Zowie

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So guys I have a razer abyssus mirror edition and Im going to buy a Zowie but Im not sure which one I should buy, I read in some places that the Zowie ZA13 is pretty similar to mine, what you guys think?




Thank you for your time wink.gif

ZA13 is a decent choice. Are you 100% set on zowie though? Logitech G-whatevernumber is around the corner and it will probably cost the same + you get better clicks, sensor, latency and customer support.

Yeah im pretty sure about Zowie but I really appreciate your advice, so do you think the ZA13 looks more like mine than the other 2?

ZA13 is the smallest version and should be about the same as old abyssus.

In retrospect I wish I'd gotten the ZA12 instead of ZA13. I'm someone who likes the kinzu, kana, g100s, bst's ninox aurora shapes. I think the way I hold the ZA shape is one which favours the ZA12 due to its more native fitting into my hand. This unnaturalness makes the clicks a little stiffer than I imagine the 12 would be (with my hybrid grip). I'm going to get the new Dream Machine Pro S mouse when I can though.

I quite like my abyssus's shape but hate the mouse buttons, i would say that the abyssus is noticeably wider and shorter than the ZA13. G100S is the most similar in shape to the abyssus from those I've tried but poor build quality and 500hz makes it suboptimal for me.

Going from abyssus to ZA13 might not be as smooth as you think.

What would you suggest then besides the Logitech G100?
post #7 of 15
I've been told (multiple times, plus once recently) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0196J4Y3O/ is the best mouse at the next price point above the g100s

i'm going to pick it up soon

The upcoming logitech mouse/mice waits/wait to be seen
