For a mousepad! I've never even paid that much for a mouse.

No I was 2$ off

This is from their facebook

"Artisan gaming mouse pad: The release of HAYATE is about the end of July. The HAYATE can be rolled. The predetermined price is $64.  Appreciation of the yen is painful."

It is the Shiden Mid Medium version. Got it from Amazon here:



I just have to say I absolutely love this mousepad. I have used a lot of them, let me tell you. lol None of them came close to the feel of this but I guess that's what happens when you find something that just feels perfect for you. The surface of this feels very smooth with a hint of fine grain. It has a very nice amount of glide but still retains great control. The problem I have run into is, I just had a hard time finding something with a good balance. Hard pads like the Razer Scarab and Steelseries 9HD they just felt to fast. Then cloth pads I tried Qck, Goliathus, they had to much friction. It was always like I felt that it was on one extreme or the other. Either its super quick and requires some force to stop the mouse and readjust or really slow and required extra force to start moving the mouse. With the Shiden, it feels like Artisan nailed a perfect mix. I never have to really apply extra force to do anything on this pad, it is just a great balance of glide and friction to me. Really love the feel.

As far as tracking goes, DA tracks great on it. No skips, maintains its high malfunction rate. The LOD is slightly lower due to the white color. No jitter. I ran the usual tests some on paint, some with enotus mouse tester, as well as CSS/Bad Company 2 and everything checked out great.

Its the first time I feel tempted to buy a couple more, in case something happens and they stop being made. Overall, highly impressed with Artisan. Buddy of mine has the Hein, really quality pad, needless to say he ordered the Shiden after messing with mine. haha The Shiden Kai, I believe is a faster surface then the regular Shiden. However, I just feel this has perfect balance, any quicker and it would be getting close to the ice rinks of hard pads.

UP for this topic !

You who have these mice, which is the most precise, fluid and responsive to the level of tracking?

I am very curious to know the answer to this great mystery !

Both have a great sensor, I'm personally like the Spawn beacause its more easier to lift on the mousepad.
but I perfer to have a plam grip shape, but I dont like the deathadder much..

I have both (well I have the DA original), and I much prefer the spawn. It really depends on your grip though. If you like to maneuver your mouse with your fingers as well as your arm then I would go with the spawn. If you use a palm grip then go with the DA.

The tracking is pretty much equal, between DA 3.5G (incl. Black Edition) and the Spawn. You can get a lower LOD with the Spawn, by using a dark/black mousepad and firmware Ver. 32. You can get a lower LOD on the DA by applying tape to partially cover the sensor opening. I have also heard of people replacing the infrared LED in the DA with a red LED, as a means to lower the LOD. Overall, I think the build quality of the Spawn is better than the DA (or any other Razer mouse, for that matter). Another nice feature of the Spawn is the scroll wheel, that uses an optical encoder, which always works as intended (no accidental scrolls, no scrolling twice when you scroll once, no scrolling in the opposite direction from the direction you move the wheel). The DA's use a mechanical rotary switch style encoder (as do many, many other mice), and will have these random occasional glitches in scrolling, especially after being well-used.

Please note, I am splitting hairs here, both the Spawn and the DA are fine mice and are among the very best performing mice available. The more important question, deciding between these two mice, is what your grip style preference is, and which one is more comfortable for you to hold.
