Insane mouse which is even better then then the older mouse , i can honestly say its the holy grail of mice.
Has an issue with xim4 where wheel up and down buttons, don't work but middle wheel buttons works
side buttons work fine
max dpi: 3200
plug and play no software

I wish the fk 1 had a 2300 setting to compare it to the older fk model.  I have a ec1,2 cl and previously had a fk but it just felt unstable for lack of a better word. Was curious if you had any experience with any of the older zowie mice

yep the dpi is fine.

I used to use my old fk at 2300 dpi and even that felt great.

It uses Huano switches. I prefer the g400 over it.

I don't get it . What's better about this mouse than the g502 for example?

Zowie mice are popular for CS players due to the very lightweight & shape. Also the no software, no bs etc etc so it's good for LAN.

It's also fine for xim. Just because it doesn't have 12kdpi doesn't mean it's not good, 3200 dpi is plenty.

g502 is heavily exaggerated here. There's nothing special about it for majority pc users. There's no reason to go out of your way for it when you have way more options in ergonomics with a 3090 or 3310 sensor.

I can see why the g502 popular for xim usage though. But then again, it's not required as some people like to think it is.

Honest review :

i bought the G502 thinking it'd be the greatest mouse ever, it was for some time.. but eventually my wrist started to get a weird pain in it because of the ergonomics of the G502, honestly it feels like im fighting a transformer it's has some weight on it to eve without the adjustable weights. the sensor is good but its not flawed, its a brandew sensor meaning it can be improved from my prospective, and it cant run properly on other dpi's for some reason ... horrible on 125hz, decent on 250hz, smooth n 500hz, snappy on 1000hz. im saying RIP to my G502 it's eye candy looks makes it hard to say goodbye though lol :"( .



Now onto this hunk of greatness, the zowie fk1.. ive used the G400 i enjoyed it more then the g502. they didnt compare at all, like day and night. when i received my zowie they seem so similar but i prefer the zowie everything is on the fly meaning no software bs, the mouse is as smooth as a baby's bottom, and honestly its responsive and very ergonomic, i can finally claw grip without fighting the heavy transformer no more wrist strain and pulsating fingers. WARNING : This mouse provides superior accuracy, you will experience god like gameplay once you pick it up .

try it out i promise you wont regret it  . : D

yeah i agree with you Legend also i like this mouse more then the g400 due to the fact:
indication of dpi change (LED color changes)
lod (lift off distance) control
polling rate control
lighter weight (as opposed to the g400 109g)
newer sensor, 3310 vs 3090
even less accerlation then the g400s sensor, its just the perfect mouse for pc and xim imho
and if your not into huano switches, you can change them to Omrons switches

It's bigger and it's got a 3310 sensor in it.

The size increase is preference but the sensor is definitely better. I prefer it imo.

No the scroll does not work. The only reason i didn't keep it because the mouse felt so @#$% good.
