Yeah I just adjust in-game sens for whatever dpi I'm using. If it's actually ~400dpi then I guess it's the shape, I dunno.

I had the same issue with fk1 and fk2, but in target tracking/trackaiming. My flicks were on point, but couldn't track properly, aim would shake left and right. I have played with original FK for 8 months, then when I got used to the fk2 again, it didn't change much. The shape of even the fk1 are too narrow for me + too low. It's playable but I just don't perform the same frown.gif

What do you guys think, would the FK1 suit me better than the FK2? I currently use the EC2 Blue, but the side buttons are failing and the coating is horrible. So I was thinking of buying either the FK1 or the FK2, since the EC2-A uses the same coating as the EC2 Blue. My hands are about 16cm long so quite small and the EC2 shape is very good. I use palm grip mostly with a claw twist on it. Since the dimensions are almost the same on both of the FK's I'd like recommendations. I also have the G100s which isn't enough lenghty for me. Quite the long read...

Obviously the FK2. If you like so much the EC2-A, why not buy another one?

Believe me. Those few millimeters make a difference. My hand is ~18cm and I could use palmgrip if I wanted to on the fk2. Your hand should be perfect for the fk2.

Thank you! I won't buy it right now, but certainly will unless they change the coating on the EC2-A.

Because the coating is horrible.

Hey guys are the stock mouse feet on the fk1 really weak? I was literally noticing decreased performance in csgo (I'm very good) and noticed that I was becoming less consistent or struggling to make simple shots

So I cleaned my mousepad and still felt that way.. nothing changed so I replaced my mouse feet and then noticed the glide was back but I've only had the mouse for like a month or so (gaming a lot though at a very very low sensitivity) so how often am I suppose to change these mice feet... any alternatives that won't put my mouse on tilt? (meaning if I apply pressure right/left the mouse won't tilt over.. I got really high mouse feet one time and that was the downside)

On My FK1 and EC2-A, the feet were a little rough out of the box, but after a couple days of use they become extremely smooth and slippery.

If you look at the mouse feet after usage under a light you can tell what areas are touching the pad as they are much smoother than the areas that are not.

Did anyone try the new Hyperglides Z-1 on a FK1/FK2/AM/FK? How's tracking, PCS, glide ability, cpi steps and feel?
