MM200 Extended. The MM400 is a hard mat.

Yeah, it's a pretty soft mat so it should be the MM200. Either way, it worked perfectly with the Avior 7000 and works perfectly with the FK1.

For general every day useage. There is no better pad than the QCK + or QCK Heavy. They are fantastic, controlled, readily available, durable, consistent, flat black color, and very comfortable.

If you want something a bit quicker, but still very comfortable, then the Talent is your pad. The Roccat Taito is a good middle ground between them. I've recently purchased the Corsair MM200 XL and it's also a fantastic pad if you're looking for something slower and more controlled.

From control to speed:

Corsair MM200 -> Steelseries QCK Heavy -> Steelseries QCK+ -> Roccat Taito -> Puretrak Talent.
I assume somewhere between QCK+ and Roccat Taito is the (old) Razer Goliathus Speed?

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.

Are you in a position to try the cm storm power-rx or the roccat hiro and return them for a refund if they cause tracking issues with your mouse? They seem like they would fit your needs well and it would be a shame to not at least try one.
