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.
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.
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.Edited by Skylit - 8/30/13 at 8:52am
