Best pad for steelseries sensei.

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Can any of you tell me what pad would be the best for my Steelseries Sensei? I know for a fact other mice are a slight bit better. Specifically the G9x is the closest to perfect I've ever held in my hand. The Sensei is slightly worse, but the closest I can get for me, due to my sinister nature. (I'm left handed)

What would you guys suggest? Presently I use a razer goliathus speed, and it's the closest any soft pad has ever gotten to a hard pad. I'm typically quite capable of selecting a pad and mouse for myself, though not really able to say why it's a good pad for me.

I'm wanting a hard pad that lasts more than 6 months. I've used the following:

Razer Scarab
Func f30r
Razer eXactmat
Qpad Heaton (not extensively, but my roomie owns one)

Of these, the scarab gave me the best experience, while the eXactmat had the longest lifetime. This leads me to either buying a scarab or a vespula. Any other suggestions y'all'd give? Most hard pads last me 4-6 months. Any you'd suggest that have a really long lifetime and great tracking accuracy for a steelseries sensei?
I prefer a pad with a lower static friction. The scarab is the pad I've used with the least.
If I get multiple but very heated suggestions I'll buy more the ones y'all clamor for the most and offer my opinion of them upon delivery.

Hi!First of all,I would say not to buy the Sensei.I own it and it's not that good.Don't trust the "professional gamers" that are recommending this because they are paid to game with those products.The sensor acceleration became a pain in the a** even on a hard pad (Razer Destructor).Not only in games but even in web browsing and others.I tried every "mouse fix" out there but those only fix Windows acceleration.If you ask me i would say you go and get the Razer Deathadder (Left Hand Edition).Especially if you are a FPS gamer.As for the mouse pad,I would say Razer Scarab or Steelseries 4HD.

Good Luck!smile.gif

I have it already, and have had it quite some time. Right now, the mouse is fairly close to satisfactory to me. I had a Razer Deathadder already, and the back part of the mouse is shaped oddly to me, and the loose skin on my palm kept sliding under the ledge on the back. The Deathadder was biting me. (And btw, this hurt so bad that no amount of zero acceleration would make up for it)

I play starcraft 2 the vast majority of the time, and any excursion into any other game is casual at best and as such not as demanding for me. I can add a deathadder LH to my order if it's strongly reccomended to give it another try, but more importantly, I'm looking for pads that will help me use a Sensei to it's full potential.

I'm really curious if there are any hard pads that approach scarab quality but last longer.

Check SteelSeries mouse pads.

The scarab is the upgraded version of the destructor. You think it lasted longer? Razer quality is generally bad across the board aside from their pads in my experience.

I had a lachesis and it was the least stable mouse I've ever used.

BTW I'm wanting to order before the end of the weekend so I need a LOT of feedback as I intend to order several pads and use the one I like most.

Well,for the Sensei is indicated that you use a hard pad.So now you are down to 4 choices:

Razer Scarab\Vespula,Steelseries HD (4\9) or S&S

Also,you might want to consider getting some new glides if it is possible for you.

The feet won't be that bad by now. The mouse wasn't released until quite recently, and I've had it since about a month after release. Ah, got it 10/24/2011. biggrin.gif

Thanks for linking me to some feet for my mouse though. REP FOR YOU!
