Zowie G-CM vs G-TF vs QCK+

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. Right now i have QCK+ grate mouse pad love it, but some times i just not geting that much glide so i also have Razer Scarab B3 edition also superb mouse pad but just not that big as QCK+ and when my hands get a bit more sweaty they really stick to Scarab smile.gif so that also not comfortable as QCK but on QCK not getting that glide like from Scarab, so i was looking at Zowie, i've read that Zowie G-TF is best from both world QCK smothnes and speed like Razer Scarab, thats superb but i also have read that it eats mouse pads fast. So other option was Zowie G-CM. What about it? what the pad feels compared to QCK?

Mouse: Zowie EC1 eVo
Previews mouses: Razer DA, Logitech G400, Steelseries Xai, Razer Imperator. and more smile.gif

I haven't got my hands on a Zowie pad..and I don't like to give advice unless I have had personal experience with it, so I'll leave that for another member.

However, an alternative is the Artisan mousepads sold on Amazon. I got a medium glass coated, and it is exceptional. They have a wide array of coatings, colors, and finishes to pretty much suit any gaming style.

I tend to like hard mouse mats, and went through an Ironclad, scarab, sphex, and a few others; they all had their quirks. There aren't many hard mats available and I had a lot of trouble finding one I liked. But from my experience so far with the artisan mousepad, it is by far the best I have used.

Essentially if you know what kind of mousepad you like, you can find it available from them:
They offer varying degrees of firmness (xsoft, soft, mid, hard) sizes (small, medium , large, xlarge ) surfaces (glass coated, cloth etc) and colors.

I feel like after choosing your size, color, firmness, coating, it is difficult to be dissatisfied. If you like the QCK, my recommendation is to choose a soft pad. Here is a link to the products.

PS: I have also got an EC2 evo, so just saying...rolleyes.gif

Thats unfortunate...sorry about that. Guess you will have to wait for a member with experience with those Zowie pads.

Yeah those artisan pads are where it's at, I'm ordering a hayate here pretty soon, hopefully in the next couple of days. Hopefully it will team up with either the DA or Ikari laser.

yeah 60€ incl. shipping to Germany for the Hayate mid size.

Not bad, or better than buying it from Japan. But still... 60€
