So I'm kind of lost. HaiiYaa, any suggestions? Anyone else?

Depends on if you like hardpads which I guess you do as you are using the 4D

a mionix propus 380 is great for the sensor in the sensei

I do like hardpads, but I'm not necessarily "stuck" on them. I am interested in cloth pads that offer similar performance for the sensor in the sensei such as the 9HD and Hayate.

Hayate and the shiden-kai(hybrid glass/cloth) is great clothpads for the sensor

Well unfortunately both of those pads are sold out on Amazon. There is only the shiden-kai in a S which I definitely don't want. They have the HIEN Hard and HIEN VE in Large (black) and that's it. frown.gif Looks like Mionix is my only option at the moment.

The Kai.G3 HARD is the only cloth pad I've used that allows the sensor to perform up to rated specs.

Too bad I prefer more friction.

@HaiiYaa
Thank you for the great review! smile.gif
I ordered the Sensei yesterday, it should be here tomorrow. cool.gif
My question is, how can I test if the mouse has accel at my pad? Is there any software for it? I have a QcK Heavy for a couple of days and I am very happy with it. Do you think I can live with 5% accel? Or can you live with it? Bad question, I know. wink.gif
Sorry for my bad English --> I am from Germany smile.gif

Thanks for the review and the pad recommendation, Sensei and Mionix Propus 380 on the way.

May I ask what cm/360 you play at?

To answer your questions, the sensor (Avago 9500) has an acceleration flaw on all surfaces. Most people generally can't feel or don't have a problem with it. I think you can live with the 5% accel unless you're used to how a specific type of sensor works.

-If you use your wrist to play games, I don't think the sensor acceleration will bother you as much.

-If you use your arm with all forms of acceleration off, then muscle memory might be a little harder to grasp, but it's not impossible.

Hmm hard to say. My straightedge says it is around 13,14 or 16 cm/360°.
I dont know how much dpi my current mouse has. It is this one, but the only text about dpi was on a site in russian.

Yes, i think it has 400 dpi.
I play with the fingertip grip and the most of my movements comes from my fingers (primary) and wrist (secondary). Windows sense is on default and ingame sense is on default, too (Battlefield 2: 1.00).
Thank you very much for your answer, its nice to hear, that the accel might be not a problem.

Skylit said it all

And with your 16cm/360 i doubt the acceleration will cause any problem to you. You can also lessen it with a mousepad thats better for the sensor
