I decided to get this one because I really wanted to go back to a hybrid, and I figured the size is more than enough for me since I prefer not to move my arm for aiming. I know this is not the popular method, but I've tried changing this many times over the decades and in the end I always come back to wrist and finger movements only. I'm just more consistent this way, especially in games that require a lot of fast turning. You probably already know whether you are that kind of player and whether the size is perfectly okay or a deal-breaker.
Quality-wise it really is excellent, people who got it for a long time seem to be saying that it lasts well, and there is no reason not to believe this from how this is put together.
When I was looking for information about this pad I mostly wanted to hear about the surface, but didn't find all that much about it. So I'll try to describe it as best as I can:
Obviously it's not quite as fast as hard pads can be, I'm sure nobody looking for hybrid pads expects this. Hybrids are a compromise to get fast speed and consistently low resistance while still being relatively soft and quiet. It is still quite fast, actually much faster than the wooden desk that I've placed it on. I don't sense any annoying static friction, it just feels all around good to me. At first I found it a little hard to control and reduced my sensitivity, but after about a day of getting used to it I've gone back to normal and control feels very good.
With cloth pads, the mouse would often feel "heavy" when I wasn't warmed up, which is when the resistance bothered me the most. Or when a pad felt worn down, also humidity could affect it. None of this is an issue with the Dex, and that was the main reason why I wanted to get back to a hybrid (I did use a QPad CT for some time). Of course now there is the opposite issue that my aim becomes more shakey when I'm not warmed up yet (or nervous), but this still feels better to me and in the end there is just no way around having to warm up before performing well.
The feel of the surface does reminds me of something in-between plastic and soft wood, while not being as noisy as either. It also doesn't feel scrapy but you can feel the bumps, which is something I don't usually like. The bumps are small enough though that I can easily live with that. It definitely doesn't feel as silky smooth as a cloth pad, but smooth enough to not distract me while playing or to make me feel conscious about the noise (which is the main reason I just can't use hard pads).
A lot of people have complained about the rubber base in reviews, but for me it's working just fine. This is probably related to surface type and/or humidity, but for me the pad does not move unless I want it to (on the aforementioned wooden desk). Due to its size I do find I reposition it every once in a while based on what I am doing, so not having it be super sticky is more of a good thing for me.
I would definitely recommend this pad to any wrist aimers looking for a fast but silent pad. It just doesn't do anything wrong, and those who don't mind the size generally seem to be quite happy with it. The durability also justifies the price in my opinion.
