This thread is very old, it was me who resurrected it. I have a QcK+ Na'Vi right now with a WMO with hyperglides. And I find that the lod differs over the pad (because of the print), and that it has some static friction (not very much). Moneywise I have no problems at all. I want a large pad that has low static friction and is very even across the board (stable tracking, lod and a even surface). The only thing I seem to find as bad with the talent is that it's not as high as the QcK H/+ or Corepad C1, and that it seems to have a pretty high lod. The height is only a problem comfort wise, as I like to rest my arm on the pad and only use the upper part of the pad, and my OCD makes it hard to just flip the pad 90*.
How much do you think the lod differs between a talent and a heavy with a WMO? I might just go back to the Corepad C1 as I find that pad to be pretty awesome, anyone who has compared the C1 to any of the mentioned above? Would be fun to hear what you think about the pads.
Artisan is out of the question, simply because my OCD would never tolerate a pad that has different speeds in different directions.
