Zowie ZA 11/12/13 Mouse - Page 22

post #211 of 1872
I liked the FK1 (never tried the FK2 or original FK), but preferred the EC2-A over the EC1-A even with larger hands, so I'm not quite sure what size I'd want.

What size are your hands old bean?

Liking the back end which looks like it will support a claw grip position while get to rest palm. Something I don't do with the Savu or Kone Pure Optical while gaming.

I hope the scroll wheel is improved on the ZA line. I'm spoiled with current 'Titan Wheel'. I haven't used Huano switches, I'm mostly FPS so should be fine.

Since Roccat hasn't come out with a Savu using a 3310 sensor I've decided to give the ZA13 a try. Would like to pair it with a Zowie large soft cloth mouse pad like the Taito 3mm but will stick with this mat if I don't find something comprable.

I've never really looked a the measurements before, just went by feel, but by these numbers the FK1/ZA11 should be just as wide as the Xai/Sensei? I measured my Sensei and it's about 57mm right in the middle. The FK1 feels a lot more narrow to me though. I'm at work so haven't got my FK1 at hand but I'm curious to see if these numbers really are correct. If they are I guess it's just the general shape and where the widest parts are located that makes the Xai/Sensei feel so much wider.

Damn I want that Zowie ZA11. Why did they increase the prices of their mice products? headscratch.gif

59,99€ was already pretty expensive for a mouse imho, but a new mouse every two years that was reasonable. Now it's 64,99€ and even if it is just 5€ that may very well be enough to stop me from buying it.

True, but you have that return possibility. On another perspective, you can't put a price tag on comfort, if that's the only thing that works for you.

I think it also depends on the height and width of the butt, if it's wide enough, the front doesn't have to be that wide. For example, the Rival. The front is actually quite narrow, but the back is quite thick, which helps with stability and palm contact. Also, G303 if gripped more forward - the back/middle is wide, but the front isn't at all. It is still one of the better mice in terms of performance for me as a palmgripper.

Yeah, the wideness of the butt is probably the main reason it feels so much wider/bigger.
