I have this mousepad and love it. Paying for an overprice "gamer" mousepad is a waste imo, and this one has a great gel wrist support. and its super cheap!

Disagree on it being a "waste" especially seeing as how many users use a low sensitivity which means you'll need a large pad. Almost every large mouse pad is geared towards gaming.

Different mouse pads will change how the sensor tracks, a mouse pad is not just a mouse pad if you're a serious FPS gamer.

Also for the price you pay for that $8 Belkin pad I can get a much bigger mouse pad for for a little more.

@OP

Your mouse pad should be fine, I would only worry about it if you happen to have issues with it when you get the Deathadder. Knowing the deathadder tracks very well on cloth pads, you'll be A-Okay!

Thanks to both of you for the replies.I figured the surface was very important rather than size.The rubber pad I have was about 16x16,but cut it down as it was to big.It may be me,but I only move my mouse about 3 inch.area when playing BF3.

Been using my desk for years and it shows. I also never move my mouse very far. My wrist wrests in the same spot and my hand moves on my wrists pivot.

I have had the Ratzpad, the Icemat, and the Big brain. Never noticed a significant difference. I still use my old G5 but have used many mice as well.
