Urgently need a new mouse mat!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So my roccat sota has a bulge after a months use and it has REALLY started to effect my gameplay recently, Even in diablo 3 :/

At this point i dont care what surface it is, I think i would prefer plastic top or foil mats or something, As long as the surface is fast i dont mind
I had a cloth mat before and it was just too slow and it would grip the mouse too much.

I would get a puretrak talent but its well too large D: even the stealth is too large.

Im looking for 400mm width maximum, Thats plenty bigger than i would need and with a length of 270mm and NO SHORTER

After using a 260mm length pad and going to a 270, That was quite a difference.

Perfect size would prolly be 350x300mm or 320mm length wise

I would try the Steelseries 5L But its not sold anywhere in the UK at all

I can vouch for Razer Goliathus mouse mats.

Razer mega some is a great rubberized pad IMO. The original had glow in the dark stuff that caused tracking issues resulting in terrible reviews. Mine is minus the glow in the dark and I cannot imagine using anything else.

The razer goliathus is too big, and the smaller version is too small

And the megasoma is only 230mm in length D:

Im looking for a mat that has a more square / even shape to it.

I have the roccat taito 3mm mid size 320x400 its great I like it more than my old steelseries qck. The steelseries qck is rolled so tight when you get it that it takes years to flatten out, but the roccat was perfectly flat and crease free right out of the box.

Thing i had about the taito mid size is that im unsure if its a nice surface, I would get one if i know how smooth / fast enough the surface is

It hits my maximum width of 400mm and thats a bit on the large side but the 320mm length is great
