That thing looks identical to me Trance. Now spill some water droplets on it and see if they float or absorb smile.gif

Here you go:

So as you can see, the droplets indeed stay on top and don't absorb.

Nice, seems like a great value over the Zowie TF then. The TF is my favorite mousepad for work. It's a little too slippery for me in FPS but for those that like plastic speed and anti-moisture, it's the best.

I also ordered a Cougar Speed 2 L (450x400mm). Not sure which mouse mat this is most similar to though:




I haven't used a mouse mat quite like this one before. The surface is ridiculously smooth, makes my QCK feel ROUGH by comparison. The issue with this pad though is that it looks like there's tiny little hairs standing on end perpendicular to the mat.

The surface is definitely cloth only and I'm having a hard time deciding which one to use as my main mat since this one feels super slick when in motion and the static friction isn't too bad either.

Speed looks more similar to the GTF-X.

I believe they are the same just like Glorious Mousepads and Reflex Labs are the same, companies seem to use the same manufacturers for their mousepads.

I have a glorious and this speed pad is much, much smoother in surface texture and significantly faster in regards to static/kinetic friction.

Is this actually an option? My glorious pad refuses to get even no matter how many books I put on top of it.

The Glorious pad came with this in the packaging:



So I've just been going by those instructions on getting pads flat. Moisten problem area -> Iron it (not rubber side).

I wonder what made Cougar use a very different texture. The texture in the original version texture was literally painfully rough and it was made up of holes. You see can see the orange base right through them.

I hope this doesn't smell as bad as the previous one. The older control had a horrible chemical scent that lasted for weeks. Mine still smells slightly bad.
