Haven't had the experience of wear or slow and sticky yet.. are you referring to the new ones? Cause he revised them and maybe it's different than the older ones

I experienced that with the blue G-SR, when it was humid it became worse but this one seems to be fine in humidity

I'm living in Turkey which is very hot here (35-40 Celsius degree~) and i sweat a lot and i want a mousepad that doesnt become sticky or become less stable when you sweat. So what do you think is Glorious XL Heavy good for me or not?

I live in Tampa, FL and it's nearly 100% humidity every day here and usually over 90F and own the non-heavy version of the Glorious. Had it about month... it's as good as new right now and I don't baby it.

You talking about THIS pad? This is the new XL pad I have (5mm thickness/heavy).

I'm still using my Puretrak Talent, but I hope this pad will not wear down and get heavy and sticky.
I used the pad a few times and it felt great.

I had to slice the left and right stitched edges of my Glorious G-XL Slim off with an X-ACTO knife. Having the stitched edges really reduces the usable surface of a mousepad. I hate that it's becoming a thing now with premium gaming pads (in the same way braided mouse cables became a thing). I never bump into the top or bottom stitched edges, so I left them on because I don't want the pad to start fraying from the mouse cable or my arm dragging over the edges.

I have to say, I love this mousepad though. I have gotten to the point that I really only like 2-2.5mm thick pads, 3mm absolute max. I just find that the thicker pads give inconsistent glide for me, because I tend to press into the pad sometimes. The Glorious G-XL Slim is one of the only thin, large competitors out there for the QcK+. I've found that the Glorious gives a more consistent response across the various speeds that I move my mouse... it's kind of difficult to put into words exactly... even though the QcK+ is definitely the pad that is most similar in glide speed and feel to the Glorious G-XL Slim. Also the Glorious feels moderately faster, but this may just be because it's brand new and my QcK+ has several months of heavy use on it.

The dream for me would be Glorious pad with same dimensions as the G-XL Slim, but with non-potato branding (am I the only one who thinks that logo looks cheap and tatty?) and without the vile stitched edges. Having to slice off the stitched edges makes it a good 10mm narrower. Oh and to complete the dream, upgrade the base material to the super dense foam like Artisan and Zowie while keeping it 2-2.5mm thick.

I bought the Glorious extended off Amazon, my first mouse pad in a long time, as I got back into FPS with Overwatch. The extended pads look awesome on the desk, I have got to say. It's a really nice pad overall, and pretty slick, although I can't really compare to anything.

My only issue with it, is that it does absorb moisture. Especially in a humid area, or even from your palm. So when it gets damp, it definitely introduced some drag and inconsistencies. There's another similar extended pad on Amazon, at a similar price, that I've seen recommended here a few times but I forgot the name. It has a waterproof coating, and I think I would try that one when this one wears out.

I also ordered some old-school 3m precision pads coming in the mail tomorrow. I always gamed on those in my golden days of FPS, although they did wear out after about 2-3 months or so. Supposedly the newer ones have smaller micro grooves, so it will be interesting to see how the mice glides on those and how quickly it wears. They are kind of small pads, but I've always been a high sensitivity gamer since I could make crazy flicks off center, and still maintain control with tiny mouse movements/strafing with a steady hand.

At the others, I mean if you're drenching in sweat yeah it will get on the pad but I'm just saying it doesn't feel 'sticky' to your hand. I've sweated quite hard while playing and didn't notice any major impacts to my mouse movement

I have both pads as well.
G-SR is much slower, since it have its weird initial friction that is the highest I ever tried in any cloth pad.
Doing minor movements with start-stops is horrid on the pad for me.

Glorious is much better in that regard.

I don't really like either pad however since satin pads are bad imo, and everything effects them, humidity, temperature etc.
