Zowie

S1

General Thoughts

This Zowie shape should seem familiar as it's a modified FK, basically not as long and a bit taller. As always, one of the best shapes around, Zowie have been the masters of shape for a long time, with many other companies only matching them by copying and then slightly improving. The length of the FK was one of the main issues I had, so I'm really happy to see them make it shorter. The Razer Viper would be my choice in this size range, but the S1 is still a great choice, but as of September 2019, it feels like Zowie is being left behind in the trends. I hope to see them improve their cables and lower their weights, then we should see them back on top. Either way, great mouse, definitely worth a look, especially if you were considering buying the FK. No replacement for the FK1+ though and if you already have an FK, there's no real point upgrading unless you need the 3360 sensor. I mentioned a slight issue with the buttons in the review. This was only on the early copies as far as I can tell, all my new copies have been good and I've heard the same from others.
