I've seen a bunch of threads comparing mousepads and never bothered to look at them since I don't use one.

I always preferred the hard tactility of my desk and I've ditched the pad ever since I got my MX518. Most recent gaming mice also have excellent sensors, and every purchase I've made since the MX518 has also had great traction.

Anyway OCN, how many of you guys don't use mousepads?

EDIT: Shoutouts to Smallville for hooking me up with a QCK+ for dirt cheap.

I gotta say, I understand where people come from when they don't use a mousepad. However this cloth surface is sweet and my deathadder tracks just as well as it did on my wood desk.

The padded pad definitely helps my lower palm in comfort. There's no way I'm going back to padless dude!

They aren't worth the money unless your mouse cant track on your desk's surface.

Oak top, mouse does not move smoothly across it, so yes I use a mouse pad

I would like to make one that would cover the whole of my desk, flying with a mouse takes up a lot of space

That's another problem I had, I could never find a mousepad that was big enough. I only use 10in/360 in gaming but would always run into my keyboard or the lip of the mousepad. Total bummer dude!

If you spend the money on a good gaming mouse, You might as well spend the extra $10 to $30 to get the best out of it with a pad.
I use to you the bench top, Now i use a Razer Sphex. im Ever using the bench top again for gaming now. It feels heaps nicer
