Cloth mousepad that doesn't wear out too much?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
As the title says, I am trying to find a cloth mousepad that doesn't wear out too much after use. I've been using a QCK+ for a couple months and the middle is noticeably more friction-y than the outsides. I'd like to get a mousepad that has around the same feeling as the QCK, although I don't think I'll mind if it's a pretty drastic difference.

I've had my QcK+ for nearly 2 years and I am on it for at least 4 hours a day. Other than a little spot near the edge where my wrist and bottom of my palm rubs, it is as good as new. I have no idea what you could be doing to your mousepad to wear it out so quickly. I have two recommendations for you. Try a more durable plastic mouse pad, or see if you can find a Func 1030 somewhere. Apparently the Func 1030 was so durable they went out of business because no one bought more than one, haha. Good luck!

I'm actually looking at this.. How slippery is it?

Make sure only the mouse feet are touching the mouse pad. They might be worn out if you used the mouse on a hard pad or on a table a lot. The hard plastic shell of the mouse might be scratching up the mouse pad.

It´s pretty thin and fast. More like a hard mat but the mouse feet doesn´t worn out more than standard cloth.

I'm using the stock Deathadder feet right now. They're pretty thin, which could cause some scratching. However, I noticed the friction in the center right after I got my new Deathadder. Before the Deathadder, I was using a WMO with stock UPE feet, which may have worn out the mousepad faster than teflon feet. I think I'll get some new mousefeet and a new QCK+. Thanks!
