Recommend me a mousepad, please

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a Razer Mamba 4g and I look for a pad that goes well with PTE. Right now I use goliathus speed and I'm really satisfied how it reacts with my abyssus and other mice but with PTE it is really horrible to my taste. And it gets dirty really quick.

I guess I need to go for hard pads and I'm really into Razer Scarab. But it is updated and I'm researching destructor 2, which seems to be the newer version.

The things i look at the mousepad are:
- Better not alum. because of the noise and problems they have
- Can be used for a long time without a problem
- Quick and accurate. But the main point is quick.
- Not an Artisan mousepad since I cannot buy them from where I live (Turkey)
- Has a good relationship with Philips Twin Eye sensor. I'm thinking of buying a DA 013 also. So, a good relationship with Mamba and DA013 would be good asset.

The mousepads I think on are:
- Zowie Swift
- Razer Scarab
- Razer Destructor 2
- (maybe) Invictus

Thanks for upcoming replies.

I currently use the cyborg glide 7. Goes perfect with my R.a.t 7, but i don't think they sell the mouse pad i have anymore.

I can only recommend that if you buy a mousepad, make sure that it's new. MAKE SURE OF IT. The seller said it was new, and it shows up dirty and with spots of damage on it. You don't want to go through the hassle of cleaning a pad, its a risky procedure. Even if you're careful, it ends up losing some of its slickness or maybe smoothness every time for some reason. Plus, who knows what the guy did to it, you know?blinksmiley.gif

I use the old Razer Mamba with the Razer Scarab, so the experience might be a bit different. But I'm incredibly happy with the mousepad, it has great glide and it seems to match quite nicely with the sensor. It also makes no noise and doesn't eat away at your mousefeet like aluminum pads do.

I am thinking of replacing it with the Destructor 2 (even though I think the Scarab and Destructor 2 will be nearly identical). Reason being that my desk is black, my case is black, and all my other peripherals and things are black. So the white scarab sticks out a lot and is a bit of an eye sore. But performance-wise, they are excellent, much better than everything I used with my mamba before.
