Not sure if you were responding to me or or not, but I went with the EC1-A. I already felt like the EC1-A was a tad bit narrow for my liking after using a DeathAdder 2013 for so long, so I didn't want to risk it. Last time I tried to use the EC1-A, I absolutely hated the sensor in comparison to the Deathadders 3988/3989. I haven't been on my PC in ~5 months or used my Deathadder in that time, so hopefully I can adjust to the EC1-A much easier now, since I don't want to use a Deathadder ever again due to them breaking so damn easily.
Only reason I was debating the EC2-A even with ~20cm hands, is I read the sensor placement is ideal on the EC2-A, and on the EC1-A it's not, and that could have had something to do with my disliking for it. Only other thing would be the framerate difference, which I doubt I would be able to feel since the difference is only at higher tracking speeds.

Regarding the coating you must have gotten the benq version(red logo) because the zowie with the white logo had very slippery texture. I have to use some tennis overgrips just to hold it properly.
Tennis overgrips on the sides? I've read a lot of people saying the white logo Zowie coating was superior.
