Decided to buy a Zowie mice, but which one?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, i decided buy a zowie mouse but im really confused about which one should i buy. I wish you people can help me.
Previously i've tried Rival and G303.
Rival feels so bulky and uncomfortable for me and i can't use my grip on it.
G303 is really small for my hands.
I think i have kinda big hands (21 cm from wrist to middle finger) also i think im using claw grip. Im using qck+ and mostly playing CS:GO.

There are some photos about my grip and hand size.

Im interested in Zowie's ZA series and EC-a series. Need your help guys, thank you! rolleyes.gif

ZA11 or EC1-a are the best fits but FK1 is for your claw style

click hardness goes

ec1< za< fk

Thinks have come to a pretty pass for me with that "click hardness" thing. Actually i want a newer mouse and didn't like fk1's zowie logo. I know its weird but im obsessed with minimalism tongue.gif and you said click hardness is worst on Fk1. So i will not go with Fk1. I want to know differences between ZA and EC-a series. are they fits for my grip or completely wrong choice for claw?

if I claw my mices , I like the ZA13 more then ZA11 or 12 ...
because ZA13 is much smaller , with a big butt ...
but if you prefer bigger mices i think u would fit well with an ZA12 or ZA11 ...
( my Handsize is ~19,5cm )
Im using normally a real mixture of all griptypes , more Claw&fingertip then Palm ... I think the only Reason I like EC Series and other mices with that shape, ist because i played years ago with IE3.0 ...
U could take a look into the Mionix Castor , that shape could fit you well ...

It all depends on little factors on how you actualy grip it.
On the other note though the ZA was intended for claw/palm hybrid whilist ec for palm griping. I hope this helps

The ZA and FK are similar as can be seen in comparison photos, but note that what appears to be a small rise in elevation on the rear of the mouse feel VERY substantial in hand. The ZA will fill your palm much more.

I own an FK 2014 and a ZA13. The FK feels lighter and more agile despite being 5g heavier. I also like it as it keeps my hand closer to the mouse pad / desk surface. I'm using the ZA right now and won't switch for a while because I use 800 CPI, and my older FK doesn't support that setting, so switching to it requires adjustment in the OS or game sensitivity.

Edit: I realized that I made it seem as if the ZA is a poor choice. The ZA is still a very good mouse, just note that it will make more contact with the palm area of your hand and may not feel as balanced as the FK.

Thank you for your answer, ZA looks more elegant for me tongue.gif so i decided to order a ZA. I hope it will fit to my grip smile.gif
