The 3360 can take any aspect it encounters whilst the 3389, is quite choosy about it's surface.

Is the scrollwheel still the same and are the sidebuttons (especially ec series) still the same? Is it possible to change the wheel itself?

Click structure has been improved and clicks should be noticeably lighter. What I hoped most for the ZA13 refresh.

ZA13 click resistance: 55g, ZA13-B: 45g.

That's not okay. It's why you've never seen any MOBA player on the planet use a Zowie mouse.

The main problem with the Model O- for me is that the LOD is too low and changing it in the driver just makes tracking worse. They somehow gimped their firmware to not work right because other mice like the Sensei 310 with 3360 don't have this bizarre LOD issue and track better. Try placing the Model O- on a white paper towel (makes LOD higher).

The feeling of the tracking is WAY better than on a black mouse pad. I think the mouse might actually be usable with a white mouse pad, but I don't have one. You can tell the tracking is clearly gimped on a black surface.

I did use a Zowie Za-12 old version to play MOBA game Dota 2 and it had doubleclick after several months lol. Zowie switches are not as great as other brands and I feel a little pressure when click it maybe better than China Omrons but nowhere as needing force as True Japan Omrons like Ducky one. After got my Zowie repaired doubleblick with warranty I am no interested in using any Zowie mices anymore. However Zowie mice have better shell quality than Logitech mice but still oily, sticky, slippery after heavily using. Even Logitech G403 is more accurate than any old Zowie series in sensor comparison (mouse test on someone's youtube) and maybe Zowie has improved the sensor tracking in newer versions.

To me now quality mice must have quality shells, great quality sensor, buttons, layer boards, shape the last thing might consider because I can adapt to shape after several weeks using them.

However after using Realforce mouse I think it's the superior version to any Zowie-EC series. Both share similar shape, but Realforce is no doubt better in any categories.

Buying more mices and spending more time on them to find out which one is your true mouse is really an infinite task so please do not give up. Consider it is as an Audiophile hobby so there is no true end-game. No mouse is perfect.
