Looks like I may go with the QcK Heavy. Honestly, I was more interested in the Artisans because they look like higher quality mousepads. There's even an Artisan that's advertised as similar to the QcK. Don't really know much about the company and products to make a decision.
I really loved my Hayate to start and thought it was the perfect mousepad. However, I have sweaty hands and wrists so my wrists tend to stick to the pad. I actually wear nike wristpads while gaming to stop the stickiness. It's kind of annoying. I wish these pads cleaned better. I feel for how long they last (a few months in like new and then they become kind of dustfilled and and operate at 80% or so of where they were), they should clean better.

Could you be more specific. I've done something very similar but the dust stays in and if you rub too hard, I think it makes the threads untangle.

I have used all of them. I don't like QCK and it was my main mousepad for a year. They are good to start but have no endurance and seem to have uneven consistency. They are ok not great. The Taito feels like simple microfiber to me. Razer cloth mousepads have QC issues in my experience. They were a bunch of loose threads on my Team Liquid Edition Razer mouse pad (I think it was speed, not control version).
From what I can tell the puretrak seems to be the king. I really want to try the CM Storm Power whatever-its-called but people say it doesn't work well with optical sensors. I really need a cloth mousepad that is resistant to water because of my sweaty hands.
