#15 zowie am help in TF2 General Discussion

The weird DPI steps are all thanks to the different lens Zowie is using on their mice.
Of the three different Zowie mice I've owned the DPI can range from 460-500 for the 450 step, 1180-1300 for the 1150 step, and 2380-2450 for the 2300 step. A lot of it is due to different mousepads changing the dpi of the mouse and some of it is the mouse feet changing the distance of the sensor from the mousepad thus changing the dpi.

If you're finding 450 to be too slow but 1150 to be too high you could try using a windows sens of 5 with 1150dpi for a feel of about ~860 dpi.

What settings were you using before with your old mouse? The slowness you're feeling could be from the bottom of the mouse rubbing up against your mouse pad, the feet on the AM are really thin and they don't give a lot of clearance especially if you like pressing your mouse into your mousepad.

#103 Opinion on Mice? in Hardware

Is it possible that you're slightly lifting the mouse when you swipe?

I once had a DA with really low lift distance due to a tape fix and stacked mouse feet that would "skip" whenever I would RJ, I initially thought that it was due to me hitting the the max tracking speed but I found that I was slightly lifting my mouse at the end of my swipes.

I've seen people have similar problems with mice with low lift off distance after being used to high lift distance. I could see it being a problem in your case since the DA has really high lift off distance in comparison to the EC1.

#97 Opinion on Mice? in Hardware
WithADanceNumberGot the ec1 evo today, I really like the shape and feel of the mouse. However when I try to do a large flick, like when rocket jumping, the mouse skips hard.

Using goliathus control. Mouse is @ 500hz and 1150 dpi.

I'm going to try cleaning my mousepad to see if that helps any.

I just tried my EC1 at similar settings on a Goliathus Control and I can make it skip with a 14"/360, it doesn't skip on my Goliathus Speed though.

You may be able to get around the skipping if you use a different dpi step, I believe that the 1150 dpi step yields the lowest tracking speeds that the mouse is capable of.

Pretty useful command, just put it into your autoexec.

#41 Opinion on Mice? in Hardware

EC1 is pretty similar to the DA, it's a little bit taller and a little bit longer.
Side buttons are a bit smaller and placed higher up than the DA's side buttons, the main buttons sit a bit higher than the DA's since they aren't as aggressively contoured as M1 and M2 on the DA.

Only issue I have with the EC1 is that the mouse feet are really thin so the bottom of the mouse scrapes my Goliathus Control, you can stack the extra feet that you get with the mouse if you have problems or you could get other feet for it.

You'll probably like it if you really like the DA's shape.

#5 Zowie Products (Canada) in Hardware

EC1 - Basically 3.0, DA alternative. A bit taller than the DA and 3.0.
EC2 - Shrunken EC1, it's around the same size as a IMO 1.1.
AM - Narrow ambidextrous shape, kind of like a 1.1 but more narrow. Good claw grip mouse.

For the finishes, the black mice are rubber coated while the white ones are glossy.

Hope that helps, I'm also extremely jealous as I want a white EC1.

hle's very dedicated to improving and he's a genuinely nice guy. He's fun to play with and he has the drive to improve his play.

Don't play CSGO with him though, you don't want to experience that.

#14 New Logitech Products in Hardware

Some extra info here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1373150/new-mice-from-logitech

Basically it's a refresh of a number of their current "G-series" products, good news for G400 users is that they've added additional strain relief for the cable.

They'll be available starting in April for US customers.
