Deathadder Chroma vs Finalmouse 2015

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys as you can see in the title, im debating whether or not go with the Deathadder Chroma or Finalmouse 2015. Although I haven't used any of these mice personally before, I have read extensively into each ones specifications and performance against the other and other mice. Im play primary awper in cs go holding a smfc rank. What it comes down to is of which can i get a faster click reg so i have the advantage against another awper. I know that The FM has the pixart 3310 which is hands down one of the best sensors out but also has minimal input lag or click reg. I have also heard that the FM has a component of pre-travel involved with actually clicking the mouse. From what I have heard, the Deathadder has hair-trigger clicks making it a very sensitive mouse. My question is which mouse is superior and of which of these mice will my pc register first?

I would personally love to hear all your opinions smile.gif

Neither, most of us including high level CS players (I'm GE myself) will recommend you the Zowie EC1-A. Sensor is not so important, it's the shape that counts. GuardiaN uses a very poor performing mouse yet still comes up with the best flickshots in the scene.

Probably finalmouse, the weight feels great in the hand. Quality control is kinda **** though, but it has a 3 year warranty and every dealing I've had with them has been positive. Razer makes cheap **** that breaks after a few months and has crappy support.

Thankyou for your responses. I think ill go with the fm since i have found the clicks on zowie mice too hard and im not too fond of ambi mice due to my grip style smile.gif

Have you ever used a Zowie mouse with Huano switches? I went from a Deathadder 2013(4G) to a Zowie EC2-A .. which is the smaller version of the EC1-A that's already been suggested. The shape of this mouse is more comfortable to me than a deathadder. The clicks are indeed stiffer but not by very much. I can still spam them easily, and the sensor implentation in this mouse is top of the line. Honestly I don't buy into the "special sauce" that FinalMouse is touting with their mouse' 3310 even with it's "custom" firmware. The fact of the matter is Zowie has better build quality, and has the best cables on the market. My awp flicks improved massively when switching over from the DA. Night and day difference. The tracking is excellent, and it's given me much better pistol round results. Getting 1 taps with the USP is almost effortless if my aim is warmed up.

This is the first mouse I've owned prior to my old MX518 that actually feels like it's an extension of my hand rather than a mouse when holding it. It's like the perfect shape for all styles of grip. You can palm it, claw it, finger-tip or any hybrid of the 3 conventional grip styles. It's kind of rare to find that in a shell design. It's the perfect weight to me, not too light that it feels cheap, and not too heavy that it feels like a brick. I believe it's around 85g (the ec2-a version).

Some don't like Zowie because of the side buttons, which are indeed lack luster.. but they work and perform just fine. They do the job. I've never felt like there was any delay to my clicks since Zowie addressed the click latency to put their mice in-line with most other gaming mouse on the market aside from the Logitech mice which still edge it out slightly. The fact is, Zowie mice are designed for the competitive player in mind who want something with excellent tracking, LAN ready, comfortable designs, very low LOD, and no additional bloat from software since it doesn't use any, just like the FM. I also prefer the fact the DPI button is on the bottom, compared to it being on top with the FM.

Good luck with your search. I will be purchasing an FM ambi version which they release it since it's going to be their first "real" mouse they release. IE: Won't be an OEM shell with their sticker on it.. and because of that one would expect the build quality to be MUCH improved. Hopefully.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a response. I have to agree with you in saying the build quality and shape of zowie mice outplays most other mice. I play with a hybrid fingertip/claw grip and feel that both mice will 'accept' how i grip it. I really do like its raw tracking ability and the fact that it is driver-less meaning just plug-in and play. Seems i have got some more thinking to do :/

The Finalmouse 2015 has a fair amount of smoothing+the build quality is very cheap, perhaps worse so than most made in china mice.

I prefer the finalmouse.
Better shape ( for me ),sensor and is very lightweight.

Idk. The sensor seemed laggy to me (tho it should be noted that Im probably more sensitive to lag than most ppl). The only thing to right home about is the click latency and the low weight. The 3 year warranty doesn't stand out to me because personally I don't think they're going to last 3 years. This is iust my opinion tho, feel free to take it with a grain of salt.
