for me , the EC1A feels a bit off , but I like the sshape , it could be a bit "bigger" overall , or must be a bit smaller but i think EC2 would be too small ...
but something feels just off biggrin.gif dunno what m but I can perform with it ... , hope Zowie upgrade their Lineup soon with 3360 or 3320 biggrin.gif .... or CM brings the Alcor/Mizar with 3360 ...
Edit:
I got many mices wink.gif
I recognize it most when switching from 3320/AM010 back to Zowie 3310 ...
Avior with Beta Firmware is fine ... , Castor sux ...
Zowie AM always feels fine , but Shape isnt mine ...
etc

Its funny 99% measure quality of mouse by "feeling" and not by testing it for example using aim games with scoreboards. It just makes no sense. "sensor feels laggy" yeah sure lol

ZA11 also had a "better" feeling for me as the ec1

I still don't understand why so many pros using EC1/2 and ZA, and it seems like more and more are switching to Zowie. RUSH for example was using a good old DA 3.5G until recently and now he also switched to Zowie. Don't they notice the lag? One would think that pros want the most responsive mousefeeling.. Or maybe it has something to do with BenQ buying Zowie and now they are forced to use zowie mice ? just recently i have noticed that many more are using them than before. its crazy

Yea Zowie is heavy in the scene, I knew that but dang I had no idea it was to THAT extent.

It makes sense when you think about it. They're one of the only companies out there putting a decent sensor in a shape that isn't garbage.

But all those pros obviously do not have the "feel" that the mice-lords here have, if only they had some modded WMO, then they would be worthy.

But to be fair, in most other places many nice get highly favorable reviews that would be hated here because they target a completely different audience.

Regarding the lag you can just use Dograbab's(?) new mouse tester with the comparator built in and compare the Zowies against other mice. There is no huge motion lag at all.

I would probably think that the people here are exactly the target audience for the zowie mice. High performance, no frills, hardcore gaming? Most here are in. Still though, they don't really cut it for the most part imho. It's the same as with wine. A lot of wines get good reviews, until they get to the elite. They have taste buds that just surpasses the regular reviewer in your local paper. Same here, there are some here that just have so much higher resolution nervous systems that they surpass regular reviewers.

Personally I think only one mouse has ever been produced that's pretty close to perfect, the da 3g. I know you don't like the jitter, but tbh I have yet to experience that. I would love for that sensor to be inside a ec2-a, but if I have to choose between perfect shape (including coating et al) and mediocre sensor and perfect sensor and mediocre shape, I'm currently using the 3g. Btw, not saying there aren't mice that aren't pretty darned close, but since the 3g shape fits my hand fairly well..

Does this mean you do not care for the newer versions of the Da's?
