New Artisan Pad - Hayate Otsu - Page 9

post #81 of 451
After using the Artisan Zero Mid (L) for one month I can say for sure now that pad doesnt get dirty that much as ppl are saying. Minor white particles here and there could be noticed but can be easily swooped with hand swipes or cloth. The consinstency is great. I improved my aim. The pad itself is fast. I originally lowered all of my sens in every game since the pad is fast but after one month I gradually increased my sens cause my control over the mouse improved. So I'm close to what I was using before but still slower for a tiny portion yet i have tremendous flick shots (quakelive, cs:go) and general speed/control. I just love the pad. Still no sign of wearing out.
Another thing, I have textured table (oak). And its not like heavily textured but it seems that it doesnt STICK like glue to my table althou its not moving but i can easily move it but when i play it literally never moved. Unlike other pads that really stick to the table I can modify this with only pulling/pushing and not lifting the entire thing yet it sticks to the table and doesnt move when i play. I find that kinda strange but ok biggrin.gif
What else...
ye, the minor movements i can do with it is still what amazes me. minor flickshots...just the details.
i dont know its just good.

Thanks for the insight.
I couldn't resist and my Zero MID L arrived today. It's definitely faster than QCK Heavy but not much. I would guess same speed as Talent or Goliathus Speed IIRC.

Now I need some time to game on it and see how it holds up in performance and longevity. Only then I can see if it will replace my Raiden MID L.

My Zero xsoft survived daily abuse for over a year. It's still in very good condition, but now I use corepad 4XL because of bigger size.

I just unpacked mine. While using it, where the underside of my mouse arm hits the edge of the mouse pad closest to the edge of the table, I can notice the adhesive or whatever it is they use that's sticky. I hope this goes away.




how is the mouse pad ??? what's the initial movement/stopping power like ? and is it smooth ? how does it feel when trying to make micro movement or tiny movements do you overshoot is it harder to control ?

Sorry to bump such an old thread, it just seems to me that from what people are saying about the artisan zero xsoft it may well be just what I need in a mousepad, mostly from what people are saying about precision and landing well placed shots whilst being a bit faster than a qck. Ideally I would want a speed that is less than a hard pad, but quick for a cloth pad. Also with no dirt build up, or can be reasonably restored by washing it.

My question is about the consistency of these surfaces as I've seen it mentioned in this thread. Since they only do xsoft and mid in the zero so far, I'm wondering if a hayate otsu soft (not xsoft) version may be a better choice, if these pads are anything near the accuracy and control of the zero pads. I wouldn't mind getting a mid but if I can get extra stopping without hurting consistency then that'd be good as well, which is why I'm considering the hayate otsu. Are the hayate family of pads anything like what people are saying about the zero? I've yet to find enough reviews of these pads with different softness or versions to make an informed decision on which to buy.

just to inform you. i have used artisan zero mid for months and after some time i realized the surface doesnt fit my desk specifically. somehow it moved quite often while i was playing. i guess the table surface which is texture like oak, doesnt work well with that type of base.
another thing, the pads are small. i dont remember if they made bigger pads for hayate, i know they did something bigger for some pad but i forgot which one. anyway, large zero mid was small for me. i am low sens player.
later on i went and got XTRFY, i loved the pad so much but biggest problem i had with that pad it just suck moisture so damn hard. after 30 mins of gameplay if i get even 10% sweaty...not even sweaty, just "heaten" up and minimum amount of moisture, the pad loses its consistency.
i ended up with qck heavy in the end among all 3 of them. perfect base, huge, is consistent during longer periods of playing, even if i get sweaty a bit...
moisture isnt that much of a problem on heavy.

Size wise the large version looks alright to me, I find the qck+ is a just a touch too greedy on my desk space, it's nice but I want some space for my keybaord too. My desk is somewhat grainy so I don't know if that'll make a difference to these pads. Is it a height issue or a length issue with the zero?

The large pads of Artisan are just too small for many low sens gamers (so, most CS players).
50cm/360 is the lowest I can use with my Artisan pads because I have it laying vertically.
If I'd put it on my desk normally (horizontally, with a readable logo) then either my mouse would fly above the pad on the table or my forearm sticks on the table.

There were rumors that Artisan would make XL pads. Any news about it?
