I can confirm the Fnatic Boost Control == smoother pad. Speed is the rougher one, which is just much nicer overall. Control feels a little sticky, which is opposite of what I want from my hard pads. tongue.gif

Buy a starboard, there's a thread on here somewhere. Great hard mouse pad any size you want.

Edit, here's the thread about it:

^Yes.

As seen in the linked thread I've been using mine with no gripes since purchase. Best hard surface I've ever experienced to date. The size customization and price make HDPE sheets second to none (for this surface category) imo.

"To give the gamer more control and command over so much power there is some sort of a smoothing agent incorporated on the mouse chip that gives that different feel, that edge, that authority over your shots."

I have use a MM600 for the past 2.5 years its a great pad. I use the grippy side. It will wear your mouse feet down over time, I just buy feet from Takasta on eBay.

yeah the heaton was discontinued ages ago. real shame, it was a great pad! not so great longevity however, but that's the standard for plastic pads unfortunately.

@munchzilla yeah, if only rolleyes.gif
i guess i've gotten somewhat used to thicker pads by using the 4mm heaton pad for a while. this glass pad is 7mm but it's barely bothering me. the bite out of it does actually help a ton, i'm sure glad i went with that shape.

Quoting this so i can find it again; been looking for a way to make a custom length desk "pad" for some time now.

Pride, honour and purity.
