1 on the Puretrak Talent tracks horrible while on the QCK+ its fine. It feels like acceleration or something ... I can't properly make Micromovements on it (>800 DPI). Actually - nvmd. I think Final Stand introduced Ultra-Input Lag that wasn't there on CTE. Seems like they've finally broken BF4 beyond repair (Final Stand).

Weird I don't feel any. Haven't played CTE in a very long time, maybe it is better on there. FK1 tracks fine on the Talent I use it every day
