neo, heaton, spawn, and many many others use Zowie because they are not forced to get any other mouse, and they just like it
also, Im pretty sure that all the pro players will get rid of steelseries shit in case they are not sponsored anymore
Oh.. do you really think its heaton and spawn who created the mice? I don't think they even participated in creating them... The only thing they probably did is testing the mice, that's it. Heaton and spawn were hired and paid to participate in a strategy that was aimed to attract boys like you, who actually buy the shit zowie says and so they can get more customers to buy their products. Seems like the strategy works pretty well.
i just feel better with it, both have great sensors great shape, gliders, but kinzu is smaller (i like smaller mices yes :D).If you don't like small ones, think about Kana (same sensor as v2pro but larger mouse, and it glows :D), so you wont make mistake if you buy some of them...
Kinzu has a really big issue with multi-colored mousepads, and so does the AM, but it's not nearly as bad.
If you use a team QcK, like Fnatic, EG, Tyloo, etc, you should not even think about the Kinzu v2. The AM will be much better. As for ergonomics, that is up to you entirely, no one can influence your opinion on ergonomics.
The Avago 3090 (ZOWIE AM/EC eVo) is not better than the Avago 9500 in real world situations. It doesn't have any issues handling multi-colored pads, and I can get the Sensei to track at higher speeds. It has a slight acceleration issue (5-10%), but it's consistent.

"Kinzu has a really big issue with multi-colored mousepads, and so does the AM"
No. No such thing on the AM.
"The Avago 3090 (ZOWIE AM/EC eVo) is not better than the Avago 9500"
Avago 9500 has accel, 3090 hasn't.
I like the kinzuv2pro shape and feeling, sensor seems to be terrible though...
Kinda funny if you look at the wheel mouse optical or intelli 1.1 or mx518 they are so much older but seem to have better sensors? How is that possible? :D
Anyway the AM felt not so good I couldnt really play with it...
I sent both mice back and now I play with my mx518 again...
Most of all pros play with neutral or symmetrical mouses/mice (Not fitted for righthanders), so next I will test:
- wheel mouse optical (overclock hz to 500)
- xai/sensei raw (same shape right? Better sensor and weight on sensei raw)
- kana (Is the sensor any better than the kinzu v2 one?)
- kinzu v2 pro again (Maybe I had a bad or used mouse, there were scrachtes on the glides)
And because Im stuck on my mx518 shape I will give:
- EC2 eVo (Neo is a legend :), Shape seems to be a mix of intelli 3.0 (every pro played this mouse) and razer DA)
If I cant use any of them I think I have to stuck with the mx518 though I will miss the placebo effect of playing the same mouse that the pros play... (Hacker COLON at least... ;D)
Please ignore what the pros are playing with. You are mentioning that most professional players use ambidextrous mice and that is simply because of Steelseries-sponsorship. Steelseries have almost only released ambidextrous mice since they started with Kinzu/Xai.
Both the Kana and the Kinzu have cheap-ass sensors so I would say dont even bother thinking about these.
If you can get a hold of a WMO-mouse and can manage the shape of that mouse I would really say that that is the way to go.
But a good option to that is to get the Logitech G400. It has the 1000HZ report rate(plug and play). In my opinion the mouse feels better than the MX518(top and sides) and one great thing is that the sensor is close to perfect in the latest batch.
"In retail stores, you can tell the difference between the older and newer versions by the package's transparent closure labels; G400s without angle snapping have the Logitech logo printed on these labels. G400s with angle snapping have no printing on these labels." http://www.overclock.net/t/1197269/g400-angle-snap..
I just found out that old ms mice have 4000+ or 8000 fps per second while kinzu only has 3600 fps its so crazy how 15 year old mice have a better sensor than new ones that are actually made to play with... haha...
Anyways I heard the kana one is better because of a better lense or something...???
