The only problem is I have a clear glass desk so the RAT just doesn't track. As I was using a Logitech MX Performance mousemats weren't much of a concern. I have an ancient Lian L M-2 metal pad which is tony and some cheapo Allsop pad. At the weekend I tried it on my desk at work, just a slightly textured white laminated call centre desk and was amazed how much the tracking was improved over the pads I have.

I'm looking at the Razer Vespula due to the wrist rest and visual design but some say is good others (like the poster above) don't seem impressed at all with anything Razer mated to the RAT series. Reviews of the GLIDE 9 seem excellent but the red colour is a killer for me and may be visually distracting for me in game. The Glide 7 looks like it came from a 1980's yuppie apartment so thats out too sadly. Any ideas what the killer mat is for the RAT 9. I'm an FPS BF3 nut btw. Thanks.

Have a look at some of the Roccat Mats, I was using a Roccat Taito before I bought the Glide 9, I've had a Razer Sphex as well and didn't really rate it, so I'm inclined to agree with Skull3h's opinion on Razer.

I'll be honest, I think you should go for the Glide 9, trust me, you wont notice the colour after 5 minutes anyway and bearing in mind it costs about the same as the Razer it's much better value for money.

How does the surface hold up on the Glide 9? My MMO will be delivered this Friday. Can't wait! I'll probably order the Glide 9.

Well I think I posted that I had an MMO 7 somewhere in this thread. But either way I'm saying it now. Actually just got the RMA back yesterday, it was broken for a while.

Only been using mine a few weeks with some pretty intense gaming sessions, most mats I've had in the past usually show some sign of wear by now, this still looks like new with no scratches or marks.

I believe they have switched the laser from a 5200 dpi to a 6400 dpi? I think a lot of the tracking problems can be attributed to how well the laser aperture seems to collect debris (like dust and hairs). I keep a q-tip on my desk all the time because it needs cleaning frequently. That's not a bad price to pay for the normally excellent operation of the mouse. I do have an issue with mine that's occurs rarely, but I think it's a wireless issue of some kind and so would not affect the wired mice. There has also been an issue with the pointer moving slightly when you lift the mouse. They modified the aperture a couple of years ago to address this issue, which improved greatly (but not perfectly). I don't know if the newer units still have the same issue or not.

It's still a great design though. It's perfect for my hand, and I love the weight. The added buttons that the MMO7 has should be sweet.

My MMO7 and RAT9 are both 6400 dpi and I haven't had any of the tracking problems with either.

I'm in agreement with Mergatroid over the keeping the laser aperture clean, I mean if you covered your eyes in dust and debris etc, you wouldn't be able to see much either.

HI thanks for the reply and suggestions. I'm in Ireland and in spite of the huge gaming community here (relative to population) there are very few place to actually buy in bricks and mortar stores. I can't seem to find the GLIDE 9 anywhere but I did manage to locate a GLIDE 7 for under 20 Europes relatively locally which seems like a really good price and if it doesn't suit I might be able to bring it back. Keep seeing images of it online with both a robot image on it and one with silver base with white claw marks. Have they changed teh designs recently? How do you guys rate the 7 versus the 9. Online the 9 comes in around the 40 euro mark. I'd be willing to pay that for quality (god knows after years on consoles I need all the help I can get as it seems like I'm doing a Bodyguard in BF3 jumping into the line of bullets).

I've tried the Rocketfish or whatever from local BestBuy, the Razer Vespula, and now the CM Storm Control-RX

The Control-RX matches up perfectly well. I got fed up with the terrible wear on the Vespula - either the pad isn't very durable or the Rat7 is just too abrasive for non-cloth pads. Plus I got much better at shooters lately to where the wrist rest was hindering me anyway, I needed more room to track. But the Control-RX feels much better and probably won't show any wear

I had been toying with the idea of a new mouse, but this mousepad made me like it all over again. The mouse-pad looks cool too. Definitely recommend.

Hi Juris,

In the US it's marketed under the "Cyborg" brand and EU as "Mad Catz" hence the different logo on it, at least that's what I think it is lol, as the mice are the same as they have different logos as well depending on where you buy them. (Then again I used the UK Mad Catz online shop for some spare batteries for my RAT 9 and they've got a Cyborg logo on......)

I've used a Silicone mat in the past , but once I started using Aluminium theres no comparison, obviously everyone's preferences are different.

From a quality point of view, the finish the 9 is excellent and I'm a right fussy bugger for things like that.

I think the best thing to do is take your mouse along to the shop and ask them nicely if you can try your mouse on it

Are there any brick and mortar stores to actually walk in, and buy the Glide 9?
