Best mousepad for CM Spawn? - Page 2

post #11 of 25
With firmware 30a it tracks on every pad, but the LOD is too high for me. With the 31 it skips/jitters on anything that has a slightly bright color imprinted on it. So you should choose your pad according to your preference for the lift off distance.

But again, also believe that a good mousepad is also very much up to the person using it, how you feel about it. And yeah, since it's optical, mostly and pad will do - so choose the one you feel like suites you the best. smile.gif

I'm with you on the Goliathus, great pad. I'm rocking the control edition on my DeathAdder, I prefer a slightly grainier texture to a smooth texture, so it gets the job done nicely.

With firmware v31 max speed is quite low. If you are a low sens player you'll experience negative acceleration, even on black mousepad.

its true i used 4 different kinds of clothpads(ss 4l, goliathus speed black,frag edition and xtrac ripper)with ver 31,32,30a the mouse skips on very fast flick shot movement.tested on paint also just to confirm.if you are low sens player and trying to do fast swipes on cloth even black goliathus speed it will skip.

on the other hand on my black thunder9 hard pad sersor is perfect like the da but with very lower lod=perfect. Although DA tracks perfect but i prefer spawn ergonomics for fps.

I went with the puretrak talent. I will update with results when amazon ships my spawn.

Do you guys think I will have problems on my Steelseries 9HD? It's black but it has small gray steelseries logos all over.

Haven't gotten my Spawn yet, also waiting on amazon.

im guessing it would be fine since it tracks gr8 on my thunder9 pad which WAS black but now after some 5-6years of wear and tear its actually gotten shiny if you directly under some lights.

I think the sensor should track fine on all dark and semi-dark hardpads.
someone mentioned it dosnt track well on razer scarab but that i consider to be a hybrid and not 100% hardpad....i maybe wrong though!!

The 9HD works fine, tested here (FW Ver. 32). I have switched to cloth pads though, some time back, currently using the Mionix Sargas 460. It's pretty nice, and almost solid black. The graphics on it are very small and located towards the corners, so they never get under the sensor during gameplay. The Sargas seems to be higher quality than the QCK+ (which also works just fine with the Spawn). That's not a dig, the QCK's are very good, especially for the price. The Sargas 460 seems to have slightly more friction than the QCK's do, if that's something you're looking for. The Puretrak Talent is another great choice.

Thanks! I've been thinking about getting a larger mouse pad and transitioning to cloth. Gonna hold off a bit on that though.
