Hard pad way to go for humid environment ?

I've been experiencing friction changes to my mousepad(s) most of them being cloth(Razer Gigantus, Razer Goliathus Control, Zowie GSR Blue). Friction seems to change, which throws my aim off a bit and is starting to get a bit annoying to deal with. My question is to deal with this, should I just buy a hard pad? If so.. any recommendations?

I got a custom ordered glass pad, but cleaning it every hour or so is a bit of a pain, and also the cold feel on my arm is not very pleasant.

Before you ditch cloth have you tried a qck heavy? They don't have that satin finish and aren't effected in the same way.

there's also things like the ASUS ROG Scabbard which is almost plastic but is actually a fabric I did not find it change a lot with humidity, but it is quite fast.

Been a while since I touched my Qck heavy, but if my memory serves me right, I ditched it because of it feeling very inconsistent.

Glide wise my current favorites are Gigantus and Goliathus Control. They seem to have that speed and also good stopping power. However these friction changes suck a lot. Surface on Scabbard looks similar to Mionix Sargas(not sure if it actually is) which I wasn't a big fan of. Thank you for the suggestion. Might consider it, depending how it feels to move vertically and horizontally also could you compare it's glide to something like GTF-X, Gigantus,Goliathus Speed ?

it's not at all like a Sargas. it doesn't feel like a cloth pad at all. it's very thick and stiff weave, more like a hardpad than a G-TFX.

it's smoother than a G-TFX, but I feel like it's a little faster too. static friction is also a bit better than the G-TFX.
using Hyperglide for MS 3.0.

If you're willing to dish out the money, maybe try an Artisan? I have one and it deals with my sweaty ass hands very well so there's no change in glide or friction.

Just need to find which has similar glide and stopping to Razer Gigantus or Qck . Although my favorites are Gigantus and Goliathus control since they worked for a while until they got affected.

If you want something similar to Qck go for Zero. XSoft or Soft are your best choices if you want something similar or better than Qck.

If you want something with stopping power and lower initial motion than the Zero, I'd recommend Hayate Kou. I'm sire others can recommend other pads, but those two (especially the Hayate Kou) I'm more familiar with. Just lmk if you want me to describe how the Hayate Kou feels and I'll gladly write more on how it is. Been using it for a while now.

Always thought Hayate being very fast pad with almost no control.. based on just research. Whats the difference between xsoft and soft? Does xsoft feel like your hand sinks into the pad? my hand usually heats up a bit while playing, so sinking is not really an option for me. I usually also avoid coated pads, cause my hand/arm sticks to them after a while and that's not very pleasant.

buy a dehumidifier or stick salt around your room, if u don't like hard pads don't bother with them
