I was currently looking for the mionix propus 380 since it got some good reviews and is pretty wide, but I dont find any retailer in europe that has it in stock.
only exception is danish retailers, but they dont ship to germany...

Caseking.de has it, but it says on 10.02, almost a month till it's available. I got my propus from them.

I have ordered the Swift again, lets see how it performs with the AM.
It was my second choice after the propus 380.

Good choice, hope you got the black version, couldnt say much for the blue one, but tracking with the black one is spot on, if you want a slicker feel/less static friction, try out smaller mousefeet, maybe hyperglides ones, smallest ones usually feel better on hard mats, the texture of the pad will be more obvious too. Have fun with the new setup smile.gif

@beute:

I've just seen this thread... so you used the SS I-2 with the AM and it didn't work? I'm asking because I'd like to buy the AM but it has to work on my Icemat as like the glide and I'm not willing to constantly spend money on new pads.

no I sent the icemat back before I got the AM, so I dont know if it works.

Try the Artisan Shiden or Shiden-Kai? Or even the Artisan Hayate?

May I ask how you like your Hien HARD? Is it so stiff that it feels like a hardpad?

Cheers!

Did you try the G-TF speed? I use it now with my AM. At first I thought "no that's no cloth pad, that's more like plastic!".
But in the end it combines some features of both worlds that just fit for my playing style.

It's quicker than normal cloth pads like a QCK. It's easier to start moving the mouse, the resistance isn't that high at movement beginnings, helps also when making small adjustements in aiming after doing fast swipes. Still it's nice and easy to accurately stop the mouse where you want it, so it's not too fast (like most hard pads are).

The only downside is that it's not as quiet as a cloth pad like a QCK, but still it isn't as loud as a hard plastic pad which kinda underlines my statement that it combines both worlds. thumb.gif
