Glorious PC Gaming Race vs Zowie G-SR, mousepad comparison

post #1 of 99
Thread Starter 
So, I'll preface this post by saying that, before these two pads, I never really used soft mouse pads. Hard pads have been my preference since my Razer ExactMat that I got when I was in high school. Prior to using these two pads, I was using the Razer Sphex. About a month ago I figured I'd try out soft pads by starting with something cheap, so I ordered the Glorious PC Gaming Race XXL mousepad from Amazon. To be completely honest, it was a big change but I adjusted quickly to the pad and really do prefer the control and feel of soft pads now. I play FPS games and lowering my sensitivity a bit, combined with a soft pad has improved my aim and overall gameplay a ton.

This is also my first real post on these forums, so go easy on me! If anyone has any questions, just ask and I'd be glad to answer.

After playing with the Glorious pad, I decided to order and Artisan Hayate Otsu to see how a faster soft pad would feel but have yet to receive it and it's been over a month (still waiting on it to arrive from Japan, if it ever does). To hold me over, I ordered the Zowie G-SR after reading some reviews

My first impression was that the two pads seemed similar, but after playing with both for a while, I've definitely started noticing the differences. There is less starting resistance on the G-SR and the glide is smoother but definitely a bit slower. The G-SR also seems to be the slightest bit softer than the Glorious pad.

The G-SR is newer and hasn't had much play, but as of now I do prefer the Glorious pad because it has a faster glide. I'm going to play with the Zowie for a bit and see if my opinion changes. I'll report back if it does. I can only assume that the Artisan pad will be faster than both of these?

Here are some pics comparing the two. If anyone wants to know anything else about these pads, just ask. Obviously the sizes are completely different, so I didn't include a size comparison photo.

I doubt the artisan pad will be faster than these two, I'm using the glorious XL heavy now and don't find it that fast.

I'd say the main difference is the GSR is more 'flat' and afaik the blue one had a coated top layer -- not sure if they changed that with the black version or if its still coated
The glorious pad seems to be uncoated and also works really well with sweat (ie doesn't stick) but the vertical/horizontal glide is slightly different?

I can't really compare with the new black GSR cause I never used it.. but for those on a budget the glorious xl heavy is definitely a good starter.. challenges the qck heavy a little at least

G-SR is pretty good, but Infensus OP is way better. Thicker and smoother glide and appears to be of better quality as well. Though, nothing beats a Qck+ in terms of control/glide together. Regarding Artisans, i've never tested and won't since their price vs longevity is not worth it.

What you guys think Puretrak Talent vs Glorious XL ? Also heavy or non heavy version of Glorious?

Puretrack talent i've tried in a haste only, and it appears to be quite nice all in all but can become inconsistent after a while. Can't comment on the other, never tried it.

Any reason why this particular pad? Edit: In fact after checking some info about it, it does look quite nice (texture). I might pick one up as the next. 5 mm is perfect thickness as well. Don't like stitched edges though. Love the text on the pad however: "Glorious - PC gaming race" lolz.
