What is the slowest hard pad or a hard pad that matches the speed/glide of a Roccat Taito?

So out of the blue I was having a major case of a swamp cursor both in-game & on desktop that made me run through my whole setup looking for the cause and I just realized after a heavy rainy day that my Taito was the cause of a swamp cursor in a quite literal sense because Taito as a cloth pad was drenched in Florida spring humidity.

I've gotten used to and do like the speed and control Taito has so I'm looking for a hard pad with a similar feel that would keep my aiming sharp through the Florida summer.

Anything that costs less than the price of a new mouse?

Best hard pad I've used so far is the speed side of a Rocketfish. Nothing else I've used comes close to it except for the couple of Razer hard pads they make, which are usually double the price. Both brands are similar in performance though.

Order one of the Razer and the Rocketfish and you should like one of the two. I have pads like the Logitech G440 hard pad and it's not nearly as good as the ones mentioned above. Even the Steelseries 9hd was better. 3310 sensors also either don't work at all, or barely work on the G440.

Where would you rate the speed of Rocketfish compared to a slick cloth pad like Taito?

I do have a Corsair MM400 that I don't use because it's too slick for accurate recoil control in Battlefield games.

Btw r0ach, I've benefited and most certainly beyond placebo level following your extensive guide on fighting swamp cursor on many fronts (disabling Nvidia audio option was pretty big for me, I think), so thanks.

The Artisan Mousepads worth every penny. They absorb the sweat and humidity pretty well and it has the same friction as a Taito, and that's what you want. Also, the MID version feels like a hard pad, and that's the another thing that you're looking for in a mousepad.

But, if you're not willing to spend so much money in a mousepad, the Allsop Raindrop xl is actually pretty good. http://www.amazon.com/Allsop-Mouse-Pad--Raindrop-Blue/dp/B000XUW8IY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427592841&sr=8-1&keywords=raindrop+xl

I got one like 4 months ago, and it absorbs the humidity pretty well, it (the humidity) doesn't change it's glide. I even tried spilling a lot water on it to test it, and it didn't change the glide that much. But it doesn't feel at all like a hardpad, actually it's even softer than my qck.

The glide is almost the same as the Taito, maybe a bit faster.

I recently tried the Ratpadz and fell in love with it, but had to give up on it because of it's small size. If you used it, how would you rate it compared to the Rocketfish (Insignia now if anyone's interested)?

Any chance you also used the Func Surface Speed or the Roccat Raivo?
