Is there any information about if or when this is going to happen. I mean the ec 3360 update is almost a year on the market. What the **** is this ****ty company doing besides selling overpriced mice with bad qc and even worse coating? I swear if their shapes werent so damn good they would have gone broke years ago.

I really would like a white FK2 with smaller feet and 3360.
A lot of us (ex) FK2 or FK1 users would like that tbh. Until then, Dreammachines & Nixeus offer the best solution imo.

They don't need to. There's no other mouse manufacturer out there putting out smaller mice with good shapes and decent sensors. They have no competition in that space.

That's a super subjective assessment (in particular being the only one that offers small mice with good shape part). What they are doing is also illogical. Because Zowie is not a well established brand the average user knows.

They are still fairly niche and cater foremost to the hardcore serious type of (fps) gamer which are the ones that actually do care the most about having the latest and greatest sensor.
In particular if the sensor offers noticeable advantages for low cpi players - which again are much more common among the marketed audience than among gamers in general.

"Strive for Perfection" or use 3310 in late 2018 - pick one!

Who else makes mice as small as the fk2/za13 with a good sensor, and a usable shape?

Logitech, Roccat, Dream Machines from the top of my head.

G203 is #5 of most sold gaming mice on Amazon G Pro #18, the FK2 makes it barely into the top 150 at #142.
Your argument that Zowie has a dominant position on small mice sub-segment and thus doesn't have to update the product range doesn't make much sense.
