I can't see how that can be possible considering the design of the shell and the wheel. The only thing I can guess being problematic is the spring variance.
One Zowie mouse I own has very stiff springs. These stiff spring can stop the wheel midway through scrolls. I have to use a lot of force to scroll. Those springs makes the 16 notch wheel problematic.
I haven't yet tested the 24 notch wheel with the various other springs and Zowie mice I have. I haven't decided if I am going to keep the ZA13.
