I think you're giving Zowie a bit too much credence. A special "tweaked" Logitech mouse, while unlikely, would at least be in the realm of believable. But Zowie? huehuehue

Zowie has no variation within their internals, this is completely unlikely to be anything other than a paint job. Logitech has a whole R&D department with lots of prototype builds that they use older or existing shells for, which would explain the possibility of a 3366 in a G100s shell as a prototype thing.

Zowie mice have never felt too great to me. Always felt like cheap knockoff deathadders. I suppose it is just preference since so many people love them... but personally none for me thanks.

Out of all Zowie mice I've tried.. FK series feel most responsive and sensor behavior seems normal. Can't say about ZA series.. since I've only tested ZA13 and 12 but both gave me hand cramps after 15 minute of use. (used them for about 1 day) ZA's sensor position should be around same spot as on FK though?

When it comes to EC-A Series.... something about it's performance and responsiveness just seems off. I thought it was just the original mouse skates, but even after installing hyperglides... it didn't change. Also the coating in EC-A series is just something that doesn't work well with my hand. Gets really sticky and feels like my whole hand is heating up on the mouse.

Just my personal opinion. Used FK series and EC-A for about 2 months. Decided to buy FK1 again since it feels really good in my hand and kinda improved my aiming. Don't want to sound like "that guy" or anything but it feels like when I use it .. it feels like the mouse has built in aimbot.

Just hope I can safely remove the right side buttons.

Probably has something to do with the sensor position. EC-series have a lower sensor position than FK-series in typical grips. I didn't notice anything odd with Zowie firmwares, except that they are using the SROM version (0x0E) which has the CPI bug. Doesn't matter in Zowie's implementation though.

I agree, zowie mice have a lot of lag. Question is how good those guys would be with good mice as opposed to zowies.

Zowie do some good shapes that work well for people that don't have conventionally sized hands and/or want to use claw/finger grips.

As a claw gripper with short fingers there isn't a lot of choice for me in terms of mice with good factors and sensors.

I personally move the mouse at up to 4 m/s and notice no tracking problems with either of my Zowie mice. The buttons are a bit stiff on my older (yellow) FK but that is fixed on my newer (white pre-Benq) ZA.

What about this review...
