Zowie FK1 vs Razer DeathAdder Elite

Pretty different mice, the DeathAdder is a much larger mouse, much wider and taller than the FK1.

The DeathAdder is an ergonomic shape that is very well loved, the FK1 is an ambidextrous shape that is very well loved, they couldn't be more different from each other.

The DeathAdder has a flawless sensor, the FK1 unfortunately has a sensor that can potentially spin out.

Both have good cables and okay buttons.

There isn't a real recommendation here, it comes down to your preferences and the size of your hands.
