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.

I have a few Zowie mice and one of them definitely has scroll problems. Occasionally it won't register when I scroll a notch and when I continue with another notch it would register both at the same time (I wanna say sometimes it wouldn't register certain scrolls period but it's been a while and I can't recall with certainty, but I am sure of the skip-double register thing). It was easily noticeable while browsing the internet since I'd be scrolling down a page and it'd be janky.

I think some browsers have an issue with scrolling. That's why I went in-game to test the 24 notch wheel. The 16 notch wheel seemed to have issues scrolling up in browsers. I haven't done extensive testing yet because I just got a ZA13 and I have been playing with the G100S.

It wasn't a browser thing. I have a crap ton of mice and I tried others and they were fine. I even have a couple other 24-notch Zowies that are fine. It's just the one.

Why haven't you investigated the issue? It's not like Zowie doesn't give you a extra set of feet.

When I had an issue with my Zowie EC1/2 I figured out why it was missing scrolls. I couldn't fix it because the old Zowie mice had security screws and I don't have that tool. I told Zowie Gear about the issue and the screws -- they changed the screws to normal ones and I read they fixed the EC scroll issue.

Does anybody have wobble for the mouse1 and mouse2 buttons on their FK2? I can lightly tap each button without actuating them, and I can feel a little bit of pre-travel and wobble.

Maybe this? My original FK isn't like that.

I've just RMA'd my Ec2-a white logo, and they sent me a new white logo'd ec2-a... I was expecting a red logo ec2a...

I sent back a 3090 EC and got back a 3060 EC. I forgot if I asked for it specifically or they gave it to me on accident. I should have kept it though, but only 1 CPI step worked properly. In other words, you should have specified you wanted the BenQ EC.

Is there any way to figure out which version I got from the Zowie BenQ lineup? I RMA:d my old my ~1 year old EC2-A for problems with scroll and got a new benq EC2-A, the clicks feel very soft & spammable compared to the model I had before. Wondering if it's just some minor tweaks on the shell, QC lottery or I got one with Omron switches.
