Yeah it's super grippy until like 15-30mins into the session, then it's a bar of soap. Maybe they'll release the 3360 ZA13 with lighter buttons.

Can't you sand down the glossy one with a sponge like many people did on their divina ? Then you would have the best of both worlds

Now I just wish I can go back in time and get another G303- aswell

WindInSummer I totally get what lots of people say about ZA11 regarding comfort but a lack of control, but it may heavily depend on what game you play.

It has been a revelatory experience as I came back to it, I had gotten a few Zowies to finally try that were heavily discounted and have used them on and off for a period of a month or so.

Had already used it (always keep two mice plugged in, and have for the longest time now) when I played a bit of Apex, and I did as well or better with it than the G403 which has been one of my main mice.

And I remember seeing a lot of Overwatch avatars. And it makes a lot of sense. Because the way I have grown to use mice and also what I mainly play, which is OW, and it has changed for sure, I was actually hindered by it. Then now, also being in better shape in general, I tried CS:GO. And it just works so well. And the mouse is so damn comfortable. And I am doing better than ever in Apex, lots of fun all around.

StillBlaze Does anyone remember the guy who made a 3d printed tray for his za13 so he could just place his 3366 sensor inside? it might have been from a g303.

ZA13 is my love but every time I buy another mouse to test it's painfully obvious that the 3366 to me is much better.

Is the ZA12 similar to the old Razer Copperhead, or what is the ZA model which is most similar to it?

My hand is rather wide with respect to its length, I find most mice to be too narrow. However large mice like the EC1-A are long. Among large mice, the Deathadder is fine, but is also quite heavy. Another mouse I like is EC2-A, maybe just somewhat small, and a third one is the Mionix Avior. As I like the click feel of my FK2, I'm wondering if another Zowie could be a good compromise.
That's about my handsize, and I will say ZA11 will be absolutely too huge for your hand, unless you plan to do full palm grip. After that I went to the too small FK2, and immediately exchanged it to a ZA13. The ZA13 didn't feel too small except for the narrowness. ZA12 is on the border of being too high with the hump, and still feels a bit narrow.

I'm thinking that FK1 would be good, as it's almost as high as the ZA13, but much wider, even wider than the ZA12.

18/9 cm hands here. I would say from ZA series probably ZA12 or ZA11. However if you didn't like how long EC1-A is then you most likely won't like ZA11. Currently using ZA12 as my daily driver. From FK series length wise FK1 and FK1+ are same as EC1-A, but also a bit wider than FK2.

So a larger FK would be most likely FK1+ . If you did prefer the length of FK2... I would also look into Nixeus Revel although it's not one you asked for. From ZA's I'd start probably from 12, cause 13 is going to be too narrow for 10cm+ wide hands

I would be curious to know this too?
