I suppose it makes me feel like when I use my Raiden Mid (the best cloth pad in my opinion if it was no compatibility issues) rather than Hayate Soft.(To be exact, slightly slower and easier to stop than Raiden and texture pattern is obviously different.)
These two are the fastest cloth pad except their glass-coated Shiden and Shiden-Kai.
Control is much easier than my Shiden VE, and harder than Hayate Soft a bit.
Horizontal movement is faster than vertical one, but it's just a little bit, so hardly noticeable when using.
I like it very much, especially very fast initial motion is awesome.
And I recommend this to those who have interest in Raiden but not sure if it works with your mouse too.
I guess they are going to sell this for overseas in the near future.
Excuse me for my poor English, I can't write detail review like other guys. Thanks.

I have used the zero for sometime, but leisurely more so than with games and such. I have been just too busy these past weeks.

What i can say is what others have said and that is this thing sticks to a desk like a brick. But i have ran into some negatives as well. First off its a dust magnet as stated before. It is not friendly for those who have cats (me). If you do do not let them on your desk (like me) because if they are not de-clawed then you run the risk of them puncturing the pad. I have two marks one of which is punctured to the middle of the pad from my cats nails. I did not think about this until i was using it this morning and seen a piece of string like fabric sticking up. I will just rotate it and it will be fine for now.

The glide: Well i do compare it to a steelseries qck as that is the closest feeling i can relate it to. However, its x10 the quality as a qck i feel. The glide is much improved; faster than the qck with little resistance, yet excellent stopping power. The nice thing to is the glide feels even despite being an xsoft pad.I notice that it doesn't take much to start or stop the mouse from moving. I was quite surprised because this is suppose to be like one of the slowest mats from Artisan yet it feels much faster than the videos i watched. I like it and im not disappointed.

Although, I will say im not sure its worth the price. I payed $50 on amazon plus 20 in shipping. This is the most expensive mouse pad purchase I have made. I would only buy another one if 1) i really love it when i start to play games again whenever that is 2) if i get the unsettling urge to try a different one like the hien mid.

On a side note i have NOT noticed tracking issues with my sensei which was my ultimate concern. I am not sure about lift off distance though, i may just have to increase the settings of that under the ss program. I did noticed that seemed to be reduced (worse), but again could be my settings.

i agree with everything you said. when i got mine i purchased it off of their official website and i paid around 38 dollars including shipping. now that theyre hard to find prices are going up and shipping prices will be high since theyre most likely from overseas.

I got my Hayate (Soft L) today and just got done playing a couple hours of CSGO with it. I have to say overall I am extremely impressed and the Artisan brand name lives up to its high reputation. These pads are expensive but you are paying for quality. If I knew anything about cars I would make a luxury car analogy right about now.

The Hayate surface is unlike anything I've used before. There is minimal friction but I can still reliably stop my cursor where I want on flick shots. I've gone through a lot of other fast pads and there was always a trade off between speed and control that sometimes led to overshooting. With this pad I feel like I get good amounts of both speed and control. I love it but YMMV here.

The rubber backing of the pad is equally awesome. A lot of pads have had trouble sticking to my polished wooden desk, but the Hayate won't budge and actually needs to be peeled off even though there's no adhesive or anything. It's honestly genius.

As far as aesthetics go, I really appreciate the simple design Artisan uses for their pads. One solid color and a small logo in a corner out of reach. I'm not a fan of companies that plaster giant logos and designs all over the pad that either look ugly or cause some minor tracking issues, or both. Artisan adopts a "less is more" approach which I much prefer.

Other than that, just a couple minor negative things to note. The edges of the pad are slightly sticky from where the layers have been glued together. I don't find it to be a big deal but thought I would mention it. The Hayate also greatly raised my LOD but I was able to get it to my liking by dropping my LOD setting to the minimum in the Mionix drivers. I would recommend that you have a very low LOD mouse if you were going to be buying this particular pad.

And lastly, this is for anyone curious about the shipping process. I ordered my pad March 3rd in the afternoon from USER SIDE on Amazon. It shipped from Japan the next day and arrived at my door on the east coast of USA on March 6th. Obviously I can't guarantee anyone else will have the same result, but I was very surprised how fast it came from that far away. My USPS driver wanted a signature but I'm not sure if that is standard or not for their shipping.
