24 step scroll wheel
Black base
IR LED

Any thoughts? How does an IR LED compare to a Red LED?

IR is the same as red but invisible. The Deathadder has IR, and it's generally considered one of the best mice.

I wonder if the AM and the non-CL EC evos will get the same treatment.

From what I understand the lift off distance can be even lower than it is with the current red LED Zowie's, DPI steps are supposedly closer to their advertised spec instead of being much higher.

They should've made it completely black, just the scroll wheel looks odd to me. I really like the colour of the old one though.
Edit: should've improved the side buttons too

i like zowie but it kind of bothers me that rather than making entirely new mice they take an old one and just add 1 or 2 things to it.
i guess its "repetition till perfection" or something but its like id like to see something new.

I guess IR LED and better scroll wheel is an upgrade (?), but I don't know why they removed the yellow base. I found that thing pretty neat.
I am going to buy FK in about two weeks and I guess I will go for 1st gen one, considering I don't use scrollwheel in game and it's already pretty good mouse.

Don't fix what ain't broken I guess ? It's not like they announced it as a whole new mouse, just announced some changes to the Fk.

Well, they've got "Strive For Perfection" as their motto. It'd still be nice, though, to keep things interesting.

They should have made the side buttons yellow for the accent.

my biggest gripe with the FK is the huano switches, they're either love them or hate them and I just prefer omron and the side buttons could be better implemented like the ec1/2. the new scroll wheel looks interesting though

Moyredrocket4damn it i just got the 2013 onelol me too =/

Welp, I guess they said fuck it and sent me the 2014 one instead :D
I love the feel of the mouse, but the scroll wheel is sometimes unresponsive and delays itself. Love the mouse, might take a little bit of time to get used to.
