I can only really fathom such problem if you require a very large surface such as the Qpad heaton and travel the world as a professional gamer. But still, I see no reason why you couldn't fit that into carry on luggage.

Edit: Don't you use a Hien? Bending would literately ruin it. ;o

I used to use a plastic and an aluminum pad. The plastic pad was on the small side. That would be easy to take places, but these days I use large cloth pads. The aluminum pad was for home usage -- I like very smooth glide.

I don't travel around playing CS anymore. If I did, I might not use the Hien. I usually use cloth pads I don't care about.

I have lightly rolled the Hien with no noticeable issues... If I were to travel with it (if it's possible that is), I would use one of those poster tubes to store it in. I could probably fit 2 mice and some cables in there to.

It depends on how you are traveling, and what you are taking, whether you can easily take certain stuff.

Are you really that naive? In all of gaming history you don't think players would've made the switch to plastic if it was that special, there's a reason why most pros use cloth.

First of all most hard mouse pads are limited in size which is the primary issue

For example I use to use a SteelSeries 9hd on a sensitivity of 34 cm/360 and I could barely do 180 degree turn from 1 side of the mouse pad to the other, my sensitivity is on the higher end competitively for CS and this is where the 2nd issue arises, the glide.

It is alot harder to make precise accurate small movements with the overkill of glide harder pads give, when you take into consideration the limited size of these mousepads aswell and the fact that in order to make over a 180 degree turn from 1 side of your mousepad to the other, you would more than likely be using a higher sensitivity than I was which makes precise accurate small movements even harder even more so again.

I've used both in the past, this is all coming from a player that has played at a high level competitively across numerous fps games, it has absolutely 0 to do with being a "sheep" and more so to do with previous experience, which I've had alot of. I'm not the only one that feels this way clearly or else you would be seeing more professional players using these materials.

I hate to say this, but me being "naive" does not correlate with highly subjective ideology. If your only defense is "must be better because pros use it", don't even bother trying to argue with me. I already understand your outlook and bias on the subject. I've been there myself at a younger age.

The size limitation is a legitimate point, though that really shouldn't be that big of an issue for a high skilled player. Otherwise choice of material is merely preference; Should be understandable that the entire following of large cloth surfacing is based on multiple factors including previous technology, comfort, or even gaming crowds themselves.

There are actually many high CM distance low sens users that are capable of managing with some what limited space. I know I could when I played very low, but that's bringing in view point which may only be limited to me or a select few. Your main argument is against plastic in general, size being a sub point.

In terms of being too fast, uncontrolled.... If thats how you feel about it, sure, I'm not trying to change your mind. On the other hand, it does make you sound rather silly to refute other opinions based on what a collective group does. I'm not a saint, but I've become more open to ideas overtime.

Sorry, but I never heard of you, granted I'm not claiming to be high level. I'm just a nerd who has used many cloth pads and has witnessed trends since the inception of esports or competition.

I'm simply expanding into alternative options and I don't really need to rely on what other gamers do (pro or not) for reassurance. Anyway this is really off topic. The original poster is looking for a cloth pad.

Well...I bought a goliathus control alpha...and switched back to the qck instantly. It does not have the precision and control...no stopping power.
