You're probably better off with a hard mouse pad, since you're using a laser mouse.

If I like a faster sens and smoother movement, would I like the Shiden-Kai? How is the speed of the Raiden? Should I get XSOFT over mid for a better feel?

If you care for the movement feedback from the mousepad, you could try Raiden Mid, among other Artisan pads. Raiden's surface is smooth and fast, and since G9x is quite a heavy mouse, I suggest to get the Mid instead of XSoft for better surface rigidity.

The reason why I suggest Raiden over Shiden-kai is that from my experience, G500 is not especially smooth on Shiden-kai, so I am wary of G9x's performance on it too. G500 is, however, smooth on Raiden and that's why I suggest it for G9x as well. Though I am not sure how similar/different their mouse feet are.

its a shame raiden doesnt work on a popular mouse such as deathadder. i own hayate now and 4 days i can already see visible dust which i cant remove, gonna try to brush the mousepad maybe in 1-2 months

i think it is lint, but the best way to clean it is
buy a toothbrush soft
detergent
cold water--- clean it up nicely --- if you have a fan would be good to put it next to a fan to let it dry faster, then u would need a lint roll remover , pass it a few times after the mouse pad is dry and your mouse pad should be clean of dust

I got the xsoft version and it is much faster and smoother than Hayate and Hayabusa. The speed is the same for both vertical and horizontal movements.
Out of the box right now it feels as fast as a shiden but not as slippery, so the control is way better than shiden.
I have every single artisan pad and this is the best one so far, they need to make a Large version so all of my friends can buy it.
Hope it doesn't stop working after 3 months like the garbage Shiden does, but i doubt that considering Raiden is cloth top, but we'll see.
EDIT: Pics with horrendous quality







there is one large raiden on amazon

Doubly curious. Anyone have a 2013 and Raiden? I'm not sure I wanna risk buying a Raiden with the potential it won't work with any of my mice frown.gif

I bought a Raiden (mid softness, large) earlier this week. My brother's DA 2013 seems to track fine on it at 450 DPI, though the description says they might have problems at low sens. The lift off distance needed adjusted. It tracks at minimum on a Hayate, but on the Raiden it needed turned up. It's set at 10 now and the lift off is still extremely low.

Is there a simple objective test that can verify that the mouse is not having tracking problems? Drawing lines in paint didn't show any.

Nagu...... Holding my breath man let me know does it have jitter and skipping when drawing a diagonal line in paint? I just received my Raiden and my DA 3.5g doesnt work well at all. But i love the shape so im considering the 2013 edition
