What mouse pad are you currently using and why?

post #1 of 144

I figured why not have this thread for pads aswell.

For me it's QcK heavy for now, since it's the best one I could find so far and it's relatively cheap compared to Razer pads for example.

PureTrak Talent.

The only pad truly compatible with my 70cm/360, I don't go run out of room very often with this one. It's also smoother than the QcK surface, and I prefer a smoother pad.

If I had it my way, I would have a hard mat with the MM400 surface the size of the Talent and use a Sensei with a zero-acceleration variant of the 9500 but with the PCS of the new G502's sensor. lol

Artisan Hayate (Soft L)

Perfect balance of speed and control for my tastes. Sticks to my desk like magic when other pads wouldn't. Consistent, level foam padding without air pockets. Very pricy and picks up dust easily but definitely my favorite pad out of everything I've tried.

I used the Xtrac Ripper XL for about 8 years, recently I decided to try out the Steel Series Qck+. I like these types of pads because they are very smooth, large, track very well, and still provide some padding and resistance. I really like the Qck+, although it has slightly more resistance than the Ripper XL (which isn't really a bad thing).

No accel. Accel = evil in my opinion for any kind of competitive FPS gaming.

I wouldn't be surprised if the G502's sensor is better than the 9500 in every way.
On topic:
I'm currently using an Artisan hayate because my qck was badly worn out and too small. I decided to get something completely different for the upgrade and I loved the result. The artisan is precise, fast yet easily controllable and it completely suits my calm low sens playstyle and makes flick shots easy when those are needed. Definitely recommended for every low sensitivity player. The only minus is the sharp feeling of the edge when your hand touches it but so far I haven't noticed it at all during gaming.

Nah. Lots of top QL players use accel. Makes a lot of sense. You can use a much lower sensitivity while still beeing able to do fast 180 turn without beeing on the corner of the pad afterwards.
