ZOWIE FK2 comes as an answer to the many gamers that showed ZOWIE that the FK1 shape was something they were interested in but was a bit large for their hands. It will also satisfy the gamers who wish to use a mouse with Avago 3310.The Avago 3310 optical sensor has already been on the market for some time and many ZOWIE GEAR supporters suggested that this sensor should be used in the next ZOWIE mouse. Developing a new mouse with this sensor was not difficult. The difficult part was to make a new mouse that upholds ZOWIE standards for competitive gaming gear while maintaining the advantages of the sensor. One key feature for ZOWIE is the low lift-off distance which is important for any serious gamers. After lots of repeated testing, the research and development team was successful, achieving the low lift-off distance for the new model (1.5~1.8mm). All gamers that are interested in this signature feature from ZOWIE will be able to enjoy it in the new ZOWIE FK2.

No, I don't want to install your crappy third-party drivers, no I don't care how many colors combinations my mouse has, no I don't care about adjusting the weight of the mouse, and no I don't care about threaded mouse cord that frays in less than a year and hinders mobility.
- No mouse clutter
- As accurate as my G502
- Great feeling on a large hand
- Wonderful cord
- Wish it had an aim button like my G502 (button that allows temporary DPI reduction)
34 year old gamer. Played CS 1.6 competitively with CAL and haven't stopped since. For the longest time, I had it in my mind that if I could be semi-pro in CS on an old Microsoft Laser Mouse that it shouldn't matter all that much what I was playing with. I still bought whatever I found as the "best reviewed" mouse at the time and rolled with it.
My last two mice purchases were the Razer Taipan and the Logitech G502. I upgraded to the G502 becuase the Taipan, although one of my favorite mice, was far too small for my hand. I constantly felt as if I was tripping over my thumb and pinky.
So, on the advice of a buddy I picked up the Logitech G502. Found the mouse to be of the right size, but the button placement is a bit wonky. The DPI switch is on the top of the mouse, which caused me to accidentally choose the wrong sensitivity randomly while playing.
It was during one of these random slips that I lost my cool and grumbled about it to my friends, one of whom suggested the Zowie. Being impulsive and cursing Amazon Prime, I purchased the Zowie FK1+.
__My Experience So Far
Compared to my G502 in size, there's not much difference comparing them next to one another. They're just about the same length and width. However, the mouse buttons couldn't be more different. The Zowie has an open, simple layout that allows your fingers to just melt around the top without concern of accidentally clicking an unnecessary button. I saw no difference between the mice in terms of accuracy.
The mouse itself feels wonderful in the hand, and I feel like the simplicity in its design actually lifts it above the chique angular design of the Logitech G502.
Razer Viper (yeah, this was their first optical gaming mouse, wow I'm getting old)
SteelSeries Ikari Optical
SteelSeries Sensei Raw
Each one lasted a good 3-4 years under heavy usage and I used them until a component started to malfunction like a button, scroll wheel, etc. The thing to go first on the early gaming mice was the coating and buttons. I can remember I used my MX518 until the left click button started double clicking and the coating was completely peeled off. I replaced it with the SteelSeries Ikari, it lasted about the same amount of time as my MX518 (3.5 years or so). After my Ikari scroll button started flaking out, I was in the market again for a new mouse. I didn't do much research...the Sensei price was decent, I wanted to try a different shape, it had good reviews for the most part and I liked my last SteelSeries mouse. Turns out the Sensei has a laser sensor, every mouse I had used before was optical. I didn't care much for the Sensei shape, it was too small for my hands, which I'd say are average male size. The biggest problem was the laser sensor. It tracked horribly on my Qck+ at the 450 dpi setting. I've always been a low sensitivity player no matter what game I'm playing. I guess the laser mice are OK for MMO or RTS players, but it's pretty much garbage for any FPS game if you want accuracy in your aim. I immediately did some basic research after realizing the Sensei had to go and felt kinda stupid after how easy it was to find a lot of advice suggesting to not buy laser mice for FPS games. Through my research I kept seeing Zowie mice being recommended, specifically the FK series. Gave it a shot considering I wanted anything but the Sensei at the time.
FK1 Impressions so far (6 or so hours of use):
As you can see from my list above, I've had a mix of ambidextrous shapes and ergo. Up until now, my preferred shape had been the ergo shapes for right handed players with my MX518 and Ikari having the most mileage. The FK1 is advertised as a ambidextrous claw grip mouse. Like I said, I have average male sized hands and it fits perfectly. The most comfortable and controllable grip I think for the FK1 is more of a hybrid claw-palm grip. The top of my palm is still on the mouse with just my fingers slightly arched.
The tracking is amazing. Probably the smoothest I've ever used. Makes sense considering the sensor is supposed to be the best. It glides great on my 2nd Qck+ (Sensei tracking was probably worsened by a 6 year old pad, but still not acceptable). I really like the no frills, plug-n-play approach. It gets annoying when you have a program for your headset, keyboard, and mouse. Definitely unnecessary. The DPI change is easy to do and I think the steps are laid out well. I used 400 dpi for CS:GO, 800 for Dota 2/non-FPS games and general PC usage. The left/right click buttons are definitely the stiffest on a mouse I've used. I like it though, last thing you want to do is accidentally click in a game and it really isn't a problem after 10 minutes of getting used to it. The scroll wheel is similar, you won't scroll unless you mean to. I think those features mean the switches will last longer and won't get worn out as fast, but time will tell. The side buttons seem robust like the left/right click too. You can also adjust the lift off distance, the point at the sensor stops tracking, for different surfaces. Out of the box it is set to cloth pads and a polling rate of 1000hz. I haven't seen any issues with either so far.
I have no problems with the FK1 so far and I think it might become my favorite over the pioneer MX518 if it lasts and is reliable.
