Mousepad for zowie AM?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So I'd like to know which mouse pad performs good with zowie AM and which doesn't. I think I'm going to buy ss qck+ or heavy, since I've been using normal qck and I kinda like it. Please tell me if some pad is better with zowie AM (if any) and how would you compare its friction to qck? I've been considering puretrak talent aswell. I'd like to hear people opinion.

So would you recommend qck with AM or does it have some problems or just doesn't perform as good as some other pads?

Thanks for the answers!

Zowie GT-F speed would be an option.

You can't really go wrong with the QCK or the Talent. They both perform great with the AM. smile.gif
I've also read good things about the GT-F. Stay away from white mousepads though, AM doesn't seem to like them.

Umm I think I'm going to stick with qck+ or heavy. What's the friction order for those 3. From most friction to least friction it's qck/talent/gt-f? Correct if I'm wrong. I think I could try the one with less friction than qck, but tbh not the least one. So talent might be my choose, only heard good about it. Just want to make sure that the white hexagons in it don't affect in AM's tracking or so. So they don't cause any problems right?

Thanks. It's a really hard decision but I guess I really can't go wrong on this one. smile.gif

Ι own hien hard - hien VE - g-tf speed - g-tf regular - puretrak talent

I prefer g-tf speed, AM's feet have a large contact area so you'll need the slickest hardpad you can get, slow softpads won't blend well smile.gif

I found the same but just used 1.1/3.0 hyperglide to give it the level of friction I needed.

Well I use G-TF speed for my AM aswell, but I'm not that happy with it, mainly coz it's just to fast for me.
Unfortunately I can't use my favourite mousepad which is Razer Goliathus coz of the splashy green graphic, which cause some trackin issues.
Thinkin about buying Hayate, but paying so much money for a mousepad which doesn't even has stiched edges is madness :| I'm gonna wait a while, maybe Razer will make some kind of re-edition of Goliathus without any gfx.
