This product only released in China. I'm not live in China, I'm not Chinese,either. So I can't support A/S.

And only buy it in Taobao. You can't buy this in Aliexpress!

But 40$, paw-3328 sensor, and 95g weight!!!

If you hate Basilisk's 107g weight, this is perfact!

I just bought an EC2-A and I absolutely love the shape but my problem with the mouse is how warm it gets since my grip is a full palm. I was planning to buy the white version and was wondering if the white coating also warms up easily?

So, first hello first time on the sub.

I've been using a G502 for I believe its been a year and half now and while I love the shape and all the functionality the mouse has its really starting to bother me with the weight of the mouse and this is with all the weights removed. I mainly play FPS's so especially after games my hand hurts and I'm just struggling to find a lighter mouse to replace this with.

I'll admit I was pretty excited when the Finalmouse Ultralight was released but lurking on this sub the past few days I just read nothing but bad reviews in regards to QA.

The Glorious Odin mouse I've seen has teased has intrigued me as it looks similar weight to the Finalmouse with hopefully less QA issues.

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for a lighter mouse for Medium to large hands. Thanks!

19.5cm x 10.8cm and palm grip. I prefer symmetrical mouse. I only do FPS Games

Is it too small? Is the EC2 gonna better to me?

I can get a new Kinzu V2 for ~10USD and was wondering if there are any flaws with the device I should know about before I purchase it.

Currently using a Rival 100 I'd like to try something different

How can people recommend this mouse as their #1 under £30. All 3 I have had a pretty loud rattle inside. I thought it was just bad luck with the first 2 but 3 in a row? That's just poor build quality. Note to self stay away from Logitech. Find it funny that I have had more 5 mice under £15 and not a single problem. My Steelseries Rival 110, not a single problem other than its too big. Never again.

My hands are 20 1/2 x 10 1/2 and I use palm grip. My deathadder broke and wanted to make the switch to zowie to see if I like the shape. Also is there any advantage to using an ambidextrous mouse, like consistency in aim? I’ve only used ergo mice before

Since I start playing pc my mouse was a a4tech x7 f4 but at the moment the sensor it’s not working anymore can you guys help me to find something similar to the x7 cuz I really like that shape. The price it’s not a problem . I play CS:GO and RB6 , my grip it’s hybrid a mix of claw and palm.

I currently have a Razer Deathadder Chroma that´s starting to die ( double click issues, not being able to hold when clicking and dragging or just holding when zooming in when playing fps). I´m leaning towards the SteelSeries Rival 310 but also eyeing the Logitech Gaming G403 Prodigy. Between these two which one do you recommend? And if not one these, which one would you recommend up to 70-80€?

  • The shape is nothing like the FK series, imo. When I think of the FK line, I think of super low profile mice with large surface area. The Logitech Wireless PRO reminds me more of the EC2-A or the ZA series than the FK series. I think if they made the hump low profile like the FK1, I would have loved the shape. I really liked the shorntened length compared to the FK1 (hate the FK2, too narrow., Zowie, where the hell is the FK2+ ?).

  • The coating seems decent, but it's ridiculously dry. My hand was constantly slipping around when picking it up. Maybe if you wear the coating down after time it would give more grip, but super slippery out of the box for me. The Zowie coating is better for me on cold/dry days, but I think Logitech would be better in hot/humid days.

  • Clicks feel good, side clicks feel good, scroll is nice. The M1/M2 might be a tiny bit too light if you're use to Zowie, but they're 20x better than the ultra sensitive clicks my wired GPRO has. I couldn't rest my fingers on that mouse without accidentally clicking 5 times every 30 minutes.

  • Great wireless performance, didn't notice any lag over the FK1 and dongle is plugged into monitor opposite side of the mouse. Also wireless not a huge upgrade if you're using paracord.

  • Battery is good, lasts a few days for me and charges really fast.

  • Solid despite being so light, no creaking, rattling, etc.

  • Mine does not rub M1/M2.

  • Mine does have PCB/Sensor shift when plugging in the charging cable. I think after XXX times of plugging the cable in/out so many times, you could possibly wear down whatever is holding it in place and your sensor position could essentially move around with use normal use.

  • DPI LED are really sleek. The DPI buttons are tiny little dots that have RGB support and color cycle. I usually hate RGB, but it looks really clean with the Logitech logo off and just having tiny little dpi RGB lights on.

  • The detachable parts feel surprisingly solid. I thought it was going to feel cheap and wobbly, but they're using some really strong magnets.

Part Number: 810-006152

Verdict: I like it, but I'm sending it back. I can't justify keeping a $120 mouse I'll use maybe a few times a year. If it was $60, would be easier to toss in the drawer graveyard to take out and play with once in a while.

In Australia btw. Prices are in AUD.

Before any of you suggest i get a Revel FIT, I've already ordered parts to update the G400 and have it as a secondary for MOBAs/RTS.

My 3 main consideration are the the Zowie EC1-B, DM1 FPS and buying new in box Kana v2 from China and replacing the cable and feet.

I feel like I'd prefer the EC1's shape as it is the same height as the G400 which is pretty perfect for me but I'm a little bit reluctant to buy it because I've heard Zowie are pretty bad in the current market.

I've heard a lot of good things about the FPS and it is a far sight cheaper than the EC1-B ($80 vs $110 incl shipping) especially because I wouldn't have to replace the cable.

Kana is ok. Bit slender for my 21.5cm by 12cm hands though.

Open to other suggestions.

I really like the shape of the Deathadder but I've gone through 2 and both have had issues so im deciding to switch to something else. Are there some better mice that have around the same shape?

I have tried THREE (!!!) different mamba elites and all of them had scroll wheel or side button issues. In short, fuck Razer.

However, the shape of the new Razer is sooooooo good. Is there anything similar as far as shape goes?

I have 19x10cm hand and use palm grip. Literally, the Razer mamba elite is damn near perfect from my short time with (all three of) them. I just cannot believe their quality control is so horrendous. I wanted the mouse just work - it was the wired version and not the new wireless version - because it felt so effect for my hands and grip but,goddamn, you can’t make one without issues out of three? I even tried two different stores in the area.

/me sad

Thanks for info on anything similar in shape.

I was thinking about zowie mices for a long time. I do like their shape a lot but I think a 60$ mice with 3310 isn't worth it while there are high performance sensors such as: HERO, 3366, etc. . So Is it really a bad time for buying a zowe mice? Should i consider other mices (btw my hands size : 19cm length 9cm width/ palm-claw hybrid grip)

My two options for a new mouse at the moment is a g703 / g403. I held both at my local best-buy and I can’t notice a difference between the two. Before I buy is there even a difference besides the wireless charging technology?

I never owned a wireless mouse before but personally I’m getting tired of the cable, is there any other wireless mice similar to the g703 that I’m missing out on? Primarily for FPS.
