I don't note visible wear on my Savu's feet after prolonged use on Hien, but that may be because I don't rest a lot of weight on the mouse. The surface of Hien is rough, but it is still made of material that is supposedly softer than the average mouse feet, so there shouldn't be much wear save some polishing effect.

The rounded/stitched corners look comfy, I have to get it some day for comparison

Personally I like a faster pad and do prefer the Zero. However this is simply my preference and the Zero happens to suit my needs. Raisinbun, as outlined by the Artisan email you should strive to make this review as neutral as possible and should outline the pros and cons of each pad. You should allow the reader to make their choice based upon their individual needs. I advise you remove your subjective wording and you should not state that one pad is better than the other.
There is no requirement of a "neutral" review free of "subjective" element (or I could have missed it). Thank you for your advice though, I will review my review once again to get rid of descriptions that are too biased or non-factual.
