The Zowie FK2 doesn't touch my palm much when my fingers are in a good position for me. The IO touches my palm before I can get my fingers where I want them. The WMO could be 1-2mm shorter in height and have longer buttons to be ideal for me, but I can use it fine as is. Overall, I prefer the Diamondback arch and button length
Some mice have short buttons or buttons that are very stiff towards the middle of the mouse. When I want to position the sensor further away from my wrist I have issues with the button length or stiffness. The FM TP has longer buttons than the WMO, that should be good for me considering the sensor position on the TP is a lot further back than the WMO.
By the way, I don't solely think sensor placement is about aiming. I like lighter weight PCBs and the weight balance to be further forward. Naturally when you shrink the PCB the sensor is going to be further forward. I like the weight to be forward because I don't stress my palm as much when lifting (as the mouse will naturally tilt against my palm, making it easier to hold) and it's easier for me to control when using my finger tips.
Just make your own mouse, Ideal for you would be g303 internals placed in that shell you prefer.. G303 intrenals have sensor close to switches so when you put PCB inside an average shell when switches line up with Shell buttons the sensor will end up almost under the scrollwheel..
I takes like 3-6 hours for me to make one.. You need to use knife to modify some plastic and strong glue to glue the PCB in place.. sometimes you need to glue plastic together to make certain shapes or holdings for the PCB and when you rip off the g303 scrollwheel you need to glue it in the shell using long plastic shapes and get it on the right position before the glue dries..
Here is my g303 internals put in a shell of a cheap Steelseries Sensei -looking shell.. I had the scroll-wheel installed earlier but the sensor was too far up and I had to move it closer to the bottom and then the scroll-wheel placing wouldn't line up any more.. And the weight is around 65-70 grams.. I emptied the shell of any unnecessary things and there is no scrollwheel, with scrollwheel probably like 5 grams more..Edited by Jonagold - 2/3/16 at 3:51am
