EC series has a different board layout and different mouse wheel.

so, could you say one is better than the other? fk/za or ec-a? or which one is more frequently recommended?

any downsides to the ZA?

No you couldn't say which one is better. If you want ambi get the ZA if you want ergo get the EC. Which mice do you like the shape of?

Thanks!

Well, I currently own the EC2-A but just can't find a comfortable grip. That's why I am selling it. I also own the G303 which is a great mouse except for the shape.

Actually, I don't think there is a perfect mouse for me but what came closest was something like the g100s/Ninox Aurora (which I also owned but the switches/buttons stopped registering input... and the Ninox Aurora stopped working as well).

Is the ZA13 comparable to the Aurora/g100s? They are rather flat and the ZA have that strange bumpy thing in the back.... I am desperate. biggrin.gif

If you think you'd like a flatter mouse then you could just go with the FK line. The hump of the ZA line is pretty prominent.
post #1436 of 1812
I rocked the FK2 for a long time, loved it. Switched to the ZA13 just because it was new and didn't want to wait for the new re branded FK2. The ZA13's hump threw me off for a week, but it's so small and thin, it's not a true palm like I would guess the ZA11/12 is. I love the thing now, and the low profile of the FK2 feels weird to me now. Both are legit though.

However, i need to send the mouse back to sweden first and wait a few weeks as they dont have any Avior SK in store.

This means, that i will need a new mouse as soon as possible.

My hands are about 20cm in length, my preferred grip is a claw/palm hybrid (sometimes its a relaxed palm, and sometimes more like a claw grip) and im a high sensitivity user.

A few months ago i considered the Zowie ZA11 or ZA12 as a worthy successor to my problematic Avior. Apparently, the mouse wheels of Zowie mice arent that great as well.

So, would this be a good alternative? Which size would be more suitable in my case - the ZA11 or the ZA12?

Don't think I saw anyone reply to this, so I will.

I've used an the Avior since its release. ZA will be a nice transition. Go with the 11 or the 12, probably the 11. The Avior feels bigger than it really is. 13 will be way too small.

from specs the za13 should have the same heigth as g100s and from pics it looks very similar in the position as well (maybe in the za it's a bit more pushed back)
unfortunately the za13 is longer than the g100s i would've actually preferred it to be a bit shorter like 115-117mm

Has anyone succesfully used the hyperglides made for the ZA11/12 and put them on the ZA13?

I didnt even look when i purchased the ZA series hyperglides since i thought it would fit all of them. Now I find out it wont.

If I slap them on the ZA13 would it still work optimally?



I have an FK2 sitting in front of me and ordered a ZA13 since I want an even smaller mouse. Does anyone know if the scroll wheel feels the same on these two mice? The FK2 scroll wheel feels like cheap trash. I hope the ZA13 is not the same.
post #1440 of 1812
Well, you might be disappointed with the ZA13 if you want something smaller than the FK2. Yeah it's shorter front to back, but the hump (thus arc length) is bigger on the ZA so in-hand it doesn't feel any smaller IMO. And the scroll wheel is the same since they use they use the same internals.
