Mousepad Slower Than G-SR?

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm sorry to start a new thread for this, but I've looked everywhere and have yet to find an answer (perhaps there isn't one, haha). I'm looking for a mousepad that offers even more control than the Zowie G-SR. In a perfect world, I would prefer an uncoated pad (the QcK Heavy & Gigantus Team Razer Edition come to mind) but unfortunately neither of these pads are as slow as the G-SR (at least, from what I've researched). I've used the QcK Heavy for many years (both the older and newer versions) so I can confirm that this much is true. However, I've never tested the Gigantus Team Razer Edition myself, so my conclusion that it is faster than the G-SR comes strictly from the perspective of others.

If anyone can suggest a pad slower than the G-SR, I'd love to hear it! So far I've only read: "The G-SR is by far the slowest pad I've owned."

The reason the G-SR is so slow for me is because of the high initial friction, but when moving the mouse, it's faster than the Gigantus or QcK+ in my experience. I just have a really hard time getting the mouse to move, it seems to "stick" in place.

Dont worry it will get slower and slower with time. Just keep it for a year or 2, eat and drink in front of your computer. Mine got so slow that it took me 3 days to adjust when I bought a new qck heavy...

Testing the G-SR vs. my old QcK Heavy (7 years!) and my new QcK Heavy (a couple of months + a machine wash) the G-SR is still slower in its dynamic friction (as well as its static friction, of course). I don't mind the high static friction - in fact I quite like it - because it allows my flicks to stop more precisely. I never feel like the starting resistance is high enough that it could affect micro-adjustments (I've competed on sensitivities between 20cm/360 and 60cm/360). So for me, the slower and more controlled a pad is, the better. If there's something even slower than the G-SR, I'd really love to know... but alas, I have yet to find it!

Yeah, my 7 year old QcK Heavy is significantly slower than my new one. The G-SR is still slower than the 7 year old Heavy, though. Know of anything slower than a G-SR? smile.gif

If you want something even slower than a 7 year old QCK , you might want to look into modifying your mousefeet. Cut them slightly smaller with a box cutter so the corners are not rounded. That will increase the friction by a lot. Or try getting some of those horrible first batch Scream 1 or Nixeus Revel mousefeet tongue.gif

there's also the "blend of material" Puretrak mouse feet, they were so slow on my pads... tongue.gif

I think they are the Original on their website.

Haha, been there done that. I don't want sharp/scratchy feet by any means. My favorite are actually the stock Zowie feet. I'm really bummed that the updated Zowie mice will have 4 smaller feet, because I prefer the slower glide of their old large feet. I'm anxiously awaiting the updated ZA13, and whenever it comes out, I'm curious if I'll be able to place the PCB into the old ZA13 bottom shell, just so I can use the larger feet biggrin.gif

I read that the Cougar Control pad is quite a bit slower than most other pads, but it's texture seems very odd and it has a ton of "waterproof coating" all over it. I'd prefer uncoated cloth. I'm guessing the Gigantus Team Razer Edition is going to be the highest friction uncoated pad? Perhaps @ncck can chime in here wave2.gif

I'm really loving my cougar control (original not 2) pad. there's like no static friction "stickyness" but its also a very slow and controlled glide. Like the razer mantis / goliathus control, but with even more exaggerated features.

Added bonus, it isn't butt ugly like most modern pads with weird graphics all over them, and doesn't have a ****ty stitched/coated edge that feels like poop on the wrist and screws up mouse control when near the edges.

I may end up ordering a DM3 Mini soon, so if I do, I'll definitely take a look at those feet for the Kinzu. Thank you!

Whoo, finally someone who has used the Cougar Control. Thanks for the response! When you say "no static friction stickiness", does that mean it's harder to stop on? I actually don't mind the G-SR's higher-than-normal static friction, because I feel like it makes flicks quite a bit easier. Would you say the Cougar Control is the highest friction pad that you know of? Also, do you happen to know the difference in glide between the original Control and the Control 2? Both are still being sold by Cougar. Thanks again!

Also, since I know you have a ton of pads, do you have any suggestions on something slower than the G-SR?
