ZOWIE GEAR RELEASES the EC eVo CL Series Gaming Mouse

ZOWIE GEAR has released a new version of the successful and innovative ZOWIE EC eVo series named the EC eVo CL.

The new CL Series is named after Anton 'Cooller' Singov, a Quake legend who has been working with ZOWIE GEAR for the last few months. ZOWIE GEAR and Cooller have combined their passion for competitive gaming, this is the first step in the partnership and it is unlikely to be the last.

Cooller has been active in the Quake scene for over ten years; to this day he still competes and enjoys playing despite leading an incredibly busy life. Having used the ZOWIE EC2 in the past Cooller wanted to bring the feel of the ZOWIE EC2 and the coating on the ZOWIE FK into one mouse.

ZOWIE GEAR acknowledged that there are gamers who prefer a faster scroll wheel. With the new model comes a 24-step rotation wheel compared to the standard 16. ZOWIE GEAR have made this choice together with Cooller because Quake gamers tend not to use the scroll wheel to change weapons compared to other games. The increased speed is not the only change as the click feedback of 24-step is also a little bit lighter than the original 16-step, this is down to a matter of preference. The new CL series has white sides, a black top and red side buttons to be aesthetically pleasing in its Quake colours, representing ZOWIE, Cooller and his Quake achievements while standing out from the competition.

The ZOWIE EC was the first series of mice to land on ZOWIE GEAR's production line and the demand for it is still increasing worldwide. ZOWIE's concept of competitive gaming gear has been accepted and appreciated by the community. This has been done without losing focus on improving the products and providing gamers' with different choices to suit their needs, as you can see with the EC eVo CL.

2300 CPI max? That's ok up to 1920x1080. After that you will either have to scroll like mad on the pad or use Windows sensitivity settings, which will lead to distortion- both ways ain't ok. But up to full HD it's alright I guess.

I use 450dpi on my 1920*1080 display. However in games if you have an FOV around 90ยบ 450 is the bare minimum (an increment in the mouse movement is roughly = 1 pixel). 1150dpi is more than enough for to have precise movements at 1920*1080P.

Zowie mice do what they are supposed to: track you movements flawlessly.

This is a little frag movie featuring cooller:

I'm using 800 DPI for 1920x1080 and I'm a wrist-anchored fingertip gripper (so I require more sensitivity than most). No one at 1920x1080 needs their DPI in quadruple digits.

Most fps pro players use 400 or 800 and very few 1600. I personally use 1600 and the maximum I ever tried out was 2400 on a Razer laser mouse. That really seems to be the maximum limit if your intention is to actually shoot other people, I found out that the setting was horrible for long range shooting and I actually ended up adapting my style and using more close ranged weapons like shotguns to destroy people at close quarter combat. That's the only benefit that high sensitivity like this can bring in fps, in a room or other part of the level where the distances are very small, you have a big advantage as your turn rate is much faster than the other players at 400 or 800. That's why I settled on 1600 as it also allows me to also have some precision at longer ranges. Cause yeah this is what this mouse is about and not the damn Windows desktop.

As for the mouse itself I cannot say much other that I'm using this exact sensor right now in my CM Storm Recon with a normal lens at 1600DPI and it's the best sensor I ever used. I dunno about the custom lens and the weird DPI steps this mouse has but I assume it will do pretty good.
