Yes.

Small review:
- QC is good except that RMB makes a "sticky" noise and LMB/RMB a "hollow" noise when tapped
- LMB/RMB have little to no pre-travel; clicks are on the heavier side
- side buttons are good
- scroll is good; MMB click is slightly too heavy
- coating is very light rubber
- cable is soft rubber and very flexible
- click latency is 0.9~ms faster than my Kinzu v1
- feet have sharp edges
- shape is overall pretty good if you like to have the hump at the back (I don't); it feels a bit like it's made for bigger hands

Hmm... that’s slightly disappointing at 122mm, thought it would be great. What is your hand size and grip style?

My hands are on the smaller side. Claw/fingertip.

I currently fingertip grip my S2 and KPOE and I'm planning on picking this mouse up when it hits Amazon US.



I'm a bit worried about what I've been reading with the coil whine and the left click issue, hope I don't regret it.

I’ve never experienced a mouse with coil whine. What is the general cause of this issue? Can it be fixed with a firmware update or is it caused by cheap internal components?

Typically it's either the sensor package itself or a capacitor.

I love this mouse...

yes it has coilwine and yes the mouse feet have no rounded edges and it has no Paracord cable.

But: I still love her!!

The mouse is a dream with a Paracord cable...

I only hear Coilwine when I press my ear against the sensor...

Corepad Skatez Pro 134 Replacement Mouse Feet Zowie for EC1-B / EC2-B let them glide like a dream...

If the mouse clicks sound different, you can easily tighten or loosen the front left or right screw.

What kind of mice have I tested in the last few years? I would say pretty much all... Finalmouse, Logitech GPW, Model O, all Zowies, Dream Machines, Beta G Wolves Skoll, Ninox ,Razer...

I have such a good mouse feeling it is really ingenious... I've preferred the 3389 since deathadder times for whatever reason. I use a 240 Hz/360Hz (Zisworks) monitor and the fast clicks feel really great. Dust2 center door shots were rarely so brilliant ;-)

I hope Zy tests the mouse I think he will love it!!!

I hear the coil whine too, but only when I place my ears against the mouse, inside a silent room. Not sure how would anyone would find it off-putting in a normal environtment, especially during gaming.
The mouse feet could be more rounded tbh, but they aren't scratchy.
