The FK1 FK2 apparently. That guy they have in the pictures holding the mouse helped Zowie design the FK to fit that type of grip the best.

Here is the typical argument I hear for Huanos: Heavy click = harder to press when your flicking your mouse across your pad aka less accidental clicks. This argument would make sense but it also makes Huanos sound inferior to Omrons in that you should be more skilled to not press the buttons, this argument also perpetuates the idea that Huanos are not good for click heavy games. The Zowie MiCO was extremely popular among the SC2 community and that uses Huano switches, infact some of the best pro SC2 were using the Zowie MiCO.

I've personally spent time with Huanos and Omrons, I don't have one I prefer more. The both have a different feel. To me Huanos feel more deliberate, Omrons feel more responsive.

After swapping Omrons in and using several different mice I can honestly say that majority of the click is based of the design of the mouse itself than the actual click. I have an Omron MiCO, Huano MiCO, Huano EC2 eVo, Omron WMO, and Omron Kinzu V2 Pro. WMO and MiCO are tied with response and feel. They both however get destroyed by my old g9x. I absolutely hate my kinzu V2 pro click, and the EC2 is just decent. I try so hard to make the EC2 my DD but I just can't do it. I've got a Xornet in the mail, and a pre-order ninox in a warehouse apparently located on tatooine.. which should be shippign to me around the same time Star Wars the Force Awakens gets released in theaters.

I added the second pair of feet on top of the original ones and it has greatly improved the mouse feeling for me. It glides really well on my Goliathus mousepad.

I recommend anyone with an FK1 to give this a shot.

Zowie had a thing where their lens would reach the mousemat. I think it's less prevalent in the FK1, however, since I put my FK1 into the original FK shell I had to do that too.

Can someone help me with the cable? I don't know what to do with it.

I recently got my FK1 (1 week ago) and the cable is very annoying/in the way for me while playing. You know how the cable was wrapped around in the box? The cable is like that just gets in the way for me, all the time. What can I do to straighten it?

You could soften it in warm water to release the cable coil memory. I just taped my cable to the desk.

Did straighten the cable but it still is as annoying as it was.

My cheap second hand original FK showed up today, pretty happy with it to be honest. fits very well into my hand and the right hand side thumb buttons don't get in my way at all. Buttons are prob a bit harder to press them normal but I will get used to it

Did you tried a mouse bungee? I've got one and works fine
