Unfortunately, those are the only three cpi steps on the zowie mice. They don't come with any software to control sensor settings.

I wish mice were less heavy. Using 36 cm/360 with Zowie AM, I feel it's too heavy and you can't grip it properly. Too slippery. Arm gets really tired if you game alot. Wish mice were like 60-70g.

What's it with all the weak arms? Seriously, my arm or wrist have never been tired my any mouse weight. I prefer light mice as well, simply because they feel better, but I never had muscle problems. And I don't really work out much other than carrying my son around or some pushups now and then.

I think the problem is more ergonomical, like a wrong position of the upper body or arm relative to the desk. It must be something like this because I can't imagine anyone being that weak that some 100g mice really tire your arms (as long as you play games that allow for some rest, if you move like crazy all the time of course the arm gets tired, but that's regardless of any extra weight).

I agree with Ino sometimes the shape or coating of the mouse can make it feel like it weighs a lot more than it does, for example my hands grip glossy mice but rubber coated mice slip a lot so the regular deathadder is normal weight to me but the black edition feels like it weighs a lot more since I have to grip it harder to prevent it from slipping my hand tires very fast.

Probably grip plays a part in it too. But playing games like QL for extended hours would make any arm tired. With low sens.

I really doubt doing pushups or lifting weights have anything to do to solve the problem though.. Moving your hand around constantly for say 10 hours a day should itself be some good workout if its a routine.

Not 100% sure tho. Hopefully I am not the only one experiencing this tongue.gif
