Mousepad Slower Than G-SR? - Page 5

post #41 of 52
Btw, I recall a company that made metal (I think it was steel) mouse feet for certain mice, but I can't remember who. Using that instead of plastic would increase friction further on the slowest pad you can find and maybe give you that desired effect.

Update #2: I received the Dechanic Control XL, and it too is faster than the G-SR. For comparison, the Dechanic Control was slower than the Cougar Control 2, but both were still noticeably quicker than the G-SR. So, I'm not really sure what's left at this point. I know that the Cougar Control 1 has a very similar texture to the Dechanic Control, so unless the actual fabric material is noticeably different, I imagine it will be quite similar to the Dechanic Control.

The only other pads I can even start to think of at this point are the Artisan Zero XSOFT (which I've owned - the G-SR is still slower) and the Gigantus Team Razer Edition (uncoated) which I haven't tried yet. I know it's slightly slower than the QcK Heavy (I think that would make it the slowest uncoated pad?) but I hear it's still faster than the G-SR.

I don't want to do anything too crazy with the feet to increase friction (I like the edges of the feet to be rounded still - but no preference if they're PTFE or not). So, with that in mind, is the G-SR really just the slowest option out there?

how's the stopping on the pads you have so far?

also i always thought the hien was slower than the zero, but i'm not 100% sure. Also have you tried the allsop raindrop? Mine was always really slow, but I don't have a g-sr so I can't really compare

The stopping on the G-SR is far and away better than any of the other pads I've used. I've never tried the Hien, so maybe it is slower than the Zero. I had just heard that the Zero (XSOFT specifically) was always the slowest of the Artisan pads. To me, it was about equal with my QcK Heavy (which was heavily used granted, but so was the Zero).

I've never tried the Allsop Raindrop, but have heard it mentioned tons. I'll definitely look into it some more. Thanks!

Anyone else with suggestions? Something tells me I'm going to be stuck with the G-SR after all this stun.gif

Are you not happy with the G-SR?

I'm not unhappy with it, but I do want something slower. I want to push my setup as slow as it can go, before it becomes absurd / unplayable. Relative to that amount, I don't actually think the G-SR is that slow.

I'm convinced someone else has tried a pad slower than the G-SR, lol. I can't be the only one looking for that!

Lol, this is what I say when trying to find mice from companies other than Logitech that have good main buttons and prioritize their quality.

Apparently, I'm the only one that cares... sadsmiley.gif

Looking at it again it seems that most people say that the hien is a little bit faster than the qck heavy, so probably a no go for you after all.

But yeah look into the raindrop.

sorry, i forgot i was a part of this thread smile.gif yes, i do have the black gsr. i have the glorious heavy xl and like i said it is slower than the g-sr. cant compare it to any others bc i dont own any others

dont know where you live but in the US the glorious is about $17 so really not that bad for the size/quality

Still no luck after more and more testing.

This chart from test-gear.pl compares a ton of pads in five different categories. The chart is in polish, so from left to right it reads:

- Speed (how fast the surface was)
- Control (this value was their one subjective column, based on how "in control" the testers felt - the rest of these columns were objectively tested)
- Smoothness of movement (rough vs. smooth texture)
- Feedback (ability to tell where the mouse is on the mat - rougher textures make the user more aware of how much the mouse is moving - glass pads, for example, are so smooth that you sometimes feel lost)
- Grip (how easily the mice stopped)




The pads that interest me the most on this list, are of course the slowest ones (light green text). Unfortunately they aren't really options to buy due to various reasons (i.e. Everglide Titan isn't made anymore). The KESPA pads are super interesting to me, though. I remember reading some forums and watching a video on the KESPA pads in the past, and they were essentially made by the Korean Esports Association with the intention of creating very high control (but small sized) mouse pads for RTS professionals. I'd love to try a pad like this, but of course it's way too small for FPS.

I'm thinking at this point I might need to look into different surface materials. Has anyone ever experimented with leather, microfiber, or silicone pads?
