(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

Cheers for the clarification, makes sense considering how many brand names the company seem to have adopted over the last few years. I've decided to try out the GLIDE 7 just because I can bring it back quite easily and a family member can pick it up for me later today. If no joy I'll drop it back and order a 9.

@Snots: I think the guys here would need to know where you live to help you find a B&M store near you. I'm getting my 7 from a retail store in Ireland so Im' positive other places stock them to see in the flesh. Where are you based?

Had my glide 9 for a month or so its had some heavy use and looks like new smile.gif
In comparison the aluminium razer mat pitted after a few weeks so as for quality the glide wins hands down, I have not even cleaned it to often either and had no tracking problems.
The only times I had the tracking problem a quick blow seems to work tongue.gif (old skool ftw).

Actually Madcatz used to be a separate firm and Saitek/Cyborg bought them out a few years ago, if anyone remembers the Madcatz panther XL joystick from back in the day another innovative control method for FPS games.
I actually still have a few of those in a cupboard somewhere.... (and the tshirt biggrin.gif)

Try the Razer Goliathus, its seriously the only item from Razer I will ever buy. Very high quality and the 'Borg loves it.

Just ordered the Glide 9 from Amazon for $53.00. I sure hope it's worth it. My MMO 7 should be here Friday. The Glide next Thursday. I just want everything to track properly.

Just got the GLIDE 7 and......its doesn't really glide does it. Not compared to my little Lian-Li M2 aluminium pad. There is a lot more resistance than I expected and for some reason while I know my RAT 9 has a bit of lift at the front it seems more prominent on the 7 than my other 2 crappy pads which is odd..

I haven't gamed with it yet but I'll try it for a night and then may just return it if I'm still being Dunkirked on BF3. The base is very grippy and the quality is nice but I just don't think its going to suit my needs. As another poster way back on the thread said it is a real princess and the pea pad in that any speck of material, in my case a salt granule, under the pad gets magnified and appears like a speed bump which may be a killer for some. Still, live and learn, and return, no loss.


Edit: Just a little update on my thoughts on the 7. The force required to make the cursor move initially appears to be quite high so if your the kind of gamer who makes a lot of starts and stops you might find the start force applied causes you to overshoot when your looking to stop moving. I think for sniping this could lead to your brains ending up taking a vacation from your skull rather than the other guy which is not positive.

I was wondering from the GLIDE 9 users would you call it a fast pad. The review on this site states

"The friction is higher so you will feel more drag as the mouse moves over it. In fact the speed of the G.L.I.D.E. 9 is probably one of the slowest hard mats available"

Is this true. I'm looking for ice skate not roller skate in a mousepad and was hoping there would be little or no resistance and a good turn of speed. Any opinions. Cheers guys.

Well I have the sensitivity high for FPS games so find I move my hand very little the resistance feels fine, when using the mmo7 in WoW I have it set lower and move a lot more but feels fine.
Though at the end of the day it's personal choice how anything feels...
