ZOWIE FK1 and FK2 mice have been very popular among fans of ambidextrous shapes, but ZOWIE understands that nothing is perfect. This includes the shape of mice. ZA series comes as an answer for the gamers who want to rest their palms on the mouse and those looking for a mouse which is easier to lift with a claw grip. In stark contrast with the FK series, the new ZA series has increased height on the back of the mouse to cater for people who like ambidextrous mice but want to be able to rest their palm comfortably on top of their mouse.

I love my FK1, and other than the click latency, my only problem with it was the lack off "ass". These mice will fix those two problems (I'm pretty sure that after that the new EC series fixed the click latency problem, these will have low latency as well). These seem like the perfect mice for me.

Hmmm, not sure about the position of those side buttons, looks to me like avior 7000 levels of accidentally clicking the far side.

Only one side active at the time, you can set it which one.

I am using a FK1 at the moment and I also would prefer a bigger back. I think this will also fix another problem, the increase in height might make the mouse even more comfortable for claw grip and make it less likely to hit the right side buttons accidentally if you have a big hand, which is something that does happen to me.

So yeah looking forward to this.

It is not about the side buttons being active but more about the annoyance when you accidentally click them. It would be better if Zowie included a small plastic cap that you could put on the side of the side buttons that you don't use, this way the whole side of the mouse if free for your pinky and ring finger.

I can set them to do nothing on the avior as well, it still is annoying and distracting enough for me to never use the mouse.

Though I don't have any trouble with the fk1/2 buttons so hopefully this one will be better. Just at first glance the avior came to mind. Of course Zowie doesn't use side buttons that jut out really far, so there's that...


Good that they're providing new shapes though.

Here's to hoping they make an improved mico with side bottons biggrin.gif

Man Zowie really does pay attention to us. It's hard to resist becoming a Zowie fanboy/fangirl.

I just wish they would address the poor scrollwheels.

EDIT: looking at the side pics, I can't help but think of the Sensei shape. I am excited.

Instabuy!
Sweeeeeeet!

But why are they on maxfps.se yet not on the official Zowie site?
