Smoothest cloth mousepad? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
sure, you wear down everything that is made for having friction. you will wear down any mousepad and mousefeet. at some point.

From what I have tested I can say there are huge differences in life span of mousepads. And the xtrfy pads are on the ok side, while the hayate otsu wears really fast....mad.gif

Wanted to chime in ... my Zero MID wears faster than my other Artisan pads. My Hayate Otsu MID is still ok. Hien MID still feels like new, and my really old Raiden XSoft is in a very good shape.

Until I find a mouse pad that's 36 x 18, and has a super slick surface and feels like silk, I'll stick with the Glorious XL.

I don't have the money to buy a custom pad from Artisan XD

Has anyone tried the Roccat Taito before? I felt the surface of it in a Best Buy today and probably would have gotten it had I not already ordered one recently. It felt more durable than the mousepads I've used before, but I no nothing of how well the glide is.

If it's the Control version (which is the only one they carry in store I believe), it is very similar to a QCK. Great mousepad for the money. I have one and used it for a couple months and it seemed very durable. I swapped it out for a Talent so I can't tell you how it will last long term.

Did you try washing your mouse pads thoroughly, like with a good, long soak in detergent or with a washing machine? The cloth pads I have had all went back to a uniform feel over their whole surface after washing them well.

I for example had an Allsop pad for ten years and only threw it away because the cloth started coming off the rubber base. I had put it into the washing machine and it didn't survive that. At that point the cloth was still fine. On my QCK pads, I only threw those away because the rubber base changed and got depressions and wasn't flat anymore, but the cloth surface had no issues.

Yes, I have washed all of my mousepads before. I should have clarified earlier, though. The only mousepads I have are the Razer Goliathus and my current one, which I thought was a Roccat Sense until I found out that it was a complete fake. Surprisingly, even this $5 fake is better than the Goliathus I have. I found the tracking on the Goliathus absolutely terrible. Because of the weave, the mouse would even glide left to right faster than it did up and down. T_T
