Large, cheap mousepads.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
The rubber base of my supermat is starting to degrade (after many years & washes) so I did a quick search on Amazon for "gaming mousepad" and came across a bunch of large & cheap ones: https://www.amazon.com/Kupx-Official-Extended-Functional-Non-slip/dp/B01263JBUS - this is one, the others are listed middle page under "Compare to Similar Items":

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014CP231W/
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0199GE7RC/
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0152HPXXE/

Anyone tried or know anything about these? The reviews seem decent. The only downside I see is that the width of them is only 12" compared to my supermat's 13.5".

Previously this is the info I had to go on to pick a new pad:

Yeah I could probably find a rubber-backed one locally, but these are longer so it's tempting smile.gif

Go with Glorious's pads. Relatively cheap and bloody good imo. Also a lot of choices size wise.

Kohler! I thought you died or something.

Anyway, I'd say just get a Raindrop. Size difference isn't too bad and it's good quality for the price. Those chepo extended pads are probably all pretty much the same, which isn't necessarily bad.

Large and low price - it's x7-500mp.

I have the Kupx. Two of them actually. It's on the faster end but not significantly so -- faster than MM200 and fresh G240s. However, the thing that stood out to me the most is that it is incredibly smooth due to the fine weave. I have never had a cloth pad this smooth before.

I got a purple-stitched and lime-stitched version. The lime one has a pleasant tennis-ball smell, but the purple one smells horrid out of the package. Had to leave it in the open air for a couple days before it goes away.

They're double the price of these ._.

Almost did die... haven't been playing games for a while.

I don't think I could (or would want to) use anything smaller than the supermat.

Looks like it's only available in Russia.

Hey thanks a lot for the info! Which other pads have you used that you could compare to?

Other pads I have tried:

This:

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Cherry-Gaming-LOL-DOTA-game-mouse-pad-catcher-matte-black/32365271512.html

(Fine weave -- basically a Zowie TF-x clone)

Optically, this is the best cloth surface I have ever tried, as it is perfectly isotropic (unlike pretty much every other cloth pad which has a distinct weave direction).

It is much faster than other cloth pads if you have large, rounded feet and/or applies reasonably low normal force on your mouse, but if your mouse feet have very fine features or that your mouse dig into the surface a lot due to excessive, then the surface interaction becomes much more mechanically complex than simple linear friction response, and will feel a little rough. For reference, it is glassy-smooth with my G100s feet, but with the G Pro it feels a little rough. With the MiCO, despite its small feet, it is incredibly fast due to the weight as well as the shape naturally lending itself to low normal force.

This is the small version, which is quite tiny.

And this:

https://www.amazon.com/ACT-LABS-SBS-SVX-Speed-By-Surface/dp/B00KFWLX7M/ref=lp_7980499011_1_3?srs=7980499011&ie=UTF8&qid=1476222537&sr=8-3

though I don't think it's worth comparing since it is so vastly different.

There is also this:

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41QP1erUZhL.jpg

Which has a finer weave and faster than the QCK. It is also very, very large, much larger than the Kupx, which isn't that large to begin with.


For comparison, the Stackmat is about the same slickness as the Kupx, albeit slightly less smooth. Both of them are much smoother than the QCK, however.


P.S: when I refer to QCK, I am specifically comparing it to the Frost Blue Edition.
