Ideally I am looking for is suggestions of good pairings of a mouse and pad, i.e a mouse/pad combo that is know to work well and fit in with what I have mentioned I am looking for below -

I play mostly FPS and MMORPGS

Mouse -
Fingertip/claw grip.
Small hands.
Mouse feet that will not wear out fast.

Pad-
Small/Medium size pad with a very smooth/consistent glide and low/moderate friction.

For cloth pads,shipping flat(not in a roll) or no need to flatten out before use due to material used is a must.
For hard pads, surface must be not one that is known to wear mouse feet fast.

 

 

 

For the mouse I suggest the roccat savu, it's a high quality mice with very good tracking and build quality. It also weight only 90g. It ship with PTFE skates out of the box (Logitech and Razer use crappy mouse feet,  once you go PTFE you dont look back).

For the mouse pad, the Mionix Propus 380 seems to fit your description. The surface is fast yet very, very smooth.

I had enough pads and I dont judge them based on how long they last because it stupid. I would buy the same pad every year over and over again for 20€ if it was that good.

but right now Im sitting comfortably on my puretrak complexity can can say that this will likely last me for years to come.

I mean something that in the case of a cloth pad is not going to start having frayed edges or bald spots in 6 months, or in the case of hard pad have worn spots or make worn spots on mouse feet after a couple of months like the Xai/HD combo I have did.

Conditions I have used to say that in my opinion the WoW!Pad is the best...

1) Mouse precision of movement, every movement is precise and the surface provides a near perfect balance of slick and resistence.

2) Ultra Thin, means I can put it anywhere on my desk and if stuff sits on it, it does not get in the way.

3) Durable, the pad just seesm to keep going as it is a plastic rather than a cloth, meaning it does not fray or look dingy. Also cleaning is super easy because it is a plastic.

4) Reasonable price... Around $10 for a single mouse pad that is 6 years in use and still works great is an amazing value.

5) Anti-Bacterial design. Might sound silly but to many mice pads hold colds and flus whne we use them while sick. The material on the WoWPad is the same kind of material used on thin cutting boards which means it is resistant to bacteria and virus growing on it, thus cutting out one place the illness can catch a hold.

Are those enough reasons other than durability? I suggest buying one and trying for yourself.

Question would be, where would I buy one in the UK ? the only hits I find via google are on Amazon US.

I do have experience of the QCK "light" i guess, the thin one that is frequently sold branded(Star Craft,Guild Wars 2 etc) and comes flat in a blister pack thing, I liked the feel of it but the Xai hated it. Would zowie ec2 evo work fine on this QCK type in particular ? also I wonder unlike with the Xai and QCK I had even though they are from the same company they didnt work well at all id not have such an issue with Zowie pads and mice ?

I also had a QCK heavy and really didn't like it at all, spent over a week trying to get it to flatten out but it would not so gave up.

I'm a fan of the I.M.E. + Puretrak Talent combo I have now. Better than the mx518/DA/Steelseries QCK setups of the past.

If you're claw I'd say something like the abyssus, Zowie AM, Xai, lachesis, orochi or RAT series perhaps? I definitely like my Puretrak Talent enough to buy another one/recommend it.

I have tested my ec2 and ec1 evo (bought the ec2 first and then decided I need the bigger ec1, still looking to sell the ec2 but dont ask me I live in germany wink.gif) on various black or colorful cloth pads and there were no problems whatsoever, so I think its safe to say that one of the QCK variations you like best will work well with it.
here is an interesting chart for you, the ec2 evo is in the second line, 3rd one counting from the right side. http://i.imgur.com/zonlJa5.jpg

Is the complexity any different than the Talent? And if so, how?
