I've only used BenQ EC2 and its a slippery soap bar when your hand gets a bit sweaty.

Can't speak for anyone else but i just dislike it because it looks like you let a cow lick it after touching it for like 3 seconds, and that's coming from someone who has dry skin and is washing his hands every 30 minutes. By comparison the coating of a black G-Pro and G403 doesn't show any of those 'slime' spots even after hours of use. That's my issue with it, other than that it's perfectly fine, not slippery for me.

How long have you been using/testing?

What on earth is wrong with your hands? Slime spots?
You been at the doctor yet?
Washing your hands every 30 mins is not good for a already dry skin.

Actual usage around 3-4 hours, I got the mice last week though, together with the white ZA and FK. But due to my schedule bursting at the seams I couldn’t do more yet.

You know what i mean, it takes on the oils of the skin and starts to look shiny. Look i used that cow lick analogy, i had to follow that up properly, even if it made me look like Jabba the Hutt in your mind's eye okay? biggrin.gif

I enjoy the coating on Zowie.
It kinda sticks to my hand when it gets a little moist.
My FK1 almost feel as light as the S1 duo to this.
I barely have to use any force to lift the FK1.

Wow! Might hold of buying a gloss za11 now. You know after this change is made nothing will get tweaked for at least a few decades ?
