Icemat is pretty good, but for feel I don't think you can beat a good heavy weave cloth mat.

Check it out.

Steelseries sells aluminum, glass, hard plastic, and much more.

They are all great pads assuming you use the right mouse along with them.

Which surface do you think is the best for laser mice? The aluminum mouse pad looks really good.

get the SX if you like but I personally do not like the 'grinding' feeling it produces.

I personally would recommend the S&S, SP, or 9/4HD for your laser sensor.

I'm currently using the Razer Destructor, and I'm liking it very much. You should definitely check it out.

I prefer this one. Costs $5 at your nearest general store. Laser Xai goes like 5-6m/s on that one and never skips. (turn it around to get rig of the edges). Due to size perfect for even the lowest sens, also, for writing . One side is usually more glidable, the other is more resistant. can try it out whichever is best hehe.
