QCK Heavy vs PureTrak Talent - Page 6

post #51 of 59
I already have a Talent as I said in my first post, but it does feel bumpy on big and fast swipes. I played on a standard Qck before and noticed how it felt much more flat. I looked up forums and read about other people complaining about the Talent feeling particularly irregular, without getting any good answer. Since I've read opposite comments about the Qck heavy and it's flatness I was wondering if this lumpy/bumpiness is common to all thick rubber based pads, since my Qck is 2mm , if it disappears with time and how much will it take for the Talent since I've heard complaints from people who had it for over a month and a half.

The bumpiness is something I've experienced with pads other than the Talent like my Goliathus Control and Speed pads, even my Artisan Hien wasn't completely flat.

The Talent is definitely the worst offender IME, both of the Talents that I've owned have had very uneven rubber bases that would sometimes cause the bottom of the mouse to rub up on the mousepad causing more friction. I've seen some people state that machine washing a Talent would fix the bumpy rubber backing but it didn't do much to either of my Talents. I've had one of the Talents for over 2 years and another one for about a year, both of them have bumpy rubber bases and I've put a lot of time into both of them.

hm yeah its true. both pads have these small bumps. but I never actually moved my mouse fast enough across the whole pad to notice :O

only use my talent with my g400 because it makes my deathadder 2013 malfunction at random times and that weird sad too because I was starting to like the mouse pad

Has someone tried Zowie EC1/2 on the PureTrack Talent? I know Zowies mice doesn't like multicolored and I wonder if the design of the pad would cause trouble.

I have the talent and have used the qck+/qck in the past (not heavy though), but the difference in mousing surfaces is so immense. The talent has a much better surface overall in my opinion. It's a lot smoother, more precise and more fluid. I play with low sensitivity and palm grip so a large quick surface is what I'm looking for, and the Talent delivers. Definitely the best mousepad I've ever used. Unfortunately, however, I've come to notice fraying (which seems to be a common complaint from what I've read) of the mousing surface. It's not really a big deal and I've already got so much use out of it. Just flip the pad if you notice one side is fraying. Plus, they're pretty cheap so all in all: much better pad imo.

I'm also not sure what all this talk about lod/tracking is on this pad. I've noticed both are perfectly fine with my IME (and when I had it, deathadder). The texture on this pad doesn't change tracking in the slightest and it's really dark overall and fairly consistent. As far as the stability of the mousing surface overall, I haven't noticed any problems with "bumps" or imperfections really. I've actually noticed that problem more so on both of the qck mousepads I've owned. The whole thing is pretty level.

As far as talent vs. complexity, I've heard people say they're different, but I don't own both of them so I wouldn't know.

Zowie mice are pretty picky when it comes to color. They sometimes skip on multicolored pads. I have heard very good things about Talent, didn't know until today you could buy it here in Sweden... lol. Always wanted to try it. Hopefully EC1/2 doesn't have problems with it.

The Zowies worked fine on my Talent when I tested it.

heavy:
- bigger in y-axis for more comfort laying ur arm on top (cover table edge)
- more control doing big, fast swipes
- looking better (black/simplistic, pref ofc)
- proven in every esports genre like more than any other mousepad


talent:
- feels like a bit higher quality
- smoother glide (though i dont know if thats a pro, just pref again)
- a bit more durable (cannot tell)

both have similar initial friction doing like 1cm small movement changes

i like the heavy more, mostly due to comfort
