I use it in a Razer Sphex - Mousesports Edition (Red) - and I haven't experienced any issues at all, is the perfect surface for me.

I tried it also it in a StealSeries QCK but I felt some minor acceleration when moving to a direction and then immediately to the opposite (like left and then right). I wouldn't reccomend textile/cloth surfaces for these mice because:
- Cloth and laser are not good friends
- The fix for the Z-axis issue makes the sensor's lens more likely to catch fluff or lints, so your surface shouldn't be the source of these

I'm using a black cloth mouse pad right now and it works great. It's not as slippery as the harder pads are, but the tracking is excellent (better than my Cyborg pad, but it has two colours and the borders between colours seem to cause tracking problems).

I actually bought a cheap $1.50 cloth mouse pad to try and it worked great until it started falling apart (about three weeks later). So, I brought my old pad from work (round black cloth covered gel pad with a gel wrist rest) and it's been working great.

I've been thinking about one of the all black Razer hard pads but frankly they're way over priced for what you get. They may work well, but they're also marked up well.

I use the Vespula which i find is really good and before that it was the Sphex

On another note on my time with the R.A.T 9 can't fault the mouse one bit except for one thing today another battery has died as the first i received from Amazon had to be RMA'd as a battery in that one had failed so when i got this new unit i was expecting Everything to be ok but after 3 weeks it has failed it says it it charged in the charger unit but when i put it in the mouse there is nothing no life

now when the first mouse had this fault i sent an email to Tech support @ Cyborg but they did not get back to me what should i do this time round try them again or go back to were i bought it from maybe am just unlucky and getting a bad batch of batteries if i do send this back again i'm just going to get a refund and get the R.A.T 7

Any Advice on this matter would be great Amazon might think am at it a second time round tongue.gif

The one thing that has never been a problem on the three RAT 9s I've had is the batteries. The first one had a stuck thumb wheel. The second one would have an axis fail once in a while so I RMAd it. The new one has been working OK, except that I had to change the channel my WIFI router uses because I was getting wicked interference on my mouse. The batteries have always been fine on it though.

I'll be receiving my R.A.T 7 and my Xtrac Ripper XXL Saturday. Has anyone tried it on this pad? I've searched and haven't found anything. I'm worried I just wasted money on a mouse pad....

I'm still having tracking issues with my RAT9. It was working great for about a week after I changed the channel on my WIFI router. Now it's acting up again. I'm wondering if one of my neighbors WIFI networks is interfering with it.

Really, I'm about to give up on it and just put it away and use my Logitech G9x that has never had a single problem. I love this mouse, but I've been having too many tracking related problems with this model. I'm going to keep trying, but I expect one day it will just act up once too often.

Hey guys, one question:

i have a RAT7 and i just checked that a new RAT7 edition was launches ( Contagion ) featuring the new 6400dpi sensor.

Is there a major difference between the old sensor and this new one? Worth changing or not really?

Thanks,
Pedro
