What mousepad do you like for gaming? - Page 8

post #71 of 79
To start off my reply, I like light mice under 100 G if possible and very slick surfaces. I also play with around 50cm/360 on cod4 and BF3/4.

Right now I have a Goliathus Control Alpha but I'm really looking for a hard pad since I tried a 9HD a while back and it was amazing, but not large enough.

An MM400 is on the way with a Sensei, I'm hoping that sensor is happy with the surface but I would assume so.

If not, I might grab a Propus 380 and give the MM400 to my gf who also has a Sensei.

Any thoughts on the Propus and MM? Just curious if any of you own one or both of these mats and have tried them with ADNS-9500 and/or ADNS-9800 mice.

I think the Propus is pretty great. Pretty smooth overall, and the size is pretty good if you're looking for a bigger pad. I bought it to go with the G9X, which has a S9500 sensor. It works great with it, though I've changed mice since then. I'm now using a DA 2013, which also works fantastically with it.

On the personal front, I've been looking for a smaller pad. I kind of need more room on my desk, and the pad's getting a bit worn out. Would anyone know how the 4HD compares to the Propus? I'm especially interested in knowing how the initial friction compares.

I'm using a Red Artisan Hien (mid) atm with my SteelSeries Rival and it works great, best mousepad I've ever used, I'm getting lower malfunction speed compared to other peoples reports though...

I like my cloth, after Qcks I went to Qpad UC due to space requirements on my desk.
I keep it on a hard plastic rectangular surface because my desk has a certain finish and a certain thick cover over it -inefficient as a base for a pad.
Understandable, I've never had any tracking issues with any of my preferred mice (ime3.0 DA1800 g400).

Wow same games and same sens........are you me? tongue.gif

Anyway I'm a man of the cloth. I like the qck team editions as the glide is spot on for me. Not a fan of the standard QCK's glide but I may give the heavy another shot soon to see if more friction feels good.

Just got my MM400 and it's really great. Much more glide than cloth though but I prefer it. I had no idea the team Qcks had a different glide than the standard. QcK is too rough for me to actually game with but I use a Mini as my general use mousepad. We should play sometime, haha so much like minded.

Just wanted to ask a couple of questions because I plan on getting a new mouse pad in the next week or so. Right now I'm using Tt esports Ladon and Deathadder BE. Since I don't prefer the palm grip anymore even though my hands are on the larger side, I was looking to pick up Kana v2 because it seems like a great all-rounder for claw grip. The Ladon itself is a pretty great pad, it's kinda unique. It's a hybrid pad but the surface is really nice, there's basically almost no friction and the gliding is superb even with the small ****ty teflon pads that come with the DA. However it does have it's downside and that is that bubbling effect that tends to happen on some pads. The thing is that this pad is perfectly flat when laid down, but after a bit of usage (doesn't matter if it's warm or cold (no sweat involved for the most part) it has these bubbles popping out in the middle of the pad. It also has some skipping issues with DA unless I rotate it.

Basically I'm looking for mostly a hybrid mat, preferably a mid-large sized one (not super large) that's easy to clean and that the edges don't fray as easily. I've narrowed it down to a couple of pads, but since I can't really make a comparison because I live in a ****ty country I was hoping some of you guys could help me. My favorites so far are Qpad CT, Zowie G-TF Speed, Artisan Hien and Corepad Cerro. Cerro isn't really known that much but the surface is much like the G-TF, it's some kind of a smooth hybrid cloth and has stiched edges but with better grip on the desk and for me personally it has a better shape. I was mostly leaning towards the Qpad CT white version (hopefully there's no tracking issues with the avago 3090 sensor) because it seems to hit the sweet spot in every one of my needs, but I'm not sure if the edges fray or if it's durable enough. I would get an artisan pad but have no idea which one has that smooth glide with minimum friction, but still having some control. I won't be considering hard pads like 9hd because that sucker ate the ptfe feet in like a couple of days with average usage, and it's too smooth for me because I prefer something with a bit more control.

Anyways, sorry for the long post, basically should I go for CT, G-TF Speed, Hien or Cerro for a good hybrid all-rounder that's durable and easy to clean.

Artisan Hayate. Cost 50 bucks but well worth it. A perfect balance of glide and control for me.
