Buying an Artisan Hien Soft -- What color tracks better, Blue or Red?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I see a lot of people specifically recommending red for the Artisan pads. I can see why red is better than black for tracking, but is it also better than blue?

From what I understand the sensor responds better to that wavelength. The Artisan blue is rather dark, maybe if it was lighter it would be the same as the red.

For me, I felt that the blue was smoother than black, the red was smoother than the blue, so compared to black red is much better.

Keep in mind that most people are unlikely to notice the difference between the colors.

I did notice that it was a bit dark. I think I am going to bite the bullet anyways and go for it.

I would definitely do the red, but I use a Zowie FK and have a yellow keyboard. It would be way too McDonald's all the time for me it that were to happen.
