stitched edges are the best just hang your pad off your table so you never go over it.

Maybe its the way you use your mouse, but I've never had problems with pads that had no stitching. Of course it frays, but for me, it starts fraying after a year and a half. By then, I don't mind buying a fresh new mousepad. I like pads with no stitched edges because they feel more comfortable on my forearm when swiping my mouse. Of course, pads with no stitching stays flat a lot easier.

So i had the 5mm version now for like a month or so, and i really like it. Feels in my opinion smoother and slightly faster than the regular Benq branded G-SR, which honestly might just be down to it sitting 100% flat everywhere. No matter what i did on the regular one it was always slightly convex at the sides. The design also looks fantastic, and because of that black mice stand out more on it. I don't care much for the HLTV branding, but thankfully it's fairly subtle, mostly because of the understated logo design.

However i don't think i can recommend it because of its high price, honestly you can buy a Steelseries Qck Heavy for pretty much half the price which is a little softer, slightly thicker, but doesn't feel quite as even as this and other Zowie pads but well... it's half the price. I bought it because i really liked my experience on previous Zowie mousepads, but found the stitching to be irritating to my wrist (I don't like to hang the pad over the desk), and because it isn't just plain black. So for me it's worth it, but to be frank if all you are looking for is a good thick pad, then the much cheaper alternatives from Steelseries/Roccat etc. are just fine. thumb.gif

As for fraying, well i'm in the same mentality as SynergyCB on that and usually don't use a pad for more than a year.

I have a feeling that mouse-pads fray quicker if the middle of your forearm is the anchor point, due to it constantly rubbing on the bottom of the pad. I have my elbow as my pivot point on an arm rest and after ~1 1/2 years I have little to no fraying.

You lose too much mousing space which at my sens is an issue. It's not just the stitches it's that once you hit them that's it, the mouse stops. You lose like 5cm on the width and even more on the vertical. If you never go near the edges It's of course not an issue. But as I know they are there I have to stop even shorter to avoid hitting them and having a dead stop resulting in even more loss of space again

I have no issue with stitched edges and prefer them over non-stitched. The QCK edges would start to peel up after 6 months or so and it looks terrible. It could just be the quality of QCK? I hated those things. They got so dirty so fast and you could see the worn spots after a few months.

My PSR has been going strong for over a year. Never had to clean it with water and just dust it with a brush every few weeks. No worn in spots and the glide still feels great. Will never go back to QCK.

They do suck for braided cables though. The braid gets snagged on the stitching.

I'm owning ZOWIE G-SR blue, Zowie by BenQ G-SR and the new Zowie by BenQ GS-R-SE hltv.org edition. The black one has different surface than old blue one, the new hltv edition one it's almost same as the old blue one but the hltv logo printing makes it feel different. I love the old blue one, because it's easy to stop mouse on it, the friction on old g-sr is perfect.

I said this, the black stitched one is a slower glide for sure. The Non-stitched blue one was much faster but the satin top gets a little weird if you game near a window or with humidity
