New Artisan Pad - Hayate Otsu - Page 10

post #91 of 448
as detto said...forearm sticks on the table. i had to play with long sleeves just to get that thing of my mind.
the glide is great on artisan. its not comfortable at first, but u get used to it. thats the least of their problems.
if they made XL version of the pad with better rubber base i'd go for it all over again.

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.

I use low sense but I find the qck+ to be good enough, from the looks of it the artisans may be only a few mm less in length, so I feel they might be alright especially with more glide. I play low sens, usually below 2.0, and more normal for me lower than 1.5 depending on the game but I guess I must use a lot more big mouse movements than I think.

This may be an issue then, because it would be a slight gamble to find out if I experience the same or if this bothers me. They look to be on the right track with glide and control properties though, so that's something. But barring the rubber base a hayate otsu soft would be okay in terms of consistency and being similar to described performance here? Or would a mid still be more suitable? If so I may just keep my eye on artisan to see if they update their lines.

Better rubber base? It's already pretty damn good. This thing sticks to everything.

They said something about XL pads to be released in september, but so far nothing. Hope they hurry up, I'm getting tired of this corepad 4xl. It's just awful compared to my zero.

Artisan 42 x 33 x 4 mm
Qck+ 45 x 40 x 2
and qpad XXXXL.. just looks like an unholy monster.

So I guess people are more concerned about the overall area than the amount of left-right space there is? If these pads are as good as people say, I would be interested in an 'under keyboard' version too, so I can stop hitting the damn thing with my mouse. The artisan L size looks good to me, with the exception that the ergonomics of 'under keyboard' versions would be great.

With my 65cm sensitivity I don't have much "out of space" issues on zero. Of course after abusing that generous size of corepad 4XL I'll have to restrict myself but hey, It's better than washing mousing area with alcohol every 3 days just to get that glide back. Tbh wasted 30 euros on this thing, that's a price of one L sized artisan.

Yeah the shipping cost is 50% of the pad cost, yet it works out cheaper to order from artisan than getting it on amazon where I am. It's that bad in terms of maintenence eh? I was wondering if the otsu may have improved that as well, they said they'd enhanced the durability.

Maintenance of what? Artisan Zero or Corepad 4XL?

Zero is very easy to maintain. Occasionally remove dust with brush. I also wash it every month with warm water, soap and brush. Lasted over 1 year with no loss of glide and still good to go. Rest of the pads from artisan are maintained the same way.

Corepad due to it's size is total pain in the ass to wash. After 3 days, mousing area gets sticky and glide is pretty much done for. I have to rub it with cloth and alcohol to make it good again. Rubber base is rather "meh", mouse vibrates when moving around but that's just me being spoiled. Their "non-slip rubber base" is pure BS too. It's non-slip only because I have 2 monitors on top.

Ah so milage seems to vary for people with the artisans grip and maintenence. I get ya, it's about finding what's right for you I guess. I haven't used any pad I feel is perfect for me yet, but I'd like to try another cloth pad, hence the questions about the artisan.

Any idea if they fix artisan hayate design yet so dust doesn't get caught so badly?
