I find that hard to believe. Just about anybody with a cloth pad has issues with it. I hear it works fine on hard pads and a higher sensitivity but then so did my old g5. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone over a deathadder or mx518. Best Buy actually marked them down and stopped carrying them because they were getting so many returns.

Exactly. It's especially stupid the lengths they went to marketing it and whoring out so many pro players to endorse it when they should have been working on more important things. Guarantee they all use their regular mx518's when they aren't in front of a camera.

$90 mouse with only a 1 year NA warranty might I add. I'm kinda glad that Puretrak is actually offering 3 years standard.

Price to warranty ratio, shape/weight, and sensor performance are my 3 main concerns

I'm quite content with a Xai on a Puretrak Talent. And I was content with it on a QcK+ before that. Those two pads together span a fairly large portion of the cloth pad demographic.

Thank you for your support. We will announce preordering dates via our website, forums, and facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/puretrak) - We will most likely have special pricing for preordering as well so this would work towards your advantage.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

For those asking about the photo of the bottom of the mouse, I will provide that for all to see very soon. I am waiting to receive a branded sample to show case. I will provide this ASAP as I know many of you are patiently waiting to see the sensor position.

For those being concerned with the sensor needing to be absolutely 100% in the dead center, I highly suggest reading my previous post in which I brushed up on why this sort of "illusion" doesn't necessarily apply to all sensors. Some of you, Skylit (Hi back by the way ) for example, are considered avid aficionados of the mouse/sensor world so please feel free to chyme in here at anytime regarding your insight and experience on this specific subject. I'm not trying to tell anyone they're wrong, I just see a lot of clouded information on certain subjects being thrown around and simply want to get the right information out there.

it is a myth that center is best, but one thing is for sure.

Mouse sensor position depends on the type of movement you create with your arm or wrist. If u tend use the wrist more(highsens), people will perfer it higher than center, because they want more degree of freedom. While other ppl like it center because it makes their wrist movement less sensitive, because of rapid arm movements, which destabilize hand coordination. Rarely people like the mouse sensor lower that center. I personally hate it (but I know only tested one mouse that has it positioned liek that).

It will probably be best if the sensor is below the middle knuckle or in between front part of ur middle and index fingers, depending on ur handsize. In the end center is usually the best compromise

I'm no pro, but I'll take slight positive acceleration over angle snapping any day of the week.

Mine work great @ 450dpi and 2.4sens in game cs1.6 which consider low sens. I also had no prob using on my Qck as well as my 9HD.

There are pics of the pros using the xai and qck wat top lan tournies. Now you wouldn't use a crap product or one with lots of accel if money was on the line. Also most pros used the MS1.1 and MS3.0 before the Xai/Kinzu.

Its called a sponsor, the kids are getting paid to use them. Take away the sponsorships and you would see a lot less people using the Xai or kinzu, especially the kinzu lmao.

Steelseries loves to claim that rapha uses a Xai on their website but he actually uses a WMO with a freaking steelseries sticker on it even during huge tournaments.
