I don't see any similarities between the two except stitched edges?

did you look at the close-up of the Dechanic Control?
or are you talking about the Speed?

Yeah, I looked at it, but it was on my phone. The texture does look different when I looked at it again on my computer.

it's very very different. it's a "flat" weave with little holes in it, like Goliathus Control, if you have used that one.
very nice IMO.

A good mouth pad can definitely make a difference, but it's not a very large one. Unless you have a really bad pad, where you can feel the mouth sticking to it and if there is a difference between moving it fast and slow.

I personally absolutely fell in love with hard mouse pads and could never go back to a cloth after feeling the smoothness of it.

In your case it comes down to the quality of the generic pad. If it glides and tracks reasonably well, does not stick and gives the mouse a manageable lift-off distance, it is all good. The difference will just be different feel of a different pad.

But sticking friction is the enemy of precise mousing.
Cheap pads or unfitting desk surfaces, but also lots of dirt in between pad and mousefeet, can give huge amounts of sticking friction. Because it becomes harder to set the mouse in motion than it is to keep gliding, like an unusual initial resistance, the result is jerky mouse movement and oversteering,
