The whole "Gaming mouse pad" thing's a big ripoff. There really isn't much difference between those "Gaming" mouse pads and any old fabric mouse pad they give you for free at a business expo.


Have you ever used a good mousepad ? Like the razer sphex (wich is more like a desktop skin) or the SS 9HD, not to mention the Ironclad or the puretrak deluxe.

LOL. Definitely an insane amount of difference between a generic mouse pad and the Artisan I am using currently. It's like saying whats the difference between a $10 domes keyboard an an MX keyboard. Yes it is that drastic.

Just wondering, can you roll up the newer Artisan mouse pads? I thought I remembered reading the newer ones can be rolled up or folded, but I couldn't find any concrete information about it on the website or elsewhere.

I use the Qpad cloth, it's really comfortable for long gaming sessions.

I had to look on my pic while I'm here at work to see what I was using :

I have the 1030 Original.  I tend to like the Course side for smoothness and speed although the smooth side might be better for precision , it seems to collect too many oils and such slowing down the mouse.

It looks like now they allow customization.

You can roll Artisan, but you must roll it with the surface on the outside or it cracks it.

I have a Razer eXactMat, but I don't use it because my wooden desk is exactly what I want in a mousepad.

i use a moinix propus, which i really like, but i am a high sensitivity gamer so it is much more real estate than i need. also have an x-trac pads ripper xxl, which covers your entire desk. worked very well with my deathadder, but not with my g9x at high sensitivity. works just fine with the g9x at any resolution below 2000 dpi.

Right, got my Artisan Hien Hard Medium this morning. At work so not using it with my G9/Imperator (instead with a MS Intellimouse) but I've gotta say it's quite nice.

I'll keep you guys updated.

Anyone tried baking paper? I know someone that swears by it, might give a few layers on top of the PureTrak a go.

Technically parchment paper, which makes sense - its basically VERY thin paper, covered in a thin coat of silicone.

aka greaseproof paper, a type of cooking paper coated in wax so grease and oil do not stick to it.

I can see that working well but being a pain in the ass tying to get it to stay put.

The waxed type would be terrible! You would get wax shavings all over the place and up in the sensor! The teflon type would be ok, but you would still probably have to replace it every couple days.

Teflon mat with whole underside of mouse covered in teflon.

Interesting to think about things like this.

OK guys, I use a Logitech G500 and I currently have a Qck Mini but I want a new mousepad. I want something that's going to be good for my mouse but I also want something twice the size of my Mini and something a bit thicker if possible. Any ideas?

I don't know if I've said so yet in this thread, but I've actually found a mouse pad I like. it has the least static friction of any mouse pad I've used and it's so slick it's off-putting to people who aren't used to it.

Behold, the Razer Scarab. At 39.99, a daunting investment, but having been noted as the slickest pad available, and seeing it hasn't worn out insanely quickly, I can easily recommend this.

To this point, I have noticed no signs of wear and tear, and I've had it since May 27th, 2011. It's holding up brilliantly for a hard pad, especially since I don't play on terribly high sensitivity so there's a lot of movement on the pad. I will say the feet on my lachesis are very small so that may reduce the amount of wear and tear that actually occurs, but I guess that makes it a good combo. The mouse reduces wear and tracks brilliantly, and the pad reduces static friction to the lowest I've ever used. A great combo.

Now, if I could figure out why in the world my mouse keeps dying on occasion I'd be set! I wish there was a better mouse for lefties, but I hate the deathadder and the new logitech mouse isn't that great. I should get a sensei and try that, I suppose.


I decided to get a new mousepad recently, and so I set out to find the perfect mousepad for me.  This Razer mousepad was really impressive, extremely slick with a nice solid feel.  I borrowed it from a friend who's been using it daily for about 6 months, and it was in fantastic condition still.  Personally I found that it was too smooth for me, and I've since ended up with a pad with just a bit more friction which suits me better.  Just thought I'd second the recommendation for anyone who wants an extremely slick hard mousepad though, this was definitely one of the better pads I tried (and I tried quite a few).

On the other hand the Razer Goliathus (control) I tried was absolutely the worst pad ever.  I know some people actually like this thing, and I can't even begin to understand how they can even stand it.

I currently have the XL version of this http://overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GS-000-BB - switching to the XXL when I refurb my room in the new year, it's going to cover my entire desk pretty much.

I've been using a puretrak talent that I picked up on sale. I would have a hard time paying the $30 asking price after shipping for any mouse pad but for what I paid I'm happy. It is a nice step up from the QCK+ which I was using beforehand and loved. I just hope that its as durable and washable as they claim. Only time will tell.

CSHyde still sells the best mousing surfaces without marketing hype or silly naming schemes.  

So few have figured it out yet.

But, I guess the sheeple derive some comfort from having their Ultra Anaconda X-TREME XB4000 Turbo ICE Blasting Mat sitting on their desks.
