Overclockers UK, Newcastle-Under-Lyme have announced that they will be stocking the next of the best selling ZOWIE mice, the new ZOWIE FK2 High Performance Gaming Mouse. The ZOWIE FK series of mice are renowned in the world of competitive Esports for high-tech sensors, great grip, driverless features and usability.
ZOWIE GEAR is an innovative manufacturer of competitive gaming gear, founded in late 2008 with a mission to develop the best competitive gaming gear available.
In competitive gameplay, the mouse is highly optimised to be the vital weapon when it comes to winning. Making sure you have the very best accuracy and the fastest click, to ensure you are first to react in a crucial situation whilst playing your game. The outcome of a duel between the top players is often determined by milliseconds, – a millisecond containing a player’s enthusiasm, persistence and dreams. They must play for victory while avoiding the slightest mishap.
The ZOWIE FK2 is based very similarly to the FK1, keeping all of the great features from the FK1 but putting it into a smaller shell for easier comfort to the hands or for those who prefer to use a smaller mouse.
The mouse continues to be ambidextrous, with two thumb buttons on both sides to comfortably serve left and right handed users.
The Dots Per Inch (DPI) can be adjusted from 400, 800, 1600, and 3200, giving the right accuracy and pointing movement to ensure it is suited for you. The USB report rate can be adjusted to 125, 500 and 1000hz at ease.
The Avago 3310 optical sensor has already been on the market for some time and currently one of the market leading sensors. The Avago 3310 sensor was supported by ZOWIE fans, which were listened to and was introduced in the Zowie FK1. The difficult part in production of the mouse is the strict guidelines for competitive gaming and to make sure the mouse upholds ZOWIE standards while maintaining the advantages of the sensor.
One key feature for ZOWIE gaming mice is the low lift-off distance which is important for any serious gamers. After lots of repeated testing, the research and development team was successful, achieving the low lift-off distance for the new model (1.5~1.8mm). All gamers that are interested in this signature feature from ZOWIE will be able to enjoy it in the new ZOWIE FK2.
ZOWIE GEAR has no ambition to become the biggest manufacturer of competitive gaming gear. We just want to be the best. If we can develop products that will increase a gamer’s performance by just 1%, they will do it. This is their mentality.
I for one am very excited to get my hands on one of these based on how good the FK1 was, so keep your eyes peeled at overlockers.co.uk for stock and of course here for our review!
