I just got this one:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B014OOWMHQ?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00

I love it. Perfect size all black no logo on it at all. And it has stitched sides. Fits my desk great, keyboard and mouse. It has a good surface to it for control. I don't think its for speed it has some friction to it....

Hey y'all, slight update

Got my Zowie G-TFX or how ever they break down that name.

Been using it for exactly one week now, and I got to say, I like it a lot.
For me, the most important thing with a cloth pad is that it doesnt "stick" to the mouse when making small adjustments. Many of the so called faster pads tends to be fine for more steady and quick movements, but when you slow down and try to move the mouse a couple of millimeters, it sticks to the pad and makes it very hard. Therefore I've always preferred the goliathus control type heavy weave pads, as this tends to be much less of an issue.

Anyways, where I was going with that, was that I haven't experienced that problem with the G-TFX yet. With the talent it wouldn't be a huge problem until the pad got sort of warm and humid, and then it was a real issue. This Zowie pad hasn't had that problem yet, though I've only been using it for a week, so I can't say for sure what will happen in time.

Either way, I don't think the pad is "as fast as a hard pad" or any of that nonsense. I have been using several hard pads (SS SX, SS 9HD, Razer Destructor 2 to name just a few) and they are a million times "faster" in my opinion. The G-TFX is pretty dense and doesn't offer that much sponge-like friction as a puretrak talent for example, but it is just a cloth pad at the end of the day. I really cannot understand the comparison to a hard pad. Maybe with super quick swipes the static friction is perceived as the same, but honestly, as I write this, I can't even understand how anyone would think that either.

TLDR;
Pad feels great for the first week of using it, it's not at all as fast as a hard pad, it doesn't feel like a hard pad or even a hybrid pad to me, it feels just like a cloth pad that is not too soft or spongy.

That's an interesting pad, but I have such an asymmetrical setup for gaming that I could never fit my keyboard on the same pad as the mouse. redface.gif

That pad appears to come in three sizes, so that shouldn't necessarily be an issue.

Little warning regarding the G-TFX.
Been using it for under two weeks, and the most commonly used area is already dramatically slower and "swampier" than the fresh and less used corners of the pad. So much so that I'm about to swap back to the Goliathus Control.

BUMMER! this pad really seemed promising to begin with.

Thanks for the tip. It's slightly less gaudy looking than the goliathus, but still not that low key
