I meant. How is the LOD of the GTFX with the 3310 mice (like the Avior 7000 and the KPM) compared to the puretrak talent with the same mice?

Also, Are there any tracking issues with it?

*Edit* You mean't the G-TF X, if any seller has it available.... My mistake.

Rexflo.net has em but, i am not sure if they are trustworthy.

Im pretty sure Rexflo is legit http://www.zowiegear.com/index.php?i=where2buy&p=north-america&n=57
They're asking far too much for shipping tho.

@HiTechPixel how does the G-TF X rubber layer compare to Artisan's SOFT/MID?

I'd like to know this too, I quite like silicon hybrids and their durability/cleanability/static friction is amazing but they're all too small and too little dynamic friction for me

I decided to try the GTF-X today. I would say the speed of the GTF-X and plastic Steelseries S&S is almost the same.This is my first cloth pad in a loooooong time and I still have to get used to the material and sound, so I cant say yet if the GTF-X is going to be my main mousepad or not. I do hope this mousepad wont attract pet hair. I have 6 cats and I dont want to daily clean my hardware tongue.gif

EDIT AFTER 2 HOURS IN USE: OK! perhaps the GTF-X attracts pet hair, perhaps not, but it definitely does attract cats! One of my cats loves the smell of the GTF-X

How does the stopping power on the G-TF X compare to the S&S?
post #177 of 358
Stopping power compared to the S&S feels the same. Right now the GTF-X is a bit out of control, because I am using new mouse feet bought fom Takasta. I figure I need to wear those down a bit in order to find the perfect control for me. I had the same issue with the S&S.

Do note that the S&S is a bit more grainy than other plastic pads (more control).

This is my opinion of course.

lol
You can cover your pad with some plastic cover to avoid cat's hair on it (When not using it ofc). but, if the cat decides to remove the cover (with its claws) then you are screwed biggrin.gif

I thought more grainy pads gave more speed due to lower surface contact. Thanks for your opinon tho.

I have compared the S&S, 9HD and G440. S&S definitely offers more control.

I would like to answer this question as well and I know I'm a bit weird: I picked the GTF-X over the G-SR because I don't like silky. I'm always afraid that the silky stuff will attract pet hair. You should see my desk, it's super clean and minimalistic, so that cat hair (6 cats) wont find a chance to get stuck somewhere.
