I really like the Glorious XL - I love the combo of thickness, glide, and that it doesn't scratch the hell out of my palms. However, the shipping to outside the US through Glorious themselves is AWFUL, at least in North America.
i can recommend this pad. it's cheap, stays flat out of the box (at least the xl heavy), doesn't smell. consistent glide, it's between my puretrak talent (slower) and zowie g-tfx (faster), which i find a good mix between control and speed.
Can anyone give some insight what kind of base they use for glorious mousepads? I'm using a G-SR that has pretty awesome base when used on my glass desk but I need more space (due to low sensitivity). Even better if someone is able to compare the feeling overall to an zowie benq G-SR (the black, tag logoed one).
The base is super nice. Slightly more grippy then qck but very much like that traditional sort of rubber sponge base. The pad is excellent. My fav pads are the QCK and UC50 as I like non satin cloth. This is a slightly tighter weave then the qck and feels great on the arm. Highly recommended. I got the 90cm x 45cm. The only thing I'd change is more thickness. But once this wears I'll be getting another for sure.
