Time for new mouse... Replace G502 or move on ?
« on: 01:13 PM - 02/27/17 »
so my G502 is dead due to my dog chewing the cable :(

so the question is... i love the G502 sensor but i only use 4000 DPI... any suggestions ?

doesn't that mean you're cheating in eSports and should be banned ?"

get the Zowie EC1-A or the EC2-A depending on your handsize and gripstyle
(plamgrip and larger than 19cm hands? EC1-A / for any other gripstyle and handsize EC2-A)

i also played around a year or more with my G502 and the xim but lately i upgraded to the EC1-A
the difference is huge, the shape fits your hand much better and also the mouse is much lighter
overall it greatly increases your accuracy

the Zowie doesnt need a driver and has 3200 dpi so perfect for the xim :)
alternatively the G403 which i would say from a technical point of view is the best xim mouse right now




overall i recommend you to watch the following video to be updated on whats currently available and whats worthy to look into

Don't buy the G900. Unless you add the covers on the pinky buttons. You'll hit the side pinky buttons non stop when you shoot or go to press a thumb button. It's so @#$% annoying. Just a heads up.

Yeah the G403 would be my go to mouse if I didn't need all the buttons of the G502.

The ZA11 from zowie is nice but I have hit the ambidextrous buttons once when mid battle but hasn't been a huge issue.
