Mouse mat - Speed vs Control - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I find that slower, "control" pads are generally worse than faster pads. They say control pads help you control the mouse better, but I find that it actually hinders your control. For example, I play cod 4 promod and when I'm pressing down on button 2 to aim, the control pads have so much friction that I can't aim properly.

It's better to find a pad that is slick, but isn't "slippery". The artisan hayate is a prime example of a pad that's slick, but not overly so.

I used to play on faster pads like the Puretrak Talent, but after testing different sensors on different pads for jitter and sensor performance I found the Steelseries NP+ to offer the best results. I think the NP+ would be considered a control pad, but I don't think it is slower for the mouse movement, not at all. It's just not as comfy for the wrists wink.gif

And aiming works flawlessly for me.

Another good black cloth pad to consider is Corsair MM200 XL. Its 4mm thick and only slightly smaller than QcK Heavy. Its a bit faster than QcK and feels kinda like Roccat Taito.

Damn... and I was hoping to buy the MM200 to replace my Goliathus Control. headscratch.gif

Maybe in general, but the Razer Control doesn't exactly have more friction, it might be slightly slower than the Speed edition but if it is it's not by much. It's definitely not a slow/rough or high friction mouse pad, just textured weave.

I have tried several different combinations of mice and surfaces. My personal preference is a cloth pad with good glide, paired with a light mouse. This gives me the optimal degree of control and speed for my low sensitivity playing style.

The Puretrack Talent Stealth is like the smoothest pad I've tried, plus very thick IMO so it's very comfy on my wrists.
The TTesports White Ra pad is a very similar texture but weaved (so it would be more like a control one I guess), still much smoother than the QCK or the Goliathus.

The Zowie G-TF is completely diferent, is not cushioned and it's clearly less sticky due to a weird base concept and it's somewhat rigid structure. The texture is not quite cloth, is more like a denim texture... almost like a cloth/hard hybrid.

FPS players prefer gentle cloth, due to low cpi usage hard pads would eat their skates in no time with that huge cm/360... Plus a cushioned cloth pad can help a lot with wrist pain after long usage.
