Looking for a specific mouse pad

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've been using some generic walmart mousepad for quite some time now, and I think it's time to get a new one. I have a few specifications, though.

- Must be cloth.
- Must be thick.
- Must have low friction.
- And I would prefer if it were just a normal size. Nothing too large.

I know I'm asking for a lot, but hopefully one exist that satisfy all of my needs. Thanks!

Looks like a classic SteelSeries QCK.
Spongy, cloth, low friction (for a cloth pad), normal size.

I thought the qck is suppose to be medium to high friction? Or am I mistaken?
post #5 of 11
The Qck is a high friction pad. Something more like the artisan hayate would be considered a low friction cloth pad.
post #6 of 11
It's not too bad. If you're into the QcK, and 2mm is not thick enough for you, the QcK "Heavy" model is a whooping 6mm thick smile.gif

Zowie G-TF Speed
Razer Goliathus Control L

Many people say that the Control edition has less friction, and not the Speed (The Goliathus).

I haven't tried these mousepads, but they seem to be quite nice mousepads too.

Hmmmm is the razer goliathus thick and cushiony?
post #10 of 11
Not really, they have a 4mm thickness but the rubber is quite rigid.
