Edit: and if you want I can post up close pictures of the 402 and the fm pro and you can compare the texture yourself.

That would be lovely, thanks.

Ive had mine for a day now, the scroll wheel is the best ive ever had not that tactile but super smooth, the side buttons are improved over the 2016 ergo the mouse clicks suck in comparision to my ec2a benq..g303 still has best clicks imo on a side note i have a non defective benq ec2a with omrons i would be willing to sell, pm me if interested.

Mouse arrived today. Hands shaking as I nervously cut open the Amazon labeled brown box. I gently remove the FM box. I open the velcro latch, in a state of utter awe that this product is actually in front of me. I begin to touch, or dare I say, caress the mouse through the plastic. As teasing myself becomes too intense to handle, I cut open and slide it out...

I lift the mouse out by the cable, taking extra care not to actually touch it before having it rest properly on my mousepad. I stare, blankly, but focused. Beginning to admire its dimensions and overall physical prowess I slowly lower my hand upon it, letting it take me in moreso than myself grabbing it. I wrap my fingers around...bliss.

I adjust my hand into multiple familiar positions, utterly amazed by the odd "familiarity" I'm now realizing I've longed for. Claw, Palm, Fingertip...it's all there for me. Somewhat stupefied by how the contours envelop me, I begin to click the buttons in varied patterns. The sounds of the switches echo through my depths. I take some swipes across the surface. Some fast, some slow, some in figure 8 style sequences. In a blitzkrieg rush of passion, I finish off my dance by "drawing" a heart.

I've found love, and what confuses me most of all at the moment is whether it's the discovery or the journey itself that has "impacted" me more. Alas, I'm not currently in a decent mental state to logically express my feelings.


.....*record scratch*

Anyway, I'm gonna actually try this thing out in a little bit. Gonna grab a bite to eat and tend to some other things first. Really diggin' this mouse based on first impressions, though. Shape/dimensions = win.

Here is a quick video I did of the new Finalmouse tournament.
I'm liking it so far!

Big improvement over my last finalmouse (1st gen 2015 ergo) mechanically. Switch-wise M1/M2 don't have much play (<1mm), side buttons have a good amount of play though (little less play than an ec-series mouse), scroll wheel clicks as it should same w/ the dpi button. Scrolling w// the mousewheel is smooth, similar to a deathadder; notches less defined than a rival and a zowie.

Build quality is also much better than before (which couldn't of been that difficult considering the original FM). Shell is fitted well w/ no excess anywhere from inspection and mousefeet are centered in their landing areas and no rattles from shaking the mouse. The mousewheel does have excess rubber hanging off its edge which is noticeable as you're scrolling--really the only fault I've found.

Also of note (maybe some ppl care) is there are two types of coating, top surface being smooth and similar to mice from mionix while the lower plastic (thumb area and ring/pinkie finger area) feels like a generic plastic and is rougher.

Shape wise only issue I had (coming from a ZA11) is my ring finger needs to sit lower on the side of the mouse otherwise it gets pinched by the right mouseclick when I press it. Not a big deal for me but I know some people really prefer that finger high.

Overall it's a solid mouse and a huge improvement over what I last got from FM in every respect. That said it's still expensive af and I'd probably recommend a similar mouse from zowie (za or fk series) over it just because you have more control over the settings of the sensor (huge bonus from using the 3310). But if you're an idiot collector like me or are really excited about getting the same mouse as your favorite streamer, you'll probably be safe from buyer's remorse after getting this mouse. Whether I will continue using it I dunno, will take some time but it's a pretty uncontroversial mouse all around so don't see why not.

Initial thoughts and comparison to the Sensei.

Shape. Overall I think the shape feels extremely similar to the Xai/Sensei. The indent on the sides is not as pronounced on the FM, so it does have its own unique feel to it. Obviously without having buttons on the right side may benefit with different grip styles. The contours of the FM do make it very comfortable to hold, the Sensei feels a little more round overall. It's a great shape, perfect for my grip and play style.

Switches. The switches feel great to me, they are noticeably more pronounced and slightly heavier to click than the Sensei. The M2 sounds a bit louder than M1 but they feel the same tactilely. To me the side buttons really dont have much travel at all, I have no complaints. When you look at pictures of the FM the side buttons seem to be slightly more forward than the Sensei, but when I hold the mouse they are practically identical as far as placement.

Coating. The top coating feels exactly like the Sensei raw, the sides are extremely smooth plastic and very nice to the touch. I had no issues with the hour i've used it.

Sensor. The 3310 speaks for itself. To me the sensor in the Sensei feels more "floaty" than a 3310 or 3366. The placement of the sensor on the FM is just slightly higher than on the Sensei. I'll mention the DPI switch because I'm talking about the sensor. Personally I would like to see the DPI switch on the buttom of the mouse and have the top button mouse 6 to bind to grenades or other binds.

Weight. Sensei raw is 90 grams compared to the FM at 86, not a huge difference but it is noticeable. I was hoping the FM was lighter.

I do have a couple small complaints about the FM but nothing that will prevent me from using or recommending this mouse. First, the LED is extremely bright and bleeds through the side buttons like previously mentioned in the thread. This seems like it could have been easily prevented pre release. Second, when I look at the mouse feet they seem to be thick enough but it does seem like the mouse itself drags on my mouse pad slightly. I'm thinking maybe once the mouse feet break in it will be less noticeable, and I also use a Zowie gtf-x so it may just be the sound. Edit. The more I use the FM the less I notice the drag, I think it was the initial sound of the mouse feet before they break in. Lastly, I feel an extremely small bump in the middle of my M1. I can't tell if its in the coating and I can't visually see it, but it is annoying none the less..I would prefer it to be completely smooth.

Edit. Unfortunately I am returning the mouse due to the paint bumps on M1. The $70 price tag is a little steep to have these types of imperfections IMO. I think I'll be waiting for the scream1 to release at this point.

Awesome to hear of your unboxing experience. Between OCN and our social media, the feedback has been phenomenal and we're getting to work on improving with the Scream 1!
