I think roughening up the surface could suffice, as the FK2 coating feels fine to me.
i feel the same way, and the thing is my hands don't even get sweaty with any other mouse but when i tried the ec1-a it was like i just got out of the bath every 30 minutes and had to wipe it off, the coating for the steelseries rival 300 black is perfect for me, wish the ec1-a had this.

Last attempt to make the EC2-a tolerable in terms of coating.
Used 'Vinyl tape' which is only like 0.1mm in width, the pads are so thin and the material looks almost the same as the original EC2-A coating, its almost invisible.

Still it gives me a lot better grip now because it is different material! I like it thus far.

I had to do the same otherwise it was like a cake of wet soap.

Currently using the G303. Love the clicks and love the overall performance of the mouse. The scroll wheel isn't too bad either. The shape makes it a bit hard to palm and the sides of my hand are pretty much in the air whenever I try to palm.

Are there any mice with similar performance but most of all, similar light clicks? I play a lot of clicking games (Path of Exile and dota) so light clicks are a must. I'm looking for something a bit wider so I can rest my hand on the mouse, but not high so that my hand becomes angled upwards from the wrist. So a good flat, wide mouse with light clicks.

Thanks.

Really nothing with clicks like the G303 currently. The overall package of the G303 is great if you can adjust.

I agree. The G303 has arguably the best clicks I've ever used on any mouse. The only other mouse I own that comes somewhat close to with (with very low click latency) is the G900.

It seems like 90% of you think zowie ec1/2-a are bad. What alternative can you recommend?

I don't think they're bad. I have an EC1-A and EC2-A. The quality control lately has been suspect. I think the demand has pressured BenQ to put a rush on manufacturing for these mice and this has resulted in mushy, creaky, or flat out awkward mouse clicks. I personally think there are better mice out there. The "no drivers and no software" gimmick doesn't seem to give me any more advantage over a mouse with on-board memory. And CS:GO players love the mouse since the stiff clicks will prevent misfires. It's all up to what caters to your play style.

I agree. Since their recall, it seems that Zowie is trying to rush their production to get as many out as possible at the expense of quality. Now I've had 2 EC1-A and they've both been badly assembled. One arrived with the top shell completely disconnected from the lower shell aka it wasn't screwed on. The second was the RMA replacement for the first one and it was a slight improvement over the first one.

They feel the best in the hand imho. Also nip and other big teams recently started playing with it.
