Its not like suddenly the black and white huano 3310 zowie is becomes worse when the new one gets released.

It's the people here lol. They're often unnecessarily obsessive and spend too much on mice. It isn't justified half the time and is just a crazy hobby. Like, that thread title "Now that 3360 is here, I lost all interest in other mice"; made me chuckle and shake my head.

No offence to anyone, anyone can do as they please; it's the reason this forum exists. There's a wealth of information here, but half the time opinions and statements here are absurd.

Depends on the switch model and how the mouse is designed.

I the scroll of the 2016 Zowie better than the 2015 version (black/white)?

I was waiting to buy the update 2016 version, but if they don't add a new sensor and go back to Huano switches, I'll go for the mouse with the best scroll.
I mainly play CS:GO btw and at the moment I'm still playing with an original Razer Diamondback (red) which has angle snapping frown.gif

Or is the Finalmouse Tournament Pro a better option?

The new Zowie is no longer in production and the new scroll wheel is great IMO. 16 step makes it VERY stiff which is nice if you use it for weapon swaps. The tournament pro isn't out yet.

I know, but I'd like to know if I better buy now (2015 fk1) or wait until the new FK1 is out in March.
Or wait on the tournament pro which will be released soon.

My diamond is still doing the job so I'm not in a hurry.

I just don't want a mouse with a scroll wheel that does random thing since it use it for weapon switching or bhopping

I don't think you will have an issue. Personally I haven't had an issue with my 2015 (non-BenQ) EC2-A.

So, do these mouse have any current issues I should watch out for if I were to buy one? scroll wheel or something like that?

I still like the way Zowie BenQ is going. Seems like they are really sticking to the Zowie design philosophy, even more so than before in fact. First they go with simple all black mousepads instead of the crappy blue and grey logo designs and then they recall mice due to quality concerns instead of leaving a faulty product on the market. The new color scheme is badass without being flashy as well. They should be commended for that. Too bad we now have to wait for the updated updated batches.

I just hope they take some hints from Ducky next year.


They way they have LOD and Polling Rate adjusted is a bit odd imo. The Ducky Secret is so damn simple, hold the button, then press left or right click to change polling rate and LOD. They even managed to have RGB lighting without it being too annoying or flashy, I don't see any reason Zowie couldn't emulate it.
