Smoothest cloth mousepad?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. I came online today to ask a simple question. Which cloth mousepad, or mousepads if multiple, are known for the most friction-less glide? And for this, I need a solid, accurate answer, otherwise people would just mention their favorites. I'm talking stats like friction coefficients and so on, if such data exists. Thanks in advance! smile.gif

PS: Starting/Stopping friction is very important. Being able to track in one direction and change to another effortlessly is crucial.

I'd say Xtrfy, but in terms of cloth pad I've only owned that and a Qck+ before that.

I can tell the Xtrfy excels in every conceivable way imho. Its really smooth clothing material they use for that one. Its also hard to push and cause 'depressions' so it wont cause increased friction

I've never used one myself but I hear the Roccat Taito are faster than most cloth pads.

I personally find all cloth pads to be slow or gets slow soon after, I have a G640 with me now but I barely use it.

The logitechs are the same material as Qck+ pretty much. Try an Xtrfy and you'll not regret it wink.gif

xtrfy pads feel really smooth and there are quite big ones available. If you want a smooth softpad and are ok with the sewing go for it!
A rather expensive alternative is the hayate otsu, but those wear out way too far; although the feel when you use it for the first time is crazy good.

Infensus OP are faster, but feel a little weird.

can you compare durability between raiden hayate (otsu) and hien?

I really love artisan pads glide-wise. But i fell like the glide begins to change a little bit after 1 month on a hayate and maybe after like 3 month on hien; This is not what i want for an expensive pad.

I hate it when the tracking on mousepads changes over time. It's happened on all the ones I've owned so far. Sad fact of life, or..?
