What did you think was wrong with the za13? and is your hand size close to mine?
post #1532 of 1872
my hand is: 18.5 x 8 cm
ZA13 for me is not balanced, too short and too stocky, FK2 is is definitely better if you need a small balanced mouse to fingertip/hybridgrip.
Not even try ZA12 because ZA13 is already too tall and palmgrip is the only way to use ZA series IMHO... BUT, there are alot of better mice for palmgrip.

Basically I have quite small hands ( 17.1cm lenght ) and 8cm wide ( without thumb ).
I kinda like to play with palm grip, on some mouses I use a palm with a slightly claw dip into it.

Several mouses that i've used:

FK2 ( it was kinda nice but I want it to be wider, and I feel like fk1 would be too long ) I also tried zowie ec2-a but I didn't like the shape at all.

Logitech g303: I just can't stand all the bugs with the sensor and stuff that happens.. also after long gaming sessions I get cramp in my thumb.

SS sensei: It feels really good it's like the perfect maximum size for my hand, but the sensor is just unplayable for me. I can't control it at all.



I've been thinking now If maybe Zowie ZA could be the mouse kind that I am looking for. Any ideas?

ZA are just as thin, just with more hump in the back.

In the general sense, but the hump is more pronounced and further back on the ZA mice. I'd say the Steelseries mice fit right between the ZA and FK series (FKs with a flatter/less pronounced hump than the Steelseries mice). I think the Steelseries mice are also a touch wider at the point of grip than Zowie mice.

Hey huys,

Just bought a Zowie ZA, the mouse is perfect, I have only one thing to mention is that when I shake the mouse I can hear that plastic lens is moving a little bit inside. Can you check that this is normal or that plastic lens should be solid?

Ofcourse it should be solid cause that is the Sensor lens, not sure if you are trolling or being serious. ^^

I have the exact same Mouse and I hear nothing than a completely solid build if I shake it, so you better send it back and wait for a new one.

The ZA 11 is great, headshots flying all day Long so I wish ya da best with it.

Anyone switch for FK1/FK2 and 11 or 12? How is it compared to it if so.

I switched from an FK'14 (3090 equipped FK2) to a ZA13. At first, the ZA13 felt too tall and much bigger than the FK despite being the smallest in the ZA lineup. It took a while for me to get my aim back after switching. The FK is so low that it allowed me to hold it in a manner that gave me a feeling of very direct control when gaming.

Now though, I prefer the ZA over the FK. It feels comfortable for longer gaming sessions and I forget that I'm holding a mouse, it's so good that I forget the shape entirely.

The fact that the ZA13 is lighter doesn't hurt either.

I'll use the ZA13 until Zowie releases a 3360 equipped one, then I'll get that.

Coming from a FK1, after rejecting the ZA13 due to the weird bold hump in the back I'm now on a FK2 '2015 (black and white). The FK2's switches are suprisingly not as stiff as the huanos from my 2014 FK1 which I finally replaced wirth omrons due to their stiffness. The 2015 FK2 is completely fine for me now.
