When it's really humid the mouse pad feels horrible using for long gaming sessions. It is hard to describe, but I never had issues with my puretrak talent, or the G-RF pad.

In my experience if you live in a humid area or near a window the g-sr (old one) will begin to feel either very slow or super quick

I didn't last a week with it
Using qck heavy ATM and waiting to see razers new pad

G-SR Is one of my most hated pads I ever bought.
Its initial friction when doing minimal movements are so stupid high.

It have more friction then any pad I ever tried.
Seems to vary, some feel its "fast", some agree with me with it being super slow when doing tiny movements.

Just sitting in windows etc doing work is horrible, because of the constant start-stop small movements.

Doing continuous movements then its fine, but I dont do that really.


Tried to get used to it for 2 weeks before I rage quit the stupid pad and rolled it back and threw it in the drawer, its been there ever since.

Can also say that a 1 year old QCK Heavy have WAY less initial friction then my G-SR have, Heavy was just way faster in every aspect.
Some satin pads are just horrible imo. Glorious is better imo.

Glorious 5mm XL was a better fit for slightly more friction but not the weird initial friction G-SR have.

G-TFX is one of my favorite pads however.

Yeah I was very happy with my G-TFX. But idk if its too worn now (Ive had it for maybe half a year) cause it kinda sucks...
My Xtrfy pad is actually better atm. I guess the G-TFX doesnt last very long

TF freshens up very nicely after a wash. Mine are quite old and still feel like new after a wash. One at work, home, and gave one to a friend. I've always run them on delicate cycle / luke warm water with some towels and no spin dry. Press between a towels with flat weight on top. YMMV on the washing machine though, try hand washing if you are worried about a fold, it can happen and will ruin it.

Waiting for my cm storm swift-rx pad... and hoping it'd be something like goliathus speed or Roccat taito. Although been waiting over a month to get it...

Ye was looking to try Swift-Rx myself but seems they are not even available in my country, so skipped it biggrin.gif

Did not know about the new Razer pads either, so will be waiting for that and see what they look like, finally they increased the height of the pads and skipped the monster logo, looks good.
Now to wait until its released to see what coatings etc are used.



My GTF-X is fairly good still, I dirtied it some though, I bought the first one (Black zowie embroid logo) not the benq edition when it was released and used it ever since with shorter pauses to try new pads.

The problem I have now is that it glides on my new desk (bought an White Ikea Bekant ) and it slides on this desk, did not do on my old one, I had a Ikea Galant but black, the white Bekant seems to be more slippery ;/

Quite annoying, so I used thin doublesided tape to keep it still. But sometimes I want to move the pad if I eat or something like that. And well its not so easy now biggrin.gif

I also have that problem with my G-TFX. But I use a glossy white desk atm so its much better.
The Xtrfy doesnt have this issue, even tho the edges are thicker

Just received my CM Storm Swift-RX and do not like it at all. The movement to left and right is great, and good speed... but once you have to move your mouse up and down... there's way too much resistance.. T_T
