Looking for a new mouse pad for the G9x

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Looking for a new mouse pad. I had a Razer Destructor, It somehow got lost when I did a long distance move. =[ I perfer meduim to large size pads and I like hard surfaces.

I'm currently looking at the Razer Scarab or the Razer Vespula. Not sure what to get. Opinions please!

I know that you say you like hard surfaces but you should really try out a soft pad such as the Artisan Hien or the Puretrak Talent. You'll get a lot more control while keeping a nice glide, especially with the Hien. Additionally they're much more comfortable smile.gif

My first pad was a SteelSeries QCK. Didn't like it. I'm thinking about getting the Vespula, it seems like its the only one I'm always comming back to look at.

I've had a Razer Scarab for almost a year now, and although it is a good and slick pad it gets worn out very easily. The right side of the pad where I use my mouse the most feels quite rough now with lots of friction, and although I've flipped it around and started using the other unworn side of the pad I don't think it'll last very long either. Not really worth the 35 bucks I spent on it in my opinion.
