I find the Zowie S2 shape to be awful, but I aim extremely well with it. Is it the sensor?

Both my ZA13 and FK2 are absolutely amazing shapes for my hand. I feel super comfortable holding either of them, but playing CS:GO I simply aim much better with the S2 even though I find the shape to be clumsy and uncomfortable.

Outside of the game I dont even feel confident holding the S2, but while playing I somehow end up getting much more kills with it than other mice.

I'm suspecting the sensor as I definitely feel like the 3360 feels more snappier/faster at precise flicking than the 3310 but im not sure.

Does anyone have the FK2-B and original FK2 who notices a difference in sensor/aiming? I'm super tempted to try and get the FK2-B but I'm scared of wasting my money to end up with 2 FK2s.

PS. I already have the model o-, it's way too light for me + i dislike the holes.

3310 in zowies is not great, you can get used to it and perform very well. but if you are going from another good mouse, you will see how bad it is.

Latest model made from this company.

Live life to the Full here, don't hesitate to collect more mice because it's the best way in finding your "End-game" model.

I feel same way. But in my case I think it is because I am forced to grip it less aggressively, due to it's much lighter clicks (Even though I have swapped switches and sanded the shells on both the ZA13 and FK2). Personally I think the 3310 feels better, or atleast indifferent about it, but it could just be that I am more used to it.

My best scores in Aim Hero and Kovvaak are recorded with mice I find completely uncomfortable. I think it's more to do with the shape than the sensor.

Some shapes can feel worse while playing but still offer better comfort in long gaming sessions, that might be a factor as well

serious question - i'm trying to learn more about that which I've used forever but grossly under-estimate.

what would the benefit be behind a polling rate button? (aside from not having to deal with it in software) but i mean, actual use case advantages to turning down/using a different polling rate from max?

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.
