Hi, i really wanna buy one of these 2 mice (Razer deathadder, Zowie EC2-A). I mainly play tryhard minecraft PvP and CS:GO. I am looking for a comftorble mouse which is easy to jitter click a high amount of cps with (thinking about 7+ cps). I don't care about changing the dpi on the go. I always change my sensitivity in game. I have middle sized hands and am a claw gripper. I don't care allot about the LED'S. I care a bit about the price. I really wanna make the best purchase (sorry if i misspelled some words, i am dutch and my english is not the best).

I voted for the Deathadder purely based on the feel of both mice. A friend has the EC2-A, I have a Deathadder. I've obviously used the Deathadder a lot, but I have only held the EC2-A, so I can only vote based on that.... and I felt more comfy holding the Deathadder than the Zowie.
I reckon you should include the EC1-A in the vote also, it's a little bigger, right? Might be something to consider also.

Deathadder shape is akward compared to most mice. EC2 is one of the best if not the best shape there is. This isnt even a competition.

Depends on your preference:
DA is a wider mouse that feels bulkier
DA has better side buttons
DA shape is a comfy shape but the thumb is basically forced into a certain location by the buttons and curves on the sides
DA buttons are mushy and don't feel crisp
Ec2a is smaller than the da and a lot narrower. Has a safer shape, but can feel small with 19cm hands and larger.
Doesn't have rubber sides which is a big plus since it won't wear out and offers better grip with different hand moisture.

Ec2a has better click feel but really won't work that well for jitter clicking.

And the wheel on the ec2a is 16 step. It feels rough and can be a headache to work with in desktop environment

I am too sleepy to fully answer currently but I had to post a question to your answer.

DA awkward to most shapes? it's one of if not the most popular mouse ever, still one of the most used mice today. Practically alllllllways a best seller on Amazon, they sell like hotcakes around here in my area at stores. Maybe it is awkward to you personally(maybe that is what you meant lol). The mouse and shape are Legendary.

It not being a competition is hiiiighly debatable there.

Having used both, the EC is more comfortable but I played better with the DA; choice is up to you!

DA will give you an easier time spamming clicks.
