post #1861 of 2101
I'm lucky to be living in Asia , their distributor here is awesome , replying to my queries within 10 minutes of sending it. Anyway , I've just told them that on top of my current issues , there have been a few more issues cropped out after using it for 4-5 months , LMB double clicking , LMB registering as a click instead of a hold and Scroll button having a lot more double clicking than LMB.

Too bad they don't have stock now , which is good thing and a bad thing i guess , good thing is that hopefully all the issues will be fixed for the latest batch of stocks , bad thing is well ,.. i have to wait , but good things are for those who wait? lol.

Also , are there anybody here who is using their FK1's on a hardmat , or am I the only one? Wanting to try out the Razer softpad , and no , I can't get an Artisan here and I kinda not fond of the Qck either .

That's quite interesting. I haven't heard anyone have a problem with double clicking, since the shell rests pretty high above the switch and Huano's are damned sturdy. Maybe they quoted general issues they've heard of with mice, to sound a bit smart..

I have used it on a hard pad, such as the SS 4hd (too small so I can't use it for real, but for testing) and the LOD wasn't bad at all. It tracked well and even made me consider switching to hard pads.

Yup , I'm definitely sure there are double clickings happening on my LMB and the scroll button. I've been using a hardpad for quite a few years now , but recently came into mind that it seems to be a lil slippery , might miss aim in game when I'm nervous or something and some mouse enthusiasts said that clothpads have a more immediate stop than a hardpad . Hoping that once I get the Goliathus speed edition , it'll be different than the QcK and I would like it lol.

My FK1 is now half a year old and my mouse button 4 is almost broken.
Not amused.

I just put my FK1 internals into my FK14. I've noticed that it doesn't seem to glide as well as I would like unless I put very little pressure on the mouse (ie. basically hovering my hand and barely touching the mouse to move it). Based on what you said, I'm assuming that I also have the issue of the lens touching my mousepad. Have you noticed any issues with the tracking after adding the 2nd pair of mousefeet due to the low LOD?

None what-so ever in terms of LOD. If you want to avoid using extra mouse feet, just loosen the 4 screws thumb.gif

When the screws are tight, it pulls the outer edges inwards causing a slight concavity which makes the lens more pronounced. I did find the lens to rattle a bit, so I glued it to the sensor/pcb rather than the mouse.

Got an FK1, finally, and a Camade thrown in.

So far so good smile.gif Very similar to my FK 2013, obviously. Which is good since I like it very much. Does fill the hand a bit more, and is a tad weightier. Scroll wheel is smoother. Seems less precise somehow (not registering scrolls 100%). Rest, well, not much difference.

So yeah. Now it's my main driver, FK move back to workplace. Gonna sell my AM and EC1.

Camade turns out to be useful (cluttered desk, cable snags...). It does the job, for sure.
