I love me some FK clicks but...I'm not gonna be picking this up, I'm perfectly happy with my 3090 FK because the 3310 Zowies just feel awful to me.

EDIT: Pack up the 3360, Omron, etc hype.

It's basically:

"Hey guys, buy this while we're busy figuring out to get the 3360 working with the same PCB in every shape before the 3310 goes EOL."

Would a 3360 be fine with their MCU

Yeah, at this rate I'm going to just wait until the Zowie FK1++++ when they're using the 3360, new shell material for softer clicks, new colors/coating (silver), and thicker mouse feet

A big problem with Zowie's short variants is that they're also really skinny, so if you claw grip and want a shorter mouse you also have to deal with it being as wide as a pencil. If anything I would say widening the FK2 is more important than widening the FK1.

Don't worry, after you buy the Zowie FK1+ and a couple of months have passed..they'll release the FK2+ so you can give them another $60. A few months later, the ECA+ will be out...then when Christmas is here you can get your chance to buy the ZA+. Zowie listens guys !

Why am I not surprised this came out?

Just make it wider, just make it taller, just make it longer, etc. Why not make it better? Seriously... Their ambidextrous shapes need improvements, not simple increases in dimensions of the existing design. The EC series has been the best shape they have done so far, hence why they only need to offer 2 sizes rather than 3 different designs

I don't need to buy another FK when I can just add ~6mm of tape and shape it to my hand better. Total waste of money to buy another Zowie for a couple of millimetres. At this point I much rather save the money to buy a G900! That's how bad it's got with Zowie/BenQ.

That's because the Castor uses Omron switches (and the shell is different).

Why make another mold of a mediocre mouse?

They could have done things like: raise the front, reshape the side buttons, changed the arch a little and make the buttons a separate piece. Instead they currently make 6 different molds that don't fulfill what people have been asking for since the release of the AM. Offering different sizes is good if the design is good.
