Zowie FK2 is officially announced - Page 30

post #291 of 332
Yeah, it just might be the pic but it looks like that fingerprint is actually embedded in the paint. Might be the camera angle but that finish on the right mouse button looks terrible. It doesn't even look flat it looks like it's had a bunch of gloss paint slathered on there.

At any rate, you need to return that mouse. Unless it's old and somehow just "magically" split the shell between the mouse buttons, which I don't know how that would ever happen unless you just smashed the mouse with your fist.

Yeah it's legit. Got it from an official distributor in my area. Htc One takes rubbish photos (you can probably notice a purple tint on the photo), irl the finnish on the paint is good. I don't think RMA is gonna work. I've changed the switches on this mouse. I will glue it with epoxy from the inside when I get replacement mousefeet.
I'm not even shure how this happened. Only saw it yesterday when cleaning my mouse. And I take care of my equipment. Unfortunate frown.gif

I only hit my keyboard 1 time... Well, more epoxy then.

Also, found out why the hell are zowies shell buttons so stiff. I cut out one part and it's less stiff than a g100s shell. I'll do an omron swap again to see how it is. If it goes well maybe I'll make tut or something.

How in the hell did you do that hitting your keyboard once? Did you swing your keyboard at the mouse like you were playing baseball? I've hit everyone of my zowie products against my keyboard and nothing ever happened like that.

Stuff happens when you hit your keyboard doing 4m/s+ 180s.

I've been doing stuff to my FK2 and noticed something odd. Under the top shell there are two ridges that the separated button shell sits on.
I cut them off with a blade:

Soldered omrons in and there is a huge difference in the stiffness.

I'm interested to know if those rigdes are also on ZA series mice and other FKs.

I'm sure it is the same way on the others but someone should confirm. The deathadder has the same type design for the shell. The further up you move that ridge the harder it is to click the buttons since the plastic doesn't bend as easily and it feels more mushy. The deathadder has a thinner shell and a further back ridge which makes it much more sensitive/easier to click. I actually put hot glue/ridge further up on my deathadder so I don't accidentally click the right mouse button since it was so easy to press down.

But why did Zowie put it there if people were already complaining about the stiff buttons? I can understand that they did it for the FK2 because it's the exact same shell as the FK. But why then the button shell separation goes like 1cm further than it's actually pressing? I don't think they needed the reinforcements as the shell is so beefy. Waiting for ZA owners...

I'm not sure if it is necessary but my assumption is that it is to stabilize the top of the mouse and make it not feel hollow. Without that ridge/beam it has no support in the middle of the mouse where the outer casing is and it will feel hollow and for the extreme someone will probably crack/crush the plastic of the mouse. Kind of like a main support beam in a house.

The new FK2 batch on Amazon has the recent blk/white branding (same as the ZA/EC series). Looking good.
