Mine flattened out by itself in about three days without any books or anything.

And I can't say much about durability as I only used it for a month and then went back to G-SR. That one is holding up quite well.
How was it at the end of the month?

ok so the same consistent rubber base, different surface: g-txf is rough and fast, g-tf is silky and more controlled.

good question... i've been waiting for caseking to have them available and now i'm unsure which one to get. i mean, i'm happy with my talent, but its spongy base is definitely noticeable (as with any cloth pad using this standard base).

did you feel like you had to lower your sens due to the g-tfx being faster, compared to the g-tf or other cloth pads?

I never mess with my sens these days, the way it is now just fits me and accommodating for new surfaces every time would mean relearn muscle memory etc. But the surface wasn't too fast and my sens is low enough that it doesn't make too much of a difference anyway.

I have this pad as well. The build quality and the design are great. The size is awesome, there is no stupid logo and the stitched edges make sure the pad is probably very durable.

However, I'm not using this pad either at the moment. Although my G100s tracks well on the pad, it seems my frankenmouse (Zowie AM sensor), my FK, and my Kinzu V3 all have a bit of negative accel on it below their max tracking speeds. This isn't unusual but I was hoping it would be miraculous in terms of tracking. Perhaps the fact that it's not completely flat yet has an impact on tracking, too. I might use this in the future if I find the right mouse for it or maybe just because it's so large and well-made.

G-SR is silky, GTF Speed is the predecessor for the GTF X and basically has the same surface, but a worse rubber base.

lol. i had the correct pads in mind but messed up the names. so it's the silky cloth g-sr vs the black g-tfx which appears to be made of a kind of diving suit material.

yep, i had a g-tf about 3 years ago and exchanged it for a talent as it didn't lay flat even after the heavy book therapy.

edit: i watched snow shovel's reviews of both pads, and lastly he stayed with the g-tfx over the g-sr.
