Hello HM Community!

Since I am playing CSGO for a while now, I lowered my sensitivity to 800dpi x 2.8 sens = 2240.
I still want to lower my sensitivity, maybe to around 1800.

My current mouse
is the Steel Series Rival for 1,5 years now.
I still love the shape of this mouse, it's great for palm grip and right hand.

My current problem with the mouse
-heavy: since I have lowered my sensitivity I have to move the mouse a lot more.
-size: could be a little bit smaller, my hand does not fully cover the mouse (1,2 cm left from my finger tip).

My hand:
length
: 18,5 cm
width: 9cm
Right handed; palm grip.

The price should be around 65€

Thanks for any suggestions in advance.

I heard it had problems with the mouse wheel and the switches, did that got fixed at caseking: https://www.caseking.de/zowie-ec2-a-gaming-maus-optischer-avago-adns-3310-sensor-gamo-613.html ?

I bought mine first from caseking but after nearly 2 years the sensor had some fails. This version (w/ the white zowie logo) had the mwheel problem, which only happens if you often use the mwheel (for example for jumping). Caseking couldn't deliver another one, so I bought mine from https://www.proshop.de/, where I got the version 2 (w/ the red zowie logo). In version 2 the mwheel is fixed and the switches are a little bit more robust and rigid.

I would recommend to buy one and if you get the one with the white logo just send it back.

Thanks for the information. It seems that all current shops supports the version2 (red zowie logo), so this mouse would be my favorite so far. I will wait for further recommendations for the rest of this day.

You can close this thread now. I watched more reviews of the ec2-a and I ordered it already! Thanks for the help.
