No, my Classic Raiden XSOFT is soft but bounces up instantly. The Ninja FX Shidenkai XSOFT or Classic feels like a soft even though, I don't have experience with a soft that's just what I would classify it as. It's not as soft as the old Shiden XSOFT which felt like it conformed to my hand/wrist. If I put my elbow into it for 10 seconds it would leave sort of an indentation I need that. Don't know where to get this type of Poron material

Question for Hien FX users. Have you noticed a change in speed with use? I'm debating on the raiden and hien and really want the hien.

kind of... it's not a big change though, and it feels smoother with more use. I think this is one of few pads that gets better with use.
Raiden is problematic with all the sensor incompatibility.

I only have the FX version, but as far as I know, it's the longest-lasting one. Zero is a close 2nd.

Has anyone compared the old Kou to the new version? I'm curious if they fixed the horizontal glide being slower.

Also, is there any particular sensor that is compatible with the Raiden?

Hero & Mercury sensor in Logitech mice.
I haven't had a single spin out using GPro Wireless over many 100s of hours of play time, I play on 60cm/360 so I really throw my mouse around a lot too.
No problems.

It's pretty consistent for me man. I'm using the mid hardness though. I can't say the speed has changed much with the pad my aim feels consistent and so does the glide. I think if anything the mouse skates may have 'worn in' cause I was using a new mouse at the same time I started using the pad.

This is by far my favorite artisan pad that I've used (I've never used a raiden though) it feels pretty durable from the surface. Using the XL HIEN WINE RED MID to be exact. Didn't even take me much time to get used to and I've been aiming fantastically across the board. I do miss the thickness of the qck heavy but my consistency on this pad is perfecto! Recommend it bud.

I have both and i prefer the hien. Raiden's texture is amazing but it doesnt work well with a lot of my mice. Hien is kinda rough but this isnt a dealbreaker. No change in speed although felt smoother with use, or maybe i just got used to it. Also worth noting that dust doesnt seem to get stuck in between the fibers, unlike the fx zero which is a huge dust magnet i felt i had to wash it every other week..
